Reiter Vs Swedes

Key thing to remember is that adding more shooting to the tercio was the evolution response to the Reiter. The Reiter is not intended to trade shoots with foot, rather it is intended to blow hole in a pike block with little or no shooting power. Tell the Reiter BG to go play with something other th...

Already been there Kevin, there are 8 MM models about ready for basing. The LF escorts have been based thanks to Madmike111's tips on a previous post re Lt Chariots.
Thanks

Lydian Cavalry

Which Cavalry option would be best, Armoured or Protected ?

Lydians

Thanks for that tip MM111. I am just making up my Lydian Army which includes 2 BGs of Lt Chariots. Lydians have 16 compulsory bases of MF / LF which were causing me some problems now I will base them up as LF and brigade them with the Chariots.

Cav through LF

Found the answer from an earlier post by Stevoid with a reply from RBS.

As the Cav were in a single rank they all remain in a single rank aligned with the Cav base that interpenetrated the LF.

Only if the Cav were in 2 ranks would they be split.

Do they exceed their evade move distance & maintain a line 4 bases wide or split into ...

Would the 15mm Essex Hittite Two Horse with two Javelinmen, code BS 40, be a good Lydian chariot model ?

Lydians

Thanks for the replies, will give it a go. I did start building one years ago, even bought the War Dogs, but gave up. This army becoming available renewed my interest in the period, pity that War Dogs are no longer in the list.
