Hi, Sorry, if this question has already been answered- I can't type in this title in a search on the forum- but if knights with long swords attack other knights with long swords and two dice are rolled- one helmet and one yellow 'bonus' there isn't an advantage because a long sword eliminates any advantage over another long sword? In other words, you would need at least two 'bonus'faces coming up to have an advantage? I hope my question's clear? Thanks, oldie

Vs. the standard infantry "short" sword, a mounted unit can ignore one sword/shield die result. Long swords don't suffer this penalty, so all sword/shield results are hits. Foot knights with long swords may ignore 1 sword/shield result when shot at (longbows and arbalests hit on sword/shield while other bows do not).

The weaponry of the target has no bearing on the outcome, it is a 2 part process of
1. The hits the weapon can make
2. The results the target can ignore

So a Long Sword hits on bonus strikes, including mounted targets
However, a mounted Knight can ignore 1 bonus strike.
