Re: Footsore Irish

Absolutely!
The Fianna are probably meant for a slightly later period (post 800 AD) but the warriors, Heroes and command are perfect for Raiders

AAR 3 Short and Bloody

Habitancum April 427 No rest for Quintus Lucius Blaesus! Once again Pictish raiders have landed on the East coast and are rushing inland. They make good time and almost before anyone knows they have surrounded a small Mithraic temple. Whilst ostentiably a Roman Catholic province the old faiths still...

AAR 2 - Pictish Surprise

Gododdin March 427 After supporting Lucius Quintus a few days earlier, Dectotctric and his Pictish raiders decide to bring home a few mementoes from their excursion to the South.

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...
