Hiimboredagain Raiders (Full Faction)

Postby Rev. Sylvanus » Sun Mar 11, 2012 9:32 am

Greetings everyone,

So my time is short today, but in the last two weeks bricklink has pulled through and I am now able to present to all of you the "full" faction of my barbarian raiders. They round out about 450CP, which inches them closer to a full, head-on conflict with my Dragon Guard. They still need some sort of larger construction or war-machine, but I'm working on it. Below you'll find a picture of the complete warband.

Image

Here is a squad of Marauders wielding battle axes (UR 4/1d6+3 Dmg/Heavy Weapon). They are also equipped with horned helmets. Horned helmets have the stats of a hand weapon but allow for charging!
Image

In the ranged department, a small band of Amazon Warrioresses. They are equipped with bone bows that are slightly stronger than your standard bow. All of them have Spider Gymnastix and Evasion (1d6 roll against all hits; on a 6 the damage is avoided).
Image

You've seen the chariots before, driven by javelineers. There is enough space on the back of each chariot for another fig to jump on, usually either a marauder or one of the two heroes:
Image

And you've seen the minotaurs before; halberds and large shields, excellent armor and movement...they are beast:
Image

Besides Beetle Chariots, the raiders also have what they call "Beetle Turrets"; these are the result of putting a defensive basket on top of the beetle and affixing a repeater crossbow unit. The riders are also equipped with handweapon and shield, should they need it.
Image

Image

Image

Magicks in the Hiimboredagain come from the shaman class. Each shaman has a supernatural dice pool (this one has 3d6 and 2d8), and also has a staff of summoning (see relevant discussion by IVhorsemen). He prefers to summon swarms and cast VooDoo type spells. Also in the shot are some hound units, either summonable or deployed with the regular army. Their rabies bite is poisonous and they will occasionally be paired with marauders to deadly effect.
Image

Image

And what faction is complete without heroes? Here we have Conrad the Barber and his consort Valkyria:

Enjoy
~Rev

Bloody hell they look mean. I remember they were very tough to kill and my main worry throughout your last game. Luckily I arranged it so Leoncor will give us their full support against them... :mrgreen:

Oh, nice. Are those guys on the right archers or CC?

Archers; Amazons to be specific.

:twisted: Sadly, the Leoncor faction is horribly stunted: a whopping 4 spearmen, 2 dual swordsmen, probably the Griffin (if it comes of a forum battle), and a hero. They need Wyvar's support rather than the other way around! Haha.

Probably the best barbarian faction I've seen.

Nice army! The minotaurs are probably my favorite part.

niiiiice bows! Also glad to see your minotaur squad finally complete.

I like the Dodgemaster ability you've got for the amazons. I've had people I'm playing with ask if their guy can somehow roll to dodge, but I told them that it was covered in the use rating and that was that. Something like this actually gives that option to players, and since it only happens on a six, it's not even very likely to happen and throw the game balance off anyways.

EPIC! You've done a amazing job. The minotaur design is really innovative.

I Like that you dubbed one of the heroes Conrad the Barber. If I recall correctly, Barbers started out as crazy ass surgeons during the middle ages. He should have heroic abilities that involve that, like battle ax surgeries, or mid battle lethal injections. With a knife.

In terms of number crunching, I think doing it this way was overall slightly worse than a static -1 to hit modifier (like from stealth).

This. I'll be keeping this in mind for feats :D. Barber was obviously a play on "barbarian," but this definitely gives it a twist.
