    For some reason I’ve stalled on the classical Greeks I was working on but the inspiration for all things Trojan remains strong. Just a quick update on my blog, Petite Guerre.

    And because we all like a bit of eye candy:

    Out of curiosity… Do we have any idea how prevalent swords would have been around the time of the Trojan War (assuming around 1250 BCE)?

    I’ve been cleaning and assembling foot figures and it just seems like too many swordsmen as opposed to spearmen. Fifty percent or so of my figures are wielding a sword (or at least the figures come equipped so–haven’t finished assembly.) Now, for gaming purposes I’m thinking more skirmishy than set-piece battle but even so I would think only the social elites would carry swords and surely that would not include 50% of warriors.

    Would it?
