Legio Heroica are a beautiful figure I use them for my Later Crusaders but they are a big figure so they many look a bit funny next to some other makes. Though if the figures are in separate BGs and from a distance they will look OK.

I used Allain Touller figures for my Mongols, the figures have great detail and a wide variety including dismounted cav. My two issues with Allain Touller are; 1. his shipping costs are high if you only want to order a small number of figures as he uses a flat rate so great for large orders bad if y...

As design policy, the cheap troops in the general lists are often in large units to stop lots of little 'filler' units in an army created from those. The starter armies don't have this problem, so get more latitude as to what can be in them. One rule for the Rom Dom swarm and another for the rest o...

So how many Pilgrims should you have?

I was checking some options for the Early Crusader army and I noticed that on page 7 of Swords and Scimitars that the starter army has one BG of Pilgrims with 6 bases. The main army list states a Pilgrim BG contains 8-12 bases which one is correct? I have assumed that as the Pilgrims are a mob then ...

Personally for spearmen and crossbowmen I use greys and browns for clothing with some red occassionally. With my knights everyone gets a different shield desgin. For spearmen each base has the same shield desgin and on some of the spearmen bases I include a dismounted knight as the lord.

And I thought I was asking a dumb question but from your responses it can be unclear. Main points; If you opponent lines up on the edge of a terrain feature clarify exactly is the BG on the every edge or slightly back as soon as the BG has finished moving. I good tip for undrilled troops make sure y...

effects of terrain on close combat

If a BG of MF bow are entirely in an open field but on the edge of it they are not considered in open terrain. They are charged by CAV lancers who contact the front of the MF are the CAV considered to be in open terrain or to be in the open field?

I thought there was a discussion about this and the ruling was once a charge has been started it cannot be stop so a BG will move its full modified charge distance until it either hits an enemy BG or uses its movement up. So it the KN bg was with 4MU of the Longbows the longbows would hit them. Only...
