Re: Slingers vs Javelinmen

Nowhere did I say cheap, in fact I specifically mentioned expensive but shiney. And neither of us can definitively prove who was wearing what in terms of outright armourial protection, so it's all assumption. You seem to be pursuing a cognitive bias beyond what is reasonable or indeed demonstrable....

Re: Armour POAs

some people are comparing it to reenactment duels with blunt weapons, yet comparation is not good, because in those matches, you actually know you wont be killed, therefore you attack without actual fear for your life at all times.. those guys would behave completely differently if their life would ...

Re: Armour POAs

Also, if you look at battle casualty info we got for those battles, its quite telling how many casualties there were from initial contact.. Typically, casualties were dealt almost identically to both sides in close combat, then side which was taking more beating (not necessary more casualties) would...

Re: Armour POAs

From realism point of perspective - legionary in his mail shirt, helmet and shield, would be extremely hard to kill frontally with any ranged weapon, and even more problematically with melee weapon.. Mail shirt itself was capable stopping any one-handed melee weapon of ancient era, it was humanly i...

Re: Strongest Army Lists?

its not proclaimed superiority.. lol, they won their wars in that time period, it was not because their generals were excellent (most often were quite unqualified or incompetent) but because of strength of their legions they pulled through. Whole concept of military organization where even low comma...

Re: Sandbox Campaign suggestions

not an sandbox campaign idea, but what about instead of historical famous battles represented as single scenario, these battles would be represented by short mini-campaigns? as i mentioned in other thread - battles like Zama, which were divided into multiple stages (initial clash with elephants, inf...

Re: Zama - Historical Simulation - Good Joke part 2

Perhaps he should try it against a human opponent that knows how to play the game and see if it is so easy and unhistorical. This is obviously still a game but it will do the simulation part fairly well. The Total War series are probably much worse in the simulation part in my opinion, not much rea...

Re: Zama - Historical Simulation - Good Joke part 2

because "Slingers vs Javelinmen" was never intended to critize the game like this. I have started it when i noticed tendency of slingers doing more damage than javelinmen when game was not even released.. (youtube lets play videos) this at the other side is just s rant. he tries to bash the game for...

Re: Resilient Gauls?

yeah, im using that 7+3 tactics in my Roman campaigns quite often, anyway i see an option for 5+5 as well, especially if you can utilize terrain to your advantage, or if you can place strong flanks weak center - AI never deploys strong in the middle, so you can always just keep fewer units there and...

Re: Resilient Gauls?

yet results are not that good actually, and Gallic warbands are easily wiping out Hellenic units with ease.. otherwise this thread would be not even started.. and im perfectly fine with Top Down model, anyway even that has to follow some rules otherwise its just mess...

Re: Resilient Gauls?

Actually, melee combat was nothing of that sort - units met in close combat just for few short minutes until both sides god exhausted, pulled off to safe distance, recuperated/replaced tired men with men from rear ranks, and engaged again.. during that "lul" both sides thrown their javelins, or what...

Re: Dangerous Camels

Re: Resilient Gauls?

actually, both Hoplites, phalangites, thureophoroi and all kinds of gallic warbands have armor value 50. yet while Hoplites used large 90cm aspis, metal helmet and some sort of linen armor, gallic warbands typically had just shields, with some of also having helmets. Romans describe their shields to...

Re: Slingers vs Javelinmen

Both these deaths were mentioned because they had huge imp...

Re: Resilient Gauls?

Personally, i think Gauls are way too much armored, considering they usually only carried a shield, and only few of them even had helmets.. only nobles had mail, and those would usually be with cavalry... While Greeks at the other side - Hoplites had strong and wide shield and helmets, and some form...
