Re: 15mm Khurasan Jurchen Jin

Ok, I did not realize there were armies that could not make it to 48 pts without an ally. The Belhae/Chinese contingent isn't really an ally; it is sort of subject troops/auxiliaries upon which the Jurchen Jin became quite dependent. But I'm glad you brought it to our attention; I'm thinking maybe ...

I only counted the ability to do 44 points tops?


You have to take the Bohai (Belhae) infantry, or else take an ally. One or the other.

Re: New Shooting Rules

One tidbit that came up: apparently at Formigny, English longbowmen preferred to charge, capture, and try to drag away French guns over simply shooting the gunners. While this doesn't directly tell us how effective the latter tactic should be, it does suggest that moving into close combat with Arti...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Your explanation is clear enough, but, as you say, hard to infer from Meshwesh itself. Not sure how to better communicate it there, short of a note saying something to the effect of "These are Type III allies, which means you don't get a full Polish army in Grand Triumph!". Maybe changing...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Polish allies for Hussites say "Full Army List: not available". Presumably this should be "Later Polish"? No, not actually. The internal database structure is necessarily rather complicated. Without going into database structure terminology, there are a variety of possibilit...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Hi all, The Golden Horde and Successors list has three slots of Horse Bow. One is the half-battle line 4/10 entry, another is 0/1 no battle line, and the last is 0/2 no battle line (min/max for each). That's not an error, it is just confusing because the color text on that army (army list 279a) isn...

Re: SIGNUP for Chariot Supremacy! Campaign Theme (Cold Wars: March 2018)

Signups are now ongoing. [Recent Changes: added Mike Guth and Wendy Myers. 10 signups now -- DK will play one of Syro-Canaanite, Early Lybian, Minoan, but hasn't decided yet] For anyone who has only one army (or has the firm intent to paint their first army within this theme for the event), as alwa...

Not just Cataphracts. Elite Cavalry, Elephants, Chariots are all much more common General types than Cataphracts.

Re: New Shooting Rules

Hmm. Seems like this is particularly advantageous for those of us who prefer to be aggressive with their ranged units. There is now no risk in shooting the opponent's archers, as they can't shoot back (can't tell you how many frustrating times a return volley 6-1'ed me, while I internally cried out...
