Re: Bow Levy

Impressive! These armies are nicknamed 'cockroaches' over here. One of our club members specialises in winning DBM/LAdlaG competitions with them. I'll nudge him to give Triumph a go.

Re: Bow Levy

Some very good points there and I'll just come back on a few. 1. 'Trained' is perhaps the wrong word for me to use in this context. A better phrase might be 'learn to use'. Most archers would have learned to use the bow before joining up, for sure. I was seeking to differentiate Bow Levy, made up of...

These are both too small for a 144 point Grand Triumph game, so I've looked at how we can fit a 96 point game onto our '...
