Re: Camps

DK, Right, I did explain it to them as noted and they get it, it's really important. I was looking more for clariication of the game decision about points towards victory. Their question was more about victory conditions and proportion to victory. So how important? Carry over from legacy systems or ...

Camps

Teaching and playing Triumph! with experienced gamers new to the 'ancients' world has raised a number of questions I have not been able to answer completely. As an example, I have been asked why camps are important, what they represent, and isn't 50% of the victory conditions (more than that if it i...

Re: Making Hills

Considering that The Triumph! Battlefield shape and the terrain placement cards are big improvement over the legacy system, I think there is an oppprtunity to attract new gamers with better looking terrain. This is not to put down practical and portable felt terrain, it just doesn’t bring in new pla...

Re: Army Packs

DK, That would be great to get that data and good timing for us too. We've really had to get into the weeds on a number of fronts in bringing back a figure line with more than 900 original sculpts. For any army we had to: 1- identify the figures we had as to type, weapons, etc. 2- determine what Tri...

Re: Army Packs

Great question. We hope to have Thisle and Rose Miniatures up and running in the next couple of months. We will be selling Basic Armies that will give players all the troops needed to make a Triumph! army. Part of the work we have been doing in bringing the line back over the last couple of years wa...

Re: Making Hills

They look good.

I like the rock idea for steep hills. I just picked up a pack of 4 rocks too.

How do figures do staying in line on the slopes of the hill?

Re: Meshwesh Final Pending Review Notes

DK, Thanks for the quick replies. Just passing on what I hear from consumers. Clearly up to you guys as to what you do and how you prioritize. I am an old database programmer and managed IT for many years so I have a full appreciation of the effort involved. I even ran a help desk back in the day. I...

Re: Spartacus Army in 15mm

Lovely figures and pictures. And another great camp idea.

I do have the makings of a Spartacus army that I was given, but it needs some work (and has too many gladiator types.)
