Wedges

Hi,

I've read the rules in the book about wedges, but find it hard to visualise a cavalry wedge. The rules seems to suggest that the first rank is up to 3 figures and then all subsequent ranks are 3 figures and 3 ranks fight. So, rather than a 'wedge' is the unit more of an assault column?

Unless I've read it wrong....

Cheers,

Tim

Ta!

I've just got the Kingdom of Heaven book and, as it has the only Byzantine lists in it, I intend to use the Komnenan list to represent the Nikophorians.

So..

I am going to use the Kataphractoi and give them the wedge rule, should this cost more?

Also,

The Kavallaroi come with bow, then the front rank are upgraded to long spear as well. If I wanted them to be Long Spear instead, how many points would that be?

Cheers,

Tim
