Re: Lardy Rules Options for Crusades Skirmsh?

We used Dux for the Viking incursions and it worked great, but that required very little adaptation.

Re: Deployment vs ambush

An easy change that might go a long way towards mitigating the issue you're seeing is to treat Ambush or Deployment Points as Rallying Points for the purposes of Force Morale - meaning that if the Romans can remove one from the table, the Barbarian forces take a Force Morale test. That would encoura...

Re: Skirmishers query

Because in this era skirmishers were mostly young lads hucking sticks at the opposing side. They are more of an annoyance than any kind of serious threat.

FWIW, skimisher units should be your go-to for things like herding cattle or arson. They are much better suited to those roles.

Re: Handling Turns different

Time sensitivity works better across multiple scenarios in a campaign than it does within a single scenario. Although that said, I think that the Blitzkrieg scenario in the 1940 handbook does a decent job of reflecting a time pressure.
