Indian armour

Post by rbodleyscott » Fri Nov 12, 2010 9:27 am

I think we have agreed to allow Pacific NW and Iroquois wooden armour to count for an Armoured option.

The remaining question is whether all Warriors should get the option or only separately deployed veterans.

Iroquois

See: The Iroquois League at War in Colonial America by Daniel P.Barr

See P.15 re massed armoured formations.

Also see: Native North American armor, shields and fortifications by David E.Jones

Tlingit

Unfortunately the pages in Jones covering the Tlingit cannot be accessed, but see

One point is the bit about each armoured warrior being supported by 2 unarmoured. If that was the case, then perhaps it should only be the separately deployed veterans that count armoured.

OTOH it talks about young warriors training by sparring in armour, so clearly it wasn’t entirely status related.
