|The last of their kind.|
There was the usual quiet chorus of burbling "yes....yes yes" until I hit the Hyrkanians and thought "Damn, I knew I should have ordered dozens!"
Of course I hadn't because I don't really want a whole army of Huns-by-any-other-name. I wanted some horse archers to flush out the Federation or Alliance of "Barbarians" in the north.
|A variety of old Valdurians surrounding one of the new horse archers.|
I haven't got the details sorted but the Federation exists to provide a home for a battered mix of Celtic/Saxon/Fantasy figures, primarily early Valdurians from my college days. I had started to think of a Gothic sort of army but then remembered my old Rohirrim horse archers that I had de-armoured. I'm also minding that I have Prince August molds for "barbarian" infantry as well as a few left over Valdurian Celts.
So there we have the basis of the next player in the campaign. An army of Noble Heavy Cavalry backed by levies of warrior farmers, horse archers and a handful of Valdurian tribesmen, driven into the mountains generations ago by waves of invaders.
