Postby Dienekes22 » Thu Apr 26, 2018 6:27 pm

The Liossan Empire

Image
Empress Meriall, ruler and Commander of the expansive Liossan empire, protected as always by her personal Phalanx: The Silver Lions.

Image
The Great Company, made up of veterans that have killed foes in battle, wield great hammers and wear strong armor.

Image
The main infantry units carry long spears and throw javelins before the battle line meets.

Image
Basic infantry provides auxiliary support to the army as well as functioning as constables and law enforcement.

Image
The missile troops wield crossbows to deal death from afar.

Image
Heavy cavalry stand ready for violence with their many tools of the trade.

Image
If horses weren't enough, dragon cavalry seethe with fury. The number of eligible riders remains slim, but the beasts can be trained to carry artillery on their backs in lieu of a rider.

Image
The Liossans employ a number of field artillery to support their main troops.

Image
Small ocean craft are maintained for transport over the waves.

Image
The mighty host arrays itself for war.

The City-State of Vasluxia

Image
Randoul V is the king of Vasluxia. He rides his noble steed, Thunderfoot.

Image
Two of the greatest Vasli heroes. On the left is Keaton Greatsteel, a veteran of many wars and winner of any battles. On the right is Wymer, barbarous and unholy.

Image
The Horned Brigade boast incredible victories and glories won despite their low numbers.

Image
Long sword infantry and their Officer.

Image
Short sword infantry and their Officer.

Image
The Vasli Rangers, fierce Commandos, fight and travel alone. They bring death swift and silent.

Image
The main missile troops carry crossbows.

Image
The renowned Vasli heavy cavalry ride swift steeds with unmatchable skill.

Image
The Vasli are no strangers to field weapons.

Image
And when in need their navy, while not the most impressive, gets the job done.

Image
The army lines up for a fight.

The Kingdom of Aethannia

Image
The Great King Hemarc and his axe, Legacy.

Image
The Golden Knights, though few in number, are mighty in spirit.

Image
The Paladins, sworn first to the sea, wield magikal power granted by the depths.

Image
Though the Aethannians are a sea-faring folk, they employ cavalry when necessary.

Image
The Admirals, in gilded armor, Lead the ships and fleets to war.

Image
The Officers bring the men to bear both on land and sea.

Image
The infantry and backbone of the Aethannian force. All of them are expert Skirmishers.

Image
The archers who man the ships and support in the field.

Image
Auxiliary ships in the fleet.

Image
The great Fortress Ships, pride of the fleet.

Image
The host readies to pillage and plunder.

The Greks

Image
The gods and goddess who command the Grek forces. Enyo, who is Discord; lover of Ares and Leader on the field, Ares Warmaker; the great Hero, and Apollo Far-Striker; the Grek Commander.

Image
When Ares' helmet is seated upon his head the time for war is at hand.

Image
Image
Field horns and banner carriers amplify the messages of Enyo, their Leader.

Image
War elephants march with thunderous feet guided by their handlers.

Image
Grek heavy Phalanx infantry, the Spartiátēs.

Image
Akhilleus, hero of the Myrmidons. Like his men, he is a Skirmisher.

Image
Myrmidon Skirmishers and an Officer.

Image
Hoplítēs Perioíkos light infantry Phalanx and an Officer.

Image
Toxótēs and an Officer.

Image
Image
The Automatons, great war machines, courtesy of Haephaestus. They wield spear and sword with murderous efficiency.

Image
The oxybelēs bolt thrower, the largest piece of artillery employed by the Greks. On the right is a small ballista.

Image
Epibátēs Toxótēs marine archers stand next to Epibátēs Hellenes, the Grek marines.

Image
The Epibátēs aboard their Triērēs warship.

Image
The Grek forces arrayed for battle.

Mercenary Groups

Image
The Scorpions are led by Vlädhek, an expert swordsman and utterly ruthless. They may not have the numbers of other mercenary companies, but they are just as formidable in battle.

Image
The Bulls, led by Cedrik the Bull(y), are almost as likely to attack their employers as anyone else. They cost almost nothing to hire and so take to looting at every opportunity.

Image
The Steel Legion are the contractors of mercenary groups. They hire out work to a number of small organizations leading to a menagerie of different kit and heraldry when they take the field.

Otherworldly Horrors

Image
The Ork warbands have always struck fear into the hearts of civilized man, but now that they have allied with their long time foes the goblins the world is warily building up defenses for a terrible offensive that is surely on the way.

Image
The Necromancer in the mountains is ever building his skeletal forces in secret. Being a creep, he has a thing for snake-men and blood demons.

I came.

What do we have here? Unit diversity. Faction diversity. Coherent design. Effective use of 3rd party gear. Multi-part Lego weapons and impressive brick-builds.  :studgod:

The only misgivings I have are the low head counts for the unit types. I tried to build up my own fantasy setting a few years back and I know how outrageously expensive it can be. ESPECIALLY when you start bringing premium 3rd party bits in (I wonder how BW prices stack up against precious metals for weight...).

Still, though, can you imagine the spectacle of having these kinds of troops in numbers on a battlefield? You'd have a real shot at being the FIRST to win the HH twice in a row!

Thanks, all. Had a lot of fun putting it all together and the light box was one of my better purchases.

I have a few projects ahead of increasing these armies, but I do plan on more original siege machines and boosting the numbers.

The only misgivings I have are the low head counts for the unit types

As you pointed out it's become quite expensive. The Greks unfortunately rely on Brickforge for pieces and for some reason they always discontinue the things I need when I need them. And of course  $7+ for each of the Official Lego minis doesn't help either.

Once I get more free time there's much more to come. Glad everyone is enjoying the fruits of my labor. I'll be printing Stubby's comment and putting it on my wall.

Great stuff! Love the automaton. The boats are great, but I like the Fortress barge the most. I know I have some broke down pirate ships somewhere.

The minor factions are also great. I especially like the orks and goblins, because dinosaur riders. Everything looks really good. I envy your photography skills.

Well this was quite a little pleasure to see. I particularly appreciate:
1) The brick-built dragons
2) Creative part use for weapons
3) The navy!
