Historical Games / Roman Dice Tower
« Last post by Karak Norn Clansman on Today at 09:08:45 PM »
Courtesy of Bloodbeard, who shared this piece of news:


Quote from: Archaeologist Ticia Verveer
A Roman throwing tower found at Vettweiß-Froitz-heim in Germany. The sides have been worked open, so that the players could see the dice rolling. Invented to prevent cheating. Text on the back reads: utere felix vivas ('use it and live as a lucky man').

4th century

On the front it says Pictos victos hostis deleta ludite securi ('The Picts have been defeated, the enemy destroyed, play carefree').

The text refers to a Roman victory over the Picts in Scotland, north of Roman Britannia.

It sounds like all armies will get some form of summoning.  It could mean games drag on a lot longer, if everyone can summon.

I agree. I like being able to summon some zombies or maybe some units of demons without having to preplan the points. I'm not fond of the thought of anything getting summoned.

I'd have to see the full rules to see if this is workable, and fair.  Bringing back a unit of 30 grave guard, or Mortarch isn't the same as summoning a unit of 10 zombies.

TBH thats the cleanest my painting area has been for some time, I getdstracted by different armies constantly, I was painting Imperial Guard on it the week before next to the Dwarfs, I have too much hobby and not enough time.

I guess this is true for most of us.  :::cheers:::

Summoning adressed

Every army gets a way to earn points for a faction specific resouce in which they can then use to summon units.. this is cost free
So now you build your 2000 point army as a 2000 point army and any summoning you can get during the game is bonus

You can add 1 engineer instead of priest, 6 horrors,bases for rat ogres, trolls and blue scribes. Done!!
