All this means a rather boring game and kinda boring to look at.
So that means we need to spice things up, so we take out the spice weasel and BAM! I'm gonna add some figures from the HYW, so I get more mail clad soldiers and soldiers with swords and shields, that way I get a medium armord type soldier, I'll add crowbowmen, that aperantly was not much used in the real WOTR.
But that still leaves one problem, most of the men at arms/knights were simple blackend plate, and that makes it hard to keep track of, imagine a big skirmish male, with a dozen or more figures, and both side have the same weapons and armor.
With regular wargaming units are based and can have flags and other ways of making them stand out from the other side, but not in skirmish gaming. So I've decided to go even further from reality, by useing colored amor. This is totaly unhistoric, I know of no colored armor in medieval Europe, the Japanese had them ofcourse and some of the ancient armies did color their leather, linen and bronze armor.
But other then blackening their armor, Europeans didn't color them.
