Hey guys,

Ok, so I've obviously gone for an infantry heavy list, but that's just the way I play really. I'm sure people will firstly notice the lack of cavalry, but once again that's just a personal preference, the Army is quite defensive, so I don't feel cavalry are necessary, especially considering they don't benefit from detachments, which it'd be foolish not to utilise.

Can't have rod of power and ring of Volans on a single mage since they are both arcane items. You could cut the ring, and swap the seal of destruction for a staff of sorcery. The +1 to dispel rolls is better then a single dispel scroll against the vast majority of magic, like IoN, which will give your infantry fits. 7 dd and the staff, plus the rod of power, should give you enough magic defense.


I would recommend against greatswords. Stubborn is great, but that is all you get for the higher pricetag compared to swordsmen. Your infantry blocks need to be bigger so you don't lose a rank to the odd archer. 25 is a good number, though you might not be able to find the points.

Handgunners are better as parent units then crossbows, because it lets you field some HLR champs. Crossbows gain nothing as the parent.

Volan's is an enchanted item actually, but gonna sleep now, I'll have a look at those changes in the morning. Thanks for the advice.
