My First Blog Post (a.k.a. "Elegant" Armies)

Posted June 15th, 2008 at 04:38 AM by Jaz1597

So, I've been meaning to post to my blog for a while, now that I'm finally a Site Supporter (it only took me two years ). I've been wracking my brain to try and come up with a really insightful first post...

Well, it's Saturday night (technically Sunday morning), I can't sleep, and I've just spent the last three hours coming up with ideas for general-specific armies (along with really lame names for most of them). I figured here would be the best place to post them. You'll notice I'm a big fan of themed or synergistic armies. I guess that's just who I am.

DISCLAIMER: I have not tried all of these armies. Some of them are just meant to be funny. I take no responsibility for those of you who decide to bring any of these to a tournament without play-testing them. Don't come crying to me when you lose.

Seriously though, I had fun coming up with these armies, and I hope one or two of you might have fun using some of them. Your thoughts, comments, suggestions, corrections and snide remarks are most welcome. I'm always looking to make improvements.

Respectfully yours,
Peter

PS...Stay tuned. My next blog entry will most likely be my take on the current state of the music industry (as a starving artist, I feel the need to impart some "wisdom").

My own taste runs more to multi-commons, but I do like Hearts and Soulborgs, Beastly Marro, and The Warden and His Wolves.

The problem is I only have two sets of most common squads. I've been meaning to fix that...

There are some really fun armies in there. I'll have to try a few out. Oh, the Horror and Beastly Marro stand out to me. It is fun to have quick pre-set thematic armies for a family game night. Thanks!

I like your Sparta army, though instead of Samurai you should have added romans. So what they're impossible to find, it still looks good on paper.

I'm a newb as well, but I would like to be helpful and point out that bonding armies are best. So like your first army looks pretty good and I understand why you would add in the templar cavalry, but for serious just throw in another knights of Weston (KOW) squad and instead of the tarns just take the remaining 100 points and take Alastair or another squad KOW, so that at least they are a sturdy bonding army (sides Nilf)

Elven Lord, most of these are more for fun than for serious play. But check out Dragon Along 2 in my second blog post and I think you'll find what you're looking for.
