Persian army Listt
« on: December 17, 2016, 06:19:34 AM »
Hi, I have a question about  Persian army List:
Do the Cataphract unit includes also the Clibanarii ? I have think to create the new Clibanarii units (exemple MC, move 4-1, elan 4, armor 1, loss # 3)
What do you think of this ?
Thanks

Yes, Clibanarii is just a Roman word for the same sort of unit as the Persian cataphracts. There were a few distinctions, such as the Persian cataphracts being feudal knights and retainers, but essentially they are the same.

I agree, thank you for the reply; Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (and I have already asked "Rommel" to S. Claus for the new year  ;)).
