Re: Kurdish cavalry

I was just about to suggest Not So Bad Horse myself. Great minds, fools, etc. But if the effect is just +1 CF, there seems no intrinsic reason to limit the card to just Bad Horse: you might one day decide some army needs killer Bow Levy or something, and then you could just apply the same battle car...

Re: Kurdish cavalry

There's a lot of Bedouin Jav Cav in their temporal and spatial vicinity.

Maybe they could be budget Cataphracts? They lack the complete armour, but they're CC-oriented cavalry who, AFAIK, weren't noted for charging like Franks. -1 pt, -1 CF? Do they need to be faster?

Kurdish cavalry

I noted with some surprise that Kurdish cavalry (in at least the Dynastic Kurdish and Khwarizmian lists) are classed as Elite cavalry. My impression - which is based wholly on wargaming materials in this case - was that they were Arab-style lancers and swordsmen, lacking or at least not emphasizing ...

Re: Cavalry "Shower Shooting"

Shower-shooting at Dazimon is used to justify the classification of Abbasid ghilman in the DBMM list notes: you could try throwing Duncan an e-mail and see if he recalls where it comes from.

Re: Cavalry "Shower Shooting"

Abbasid ghilman are supposed to have used shower shooting in the battle of Dazimon (aka the battle of Anzen) 838, but I'm unsure what the source for this is: Tabari has little detail and what he does have sounds more like close combat ("their [sc. the Abbasids'] cavalry returned and engaged us ...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Gepids (both versions) have Ostrogothic allies from the "Ostrogoths 376 AD" list, but there appears to be something wrong with that list: in the Gepid list it says "No troop options entered" for the ally option, and if I click on the link to the main list I get errors like &q...

The Early Abassid list is still spelt thus.

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Sassanids again: The Early list has "Asavran catafractarii" and "Asarvan clibinarii"; the adjective should in each case be "Asvaran", as in the Middle list. (Modern Persian apparently has metathesized savaran "horsemen", at which point the IE roots get a littl...
