Medieval Cypriot - Any Suggestions?

Post by RobKhan » Sat Oct 25, 2014 12:12 pm

Hi All,
Does anyone have any tips for Med. Cypriots. You can get a lot of Arm.Def. Spears, Knights, XBows, some LF Bows and some Off. MF. spears.
Has anyone played this? My current trial list has 2 BG of knights and 4 BG of Def. Sp and the Catalan MF. Off. Sp.

Cheers

In V1 I looked at various Armoured defensive spear armies and I think Hungarians won out for some reason.

I see some fun in this list by the Historical POW, IMHO having a lot of feudal knight with anachronistic superior Almughavars and Venetian Troops (not to forgot Turkish mercenaries LH) is quite a freak army. Nonetheless, having some Pikemen I would suggest you, but in late XV century defensive spearmen is not enough against European armies. If you play it in the feudal timeframe, otherwise should be fine and a bit more coherent.
