Anglo Danish list for comment

Postby Bob Stradling » Tue Dec 06, 2016 8:46 pm

Army Anglo Danish
A C Pts No Points
King or Eorl +2 9 0 1 0
Noble +2 +2 20 5 100


Infantry => 50% 75.8%
D C Pts Bases Points Equipment and rule
Huscarls 5 7 29 3 87 LA, Shield, Shieldwall, DHA, Javs, Vet, Riding Horses, Superior
Fyrd 6 5 13 3 39 Spear, Shield, Shield wall, Riding Horses
126
There would be six units like this for a total of 756 pts


Special Troops <= 25% 14.2%
D C Pts Bases Points Equipment and rule
Vikings 5 7 17 6 102 LA, Shield, Shieldwall, Open order, Superior Fighter

D C Pts Bases Points Equipment and rule
Ceorls 1 - 5 4 3 12 Skirmishers, Inferior Fighters, Javs

D C Pts Bases Points Equipment and rule
Ceorls 2 - 5 4 3 12 Skirmishers, Inferior Fighters, Slings

D C Pts Bases Points Equipment and rule
Ceorls 3 - 5 4 4 16 Skirmishers, Inferior Fighters, Bows

Total 998

I could drop riding horses from 2 or 3 of the Huscarl units to save some points, which could be used to bolster the Ceorls.

I have also considered Throwing Spears rather than Double Handed Axes, but think against knights that I would be better with the DHA whilst standing in shieldwall. If most of my opponents at D6 or D5 then the throwing spear is statistically better. Just think there is a psychological impact of DHA especially as they don't go last anymore.

Bob,

Don't want to face those units in combat - they are nasty.

I guess though at 6 bases they are fairly small and could be prone to missile fire of decent sides bow units...

I would be tempted to take open order Viking special troops to give you some harder hitting fast moving troops in place of one or two Huscarls/Fyrd.



Regards
Andy

A hard list Bob that fits the profile of your Spartans/Saxons and should suit your style of play.
I think units of 6 bases are fine, especially with shieldwall.
Let me know if you fancy a game anytime.
Cheers W.
