Re: Battle of Fox's Gap 1862

Great report. Another great scenario. Do you playtest any first to check for balance, or just launch into the fray?
Best wishes

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

Thanks for the comments, Norm. Bright lighting is key to show different heights (Not that I'm an expert though, but I do have to, in the words of Peter Kay, put the "big" light on). I also use the different flock effects on the hexes for differentiating height, too. I use the plain flock for hilltop...

Re: Medieval Korean v Samurai

Another great report. Many thanks for a good read. I always like the number of players on each side. Do ypu allocate units to each player, and how much advice can you give to each other during play?
Best wishes

Re: A 6x6 grid game, WWII East Front

Great report again! I love the terrain you use- obviously alot of time and effort plainly goes into it. The games you create on the smaller grids are superb, well done!

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

Turn 6 witnessed the last stand of the elves, The orcs attacked with all units available. The last desperate volleys of arrows drove both units of giants back, but it was to no avail. The last few stands of elves needed to break their army fell, and the survivors fled. DSCF7563.JPG DSCF7570.JPG DSCF...

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

Turn 5 opened with mountain orcs and giants hurling themselves at the elven line. The elf archers fired, but I think were distracted as they searched the skies for aerial support, and only succeeded in driving back one unit. The combat round saw the elf line collapse with the loss of their giants, a...

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

The fighting on the hill was raging. The elves fighting the chariots had mixed success, with losses on both sides. DSCF7543.JPG Mark committed a unit of archers into the woodland to draw the attack of the mountain orcs fighting the treemen. DSCF7539.JPG This forlorn hope was swiftly crushed and the ...

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

DSCF7536.JPG The fighting on the orc left flank intensified, the heavy chariots charged in, resisted the missile volley, succeeded in driving back a unit of archers, and locked an elf general in melee. DSCF7534.JPG To counter the treemen, the only unit able to attack was a force of mountain orcs wi...

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

DSCF7516.JPG As the orcs reeled on the hill, Mark seized the opportunity and sent in the treemen! They pummelled the remaining orcs in the wood, forcing them back- unfortunately the only avenue for retreat was to push back and disrupt the mountain orcs behind (along with their general). The treemen...
