Drusilla I have never made personal negative comments about anyone or what they playand that sir is unsporting of you. I also play DBA.
Each of the 80 army lists details troop types and numbers to allow the wargamer to recreate realistic armies that faithfully reflect the composition of their real-life prototypes. I know another list someone is Lh s in there own home list but is only Lh o in others where they are acting as mercs. The army lists in the book pictured above by Arnold Hendrix was prepared, I believe, for his own rules.
I play DBM occasionally and use the DBMM lists and I am wondering if it is boook getting the new ones if only a limited number of lists have changed. Enough of a change for me to at least buy book 4.
But honestly feel that DBA3. As Drusilla says I’m sure some lists have become better with ‘excellent nuances’ which not one single person has praised on the yahoo MM list but when people on the MM list themselves start calling changes ‘dubious’, with new troop types that aren’t cover in the rules no one is sure of how to treat the new Bw X with Bw I behindbasic misprints with the Roman general Sulla in AD not BC is a bit obvious, I never said they had many errors just as Duncan head himself says as well that they had errors, then again it must be because I’m a heretic where you get the MM view of the world us good everyone else bad.
I’m going to be making up an errata list of changes from Duncan’s for my guys here to put in their old MM lists, as the errors and changes aren’t that different. It’s the one with the puzzled Viking on the cover, and the DBA cover Roman on the inside front cover. I’m mostly interested in book 3 and Baltic armies in book 4. It features several rule refinements and now covers the period BC to AD.
The list picked up some letters after some troops, X can only be used in England boik France and vie ser versa. I don’t think it’s worth it, Duncan head is compiling a list of changes, errors and problemsbiok 4 should be soon, he has done the first 3. These actually have the army lists at the back of the rules, including Middle Earth lists. My original DBM book 2 is a lot older and has been used more than my MM book 2 which is falling apart, may just dbm that. And I’m well aware DBM isn’t perfect, it has issues and don’t mind when others say so.
Did you have any specific lists in mind as I can have a quick look for you and nook you know. The real changes I’m looking for are in book 4 which I don’t think anyone has compared yet. Is it worth getting the new lists or not? Apparently the Welsh list in Book 3 the bowmen are now Bw s for some unknown reason, how they are as good as English long bowmen no one knows why.
Also remind me again who asked the convention staff to return the bolk you were going to use for your MM games at Lancaster and told you who had them please? Included in this edition for the first time is a selection of army lists to help new players get started quickly.
DBM Army Lists Book 2 (Classical) Armies
The rules are fantastic and once you know them, give the best ancients game around. Maverick I will take a dnmm look at the scots list later and let you know. The book contained almost lists.
The impetuous movement rules are generally considered much simpler. I don’t think it breaks copyright but am not an expert.

Most of the changes have added excellent nuances to the armies. Look forward though to seeing the latest effort.
Maverick, I didn’t notice the Scott’s common army the pike are still the same as the first MM list ie, they still become Reg. Dnmm HYW English lost the Bw s in the main list it got moved to a before of after 13 something and some other minor Bw s numbers changed from to per Kn something or the other way around, apart from some Bw s numbers etc.
I’m in the same situation. They had quite a nice format, with four unit availibity categories: All that talk about changing things with all that input, even from Duncan Head, and nothing, even has typos still, Sx s was thought to be a new troop type but turns out it’s meant to be Ax s.
Joe, I think some people forget all we are doing is pushing little dollies around on a table, it’s not world breaking. Pk o after Not touching the Tudor list, too many things to check. A must for competition games, DBMM Army Lists Book 1 also provides an invaluable general reference source for the troop types and organisation of armies of the period.
Don’t listen to some, as the number of mistakes is minimal. Even you have to admit the list books still contain errors from the first editions?
