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) Coast Range Nations Columbia Basin ...

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...

Vic, awesome picture/logo.

Some bow levy, but lots of other stuff. The guys in wooden helmets and armor are particularly cool. There are some light spear, a bunch of other things.

Re: Cavalry "Shower Shooting"

So did you get what you need from Duncan Head? So no need to look more for this? Duncan gave me some useful information that allowed me to proceed. So yes, I "got what I needed". But "no need to look more for this" doesn't follow, because I'm extrapolating based upon a very small number of data poi...

Re: Cavalry "Shower Shooting"

With Duncan Head's help I've got reasonable estimates of the spread of the Shower Shooting technique, and where it was not used (although that almost exclusively by inference, I'm still happy enough with it). Except no information at all on Asian armies, many of whom have Elite Cavalry. Mostly Stepp...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

I think the compositions of the Hawaii and Polynesian or Melanesian lists in Meshwesh are erroneously exchanged. The Polynesian and Melanesian list includes regular pikemen (which as far as I know were exclusive of Hawaii) which are further referred to as Papakaua (a Hawaiian term if I'm not mistak...
