[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

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 […]

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 […]

I think I’ll let picture do most of the talking… I got them on bases yesterday afternoon, and this evening got the boggy-green flock and two shades of grass on. Just the banner, or standard, to add tomorrow!

Medieval Irish mounted ready to mount

Meaning, the mounted (LH, Cav) are now all painted and ready to base. In between posts the DBA3.0 rules arrive from the UK. I really like them, though the roughly ‘legal’ size book does not shelve easily. Each army list has a short explanation, which sheds a great deal of light for those that don’t […]

Finished BUA pieces

The hamlet and village sections are complete now. I used carpentry quality PVA (white glue) from Gorilla to stick coloured flock around buildings to disguise gaps. In the event, I decided the existing orchard trees I have look too big against the farmhouse, so left the garden painted only. It’s a large enough open area […]
