I had a couple of DBA 3.0 games at the FBC wargames weekend, using my Communal Italians and Papal Italians. I only wish I'd got to try capturing a BUA with my Communal Italian carroccio - I was sorely tempted.

Just few question:
- did you get into CC in how many turns? Three?
- did you got space/time do some kind of manouvere? It seems - judging by the pics - you both go quite straight forward.

It's not - in any way - a critic to you skills, I just would like to understand if the narrow deployment space will reduce the time to do some "tricks" and if first un/correct elements positioning will become crucial.

PS: did you will try Papal or Communal vs. Med.German? Hd, will be so durable?

Hi Filippo,

We deployed a little bit apart so it took until the attacker's second bound for combat to take place. So you don't have much time at all for pre battle manouevre. I suspect that many games will start with a good deal of movement out to the sides, as people struggle to widen their deployments.

Ciao Stephen,
this is what I'm thinking too.
I've not understand so far if this will be a "plus" or a "minus" of 3.0 but...
thank you for your reply.
