Now I have heard DBA and HOTT rules are hard to understand when you read them. After trying I see what they mean. I started thinking of other rules I have found on line. One set was an ancient variation of Battle Cry that uses DBA stands. It seemed like a good possibility. After all, the rules even mention camels and elephants! I dug out some of my Peter Laings, including camels and elephants to give them a go.
|On the left is an Arab army with three camel units in the middle. On the right is a Persian army with an elephant unit in the center.|
|My elephants didn't last long in the battle. An armored camel unit rolled three "retreat" dice; the elephants routed right off the table!|
|The Persian heavy cavalry managed to rout in turn one of the armored camel units.|
