Very good, I'll bring my Soviets and you can try to assault them.

I was wrong about the World Cup final, it's actually at 11:00 (probably finishing around 1:00). I'll text you to arrange a game.

I'm back from vacation and would like to play. I would also like to watch the World Cup final, though, which starts at 2:00 pm. Would you be interested in playing either tomorrow (Saturday) or earlier on Sunday?

Sounds good. I'll be bringing three elite elephants, so be sure to have a plan for dealing with them!  :)

Yes, I am. I don't have a mat, though, so please bring yours. I'll see you on Sunday.

Let's play Bolt Action. I would like some more practice with the Soviets.

Yes, I should be there. What would you like to play?

That sounds good. I think I would use three competent commanders in that set up, because you'll have three components in Corps II and III (the heavies, the mediums, and the lights). An ordinary commander would probably struggle with that. It shouldn't hurt the cavalry wing to downgrade to competent.

Sounds good. You might also experiment with splitting the heavy and medium spear between Corps II and III so that they both can cover small patches of difficult terrain and open ground as well. Matt has had some success with this approach when playing the Byzantines.

That looks like a solid mix of heavy infantry and cavalry. I would recommend some medium spear with your heavies to contest difficult terrain. Also, FYI, this list only has 3+ command points, so you can't have two competent commanders and a brilliant one. You will need to downgrade one of them.

Here's what I came up with for the list:

ARTHURIAN ROMANO-BRITISH
Corps I
Brilliant commander (Arthur)
4x Heavy cavalry impact elite
3x Heavy cavalry
2x Light cavalry javelin mediocre

Corps II
Competent commander (Bedevere)
8x Heavy spearmen
2x Light infantry bow

Corps III
Ordinary commander (Sir Robin)
4x Medium spearmen
2x Light infantry javelin

25 units, 200 points

Arthur and his "knights" can put serious pressure on one of your opponent's flanks while Bedevere and the spearmen hold the center. Sir Robin and his boys find some nice terrain to hide in (ideally near a key point on the battlefield) and generally threaten to pop out and cause trouble (or you can put them in ambush).

This list should do fine against most things, but massed elephants (Classical Indians), cataphracts (Parthians), or shooty cavalry (Mongols) will be difficult. C'est la guerre, however, in this game there are no true power lists.

I would like to try out my new Soviet force. So, Bolt Action?

Is anyone going to be in this Sunday (June 3)? I would be up for a game of AdG or Bolt Action.
