Re: Ancient Germanic reading recommendations

Hmm, interesting. Here's a link to what I posted in that thread: http://toofatlardies.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=11782&sid=3dd59505332ce461ee2a58d3baca20d9&start=150#p79740 It would certainly make an added visual and tactical element to a Germanic force in the game (if historically demonstrabl...
