Re: Bishmeister's Darkholds: Byzantii Catacombs 3d game board

Just simply stunning.
Wish id been able to get to Salute to see it in person, but all you previous work that I've seen, regardless of reason, is stunning. And I loved being able to follow its creation on Twitter.

Re: Erainn Starter Host

Its a tricky one, do you make Starter host's legal forces, or do you just put cool models in so that people can get playing with what they've got. GW Starter boxes, for example, have often mixed the armies up to allow the different aspects of the rules to be played. 'Starter Box' doesn't have to mea...

Quick Starter Rules

Hi,
Just downloaded and had a look at the Quick Starter rules and they look a good 'start'!

One question - there is no mention of fated dice for shooting attacks, only combat ones. Is this an oversight?

Re: Counter Engage

I've been looking in the rules Rob. Bulk Charge (2.4.5.2.6) allow models to make impact strikes against smaller based models if they are Swift Charging (no mention of distance) Combat Modifiers give bonuses and negatives to models who are Swift Charging (6.12.3.1) There are some other instances wher...

Re: Counter Engage

Cheers Rob, So for the bulk charge for counter engage, is it based on the distance separating at the point of engage move? Eg. Guthwulf charges Tarvax unit 16" away. Guthwulf stops 10" away as that's half his swift engage (or does he stop 8" as that's half the swift engage move in thi...

Counter Engage

Rob, When you counter engage (7.11) you move the charger up to half their engage move or swift engage move, then move the charged unit. Does this allow BOTH units to have bulk charge? In theory the charging unit never moves over their pace which is needed to be a swift engager (as only move half), b...

Re: Wolves, wolves and more wolves

I like the Werwulfs, but think that cost and unit size is an issue. Even with free command the 8 man/wulf minimum makes it a very expensive unit. Think I'd be tempted to not bother with shields and run them cheap. They are one of the few +d10 weapon units in the army, so they do give out that little...

Re: Anglecynn vs Ysians (999 Gold)

Yes to the original question about C+A. Use that of an unwounded model if the unit has some - otherwise you could be damaging based on a C+A 1 higher than the armour, which might see you mowing down huge swathes of the unit!! Yeah, the Thegn is a noble and then superstar to the unit. if the wiglere ...

Think I need to put some models on the table and reason it through with a rule book as in my head it still sounds like it could be abused to give extra movement.

Re: Muster - Missing/Wrong Elements

Maybe it's worth clarifying that though Rob?
You know it means that, and it makes logical sense for it to mean that, but a line to explain it, or even just replace 'contubernia' with 'unit' makes it easier/clearer for players?

Re: Thoughts on anglecynn formations

Look at the reaction rules when it comes to dealing with fliers. All their engagements are indirect, so (from memory) non wild stuff can perform a withdraw reaction.

Starting an Anglecynn muster as I love the infantry. Have you tried spears in units bigger than 10? Wondering if you can get even more atacks in. Unlike Rob, I'm not as convinced that the extra attacks is better than the +d10!

I agree it's not totally clear, but if you follow the wording for the other characters that adjust units, I would say that if you have both, then the first from each should be in his command.
