Re: Building Hastings Battlefield

It has been changed and there is some evidence it's the wrong hill anyway :) I am modelling the slope of a hill with "semi-secure" flanks if the Saxons setup approximately 2 deep, it is loosely based on some old maps I have, my own tour of the ground plus what I need to make the battle fit...

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.

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).

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 ...
