Future Cavalry

There is a thread about future Kyrie commons so I thought I would start a future Cavalry thread.

Post your Ideas for new additions to Cavalry or debate why you think that this theme should not be continued because it leads down the road of making every general have close to having the same units (another one of my opinions).

One of my biggest hopes are Centaurs for Ullar:

3 double-hex figures
Move: 8
Range: 1
Attack: 3 (or 4)
Defense: 4
Cost: 100

Passing Swipe: Any one Centaur may take his one normal attack at any point during his normal move instead of after.

Disengage: blah blah blah (its a really cool thing)

For Vydar I'm seeing Agents on MOTORCYCLES(!):

3 double-hex figures
Move: 8
Range: 5
Attack: 2
Defense: 5
Cost: 110-130(?)

Abilities: Tough (anyone?)

For Einar? I have no idea (other than samurai on horses, but please lets try something not human).

In forest dark or glade beferned
No blade of grass shall go unturned
Let those who have the daylight spurned
Tread not where this green lamp has burned.

Re: Future Cavalry

When I read the thread title, I got the impression that it was "cavalry" from the future! Although, you do seem to touch on that with Vydar motorcycles. Post-apocalyptic biker gangs who joust for fun?

Centaurs would be rockin' as well. I've been playing the old Genesis game Shining Force lately, so ideas for centaur characters have been on my mind. I would like to see centaurs portrayed more in the way Shining Force does it (mounted knight style) than purely nature-aligned creatures. I mean, that's what dryads are for, isn't it?

For "future" cavalry, let's see some hovercycles or something.

Or how about a squadron of gruts mounted on pterodactyls! Yeah! I would definitely just swoop them around making pterodactyl noises and forget the game...

Yeah, I thought of that a while ago. I started with "let's give swog a reason for 8 move" and went from there.
Staying with that Grut theme, how 'bout Orcs on ankylosaurs with cudgels?

Re: Future Cavalry

Nice idea for the centaurs. How would elves on pegasuses(pegasese?) do I wonder?
Agents on motorbikes might be cool, but I think Hasbro will give us something different(like Tapir riding Primadons or something.)(THAT would be weird)

Honestely, I think we will get samurai on horses, or maybe even Roman cavalry. But here's what would be really cool: Mongols. Something like a Me-Burq-Sa squad with disengage or something like that.

Very funny. . I meant a full squad.
Why don't they make a four member, double hex squad I wonder?

Because they don't fit in the current packaging.

5 Defence with tough? I'd say give them charging assult or first strike.

Without bad HScape figs, there are no good ones.

Re: Future Cavalry

I know I posted the bear cavalry image some time ago, but it is still one of my favorite. Who knows, maybe we will see it some time.

Bears for Ullar:


Of course, if you don't like bears, there is always tigers for Einar:


And of course penguins -- an army, not cavalry for Vydar:

Maybe I should have added that they would have reduced defense if they had tough.

Bears for Ullar:
Bears would be scary, but the russians(?) on their backs would turn into elves I'm assuming.

Re: Future Cavalry

I'd like to see a Mongol Cavalry. They could be the first ranged cavalry as the Mongols wer skilled at shooting arrows while riding. They wouldn't be Jandar, but could fit into Utgar, Einar, and maybe Vydar. They could even have Genghis Khan as a warlord with bonding.

Cool pick, but technically isn't a swog sort of like a tiger?
