Thanks for the reply 8-)

I'll ask some sages of my acquaintance if they can think of any examples pertinent to Archers v. Artillery.

Re: New Shooting Rules

We play tested 100 years war three archers firing on one knight does not work as well as spreading out your archers to make sure all three get shots. With the new system you actively want to spread out your shots, because then you have a slim chance to destroy all targets. A presentation suggestion...

Ya, I found that out. Tiberius, is it?

Yup :)

Re: Dacian

15 BC is the conquest of the Scordisci in particular, yes. The Romans were subjugating various inland peoples of the Balkans around that time. The entire right bank of the Danube didn't become formally Roman until the annexation of the Odrysian kingdom in AD 46 I believe.

Re: Dacian

Some legacy systems do; some do not; and sometimes they disagree. For example, I think DBA 2.2 had Sarmatian allies, but none of the others; I'm not sure what DBM, DBMM, or 3.0 have. DBA 3.0 has the same Sarmatian allies as in 2.2. In the revised DBMM list, they get Sarmatian (Iazygian), Bastarnaea...

Re: Ghurid infantry

Interesting. However, a covering "like a board" seems more like a mantlet or perhaps a pavise than armor, so "put it on" doesn't fit. Whether or not there are wheels isn't the issue. "Put it on" (in the "wear it" sense) also doesn't fit with a thick raw hide ...

Re: Ghurid infantry

What Juzjani describes doesn't seem to be wheeled mantlets - the soldiers "put it on" or "place this upon their shoulders". The relevant passage in two different translations: It is the practice in the armies of Ghor for the infantry to protect themselves in battle with a coverin...

Re: Proposed 15mm Sumerian Range (by Eureka)

Thanks. :) I'll query, tho, if Sumerian war-carts did have long lances. Acc'd Hamblin's Warfare in the Ancient Near East to 1600 BC the attested weapons are javelins and axes, and that agrees with what I recall seeing in reliefs. Do you have any that Hamblin overlooked, or are you interpreting them ...

Ghurid infantry

The Ghurid "line" infantry are classed as Light Spear, indeed they're one of the exemplars of the type on the Meshwesh troop types page. Where does this come from? When they were discussed for the DBMM lists, the only description anyone found of them was Juzjani's, which notes them as usin...

Re: Proposed 15mm Sumerian Range (by Eureka)

Is, BTW, Chariots the appropriate classification for Sumerian battle-carts? The troop definitions suggest that javelin-chucking chariots should be Battle Taxis.

(I'm incidentally somewhat puzzled that javelins should make you BT but a lance make you Ch: Surely the latter is even more short-ranged.)
