Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Grenadines and Marinids are allowed one another as allies until 1339. This just misses what must be their most famous cooperation, in the battle of Salado in 1340. Relatedly, in the Later Almohades and Other Islamic Berber list, the Arab-Berber horsemen are restricted to the Almohads, but somewh...

Re: Meshwesh Keywords and Search Terms

Actually, it isn't very complicated. When the geo-political-chronological unit under discussion has a convenient specific label (like a single country name, or a rebellion or period of rulership dominated by a particular leader, or something like that) we try to use the specific label.

Re: Meshwesh Keywords and Search Terms

Re: Fantasy Triumph! Army Lists

Is there need for any? One of the attractions of HOTT has always been that you're free to build your army almost any which way.

Re: Plastic Soldier Company 15mm Plastic Ancients

More news from PSC. They have apparently licensed and will be reintroducing the much loved Corvus Belli ranges of 15mm ancients in both plastic and eventually metal according to their posting at TMP. If that includes the HYW English range, that's wonderful news! They're running an informal poll on ...

Re: Plastic Soldier Company 15mm Plastic Ancients

I gather the Goths, Huns, and Sassanids are plastic remakes of the Lurkio metal ranges.

Re: First Edition of the Printed Book

Brief historical introductions à la DBA 3e would be appreciated.

Some lists could really do with some explication what they're supposed to cover. Old Saxon, Frisian, etc. and Strathclyde etc. would be good examples - just who are the "etc."?

Re: First Edition of the Printed Book

He must be referring to something fan-made, perhaps the list of armies at Fanaticus.
