Re: First Edition of the Printed Book

This might something were a poll (probably better on the FB page than here) could give some useful input. I don't expect I'd buy a set of printed lists myself - certainly not at $300 - and about the only advantage to them I see is guaranteed availability if WGC goes belly up and Meshwesh goes defunc...

Re: Camels

In another context Ibn Iyas does however describe camels with some sort of "arrangement for musketeers to shoot from" on their backs. Now whether this describes Moghul-style camel artillery, or just some sort of special saddle for mounted handgunners, I'm not sure - and neither was David Ayalon, who...

Re: Camels

When writing the above, I hadn't noted that the DBR lists also allow camel-guns to Mamluk Egyptians in 1517, saying they were used at the battle of Raydaniyah (aka Ridaniye, and sundry other variants). However, Phil seems have to changed his mind about this, because the overlapping DBMM list doesn't...

Re: Meshwesh Keywords and Search Terms

The Medieval Danish and Union of Kalmar, Viking, and Viking Raider lists ought have the "Scandinavian" keyword.

Re: Fantasy Triumph (Monsterpocalypse) at Fall In 2019

Do really artillery deserve to be "missile-equipped" for the purposes of annoying fliers? A trebuchet or medieval cannon would seem extremely ill-suited to targeting any flier more mobile than an anchored observation balloon. (Fantastic artillery could be more suited for aiming at moving targets of ...

Re: Medieval French

In their most famous outing at Crécy 1346, the Genoese crossbowmen fought without their pavises. But anyway, perhaps somewhat counterintuitively, having a pavise isn't sufficient for classification as Pavisiers - you're also supposed to have (a) front rank(s) with close combat weapons likes spears o...

Re: Rhoxolani cavalry

Is there, incidentally, any reason to associate the Solokha tomb with the Rhoxolani specifically? I note WP identifies it as "Scythian".

Rhoxolani cavalry

I was of the impression (based on e.g., Duncan's AMPW) that prior to adopting Standard Sarmatian™ lancer tactics, the Rhoxolani were more-or-less standard steppe horse archers, so I was surprised to note the Meshwesh list has them as mostly Jav Cav. What's the basis for this?

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The dates are wonky for the "Early Kassites or Nairi 1649-950 BC, or Hurrians 1779-950 BC 1749 to 950 BC" list - clearly if the Hurrian sub-list begins in 1779 the whole can't begin in 1749.
