As well as a club general Meeting last night, we got to play Dux Brit. Very much a playtest rather than a raid – testing two things:
- Raids where the British attack the Saxons (because reasons :))
- More testing whether the British Shock Cavalry in the Dux Raiders Gwŷr y Gogledd force are overpowered against forces that don’t have much in the way of ranged attacks.
Carl had (with some trepidation) the Saxons, I had the British.
|British forces advance to take a Saxon-held village. Standard raid scenario, just with the rôles reversed.|
|…and here come the British Lord’s companions…|
That’s a very painful 16 dice. Doubled for Shock Cavalry charging, doing double Shock after that.
We paused there, once we’d rolled for effect, and talked through a few things, ran the ‘what if the Saxons had charged home’ test’…
I’ll document our thoughts in the next post.
