Re: Armored Horse Archers

Mind you I would also say that IMO fully armoured horse archers for the Sasanids are justified from Ammianus :D

Re: Armored Horse Archers

it could be solved for that by classifying them as Armoured Catafracts For more historical flavour that would be a really nice change! Please consider it! But still, if they dont evade anymore, i think it should be necassary to strengthen their stats, maybe through making them "fully armored", like...

Re: Armored Horse Archers

The Straegikon specifically says that unlike the Turks the Sasanids did not wheel about (or some such similar turn) and then return to shoot you. That they can do so is a weakness inherited from...

Re: Late Roman infantry bows

That makes sense. Thanks! I'd be curious to know why late Roman foot was rated light spear and not defensive spear. My impression was that they fought in ranks are were primarily used defensively. Maybe it's because they represent the transition between 1-2c Roman offensive infantry and later Byzan...

If they get snapped up fairly quickly there may be a chance of a few more being made available later - happens sometimes.

Anyway, bought mine as well so 8 left.

Re: List Errata

Yes I agree, I think we probably missed the asterisk off of the ally. Terry? It would be more sensible to put the asterisk on the allied commanders rather than in the allied list. That would leave Cassivellaunus with no compulsory warriors. If he took an allied general it would seem reasonable that...

Re: Army Lists - Book 2

That "if" may prove to be a large one.

However, I have great hopes that there will be a list or two in Book 2 that will allow you to dribble incoherently about :wink:
