Game 110 - Forces of Basilea - 2019/02/27

Greetings!

With CanCon 2019 over I looked at new opportunities to play more games of Kings of War. In particular because I did not participate in Australian Clash of Kings but played some historical games this time instead (please check my reports from Mortem et Gloriam games!).

However, I was very curious what type of armies people brought to the event this time and I wished I could have taken part in two events at the same time! 

Hence I talked to some players who participated in the tournament and Jeff was obviously one of them. Surprisingly, he decided to try a completely new army than the one he took to Clash of Kings 2019. The reason was that although he won all his games, he finished 2nd overall. It was because with his Forces of Nature army he often won on scenarios but was not able to rout significant amount of enemy units. 

His new idea was about Forces of Basilea army. For this game we decided to play at 2000 points, simply because we were not yet sure what would be the most popular size for the new season.

Mortem et Gloriam - Game 23 - 2019/02/24

Hello!

The first game of the second day of the Mortem Et Gloriam tournament at CanCon 2019 was against a new type an enemy. Hordes of barbarians in the shape of the Alamanni with some Frank allies commanded by Dru.

This army was a completely new opposing force for me and I had no idea what to expect. First thing I noticed when I saw the units being deployed was that they were quite big. Eight bases for typical TuG and six only for the superior troops. 

Another element is the inclusion of allies led by talented commander. The probability of the allies being unreliable is very low when their commander received four cards. In such circumstances one can assume the allies will be fighting as the main force. Here are the details of the Alamanni with Frank allies army list:
