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.

How would you convert DBMM lists into a ‘real-world’ format, with armour, morale and weaponry? The main purpose of what Duncan is doing is to give the differences in the old lists, vs the newly released ones.
Did you have any specific lists in mind as I can have a quick look for you and let you know. 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.
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. It made the old Bw S Samuri too powerful as they were “cheap” Irrg but shot just as well as massed disciplined Bow units. WRG’s red book was also published inboth in April, I wonder what the back-story was here.
Anything else you need me to look at?

The real changes I’m looking for are in book 4 which I don’t think anyone has compared yet. 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. The army lists in the book pictured above by Arnold Hendrix was prepared, Fbmm believe, for his own rules. Book three errors and changes, I also find it interesting that Duncan himself says some of the changes seem dubious.
At the time the only WRG army lists were the few in the purple primer. Look forward though to seeing the latest effort. Thanks aynsley I’ll check it out!
The feudal English only has one tiny change, the upgrade levy spearmen w north Welsh foot Irr Pk f got changed from toI suppose that’s to reflect the fact they fight in 3 ranks at least in m not sure about mm so you’ll have 3 ranks of 3 rather than 2 of 3 with one under powered file of 2 elements.
The written paragraph looks the same but didn’t look through it closely. I’ve heard similar comments about the similarity between the 1st and 2nd editions from two gamers who have bought the new dbmk.
Accompanying each list are historical notes providing in-depth commentary on the troops involved along with information on naval units, terrain and climate. I also play DBA. Don’t get me wrong, DBMM is not a “simple” set of rules at all.
I’m having an issue with Yahoo. Is it worth getting the new lists or not? Apparently one of the QRS sheets also has errors in it.
And I’m well aware DBM isn’t perfect, xbmm has issues and don’t mind when others say so. They had quite a nice format, with four unit availibity categories: I’m mostly interested in book 3 and Baltic armies in book 4.
But there was so much noise on the DBMM “playtest” list that it was hard to get heard. The cover says for use with the rules BC to A.
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. 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.
But honestly feel that DBA3. Will let you guys know what the changes are, but as I said from what they have been saying on the MM yahoo list it isn’t much at all which has got some a trifle unhappy over there.
I’m in the same situation.

Read about them here. Drusilla I have never made personal negative comments about anyone or what they playand that sir is unsporting of you. The latest rules have differentiated the combat outcomes for irregular BwS and regular BwS.
But I do find it interesting that some MM players are talking about ignoring one of Barkers new troop types, namely the bow X in front with Bw I behind that. Also remind me again who asked the convention staff to return the tables you were going to use for your MM games at Lancaster and told you who had them please?

I don’t think it breaks copyright but am not an expert. 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.
It was far ahead of it’s time with the mechanisms it used. I’ll be highly disappointed if the Scots Common pike aren’t classified dvmm regular boook Opinions expressed here are solely those of the posters, and have not been cleared with nor are they endorsed by The Miniatures Page. When someone who doesn’t even play DBMM, tells you not to buy the lists, take with a grain of dbm, what they state.
Not sure why it took so long in that is the case. They are nigh on the same as the first MM army lists with some minor changes.
