* WB & FT: Only one type may be bought. Prussian WB are BP3 and move 9 inches.
If any Russian FT are bought, all must be bought, along with the Allied HC. Allied HC can be Poles or Russians. Russian HC can dismount (d) to bolster the Russian FT.
** Allied LC are either Poles, Russians, or Samogitians.
Other sets of rules have the Lithuanian Retainers as all LC. However, my own view is that they are primarily close combat cavalry - armed with Spatha (light lance) with a pavise type shield, but adept with bows - and their charging the Teutonic Knights at Tannenburg frontally was a critical element in the battle, so LC under Armati is not really realistic. The Lubeck Chronicle does also describe them as being capable of skirmishing with the bow, so I thought that by giving them a large percentage of core HC but a lot of optional LC or HC this would give each player the choice on their own interpretation.
