So I am revisiting the Feudal Samurai after not feeling the love for other lists at the moment.  Considering this is where I started y learning curve, I figure it's better to keep learning.  So, with that in mind, I am tweaking the list a little more. 

I Corps, Competent Commander (Included)
4x Heavy Cav Bow
2x Light Cavalry Bow

II Corps, Brilliant Commander
4x Heavy Sword 2HW, Elite
2x Medium Sword/Bow, Elite
2x Medium Sword/Bow

III Corps, Competent Commander
2x Medium Sword 2HW
4X Medium Spear, Mediocre
2x Bowmen

22 Units.

Alternate:  If I drop all the elite upgrades I can add a single Light Cav Bow to both II and III Corps, upping my count to 24 units in the list.

I will indeed bring my mat.  I hope you have no objections, I will be running a test list for he Romano-British instead of the Samurai.  I want to see how it works before I buy figures this time.

Hey Mike, are you still planning on bringing your ADG Ghaznavids in Sunday?

The LH javelin can only be taken as mediocre.  The list only allows a total of 8 cavalry (either heavy or medium, the LH is a separate choice)  but up to 4 can be replaced by the elite impact HC (Arthurian period).  I'm not sure there are any really good choices to replace the 3rd HC unit.  Within the timeframe limits of the Arthurian period, I also can add Irish Mercenaries MI, Christian Martyrs Levy Expendable (only 1), swap it out for another spear unit, upgrade a unit leader and possibly take a fortified camp.

I'd prefer not to mix and match the Infantry and Cavalry.  I find the infantry act as an anchor slowing down the cavalry's ability for rapid maneuver.  At the Havoc tournament, everyone I faced had their cavalry in a separate corps to facilitate rapid maneuver and threaten flanks.

We can have another round of BA, or we can mix it up with ADG

I did as you suggested so now the Army looks like this:

Corps I
Competent commander (Arthur)
4x Heavy cavalry impact elite
3x Heavy cavalry
2x Light cavalry javelin mediocre

Corps II
Competent commander (Bedevere)
4x Heavy spearmen
2x Medium spearmen
2x Light infantry bow

Corps III
Competent commander (Sir Robin)
4x Heavy spearmen
2x Medium spearmen
2x Light infantry javelin

25 units, 200 points

Sounds good. You might also experiment with splitting the heavy and medium spear between Corps II and III so that they both can cover small patches of difficult terrain and open ground as well. Matt has had some success with this approach when playing the Byzantines.

As a matter of fact, I did just that.  II and III Corps each have 4 heavy, 2 medium spear, and 2 skirmishers each
