hello fellow onlookers, my name is jack and im a starwars fan. thats about it
I don't believe that Samurai would be trusting their lives to bamboo armour, as you suggest. I also don't think that this image is showing bamboo armour, it is probably coloured and lacquered armour that makes it look like it might be made out of wood, but isn't (In this case, it looks reddish-brown).
While it is true that Japan is lacking in its quantity of iron... you would certainly use this sparingly-used resource on something to save your life, especially if you're a guy who's making some bulk Koku off his peasants! :)
I have also found through some personal research that apparently one of the larger things imported to Japan by the Portuguese and Dutch traders was Iron and Steel, so it seems that if iron could not be found, then a feudal lord or rich-guy could probably import it in at some expense.
While you do find examples of leather or iron armours existent during the 16th century, I have not come across or found any existent examples of bamboo armour. Did they exist? they might have, but probably for ceremonial wear and not for actual battlefield use.
So, by and large, i think your average samurai would be wearing something largely made with iron, or better, steel. If he could afford it, he might even have used imported nanban armour or perhaps the local variant of it, which was coming into popularity at the last portion of the 16th century. I just do not see a Samurai wearing anything else for battlefield usage, because at this time, the weapons that were entering the fray would tear apart anything else, from insidiously-effective polearm equipped ashigaru troops to guys wielding firearms, you don't want anything else with you when dealing with that kind of thing.
To the best of my knowledge, Japanese soldiers used to use shields... or at least they did before improvements in armour design meant that they became obsolescent in Japanese warfare (Around 800-900 C.E, or something like that anyway).
The Sode (Shoulder guards) are believed by some to have once been the old shields that gradually grew smaller and smaller before being incorporated into being an actual armour piece.
Authentic, Period medieval music!
From the cantiga's, to Arany Zoltan, what is there that i do not love!
I lost a battle... and Doom intermission music came on...
The only way to escape hell is to go through it... with my broadsword!
I must know what the song to E1M3 is
Is it just me, or does that troll on the left look like his ***** is out
theyd need to build an entirely new deathstar just to fit the mural of both death stars lol
This clearly details why my general dies in every battle i play...
i send my general of his horse taking potshots at enemies with their revolvers (Looks Awesome!), then they get mobbed and my general dies :(
can you tell me what the music in the actual game is called...
i cant get the tune out off my HEAD!
I recieved an error on startup,
it said something about error /map Blah Blah isLowered
i have never recieved this error before. i had it reinstalled and now it has another script error, something about the monorail map exceding the size.
loved the game since i played the shareware, and before i started school i got the full game. i was 5 when i first played doom!
have you seen the new berserk trailer!
OMG Epic cant wait
2 Most Powerful, Deadly and Awesomest medieval siege weapons ever.
The "death star Laser gun of medieval times" The Sultan Super Cannon. a cannon weighing 700 tons. it could fire cannon balls weighing 1.5 Tons. it is said that one shot could pulverise an entire section of Walls.
Then you have the Koreans Hwatcha, probably the worlds first multiple missile system in the world.
lol Why the hell would archimedes bother with mirrors, when all he ould have needed was some wood and Rope to make a device simpler and easier to make, The Balista or a catapult, either would have worked, Not to mention that until 700 AD, in all historical documents their is no mention of mirrors
Spears are cool
Naginatas are better.
a naginata is a 3 feet pole ith a samurai sword blade up top
it would depend on the situation.
Spear if i as facing cavalry
Warhammer if i was facing armored opponents (it is HARD! to pierce armor with a sword, But crushing armor is easy, and the armor may also hinder the knight as the bent plates cut the knight)
The axe would not be useful much, although the axe would be usefull for the creation of wooden palisades as an axe will cut wood. (romans did This, mixing a pickaxe and an axe into a multiple tool/weapon)
is it possible if someone could torrent it or something, this 6 hour download time sucks
forgot to mention, will the Chiss ascendency get Nukes?
If they are will they be ground, space or both?
hey i think that the effects are not as impressive as they used to be, becouse Old republic at wars effects are more improved, also i think that you should implement on some of their effects, such as if a turbolaser hits an unsheilded section of hull it explodes, thus making flax un needed. also the lasers should be updated more.
But however the mod is still good and i cant wait to see more, oh and i voted this
Hey i think that CA could use some guidence right now, all they need is what the people think of them and how they could improve.
Also true Rome is the best, followed by Shogun 2. Also if you are not impressed look-up Darth Vaders mods, damn impressive i dare say
Hey, just becouse one or two games ended up bad doesnt mean the entire series is bad. sure Empire or napoleon werent perfect, but then again star wars episode 1 wasnt perfect, world of warcraft wasnt perfect.
is it possible to have an offline customisable avatar in the game?, becouse i think it would be an excellent thing to add into the game
Do you have a file or something like that i could download? its not like i need it badly but damn there is one good song stuck in my head
This mod (Old republic at war obviously!) is good for eaw. i would also recommend thrawns revenge imperial civil war or Absolute corruption mod (acm). A good place to get eaw mods is also to go to filefront or you could just google
in Empire at war mods.
hey can you please give me the list of songs from the space soundtrack please?
