Two-way battles and Four-way battles are kinda obvious... start along edges of table or in corners... but how do you do a three-way battle?
Get one player to chose a deployment zone about 18" in diametre, then the other two players chose a deployment zone of 18" across that is abot 24" away from another deployment zone.
There is an battle report in an old White Dwarf with a three player battle report but I cant remember which issue. It works well as me and my mates use it quite regularly
Only a few prefer liberty - the majority seek nothing more than fair masters
I would say have one person with an army twice the size, and make it 2v1.
e.g. Player 1 (1000 points) and Player 2 (1000 points) VS Player 3 (2000 points).
That usually works for me.
Chaos - 11W 0L 0D
Orks - 8W 0L 0D
Tyranids - 8W 0L 0D
My friends and I have played many three way battles. Generally two set up on the corners along a long edge, and the third person sets up in the middle on the other side. Another way is two people set on the edge opposite each other down one end, and the third sets up in the middle of the opposite short edge.
Here's what we do in our group.
On a 4'x8' table, we split the long edges in 2 zones of 48".
Including the 2 short edges, we now have 6 deployment zones of 48" wide.
One player picks any zone. The other 2 must be at least one deployment zone from the other.
So everyone has a buffer of one deployment zone between them.
Uh... got it?
