Re: Battle Cards are on Meshwesh!

I like the reappearance of the Support card. Well documented historically. The Camel Protected Infantry card. Great addition. I wonder if the card should protect the infantry from the shattered result against mounted. The Vandals really had no idea how to deal with this tactic. Any other sources for...

Re: Nikephorian Byzantine Cataphracts

Writing from work. Haldon is actually at Princeton now, but has not responded to my initial query. Of interest is that for the Imperial Tagmata, the term Kataphractoi is used capatilized in Leo. But the significance of the capitalization could be debated. One of D'Amoto's book, or the Belezos, notes...

Re: Nikephorian Byzantine Cataphracts

Belezos, in his text Byzantines Armies: 325-1435 AD notes that the 'Tagmta,' created during the reign of Constantine V 741-775 AD mainly consisted of four units of cavalry, The Scholae, Arithmoi, Excuibitors and Hikanatoi, meaning 'Worthies. (p 92.). He suggests that all of these regiments had barde...

Nikephorian Byzantine Cataphracts

Current list allows for 1 Cataphract. John Haldon's book 'The Byzantine Wars, Tempus Publishing 2000, describes the battle(s) of/at Dorostolon in 971. He states that Cataphract cavalry were deployed as the reserve on both wings. These reserves were committed after a long day of battle and broke the ...

Re: GM's need for Fall In! 2019

No problem, "Late is the hour." I hadn't seen any posted responses so I thought I'd offer to pitch in. Look forward to playing.

Re: GM's need for Fall In! 2019

I can do Friday or Saturday any time for the event. I'll be up Thursday night as well if you want to post something under my name. How about armies and enemies of Arthur in England.

Re: GM's need for Fall In! 2019

I will do a duplicate 5 Byzantine Battles. Sorry for the late communication. May not be up to the standard I would like; but I have all the armies. Might need to borrow some terrain mats. No problem if you are already filled up. I am praying that my new job offer comes through. It would give me a 3 ...

Re: TRIUMPH! Events at Historicon 2019!

I have Assyrians. Give me an email. Might you be able to swing by and pick them up? I actually think I have every army for your event.

Re: Bronze Age European Barbarians Proposed New Range

Falcon USA is not showing up at conventions. Kai Weaver was ill. Many posts on theminiaturespage.com indicate difficulty in getting orders acknowledged or filled. It is a shame that the molds are not in more reliable hands. Paradoxically, painted Falcon armies show up regularly on ebay painted by Ab...

Bronze Age European Barbarians Proposed New Range

A surprisingly strong army in the Chariot Supremacy period. Would anyone buy these if I commission the range from a designer known to do this kind of thing? They could probably also be used as Sea Peoples, early Bronze age Greeks, maybe Dorians; and maybe Trojan/Hittites. See the 28mm heads set from...
