Phil’s purple book did have some army list and it was published in Not sure why it took so long in that is the case.

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. I don’t think it’s worth it, Duncan head is compiling a list of changes, errors and problemsbook 4 should be soon, he has done the first 3. Joe, I think some people forget all we are doing is pushing little dollies around on a table, it’s not world breaking.
Were I inclined to go back to a unit based set of rules like 6th edition, I’ve be seriously thinking of using Ancient Warfare instead. Looking back they are somewhat dated, but then you can say that about any set of army lists that haven’t come out in the recent decade. Drusilla I have never made boo negative comments about anyone or what they bbookand that sir is unsporting of you.
Ashill I think someone is doing an errata of the changes, will try and find out and let you know.
Even you have boo admit the list books still contain errors from the first editions? The army lists in the book pictured above by Arnold Hendrix was prepared, I believe, for his own rules. Interesting change — I’ve been advocating something like it for years.
I too would be highly interested to see the changes.

A must for competition games, DBMM Army Lists Book 4 also provides an invaluable general reference source for the troop types and organization of the armies of the period. A must dbmk 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.
No rule set is perfect or we’d all be playing it. The impetuous movement rules are generally considered much simpler.
Read about them sbmm. The latest rules have bookk the combat outcomes for irregular BwS and regular BwS. I have a copy. There are very few mistakes, but Duncan dbmmm everything. The result of extensive research, this revised and updated edition of Book 1 spans the period from BC to BC and covers the earliest known armies from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
The result of extensive research, this revised and updated edition of Book 3 spans the early medieval period from AD to AD and covers armies from Europe, Asia, the Americas, the Middle East, and Africa.
The cover says for use with the rules BC to A. People, here are a list of a ‘ few’ more errors in book one so far link I’m not opposed to MM Drusilla unless book can show me where I’ve done so in this thread, as I’ve said constantly in the past I don’t care who plays what it’s just the ‘well this is far superior to other ancient games as it flows much better as its so elegant compared to others’ comments from MM players.
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 replace that.
Book three errors and changes, I also find it interesting that Duncan himself says some of the changes seem dubious. Enough of a change for me to at least buy book 4. Over army lists are also available, detailing forces throughout the period and across the world.
Did you have any specific lists in mind as I can have a quick look for you boook let you know.
For instance the Visigothic list is now called Gothic, that’s about the flavour of the changes, dbmk that input by a lot of different people and nothing really changed, still has a bunch of typos according to the people on the MM yahoo list.
Maverick here’s a link to the MM yahoo page thread where Duncan Head who is a very knowledgeable and respected person in the ancient gaming community as well as the MM crowdis doing a list of errors and changes, only has book one done so far, haven’t read the errors and changes myself yet. Boko listen to some, as the number of mistakes is minimal. Not sure though that DBMM can withstand any more complexity did Phil also at last cut some fat out of other areas of the rules?
I play DBM occasionally and use the DBMM lists and I am wondering if it is worthwhile getting the new ones if only a limited number of lists have changed. Created by Phil Barker, DBMM can be used to refight historical engagements or to generate your own scenarios from small-scale skirmishes to the largest battles of antiquity.

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. Most of the changes have added excellent nuances to the armies. 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 ebmm ‘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.
The main purpose of bdmm Duncan is doing is to give the differences in the old lists, vs the newly released ones. At the time the only WRG army lists were the few in the purple primer.
