HI all,

I am new to ADLG and am currently putting together a Carthaginian and a Republican Roman army in 15mm. I have a question regarding the Republican Roman list. It seems to say that all Hastati/Principes units must have the same level of armour. This seems a bit odd as I have always thought that the Principes were the richer/better equiped troops and would have had mail armour whereas the Hastati (at least early on) would have been less well equipped , possibly with no armour or with just a chest plate. Am I misunderstanding the army list?

many thanks,
Dave.

p.s. if there is anyone in the Limousin area in central France that would like a game of ADLG with a newbie , let me know Smile

Hi Dave,

hello,
Yes, hastati and principes are considered having the same armor, surely a old survivance of dbm lists.
If you want found player in france, yoy should post in french part of forum.

Thank you both for your replies.

It's a little odd that they are both considered to have the same armour but I guess the very large shield that both types carry is a large part of their 'armour'.

I've seen the video , very interesting it is too. It's Tim's fault that I've started looking at ADLG ,thanks to his website...

I will try to post in the French forum but my French is still very poor... Sad

(As much as I hate promoting FB)

Here is the difficult to find much more active FB group for ADLG if you haven’t found it Wink
