Please, or if the collective would prefer at this time, give us some ideas to playtest.

The Grand Triumph rules are in nearly-final state; just buffing the wording. We'll get you something very soon.

If we are busy building armies, can we at least assume that a triple sized standard army is applicable?

Any special rules on the army build we should know?

144 pts (triple-sized pts).

If you have no allies, just change all the maxes and mins to triple that listed and build an army in 144 pts.

If you have one ally, build a full normal army from the ally (do NOT use the Meshwesh ally numbers, those are necessarily truncated and most of the rare/unusual/small-frequency troops disappear). For the main army, change the maxes and mins to double that listed. The army is still 144 pts, but it is NOT required to have the ally be exactly 48 -- the ally points could be larger, or smaller, as long as the army fits with the maxes and mins listed for the main army and for the ally.

If you have one of the rare armies that permits two simultaneous allies, use all three regular Meshwesh lists as listed; 144 pts total; points in ally commands can be different from 48 as long as all mins and maxes are met.

Great. On to planning Arsuf, the 2017 Society of Ancients Battle Day.

Will we have rules by our Kennett Square Triumphfest? (6/23 - 6/25)? We're hoping to have a chance to play test it thoroughly.

Triumphfest is open to anybody who wants to attend!

Thanks!

We've just resolved the last Major Thorny Issue. Rough draft of the rules available very soon. The terrain cards won't be ready for a little longer; those take some significant skull sweat and we couldn't proceed with them until resolved the Thorny Issues.
