My First effort: Hunters and Hunted

My First effort: Hunters and Hunted

Postby philhendry » 01 Oct 2008

This scenario is designed for a 'skirmishy' set of rules - GW's 'Lord of the Rings' would be ideal. There are some LotR stats for Romans and Celts available here: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/LOTRvariants/

A small group of Hamian bowmen are out hunting game 'for the pot' in the area near Hadrian’s wall. Unbeknownst to them, they have unwittingly trampled through an area of ground sacred to the Textoverdi (a clan of the Brigantes tribe) in which it is forbidden to hunt. Naturally, the Britons have decided that, in order to set matters to rights, the hated Romans must be slaughtered to a man.

The Table

6’ x 4’ (1.8m x 1.2m), with a scattering of terrain - some rough patches, small copses, etc, plus, perhaps, a bronze-age barrow to show why the Celts consider the ground to be sacred.

Forces

Romans - 8 Hamian archers.
Celts - 2 chariots and 16 dismounted warriors.

Set Up

Set up the 8 Hamians in the middle of the table, and the two chariots and 8 of the Celts on one of the short edges. The other Celts will arrive on the same table edge on the roll of 5 or 6 on a D6 - roll at the beginning of each turn.

The Game

The aim of the Hamians is to escape, the aim of the Celts is to stop them. After 8 turns, if more than half the Hamians have left from the board edge opposite where the Celts arrive, the Hamians have won. If none of the Hamians have left, the Celts win, otherwise it’s a draw.

Hi Phil

Not that I have a clue about ancients or ancients rules but it strikes me that's its REALLY important as to which side has the first turn in this scenario and I can't see it written anywhere

Cheers

Yeah, you're right there Bob, I forgot to write it in! Brits get the first go or else they don't stand a chance of catching the Romans.
