Here's the list I've put together - need to keep Warrior thoughts going.

List 5 in African Warrior:


I went Moroccan

CinC 2E Reg B HK, L,Sh - 161 (no PA - he'll be fighting and why have additional waivers and it costs 30 for reg)

Sub - same - 103
2E Reg B HK L,Sh - 88

2x 2E Urban Lancers Ir B EHC/HC L,Sh - 85 (170)

nice mounted force - able to shoot gaps and such and HK can weather a little bit more than the EHC.

3x 2E Ghulam Cav Reg C LC Jls,Sh - 42 (126) - scouting and gaps/flank marches/stalling wing


4E Ghulam Spear Reg C LMI Jls,B,Sh - 90

4E Songhai Boatmen Reg C LMI Jls,S,Sh - 90 - can be bow instead depending upon preference)

4x 4E Arma Muskets Reg B LHI/LMI 1HCW,HG,Sh - 122 (488) - modern firearms w/ 160p range and they can fight pretty well as LHI and having 1HCW.

6 units of shooter/fighter combo - decent force size and capable of some serious damage with the modern firearms. They'll get waivers for free b/c of HG - fun troop

6E Urban Milita Bow Reg D LMI B 1/2 Sh - 70 - cheap space and missiles

6E Tribal Skirmishers Ir D (1E C) LI Jls,Sh - 51 - nice terrain filler - can push other LI out and can hold a woods/rough hill all day allowing main force to not be bogged down in terrain.

Options: what to do with Urban Militia requirements - 8 elements.

I whet originally with this

2x 4E Urban Militia Reg D LMI Jls,D,Sh - 74 (158)

or you could go with a space eater 12E Ir D MI LTS 1/2 Sh - 97 saving 61 points
- could use extra points for LI or a 6E unit of Reg D LMI B 1/2 Sh for 70

I really like the loose urban milita to be honest as they can get out of Dodge and possibly push in terrain. The close foot is a target that may cause combat to occur - although they could be sent on a flank and just be movable terrain. With the close foot you can actually take up more space AND get another 6E Reg D LMI B 1/2 sh unit - ok, you talked me into it Smile

1585 points

Taureg camel lancers
Make the HC camel proof and use the units together

I liked the line where you could have ID MI LTS JLS D 1/2 Sh. ID does a great job of throwing darts at their opponents. You could shrink the HG units to two element units to go between the blocks of LTS JLS D and look for free waiver tests.

Solid Army...I would definitely have a huge MI unit for 'mobile terrain'...Key to your victory chances will be shooting with your HG and keeping armored lancers off all your medium foot.
