    Linen or leather?

    This is always a classic mess, on whether the "tube and yolk" cuirass is made of linen or leather. The reason I bring this up here is because EB is a bit inconsistent in the unit descriptions. Most...

    Re: Payadag i Kardakan weak?

    The Kardakan still seem under-statted. Semi professional overhand have an attack of 7, and the Slavic raider/semiprofessional (Voini I think) have an attack of 5. I haven’t checked their morale...

    Payadag i Kardakan weak?

    I've noticed that the Payadag i Kardakan seem to be worse than the regular Iranian spearmen in almost every way. I haven't played too deeply into eastern campaigns, but aren't they a reform unit?...

    Sticky: Re: Europa Barbarorum 1.33 Sneak Preview

    I have a couple of questions.

    1. Will most AOR units finally be available to all factions? For example, even if I had a client state I could never recruit Celtiberian heavy infantry as Carthage....

    It’s certainly doable with the shield they have. I think the Talmes have the shield all of the time as well. But I don’t know why that would be brought up, since the shield they use is small. All you...
