Put me down for the April 14th, June 9th and September 8th events, please; the other two are no-gos due to date clashes. Will need to borrow an army for the June event (preference Hindu Indian).

Yes there will, and not many superiors. Lots of MOB and Poor troops are a possibility.

Never mind “silly”, the most important question is whether it’s a particularly big army Don?
