Clash of Empires – Dothraki vs Westeros

This is not the first time I will show that Ser Jorah Mormont is an Absolute Moron. Ironically, in this situation, Viserys shows himself as being far more intelligent – or at least, realistic, as he at least appears aware that Dothraki cannot conquer Westeros by themselves and is counting on Westerosi lords for help....

Clash of Empires – Daenerys vs Westeros (conventional forces)

Tactical Overview: Golden Company

Introduction This will be similar to my previous overview of Unsullied. Tactics and Organization Golden Company was formed of Westerosi exiles, defeated remnants of Blackfyre Rebellion.

Tactical Overview: Dothraki

Viserys promises that 10 000 Dothraki screamers are enough to "sweep the Seven Kingdoms". But Free Cities do not really fear Dothraki; they are rather confident in their walls. Dothraki use short stirrups, which is enough to show that they are meant to be horse archers. However, if so, then they are the most useless... Continue Reading →

Become a Patron! Recruitment and organization John Hunyadi Both Hunyadis utilized army which was a combination of mercenaries and feudal banderia (banners – Exercitus Banderialis).

Heavy Cavalry vs Infantry: Impact of Cavalry Charge

Become a Patron! Introduction Heavy cavalry appeared in Western Europe after 6th century campaigns of Belisarius, when Roman cataphractii made major impression on western barbarians.

Tactical Overview – The Unsullied

Ser Jorah Mormont claims – multiple times – that the Unsullied are the finest infantry in all the world, but since Ser Jorah and reality are not exactly on talking terms, that claim ought to be put to test. Tactics and organization Unsullied are described as utilizing typical phalanx tactics. In the legend of Three... Continue Reading →

Strategy of Sauron

Overview Second Age Sauron's strategy was logistically and tactically sound, but he made a very basic mistake. Essentially, he failed to understand his enemies, whereas his enemies understood him.
