7165 points of Easterling

Fri Aug 10, 2012 8:04 am

I decided to compile an army consisting of the Lord of Blades (Amdur) and 7000 points of Men. Here it is:

Leading Formation:
Amdur, Lord of Blades - 165
Easterling Kataphrakt cohort of 6 companies - 210
Banner Carrier - 35

Common Formations:
3 Easterling Swordsman cohorts of 6 companies each - 540
Easterling Captain for each one - 50 each
Dragon Knight for each one - 35 each

3 Easterling Archer cohorts of 6 companies each - 630
Easterling Captain for each one - 50 each
War Priest for each one - 100 each

3 Easterling Phalanx cohorts of 6 companies each - 630
Easterling Captain for each one - 50 each
Dragon Knight for each one - 35 each

3 Easterling Kataphrakt cohorts of 6 companies each - 630
War Priest for each one - 100 each
Dragon Knight for each one - 35 each

3 Easterling Axeman warbands (Khandish merc warband rules) of 6 companies each - 450
Easterling Captain for each one - 50 each
2 of the formations having a banner carrier - 35 for each formation
Easterling Trumpet-player (like in the Two Towers book) for each one - 15 each

3 Eastering Horseback Archer warbands (Khandish merc horsemen rules) of 6 companies each - 450
Easterling Captain for each one - 50 each
Easterling Trumpet-player (uses effects of Horn-blower) for each one - 15 each

16 Easterling Charioteers (Khandish Charioteer rules) - 1600

Total: 7000 + 165 = 7165

I would get rid of 4 Dragon Knights just for the sake of being around 7000 points because no one plays af odd intervals like 7165, and because you already have captains in the formations. Also, for your easterling axemen, are you changing the rules for them? I would make them more expensive, perhaps 5 more points per company because they have heavier armor than the khandish.

Well, I'll be honest: the points limit I chose was so I could put 7000 points of guys under the command of the Lord of Blades.

So what about the axemen? More points per company or...? ;)

The Easterling axemen are Easterling models using the Khandish Mercenary War-band profile and therefore cost 25 points per company (ppc), while the pure-Easterling units cost 30 ppc for swordsmen, and 35 ppc for kataphrakts, phalanxes, and archers.

Ok. So they have the same rules, etc.
