Re: Caerfen

With the removal of the immediate threat of Mark's cavalry, I opted to extend and push my left flank out from the woods and forward again. This proved too much of a temptation for two of Mark's trailing horse archer units and they turned with speed only the elves possess and arrived once more on my ...

Re: Caerfen

The elves swept forward with cold determination to drive the savage hordes back from Caerfen. The cavalry and eagles moved up on the right flank- the missile cavalry forming a screen to the front. On the left, the infantry marched swiftly in columns to take the old ruins on the ridge above the villa...

Re: Caerfen

Hi Dane,
Thanks for the comments. The roads I use are nice and flexible to suit the hexon contours and have a fuzzy anti- slip backing. I use 1.5 inch width. I bought them years ago for my Warmaster games and have lasted really well,
Best wishes

The Battle of Caerfen- Orcs v Elves

THE BATTLE OF CAERFEN. This encounter between the ravening orcs and stalwart elves took place on, what can only be described as, a "busy" battlefield. The village of Caerfen, named after a long gone Elven fort, sits on a busy trade thoroughfare, a well- travelled route for wealthy merchants. It was ...

Re: Siege questions

Thanks for the reply. The siege games have been going well. One further area we've had debates over, and played a couple of variations on, is fighting through breaches and gateways. We've experimented with calling them linear obstacles once breached to allow the defenders the advantage of not having...

Re: Siege questions

Thanks for the reply. The game went well but still working through rules, etc. before doing the battle report. Quick clarification needed on Gunpowder weapons and artillery. Gunpowder ignores A1 or A2 armour, as do field artillery pieces. Does this also hold true for A2 protection provided by wooden...

Siege questions

Hi all, Had a great first go at a siege battle the other night. Great fun and presented lots of new elements to consider during the game. A couple of issues arose which we played through on the night but thought we could ask to see how others interpret them: 1. When scaling ladders are placed, and a...

Evade question and rules update enquiry

Hi all, Not posted for a while but still playing! Quick rules question: Can an evading unit move back into a hex occupied by a friendly unit, and if so what effect does it have in regards to disruption/ making way, etc. Many thanks. Are there any updates regarding the anticipated rules updates for H...
