Re: Playtesters needed

OK - that’s enough for now!

Huge thanks to the folks who replied: playtest packs will be out today.

Playtesters needed

(Boy, sure wish we’d got this far before lockdown!) Ok. Looking for play testers for the new Raid and Battle scenarios in the Dux Britanniarum Compendium. If you are reasonably experienced with Dux, and have the time and patience to run through a few scenarios, solo or (in some suitably socially dis...

Re: A question of armour

It's an abstraction of both. A combination of being good enough to avoid/parry what would otherwise be a hit, and having good enough armour to soak some of the ones you can't dodge.

Re: The Compendium - rules clarifications - request for comment.

The actual rules say “ Nobles may rally Shock from Groups under their command, however Harassing Troops and Light Cavalry can never be rallied” I think we have taken the view that “Nobles” applies to the whole sentence. But open to debate. Also the wording on page 30 does not restrict the Rally car...

Re: Reading suggestions?

Read it, but once you’ve read it read the Guy Halsall book. He demolishes Morris’ arguments rather impressively (and with better citations and evidence than Morris has for his own work)
