This weekend was my veterans day/birthday wargaming extravaganza! It is a time when I force my family to wargame with me. =) Not all the players were familiar with 3E, so I came up with a simple idea to modify Heroquest stats and dice.
Each warband had 12 members
they're stats where up to the players. Each warband got to have 20
hitpoints, 20 attacks, and 20 defense to be divided between them. This
gave quite a bit of flexibility, and also a sense of tension as we did
not know the stats of our opposing players.
initiative was card based per turn, and combat was with the Heroquest
dice with all figures defending with white shields. Simply put all hits
occurred on 4,5,6. All saves could be defended with 5,6. All in all
it was quite fun, and seemed to be the favorite game of the day, with us
playing three total games of it.
Now on to the action!
