One is a farm
Two is a village
Many is a city

It seems very clear.

You forgot "one and a shed/outhouse is a hamlet"....

The Tudors would have found old English harder to understand than many modern people do,

Many of us can identify one as an isolated individual, but count like trolls when the number is "many"?

With all sets of rules a battalion is out of scale is out of scale with buildings which looks odd.
The real problem is for the historical gamer because a battle field on the Wargames table is a map with each road, river, forest/wood and hill drawn to scale, but, buildings are too big.

Let me mount a personal hobby horse for a moment. Wink

How can anyone, who can look at 24 figures and see a battalion of six hundred, not look at a single building and see a village of a couple of dozen houses?

Colour me bemused.

I would go for "Harness" as that is my understanding of the 15th/16th century term used in English.

FK, I think he meant it's an old term in English rather than a word in Old English (Anglo Saxon).

Quite- Plate armour was not around for the Anglo Saxons !  I have seen it used in  Olde English of the Tudor period. And in old Scots incunabula  to describe the armour of King James VI whose body was stripped of his Royal Harness at Flodden.   

Not sure if "to die in harness" is that old.  Words change with time, and this phrase may refer to the plough horse

I still can't get used to a game of Maurice where each unit has 4 bases. 1 hit and you're down to 25%.

My God. Your maths is even worse than mine.
