who would win?

Post by nix »

heres one for you, with all these modern computer game senarios extar that are out ther and all the discussions we have which army would win....

roman
vicking
WoR
norman
hunn


wouldnt go up to muskeet level in tec but its just some thing i wondered, tech seems to be countering the problem behind it by one step but not two or 3, which army would you inploy in a pithced battle, a seige(att and deffence) things like that, feel free to think of more or better examples or more specific

i just think that a for exampl a roman army (not that clued up on dates, but think lorica and big square shield) would be quite sucsessfull against the wor, but lose against vike, and vike lose againt wor..ect ect

I think the Roman's would clear the field with everyone apart from the Huns.

Asides from that I think the Norman's would spank the Vikings, as they have all that the Early Medieval armies would have plus good cavalry and archers.

The WOTR would probably spank the Vikings for the same reason and would probably spank the Norman army as they would have longbows, better cavalry, and more heavily armed and armoured infantry.

didnt think norman archers were that great(is in i dont no better) and latter medi heavy infantry is just not frettonend as much by cavaly, on a open battle feild the normans have got a nice bit of diversity, but if a vik or dark age army breaks your segie lines , or generaly fighting in built up areas there going to do some serious damage(just to help there cause)

Does this mysterious strategy involve jumping back on the longboats and heading off to raid a monastery which is only defended by unarmed monks? ;)

So the complete lack of weapons, armour and fiery temperament wouldn't make you reconsider? :wink:

monks not having firey temperments! and regardles what anyone says a bunch of blokes living together in the period, how many axes, hoes, sickles ect and simple staves can be leathal. i no against trained fighters they had a less than fair chance, but im having one or two off them put up a fight, and your not going to no that there wernt till to late. why waste the surprise. im not a murder or a thief but these were hard times and lagetimet tactics, raiding was a way of life.

When did the Vikings beat the Normans?

Probably referring to the fact that the Norman are descended from Vikings.
