Re: Fantasy Playtest # 5 Dark Elves vs Kushan

I've already given her a List and a Dark Elf army, made from my excess figures, to try encourage her back.
She played a lot in her teens, all over the country on the DBM competition circuit, but since she went to University and has been working, has lost time and interest I think.

Re: Fantasy Playtest # 5 Dark Elves vs Kushan

1. As my daughter pointed out, is it fair to pit Fantasy vs Human? I explained that Fantasy paid the extra points for their 'magic' and that the point structure should help balance things out. (I think having Kushan the points cost of their Cataphracts and Elephant made their army physically small.)...

Re: Fantasy Playtest # 4

Thanks. So far so good! Basically played 'semi-solo' as my son and opponent, has Down Syndrome and struggles with the rules. However he has a feel for what he is doing, and can even give me a good beating on Fog2 PC.

Fantasy Playtest # 4

Following last weeks victory by their evil "Undead" cousins, the "Dark Elves" were now keen to take on the Romans. Initially the impetuous, Jav Cavalry (with 'Fierce') were pulled off their hill advantage, and outnumbered by Roman horse, were eliminated. With their rear now threatened, things were l...

Re: 10mm Lord of the Rings / Warhammer

FYI You can see my Undead in action on this Forum. I found having too many Unruly, Slow, Regenerate etc means absolute dependence on good Command Points! BTW: Love the look of your armies!

Re: Defending against Horse Bow

Yes give it a try. Certainly has a psychological effect on how you handle your pips. Just roll in a cup and give it upside down to your opponent. Only he knows what you've got. (& same for his turn)

Re: Defending against Horse Bow

Also the PiP discussion and your explanation David was fascinating. (now I feel better re those 1's & 2's;) I think when one rolls high the tendency is to "do something." (Sometimes it is safer, if unsure, to do nothing! Re: "Blind General" Not sure whose seen, but this method devised by someone on ...

Re: Defending against Horse Bow

Read with interest your discussion on Horse Bow. Close to my heart...My first Ancients army was Parthian, which my daughter used for a number of years on our national DBM tournament circuit. All I remember was that, although she was an average player she rarely lost, but either won on occasion or dr...

Re: Fantasy vs Human Playtest

My mistake. I must have been thinking of this (for unattached Heroes anyway.)
Heroes without the Evasive battle card are lost (removed from the battle) if an enemy
ground unit passes over their space.
