Re: Placing terrain pieces

But I have to choose my terrain piece (8x12 max) before knowing where in the board it will drop, i.e. before knowing it could have been 16 MU long. Unless we assume that terrain n. 1 (and n.5) drop always on a board edge (as it is, by the way). Is this the case ? 1 and 5 are always on a board edge,...

Re: Placing terrain pieces

Yes, I think it should be more clear. We'll take it on. With so many lawyers around... And again : a piece placed in contact with an edge may be up to 6x 16 MU, but a piece of terrain cannot be more than 12 MU long so it seems a useless specification. I think you misunderstood my response. Edge pie...

Re: Placing terrain pieces

The longer-skinnier size is an option, not an overriding requirement. Your 8x12mu piece is fine. We'll look to see if we need to be more clear, but the idea is to support terrain that is not an oval-ish thing, but is a half-ovalish thing with the other half flat, as if some mighty person with a knif...

Re: Middle Assyrian

Here's the link to the post where I explain (at great length) about how internal allies work, and why we're using them as a representational mechanism.

Re: Middle Assyrian

See the earlier discussion about internal allies. The Middle Assyrian and Early Neo-Assyrian army can take an "internal ally" of ⋅ 2-4x Light Foot (militia or vassal spearmen) ⋅ 1-2x Skirmisher (militia or vassal bowmen) In addition to all the other stands you mention. ...

Re: Normans

The Archers can be used as Early Crusaders... (i.e. Normans in the Early Crusade list)... And yes I would think the elite foot could be a mix of dismounted knights with Swords, Spears, Axes... Rod, I think you're answering the question "what do I do with my stands of Archers" rather than ...

Re: Normans

While we're at it, do the Elite Foot represent surplus milites (whose horses weren't transported)? If so, I'm guessing they would best be represented by dismounted knights with swords combined with spearmen in heaviest armour. The 3-4 Elite Foot in the Norman Invasion army represent Milites whose h...

Campaign Rules for TRIUMPH!

This morning I was looking over the campaign system DS and I have been using to run campaigns at the three big historical miniatures conventions for the last decade, and I think there's a very good chance we'll have it published (Print on Demand) by July 2017. Current concept is: ⋅ One boo...

Re: Washington DC/Baltimore

Hey Greg,

DS is about 20 minutes from you; I'm 30-35, and there are many others. I'm trying to organize some gaming over the holidays; send me your email (to dkuijt39 at gmail) and I'll forward you the link to the Doodle poll I'm using to try and org stuff.
