If it makes a difference, I think it is actually two compelled Commons equals a Mainstay, as opposed to two influenced commons.

Hi Valphaomegav, thanks for the response. Regarding the first point of the Demioption not ever being the general in that case, I agree with you and now think it is just a typo. For the second bit, you’ve verified what I understood, so thanks for that. Again, I think it is just a typo to call them Co...

Hello all, this will be my thread to post questions or inconsistencies with the rules. First one: On the Byzantii Muster Sheet, under the Signifer's rule "Signum: The Host's Century" it implies that a Demioption can be the general if there is a Centurion or Demiurion or Option present. I t...

Hi Terran, I've never before seen pics of a painted scorpion or Equitus Durio on a horse. They look fantastic, and I plan to imitate your color scheme.

How did you choose the white/grey coloring of Durio's helmet crest? Is it based on anything historical or did you just like the look of it?

Re: Marching

Can a March action be taken by a unit under Flank orders? According to page 135, the answer is no. But page 146 indicates that they can. This is significant because it can potentially apply to your allied contingent which can be up to 1/3 of your host.

In the Byzantii musters, their combat weapons (Hellfists, Fist) are listed as borne instead of natural. Is this deliberate? This would seem to imply that their fists could be destroyed by Corrosion effects or some other means.
