I'm around on 16th, 23rd or 30th for those catch ups. Let me know if you can do one of them.
Andy

Hi Andy,

I'll be available on all of those nights, unless there's a clash with the Pikeman's Lament campaign.

Quote from: colinabrett on September 06, 2019, 09:45:43 amHi Carl,

I'll be at the club around 6:45 to open up and begin set-up. I think we need four tables, but can you confirm this in case I've missed a previous post?

Colin

Colin,

We just need three tables (4x4 as usual).
Many thanks.

Quick rules query; for the 'I will crush you' challenge, how do you handle things if they have multiple units with the same value?

This is especially important when you realise that the default unit sizes (1 hero, 4 hearthguard, 8 warriors or 12 levy) are all worth 5 points. So it's quite possible that EVERY unit in the enemy army will be worth the same.

Either the 23rd or 30th should be fine for me.

As it's Saga I'd say the stories to tell after the battle would be better if the most impressive unit was crushed (warlord, hearthguard, then warriors and finally levy), "we slaughtered his personal guard" or " We chopped down some peasants". If it's still a tie then write down which unit displeases you the most (easiest to kill) after deployment.

Can't find any rules to give a hierarchy, so will need Carl's decision?

However, remember you can increase the chance of a win by stopping the other side from completing their challenges (4 strong hearthguard unit will just be an easy target)

The massacre points are calculated once the units have been deployed, remember although warbands are recruited as points (4 hearthguard, 8 warriors, 12 levy) they can be deployed as any size within the limits. 

But if there are multiple units of the same value after deployment, then you must declare the target of your challenge, the should be done before the first turn starts.

Since challenges are declared before deployment, it is only after deployment that you can identify the target unit.

Also remember, your opponent can combine units as they are deployed, so as a reaction to any challenges. With a view to achieving their challenges and preventing yours!

Quote from: Carl Fisher on September 05, 2019, 09:11:49 amGame 5 - will use the scenario A Tale of Challenges from the Book of Battles.

For those who do not have the book see attached.

When scoring at the end of the game I will also need to know Massacre points - so when scoring, decide W/D/L based on the scenario (so on Challenge points) but record the Points as Massacre Points!

Please record the challenges on the back of the score sheet, as they are declared, and mark when they are achieved.

We're offset by a week because of the redecorating, so Mordheim is on the 16th and Pikeman's Lament is the 23rd.

Just to avoid confusion, we'll need 6 boards (3 per table) and two deep cut mats. Is that right? (I mucked up with Martin Knowles' BA boards, so I thought I should check.)
