Between the 3 of them we can make almost any dark age army and a fair bunch of early through late medieval. I'll give you a call in the new yea...

Sorry Pippo, but I still see impact foot as having one blast to try & disorder troops then rushing into combnat, something a front rank of musket* does best. Problem is the Portuguese are not being classed Musket because they are impact foot who volley but rather because, and history collaborates t...

I got the mail with the list this morning. I like what I see from a historical perspective. Once I have play tested it a bit I will be able to comment more but I agree it is close to the final product if I go by appearances alone

I like the argument toward historical accuracy but really do not want to get involved in a debate that I think we always will have a slight bias either way with. I want to focus rather on the classification of Musket, Impact foot. Now I have yet to play FOG:R so I don't know the exact stats (hopeful...

Santa Hermandad Nueva Castilian

Hi there, the girlfriend is having a look at the army (guess who gets to paint it) and I was stumped when she asked if she should take the Armoured Offensive/Defensive Spear in 4's, The Crossbows in 4s and whether she should use any pike besides the Swiss. Now I usually play with Ottomans and Mongol...

Steppe in itself does not make an area viable to horses. But it nonetheless remains steppe. Zebras can survuve where horses cannot not because the region is steppe or not but because they do not die when bitten by Tsetse flies or similar parasites that domestic animals have lost their immunities to....

First off the markers are AWESOME :) Which would actually suit the Ottoman Turks best (Not too much knowledge about them other than their military)?. Also with regards to the steppe cultures maybe something similar to the writing system that Genghis is reputed to have developed. Just not too sure ho...
