All your caravan are belong to us!

Orc caravan guards were the desert-themed addition in the Land of Two Rivers supplement. This was a bit funny, IMHO, because they Blackbloods were pretty desert-themed to begin with.





I went with a slightly different scheme this time.

This is now it for the little stuff. I still have some ogres, kutara lancers and a myrmadon to do.

Nice additions! But, they seem to be a bit monopose.
Are you playing any Chronopia games?

Yeah, in addition to the two trooper poses (pretty standard with Chronopia), there's only the leader. No special weapon guy, no standard bearer. I think these were really meant to fielded as a 4+1 unit.

I don't think they ever really went back and added variants to anything -- I guess it made more financial sense to push out new unit types instead, sadly.

The irony of it is that I've never really played Chronopia rules. I tried it way back when it was new (and I didn't even have the figures). It just didn't work for me. The original rules were derived from Warzone, which is a shooting-based game, and I felt they didn't manage to change them to a melee-based game.

I haven't really played anything lately, but if I were to take these out for a spin, I'd probably use Song of Blades, Dragon Rampant, Fantasy Rules or Frostgrave most likely. Naturally also depends on whether I'd host a game or just show up to one.
