Combined Units

Hi, Sirs:

I´m a full dummy in this ruleset, just brought for me by a friend from Salute, but after a first test game, we will leave WAB to play Swordpoint!
One question: I´m collecting an Anglo Danish army: can I purchase some bases of Huscarls armed with 2handed axes and other with spears and form all of them in a unit with some bases of Fyrd?

Thank you!

Hi Theophanes - the Anglo Danes can combine Huscarls and Fyrd to form combined units. 50%-67% (half to two thirds) must be Fyrd. Cheers W.

thank you, but can you mix Huscarls with 2handed axes and some bases with spears in the same unit?

So long as you can tell which bases are which, I have no problem with you doing that. This is a specific response affecting only this list, not a general rule.

Oh! That will help when I am designing a list to know that I don't have to equip the whole unit of Huscarls in the same way. A couple of points here, a couple of points there.

What about Hirdmen units? .....eerrrrrr pop slither as the lid comes off a can of worms...

I would be prepared to allow it for Hird as well. The point is the troops historically would have carried a right old mix of weapons, the figures are easy to distinguish, and only the front row of bases are affected. I would not entertain it for different shield types, or mixing throwing spears with other types and so on.
