Don't think of the movie Troy as an accurate representation of Achilles. I man who is remembered for three thousand years through two dark ages where history was either not recorded or not recorded well probably wasn't reckless and mostly likely didn't fight from weakness.
How could a weak reckless man terrify armies, inspire nations and be remembered as the greatest solider in the western world? I think you may be underestimating Achilles and you don't know what he used equipment wise.
in real life achilles would have taken lubu. achilles was the scariest of one of the most warlike people ever. ive read the romance book and koei made lubu better than the romance story actually had him.
achilles was known to have impervious skin because noone could wound him. his defense was super human. lubu was known to be reckless in the romance book.
Supposedly Honda Tadakatsu never once received a wound (in the sengoku period there were already guns and rifles). I think that makes him better tan achilles and lubu, but its imposible to know anyway. (until Warriors Orochi XYZ XD)
