Re: Watcha

Hi Michael,
I've been doing some research into 'Empire' armies from GW, hence the delayed response. In my humble opinion I would say that the H&H Eastern European medieval range is probably the most suitable. These could be augmented with miniatures from the War of the Roses and 100 Years War ranges.

Imperial Romans v Celts

Tony has been developing the Hordes and Heroes army stats for the Imperial Romans, Celts and a range of other ancient armies. Before the latest increase in Covid infections and resulting lockdowns, contact restrictions etc., we put these into action in an epic battle in Dave’s wargame cabin. Dave ha...

Re: Few questions about our first (epic) games

Please find below the Shield Wall rules. Certain armies contain units which can form a shield wall, which reflect the way in which these particular troops fought historically. This means that units forming a line of adjacent hexes can be said to be giving support to each other. Unit types which can ...

Re: Few questions about our first (epic) games

Hi Julias, Ratty has already answered most of your questions - many thanks Ratty - things have been rather busy at Kallistra HQ recently! Q2 Artillery shooting at hard targets. This has been an area of discussion in our club games. We allow artillery shooting as normal(unlike small arms), when shoot...

Re: ACW/AWI Hex rules

Hi Tim, Play sheets for the ACW and AWI rules can be e-mailed to you on request. Dan has produced a Napoleonic adaptation of the rules which I'm sure he will OK us to send you a copy. As mentioned in the 'Battle chat' with Henry Hyde in December 2019. The intention was to release the Updated version...

Skype Game 2: WOTRs Yorkist v Tudor

For this second Skype game Sally teamed up with Alex in Canada to take on my War of the Roses Yorkist army with a Tudor army. The table size of 6ft x 4ft enabled quite sizeable armies of approx. 275 points to be pitted against each other with plenty of room to manoeuvre. We positioned the camera ang...

Sally’s High Elves v Paul’s Barbarian’s

With the wargames club still suspended due to the CV 19 ‘lockdown’ it would seem the right time for Sally to step forward bravely and play a Hordes and Heroes game. It’s been quite a while since she’s played so it was only fair that she should choose the opposing armies. Sally chose High Elves, a fa...

Re: Painting the 'Ming'

Thanks for the thumbs up! I researched some authentic Chinese symbols, but after painting the first few I decided that they didn't look right on the shields. I then started to just doodle various abstract patterns which would fit better onto the shield shapes. This use of 'artistic license' seemed t...
