I believe it's in African Warrior. You can download African Warrior here: http://www.fourhorsemenenterprises.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17284

I will happily answer any questions on the list as I have the army and enjoy running it Smile

I am happy seeing questions coming up on the Forum - keep firing away

And....now for a list on 1600 points...

CinC PA Irr B EHC/HC L,Sh El proof 175
Sub similar 115
2 units of 2E Irr B EHC/HC L,Sh El proof 182
(that's the required MC elements, upgraded, but not all the way as they have a reserve role, not a line role)
6E Irr C LC JLS,Sh 91
(I don't make these elephant proof as they are not intended to operate near/around the elephants, rather on a flank or flank march. They're not camel proof because this list version has no camels...they would be camel proof if I ran some camels.)
2 units of 2 Irr C El JLS/JLS 210
(not great elephants, but what you have to work with...will need close support from infantry)
2 units of 6E Irr C MI LTS,JLS,D,Sh/LTS,JLS,D,Sh/B 242
(they could be Irr D, saving 48 points, but I intend to use them in an attacking role)
3 units of 4E Reg C LHI/LMI LTS,B,Sh/LTS,B 294
(key troops, against enemy mounted lancers these should seek to work alongside the elephants).
6E Irr C LI JLS,Sh 61 (required, I don't think they benefit enough from Dart to add that, but you may disagree)
6E Irr D LI B 37 (required, again, not upgraded)
...that's 1407 (check my math) with 14 units in 2 commands and 32 scouting points.

2 units of 4E Reg C LMI JLS,B,Sh/JLS,B 164
1571...not much room left...perhaps reconsider Irr C upgrade for the spearmen to free up 48 points and buy a couple of LI units...I'd like to have more than 16 units here.

Anyway, don't forget that this army can place up to two six element segments of Stone Wall in the forward zone (15 points each such)...which is super helpful, particularly with so much loose order foot.

Solid...combining some troops that are often not on the same army.

Minor note...unless revised, the spearmen/bowmen who mix on Nubian Christian cannot mix morale classes...so they have to be all D or all C.

There are many ways to skin a cat Cool

Christian Nubian
1604 32 scouting

CinC 2E Ir B EHC/HC L,Sh PA (EP) 172
2E Cav Ir B EHC/HC L,Sh (EP) 91
2E Elephants Ir C 2 w/ Jls 105
2E Elephants Ir C 2 w/ Jls 105
8E Spear Ir D (1C) MI LTS,Jls,D,Sh 157
4E Marines Reg C LMI Jls,S,Sh 90
4E Marines Reg C LMI Jls,S,Sh 90
4E Returning Vets Reg C LMI Jls,B,Sh 90
5E javelins Ir C LI Jls,Sh 61

Sub - 2E Ir B EHC/HC L,Sh P (EP) 109
2E Cav Ir B EHC/HC L,Sh (EP) 91
6E Light Cav Ir C LC Jls,Sh 97
4E Marines Reg C LMI Jls,S,Sh 90
4E Returning Vets Reg C LMI Jls,B,Sh 90
4E Returning Vets Reg C LMI Jls,B,Sh 90
6E slingers Ir C LI S,Sh 61

Stone walls 15

Much of what Frank says is true - the list has some real weaknesses but I have addressed them in different ways. I prefer the Jls,S,Sh combo (being an old Aztec player) I love the combo. LTS,B,Sh is also solid but with LHI costs more points. I have 6 units of shooters which can also fight in Hand to Hand.

The Stone walls can be useful, although I haven't figured them out entirely.

Fun army to play. I wish we'd see more of these types of fun armies and not just the same old armies trotted out.

These are both great lists. Are the Christian Nubians related to the Blemmye/ Nobades (IW-17)?

You'd want to read the list notes in both cases to see...African Warrior was an attempt to clean up and detail lists applicable in our system from Africa, which one might suggest was neglected in earlier Army List books.
