Hi guys, odds are if you clicked to come here you know wha tthe romance of the three kingdoms (ROTK) is
if yo udon't it is the same period of history (approx 180-250 AD for this army) in china whic the games Dynasty warriors and Kessen 2 were based on- so liu bei etc.
i decided i want to do a shu army :) if you look at the project logs, i am starting discussions of how i might do it and sharing those i have already link is at the bottom! so the list-

Liu Bei (Tyrion) 400

Zhang Fei
(Korhil) 140


Guan yu (Caradryan) 175

Zhuge Liang
Mage
Level 2
Dispel scroll
Skeinsliver 175

8Dragon Princes
Full command
Dragon horn
315

14 Lothern Seaguard
Full Command
Shields 182

14 Lothern Seaguard
Full Command
Shields 182

13 Phoenix Guard
Full command
225

Repeater bolt thrower 100

Repeater bolt thrower 100

so yeah to explain some choices-

1/ Tyrion- i love him, he is rarely used and he looks the part- see the other thread for pictures- that is it really!

2/ Skeinsliver- everyone i told i had taken this said what?! why?!- the reason is thus- the character who he is meant to be- Zhuge liang- was a master strategist and i thought this fitted well!

lothern sea guard/ The Zhuge Nu was a repeater crossbow (invented by Zhuge liang) so i wanted some archers and also some spearmen, the spearmen would often form a shield wall from which the crossbows would fire from behind, so i figured this was a way to do it- i know the units are small, but my points seem to have gone elswhere!

bolt throwers- These were used to an extent as large Zhuge Nu so i will just make up some of those- see the project log for more details!

Phoenix guard- these will be made up of what will appear to be pikemen who would have made up the palace guard- accompanied by Guan yu (who was never incharge of the palace guard, but he had a massive halberd and killed lots of big people- like Caradryan)

so yeah, i have tried to go for themed, with a competetive edge but expect to lose abut 60% of games- would appreciate feedback!!

To be honest, I am less worried about the list, I just can't wait to see the finished models in the army!!!

if i am being strictly historically accurate, its a hard one as they didnt use heavy weapons. however my idea was this-
change the phoenix guard so they have the L shaped chinese polearms, then give the 'white lions' guan dao and have them stripped to the waist with a scaly cloak or use corsair bits as they have both cloak and heavy armour?
