Re: Variable Victory Conditions

Bill raises an interesting point that the general knowing exactly when an army will break could and does impact the play slightly. Similar to issue of the bird's eye view. I am not going to risk attacking that elite infantry, when killing that horde over there is easier and enough points to win. War...

Once William's command gets wrapped it ended for the Normans.

Hastings in 28mm

A few action shots from the Hastings play test. The English held the hill and had a +1 advantage for combat with secure flanks (trees). The only scenario rule was that backing up the hill for the English took an extra command PIP. In the end the battle played very close to history. The English right...

Re: Differentiating similar Troop Type

For Hastings, the Huscarles should definitely be distinguished by armor. All the Huscarles would be in mail, almost nobody in the Fyrd would be in armor (since a suit of mail would be worth a small farm, and they'd have to supply their own armor). You should also have the Huscarles wielding mostly ...

Re: Differentiating similar Troop Type

In addition to the techniques David mentioned. For my upcoming Hastings game I plan to use colored paint dots on the back side of the stands... to identify both commands and elite vs heavy. Much easier for new players and also easier for me to setup the scenarios. I did this with my fantasy game to ...

Re: Hero Implementation

I would think of it more like Gimili and Legolas are attached to a unit of Elite troops.... I.e. if you want to represent them in models, have them flanked on either side by a couple of Elite Elven warriors or others depending on which battle. Then this stand represents a unit they might be leading ...
