Northern League - 2023 Review

It’s that time again: time to review the state of the Northern League (the wargames competition scene in the North of England).  In fact it's a little early this year as the organisers seem to be red hot this year.

I'm glad to say that this year I managed to participate in my increasingly standard two rounds.

15 mm - Iranian Cavalry (Forged In Battle)

When I began building an "Arab Conquest" era army, in February last year, I settled on a North African Arab army (132 in Art de la Guerre) not least because it offers steppe terrain and camel troops.

Needless to say I got sidetracked into painting units for other Arab Empire lists, but I had began to dread preparing the Forged in Battle horses (see below).  So I kept putting off these final cavalry.  However, they are done now.

ADLG: A Personal FAQ?

HervĂ© Caille, the author of Art de la Guerre (ADLG), & his support team run a list of official clarifications for V4.  The latest version is dated August 2022.  The lack of a more recent version reflects well on the stability of the new version (V4).

Even so, every once in a while something crops up during play, or on the ADLG Forum, that isn't covered and should probably be in the next official version.  Here are five common situations that have been clarified recently but aren't in the official version (yet?).  For ADLG nerds only.
