  • WWg are 3 pts now, not 4.
I note that the Meshwesh troop type page still has them as 4 pts.

Re: Oceanic lists

This seems to've been cleaned up, and the "Polynesian or Melanesian" list renamed to simply "Polynesian". It would perhaps be better as "Other Polynesian", to parallel the "Other Melanesian" list, and the better to alert people to the fact it doesn't cover all of Polynesia. The sum total, BTW, of my...

Re: Post Mongol Russian

Not the most academic of sources, but in English; Gorelik's Montvert Warriors of Eurasia says that Russian equipment didn't absorb much Mongol influence in the 14th century.

Re: Battle Card Summary of Cards is Up

(Supernumerary thought: Despite the name, whether battle card or proper troop-type, it might be considered for things like Arab "fencing lancers", who neither shoot, chuck, nor charge at the drop at the drop of a hat, but neither are particularly bad.) That's an interesting idea. The primary issue ...

Re: Battle Card Summary of Cards is Up

Nice :) Two thoughts: It would be nice if you from each battle card could see a list of the armies for which it applies. (I do realize this might be tricky from a programming standpoint, depending on how stuff's set up, and it's definitely a nice to have rather than a must have.) Sword-Fighting Cava...

Re: WOTR Pikemen and Scottish allies

There 's a theory that some or all Henry Tudor's French troops at Bosworth were pikemen - though Duncan Head has recently argued they were more likely archers and voulgiers (and so more-or-less tactically indistinguishable from the English infantry).

Re: Mounted Infantry

So, in the Later HYW English list, the "0-1" allowance for Mtd Inf for the billmen effectively overrides the 0-2 for the troop-type itself if you use it? You could have two stands of billmen on foot, but only one stand if mounted, correct? On the subject of Mtd Inf, if you dismount a column of such ...

Re: Battle Cards are on Meshwesh!

The Camel Protected Infantry card. Great addition. I wonder if the card should protect the infantry from the shattered result against mounted. The Vandals really had no idea how to deal with this tactic. Any other sources for this trick outside of Procopius? Neo-Assyrian reliefs show Arab archers s...
