Hi all,

So the digital rules have been out there for a fair few hours now. Surely some of you have started to cook up your retinues. Lets see what you have got.

Im just about to head out to work and will share mine in the reply later.

George.

If anyone is looking for inspiration regarding shield patterns I would recommend a paperback called Feudal Coats of Arms by Joseph Foster. Don’t know how easy it is to get hold of as I picked up a 1995 copy when painting a Crusader army. 
It has hundreds of coats of arms descriptions and b/w illustrations of shield patterns.

Is this allowed? Can you have different equipment in a group?

@tonius it seems not.  I was too a certain degree basing it on the packs available.  Foot knights 2 was the knights I intended to use (minus a single sword).  Looks like I need to go through and make a few hand/weapon swaps to be sure I have a minimum of 3 with each armour and weapon option.  I think knights 2 is the only pack with a mace...

@who-am-i   I was wondering the same thing.  The Barons War Foot Knights and Sergeants have a mixture of weapons and the spearmen have a variety of body armour or helmets.  I think what I will do is pick a basic profile for the group as a whole even though the models may depict a mix of weapons.

I'm hopefully playing my first game this weekend.  I've gone for an approximately 600 point retinue just to start off with and learn the rules.

 

Falkes De Breaute - commander, mounted

4 x Mounted Knights with medium shields

6x irregular spearmen with padded armour

6x green spearmen

6x regular crossbowmen with padded armour

6x regular sergeants with large shields

veteran sergeant with mail and two handed axe - commander

 

I'll expand the retinue when I've had a game or two.

@batjer I know, I had to get 3 packs for enough maces.  In the 3 months since, I’ve used most of all the axes too.... now if there was a pack with falchion in it... 😉
