Looks great.
Thanks Rod.

Absolutely. Convocation and 3d6 Fireball are bad enough.
Prince of Spires wrote:A unit of 12 will work. You could also consider 10 in a 4-4-2 formation. It gives you 9 wounds before you lose attacks and 12 before you lose the ranks bonus. It's less awesome than having 12, but it's still serviceable. A bit of a budget option.
My current draft has 11.

Solid point. Armies that rely on getting behind the enemy are going to find this more of a challenge.

One more to paint then, or two just in case?

Lovely retro feel as always. The grassy base reminds me of my old battle mat. :)

Lovely as always :) It's always great to see the effect you can achieve with a simple but well executed color scheme. The won't win any awards for best painted mini, but as a unit and an army they will look cohesive and have a great effect.

Just one more to go, though you've got enough for your list with 11 now :)
For Nagarythe: Come to the dark side.
