Wars of the Roses Troop Types Question

Post by coopman » Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:01 am

I'm a little confused as to what some historical troop types would be considered in TRIUMPH.

If we say that the dismounted knights are "elite foot", what would the retinue billmen be classed as, perhaps "heavy foot"? However, I don't see any heavy foot in the WOTR army lists. And what would shire levy billmen be considered in the rules? In many cases these billmen were not all that heavily armored, having only padded jacks for protection.

I believe that retinue longbow would be "archers" and shire longbow would be "bow levy".

Scurrours would be javelin cav or bad horse, I believe.

I see a number of "light spear" units in the WOTR army lists - what do they represent?
