Re: Normans

Normans look like this: ⋅ 0-2x Bow Levy (bowmen) ⋅ 0-1x Archer or Skirmisher (crossbowmen or staff slingers) That isn't going to use all your huge wad of figs, but what that means is that you can base up 2 stands of Bow Levy with your bowmen, 1 stand of Archers (4 figs) with your...

Re: Tibetan

It seems that the "Era of Fragmentation" runs from the fall of the Tibetan Empire in civil war (840s) to mid 11th century. I haven't found anything yet regarding the period from the mid 11th century to the period of Yuan rule (which covers the invasion mentioned earlier). Some minor kingdo...

Re: Tibetan

Been reading about "Era of Fragmentation " Tibet. It seems that the Islamic Sultanate of Delhi conquered Bengal 1198-1202, and the new Islamic governor of Bengal was obsessed with conquering Tibet and controlling the lucrative TIbet-Indian trade, so he invaded Tibet (passing through the pr...

Re: Grass Tufts

I know nothing about their grass tufts, but I bought the Wizards Tower from Things from the Basement at Fall In and it is simply the coolest thing I've ever seen for crafting. I've got it completely put together and mostly painted as a cool 28mm Camp for Fantasy Triumph, and I'm probably going to ge...

Re: Armored vs unarmored Foot

Swiss are Elite Foot or Raiders; never Spear or Heavy Foot. In some rare cases armor is a marker, but not usually the cause of the distinction. Viking Huscarles are Elite Foot and would have much more mail than the rank-and-file Vikings -- but the mail is not WHY they are Elite Foot. Correlation is ...

Re: Early Russians

David, Sounds good the only other suggestion I might make is to look into an option for a stand or two of Bad Horse to represent the "Opolcheniye" which appears to have been not Druzhina, but mounted townspeople and farmers. I suspect these guys did not fight mounted though by choice and ...

Re: "Doubled" result

So you could say that any positive result doubles a 0 result and a 0 result doubles any negative result. Would that be correct? Sure, although then how do negative results compare to other different negative results? No matter what, it is a very rare occurrence. Which means it doesn't matter much h...

Early Polish at Leignitz, 1241 AD

Triggered by an email discussion over the last month and reading since, we're adding the following option to the Early Polish list reflecting the muster of a bunch of crap troops by subunits of Henry II the Pious for the battle of Leignitz, 1241 AD, against the Mongols: ⋅ 0-4x Horde (Consc...

Re: "Doubled" result

Geeze, I hate superspecial cases.

Ya, we should probably put some text in there to cover that (really rare) case.

Although we could just say "hey, if your modified roll is a 0, you're just DEAD DEAD DEAD." That would be amusing. :lol:

Re: Move distance in difficult terrain.

You're correct. Except for Warwagon and Artillery, who are foot but cannot move at all in difficult terrain. The main rules effect of difficult terrain on foot is to make it cost more command points to move them there (same as with mounted, of course) because group moves across difficult terrain cos...
