Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Perhaps not an error, exactly, but the Scandinavian Leidang list calls the rank and file Bondi . This is, I realize wargamer tradition, but in Old Norse it's a singular word (meaning "farmer, yeoman; husband") - the plural form is bœndr (or boendr with the ligature expanded). Using the sin...

Re: 15mm Khurasan Jurchen Jin

In origin, they were a forest people - it may be more helpful to think of them as "Siberian" rather than "steppe" - making a mixed living from hunting, fishing, animal husbandry, and low-intensity agriculture. They presumably found adopting a Sinicized lifestyle a lesser step tha...

Re: New Shooting Rules

One tidbit that came up: apparently at Formigny, English longbowmen preferred to charge, capture, and try to drag away French guns over simply shooting the gunners. While this doesn't directly tell us how effective the latter tactic should be, it does suggest that moving into close combat with Artil...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Your explanation is clear enough, but, as you say, hard to infer from Meshwesh itself. Not sure how to better communicate it there, short of a note saying something to the effect of "These are Type III allies, which means you don't get a full Polish army in Grand Triumph!".

Re: Panic move and difficult terrain

What if meets the wooded hill after 4 MU? If reduced to just 3 MU it wouldn't reach the slowing terrain so should move 8 MU so it does reach the slowing terrain ...

The sensible solution is that it stops at the edge of the terrain, but do the rules actually come out and state this somewhere?

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Polish allies for Hussites say "Full Army List: not available". Presumably this should be "Later Polish"?

Re: New Shooting Rules

Returning to Archers v. Artillery, nobody has thought of a good historical example yet. A good point that was raised is that 15-16C artillery was often put behind field fortifications. While in many cases this clearly wasn't primarily intended to protect against enemy foot archers (think of Caldiran...

Thanks for the reply 8-)

I'll ask some sages of my acquaintance if they can think of any examples pertinent to Archers v. Artillery.

Re: New Shooting Rules

We play tested 100 years war three archers firing on one knight does not work as well as spreading out your archers to make sure all three get shots. With the new system you actively want to spread out your shots, because then you have a slim chance to destroy all targets. A presentation suggestion...
