I hope everybodyis having a great summer. I am back home in Greece swiming, disseratating and paitning and playing DBA. I persuaded my good freind Peter (3 times Greek Warhammer 40k Champion) to start DBA and we have been spending a healthy amount of time painting and playing DBA. He is working on a Nikiforean Byzantine Army, a German Medieval Army (abc), and Vikings, while I am working on Ancient Spanish (a) and my Italian Condotta. All in all a good haul. Together we are the Peristeri DBA Club. A force porfunde of two :)
We have palyed 5 games trying to learn the ropes. The first two were Divine Empire (Nikiforean Byzantine) vs. Undead, from my HOTT campaign (find it here http://phdleadhead.blogspot.com/2010/12/map-above-represents-fantasy-world-i.html). That went 1:1. We then played Slameian Tribes (Ancient SPanish) vs. Divine Empire (from HOTT), and two Nikiforean Byzantine Civil Wars. The score currently is 2:1 for Peter. Fine below two quick battle reports with pictures from the Slamenian Tribe vs. Divine Empire games, and the Nikiforean civil war I lost. Generally speaking I leraned several things from the game: 1) Make sure to understand the rules. Not fully understanding them puts you at a severe disadvatage 2) I suck at combined arms armies (like my Nikiforeans) 3) I have a tendecy to suffer losses due to recoiling into unomvable objects. 4) My LH in my Nikiforean army has died in every one of the 10 DBA battles I have fought until know. 5) Surprised at how guerrilaish was the battle between the Salmenians (ancient spanish) and Divine Empire( Nikiforeans)-> kudos to DBA for creating a good approximation.
