  • Feedback
    lump one type of weapon with another For instance a stirrup xbow of low draw weight would have about the same rate of fire If it is light enough say below 100 then the attribute is irrelevent If using the stirrup the archer does not risk being tired by the effort the way one does with a 70 long bow Size is less important When dealing with resupply however the real factor is the Archer s Paradox in order to shoot a bow accurately one needs an arrow specific to the draw of the archer When the string slaps the nock the arrow flexes If the spine is correct the arrow flexes around the bow spirals straightens out and hits the target While arrows are cheap the odds are that no one else uses quite the same arrow Too soft or too hard the arrow slapps the bow and bounced off in some direction being useiless When looking at Quarrals all they have to be is stiff enough to take the impact of the string Another consideration is with training It takes years to become proficent with the bow And constant practice to keep it up I can take anyone however and teach them to put the whole quiver of bolts into the chest of the target at 75 yards in a half hour It is easier to shoot a xbow than it is to shoot a gun This is due to the feedback of being able to see where the bolt goes A pistol just makes a little hole did I go on and on sorry Pet subject i have read a lot of your stuff over the years and always had a good time And I am sure you got edited sooooo much that things you wanted to

  • These were Henry's six Markgraviates and in this way he had militia captains ranked all round his borders, against the intrusive Sclavic element
    he could discover stationed on the Marck strenuously doing watch and ward there the post of difficulty of peril and naturally of honour too W hat interested me apart from Carlyle s obvious admiration of Henry was the effect he had on the Military forces under his command weaponshows and drill are kept up and Everywhere the ninth man is to serve as soldier in his Town other eight in the country are to feed and support him This is a man who made things happen militarily He didn t invent the Military system or greatly change it but he made it effective And that s my main point here In the days before truly Regular Armies backed by state arsenals and an effective beaurocracy barracks and printed drill books and all the other things that define a Regular the impact of a Leader on the Army he commanded was all the greater B y the middle of his reign his Army was constantly in service and composed of veterans of a series of successful campaigns This continued into the reign of his son Otto the Great And yet traditionally in Wargaming these men are regarded universally as Irregulars My argument is simply that these Milites Knechte or whatever you wish to call them are likely to have evinced far more the air and behaviour of Regulars than many automatically regarded as Regular because they are part of an Army we have come to think of as being a Regular Army For instance similar contemporary mounted troops of the Byzantine Army Thematic Kavallerioi are generally thought of as Regular despite being described in DBM Army Lists as part time territorial A good general like John Tzimisces might weld them into a formidable and biddable fighting force However under less inspirational leadership the day to day situation they were simply a herd like militia mob Whereas Henry s Milites yes the Wargames despised Bavarians too were a well disciplined higfhly effective Army D rill books which had to be hand written were never universally available and certainly were not standard issue They don t make a Regular Army Nor do uniforms particularly if rarely issued by a State whose beaurocracy has failed like the Later Roman Empire or Byzantine Empire Rhomanioi In the pre printing era periods of efficiency for an Army coincide with the rigorous enforcement of Standards not tokens like the fact that someone wrote a theoretical drill book And these periods are those of the dominance of key individual a General or King Emperor Seven hundred years after Henry the Fowler and John Tzimisces with three hundred years of printing to work with the French Army of Louis XV couldn t agree on a standard drill book never mind carry out consistent drill so how can we expect a Byzantine frontier force say in Italy to opperate in the way prescribed by Leo s Tactica N o Leo the Wise might well have ensured that his Tactica was
