Thanks for posting so much info ahead of publication. Could you clarify a couple of things which I've picked up from posts over the last couple of weeks

Which foot units have only 6 figs ? (Men-at-arms and skirmishers, I've seen mentioned).

Are the number of foot Men at Arms and Mounted Men at Arms units combined for the 12 pts/4 units test, or are you allowing 12pts of each ?

I've dusted off my old unfinished 100 HYW armies to give this a go and want to fill in gaps ahead of publication.

You've got it so far as 6 model foot units go: just Men-at-Arms and Skirmishers. All three mounted troop types are 6 models also.

Mounted and Foot units count separately, so you could include two foot MAA and two mounted MAA for a small but powerful retinue.

What make are your HYW armies? I'm always interested to know what other people are using...

The figures I'll be using are all late 70's vintage (blocked painted in enamels), a mixture of Hincliffe, Minifigs, Garrison and Lammings. Small and wooden by today's standards but I have a soft spot for them and t will be interesting to see if a bit of TLC can lift their spirits.

Superb stuff! If you do pick up the rulebook when it publishes, take a look at the tongue in cheek suggestion I've made for fantasy armies using 1970s/80s figures and apply it to your HYW retinues!

I have also pre-ordered the rules.

Your crossbow unit needs 12 models. Other than that, all good.

I think your box of plastic Fireforge should have enough extras for your crossbows.
