Dont even try  seriously ORCIAN WAY

A Classic Dungeons & Dragons Podcast

Episode 76: This Time It’s War!

"...Our “Fantastic Four” take a gander at one aspect of the higher levels of play in Classic D&D, armies on the march! They discuss how to resolve mass combat in Classic (yes, there’s more than one way!), the importance of the resolution of warfare, sieges, magic against armies, and more...."

Note: One hour into the podcast it gets interesting.

Reference to a Rob Kuntz saying they never used Chainmail in D&D and its creation. (Almost 1 hour in.) And discussion how the rules do not match anything in the game. Except maybe the rule for Giants throwing boulders....

Its clear some of Chainmail
was put in, but very very limited.

And its clear Don't Give Up the ship was clearly a match. I know the rules Dave Arneson kept from his write up are a match more so.
