Late Roman Illyricani

Postby Phil the Goblin » Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:49 pm

Hi

Does anybody know if the Illyricani in the Late Roman Army List should be based as Skirmishing cavalry? Bit confused by the wording, which might suggest that only the Sagittarii can be Skirmishers!

Also... if I buy the Gripping Beast Dark Age Cavalry and give them Roman heads and shields, could they be fielded as Illyricani?

Thanks in anticipation...

Yes the list says the Illyricani are formed, evading cavalry and the Sagitarii may be skirmishers. You could indeed use the Dark Age cavalry as you suggest, you might want to replace the spears with javelins but it wouldn't matter too much.
