Why the Lamb?

Any thoughts?

Athenians not Greeks Arkle...

Spartans, now those guys are GREEKS!

"The enemy outnumbers us 3 to 1! Good odds for any Greek!" That was one of the best lines of that movie!

Feel free to join the conversation Rob!

But I'm afraid I can only partially agree with you. If we're talking about Celts like the ones the Romans fought they'd loose straight out in an even fight (presuming they don't have any HUGE advantages like surprise, terrain etc.). Keep in mind the Romans were able to hand the Celts their asses as long as they cared to do so. They were well on their way to pacifying all of Scotland up until the 2nd century AD when they just stopped caring and retreated back to Hadrian's wall. Organized troops vs. Unorganized mob will see the Unorganized mob get their asses handed to them every time (unless the Organized troops are unorganized in which case the point is moot). The only reason the Celts became renowned as warriors is because some of them never gave up and continued fighting in a guerilla style inflicting heavy casualties. So in a straight up battle the Celts are set up to fail.

Also keep in mind that the Scots would later adopt the same formation the Greeks used albeit in a different form (schilltron vs. phalanx).

Not to say that different Celts wouldn't totally hand the Spartan's asses to them. Robert the Bruce's schilltron formations were definitely a whole lot lighter and a whole lot better at maneuvering than Spartan phalanxes. Owain Gwyndmyr(?) (I can't remember his last name, but the last king of Wales) anyhow his army would slaughter the Spartans (Spartans =Tanks, Welsh Longbow with Iron tipped arrows = bazooka) not to mention his wicked knifemen (renowned throughout Europe). if they could get inside the Spartan spears. And finally Jacobite Scots (Culloden,) would definitely be able to hand the Spartan's their asses the Highland Charge would totally smash the Spartan lines amongst the sound of bagpipes. Mind you some would say this comparison is moot because none of these Celtic forces existed at the same time as the Spartans.

So in conclusion the Spartans were simply the best Bronze Age fighting force period. (Celts can't actually even be compared to the Spartans because the earliest military records we have of them show them in an Iron Age state of development.)

Just my 2 cents (maybe more but who's counting?)

whooa, that's intense. Jon Pirate N.
I'm glad I played a lot of 'Age of Empires' when I was younger, so at least I understand a bit of what your sayiung about all these celts and spartafreakz. So I just know that the phalanx is pretty strong but slow (<- that's totally based on a computergame, so don't take it serious Razz )
Anyways, I'd allways prefere James' love rather than spears and swords I love you

Man, haha i didn't realise how many pictures can mean the world to me, but not have that much relivance in regards to the time as a whole, like.... haha i donno, lots of examples i guess, but yea it was interesting, I had way to many pictures to show, didn't even get into any of our awsome stories, and ONLY HAD TIME TO SHOW BV1, BV2 would have taken another 10 min, so i dind't get to show it as it was 10pm by the time i got to the end of Vanuatu, people were pumped about it the entire time, but yeaa

I had everyone try tim tam slams. My grandpa and cousin in law was a pro.
