I finally got my kingdom built out. Ive been listening a lot to The Fall of Rome and love the Byzantine medieval aesthetic. I think that using the base models from the LotR starter set will be perfect to build around and already have ideas for filling out the rest of the army
Kingdom Name- Nicomedia
Current Ruler- Duke Frederick Alonzo de Constance-Lumishie
Born of a union between the two great families from powerful southern kingdoms, Frederick strove to make a name for himself in the twisted and convoluted politics of the decedent south. Despite the powerful and ancient noble blood in his veins, he was not in line for succession and the mixed families of his house meant he was kept out of certain religious and political posts that could help him gain the influence needed to get him on the coveted throne.
Realizing how troublesome he would become, the current emperor and senate sent him north to establish a territories and subjugate the kingdoms long outside their reach. He graciously accepted his new role, and knew that fastest way to sitting on the throne was with a loyal army at his back. Establishing a city named after the first Emperor, he conquered and allied with willing orc tribes to build kingdom that'll be his place of power before returning home and taking the throne he knows is his.
Orc City, Dark Hills, Smithies
Dungeons, Ancient Ruins, Barrens, Rough Hills
My goal is to build a fast, hard hitting army of human knights and orc linebreakers. Light cav and wolves for getting to the back line and flank charges.
I love the idea of orcs as more noble tribesmen, like Gauls. Also I love Cataphracts, so being able to combine the two makes me the happiest wargamer ever!
