Re: Late Teutonic Order

Here's a belated reply to Andreas and the issue of cavalry equipped with spears and crossbows. In the Later Polish army we've been convinced by your arguments, and they are now going to be rated as Elite Cavalry with the Sword-fighting Cavalry battle card. Meaning Elite Cavalry if you don't use the ...

Re: Wars of the Diadochi - TTS Mod League

In a bloody battle with a flank march and tremendous complication, Arkein defeated me 19-12. No generals were harmed in this battle -- in fact, the Generals locked horns in the middle of the game and never disengaged from each other again. This battle went back and forth and back and forth -- at the...

Still nothing new? :(
Front burner right now is the Battle Card (final version with artwork) and the TTS Mod for Triumph. Campaign book and Fantasy Triumph are up after that; Campaign Book is much closer to being finished than Fantasy Triumph.

I have the rules, so maybe I’m just missing it, but what size should the board be?

Re: Scots Common Army Pikemen – Did they have shields?

Shad of Shadversity also has one with Norman style shield and great sword, with shield slung over back. Very awkward but doable and shield is in great position if you overswing and miss your target. Shad ought to spend his time doing other things, I think. I spent 25 years doing full-contact mediev...

Re: Touching and Contacting a unit

As an attacking unit first touches a single defender, must the defender immediately conform to the attacker? Even if the attacker may lack the MP to get into full contact before the defender conforms? What if the defender, in conforming contacts a friendly unit? Enemy unit? Tried to tease answers o...

Re: Mithridatic Generals as Javelin horse?

Maybe some renaming is also in order. e.g. "Bad horse" is there not anything more imaginative? You have to remember that every unit type ("bucket") is a classification that applies to an enormous spread of armies across 4500 years and the whole world. In this case, from Assyrian Pethalle 750 BC, to...

Re: Mithridatic Generals as Javelin horse?

I am currently generating the army List for Mithridatic in both Triumph! 48pt & 144pt. and see that Generals need to be 'Javelin Horse.' In my mind it just does not seem to gel for Generals in an army equipped with powerful, heavy horse, to have to play a role as 'skirmishing horse.' Is there perha...

Re: Historicon

Thanks, Chris.

They also say that they're expanding Fall In by a day, and calling it "Historicon". So our WGC planning doesn't actually change, except that we're not doing anything in July now.
