So now I have finished my Wasteland Warriors block.
these were Avatars of War - corrupters of apocalypse with which I found the oportunity for a cool weapon swap!
Now the The Ravenblight Guard march forth from The Screaming Hall lead by the stalwart Guard Commander Galnyr
A Price To Pay - The Tale of Peutrifectus Ravenblight
This was a tough one. A savage one. Elves versus Elves in a grinding battle until the very last turn. Will the nobles ones prevail over their dark cousins? Or will the sacrifical pyres for Nabh enlighten the night?
SH, my mentor, my favourite enemy, general extraordinaire and contemplator of the most surprising lists is my enemy this time:

In my ongoing effort of giving money to starving artists, I've once again commissioned art of one of my generals.

This is Duke Robert Roquerre, wielder of the Dragon Lance and jouster extraordinaire and well as owner of a magnificent Mustache!
The first and most useless of my Dukes. In the three games....
In The first one he brutally murdered a Flame Warden champion before being chased off. He was later charged by a Lion Chariot (which he admittedly beat up).
In the second he never got into combat.
In the third he roaster three Reavers before being charged by s bunch of Lancers and a Eagle and run down.
Love the guy but he just doesn't do that much for me.
As for the Duke himself, he's quite interesting. A knight of the old school, he keeps himself to a very high standard despite his age and his knights to one almost as high.
And he is always ready to prosecute any injustice done be the lower nobles in his duchy against even the peasantry, at the point of a Lance, if need be.
He's very much the honourable bull in a China shop.
Knowing that he couldn't get away with this approach for too long until someone smarter and a better schemer than him (a list of which includes most of the populace of Equitaine, including some of the horses!) would eventually out-manoeuvre him intl either death or worse, dishonour. Knowing this, Duke Roquerre set about to find an ally to compliment his strengths and shore up hid failings.
He found Duchess Lovisa and found a solution to not only this problem, but the issue of an heir and got himself a life-parter than was even willing to indulge in his... Less than acceptable behaviour sometimes.
Both of them being about as straight as a rainbow, he and Lovisa love each other dearly in just about every way but the physical, using their wedding bed only to produce a decent number of heirs before finding lovers of their own.
Duke Roquerre had drunk of the sacred Grail and moves like a man less than half his age and has no problem unhorsing one either. He is the Lance that Lovisa wields, the brawn to her brain and they make a formidable team, defending their shared realm against elven raiders on multiple occasions.
Duke Roquerre's Arms are those of the Swedish Special forces, whose motto of "Forward Through the Night" he also shares; perceiving Equitaine as having fallen into a deep dark night of corruption and dishonourable behaviour, he hopes to lift it into the light through personal example and ruthless pruning of those that do not live up to his standard [Read More]
Things are getting back to normal after holidays and tournaments and I have actually pieced together the first report from last weekend, including all three games of the first 2500pts tournament.
