Hi, I have a question about the point buy system. I read the instruction under "Variants" on the left side of the website, and I couldn't find a description about setting up the units. How are units set up at the beginning of the game?

Thank you.

Hi liebenasuka,
I think you could setup units on the board (maybe using something to hide opposite side) and then reveal your armies.

Or you could even use step 3-6 from Don Clarke's ScenarioX deployment procedure
See here

www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/Variants/Army-List/sc...army-list-usage.html


After secretly chosing your army composition roll a die (higher = attacker).
The defender now deploys their troops within two hexes of their base edge, light troops and leaders may deploy within three hexes of the base edge.
The attacker then sets up on the opposite board edge following the same rules.
The defender may now redeploy any two units to anywhere within two hexes (three hexes for light troops) of their own base edge. For this purpose a leader counts as a unit.


Please, give them a try and let us know your preferred choice.

Thank you! :) I'll give them a try. And for the first method, there is still some limitation as to where to deploy the troops, right? I imagine it still has to be on the edge of the board or else it would just fly everywhere. lol
