Arab Caliphate - Dismounted Ghulams

Postby Davidh » Sat Feb 13, 2021 5:54 pm

Hi Martin

I am putting together an Arab Caliphate army list (P.24-25) and have a question about Turkish Ghulams.

Aside from an option to have barding, mounted Ghulams can have a spear (+1) and Heavy Armour (+1). However, the list doesn't give Dismounted Ghulams the heavy armour or spear options and I wondered if it should?

If Dismounted Ghulams (cost 22 points per base) are not allowed the option to take spears, would they then not have a named melee weapon and would they become Inferior Fighters in a melee?

Yes they should have both options, the spear is free for infantry.

Oh and of course the Heavy Armour is +2.

Thank you Martin.

Could that be added to the Dark Age Errata?
