Re: Scots Common Army

Thanks Norm. Snag is that most of the banners are out of context outwith Flodden. Still, only a heraldry guru would notice, right? :D

Re: Tabletop terrain

I should of course have mentioned that DBA and Hordes of the Things (HOTT), among others, have systems for the selection and placing of terrain.

Re: Flodden 1513

The main problem was the rules used; the combat factor for archers was twice what H and H allows, combine that with pretty even dice scores for each side and you end up with that result. I'm new to H and H but like what I read, yet to run a game using it, only waiting for my D12s! Thinking of adapti...

Re: Flodden 1513

I've replied on the blog but anyway. Hordes and Heroes Medieval has an elegant skirmishing mechanism which doesn't allow archers to indulge in h-to-h combat. I'm going to adopt this as an optional ability for all my archers. One way round the Agincourt problem is to allow h-to-h combat but only as s...

Re: Tabletop terrain

Create a table using playing card values which represent a type of terrain. Theoretically divide the surface into 4 or 6 sections and deal a card into each. For a road or river, each starts in the section where the card fell and runs to the opposite side.

Re: Translate Artillery Shooting Factors

Ah, now I get it. Unexplained abbreviations and acronyms will be the death of me! Why not just put 4+ to hit, 9+ to hit, etc.?

Many thanks for taking the trouble to reply, appreciated.

Cheers,

Translate Artillery Shooting Factors

Can't get my head round these and the rules are anything but clear to me, e.g.:

1-3 Hex OK that's the range;
but what does 4+(H) 9+(H) mean?

However at 4 Hex range;
6+(H) 12+ (2H) sems to indicate the guns are more effective at longer range?

At a loss with this, any kind person care to explain it?
