Would like to try out a PbF session, if anybody is willing to participate let me know. The whole battle will take a couple of days though, as I can only post twice a day.

Re: PbF - Looking for worthy opponent against my Celts...
well, so far one is all I need

Never done PbF, but the battle report in the other thread gives a good idea how it goes (except for the speed, of course, we will not play it in one day).

Let's play 80 points. I will go with Celts, what will your army be?

Re: PbF - Looking for worthy opponent against my Celts...
so who's first? i am?

on the other hand, if you want we can skip the one by one step and deploy at once all our armies because i dont believe that it is so crucial. thing is how we gonna do this...what do you think?

Re: PbF - Looking for worthy opponent against my Celts...
Ok, I rolled a second die, you got a 6 (see post above), so you go first.

As for the deployment: WOW, an heretic! You don't want to take turns to deploy the troops? Shame on you...

Ok, if we set up all at once, will the Attacker (you) then state where the unit stacks are located, in the format "faceup tile + number of facedown tiles" (like "Legionaire 33, +2" meaning that it is an unit of 3 troops, with one being a Legionaire showing two black dice with a result of 3 each), or do you want to display the complete unit at once?

The defender (me) will then follow...

Or do you have a better idea?

Re: PbF - Looking for worthy opponent against my Celts...
There they are... the Queen looks across the plains where the forces of the intruders are deploying. "We bring you civilisation, your life will be better", crap like that they spread. The queen knows why they are here - they are after the tribes precious metals, the gold and the silver. The Queen raises her voice, to let it carry along the battleline of her horde, "Our metal they want, our metal they will get - the steel of our swords buried in their bellies"


FRONT LEFT (opposite your right side)
3 tiles showing Slingers 34
1 tile warband 44
1 tile warband 66

FRONT CENTER
3 tiles warband 55

FRONT RIGHT (opposite your left)
4 tiles Javelinmen 44
2 tiles Horsemen 44
3 tiles warband 33

Now your rear troops, Roman

Re: PbF - Looking for worthy opponent against my Celts...
the free movement is part of your turn, it's phase 1. phase 2 then show your action (including attack, shooting, more movement). Until you completed your turn (1 optional free move and 1 mandatory action) I can't do anything except react to your charge (should there be one).




So here's the final deployment:

Re: PbF - Looking for worthy opponent against my Celts...
good that nothing happened, since you are not allowed to use double order on the very first turn as attacker (attacker - the player that won the die roll for going first - may never use any special trait - those that you need to use orders to activate - on his very first turn)

We let it be for that game (don't want to have the very first move redone )

looks like you are learning one or two things here

Ok, lucky me, nothing happens.

Let's see, my turn.

Free redeployment, Warband 44 from LF to CF

Order: CF unit Noble Cavalry 3,6 6, Noblemen 344, Warband 55 on charge order. I also place an order token on the druid to use excite on that charge.

Do you want to intercept?

Re: PbF - Looking for worthy opponent against my Celts...
ok, just seen the druid trait... i m glad that you used it

ok so i distribute 2 hits on the CAVARLY 3 6 and 1 hit to each CAVARLY 5 6 CATAPHRACTS 4 5 5 and this grants you 4 v.p. and i m left 4/9 orders

these 2 units fight to avenge their fallen comrade...
2 1 dice that hits on 4,5,6 (i prefer 5 of course!)

Fight! fight you bastards! kill them all! 1d6 = (2) = 2
