If your just going to get two to start with, Rise of Rome and Immortal Fire go well together and with the basic Fog game covering the period from the rise of Persia to the end of the Roman Republic.

Apart from using the DAG you can then design our own historical scenarios using the battle groups that ship with the module.


Enjoy

Hi Kieth Thanks for this. now that I come to think of it the Granadine foot crossbowmen should also be upgraded to use the new Islamic figures that will ship with Eternal Empire. This leaves the Western European style mounted crossbowmen in the Later Granadine army looking a little out of place. Whi...

Hi Kieth Thanks for that. However I do think that the Ottoman artillery crew need to be swapped over so as to use the original figures that shipped with “Storm of Arrows”. I am currently playing a large DAG Ottoman/Hungarian game and both sides have the same Western European artillery crew wearing p...

Islamic Artillery crew and Turkish MF Janissaries with handg

As things stand the available artillery crew don’t look that Islamic. The two sets that shipped with “Storm Of Arrows” actually being better than the new ones (which look European) that however appear to have been set up for the various Islamic army lists that have guns. Can we have some more Islami...

Re: Improving The Single Player Game

**allow BG’s to be set at less than their full % strength at the start of a scenario (also allow them to start disrupted/fragged) You can sort of do this at the moment. If you place terrain under a unit that disorders it, have them move second, and place units from the other side close enough to the...

Replies: 2
Views: 197

Hi I think you will find that these figures have been borrowed from the “Swords & Scimitars” folder. To access them in the editor you would therefore need to own that module as well as “Storm Of Arrows”. The same is true of the Gepid or Early Lombard lancer cavalry in “Legions Triumphant” who are in...

Re: THE SPARTACUS REVOLT

So one needs the Rise of Rome expansion to run these scenarios? Alan Not any more after the last but one patch, now you can play all custom scenarios regardless if which modules you own and still see all the figures. These Spartacus Revolt scenarios look very good. I have just bought the book on Am...

Re: Access to All Custom Games

This used to be the case, but the "ghost graphics" issue does not crop up now I have been playing some if the Irish Wars scenarios with a friend who does not have "Storm Of Arrows" and he has no problems seeing the graphics.

Access to All Custom Games

I think its also worth pointing out that once you have the 150 update even without any of the expansions you can download and play any of the custom scenarios including those made with figures from expansion modules. If you look in the scenario thread you will see that these have almost all been col...
