Re: German Late War Lists

I do agree. They cost almost bugger all to buy but hundreds of pounds to amass the research material to produce. If people are "generally interested" they can do me the the courtesy of a price if a pint.

So yes, to be quite clear; there is an IP issue.

Um, late to the party on this, but that is fine to use our logos to support anything like that.

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE - INFAMY! INFAMY!

Actually, no dog poo here. We have taken the line from Josephus which sees leaders slip over due to hobnails. It's history all the way here.

Although clearly Asterix is a true story.

Re: Gembloux Gap on Lard TV

God forbid we have any adverts. YouTube offered us the option of 'monetarising' our content with adverts, but we refused. Whilst I support a number of Patreon channels, I don't want that for us. Although it can be limiting. The Battlefield challenge cost about a grand to make which is a big commitme...

Re: Infamy: centurions and standards

The decanus seems to be a significantly later role, emerging around the 3rd or even 4th century AD. I'm totally unconvinced about Goldsworthy's view of the Immunes; he seems t be attempting to impose a modern command structure onto an ancient army. Personally I see personal acts by key leaders, at t...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE - INFAMY! INFAMY!

I'm not convinced that war dogs ever existed anywhere. They are fine for chasing down fugitives, but really they'd be sod all use against drilled troops with pointy spears and shields. Great for deployment point markers though. A local with a couple of old dogs in the woods. Sounds like my village.....

Re: Infamy: centurions and standards

I'm not yet convinced about the Tesserarius acting as a Leader in battle. I'm also pretty certain that a Contubernium had an NCO in the context that we would think of today. I know that Goldsworthy is big on this but I am minded on the German military up to 1914, where the Corporal's only duties wer...
