Islandscape - The Final Army

Well met!

After much recent discussion of myriad potential units in as many possible configurations in numerous forums and comments, I have decided upon an army for Islandscape 2010. My thanks to all those who took the time to advise me and/or comment upon the various combinations of units I have been spewing out, especially of late. Dok and Matthias, in particular, spent numerous posts telling me exactly how my creations would fare against "veteran" tournament armies. A fellow I don't really know, named Vertigosmooth, was particularly simpatico with my feelings about the Phantom Knights. I also wish to thank chas, Taeblewalker, Sherman, and History Dude for their friendship and patience. Many others commented and, if I failed to mention you, please forgive me, and if you feel you had a significant effect upon this decision (and actually want recognition for it , please let me know). I know this is all so much, but I am inordinately pleased with this army (and, of course, myself ). It is fast, flexible, and is synergistic in ways obvious, and not so obvious, with intelligence gleaned from master and novice alike, scattered like so many pearls before this humble (except when I'm ) student of the game.

It is also adherent to the principles of the Valhalla Society, and I will fight with it proudly, with courage and focus, for the favor of Sylvanus' daughter (and in hope of someday receiving a Valhalla Society T-shirt )! Without further ado . . .

140 Phantom Knights
130 Tagawa Samurai Archers
120 Kaemon Awa
80 Raelin
40 Theracus

All is not finished, my friends. I still need your help with 2 things.

Firstly, if I am fortunate, what should I choose as reinforcements (90/110/130) in the Finals?

And, secondly, this army needs a name!

Now that I've got the real reinforcement schedule posted , I'm thinking . . .

90 = Atlaga, Crixus or Feral Troll or ???? (no combination including Marcu, or both 10 point Ninjas, is acceptable, 80 & 10 might work)
110 = Ninjas of the Northern Wind (How could I consider anything else here?)
130 = TSA x 2 (got to check with chas to see if he has 4 squads; I seriously doubt it), or ????

How's this?

+90 - 1x PKs & filler.

+110 - I'm not sure, this one's tough. Maybe Syvaris or the Airborne Elite?

+130 - Fen Hydra & filler or GIE (you need something that hits hard)

As for the army's name,

As it turns out, I will not be going to Islandscape this year . I will, instead, be away with my wife, Babs, somewhere beachy and romantic . This change in plans was prompted by Grishnak being unable to run it, and the possibility that it might not come off . I regret that all our planning has come to naught, but pray that does not inhibit you from commenting and otherwise vicariously participate in our future games. Speaking of which . . .
