Lullubi - Figures To Use For Them

For one of the Ultimate Wall O' Crap armies, the Lullubi (Zagros Highlanders) - what 15mm figures to use? First up is the pair of variants from Essex. I really like these, but unfortunately Essex have confused the Lullubi with the penis-sheath wearing early Libyans. Easy enough to fix with a bit of ...

Re: Bow Levy - what to do with them?

Classic! You may claim the title of Best Wall O' Crap Army with that lot - they sound marginally worse than the Lullubi (who I can't help pronouncing as 'lullaby'). You know you're on a winner when Bow Levy are your elite troops!!!!! I shall start a thread on the Lullubi for the gathering of best 15...

Re: Bow Levy - what to do with them?

Yup, agreed. Categorizing so many variations is a pretty thankless task. And you've done a very good job with these extra delineations. Amusingly I seem to have just fallen victim to my use of the Lullubi as an example to illustrate my previous point - I'm now seriously considering building an army ...

Re: Bow Levy - what to do with them?

Fair enough. Although, ironically, Lullubi Rabble are the same naked dudes as the Bow Levy, except they have a pointy stick instead of a bow and quiver of arrows. Not sure that would fill me with much more confidence to be honest! ;) Perhaps, going more by your philosophy, the Bow Levy are the weedi...

Re: Bow Levy - what to do with them?

Interesting thoughts on the Bow Levy - I'm nearly sold. :) Re their slow movement, good point there. Take Zagros Highlanders for instance (e.g. Lullubi): Rabble and Bow Levy, basically identical apart from carrying a bow and quiver instead of a spear, you'd think they'd move at the same rate. Are th...

Re: Bow Levy - what to do with them?

Re using 2-4 Bow Levy against flanking moves by enemy mounted - I imagine this works best with the standard 2ft table depth. i.e. on a 3ft deep table it might be more difficult to achieve, unless setting up very defensively overall. (I'd been considering playing on a 3ft square table because I have ...

Bow Levy - what to do with them?

Having just received my pdf of the rules, the first thing that struck me like a rock to the face was the non-ranged missile fire for Bow Levy. Coming from a DBx background, this made me do a double-take and a re-read of the relevant section until it became clear I had not misread the rules. The desi...

Re: Middle Assyrian

Already in process -- I added a whole bunch of keywords to the army lists, so now "Anglo-Norman" will return a hit when you search for "English", and Attila comes up when you search for "Hun" and so on. That was a week or two ago, while trying to avoid grading for the end of the semester; it should...
