Guidelines for brand new lists

An unofficial forum for people to discuss potential new lists and amendments. Note this is not about picking armies from existing lists, it is about creating lists for armies that do not exist or suggesting changes to those that do.

Guidelines for brand new lists

Post by rbodleyscott » Sun Mar 08, 2009 10:44 am

There are certain guidelines which new lists should follow:

All troop numbers are proportional to the size of the whole army and not based on absolute historical numbers. For this purpose, bases of all troop-types are assumed to contain the same number of men.

One should, of course, avoid increasing the number of minority types beyond what could reasonably be fielded proportionately as part of a 1000 point army (allowing for commanders).

The minima in a list should not exceed 250 points at any date, not including commanders.

The maxima in a list should be at least 1150 points excluding commanders, artillery, fortifications and fortified camps. This should apply at the date offering the smallest total of troops. It doesn’t matter if the total maxima goes higher at other dates. Where it is necessary to increase maxima to achieve 1150 points, numbers should not be added to minority troop types but to common troop types.
