Well, we were throwing around the "show me your army" posts, so in response to this new threat, I posted an army - not the army, but an army. Stay out of my woods!

When our scouts reported that there was an allied army moving into Kaliphlin, one attempting to sever Eastgate and its protectorates from the rest of Kaliphlin, we had to act quickly. Second Lord of Eastgate Petera MacLean dispatched a raven to Barqa where he had Deregar the Bull gathering supplies and recruiting to join Dugal's army protecting Queenscross. Deregar was ordered with his personal guard, Abu'dun (Just returned from a meeting of the Great Generals) and a squad of Kaliphlin Guardsmen to meet the incoming threat. Most were given fresh mounts from the famed horse breeder of Barqa - Ime'r Koln, his precious white steeds are coveted by any lancer.

We find it odd that in a time when Revolword's troops ravage the countryside and prepare for assaults on various guild capitals, a force from Avalonia would march into Kaliphlin and attempt to stop our commerce and troop movements. Still, Abu'dun, the great diplomat, has come with a message of peace. His message to the leader of Zakon Goldblade's eternal warriors:

From the hand of Petera Maclean, Second Lord of Eastgate:

"We have heard of your unit's presence on Kaliphlin soil, and that you have begun to turn back merchants. We disagree with your actions, but we wish no bloodshed today. Our armies would be better served attacking together at the armies that threaten Queenscross and Albion, then attacking one another. I ask you to cancel your decree and to let commerce in this stressed time commence as in the previous few years. Please send your eternal guards where they are needed, the war against the elemental threat. My men under my cousin, Deregar, will escort you to the border of Kaliphlin, shall you wish. However, your army will pass no further than the point you meet this vanguard.

The Wither Woods have long been under the protection of Eastgate, and GEAR Company's vested interests in the economic industries of the region is paramount to the economies of Eastgate, Kaliphlin, and parts of Avalonia. Further commerce should commence immediately, and the region should be spared warfare if at all possible in these troubled times.

I hope that we can see peace today, but know that the sword of Kaliphlin is strong, and we as a people will resist foreign invasion if necessary.

-Peace, and good day.

Petera MacLean."

I like all those your fast solution to the problem :laugh:

I also like the fact that you use diffent factions in the army of Kaliphlin, just like I do :laugh:

And those ruins give a very nice touch to the MOC!

Looks good! The ruin lifts the moc!

I do think that you could cover up the background. The whole moc would look much better without the disturbing things in the background.

I know. Unfortunately, I am limited for space right now and I still have not found a good solution to solid background at this house. If that gameboard in the background wasn't set up, I probably could have put up a sheet or something, but without disturbing the Axis and Allies game that we have running, I was without an option. Also, it did not allow me to use a better Macro lens. And, a little bit of it was that I wanted to get it up fast to keep the action going.

I could have used a larger all uniform army, but I think Kaliphlin is more diverse than anyone else, and it shows in who shows up wearing what. Although Eastgate is not one of the desert cities, I still think it is diverse as its sister cities.

Plus, I had to give Kai something to update about Deregar! hahaha j/k Kai, keep up the good work!
