Light lancesSome cavalry used spears that were lighter than the lance in TtS! but more substantial than light throwing javelins. The Normans, for example, used spears that could either be thrown or wielded over-arm in melee, or, later, couched under the rider’s arm.When specifically mentioned in an army list, units designated as having light lances can either use their ammunition markers as javelins, in the normal manner, or when charging they may be used to give a bonus hit in melee, similar to a lance. Unlike a lance, however, the bonus card for a light lance is an 8+, as opposed to the 6+ of the lance. After use as a lance, one ammo marker is removed.
