William de Warenne was given about 20 manors in Norfolk by Duke William so can I be based in East Anglia on the map please.

NB I won't be playing but for scenario planning be aware that I own a bunch of sub-Roman buildings, most of a Saxon village and will have 3D print files for a ;large abbey. Also the club owns the BIG GB/4Ground Saxon Hall.

A week's notice for any of the above would be nice though.

First round will be April 1st! Apt!

What will need is names and warbands by Friday March 22nd.

There will be six games, scenarios will be published two weeks before.

Warband details will need to include a named Warlord (if you forget this I will provide Faction linked humorous names), Faction, and 8 points of units.

Games will be played with 6pts.

So for example

Player: Fred Smith
Warlord: Ulfric Squint-Eye
Faction: Viking
Points: 3pts Hearthguard, 1pt Berserkers, 2pts Warriors, 2pts Levy.

More details to follow!




Just a reminder, I need your lists by this coming Friday to allow me to sort out round One due 01/04/2019.

My list:

Player: Carl Fisher
Warlord: Styrbjörn the Strong
Faction: Jomsviking
Points: 4pts Hearthguard, 4pts Warriors

I note we currently have an odd number of players (including me).

So I will fill in to ensure games are played on the campaign night, so no one goes without a game.
Games Played (Armies): WAB + WaC (IER Roman, Early Saxons and variants, Normans), WFB (Empire), 40K (Spacemarines), Uncharted Seas (Empire, Shroud Mages), WAB English Civil War (English!), Operation Squad (British) SAGA (Normans, Jomsvikings), Mordheim, Wings of War/Glory WWI, Dreadball, Chain of Command (British), Frostgrave, Sails of Glory and many others!!

Hi Carl,

I'm playing Anglo-Saxons. How far north can I be based, please? Obviously, I'd like to be based in Bernicia or Northumbria, if they settled that far. Failing that, around Oxford would be great!

Thanks,
Colin

PS: that's a really nice map in your PDF. How did you make it? Because I might have to steal it  ;D

PPS: Is the Book of Battles required for each player?

The map has now been divided up for the start of the campaign.

Each player has three territories to defend as follows:

Andy Beer - Welsh : Gwynedd; Powys; Deheubarth
Andy Mellor - Strathclyde Welsh : Strathclyde; Galloway; Argyll
Andy Miller - Anglo-Danes : Northumbria; Westmorland; Cumbria
Carl Fisher - Jomsvikings : None!
Colin Brett - Anglo-saxons : Wessex; Devon; Leicester
Grahame Middleton - Normans : Essex ; Kent; Sussex
Rob Farley - Normans : Normandy; Avranchin; Brittany
Shawn Comer - Vikings : Egdafylki; Rygjafylki; Hordafylki
Tom G - Irish : Meath; Oriel; Leinster


This should leave plenty of Territories to raid and even conquer.

First matches are as follows:

Grahame vs Andy Miller
Rob vs Collin
Andy B vs Tom
Shawn vs Andy Mellor

If anyone can't play on Monday then the Jomsvikings will replace them.

Carl a question about talents.
The first step in Hunting "your warlord is now equipped with a bow" could I have an amendment to this? As it stands at the moment, my mounted warlord with javelin would become dismounted with a bow? Not an improvement.
Could this either be a composite bow or bow? Or "your warlord maybe equipped with a bow"?

Sorry no. This trait really only applies to an unmounted warlord. To allow composite would be far too powerful.

Also composite bow does not sit well with Conquest era.

Note also if your warlord does not have the option to be on foot, then this trait cannot be used.

Obviously if your warlord can choose mtd or foot, then when you set up you can deploy as either on foot (with bow and trait) or mtd  (ignoring the trait).
