The Fire Lance was a small tube attached to the end of a spear (originally at least). It could then be ignited and would work like a small flamethrower/explosive at the end of the spear tip, shocking enemies and burning them in the process.
These weapons were commonly found stacked up around the city for the guards to use during times of war. They were extremely effective when used on the walls of a city to repel invaders and shock them psychologically.
Ranked up when defending a breached gate the wave of flames might tip the balance in your favour.
Using more traditional weapons they also added some more cavalry options with Polearms.
They look like some neat heavy cavalry, ready to smash through enemy lines in a thunderous charge. Large Wardrums are also being beaten as you psych yourself up to war.
It’s neat seeing more and more models popping up for use in 15mm Ancient Warfare as it’s a scale that certainly allows you to game out some massive battles easily.
Have you considered a Sung Chinese army?
