Thanks for the reply.

For the climate type, might "Riverine" be an option?

Optional general's type again

I was looking at the Melukhkhan and Pre-Vedic Indian list, which "General's Troop Type: Light Spear", "Spearmen: Light Spear or Heavy Foot: 1-8", and no other troops that can be Light Spear. Do I understand correctly that this means that if I take at least one element of spearmen...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Scots Isles and Highlands have two allied contingents designated as "Orkney or Manx Vikings". Given their contents and the lists they're drawn from I imagine the first should be "Orkney Vikings" and the second "Manx Vikings".

Re: Camels

One use of camels that David didn't mention is Cyrus' supposed stratagem of mounting his cavalry on baggage camels to discomfit Lydian cavalry. Presumably another battle card if it's to be represented. Don't remember off-hand if we represent that -- it is one of the less bizarre of the "suppos...
