Ah I see, well I naturally have to stick up for my guild members.  I love what I have seen so far from everyone. Remember this land is yours, so you can create any type of character you wish.  Once we get the ball rolling, I have quite a few activities, assignments and positions available for those who are interested. We are a young group of warriors, with a love of battle and  drink . The rulers of the other kingdoms are old and would rather stay in safety, miles behind their armys. Not ours! Avalonia has the finest warriors, a ruler whos gonna lead his army right into the thick of battle and come out victorious, we have the grandest buildings, and the largest supply of beer in Historia! Mighty Avalonia! Take no prisoners!

I, Zakon GoldBlade the Necromancer(also a war wizard and artificer), pledge my life, my wealth, my armies living and dead to Avalonia. I control the Cube of Nevan. It is a legendary artifact of great power. It's power will remain a secret for now. When I ride into battle, I do so through the eyes of my eternal champion. This keeps me safe and in control of battle. I am a master of many ancient magics and tinkering up weapons of death and destruction. I keep my ear to the ground and my eye in the sky. I bury living. I raise dead. I am wealthy beyond reason. I rule my own Dwarven tribe. I brew up a wicked cauldron of beer. I will tell no more.

:sceptic: ... what about chivalry?

Yes, chivalry is the code we follow, and we set an example to the other lands. Only a fool seeks battle, but only a greater fool would march to battle half-hearted. We strive for peace, but if we have to go to war, we go with a lust to fight and dominate. Our enemies would not show mercy to us and if its unavoidable, then we will show no mercy to them.

Keep up the great fig designs everyone, looking real good! It looks as though we will have many sections to our army. Maybe different colour schemes for various parts of the army? Feel free to voice your thoughts on how different sections of the army should look.

I think the elf torso fits perfect for us. The sand green arms and the dark green torso. A great comination if you ask me! I have these torsos mainly as my cavalry.

The new dragon knights make up my infantry.

Our Guild is looking more and more powerful! Fun to see different kind of races in Avalonia!

I think that this is the right approach, different colour schemes to represent different clans that rally to your banner. If dark green is the primary colour of Avalonia, it would make sense to try to combine other colours with it in our standards to represent our allegiance.

I totally agree with you with the idea of using elf torsos and dragon knight torsos for our royal army.

But,

I have also another idea.
I am thinking that every  of our guild may have their state/city/province with their banner color. Some of you may know about the Empire in Warhammer fantasy. In warhammer there are "states" under the rule of one Empire. Of course in real medieval era in real life there are similar ruling systems across the world.

So i am suggesting that every guild member build at least one (or more) royal army unit/s with darkgreen/sand green minifigur parts and in addition to these royal units: state troops with colors depending on their statebanner colors.  

With this idea we will be able to recruit more troops with crown, lion, old lion, monarch, crusader torsos.

What do you think about the idea?

I agree with this, but I think the Dragon Knights should be considered the basic grunts and the Elves should make up a more elite commando/scout-type division. Then there could easily be mounted, ranged, and melee versions of both armies, making it easier for new builders to buy some of the Dragon Knights from TLG and quickly form any type of warriors.

Sounds like a great idea. The elf is not the most common figure out there.. and not the cheapest...

I see what your getting at but if we do this, wouldn't it be going against the whole flag thing? The issue doesn't hurt my stuff at all since I'm just going to reanimate and zombify my old figures under one flag. I'm down for what ever makes things easier for Avalonians but let's not copy what any of the other guilds are doing. Let us be leaders not followers.

I agree with both of you here. The sand green/elf combo looks great, I have also been testing out a similar design, here's a rough pic.
Posted Image
Ive used dark gray torso's and added sand green arms and dark green legs. This is cheaper, as the Gray torsos are very common where as the elf ones are not.
I agree with BrickDocter that the elf designs should be a special elite scout force. The design I've used could always be used as the Capital's garrison or something like that. I also agree that it would be great to have other divisions of warriors from different city's/areas that have each have their own uniform. This will help out those that don't have many sand green mini-fig parts. Also like Brickdocter said, don't forget that the current Dark Green Dragon Knights from the Kingdoms line fit very well and suit our look and feel, plus they are easy to get hold of. What ever colour designs you come up with for different army divisions just remember that they should be marching under a dark green flag at least. The way I see it, is that out of the two shades of green, Dark green is the primary one, and sand green is secondary. So as long as there is at least a Dark Green flag flying, everything else is fine.

Welcome friend, this is awesome!  I was hoping to see some civilian tradesmen for our land. Farming is a very important here, the warriors may protect our land, but its the farmers who grow the crops they need to live on. There is much rich farmland to be found here, and plenty of hills.

I pledge my troops from the city of Acre in the defense of Avalonia.  Surrounded by water on three sides, we feel our walled city is better suited for the capital then the current one, but that is a fight best saved for after the defeat of our common enemy...

I have substantial amounts of cavalry, archers, and infantry, but beware, my white bearded gnome and his 7 dwarves.  They are a match for any hero and his bodyguard.

I started building some land out last knight with a few basic structures so when we get our build orders from up high we can get somethings out there quickly to compete with the other guilds. Do you know when these build orders will come in?

Also, I like the idea of having a unified color, not every fig could have the colors but at least a representative (or leader) from the main Avalonian guild.
