#627

It’s definitely Guilds turn now. No more passing @RossM!


#628

Only one day of teaching left for the year, so I will do this tomorrow.


#629

Firstly I revive three troops from the tanks.


#630

Then shuttle down all 4 to habanya ridge flat for spice collection!


#631

For 4 spice. (Unless I can ferry them into the sietch for 2 spice and then move then, in which case I do that.)


#632

I think the sietch is fully occupied, but not sure of the exact rule.


#633

Okay, I’m here, I’m alive, map soon

EMPEROR: Revive 1 Sardaukar and 2 regular troops for 2 Spice. Ship to Carthag for 2 spice (half for Guild Alliance). Spice paid to Guild.

ATREIDES: Revive 3 for 2 Spice. Ship 5 to Habbanya Sietch for 5 Spice.

BENE GESSERIT: Revives 1 for free. Was already hostile in Carthag, so has access to Thopters. 3 for free to Sink, Carthag stack Thopters to Arrakeen.

GUILD:


#634

When Guild shipped, I want to put one into the polar sink for free. Thats +3 in total for the round, as Guild, Emperor and Atriedes all shipped.

Edit: Also, welcome back!


#635

So guess who has two thumbs and is 110% certain I’ve gotten something wrong on the map? THIS GUY


#636

I count 7 in the Polar Sink, but there was 5 before so I think it should be 8? Can we put little numbers on the stacks? It’s hard to count :frowning:


#637

See, I thought about doing that, but a) there’s limited visual real estate, and b) it looks like butt
I’ll do it if folks want though =)


#638

I vote for small butts when the stack is more than 5.


#639

Or how about slightly offset the stack every 5 units? So the top 5 sit slightly off center from the 5 below it?


#640

I was considering a ring of dots around the faction logo as well?


#641

Sounds aesthetically pleasing.


#642

How nice that we’re pleasantly discussing army aesthetics right before all hell breaks loose in what will definitely be a game-changing battle!


#643

One must look one’s best. My eyes hurt trying to count the stacks. Is it 9 Sandy Bois Vs 8 Atriedes?

Perhaps a bigger dot for every 5 troops, then different colored and smaller dots for the remainder?


#644

Fight time? Let’s do the fighting!


#645

Who are we waiting on?


#646

I think it’s battle phase. What battles do we have?
