Now you are being disingenuous. I was pointing out to you that many would not have had armour, particularly as the war went on. You here clearly state there was a heap of armour mentioned in the decade previously yet you did not provide a clear source for this other than sources, yet again, saying what the soldiers should be wearing, not what they did wear. The records from the Tower of London in 1642, the main armoury in the Kingdom, show that there was some armour including 60 suits of cuirassier armour (barely enough for one troop of horse). About 2300 corselets had arrived from the continent (note they had to be imported) for Essex's army by Edgehill for his 12,000 foot (Old Robins Foot, p.45) and, as mentioned, no armour was purchased for Essex's army after early 1643, even after the disaster at Lostwithiel.Mamlaz said:What?
1) Specify where I stated they had loads of armor.
2) The heaps of armor I mentioned;
Mamlaz said:Or do you mean to tell me that all that heap of armor mentioned in the previous decades vanished into thin air?
Meaning, I was going by the descriptions in the decades preceding the war.
EDIT: We will end this here I think and get back on track. I have slowed up with the mapping for the moment, hopefully I should at least have the Marston Moor, Powick Bridge and Auldearn maps done before the mod releases.
