Re: Re: falx

Falx's were not used mounted — highly inprobable.

To be effective falx's were used with two hands, this
can't be done effectively mounted.

The falx came in different sizes — this is true but, the long
bladed versions are clearly two-handed weapons. To see these
on horseback, no way! The dude wouldn't have a chance in

If you can prove this to be otherwise let me see your evidence.
(I've looked for it everywhere and can find none).

Yip, yip cheerio!

Re: Suggestion for enemies

Do you ride horses and have you ever used a falx...


Re: Re: Falx's

Not a quite a falx but I've been doing
medieval reenactment for many years (professionally)— I ride
steeds and have jousted (in full armor).

I have used large double edged swords (european style) from horse
back and I can say that without stirrups they are
not easy to handle. A falx would be even more difficult.

You might be able to scare someone with it from
horseback but to use this weapon, in the thick of battle
(with a shield no less) would be folly!

Now, it could be these guys dismount and then use them.
That is a possibility.
