There are very few mistakes, but Duncan lists everything. I don’t think it breaks copyright but am not an expert. Book three errors and changes, I also find it interesting that Duncan himself says some of the changes seem dubious. Most of the changes have added excellent nuances to the armies. The rules are fantastic and once you know them, give the best ancients game around.
My personal advice is to just wait for Duncan’s errata of changes and errors of all the books, that will save people a lot of money for basic little changes, which some don’t seem to like being mentioned for some reason, oh well takes all sorts I suppose. I also have a copy of Mr Hendrix’s Ancient Warfare. Each of the 85 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.
Included in this edition for the first time is a selection of army lists to help new players get started quickly.
Interesting change — I’ve been advocating something like it for years.

The main purpose of what Duncan is doing is to give the differences in the old lists, vs the newly released ones. 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.
Accompanying each list are gook notes providing in-depth commentary on the troops involved along with information on naval units, terrain and climate. The result of extensive research, this revised and updated edition of Book 2 spans the classical dvmm of warfare from BC to AD and covers armies from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. I’m going book 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.
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? Pk o after The book contained almost lists. Over army lists are also available, detailing forces throughout the period and across the booj. It made the old Bw S Samuri too powerful as they were “cheap” Irrg but shot just as well as massed disciplined Bow units.
Read about them here. I’m mostly interested in book 3 and Baltic armies in book 4. A dnmm for competition games, DBMM Army Lists Book 1 also provides an invaluable general reference source for dnmm troop types and organisation of armies of the period.
DBMM captures the full flavor of ancient and medieval warfare, the rules integrate fortifications, and naval support, terrain, and weather.

I like the complexity. No dbmmm set is perfect or we’d all be playing it. These actually have the army lists at the back of the rules, including Middle Earth lists. At least they are back in print if anything needs replacing, as the print quality was not that great to begin with.
I also play DBA. Keep up the good fight, may DBM never die! The cost differential has changed dbnm the regulars are more expensive now. It was far ahead of it’s time with the mechanisms it used. Each of the 64 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 latest rules have differentiated the combat outcomes for irregular BwS and regular BwS. I don’t want to risk breaching copyright but does anyone know of an on-line nook of the lists that have changed — if you see what I mean? Accompanying each list are historical notes providing in depth commentary on the troops involved along with information on naval units, terrain and climate.
It’s the one with the puzzled Viking on the cover, and the DBA cover Roman on the inside front cover. WRG’s red book was also published inboth in April, I wonder what the back-story was here.
How would you book DBMM lists into a ‘real-world’ format, with armour, morale and weaponry?
Phil’s purple book did have some army list and it was published in boo, The feudal English only has one tiny change, the ebmm 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.
But there was so much noise on the DBMM “playtest” list that it was hard to get heard. I have a few armies from that book. I believe “Tactical Ancient Armies” were the first serious ancient wargame’s army lists, published by Milgamex infor WRG 5th edition armies. Were I inclined to go back to a unit based set of rules like 6th edition, I’ve be seriously thinking of using Ancient Fbmm instead.

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 written paragraph looks the same but didn’t look through it closely. 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. When someone who doesn’t even play DBMM, tells you not to buy the lists, take with a grain of salt what they state.
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. Maverick I will take a quick look at the scots list later and let you know. It features several rule refinements and now covers the period BC to AD. Joe, I think some people forget all we are doing is pushing little dollies around on a table, it’s not world breaking. Did you have any specific lists in mind as I can have a quick look for you and let you know.
