Battle MasterssurpriseIt just dawned on me that one could probatly very easily convert MB's "Battle Masters" (Claymore Saga) into a variant of C&C: Ancients / Battlelore. Has anyone tried that already ?

We know the Battlelore map is the same as C&C: Ancients, ie 13 hexes wide by 9 deep. The Battlemasters map is 12 x 12 deep. Problem there. You'd probably have to ignore the terrain on the BM map (or you're stuck with the one configuration).

Also, you'd have to be able to remove the figures from the shared bases when you get casualties, so if you've stuck them on you have a problem. Cavalry matches - three to a stand, but infantry doesn't (five to a stand instead of BL's four).

It's rapidly starting to look like a hassle that isn't quite worth it ...

However, someone out there sells terrain hexes, so one could buy minis, paint them, get the terrain hexes, and make a cool variant for about $400. Heroscape tiles would probably work as well.

Lost Battalion sells 132 double sided hexes for $40. They come in two color schemes, European (normal) and desert sand. They are at www.lostbattalion.com.

I'm not suggesting to substitute Battlelore with Battlemasters, I was thinking more in the line of making a better game out of the old MB game.
Come what may, I'm hellbend on buying Battlelore anyway. I don't think however, that converting Battlemasters would be too much of a hassle.

That might be a really cool idea. You should post this in the BattleMasters forum.

Of course I have no idea how I would do this. I happen to think BattleMasters is an EXCELLENT game as it is
