Lithuanian Army Lists?

Post by Strategiser » Tue Oct 22, 2019 11:48 am

Hi there,
I have just bought all three of the new army books for the FoG AM 3rd edition. Looking through the lists, I am a little puzzled not to see ANY Lithuanian army lists in neither Book 2 nor Book 3. Unless it is actually there and for some reason I cannot see it, I can only assume this is an omission given the level of regional influence Lithuanian Kingdom had at the time.
I would be curious to hear the designer's viewpoint on this and, if it is indeed an omission, it would be great if perhaps a PDF army list(s) would be issued to be downloaded.
Many thanks!

Hello, I'm not the designer but am aware of his rationale. The thinking was to reduce the number of army list books from lots down to 3 to save on cost to players and there were casualties.

Hi and thanks for your reply.

Although I certainly welcome this rationale of just having a total of three army books (this is great!), I am not entirely sure how could the Lithuanian army list be removed from Book 3 given their regional influence in the said period and the fact that some of the factions included in Book 3 carried much less historical weight during that period of time.

Agree completely, lots of historically important armies disappeared and some absolute non-entities remained

You could work up one from the old list to make it V3 compliant and post here for review. I have been working up quite a few old lists to add variety for the campaigns I run.

Hi and thanks for all replies so far.

Unfortunately I do not have the old book and so was hoping the designers would do the work in the form of a downloadable PDF.
