In addition, I finally broke down, gave in to temptation, and ordered a pair of Irregular kneeling camels to give the Mamluke column some firepower once I've added swivel guns and crews. Each stand can replace a stand of Mamlukes....(-sneaky eh?) and give the player commanding the Mamlukes some firepower.

Oh, and I'll have to add light artillery to the weapons chart.
Oh, that camel artillery will be very cool!ReplyDelete
With artillery, a hot fire is what one usually wants, but sometimes 'cool' is good.Delete

One hump or two?Delete
They should make for an entertaining unit…ReplyDelete

Ahh but camels are "cool" take more than a little bang to put them off their cud.Delete
I could never work out if they would get a second attempt at firing the cannon , surely the camel would be half a mile away by then !?ReplyDelete
Apparently they are as nonchalant and zoned out as I am.Delete
