Played the first game of the campaign today ( solo )

The kyrie almost wiped out all the dragon-newts, captured their magic item and took 4000 prisoners as slaves (-4 KV )

The Wolfen failed to bring the Broo to battle.

Current strengths are now;

Tudor 10 (the fog )
Hanover 14 ( brew of keen eye )
Bourbon 16 WAR attack Kastello second (jar of the four winds )
Kastello 11 (amulet of thorns )
Borgia 16 WAR....attack Kastello first (wings of the honeymaze)

Wolfen 18................ WAR = Broo evade engagement (ensorcelled armour) EDIT Beastmen renamed Broo ( fielded as human berserkers )
Broo 11 ( brew of sharpness )
Dragon-newt 6
Kyrie 11 .............. (medallion of life / wine of elvenkind ) 4 KV dragon-newt slaves

Two battles still to fight in Year 5

No problem Walts.....no designated players for each of the factions.

Just going with the personalities of the Kings and Queens for evaluating conflicts/politics.

The next battle will be a siege...Borgia 1600 points of men against Kastello defending with 1100 points of men.

Wow what a game on Sunday 8000 pts Orcs and Forces of Nature V 8000 pts Humans & Dwarves!

Orcs victorious with over 5000 pts still standing - smashing up the Dwarves and most of the centre of the Human line.
The Human Knights put up a big fight on the other flank but took too long to remove the pesky an determioned to stay to the bitter end - Orc Skulks!
The Humans only had just over 3000 points left at the end.

Will add the pictures to the Kings of War picture Gallery later.

Was this part of the Arkania campaign or just a "one off"?

It was just a one off as far as I believe.

Hugh and I wanted to see a large KoW battle.

I still think the Orcs are too tough - all getting CS(1) and Defence 5 makes them very tough to beat.

There are no Orcs in Arkania so it wont be a big problem. wink ( for the campaign anyway ) tongue

Update;
Advance Turn by 5 years /

Roll for deaths /
Roll for births /
Roll for children age 15 characteristics ( 2d20 per person ) /

Calculate Wars (KV +1d10) 24+ = Conflict

Fight all battles !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /
Amend KV totals ( -1 KV for each 200 army points destroyed. )

Roll for Increase of KVs / ( roll 1d12 for each KV) 12 = +1 (( if "Harsh Conditions" apply 1 = -1 KV ))

See for the FIGHT ALL BATTLES do remember the wealth of 15mm armies I now have at my disposal.

If you want I can bring in some - what types of armies are you looking at fighting with?
I have; Norman, Viking, Mongols, Assyrians, Greek, Orcs, Dark elves, Dwarves, various monsters / dragons etc (the fantasy ones could be used to represent a human group).
And there will be a Roman army for the club.
Alhough I must insit I get to fight with the Mongols first - as they have not been used yet!

It might be Borgia and Bourbon against Kastello ....3200 points of humans vs 1100 points of humans in a siege.

So 15mm might be okay. We don't have a 15mm castle though ?

Rethinking the rules of engagement......

Added (02-May-2016, 9:10 AM)
---------------------------------------------
Rules of Engagement

As the KV increases, each kingdom will roll to see if they are involved in conflict.
If the trigger point is reached then consult priorities of attack.

Non human priorities;

1) Any adjacent kingdom which also triggers conflict. Dice for timing if more than one.

2) Non human specific priority ( Wolfen vs Broo / Dragon-newt civil war / Kyrie random slave raid.

Human Priorities;

1) Any Non-human adjacent kingdom which triggers conflict.

2) Any non-human adjacent kingdom. (which has not been subdued )

3) Any adjacent Human kingdom which triggers conflict.

4) Smallest adjacent Human Kingdom.

---------------------------------------------
This means in year 5

Wolfen KV 18 vs Bourbon KV 16

Borgia KV 16 attacks Dragon-newts KV 6 .......This is not worth playing ...Auto win to the Borgias of Forvetti ... Dragon Newts conquered.

Dragon Newts will pay tribute (25% rounded up KV ) to the Borgias. ( 2 KV ) per turn.

Added (08-May-2016, 6:14 PM)
---------------------------------------------
Final battle of year 5 played today...

A draw between the Wolfen and the Franx. Wolfen -2 KV ....Franx -1 KV

Franx Charioteer regiment was the man of the match rolling up the Wolfen flank (with a bit of help from a Beast of War wink )

Wolfen man of the match.......nobody really.
