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

July 8, 2017

0

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 […]

April 22, 2017

Well you would […]

Medieval Irish IV/58 – the new elements

July 14, 2015

Suitable for both 2.2 and 3.0 ed, The third Bd element: Those chaps were picked out of the previous Ax elements. There are still plenty left – really the box has far too many heavies and far too few lights. Are you listening, RedBox?   But now by amalgamating the Ax minis those moves left, […]

Second thoughts about those Irish Bd and Ax

July 9, 2015

0

I hate to mess with my nice new army, but I’m going to re-jig the Ps and Ax elements. The Ps with shields are going to be joining the other heavier-equipped kerns in the Ax; and the heavily equipped Ax are going to make a third Bd element. I’m turning to a pack of HaT […]
