MFP Nomad generals

The Nomadic Raider MFP Meso-American list has the general specified as "If Present: Light Foot, Otherwise: Rabble". Neither Light Foot nor Rabble are (otherwise) compulsory, so does this mean one has to take at least one of the types anyway, or can one have a Skirmisher general in an all-Skirmisher ...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Speaking of Khitan Knights, the Jurchen Jin Rebellion list have Khitan heavy horse as Knights or Elite Cav. Seeing they don't get a Knights option in their own list, I've got a hard time seeing why they should here. In the Later Jurchen Jin list, you've got "Superior Jurchen Horsemen" as Elite Cav o...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Both Khitan-Liao lists have the general's troop type listed as Knights, but the lists don't contain any. It should say Elite Cav instead.

Re: Cañari

You won't find the list if you go to the trouble of entering the tilde when searching. Sounds like a job for a keyword.

Re: Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms

Now reading about the Shatuo Chinese Dynasties, I'm wondering if the Northern Han ought to be considered as a Shatuo Chinese Dynasty rather than a Northern Five Dynasties -- the difference is primarily whether it (N.Han) is a Shatuo Chinese Dynasty army (Elite Cav, Horsebow, with lots of Northern C...

Re: German tribes

Frisians were the Frisii. That may not be the case: Frisia appears to have been largely abandoned during late Antiquity, and the people who eventually resettled it needn't have been descendants of the original inhabitants. To quote the WP page on the Frisii: The lands of the Frisii were largely aba...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The "Hallstat and La Tene" list should be "Hallstatt and ..." with a double 't'.

Re: Sea Peoples Start Date

Doing some further readings on the Sherden, I found this paper which may be of some interest: Jeffrey P. Emanuel, Sherden from the Sea Regarding the Peleset, the situation is I think not quite so dire as you make out: the strong Aegean/Helladic/Mycenaean influence in Philistine material culture sure...
