Mamluk - GBoH Devil's Horsemen
Mamluk includes two battles:
Mansourah - Egypt, February 8, 1250
The Army of the Seventh Crusade (King [Saint] Louis IX) vs. the Ayyubid Sultanate of Egypt (Emir Fakr-ed-din)
Mansourah brings in what many gamers have been waiting for: a full-blown Crusader army. This time its that of Louis IX, invading Egypt for a second time, advancing up The Nile only to get stopped by the Mamluks of the last-gasp Abbuyid Dynasty outside their brand-new city, Mansourah. Not only do we have 3 "battles" of Crusader heavy cavalry - acting as so many of their bretheren too often did throughout these wars - but lots of crossbows, field artillery, and even street fighting.
2nd Homs - Syria, October 29, 1281
The Mongols of the Ilkhan Horde (Mengu Tamar) vs. the Mamluks (Sultan Qalawun)
The follow-up battle for Ayn Jalut, pits the two great Eastern armies of the era against each other, in force: The Mamluks and the Mongols of the Ilkhan. A massive, swirling cavalry battle so large that one wing never knew what was happening on the other wing, a factor which led to the Mongol downfall.
Those of you who are enjoying the flying arrows and hooves that dominate the recent GBoH volume, Devil's Horsemen, will find their entertainment grow exponentially with these two new battles for the game.
