The last of 3 25mm, "Heavy Metal" battlereports using the L' Art de la Guerre rule set.
"Our scouts have found the Armenian camp", reported Adidasphoros.
"Bagratid Armenian or Armenian Principality?", inquired Nikephoros.
"Does it matter?" asked Pumaphoros.
"Of course it matters!"
Adidasphoros and Pumaphoros just stared at their brother.
"Nike, in all the time I have known you, you have never cared about the specific list of your opponent. Your decision tree consists of "Does my opponent have good cavalry, Yes or No? If yes, then you try to find a river to reduce their movement, and if no, then not." said Pumaphoros with some annoyance.
"Yeah, then you pick a hill with a field on it to shoot from, and a gully to hide troops in.", added Adidasphoros
"And that hill idea never works because our opponent never comes near it. We always wind up coming off of it anyway."
"But the gully idea works fairly often."
"All we know for sure is they don't have any Cataphracts."
"Yeah, because of the tournament requirements."
"And because neither of the Dark Age Lists for Armenia has them anyway."

It must be nice to love a game so much that that's essentially all you play.

Interesting, certainly. While it is fun to play different games, I suppose there is something to be said for getting really good at one game. I've been told (which is to say, I have no personal experience, at all) that gamers in the eastern United States tend to concentrate on a small number of rules sets, which they learn well, while those of us out west tend to do more different rules, but don't know them so well.
