HotT 2.0 Rules
Page 23 combat results table
In light of this, I have signed up for a mythology based HotT campaign at the local club. Having only 15mm Celts at the moment, I went for an army based on the Ulster Cycle:
|Troop Type||Cost Per Element in AP||Number of Elements||Total AP Cost of Elements||Total Army AP|
|C-in-C Chariot Hero |
|Foot Hero |
Cathbad the Druid
Men of Ulster
Other options could include switching Cathbad to a cleric, changing Cathbad for the hero Conall Cernach - Cú Chulainn's avenger or swapping some of the warband for spear. The planned deployment is a block of warband flanked by the two heroes with Cathbad behind in support. Depending on the opponent the warband will go double depth and the heroes may both be on one flank. The main tactic will be to use the heroes to win on the wings then roll up the enemy lines with overlaps and flanks attacks. Bad going will feature in terrain selection.
I will post a battle report after the tournament.
