Because I couldn't wait, I'm going to go ahead and jump into the next part of army building:
Setting Unit Types
Alright, you've got a leader, banner/colors (or both), a home, an army size, and divisions within the army. It's time to pull everything together!
Now, before you go setting units, let's talk about Army Themes. An army theme is a broad description of your army. It should be something rather simple, no greater than a sentence.
- The Black Falcons are an army of knights and soldiers.
- The Forest Elves are an army of foresters and scouts.
- The Arcane Collective is an army of mages and sorcerers.
The theme will ultimately dictate what your regular units will be. If you decided to go with the Black Falcons example, your regular units should consist of more knight like figures. It a group of mages appeared as regular units, that would just be weird!
Once the theme is set, it's time to to decide what unit types your regulars will have. I'll go ahead and reuse the Black Falcons from the last post.
Special units are there to allow you to counter weakness, expand on strength, and add flavor to an otherwise generic army.
So, let me go ahead and follow the example!
