Re: solo hastings game

Now set the turn duration to ensure that you have to attack rather than just sit there shooting the line waiting for something to happen 8 to 12 turns dependant upon your experience. (Norman turn, saxon turn, turn adjustment)

Will try to post something of a write up of the game played.

Re: Hordes&Heroes Medieval solo?

Hi, Ran a solo battle of Hastings in 6mm with Kallistra hex system at the club the other night for a new player using all basic rules, seemed to work well with very few decisions having to be made for the "opposition" forces. think Paul is going to put up some info later.
