Collateral 12 Additional - Mycenean Troop Types

This episode is an addendum to the third of a series looking at military campaigns and inspiration for role-playing games. This section was edited out as I was really discussing troop types rather than character inspiration. For a discussion of a military game in the Mycenean age, check out Collateral 12 - Launching a Thousand Ships

Collateral 11 - It's An Antique (Army)!

Egypt
New Kingdom Egypt by Mark Healy from Osprey

I refer to "Numidians" in the podcast. I had meant Nubians. My reference to Kush was correct, however, the Kingdom of Kush was part of Egypt certainly at the time of the Hyksos, and during the early New Kingdom as well.

I told you I wasn't an expert!
