Re: Sneak Preview of Minas Tirith

The Tower of Ecthelion isn't the final version -- that's just representative of approximate size and position. Since I have to be able to transport the whole thing to Historicon, the whole top (Fountain Court, Tower of Ecthelion, whatever) has to be removable. It will be constructed later and attach...

Re: Sneak Preview of Minas Tirith

Workshop (my garage) not air conditioned. Ugly. Just finished creating four tools out of spare brass stock for embossing buildings with windows and arches. I had been using a nail for arches (press the head in upside down to emboss a circle, then cut three lines below and use a flat-head screwdriver...

Re: mounted samurai bowmen

I also think that the cavalry portion of the Sengoku Samurai list should be changed. From https://www.samurai-archives.com/military.html [quote removed for brevity] The question would then be what should they be list as? Bad Horse might be a better choice. That's a very interesting thought. And the...

Re: Libyans - Possible Battle Card

Putting a call out to the cognoscenti -- what OTHER armies have documented battles where they tried an attack at dawn (or just after, or just before)? If we make this a battle card, we'd like to see what other armies get the possibility to purchase this battle card.

Kwanggun Soldiers of Koryo Korean army

Does anyone have any images of the Kwanggun Spear, Archers, and cavalry of the Koryo Korean army, or recommendations for figures that will work for them? I have a legacy-system Koryo Korean army that I'm looking to bring up to standard for Triumph, but the research I did back in the day didn't have ...

Re: Variable Victory Conditions

Which would promote more conservative play and slow things down I suspect. Or worse. That's what it might do (slow things down) if the breakpoint remained hidden from the players until breaking happened. The original suggestion was that the breakpoint becomes visible at some point (second casualty ...

Re: Variable Victory Conditions

Would it take out any cheese (e.g. sniping indivdual units, taking a camp)? That and if it was more fun would be how I would judge the experiment. Sounds great! (Although I'm a smidge confused by your cheese examples -- there are lots of examples in history of a battle turning on the loss of a camp...

Re: Variable Victory Conditions

Still alternative victory conditions are an interesting point for scenarios. In the recent game we played (Hastings) the Normans lose if Harold holds the field for example. This impacts them in that they have to attack, the English can simply camp in the hill. Without that change to the VC, it woul...
