QuoteInteresting game. 1512? Please could you tell me what units were involved? Despite the imprecations of an august member of the forum, I am somewhat innocent of the early C16. PS. Love the robo-cougar in the background.
QuoteThanks again for hosting and organising another entertaining adventure in 16th Century India, Steve (nice 15mm minis and palm trees, btw). My commiserations (at least West Ham won today ). Although my own half-baked plan worked out, to be fair, I think we were both bemused by the actual turn of events - and this time purely 'historical' without mythical beasts, zombies or magical powers. Kind of glad you didn't choose elephants for your Indian army - otherwise I'd be asking for special powers to counter them - e.g., box of mice or bag of buns. Incidentally, is that a second victory for Vasco Mourinho? p.s. Your 10mm figures for the period also look very tasty - no doubt, we can get these on the table in future when you can introduce me to the delights of Irregular Wars - Conflicts at the World's End?
QuoteYesI've checked the Irregular Wars army lists and am horrified to see how many more stands I require to fill out a typical Indian force.Above the "patrols and excursions" scale of Dragon Rampant, most forces incorporate an awful lot of levies.Porters, grooms, cooks, water carriers, but most expected to fill out the ranks in a typical battle between Indian states.They're typically rather dull to paint. I'll engage my impressionist brain and see whether I can devise a "painting by numbers" scheme to churn out lots quickly.
Quote1) What ruleset did you use in your last game? - Fistful of Lead2) What armies were confronted? - Soviets v Finns 3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Yes, very4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - Yes5) How many players were in the game? - 26) What went well? - Easy stress free rules7) What could have been improved? - We played a meeting engagement between two recon forces. Would have been better if there was an objective rather than just kill each other to win.
QuoteNot wanting to add to the bad news, they are a bit of a liability within the game - and can rather break and route off table if just one of them is destroyed!But they do feel a core part of the forces and I think working out how to use them - if not effectively but at least not as a liability is important. Painting wise, it feels like a variety of browns?
