Abbassid list

Postby Kester » Wed Jul 19, 2017 6:55 pm

Hi all,
I'm still planning to get a force at some point and I've now moved my thinking from picts to abbasids. I've done a lot of WW2 stuff recently so I'm thinking with abbasids I'll be able to move away from the browns & greens and add a little bit of uniform and different colours to the force.

Anyway here is what I've got so far. Please let me know what you think!
I'm hoping its going to have plenty of shooty shooty power!

592 4 units of 6 arab infantry, 1/2 with spear, large shield & light armour, 1/2 with bow & light armour = (18x3 + 16x3)x4
472 2 units of 6 militia = (10x6)x2
392 4 sheikh = 20x4
284 1 unit of 6 tribal cavalry with bows = 18x6
54 2 unit of 5 ghulams with spear, heavy armour, and barding = (23x5)x2
4 caliph = 50

Looks like an interesting list, perhaps a bit too reliant on shooting? You have a solid infantry line and some good cavalry, but no real punch once the enemy is weakened by your arrows. Perhaps bring in a religious Volunteer warband? Or a unit of Armenian Ghulams? Or even-if you want exotic- an allied Tibetan cavalry unit?
