Which is one thing we have in common with most feudal armies: we just
don't know what all the other bits are bringing until we get to the field.
And I'm familiar with most of the issues you describe. My point was
simply that we can't say what the relative archer strengths of the two
armies are unless we examine all their parts, not just the fighters from
Ansteorra and Trimaris alone.
Is it an easy question to answer? Certainly not. But if we want to
really compare what the relative archer strengths are, we need to think
about that. That's all I'm saying.
