First AAR of our new Dux Campaign Thundering Hooves

Habitancum March 427 AD. The men at work in a small silver mine East of Habitancum suddenly hear harsh shouts over the normal din of the mining operation. There are Saxon looters on the prowl! The Saxons have managed to get quite close already and have made it to the low foothills near the mine entr...

Re: Combat: Flank Attacks etc etc

John, George, Really sorry to bring this up again but I still have some doubts about the whole rear/flank attack. While the diagrams are indeed very helpfull the interpretations somewhat clash with the written text on pages 48 and 49. As I read it. To be able to make a succesful flank or rear attack...

Re: Hopefully Simple Dux questions

Remember that routing troops (ie those that lost their amphora) aren't out of the woods yet. They still have to withdraw off the table- preferably from a friendly edge: If they don't they are subsceptible to the stragglers rule. Even when in full flight off the table they can still be killed or capt...

Re: Combat: Flank Attacks etc etc

I agree no flank attacks in the first 2 instances. In fact there are no 'flank attacks ' per se in DuxB, I believe it's only 'Rear Attacks' and even then you need to play a Carpe Diem card to get the advantages. So that attacking group must have a Noble in its ranks. An uncommanded group can't do fl...

Re: Nobles and Shuffling

Just a thought. In our previous campaign one of the - Saxon- players had amassed an army of well over 100 figures. Since that became quickly unmanageable we made a house rule that as soon as you got 24 re-inforcements (warriors- elite or levy) you also got an extra Noble.

Re: Gŵr y Gogledd cavalry options

Mixed results with my Gŵr y Gogledd ( how do you pronounce that in fact?) Sofar I've always opted to have the Lord and Champion in the cavalry units, but I might try promoting my Noble I (he's a Master of Arms) and so stiffen up the infantry a bit. As Derek says it depends a lot on luck, the right s...

Re: Question re Group Integrity and Victory Points for Raids

Hi John, My bad. I obviously didn't explain myself well enough. In the case you presented we'd move all the figures together on two movement trays but they are clearly still three separate groups for targetting and such.In our case it's mostly the shields on the respective figures that differentiate...

Re: Question re Group Integrity and Victory Points for Raids

Hi John,

We move'em together so decreasing their footprint since that also makes them easier to outflank.

Hope this is correct but we did gave the Romano British 2 points for keeping the Saxons from obtaining their objectives.

Re: Attacking Fortifications

Thanks Willie, you must have some fun at your club with Dux. Just concluded an 80 weeks campaign and starting another one in November with 22 players. Poor me :roll: Dux and CoC are without a doubt the two most popular games at our club ever. The only thing that 'bothers' me a bit is that I have ma...

Re: Attacking Fortifications

Hi George, We've played out some 'siege' scenarios a few times, using a 're-fortified' hill fort as the target. Footprint is about 45 x 45 cm and the outer walls are stone built up with timber fences. Lacking siege equipment of any kind the only way of gaining access to the fort(let) is either break...
