You have a very impressive medieval army; I've never actually seen custom tabards or griffins used before in a Brikwars army, but I am very impressed with the ones you have built.

I also field a medieval army, but mine isn't as organized or nice as yours (it is larger, however, with about 50 units).
Were it that simple...

The dragon knights are great. The whole thing is brickgasmic.

I appreciate the compliment.

One of the difficulties with medieval/low tech brikwars is that battles can become attrition wars. You know, throw men with swords at men with swords. This is all fine and good and makes for a good time of brick-carnage, but the game progresses slower than, say, combat with rockets, explosives, or lasers.

To fill in these "high damage" roles that inherently speed up gameplay (and look nice), I think most medieval brikwars generals ought to seriously consider using siege weapons, wizards, magical creatures, and the like. These we consequently lead to better photo ops, more carnage, nice MOCs, and that little extra oomph

True. Basically it just takes imagination to avoid that, 'cos the same can happen if you just have squads firing at each other. Dragons, medieval cannons, catapults, ogres, wizards, large beasts, demons (check Zahru's battle!), contraptions, battlewagons, cool heroes, oil (see braveheart or king arthur), kamikazes, skeletons carrying explosive chests (referring to my own stuff here) are all stuff you can use to make a medieval battle as interesting and bloody as you want it.

Oh what a pleasant surprise checking on the forums and find such a marvelliscious medieval army. Great job, the gryphon is pure awesomeness.

Thanks for the compliment Zarhu; to be honest, the images of your own organized armies were rather inspiration as I put this force together.

But without further ado, here are instructions for my horse armor!

Barding:

Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3: (the picture is a little blurry. The black piece holding everything together is a 1x4 black tile)

Step 4:

Step 5:

Done:

Note - the chain is personal flair, functioning almost as a "seat belt" for the rider. It's purely show and can be removed if you think it clashes.

Nice that you'd share that design, I'm pretty sure it'll spare me quite some money and as I said I even think it looks better :) Thanks. I understand why you'd use the chain, now your guys count as being 'strapped in' in charges. I never really liked lego saddles anyway.

I'm thinking of doing it in grey or placing some grey studs on the leftover spaces to make it look like mail.

I think using gray or variations of gray shades would have a great effect. Red/black was my choice of color for faction reasons, but I think the design can be adapted for all sorts of configurations.

Post your schemes/design changes when you put them together :)

Also- I didn't think about that "strapped in" point for charges. Good call.

I have some ideas I can work with, let's just hope I have the parts! I'll certainly upload them once they're done.

Thanks for posting the instructions. Is the barding you own design or someone else's?

I can hardly take credit for brick-built barding as such. I saw numerous designs by others that led me to this. To my best knowledge, I'm following a near exact design put out by someone else on brickshelf; however, he never offered instructions nor comprehensive images of his work.

So I guess the answer is "both" since I had to generate my own guess-work into how to connect the plating to the horse and keep all the pieces from falling off.
