I know dgmm list someone is Lh s in there own home list but is only Lh o in others where they are acting as mercs.

Not sure though that DBMM can withstand any more complexity did Phil also at last cut some fat out of other areas of the rules? Catavar, I just looked at Duncan’s list of book 3, he makes no mention of Burmese or early Tang so one assumes no changes. It made the old Bw S Samuri too powerful as they were “cheap” Irrg but shot just as well as massed disciplined Bow units.
