I found this video fascinating. This, in essence, is Roman fighting vs. Pict/Irish/Scottish fighting. The mob vs. organized tactics.
The whole route to success for the Romans/Riot Squad is that you fight for two minutes and regroup. Fight, rest, fight, rest.
In this scenario one person has the shield, another has a "stick" (not sure if it's a wand or what).
Writing epic battles for me was impossible--until I started watching these types of real life tactics.
I just don't trust Hollywood to show me a real epic battle.This however, I could see, even if it's a mock example for training purposes. No History channel editing, no professional flare, just cold hard visuals of how it is. When I do my epic battles, this is the kind of research I look for. Describing battles for me requires I see them and this is pretty much as close as I actually want to come to a LOTR battle ground.
