[DBA3.0] Solo battle: Later Carthaginians II/32a v Numidians II/40

July 10, 2017


In which Later Carthaginians (LCart) go searching for their first win, and get their ass handed to them by Numidians (Num). Set-up Home and away: LCart Ag4 rnd6=10, Num Ag1 rnd2=6. Num are defence. Terrain: results on the random terrain roll are tweaked to portray Num home ground, in that ‘hill’ becomes ‘difficult hill’ and […]

[DBA3.0] Solo battle: Later Carthaginians II/32a v Iberians II39a

July 8, 2017


Another in the Punic-themed battles with sides I’ve recently built. This was an intriguing game of shifting flanks. The axis dice really played its part giving changes in tactics I would never try in a normal solo. This wargame includes some tweaks to the random terrain rules that the previous game suggested. Brief reminder of […]

[DBA 3.0] Solo battle: II32a Later Carthaginians v II33 Polybian Romans

July 5, 2017


Today (1 July 2017) just felt right for having a wargame, and since I’m not organised enough to head over to the Hutt Wargaming Club and join it, I decided to write some solo adaptations so I could run a DBA 3.0 game by myself. Overall an incredibly good balanced solo game resulted, where my […]

Solo-Micro for ANZAC Day

April 25, 2016


Having failed to get my gaming group excited enough about an extra day of gaming, I decided hey, it’s been over 2 years since my last wargame of any kind: let’s set up a solo wargame!   Now you’d think that with endless Punic-Period armies a-building, I’d run an ancients game, right? Well you would […]

English (IV/23) v Scots (IV/16): A trial for vid recording

February 5, 2014


It’s been a heck of a long time since my last wargame, but my usual opponent Angry Anderson found himself family-free and after a TTG version of an RPG session, we went one game on a standard dimension table. The only difference between our set-up and the rules was that I laid down the terrain […]

Assyrians v Bedouin (2)

May 2, 2011


In the reverse match of game one, Assyrians got to defend their own arable ground. At last, a chance for the mighty HCh to sweep the impudent raiders away! Or not, as it turned out. The Assyrian position was a road smack down the middle, a steep hill on the right half-way to the enemy, […]

Assyrians v Bedouin (1)

May 1, 2011


After the long-sufferng Early Hebrews were rubbed out by my Early Bedouin (c) in the previous two games, I really wanted to try them against tougher opposition. What better than the Neo-Assyrian Later Sargonids? Here’s a summary of the first battle: My Bedouin defending, I stuck with the exact same board as last time. My […]
