  1. Hi Guys, I actually had this project for quite some time here in the TGA-Community (august 2017) as a blog (with 1041 Views at the moment) Actually don't know, if blogs don't get much attention. So, perhaps I should do a thread here to. The most recent list of models will still be in the description of my Blog What happened until now. (in 2 parts 2017 and 2018) The Project actually started as a Ghyran Freeguild Projekt (before Generals Handbook 2017 arrived) The list was actually planned like this: Heroes Battlemage (100) Battlemage (100) Excelsior Warpriest (80) War Altar Of Sigmar (250) Warrior Priest (80) - Sigmarite Warhammers Warrior Priest (80) - Sigmarite Greathammer Warrior Priest (80) - Sigmarite Warhammer & Shield Witch Hunter (60) - Pistol & Silver Greatsword Sigismund (100) Freeguild General - Great Weapon Schwester Christina (100) Freeguild General - Great Weapon Freeguild General (100) - Stately War Banner Battleline 20 x Flagellants (160) - Devoted of Sigmar Battleline 20 x Flagellants (160) - Devoted of Sigmar Battleline 10 x Freeguild Archers (100) 10 x Freeguild Archers (100) 10 x Freeguild Archers (100) 20 x Freeguild Guard(160) - Speer, Schild 20 x Freeguild Guard (160) - Speer, Schild 20 x Freeguild Guard (160) - Schwert, Schild 10 x Freeguild Guard (80) - Hellebarde 10 x Sisters of the Watch (220) - Wanderers Battleline (Waywatcher General) 10 x Sisters of the Watch (220) - Wanderers Battleline (Waywatcher General) 6 x Demigryph Knights (320) - Lance and Sword - Free Peoples Battleline Units 20x Freeguild Greatswords (300) Most parts should be an Ghyran Order, called "order of the yellow rose" at this state, an monastery with Ranger optics. In the starting time. I created those Miniatures: Free Guild General (later Loremaster) Freeguild Archers (later Gladeguard) Freeguild Guard Battlemage With some other WIPs in this year: Greatswords Freeguild Guard Do to some switching between projects. The project was than interrupted until May 2018.
  2. Hello, I am new to this forum and was just wondering what I could do with my Reiksguard horseback knights in AoS. I have about 20 of them and am a very much dedicated Free Peoples player, but I am struggling to find a use or 'count-as' ruleset for them. Any advice since Cities Of Sigmar is just around the corner? To make things easier, this is what I currently own in CoS: General on Griffin General on foot 40 Freeguild guard 20 Handgunners 30 xbows Helstorm rocket battery 10 Greatswords 3 Demis Luminark of Hysh Battlemage Bunch of SCE (although I don't prefer mixing them too much) So.. How could I incorporate the knights here?
  3. "Leos von Liebwitz was the younger brother of Countess Emmanuelle von Liebwitz of Nuln, who died under mysterious circumstances." "Hans Leitdorf, brother of deceased Marius Leitdorf, was the Grand Master of Knights of Sigmar's Blood. Though he had a claim on the title of Elector Count of Averland, he decided his position in the Order to be of greater importance. Ten years before End Times, Hans Leitdorf along with witch hunter Tibalt Greer had led the Knights of Sigmar's Blood into Sylvania to destroy the Black Dame of Kervheist. Many good knights had died back then. When the End Times finally befell the world, Hans led his knights against the forces of Mannfred von Carstein. The Grand Master single handedly fought his way through a horde of Skeleton Warriors to reach the Vampire Lord, but was ultimately slain in their ensuing duel." The Freeguild General on Foot / Horse is an essential unit for a Freeguild army. Simply this guy makes your weaker units hit harder and more resilient. He is a great platform as he has so many options at his disposal. He's not much to look at, 5 wounds, 5" move, 4+ save and a Bravery of 7. But he get's better once you start loading him out with the panoply of war he has available. He has the same weapon's options as the Freeguild General on Griffon (which I will review in the future). Sigmarite Weapon - 1", 5 attacks, 3+, 4+, -1 rend and 1 damage each. Great Weapon - 1", 3 attacks, 3+, 3+, -2 rend, D3 damage each. Freeguild Lance - 2" range, 3+, 4+, -1 rend, 2 damage each. Pistol - 9" range, 1 attack, 3+, 3+, -1 rend, 1 damage. The most viable options are the Freeguild Lance or the Sigmarite Weapon because they can be taken with Freeguild Shield and the Stately War Banner (see below). Take the Pistol and lose the shield, take the Great Weapon and lose the Freeguild Shield and Stately War Banner. Warhorse - The warhorse increases the Generals movement to 12" and allows the Warhorses' Steel-shod hooves attack - 1" range, 2 attacks, 4+/4+, 1 damage each. Take this, the General costs the same. ABILITIES Stately War Banner - This is an optional upgrade for the Freeguild General that substantially improves the battle-shock immunity of your army. With this the Freeguild General gains TOTEM and all Free Peoples units at 24" test battleshock with two dice and choose the lower. By itselfs it's strong but along with the benefits of the Freeguild unit banners and Defiant Avengers (Order battle trait) At 24" all units roll battle-shock with two dices, re-rolling failures and all 1's are auto-success. Add the Freeguild Regiment Battalion and it's 1's and 2's are auto-successes. TAKE. THIS. EVERY. TIME! Charging Lance - Give this mustachioed gent a Lance and he can add 1 to his damage characteristic on the Freeguild Lance if he charged. Not bad, but not great. Freeguild Shield - Give's him a save of 3+. You can take a shield and banner, so like the banner TAKE. THIS. EVERY. TIME! COMMAND ABILITY Hold the Line! - If a Freeguild General uses this ability, pick up to three Free Peoples units within 15". These units cannot move or charge during your turn, but you can add 1 to all hit and wound rolls for them until your next hero phase. This is an excellent command ability. It supercharges all your units turning Crossbows, Handgunners and Greatswords into absolute monsters. Yes you can't charge or move, but you rarely charge, you want the enemy to charge you to activate those nasty Great Company supports and the feared Stand and Shoot. This will make your enemy think twice about charging you. Get your troops up the table with your General, plant your feet on that objective and unleash unholy volleys of gunfire, crossbow bolts and greatsword blows with +1 hit and +1 wound. The fact you can choose three units at 15" is great as it's not wholly within and you will rarely have your units outside arms length. Long live the Empire death-star! NOTE: If you have Hold the Line! on a Freeguild Guard and/or Freeguild Greatswords unit, you can still counter-charge in the enemy turn and not lose the ability. Positives Cheap - 100 points! Why not take two? Freeguild Shield - 3+ save. Stately War Banner - stacks with Defiant Avengers and the Freeguild Guard, Crossbows/Handgunners and Greatswords banners. Can take a Stately War Banner, Freeguild Shield and one of the weapons options. This guy doesn't skip arm day. 12" move on the Horse. Hold the Line! command ability is amazing, turns your basic b*tches into rabid killers. Negatives Screams "Kill Me!" to your opponent. This guy is a linchpin in your army. General on a Horse sits up high making him a tasty target for sniper/ranged units. 5 wounds. Mediocre in combat, but that isn't where you want him. Hot Takes Use cover! Run all day with this guy, who care's, you don't want him in combat and it doesn't turn off his abilities. Solid core hero and general for your army, load him up with Indomitable command trait (+1 save for Free Peoples units wholly within 12" in the combat phase and if they didn't charge). Battle-shock banner aids in making your army highly resilient to checks. Keep him with your Great Companies, he gets Look Out Sir! and is essential in buffing up your weaker units. Consider taking two for redundancy. Take the General on Foot to hide behind cover. Must have for a Free Peoples army - makes Free Peoples across the a more efficient and resilient force. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SAD NEWS: As of writing this the Freeguild General on Foot / Horse no longer exists on the GW webstore. He went last change to buy about a month ago. With the announcement of the Cities of Sigmar Battletome, finger's crossed we see him come back in a new model or repackaged as he is an essential part of the Free Peoples.
  4. "The Mountain Guard are the elite forces of Averland who guard Black Fire Pass. They are the cream of the Averland forces and include regular troops, Halflings, as well as a special unit of trappers and rangers. They are often the first forces to intercept invading armies and as such commonly take high casualties. They are successful at their job of patrolling the pass, although it is difficult to patrol such long piece of road" Do you want an unit full of German William Wallace's? The Freeguild Greatswords are the elite infantry of the Free Peoples, wielding giant Zweihanders into battle, they are staunch defenders of the realms of men and veterans of hundreds of battles. They aren't much to look at on paper, they have basic human stats, 1 wound each, 5" move, a slightly better save than the Freeguild Guard at +4 and a slightly better Bravery at 6. Their attack profile is pretty solid, 2 attacks, 4+ hit, 3+ wound, -1 rend and 1 damage each. Not bad really, it's something to work with in the realms of all the buffs the Free Peoples have access to. The Guild Champion (unit Sergeant) gets 3 attacks instead of 2. The Standard Bearer also makes an appearance in this unit. Whilst their save and Bravery is standard for humans. Rolls of a 1 for battle shock in this unit is an automatic pass. This is important as it stacks with the Order Battle Trait Defiant Avengers (allowing you to re-roll battleshock tests) and the Freeguild General on Horses banner (roll two dice for Freeguild units with 24" of the Freeguild General). In brief, ALWAYS keep these guys within range of the Freeguild General with Banner. The Hornblower - Like the Freeguild Guard this creative gentlemen allows your unit to counter-charge after your opponent has moved all of his charging units so long as no enemy models are within 3" of this unit. The counter-charge is a charge based on a D6. Not great, but you will be surprised by the amount of times you can actually get this off (as it overlaps with the Free Peoples Great Company support ability). Abilities Oathsworn Honour Guard - If a unit of Freeguild Greatswords is within 14" of a Free Peoples Hero from your army when they attack, you can add 1 to all of their hit rolls. Only one ability for these mustachio twirling gents. You will rarely move these guys outside of 14" of a Freeguild General (Foot, Horse or Griffon variant). These guys are bodyguards for your General, this ability merely confirms it. As long as you remain within range of your Freeguild General this will bring your guys to a nice to 3+/3+ on their attacks, pretty tasty. Positives Cheaper with GHB2019 - 300pts for 30 finely dressed, mustachioed pantaloons wearing murderers Consistent weight of attacks with rend; a unit of 30 (assuming you can get them all in) has 61 attacks. Standard Bearer has good synergy with the Defiant Avengers battle trait and the Freeguild General to make a highly battle shock resistant unit. They can be underestimated by your opponent - these guys love to get jacked off all the Free Peoples buffs. Perfect as a bodyguard for your General and as the core of your army. Negatives 4+ save - these guys are the hammer to the Freeguild Guards anvil. Bravery 6 - low, but we have have high battleshock resistance. 5" move - They are very slow, hence susceptible to the next point. Highly vulnerable to ranged attack. Very unwieldy in a 30 man unit. They require significant investment of buffs to be viable. Recommendations DON'T put them in threat range of nasty shooters, these are 1 wound +4 save basic dudes, they will get decimated. Keep them supported by Crossbows and Handgunners and within range of your Indomitable Freeguild General. They are great bodyguards for your Freeguild General who is vulnerable at only 5 wounds. Keep him nearby for the 24" battleshock banner, the Indomitable Command Trait (+1 save wholly with 12") and chuck the Hold the Line! command ability on these guys to make them 2+/2+, 3+ save, battleshock resisting monster men. Don't take them below 10 men, it's simply not worth it. A 20 man unit is a nice medium, they aren't to unwieldy to move around the table and you can get two ranks in on the 25mm bases. Good synergy with the Freeguild General on Griffon's Rousing Battle Cry ability. 1+ hit, +2 bravery and +1 to charge roles makes them significantly better. The Amber Battlemage is good to buff these guys with the Wildform spell. +1 wound in the combat phase, couple this with the Rousing Battle Cry command ability and your Greatswords won't be limited by the movement restriction of the Hold the Line! command ability and will have the same attack profile of 2+/2+. A Grey Battleamge is also good for keeping them alive, cast Mystifying Miasma to make the unit they are fighting -1 to hit. Put them in a Great Company, every unit in the Free Peoples needs SUPPORT! Knight-Azyros re-roll 1's just makes them even crazier.
  5. "The Sterntower Marksmen are a newly formed regiment out of Steingart. They are garrisoned as part of the line of sentry post and signal towers that guard the low foothills of the eastern Wissenland, under the shadow of the imposing Black Mountains. Always at the ready to launch their signal flares to signify invasions, the watchtowers are essential for border defence. The Marksmen share the Sterntower with several other Imperial regiments - Halberdiers and Spearmen - with whom they have established a front-line camaraderie. Sergeant-at-Arms Hans Schwarzblut is the tower officer, in command of the Sterntower Marksmen and a unit each of Halberdier and Spearmen. He is a veteran of many battles against marauding Orcs and his tight discipline keeps all the troops at high alert. Unwilling to sit and wait, Schwartzblut often orders patrols up into the narrow mountain passes." - Uniforms and Heraldry of the Empire Crossbowmen are one of the strongest units in the Free Peoples arsenal, providing robust mid-range shooting and a nasty surprise for enemies who recklessly charge them or the Great Company they are in. On paper they don't look that fearsome. A 20" range, 4+ to hit and 4+ to wound isn't that great. 1 wound each, low bravery, low movement and a terrible save. Where they shine is in the synergies with their in-built abilities and the rest of the army. Positives Pipers - Stand and Shoot 2.0! If an enemy ends it's charge within 3" of the Crossbowmen they can open up and shoot with their Crossbows at the charging unit. You lose the Reload Fire (below) ability when you stand and shoot (enemy will be within 3"). But what is truly amazing is that if another ranged Free Guild unit is charged you can support them without being in the same Great Company as the rule reads "Once per turn, if an enemy unit ends it's charge move within 3" of a unit that includes any Pipers, they can signal their unit to stand and shoot; each model can then shoot it's Crossbow at the charging unit". Standard Bearer - Whilst their save and Bravery is bad, the Standard Bearer allows rolls of 1 to be an automatic pass for the unit in Bravery checks. This is important as it stacks with the Order Battle Trait Defiant Avengers (allowing you to re-roll battleshock tests) and the Freeguild General on Horses banner (roll two dice for Freeguild units with 24" of the Freeguild General). In brief, ALWAYS keep these guys within range of the Freeguild General with Banner. Abilities Piercing Bolts - Each time a you roll a wound roll of 6 or more for a Crossbow, that attack is resolved with a Rnd of -1 instead of (-). Why is it good? Give your Crossbowmen Hold the Line! (1+ to hit and wound) and that means -1 rend on 5's and 6's. With 60 shots from the Reload Fire ability (below), that can get scary. Reload Fire - Freeguild Crossbowmen can shoot twice if their unit has 20 or more models and there are no enemy models with 3". Why is this good? You can move and still punch out 60 shots (as long as no enemies are within 3"), this means you can support your Swordsmen on the move without any negative effects (unlike the Handgunners). You can also do 60 shots with the Great Company support (again no enemies within 3") in the enemy charge phase even if the enemy hasn't charged (because the enemy just has to be within 3" of the unit being supported). Negatives 6+ save Bravery 5 5" move Get picked off easily by long range units (looking at you SC Vanguard). Recommendations Keep them 3.5" from the front line of your Freeguild Guard (so as to not jeopardise the Great Company support and your 60 shots). Keep them within range of the Freeguild General (for the banner and Idomitable (Command Trait)). Keep themwithin range of the Luminarks 10", 6+ ward save (if you have one). Use Hold the Line! (+1 to hit, +1 wound) from the Freeguild General to give them 3+, 3+ (though they can't move) Make them insane by getting two command points, giving them Hold the Line! and Rousing Battlecry command abilities (+1 hit) from the General on Horse and General on Griffon and then have an Azyros in range of their target (within 10" targetting unit get's re-roll 1's). Bathe in the sheer ****** of 2+ to hit (re-rolling 1's) and 3+ to wound on 60 shots. Use them to support your Freeguild Guard. These are your damage dealers, they are essentially ranged Greatswords.
  6. "The Swords of Ulric, also known as the Sons of Ulric are a Middenland regiment of Templar's and fanatics dedicated and funded by the Ulrican Church of Middenheim. The formidable training of the Swords of Ulric consists not of marches or military drills, but instead on patrols and war parties led out of the city itself and into the hazardous regions of the Drakwald Forest, where they hunt out the tribes of beastmen that have taken residence in the land. Initiates hoping to join this famed regiment must accompany such excursions into the forest; only those that fight with honour (and survive) in the gruesome endeavour shall be admitted into the regiment. It is left to each soldier to equip himself in the blue and white colours of Middenland, but once he becomes a full member, most of the funding for equipment and supplies are administrated by the Temple of Ulric. Since the regiments founding, in the days when Count Mandred Skavenslayer rallied the Empire behind him and became Emperor, the Sons of Ulric have borne yellow shields into battle, a tradition that still hold true today. Also by tradition, each shield must bear a variation of the same device; a red wolf, signifying Ulric embattled. The grim northerners have little room for formal ceremony, but what they lack in parade-ground discipline, they make up for with uncommon savagery and dedication on the battlefield." - Uniforms and Heraldry of the Empire The heart of any Free Peoples army is the humble Freeguild Guard. There is something intrinsically cool about some basic human dude running into battle with little but a sword, shield, floppy hat and scant armor (let alone some without shoes). This is one of the main reasons I love this army, normal humanity fighting against giant daemons, superhuman Chaos tribesmen, ferocious Orcs and the ethereal ranks of the undead. It's all well and good, being a superhuman Stormcast running into battle with god-forged weapons, but when you are Hanz the baker from Middenland with your hand me down panoply of war and facing a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh, things are a little different. Stats are similar to the Crossbowmen I previously covered: 1 wound each, 5+ save (better than the Crossbow 6+), Bravery 5 and a move of 5". Nothing great. All Freeguild Gaurd with Halberds, Spears and Swords can take Shields. The Freeguild Guard have a variety of weapons to take, each with their unique traits: Stats are the same for all Melee weapons: 1" range, 1 attack, 4+ hit, 4+ wound = 1 damage Halberd - Has -1 rend. Spear - Has a 2" range. Sword - Has the parry ability - +1 save in the combat phase. Militia Weapons - get a shooting attack. Ranged - Militia Weapons - 14" range, +5 to hit, +4 wound = 1 damage. For this blog I will be referring to Swordsmen only, as I believe they are the strongest option here. Positives Shields - "You can re-roll save rolls of 1 for a unit equipped with Shields." Parry - "You can add 1 to save rolls for Freeguild Guard equipped with Swords in the combat phase." These two abilities make Swordsmen the best anvil for your Free Peoples army. In combat they are now a 4+ save re-rolling 1's. Add the Freeguild General on Horse with the Indomitable command trait and that is how a 3+ re-rolling 1's. Taking these guys in a 40 man unit with this kind of save is a serious lump of wounds that your enemy has to deal with. Standard Bearer - "Models in this unit may be Standard Bearers. If you roll a 1 when taking a battleshock test for a unit that includes any Standard Bearers none of its models flee. " As with the Crossbowmen, their Bravery of 5 is horrendous. Luckily these guys also have the Standard Bearer allowing for rolls of 1 to be an automatic pass for the unit in Bravery checks. Again i'll re-affirm how important this is as it stacks with the Order Battle Trait Defiant Avengers (allowing you to re-roll battleshock tests) and the Freeguild General on Horses banner (roll two dice for Freeguild units with 24" of the Freeguild General). In brief, ALWAYS keep these guys within range of the Freeguild General with Banner. NOTE: Couple the Parry, Sheilds and Standard Bearer and the +1 bravery for each 10 models in the unit and this makes this unit highly resistant to basic damage and battleshock. Massed Ranks - "Add 1 to hit rolls for Freeguild Guard if their unit contains 20 or more models. Add 2 instead if their unit contains 30 or more models, and add 3 if it contains 40 or more models." This can make the Freeguild Guard very killy against other horde units they will encounter. A 40+ man unit is hitting on 2+ and wounding on +4. Add a Hold the Line! from the Freeguild General on Horse and/or a Wildform spell from an Amber Battlemage and you are looking at 2_+hit, 2+ wound on 40 attacks. Couple this with a Knight-Azyros (Re-rolling 1's to hit) nearby and you have some scary Freeguild Guard just through highly reliable weight of attacks. Negatives No save's against mortal wounds. You'll need a Luminark or Jade Battlemage (with Lifesurge) to help them with this. Lose the +1 save from Parry ability in the shooting phase. Low movement - 5". No rend (unless you take Halberds, but then you lose the Parry). Awkward in large units. Weak combat in small units. Recommendations / Comments Take them in units of 20+ as core battleline for your Great Companies. Protect your shooting units! Use them as an anvil. Whilst the Massed Ranks ability is nice I recommend keeping them alive as much as possible, retreat them from combat when you can to increase survivability and to draw the enemy into ambushes (from your shooting, cavalry or Griffon Generals). 40 wounds with these defensive characteristics is hard to move. 40 dudes is very awkward to move around the table, especially in a Great Company that may include 30+ other models. Practice using large units (that's a rule for any horde army player). You can c**k-block your other units (*cough* Demigryphs) by not manouvering these guys correctly. Remember, they get +1 bravery for each 10 models in the unit when taking battleshock, therefore a unit of 40 is Bravery 9. Always support with a Freeguild General on Horse with a banner. Keep them blobbed if you have an Indomitable general as it states wholly within 12" for this unit to benefit from the +1 save. Use the Knight-Azyros (Re-rolling 1's), the Freeguild General's Hold the Line! ability and the Amber Battlemages Wildform to increase their combat potency Take them in units of 10 for screening units. 80 points is super cheap and they don't lose any significant defensive capabilities from 10 to 40 man units (except the stacking bravery from 20+ models).
  7. Gday guys! Long time lurker, first time poster. My fiancé and I are starting a path to glory campaign. My eldest daughter decided to have a crack as well and we are logging it all down as a narrative. We've had the first round so far (3 games, one engagement each) we hope you guys enjoy! The path to glory has begun... (TLDR skip to the bottom for the results) The free people's of Wilhelm Von Deuterich faced off against the very forrest its self... our campaign story is set in the realm of life. Wilhelm (free guild general) has consulted an aged seer who has told him of a great alter deep within the forrest, there he may find the answer to his wife's strange illness. (Alters of the gods battle). Wilhelm marshals his forces (10 freeguild crossbowmen with hardened veteran ability) and together with his warrior priest and faithful in tow (10 flagellants) they set off into the woods. Strange whispers and wild forrest creatures made their trek difficult. The crazed mutterings and insane ramblings of the flagellants were a constant nuisance. After 14 days march the party made their way into a large clearing. There they beheld a dilapidated church to Sigmar, fortified with a tower and 4 strange alters, which were spread out at the very edges of the clearing. Wilhelm and his men had started to make for the church, and the closest alter, that of Resilience, when a thundering crash was heard from the other side of the clearing... a great oak, Amorpha Evergrowth, (tree woman ancient) towered into the air... letting out an other worldly roar, fearsome tree spirits (10 Dryads) tore their way into the clearing! Amorpha and her daughters charged across the field, eager to feed the earth with the warm blooded bodies of their foes! Wilhelm and his men ran for all they were worth. The priest and flagellants making for the church, Wilhelm and his crossbowmen for the alter. The The Treewoman motioned her staff toward the interlopers, tendrils shot from it, tearing the flagellants apart and moistening the earth with their blood! Wilhelm reached the alter... a strange and twisted thicket surrounded it. On its green and slime encrusted surface rested a sheet of parchment, with no time to read it Wilhelm snatched it on the fly as he and his men made for the tower. Meanwhile the dryads screamed as they threw themselves at the church, the Priest chanted litanies to Sigmar, prayers for safety and protection... the dryads killed yet more flagellants. Try as they might none could wound the blasted spirits, their thick bark turning away even the most determined blows, as the forrest spirits themselves reaped a heavy toll on the stalwart defenders. Amorpha attempted to join the battle herself but a strange energy kept her at bay... the sickening sweet scent of rot and decay was thick in the air, almost repelling the powerful forrest spirit. She drew on her magic and shielded her daughters as they fought. From atop the tower Willhelm directed his men to fire on the dryads. He himself felled one with is pistol. The stricken priest and flagellants were in dire need of aid. Hefting his mighty Warhammer, Willhelm dove from atop the tower, landing on the roof of the church, he set of at a sprint, making for an overhang, where the dryads were gathered below, determined to throw himself into the swirling melee, his commanding voice boomed and he ordered the battle priest to make his way to the safety of the tower. Amorpha found it difficult in the miasma of rot, her magic faltered and her daughters were without her shield. She screamed in anguish as the Brutish human lord fell amongst them, swinging his enormous weapons in deadly arcs. He reeked of contagion and her daughters withered and fell, everywhere his hammer struck. When only 4 of her daughters remained she bade them flee, as the ground opened up and took their boughs back to safety. Willhelm had purchased a reprieve for he and his men. He had exerted himself and a wet, hacking cough over took him. The flagellants tended to their wounded as Willhelm made his way inside the church. The twang and snap of crossbow bolts could be heard. Launching their deadly payload they gouged deep into ancient wood as the veterans attempted to keep the great beastly oak at bay. Amorpha slowly made her way back into the woods, occasionally turning to tear the men from the battlements of the tower with her tendril staff. She had failed in her task, to keep intruders away from the alters and while only one was plundered, Amorpha could not help but feel, with deepening dread, that this was not the last she would see of the interlopers. As per the rules of the scenario, we ended with a draw. No one was wiped out by turn 6 and neither of us held 3 alters. It was a hard fight and the only thing that kept my men from dying in droves was the fact they hid in the church and wouldn't come out! My general reaped a heavy toll on the dryads and took 4 of them down himself, using his two handed hammer, together with the casualties they had from the flagellants that round they failed their battle shock and all ran. The treelord ancient tried to charge the church 3 times and failed each time, the final charge requiring a 3... Emma (my fiancé) rolled a 2! By which point the dryads were wiped out and Emma decided to try for a draw, instead of risking her tree lord. The last two turns consisted of her shooting and arcane bolting my crossbowmen, whittling them down and them returning fire and wounding her with their bolts. All in all a really fun game! We both got a glory point and a roll on our respective tables. My general got the inspiring presence special rule and Emma's dryads got the deadly special rule. Both of which were very apt, with the toll the dryads took on the flagellants (killing 6 of them) and Willhelm heroically diving in and killing 4 dryads by himself and turning the tide.
  8. So i am about halfway through finishing my dispossessed, and the freepeople and devoted of sigmar are really catching my eye now. The devoted to Sigmar seem to all fit ok in the new world. The ragged look to the Falgellants gives off that look of humanity holding on to what little they have left. All the free people stuff though... not so much. Was curious if you all had any suggrstions to make the free people fit more into the current world? Demigryphs seem like they dont need to change much, and the grewtswords can get by with a tiny head swap and free guild general as well. (not sure where to get said head swap). I suppose I could wait for new models but wheres the fun in that? ?
  9. Anybody sitting on 5 in fair to great condition? Need them to finish my 1000pts Empire force.
  10. Here's a group shot of Freepeoples Em-pire so far... There's 5 more Knights and 10 Swordsmen still to assemble, the knights are on the Hurricanium horses and I intend to give them greenstuff fur cloaks using a Micro Art Studio light fur mould, (I can sculpt small areas of fur but find it takes ages so the mould should really help). They are sort of Knights Panther but in the new age, so maybe I'll call them something a little different (I'm open to suggestions) I'm thinking maybe Panthero Knights. I definitely think this army is going to need the Griffon as a centre piece. The Swordsmen were an experimental colour scheme that I need to repaint, (primarily switching the yellow for green). The Hand Gunners are base coated now... The Gunners should start to come to life a bit more when I start tidying them up, shading, highlighting etc. However they've all gone back in the box and on the back burner for a while (could be quite a long time) as I'm getting ready to get stuck into the Silver Tower. Another project that's on the back burner is the Orruks, this is how far I got with them...
