That's right, no Sassanids. Why? They can't field 8 elephants.

Boo effing hoo. Rolling Eyes

I might be reading the list wrong, but sassanids can have their CinC be an elephant, kushan ally-genral can be an elephant, and they can get 6 mor3 elephants. Wouldn't this allow for them to be used?

Divine Wind would run into a SHC problem...as such would be the awesome troops.

Couldn’t that be somewhat mitigated by theme rules? Are there many lists with that many SHC available to shift the balance of power?

Sure...armies perceived to be advantaged we usually have at 0% bonus, those at a disadvantage get a +%...but Japanese are awesome against not-SHC..so this is tricky.

PostPosted: Thu Jul 19, 2018 12:47 pm    Post subject: Frozen lake terrain contest

Scott elsewhere suggested that for the Teutonic themed tournament he was going to introduce a frozen lake terrain type. I was intrigued by this, as having a terrain specialized to appear in only one climate type sounds interesting. But, then I actually had a decent idea. As part of the theme, we could have a terrain piece competition for the frozen lake as part of the theme that day similar to the camp competition. Scott would need to fix the size of the frozen lake terrain and what features it should have, but that should be straight forward. Notionally as an example, the terrain requirements could laid out like this:

1. Size - the frozen lake must be at least 240 paces across the minor diameter and no more than 600 paces across the major diameter. The overall shape is intended to be roughly elliptical.
2. There should be a 60 pace wide shore and safe ice perimeter around frozen lake feature.
3. The interior of the perimeter is treacherous ice subject to collapse if crossed by routers, etc.

Living in Florida, someone with more experience would need to help with should be the perimeter be clear or difficult terrain, would the interior of the frozen lake be clear or difficult, etc.

Thanks,

Jamie

I'd say the interior of a frozen lake would be rough (like a brush, but without the ability for any troops to 'hide')...I've walked and even run on frozen lakes, not easy...but not like a Bog/Marsh or Woods with uneven ground.

As for the shore/perimeter...that really varies. They can be open or rough or very rough, depending on the shoreline prior to snow/freezing/ice and the amount of snowfall and nature of the ice interaction with the shore...so, really up to the tournament organizer.
