Byzantine List Overlap

Postby Bill Hupp » Mon Nov 20, 2017 2:57 pm

I am going through and organizing my Byzantines for Triumph! and noticed the following year overlap on the Byzantine lists. I'm not sure if this is intended because of Manzikert in some way, but thought I would point it out.

Konstantinian Byzantine 1042 to 1073 AD
Komnenan Byzantine 1071 to 1142 AD

The Byzantines are an extremely confusing bunch of lists but they are very useful armies, with lots of historical battles to fight.

After them I am tackiling their enemies, which will be even worse.

You may also want to include Byzantine in the Justinian Decline list name as it was hard to find.

It is already in the "expanded search terms" so search on Byzantine will bring it up. As soon as the expanded search term algorithm is implemented, that is.

It is deliberate; the situation after Manzikert was unsettled and there were many hands on the reins. It isn't clear how quickly the post-Manzikert changes were adopted.

Thanks. FYI, the Warhammer Historical Byzantium book by Heine Baekkelund is proving a useful tool. Likely out of print but folks might see it at a flea makret table.
