Hastings Part III the Conclusion

Post by Rod » Fri Oct 09, 2020 11:55 am

Part is up, I hope everyone enjoyed the battle and got a chance to see how we can use Triumph to play out this historical battle.

One item that I know the Normans used at the battle is the "False Rout". Have you considered this for the battle, because it is not apparent in the replay.

The feigned flight or false rout is built into Triumph with troops like Skirmishers and Jav Cav which can retreat (evade) when doubled in combat. The result being that the winning unit charges forward leaving it potentially exposed to an enemy counter attack.

We had multiple incidents of this in the game.

This was really great to see. The board and miniatures are awsome. As a new player it was really useful to see how things get played. You did a good job zooming in on interesting parts and explaining them.

Watching this inspired me to try the Issus Grand Triumph scenario that I posted in the scenarios part of the board. It really helped seeing how the command break worked.
