Re: Polybian Roman

Hadn't searched on Javelin Cavalry Battleline Generals. A casual search seems to indicate that there are 176 army lists with the option of Javelin Cavalry generals; not so easy to break that down into army lists where the Javelin Cavalry are deployed usually in the center, rather than on the flanks....

Re: Big battle rules

Hi there! Yes, Big Battle is one of our favorites as well, and we think that Triumph has great potential in that area. The "Big Battle" rules are intended as a bigger version of the base game -- for larger still games the best system seems to be to have more or less normal-sized commands and a diffe...

Re: Tibetan

I was reading some 16th C. Bhutanese sources and wondering about the Tibetans, thinking where are all the cataphrachts? So there does seem to be a bit of a lacuna in my knowledge, but apologies for not being able to offer much in the way of suggestions. PS: One random thought would be that combat i...

Re: Normans

Normans look like this: 0-2x Bow Levy (bowmen) 0-1x Archer or Skirmisher (crossbowmen or staff slingers) That isn't going to use all your huge wad of figs, but what that means is that you can base up 2 stands of Bow Levy with your bowmen, 1 stand of Archers (4 figs) with your crossbowmen, and one st...

Re: Tibetan

It seems that the "Era of Fragmentation" runs from the fall of the Tibetan Empire in civil war (840s) to mid 11th century. I haven't found anything yet regarding the period from the mid 11th century to the period of Yuan rule (which covers the invasion mentioned earlier). Some minor kingdoms of Tibe...

Re: Tibetan

Been reading about "Era of Fragmentation " Tibet. It seems that the Islamic Sultanate of Delhi conquered Bengal 1198-1202, and the new Islamic governor of Bengal was obsessed with conquering Tibet and controlling the lucrative TIbet-Indian trade, so he invaded Tibet (passing through the probably-Hin...

Re: Grass Tufts

I know nothing about their grass tufts, but I bought the Wizards Tower from Things from the Basement at Fall In and it is simply the coolest thing I've ever seen for crafting. I've got it completely put together and mostly painted as a cool 28mm Camp for Fantasy Triumph, and I'm probably going to ge...

Re: Armored vs unarmored Foot

Swiss are Elite Foot or Raiders; never Spear or Heavy Foot. In some rare cases armor is a marker, but not usually the cause of the distinction. Viking Huscarles are Elite Foot and would have much more mail than the rank-and-file Vikings -- but the mail is not WHY they are Elite Foot. Correlation is ...

Re: Early Russians

David, Sounds good the only other suggestion I might make is to look into an option for a stand or two of Bad Horse to represent the "Opolcheniye" which appears to have been not Druzhina, but mounted townspeople and farmers. I suspect these guys did not fight mounted though by choice and probably d...

Re: "Doubled" result

So you could say that any positive result doubles a 0 result and a 0 result doubles any negative result. Would that be correct? Sure, although then how do negative results compare to other different negative results? No matter what, it is a very rare occurrence. Which means it doesn't matter much h...
