    Yes, you are missing something. You are not using the latest, Revised, version 1.3 of Entourage.

    It is useless to try and match the inflated Roman armor values in GPC and ARMIES: they very much have the 'katana coolness factor' in them, IMHO.

    Cuirbouilli should be 6 points (WARLORD, KAP 5.2), not 8. Note that the armors in KAP 5.2 explicitly include a helmet already, too.
