The Defenders of Greenwater - My Order army


Recommended Posts


I have been collecting a mixed order army themed to Realm of Life since the last spring. It all started with a Kurnoth hunter box bought in a whim from the local GW store and has evolved from there quite naturally in to eclectic mix of units. One thing that I really like in AoS is the freedom in the army building, from which this army is a good example. 

The core of the force are the people of the Greenwater, a small city on the Realm of Life. Living there is harsh, the harvests are great, but keeping the settlements clear from the rapidly growing plants keeps the people busy and the growth is not limited to the ground, but everything gets its blessing. Even the people have branches growing out of them. Othwerwise the people are organized in traditional feudal fashion with the knights having their castles and the peasants working on fields.

When the times are dire, as they often are, the people from Greenwater trust in their allies: the Duardin from the Mountains of Mist, the Aelves and Eagles from the spires of the same mountains and the Foresfolk called upon by the Druids.

On to the troops. First the knights:

The Fair Duke of the Greenwater (bit shaky photo):


The Briar knight:


and the Grail knights:


Then the townfolk.

The city guard:


The hunters, accompanied by the Tracker, mysterious Aelven ranger:


And a mystical mummer, claimed to be an assassin, but those are only rumours:


Then to the noble Duardin from the mountains:

The hammerers of the King's guard, guarding the old Runelord:


And the iron breakers:


And finally The Druid of the forest:


The forestfolk:



And the Aelven prince from the spires, with his eagle companion:



So here are everything that I got ready, but I have plans on expanding the aelven part, where everyone will be mounted on flying steeds. I have some warhawks riders and I'm planning to et a dragon and maybe a Phoenix. Also the duardin part will be expanded (as I'm building it also for using in LotR) as will be the Sylvaneth part. Also, the new GHB screams for painting 10 more halberdiers as they cost only 40 points more. Also I would like to do some skinks in robes. Anyhow, I wanted to share this army to give an inspiration what the mixed army can be.

Well, I'm inspired!  You are pretty much doing what I want to do with a mixed order army - have a cohesive looking, mixed-race army that has a personal backstory written up for it.

Seriously, those are some ace looking models.  I really like the combination of AoS, LotR, and 3rd party miniatures to make your army.

Keep up the good work!
