Scots Common Army Pikemen – Did they have shields?

We are working away on the Thistle & Rose figures and are now onto the Scots. We have 6 poses of Schiltron Pike figures both with and without shields (and an additional 3 poses kneeling.) In looking through the available art work from the Osprey’s for Bannockburn, Otterburn, etc. and in looking ...

Re: Stratclyde spear

It is interesting how these armies have been interpreted over time, the Scots going from Spear to Pikes. I'm just starting into reading in this period to figure out how to match our figures (Picts, Welsh, and Scots) to the to types.

Re: Basing of Rabble

I've also suggested 5 looks more like a Rabble and would be a plus from a figure manufacturer stand point. :-)

Practically I have done a mix of both. I think it depends on the army. In the Lydian expample with so many Rabble stands the 3 look fine to me.

Re: Warrior Point Cost

DS,

Thanks. More figures is good from the T&R stand point even if it does mess up my current armies.

Warrior Point Cost

Putting together some Gallic armies and wondering whether the point cost of Warrirors is still 4 points?

Re: Meshwesh Suggestion

I have had a lot of success cutting and pasting the Meshwesh list into a spreadsheet. I add the costs do the caluclations there. If I want to go back I have a point of reference.

Combat Math Applied

From another thread, I thought it might be interesting to discuss the doubling to kill game mechanic. From some articles from the legacy systems on line game is the excerpt below by By Jason Ehlers. There are interesting implications at the lower end of the factors (1,2) and higher end too (4,5). Th...

Re: Warriors and Pike

DK, Of course I am a weirdo, I loved school. Just giving you fair warning. Perfect answer for 1. Did you go through the historical battles and calculate winning percentages (even at a rough basis due to lack of sources) as part of the overall results testing? Question 2 let me reframe it. How did yo...
