Re: My Viking Army

Yes they are likely to show up at Warfare. I think there are 4 berserkers in the mix.

Re: Swindon Event February 2019

Think its either 7 or 8-not in work so can't check. I know of another who will be coming, others said they would but haven't booked yet. If they don't, then it won't be chariots!

Re: War of eth Roses - Men at Arms and Retinue archers

The somewhat flippant answer to the first question is that the lists were originally written by a Frenchman. You can upgrade one unit to Household as per the mounted version. Yes the Welsh should be spearmen not billmen.

Re: Lancastrians

Mixed units look right but crossbows don't. You can't use stakes in a mixed unit. Unit composition is a personal thing, try it both ways and see which you prefer. More captains equals more dice, but if your key combat units have them you can get away with the rest. Artillery can be useful, especiall...

Re: Medievla English/WOtr figures

If you are a purist, then probably no, but in reality no one is going to worry too much. Only the knights are likely to be in totally incorrect gear, though the retinue archers will also be anachronistic.

Re: Carthaginian use pf Horse Armour

Some South Italian cavalry may have used partial horse armour, so it would be okay for these and for generals in that theatre in modelling terms, but we did not consider it sufficiently widespread to allow it to affect Defence values.

Re: Dark Age Britain "Irish and Scots"

If you are playing in period you won't face too much shooting, so four units of 7/8 bases is more flexible and useful than 3 of 9/10.

Re: Later Carthaginian

Yes you basically get one of those forces with Punic cavalry, African spearmen and Carthaginian commanders.

Re: CHARIOTS: is 1 (excess) kill discarded or not at the end of each Phase?

Only elephants "collect" unsaved hits, chariots are treated just like infantry or cavalry.
