My music project has kept me away from painting soldiers - I just hadn't realised for how long. Coming to the end of it so back to the figures soon - I hope!
Last Monday's fight was Marian Roman v Tamil Indian. I managed to break one enemy command and my co-consul another. It wasn't half the army though - so a 7:3 victory only.
A real 'Ancients' night - next to us was an Armati battle between Persians and a 'Triple Alliance' army (what!). A victory for massed bow fire.
Also being tried out was Impetus in 10mm featuring a Japanese (Samurai) civil war. Looked like more time was being spent on the rules than playing the game - inevitable I suppose.
At home I solo-ed a 'Conflict at World's End' game between Tupi and Mixtecs. Even though I had deliberately avoided horses and guns the game was still slow. It got to the stage where the Tupi had no more reserves while the Mixtecs had a third line. I called it a day.
The 'uncontrolled' moves were ok to start with but caused problems when space was tight:
(a) falling of the edge of the world - what happens when troops meet the table edge?
(b) blocked by other (friendly) troops - do they interpenetrate, bounce off or what?
Need to re-read the rules and try again.
With Mars bringing out two new 30 years' Wars Polish boxes perhaps I should get around to building yet another 1/72nd DBA-RRR army. According to PSR the standard box is a re-working of an earlier set but what the 'Paholki' are I cannot work out. Maybe I will contact the local Polish community in this area to see if they can throw any light on the subject!
