Re: London

The British Museum has a superb collection of Assyrian wall carvings from Nineveh or Assur or other places, including scenes of camps, battles, and hunting lions from chariots. I love the London Museum also; it has a wonderful collection of Medieval stuff. Whenever I'm in Westminster Abbey I visit E...

Battle Mopeds is good -- but they look more like Big Wheels to me.

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 ca...

Re: Kurdish cavalry

Can we call them "elite Bad Horse" or better yet, "not so bad horse" We should do that just to tick off the players who didn't like the name Bad Horse! I suspect that the other WGC Grey Eminences would nix the plan of calling them Mediocre Horse, NotSoBad Horse, FairlyGoodHorse,...

Re: Kurdish cavalry

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? Budget Cataphracts, or Expensive Bad Horse. Same-same, more or less. If we are making them Budget Catap...

Re: Kurdish cavalry

Thinking out loud (this isn't doctrine by any means), maybe the solution is something like this: Rate them Javelin Cavalry; Give them a battle card that gives them +1 vs mounted, but takes away the Shatter result that Javelin Cavalry have on Knights and Cataphracts and Elephants. That makes them a +...

Re: Kurdish cavalry

The Kurdish cavalry are a tough case. They don't have bows, which eliminates Horsebow right away. And should eliminate Elite Cavalry, as you point out. If we do that the remaining choices are Knights, JavCav, and Bad Horse. They are too good for the latter, and not good enough for the former, so Jav...

Re: North-Western American 1100 AD to 1770 AD

Ah, very interesting! Looking forward to the list being ready. There are at least five NW American lists: ⋅ Northern Maritime Nations ⋅ Central and Southern Maritime Nations (perhaps going to be called California Maritime Nations, although they extend up into Oregon) ⋅ ...

Re: North-Western American 1100 AD to 1770 AD

What size battle (numbers of troops) is the right battle to picture when thinking army composition for a Tinglit army? It's hard for me to picture this above a skrimish level engagement. Same as the Vikings, more or less. The parallels to the Vikings are quite striking -- village sizes were similar...
