I plan on attending [driving down from KC].  Will combine with a visit to my sister in Marble Falls.  I assume it will be 10,000 pts.  I have not played a full game yet, so apologies in advance for my 'greenness'.

Player Discussion / Playing through first games

Forgive some probably basic questions, but my buddy and I are playing through the learning sequence, and I might from time to time pop in here to ask what will probably be basic questions [but to us newbies....they are head scratchers].  First up, when a Devastating Charger unit is themselves charged by a non DC unit, do they claim the DC +2 benefit [against enemy foot], if they stand and receive?  Or, do they have to declare a counter charge in order to get the bonus +2?  Does a skull result cause a shatter in melee or just in the charge phase.  We looked for both these in the rules and on the QRS, but probably overlooked it .  Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the nice comments.  I painted these up with several bases [blue shields] 3 to a base, so I could put them in the front rank if loose, and several bases of 4 to a base to show close formation.  Same thing with the red shield legionaries.  Also, did that with my Early Germans [several bases of 3 figures and many more bases of 4 figures, so I could alternate formation]

Thanks!  I tried doing this with a NMM look, but was not happy with the end result.  Since then, I have gone back to a more traditional true metallic.

15mm Corvus Belli figures.  Proably close to 10K points now.  Elephants and bolt shooters also.

Player Discussion / Re: Pacto

Thanks Simon.  Yes, I would love to try it.  Something to get a few others in my area to develop some synergy to move in the larger games.  Also, I purchased the rules last year, and I know you made changes for 2019.  Is there updates for the 3 ring binder to purchase?  Do you have a central spot to download changes and replace pages in the binder?

Thanks for a great set of rules.  Really looking forward to getting a group going here in mid America. 

Also.......big thanks to Stephen for letting me watch his Historicon games.  He did a great job of explaining the mechanics and thoughts behind what he was doing.

My email address is 5100dave@gmail.com

Player Discussion / Pacto
« on: August 04, 2019, 02:52:09 AM »
So sorry for this, I am sure basic question, but I have seen some reference to Pacto MeG, and was wondering what that was and how it differed.  Seems like a smaller version which I thought would be a good way to learn the mechanics as well as bring others into the system.  I have Early German, Marian Roman, Timurid, Mongol, Lombard 15mm armies that were used in ADLG before, so not the number of bases needed for the full game.  Is there a place I can find more info about this.  Thanks in advance.

My sister and niece live in the Austin /Marble Falls area, so I might try to convince, she who must be obeyed, to take a trip south in November.  Never played a game of MeG. but would love to learn by playing.

I am in KC.........and not really that close either.  If you are ever in this area, let me know.  I have some nice matched pairs armies that would work, and all the accouterments.

Thanks to Dave, Dale, Stephen and Phil for allowing me to sit in and observe the games on Saturday games.  I played in 2 ADLG tourneys on Thursday and Friday, but wanted to see MeG played.  Stephen was particularly gracious with his explanations and insights.  I was excited to see how it played.  Hard to learn on your own, even though it seems somewhat intuitive.  Our local gaming group KC metro area] is really splintered into DBA, SAGA, Star Wars, and other non-historical gaming.  We had a large group of Warrior [WRG 7th plus] players, but, they went into Flames of War, and other things.  Alas, not much ancient gaming, and those that are tend to want to play shorter and simpler games [DBA, SAGA].  Hopefully, I can entice 1 or 2 guys to start the learning curve together and maybe that will attract others.
