    Default The Case of the Missing Longbows

    For some reason in my MTW game as the English I've built up to Bowyer's Guild in Wales and yet I cannot produce Longbowmen. I have the 1.2 patch installed and the Viking Invasion expansion installed as well. I assume this is a glitch unless there is something else I have to build. Has anyone else encountered this and if so how the heck can I fix it?

    Thanks guys!

    You also have to wait until the year 1205.

    LBs aren't available until the High Period, that's why it's so important to bribe the LBs in Wales at the start of the game.

    Opps, I killed the Longbowmen in Wales at the beginning...... D'oh!

    I have nearly fifty years to go so that sucks... Please, don't tell me Billsmen aren't available until late too cause I'm counting on their arrival to help kick up my armies for a showdown with the Byzantine Empire.

    You don't need Billmen in Early, you can get Clansmen in Scotland and Kerns with Gallowglasses in Ireland. Weaker Celtic Warriors can be found in Wales and Ireland.

    Those guys can cut through anything in early that is Cathy... Except the Danes... ph34r the Vikings.
    Fighting isn't about winning, it's about depriving your enemy of all options except to lose.

    Billmen will also be available in the High Era. V2 Bills and LBs make English a very tough faction.

    One thing they dont get are cav archers, which I look to pick up through bribes and mercs.

    Bloody expansion/patch...

    I used to like being able to access any unit at any time with vanilla MTW...

    I realise it's more historically accurate... but anyway...
