By my reckoning, it has been nearly two years since I posted a full shot of my large medieval army - the Dragon Guard - on the Armory threads. This has mostly to do with the fact that I've been concentrated over those years on acquiring sci-fi legos and expanding my Barbarian army. The Dragon Guard, however, was my very first faction
, consisting of a mere 31 figures, a ballista, 4 horses, and my iconic griffin. As of last week I have acquired what are probably my last additions to the Dragon Guard army. Not that it will retire, but I will now focus my energies exclusively on the ossum of my Barbarian Horde.
The forces are quite expanded since its original days. A full headcount now is:
INFANTRY: 8 Militia, 7 Fire-blades, 16 Spearman, 16 Archers, 2 Standard Bearers
CAVALRY: 4 Crimson Dragon Knights, 4 Cerulean Dragon Knights, 3 Dragon Riders
CREATIONS: 1 Dragon Cannon (3 crew), 1 Griffin, Optional Ballistae x2 (2 crew each)
WIZARDS/HEROES: 3 Mages, 1 Cavalry Captain, 1 Hero Lord
Totals: 68 figs, 9 horses, 3 Dragons, 1 Beast, 1 Cannon
Estimated CP: 1000
I won't be taking pictures of all the units again; they have remained relatively the same from what is found here
I LOVE brickforge customs, and so some of my last paycheck went to getting 8 OTC
swords. This unit of fire-blade warriors is lightly armored (+1) and have handweapons that deal an extra +1d4 fire damage. When the next chapters of the rulebook come out, they will also have a skill comparable to CC Weapons Master
An update I'm most happy with is a doubling of the army's cavalry units. Because of color supply and design of certain armor pieces from BrickForge, I've updated the pauldron types for all the knights, and returned to the traditional dragon helmet from Dragon Masters. The newly added knights are accented by blue highlights as opposed to the red color scheme of the older knights.
And at long last, the Dragon Guard has dragon riders! I was able to find classic green dragons at a good price and JUMPED ON IT! The figures mounted on the dragons used to be hammerer body guards. That position has been reconfigured to the fire-blades, allowing me to have a unit of winged, flying, fire-breathing death-from-above.
Thanks for indulging my recent photo-taking. The photo surroundings have also changed; I've recently left graduate school and moved into my own house, so there you have it. Hopefully I can find a hobby/comic store nearby so I can use my massive charisma to teach a new wave of brikwarriors.
