Coupel of points of clarification:

1) Bondi in the viking list have: Handweapon, spear and shield listed for their equipment. They may swap spear and shield for bow, presumably keeping the handweapon. As they have a named 'handweapon' I presume this does not make them inferior fighters.

2) Where a troop type such as bondir can chose to swap equipment say from spear and shield to bow or xbow it seems a little odd that one unit of the same sort is an ordinary fighter and the other an inferior fighter, just want to check that this is the case.

1) "Handweapon" is a typo.
2) Ah but those with bows haven't "swapped" anything, they only trained with bows.

Thanks Martin, I wondered whether handweapon was a typo from a ruleset that must not be named. Happy with the logic for 2.

Similar question regarding the Seleucid Levy Archers. They have hand weapon so do they hit on a 4 as normal?

Any reference to "Handweapon" is a typo. Cheers W.
