Hi JP, glad you enoyed the first couple of games. I have played F&F for many years, and have also run competitions in the UK. I needed an way to generate fair armies for these competitions, so that the best generalship would win. So I devised a points system for all the difernt elements, and worked out a variety of armies to within 5 points, either side of 1,000.
This seems to have worked well, providing games won in competition, roughly equal for both sides. Together with random events and a random terrain it makes for a huge variety of games, with no army list for a competition organiser to check before hand.
