Yes, you can harrass vulnerable and valuable units with them. Against an 8-9 defense a single line can be enough, and they can avoid close combat. But I still think that they are too expensive (especially by the elves).

Oh yeah, the elves are right out. I still can not comprehend that they have don't have the two combat dice of all other cavalry.

Grabbing bits and pieces from the lead mountain to assemble some more heavy infantry. Some kitbashes, some conversions and a Frostgrave metal model that fit in. Wanted a few more women in the unit so I found the Frostgrave templar, the Eowyn model and stuck some partial plate of a female plastic soldier, and finally because my Oathmark kingdom has Orcs in it, a Reaper half-orc that has been waiting for paint for an age.

Partial army shot as I lined up the foces to play a game of Oathmark in my living room.

2500 pts, scenario was Lost in the Hills from Oathbreakers, the first scenario of three in an expedition to conquer a mystic tower.

The game was very interesting, with a lot of rough terrain on the table but very little that blocked line of sight. To add to the confusion we got to deploy each others armies! I smacked my opponents catapult in a far of corner, and he countered by placing my Human heavy cavalry in the opposite corner. Otherwise the armies mostly just spread out on a random line as we had fairly narrow deployment zones. In the end my heavy cav with Blade Master on them were able to roll up one flank supported by some very accurate Mounted Rangers, while my Ogres and Soldiers did a decent enough job at holding of some Elf Cavalry and Dwarf Warriors on the other flank. Won the game on points and got to add a Mountain Pass to my kingdom.

Wouldnít want to face that massive army. Goblin wolves must have dominated if so many! Nice kitbashing ideas too.

Fantastic stuff. They're perfect for linebreakers and your GS work seems to be getting better and better (especially a fan of that sword on the previous page). Really keen to see these guys painted up.

Just a small update for today, as I've mostly spend the weekend working on terrain. The Linebreakers needed a standard bearer but I was short on flags. As the other units in the army have sculpted flags I wanted the same here and ended up doing a flag in greenstuff. I draped it hanging down and attached a little chain and skull bit I found in the box. May go back and add something were the chain attaches to the pole. The mini itself is a Frostgrave knight body and head with arms from Frostgrave demons, a Victrix viking sword and a lance/banner pole from Fireforge.

Rather good :)
The flag is really well done. Not easy to work with sheets of Green Stuff in my experience.

Iíve just acquired a sprue of the Frostgrave knights. They are very shiny and smooth arenít they? lol
Some nice components on there though. A couple of the bodies may find their way into my uruk-hai.

 :o Great work! Dealing with thin sheets of green-stuff is a nightmare, you've done an excellent job with the flag!

Can only echo the previous comments - itís not easy to make a convincing flag out of green stuff, but youíve done a cracking job mate  8)

Thanks guys! I worked the greenstuff out thin and then got it flat by working it against some wetted mdf. I think I got most of the fingerprint texture out and an even thickness in the end.

Captain Blood: Yeah, their new kits are a bit smooth and shiny, but also very good I think. The new kits are all a bit similar in that regard. Digital sculpts I think. The female wizards are my favourites since the Barbarians, but the Knights and Demons both have some good bits.

Hello everyone!

Today we played the second game of Oathmark from the Military Expedition mentioned above. These are three-scenario mini campaigns, a great concept from Joe MacCullogh. I won the first game but lost the second as I failed to route my opponents dwarven infantry before he could claim the road we fought over.

As I was planning out my army list for this I did come to the conclusion that I could probably use another unit of basic infantry to fill out some lists. I have built a bunch of cavalry, mounted archers and ogres and such for this force but it is good to have options. I did some mental inventory of my sprue collection (it is reasonably well sorted so I have a decent idea what's in there) I found that I had almost two full sets of Fireforge Northmen Archers which I had not built.

So same deal as the other infantry: Fireforge bodies, Oathmark arms (pretty much out of these now), Victrix or Oathmark heads and weapons. For a little variety I included some Gaul heads and swords in this unit, I don't think they look to different to the viking, saxon and Oathmark heads.

As you can see in the second picture the Fireforge archer bodies have hoods, so that'll be a nice way to tell the units apart. I ended up really liking the wide legged archer stances as they gave me some nice bracing/blocking poses.




What do you guys think?

I like those a lot- they look like solid main line infantry. Youíre right that the wide stance gives a really good sense that theyíre bracing to defend against a change! The Oathmark arms certainly seem to fit well with the bodies. I like the variety of heads and helmets, too, varied but not too random.

Iím looking forward to seeing them painted!
