Early Polish at Leignitz, 1241 AD

Triggered by an email discussion over the last month and reading since, we're adding the following option to the Early Polish list reflecting the muster of a bunch of crap troops by subunits of Henry II the Pious for the battle of Leignitz, 1241 AD, against the Mongols:
  • 0-4x Horde (Conscripts, Moravians, and volunteer Bavarian miners armed with the tools of their trade)
Time-limited to 1241 AD only (the battle of Leignitz).

This represents the large number of untrained and poorly trained men in Henry's army from several sources -- the army of Mieszko the Fat from Opole; some Bavarians under Boleslav of Moravia; Polish conscripts; and volunteer miners from Bavaria who seem to have just been equipped with picks and hammers and stuff.
