Ghurid infantry

The Ghurid "line" infantry are classed as Light Spear, indeed they're one of the exemplars of the type on the Meshwesh troop types page. Where does this come from? When they were discussed for the DBMM lists, the only description anyone found of them was Juzjani's, which notes them as usin...

Re: Proposed 15mm Sumerian Range (by Eureka)

Is, BTW, Chariots the appropriate classification for Sumerian battle-carts? The troop definitions suggest that javelin-chucking chariots should be Battle Taxis.

(I'm incidentally somewhat puzzled that javelins should make you BT but a lance make you Ch: Surely the latter is even more short-ranged.)

Re: Khurasan 15mm West Sudanese Range

The only DBX list for the region between Kanem-Bornu and Nubia is the DBR list for "Funj Empire" (also known as the Sultanate of Sennar). Right, that starts at 1502, outside the Triumph timeframe. (Date based on Wikipedia -- no idea what the DBR list looks like, as I don't have that) FWIW...

Re: Khurasan 15mm West Sudanese Range

IIRC, Kanem/Bornu is where the Cataphracts are used I'm not sure about the Triumph! time-frame, but in latter times "cataphracts" were used across the entire central and eastern Sahel from Sokoto to Ethiopia. The DBMM list notes for "Western Sudanese" suggest it covers the entir...

Re: Optional general's type again

Thanks for the reply.

For the climate type, might "Riverine" be an option?

Optional general's type again

I was looking at the Melukhkhan and Pre-Vedic Indian list, which "General's Troop Type: Light Spear", "Spearmen: Light Spear or Heavy Foot: 1-8", and no other troops that can be Light Spear. Do I understand correctly that this means that if I take at least one element of spearmen...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Scots Isles and Highlands have two allied contingents designated as "Orkney or Manx Vikings". Given their contents and the lists they're drawn from I imagine the first should be "Orkney Vikings" and the second "Manx Vikings".

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Early Medes list has "Mannian" allies. Those should be Mannaian.
