Highlander Warrior vs Sikh Warrior


Okay. A fight betweeen the Great Clan Donalds Highlander warriors (pre - gunpowder era) versus an Indian Sikh Warrior. Who would win and how? A group fight of 40 men, infantry and archers only. The fight will take place on a field w/ a few trees and rocks.

Re: Highlander Warrior versus Sikh Warrior


Well, the Sikhs, while not being adverse to fighting, never produced the type of martial culture that would be needed for this fight. That being said, I definately go with the Higlanders in this one. Gurkhas would probably be a better match, even though the Highlanders would be probably be twice their size.

The Tibetans were some tough mama-jamas as well before they went all pacifistic. This would probably be a verryy good fight.

Ancient Tibetan cultists, of course. They'd summon Cthulhu.
