The Ninth Age Presents: Golden Sword I!
Battle Standard Bearer
The theme for this competition is: Battle Standard Bearer. This could be any sort of character model for any official army in the Ninth Age, including those referenced in the official fluff but that do not have an official Army Book yet (eg : Tsuandan, Koghi Empire, etc.). Be it a character on foot or mounted or riding a chariot!
Apart from being instruments of manoeuver, war totems, banners, icons and flags are all visual foci for the loyalty and resolve of warriors on the battlefield, both symbols of their home or regiment, and objects of pride to be guarded against any enemy hands. None more so than the army's battle standard, borne unto the field by a chosen champion and dedicated guardian. By leading from the front and reminding underlings of the liege or homeland they are sworn to fight for, this battle standard bearer can breathe new heat into flagging morale and inspire the men to carry the bloody day to victory against hard odds. The loss of an army's foremost banner is a grievous blow to any host's honour, and so warriors will fight all the harder to safeguard their colours, and will often follow the bearer of the battle standard into the jaws of hell. To the common soldier, this banner stands for all they fight to defend or acclaim.
