Re: Getting Started

Yes, they’d be fine on those size bases.

Re: La Hermandad Army Lists

Sorry, that wasn’t very clear. I think that the ‘+95th’ makes it more confusing. The 95th at the start of the game is till a formed unit of infantry. Per the rules it should have at least three organic skirmishing bases (one for each battalion plus one for LI), I’m not sure where the fourth comes fr...

Perhaps that translates to say 15 individual units

Re: Sweet spot for a game

Hi Z, Ive never worried about points, but there is an ideal span of control. I’d say that a player can manage say four-five brigades before it starts getting too big. This obviously depends on the table size and time available, but if I think about the typical full afternoon or evening games that we...

Re: GDA2

Let’s say you have a larger skirmish screen with say 6 bases. Currently that means 4 D6, hitting on a 5 or 6. Amending it as per my suggestion means it would be 6 x D6 hitting on a 6 only. That reduces the effectiveness in my view.

Re: GDA2

Hi N, I think you’d find that this makes them less effective. There may be a slight increase in the number of dice if you go with a D6 per base, but the chances of hit reduce significantly if they only hit on a 6, rather than a 5 or 6. My view is that they are overly effective and this change makes ...

Re: GDA2

I agree on the skirmishers Phil. As I said in an earlier post I would have 1x D6 per base, but make them hit on a 6 only.

Re: GDA2

Dave, we've played plenty of games here and they remain the only set we use. We have tinkered with them, including a card based activation process which works well, and a few little tweaks. I do think that the items you suggested under b) makes sense. My thoughts: - I think skirmishers are a little ...
