Re: Nordic Bronze Age Army List?

Lastly, an appeal to the gamer's sense of utility and appreciation of "cool-looking" figures....I contend a historical purpose must be found for these 15mm figures by Mark Copplestone: https://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk/list.php?cat=18&sub=68&page=1 I saw a DBMM Early Northern Barbarian, Europea...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Early Egyptian list has a line with skirmishers defined as "Javelinmen paired with quiver-carriers", which sounds more like Light Foot. The Franco-Scottish list has "Voulgier", should be pl "Voulgiers". Not an error, I guess, but the name "Later Sicilio-Norman" is passing strange - there's littl...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The St. George's Night Uprising list has Swedish allies drawn from the Prussian list: I assume this is an error of some kind. In the Yuan lists, "Mengkuchun" are still mentioned in the description for the Horse Bow or Bad Horse line. They should be "Menggu jun (Mongol army)" like in other lines. Als...

Re: Late Teutonic Order

What I really need is some descriptions of battle interactions between these dudes and other cavalry who I know the ratings for (Horsebow, Knights, Elite Cavalry). In English, sadly. Such seem to be in short supply in any language, unfortunately. Frankly, I've not actually even seen clear evidence ...

Re: Late Teutonic Order

I think it would make a lot of sense to class the Order's mounted crossbowmen and czeladz the same, irrespective of which specific type is decided on.

Re: Late Teutonic Order

Right now I'm reading Alexander Querengässer's Der Deutsche Orden im Dreizehnjährigen Krieg 1454-1466 . For the Bohemians there's a good deal of info in Uwe Tresp's Söldner aus Böhmen . In English, there's a chapter on the 13YW in William Urban's The Last Years of the Teutonic Knights , though he's ...

Late Teutonic Order

I've been reading about the Thirteen Years' War (1454-1466), and reflecting that existing army lists tend to treat the period poorly* - mostly they just extend lists based on the 13th and 14th centuries well beyond the period when Teutonic armies actually looked like that. So I thought I'd give a wh...

Re: Army List: Early Atropatene

I have nothing to add regarding the composition of Atropatenean armies, but the mention of them got me to notice the Atropatene/Elymais/Persis list is included in the "India and the Khyber Pass" thematic category, which seems like an error. (BTW, Azerbaijan is Atropatene, in the sense that both go b...

  • 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...
