Picts v Saxons or Irish?

All, I succumbed to the W&E KS, and want to get started using DB, but the Romano Brits wont be ready till December. We can get the early Saxons /Pict/Irish now though, and I wondered if you can reasonably play Saxons v either of the Picts or Irish using DB?

Re: The Dux Britanniarum Compendium

Mike, one thing that might be worthwhile adding to the compendium is an index to all the DB articles in the various Specials.

Re: Last forum standing

I think smaller forums and figure manufacturer based forums will struggle against the ease of FB. There is still a place for places like this where a large range of rules and periods are discussed. I wouldnt want to be starting a new forum though, for just a single set of rules. FB is better for that.

Re: 1813 Prussians

I would have thought that a few of the line regiments would have qualified as veteran, especially those that served in Russia. They mightn’t have done a lot of fighting there, but they did a lot of marching that would have sorted out the wheat from the chaff.

Re: Review of General d'Armee

I would agree Duke, that’s about the number we use and I would agree about the time. That suits me fine - there are plenty of other games designed to allow people toplay quick games in an hour.

Re: Review of General d'Armee

As a long time GdeB player, I regarded GdeA as an improvement to those rules. I think that the title is slightly misleading. It would be better titled GdeDivision as there is still a level of granularity that shouldn’t be there for an army level game.

Re: Brigade sizes

why does every set of rules 'need' army lists?

In reality infantry brigades should be a minimum three battalions, cavalry two regiments. just make these a minimum and it should stop people gaming the system.

Re: Brigade sizes

to be honest, we have one player do the scenario with both players picking a side at random, so there is no point setting up unrealistic OBs
