Re: Name for Fantasy Triumph!

And your marketing rationale for liking Fantasy Triumph! is? Or you just like the sound. I like the sound, as said, but I can't imagine it'd be a particularly bad idea from a marketing perspective either: it makes clear the relation to the mother set while sounding like a meaningful name in its own...

Re: Name for Fantasy Triumph!

I sort of like the sound of "Fantasy Triumph!" actually.

Re: Hero Implementation

A few random thoughts (provoked by doing something with HOTT for the first time in ages this weekend): Do Numenóreans really need some special bonus when they can be Elite Foot and their enemies can be Horde or Rabble? You already have quality distinctions built into the troop types to a greater ext...

Re: East and Ottonian Frankish milites

I'd simply combine the lines, so the Ottonians get 6-12 Milites as "Knights or Javelin Cavalry", leaving the player free to choose what proportion of northerns and southerners they want. Then you have a note saying that the Knights represent hard-charging northerners and the Jav Cav more s...

East and Ottonian Frankish milites

The East and Ottonian Frankish lists both have minima for both "milites" as Knights and "Swabian or Bavarian milites" as Jav Cav. Presumably, the idea is that the hard charging ones are Franconians, Lotharingians or Saxons. Now what's historically dubious is that every army would...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Medieval Swedish list has the general listed as Bad Horse or Heavy Foot, but the list has no Heavy Foot. It's probably meant to be Bad Horse or Elite Foot.

Re: Sumerian Helmets???

Copper helmets are known from Sumerian royal tombs of the First Dynasty of Ur. They're unknown from non-royal tombs, so Hamblin surmises the mass of a Sumerian army would have had leather head protection. They wouldn't be restricted solely to the kings themselves however: they're found on royal body...

Re: What are These?

The spearmen might be New Kingdom Egyptians. They're similar to Chariot's ENK2 Egyptian Spearmen (as in, one suspects they may be based on the same WRG illustration :P ). The axemen might perhaps be meant to be Neo-Assyrians. The shield shape fits, and some reconstructions show Assyrian infantry in ...

Re: Skirmishers shattering Elephants

The successes of light foot (in the general, not the Triumph!-specific troop type sense) against elephants that readily comes to mind are Romans, primarily javelin-chuckers. What examples of bow (or other long-range) skirmishers v. elphants do we have?
