Re: SIGNUP for Chariot Supremacy! Campaign Theme (Cold Wars: March 2018)

I can put together Kassite or early Aramaean but, using Essex LPIA stand ins ....if you think that would work. That's perfectly acceptable, Spencer. Go for Aramaean, if you would -- I've got a Midianite loaner, and it's better to delete a zone on the outside rather than on the inside, especially wi...

Re: East and Ottonian Frankish milites

I'd simply combine the lines, so the Ottonians get 6-12 Milites as "Knights or Javelin Cavalry", leaving the player free to choose what proportion of northerns and southerners they want. Then you have a note saying that the Knights represent hard-charging northerners and the Jav Cav more ...

Re: Meshwesh Update--December 2017

That would be helpful, once no more changes in points value were expected. We're processing the final rules version now; there are no changes in points values for any stand types. In the plans for Meshwesh (after the rules are finalized) is an online worksheet for making up armies; the points for e...

Re: East and Ottonian Frankish milites

The East and Ottonian Frankish lists both have minima for both "milites" as Knights and "Swabian or Bavarian milites" as Jav Cav. Presumably, the idea is that the hard charging ones are Franconians, Lotharingians or Saxons. Now what's historically dubious is that every army woul...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Medieval Swedish list has the general listed as Bad Horse or Heavy Foot, but the list has no Heavy Foot. It's probably meant to be Bad Horse or Elite Foot. I'll glance at this, but I think we noticed that and fixed it when we went through the most recent update (fixing up the priorities for gen...

Re: Skirmishers shattering Elephants

While I ungrudgingly acknowledge his success, I nevertheless wonder why skirmishers get a +2 in close combat vs. Elephants, while Light Foot and Raiders do not. Can you help me understand the idea behind this design, please? Maerk, perhaps you're fixating on the modifier, not on the interaction as ...

Re: Skirmishers shattering Elephants

(...) training specifically in skirmishing (duh). So LtFt/Raiders are fighting in their ranks and do not have any skirmishing abilities? We classify stands into buckets. Everything must go into a bucket; nothing can go into two buckets. We turn the infinitely varied and complex historical world (ab...
