Re: Wars of the Diadochi - TTS Mod League

I'll take Demetrios the Besieger! Scott, TTS is easy enough to learn -- I know TTS fairly well now, although I haven't played the TTS Triumph mod yet. If you like, you andI could do some TTS practice stuff to help you learn the controls. I've played Gloomhaven, Pandemic, Pandemic Legacy, and other g...

Re: Yet another question.. Optional Contingents in Meshwesh

Found it! Early Hoplite Athens. https://meshwesh.wgcwar.com/armyList/5fb1b9dbe1af060017709508/explore There is an optional contingent of Thessalian Jav Cav, 1-2. If it's optional, why have a minimum of 1? You don't need Thessalians. That's optional. If you take Thessalians, then you must take 1-2. ...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Feudal German lists indicate that the knights can have the mid-battle dismounting battle card, but they do not indicate what they dismount as. I've assumed elite foot, but it doesn't actually say... It's Elite Foot. Ya, I spotted this one and it's fixed, but the fix hasn't been propogated to th...

Re: Heroes & Powers

hey Jonathan, Heroes are those dramatic individuals who can have an outsized impact upon a battle through their inspiration and abilities. Note that “Hero” in this rule does not imply good or evil, and applies to magic users of various types -- and to priests, shamans, and the like. In the game a he...

Re: Dunlendings

I am looking to put together some Dunlending troops to support Saruman eventually growing it out to a full list for Grand Fantasy Triumph. What are everyone's thoughts on troop classes? I've seen other lists treat them as mostly Warband troops with a few cavalry & skirmishers. I was thinking of sta...

Re: Acknowledgement to DBA?

The no turning for flanks and almost everybody following up on doubles I found to be real differences that make the game better. That, and ZOC don't block you, you just move slower. You have a good eye. Those three, plus making movement in base widths (changes to movement caused by throwing away th...

Re: Acknowledgement to DBA?

Buckets of dice games -- that's a design mechanism that I really don't like. Maybe for a skirmish game, where linking a figure to an attack would make some sense -- no, even then, I would want to roll each dice individually. Because if you are pretending that each die represents the attack of a sing...

Re: Acknowledgement to DBA?

No problem. I met up with some of them today and they're more settled on the issue. In fact they're interested in trying the rules in 2 weeks time. (So will let 'sleeping dogs lie' for now.;) Cool. More than that -- I expect when they actually try the rules, they'll realize that it isn't DBA at all...
