It would be particularly useful to see some different examples and nuances of warband construction.

Well itís been out for 10 months now... I was wondering if people are still enjoying the game or if there is any feedback. Iím looking at adding some factions and doing some Special Rules so Iím happy to take suggestions or input!

I must admit I got the rules and read them, but have not played them... Lack of the right toys is the reason. Although, we have people in the local club who play this period my forces are based in the British Isles not the holy lands.

I am interested and faction lists for Western Europe in the period i.e. some/all of - Norman, Saxon, Welsh, Irish, Scots, Franks  and/or 'Vikings' etc would allow me to try to the rules out with the toys I do have. I suspect I'm not the only one in this boat.

I know it's likely off the main topic, but well you asked :)

I just got it a couple of weeks ago, along with some start-up forces, I've had a read through and statted my starting warbands up, be a bit before I play it though as I need to do some painting.

One quick question - the first level on the career paths will have one or more traits tables included, but if the matching entry level stats don't mention rolling on a traits table, then they'd never get a trait until they hit second level, correct?  That may not be clear, but I know I was looking at it for Squires-1. No rolls, but they have letter codes in the career path.

I'd also really like to see the system for the Italian Wars, it has a nice level of crunch without being overwhelming.

So the list of charts (letters) tells you what they can roll on as their career gradually progresses. But if it doesnít say in their initial profile entry that they can roll on a chart at the point when you create the fighter then you are correct, they wonít be able to roll until they gain at least one level.
