..... versus Anybody


Hopefully you'll have to work for this one..........

500 Highlanders, 500 Border Reivers, 500 Ghurkas and 500 Sikhs against any equivalent number. Anywhere, any time, any terrain. The only constant is that both sides use the same equipment.

Laissez le bon temps roule.......

Since I misunderstood the first post, I'll go with 2,000 Apache warriors versus the 500/500/500/500 coalition.

Sikhs best heavy cavalry in the world, Border Reivers best light cavalry in the world, Ghurkas best jungle fighters in the world and Highlanders best whingers in the world.
