Army Notes

Medieval Armies

This page lists the "official" DBA 1.1 edition armies for the years 300 AD to 1500 AD or the Medieval period. Eventually, I hope to link to a page of notes on each army, its tactics, and possibly even links to images. If you don't find your favorate army here, then try the Ancients and DBA Variant Armies pages.
