You have made some good points! You may not know, but many archers (myself
included) have physical problems that prohibit them from moving quickly on
uneven ground. I will get close if I have adequate defense (like Owen <g>).
I have fought sword and shield in the past, but since I cannot move quickly,
I cannot get into the front lines and risk someone falling on me (I'm small
and crunch easily).
As far as killing hats/belts first... having watched and fought for many
years, a spearman (in a melee) without a shieldman is a much easier target.
Sometimes you have to knock out a shieldman to get at what's behind him.
who will fight next year with new replacement armor!!
