Player Discussion / Xiongnu list

What do folks think of this list?  I'll not post any of my rationale for putting it together to leave all input open.  And welcome.

That aren't skirmishers I mean.  Anyone have any tips?

List Queries / Eastern Han volunteer army question
« on: June 14, 2019, 03:46:32 AM »

On the Eastern Han list, on the volunteer army page, it has listed that you can regrade troops as mixed 1/3 close fighters, 2/3 missile troops.  Then on the line for them it lists those as standing army close fighters and standing army crossbowmen.  There are already standing army troops on the previous page listed like that.  Should this say volunteer army close fighters and volunteer army crossbowmen?  If this is the case, should the close fighters only be taken from Ji?  The notes say that if you combine any foot this way you must combine all foot this way - that would imply that if you combine any then you can't use Mao or Yan close fighters.  Is that correct?

Player Discussion / using unprotected horse archers

Flexible cavalry, unprotected.  How do you make use of them?

I have them in the early Sassanid list.  When I get to byzantines, I will have Huns, who have the added value of being melee experts.


List Queries / Boukellarioi
« on: May 21, 2019, 10:36:37 PM »

A question, not a suggestion.

In the notes it says that the boukellarioi seem to have been equipped either with bows or spears depending on where they were recruited.  I don't know whether this is an old note that corresponded to an old list and is hence obsolete.  But should it be accompanied in the list with another category of boukellarioi who is superior drilled close but devastating chargers, or charging lancers, with no bow?

Player Discussion / mid republican romans with the new list
« on: May 04, 2019, 03:08:58 AM »
How are people building their mid republican romans with the constraints on triarii and light troops now relaxed?  Any sample lists people have used and are willing to share?

Player Discussion / representing Byzantine skutatoi?
« on: May 04, 2019, 03:06:59 AM »

How have folks gone about depicting Skutatoi?  Do you paint them as units of 4 stands, or 6 stands, or 8 stands?  I'm not talking about how you take them in the list, but how you represent units.  Aventine claims that the release of their early Byzantines is just around the corner, so I'm thinking about how to group them.

MeG USA / chicago area gamers?
« on: April 29, 2019, 09:02:41 PM »

Anyone here in Chicago interested in trying out MeG?  I posted on the old forum and didn't get any response.  I just realized (ahem) there is a new forum now so thought I'd try again.
