I'm still improving it, so don't review this one yet.
In the first scenario you will soon be able to buy better weapons and hitpoints.
And the spelling errors will be taken away!
islandweed Need to work on balance(some too hard some too easy) and need to work on triggers(I united tribes but game wouldn't end even if enemy was just 2 monks). Also u could put a flag where u need to be I hate to go north then back down to the east then west and finally find the man Im looking for. This could be good work on it.
The Conquistador I want to review this one. I can review it as it is or I can wait. Which ever you prefer.

Well I haven't written a review in ages, but this grand campaign inspired to me to review it. The entire campaign was a brilliant masterpiece.

The scenario's playability was the only downfall of this campaign. There are secrets and tips to make a scenario a blast to play, but Woad Creations concentrated on an ES-style fun-factor (which isn't very good), IMHO. The balance was nothing less the perfect. All of the scenarios were a challenge and you had to put some effort into them in order to complete them. This witty campaign was definitely creative. The map design was incredible. It reminded me of a mix of ES_Deathshrimp's, Cherub Loco's, and Shadows or Ingo Van Theil (the top terrain designers in my opinion). The story was average, but the instructions were clear and the bitmaps were wonderful so I gave this criteria a 5.

Overall, this campaign is almost a masterpiece. If the fun-factor/playability was improved, this campaign could have hit it big. Well I suggest you download this campaign today if you're in for a great campaign!

GOOD POINTS
-Hard but possible gameplay
-Several witty concepts and ideas
-Brilliant map design
-Bland but epic story (Good for an AOK scn., but not for a novel)
-Clear-cut instructions
-Beautiful intro bitmaps.


BAD POINTS
-Dull fun-factor

There's way more good points then bad points in this campaign. So its obviously a great piece of work! Download it now!

This Campaign is delightful, and yes at times hard, but I found it overall a very enjoyable and playable campaign. Derfel has a Terrific story and Instructions and all I can say is why are you waiting, D/L this one Now :) Thanks Derfel for a very enjoyable campaign and keep up the Great work. I think that the 4.6 that TDS gave this is a Terrific Review score for this campaign :)
DownLoad it today !
TNK A great campaign with excellent map design!
Attila_Kiwi That was awesome. For some reason it was fun to be stuck with Spearmen and Men@Arms rather than the Champs and Halberdiers.

One thing, who is stan? Why does he review stuff?
Attila_Kiwi One small peice of constructive critisism.
I dunno if it was the Ai or not, but in a couple of the scenarios i found the enemy just stood there as i hacked them to peices. eg: Wen u have to "stop the scottish raid" the raiders came but my men just demolished them and they walked into it.

Anyway thats really the only problem in my opinion.
