  1. Re: BELLUM CRUCIS 7.0 IS OUT!!!!!!! (but it's still in italian language...who can translate it?)

    Ludicrous, crossbow bolts are the same as arrows of the same type with the same task.
    Crossbows being armor piercing by default is absolutely wrong and their armor piercing capabilities are a myth....

  26. Re: Viking texts suggesting spear was superior to sword in shield wall/battle

    The speartips were made of even lower quality iron and the probability of having a spear shaft broken in an engagement is also a factor to be considered.

  32. Re: Viking texts suggesting spear was superior to sword in shield wall/battle

    I would disagree, it is far more difficult(requires more room) to properly use a spear in close formation than an axe or sword.

    These kind of conclusions are derived from modern reenactments and...
