FORCES OF FANTASY is a J Volume compilation of all the
information you will need to choose and play your own fantasy
army. Aspiring leaders of men... and of those creatures which are
other than men...read on!

The first volume - FORCES OF FANTASY - comprises of lhe lists


of Fighting Battalions. It is divided into individual lists of racial
types. For example you will find a complete list for Wood Elves,
Dwarves, Orcs - and so on for all the major warrinq races. you are
able to choose troops from any one list to assemble a Battalion of
troops of that race. Using as many Battalions as you wish you can
assemble a fantasy army of any size, and you may select Battalions
f rom either the same or dif f erent list,s in order to create a
powerful mixed army.

In the second volurne - FIGHTING FANTASY BATTLES - you will


find all of the information you require to set up battles, including
battlefield encounters, tactical hints, and additional rules to cover
chariots, seige equipment and buildings. We have included a full
selection of fantasy shield patterns and relevant uniform details
for each of the Armies described described in the first volume -
together with organisation details and painting and modelling tips
where appropriat,e.

The third volume - ARCANE MAGICKS - provides players with new


r"nagical weapons, monsters, potions, spells and equipment.. Rules
are included for enchanted weaponry including power Weapons and
Rune-weapons, as well as new monster types such as the Hydra and
Chaos Chimera.
A Battalion usually consists of a number of regements to the
cornbined value of I000 Points. Battalions generally include at
least one personality model who will act as the Battalionrs
Commander. When, in Warhammer, we speak of a BatLalion, then /\
we mean simply 1000 points of troops chosen from the lists that
follow. Purists will note that this use of the word Battalion does /)

An army consists of three Battalions. Select each Battalion using


the appropriate list. Your army ean consist of I BatLalions of the
same creatures, or you may choose I different Battalions. The only
restrict.ion is that you may not mix Good and Evil aliqned
Battalions inLo the same Army.
You must then appoint I of the Battalion Commanders to be your
General, the model which will represent you. J Battalions will give
you a fairly sizeable battle. If you like, you can fight smaller
battles, either with less Battalions, or with smaller 500 point For example, one possible army could consist of I Battalion of
Battalions; alternatively you can fight huge battles with as many Night Goblins, I Battalion of Red Goblins and I Battalion of
Battalions as you like. The points values are not intended to be Undead. A tolal of 1000 Points worth of troops. An army to oppose

of theWest
The men of the Kingdoms of the West live in well ordered
communities, with large towns and cities. Their society is highly
and rigidly structured on a feudal basis; Lords, Knights, Townsfolk
and lowly Peasants. ln charge of the each country is the King; who
keeps a court consisting of the most valiant, chivalrous, cultured
and bigoted Nobles.
The various Kingdoms are different to a degree, and fight amongst
themselves when not otherwise engaged, Of particular note are the
Religious Orders; warrior monks who belong to one of the Templar
or Hospitaller organisations. They are very dedicated individuals
with a burning hatred of foreigners in goneral and non-westerners
in particular.

The chief enemy of the Kingdoms of the West are the Easteners
(Godless Heathens who deserve to be cut down mereilessly) and the
Norse (Unshaven Barbarians who deserve to be cut down
mercilessly).

rfs
Dwarfs are not a numerous people, they live a long time but
multiply very slowly. They are aldo very clannish and live in small
extended family communities, these often take the form of
inaccessible castles or underground holds. They are powerful
wamiors and much feared and respected, even by Goblins.

Dwarfs are proud and often very short tempered. Dwarf history
relates many occasions when Dwarfish indignation at some petty
slight resulted in raciat feuding or costly war, One sueh occasion
was when Wulfrun Willowhand was slain in a drunken brawl with
Grom rThe Paunch of the Misty Mountainr, a Goblin of especially ill
repute. The resultant feud lasted for half a century and became
known as the Goblin Wars, this was a costly affair which ended in
the destruction of the remaining Goblin armies at the Battle of
Mad Dog Pass. This list typifies the Dwarf armies of those times.

Gnornes are smaller relatives of Dwarfs, they have a similar
cultural background and share many of the same character traits ae
their larger cousins. For instance, they speak a dialeet version of
the Common Dwarf Language, and share many Dwarfish Folk
Beliefs. Dwarfs and Gnomes feature greatly in each others mythic
background - the Dwarfe seeing the Gnomes as troublesome and
mischievous, the Gnomes regarding Dwarfs as oafish and stupid.
Gnomes can be very short tempered and difficult to get on with,
although they are not basically evil. It has been known for Gnomes
to imprison humans, Dwarfs and other adventurers that upset them;
they are particularly sensitive about their squeaky voices.

Gnomes live in underground caverns like Dwarfs. They HATE

' - -ruilfr'E--= - High Elves are related very closely to Sea Elves - they are part
the same Elf kindred, and are separated now only by choiee of
habitation. While the Sea Elves maintain their white towem by the
sea, the High Elves have moved away from the coast and built
mighty eities of stone, cities which hold sway over vast inland
empires. The power and the technical skill of the High Elves is
without equal. Perhaps because of their achievements the High
Elves have become somewhat arrogant - even towards their fellow
Elves, and especially the Wood Elves who they regard as rustic and
boorish.

The High Elves claim kingship over all of the Elf Races - and by
means of their wealth and influence they maintain an effective
control of the other Elf kingdoms. They have a professional
soldiery and a, Guard elite as well as a strong Warrior class. Elf
armies are always well supplied and equipped, and the Elf kings are
always ready to use force of arms to back up their expansive
foreign policies.

Many of the larger humanoid cneatures live solitary
lives or live in small roving groups. Often these creatures are
handicapped by stupidity or psychopathic criminality, and for these
reasons Giants cannot really be considered as 'armiesr - but they
often band togelher with other evil types to assault passing
merchants and travelling parties.

One popular trick, developed by an unusually Qriqht Giant, concerns

Goblins
There are many different tribes of Goblin, ancl these fail into
several broad types. The Great Goblins form one of these
they are characterised by their sizei large thickset faces and squat
bodies. They also ride giant boars and, of course, cannot stand the
sight of other Goblins. A sub-species of their kind are the Lesser
CoUtins which have similar features but are smaller. Lesser Goblins
live alongside their larger brethren, usually as slaves or social
inferiors.

All Goblins are naturally evil creatures who dislike each other
almost as much as they hate Elves and Men. Because of this Goblin
armies are sometimes difficult to control, and often the whole
course of a battle ean depend on the ability of the individual Goblin
Regimentel Leaders to keep their troops in check.

Goblins have always presented a threat to settlements of Ment


Elves end Dwarves. T6 meet this threat these so-called 'goodly
peoples' sometimes collaborate to Purge an area of Goblins.
Fortunately Goblins are very prolific and can regain their lost
lation very quickly.

years past. They have little respect for other typee of Goblinl or
anything else for that matter. They are by far ttp moet evil

Unlike other creatures Half-Orcs are not easily destinguishable as belonging to a
definile species. An otherwise nolmal Human can often display 'Orcish' features,
whilst the opposite is true of Orcs. Why this should be so is uncertain. It has been
suggested that cross-breeding between the species has been accomplished in the
distant past by means of evil, Perverted magic; and that traces of mixed blood
remain in many otherwise normal crea[ures. The individuals popularly recognised as
Half-Orcs are extreme examples of this kind, Men, or Orcs, whose physiques are in-
between that of the two race3. Half-Orcs usually settle in their own small
eommunities, living away from both Humanity and Orc-kind. They are by natural
disposition viotent and mean hearted, and this generally r6sults in ihem beinq

The Chaos Battalion is potentialty the most powerful of tabletop
forces; its eldritch potency and awesome strangeness makes it a
difficult and unpredictable enemy indeed. By its very nature a
Chaos force is always a distinctly rone-off' formation. There is no
such thing as a ready-made Chaos Army, players wishing to general
the Chaos Hordes will have to assemble their armies after
generating their Champions, followers and appropriately weird
Chaos Creatures, using the various charts contained in our arcane
REALM OF CHAOS publication,

Though we intend manufacturing various Chaos types for your


convenience, a certain amount of modelling and eonversion work on
your part will probably be desirable to give you a complete tailor-
made Horde.

For this reason, we have a convention whereby the same Creatures


and Champions, once provided as complete models, may be used
time and time again by their owner. The only exception to this is
the CHAOS GENERAL, once he, she or it is finally and imevoeably
dead (after attempting an after battle saving throw on the injuries
chart in Vol. I of the main rules), he must be rolled up again. If the
army includes a Necromancer, either as part of the Chaos Horde,
or as an ally commanding his own Battalion, then the General may
return as an Undead Champion of Chaos.

do not worship a documented God (Khorne, Slaaneesh, Nurgle

Demonic Beast of their own creation approved by the GM.

Warhorses could possibly be ridden by these strange warriors. A
normal Warhorse would be far too timid, and would flee in

One particular problem with employing undead troops is that they
have an inherantly unstable existence in the living world, and this
stablity may be undermined outside of the creatures host
enviroment. Skeletons, for example, are powerful foes amongst
grave yards and death pits, but in the open and under the living sun
they may crumble into dust. Similarly Wraiths may exist within the
confines of a tomb - but are dispersed in daytight. Almost, it is as

Liehes cause Terror in creatures lhey attack, and Fear in all living
creatures who can see them, except friendly Evil Wizards or
Necromancers. Test just once for Temor - before the first round of
combat. Test just once for Fear when the Liche is first sighted.
There is no need to keep testing every turn. Friendly living troops

DESTROYING FORTIFICATIONS AND BUILDING5

When you have played Warhammer a few times, and you are
familiar with the methods of play, you might wish to introduce
fortifications and buildings into youn games. This really adds a
whole new dimension and can form the basis for a scenario - with
one side trying to defend a village or fort and lhe other side trying
i\-
to destroy it.

Buildings and fortif ications may be damaged by hits with a


Strength Attack of 5 or more, but not less. Large creatures or
monsters may try to pull buildings or walls apart if their Strength
is 5 or more, they have as many Attacks as normal and hit
automatically.
Before your llame decide how may 'Kills' each of your buildings is
going to have. A typical cottage type building could have J Kills' a
small shed I Kill, a stone building 5 Kills. Walls and large buildings
should be done in sections, with each 4" section having a fixed
number of Kills - usually 5 for a stone wall.

All buildings have a Toughrcss of F. Stone walls andbuildings have a


5,5 Saving Throw against each Kill caused. Wooden stockades and
improvised barricades have a Toughness of E.

Kills scored against buildings must be recorded. When lhe building


has suffered its full amount of Kills it is destroyed, or that section
of wall falls down. Troops either inside or on top of f alling
buildings automatically receive I Killr with normal Saving Throws.
You might wish to have special destroyed models of your buildings
and wall sections. Alternatively you ean use pieces of black card to
place over fallen walls, or on top of destroyed buildings.

MUSTERING THE ARMY

To fiqht a fantasy battle you do not need hundreds and hundreds of


expensive models - all you really need is a little effort, imagination
and an eye for the unusual. Our own eollections of models were
built up over a period of years, adding a Regiment every few
months. Certainly it is a good idea to collect one Regiment at a
time, painting each model carefully and finishing off wibh the
Leader and Standard Bearer. Many people have asked us about
eolour schemes and shield patterns, my usual reply is that in a
fantasy world you paint your models how you like. This still goes!
The following lists of suggested colour schemes and shield'pabterns,
are just that; a host of ideas, but not mandatory by any means. In
particular I find it difficult to invent shield patterns, especially
after I've done a dozen or more, so I know that this list will be
)-
useful. _ t

COLLECTING MODELS FOR WARGAMES ,,

The easiest way to assemble a fantasy army is to first decide what


sort of army yourre going to collect. There are lots of different
types of creatures available but most people have an idea of which
troops they would like to command. Goblins are popular, Dwarfs
and Undead are also widely collected - or perhaps you see yourself
at the head of a mighty Elven host, or leading wild and drunken
Norse Warriors. Collect a Regiment at a time. Regiments can be of d-
any size, but between 20 and f0 is the usual number. Skirmishing
troops are easier to use in Regiments of l0 or less. Each Regiment
can include a special Leader model and Standard Bearer. You can
add character to your Regiments by convertinq your own leaders
using a basic model and lots of Milliput to add cloaks, extra
weapons, and unusual personal characteristics. i

ARMIES - ORGAMSATIOIq TACTICS At{) PAINTING
The lists that follow show you one way in which you can assemble
and paint a fantasy army. Each of the main creature types is dealt
with in turn.
CHAOS

Organisation Chaos Regiments may be of from 15-24 models for


most infantry, with monsters and other troops in
units of a convenient size.

Tactics With such a diversity of troops the Chaos general


may adapt his tactics freely as he sees fit. Most of
the troops are better than average fighters' which
favours a straight forward advance and attack.
Ample support can be obtained from any of the
monster types, either fighting alongside
conventional units or attacking already engaged
units in the rear.

Paintirtg Chaos troops wear black. Some individuals, however


can wear clothing of any colour, even garish
patterns or wierd and frightening pictoral scenes
can appear. Armour for the majority is black' but
can be coloured, may glow (flouescent paint) or
change colour from time to time. Alternatively
armour can be highly decorated with gems or
precious metal. With some Chaotic mutations
armour, clothing and flesh may become physically
intermixed so that armour takes on flesh tints whilst
flesh becomes metallic.

Chaos Beastmen are often pale grey with pink inside


ears, nostrils, and corners of their eyes. Weapons
can be any metallic colour, black, red or white.
Shields may be any colour, some can be metallic.

I5
MEN OF TFIE WEST

Organisation Mounted troops are organised inbo Regiments of J-0

W9WW
men, with infantry in unils of 2O-24.

Tactics The main aim of the armies of the West is to get the
armoured Knights into battle as soon as possible - a
wild and disorganised charge usually results. More
learned tacticans prefer to hold back t.he cavalry
until the enemy have been softened up with bow
fire.
Painting Armour is steel - silver or steel paint with a thin
wash of black gives an excellent impression of steel
plate. Chain Mail is dark steel or black. Clothing
can be leather, reddish browns, black or red in
colour. Other clothing can be virlually any colour.
Weapons are of steel with natually coloured wooden
parts. Knights carry lances which can be coloured
or striped in any bright shadc. Shields and banners
follow strict heraldric patterns, these can be very
colourful indeed. Knights always wear their own
badge or arms, retainers often carry the same arms
on their shields, or else some simplified form of it.

Tactics
themselves f or each battle. Accordingly their
Regiments can vary from as few as 5 lo as many as
J0 men. Cavalry RegimenLs and monks are generally
organised in smaller units of between 5 and 10
models.

Samurai are not great tacticians and favour a


straight forward advance with ample support from

OE-I
missile and mounted units. Martial arts monks and
Oriental Heroes are very tough fighters indeed, and
always form the spearhead of any attack.

Painting Oriental armour is often laequered as protection


again the warm, damp tropical weather. Armour
treated in this way can be black, red or dark red.
Other armour can be black iron or steel. Clothing
for Samurai is often very elaborate, with a variety
of colourful shades such as red, blue, green and
yellow. Cloth can be patLerned or have f loral
designs. Non-Samurai will wear more unifotm
clothing of duller colours, white, off-white, dark-
red, blue or brown.

Shields often bear the badge or sign of the warrior


lord commanding the troops. Banners are oblong
shaped and taller than they are wide - typical
designs are shown. Colours can be anything, light
colours such as white, yellow and pale greens are
common, usually with black outline designs in
Oriental script or an abstract form.

Weapons may be highly engraved, inlaid or


lacquered. Wood is always Iacquered red or black,
sometimes both.

L7
MEN OF THE EAST

Organisation Easterners are organised into quite formal


Regiments, with a good permanent military
structure. Their units sizes are usually between 20
and f0 for infantry, with skirmishers operating in
smaller units of between 5 and 12 men. Cavalrv
Regiments vary between 10 and 20 men.

Tactics Easterners have so many different kinds of troops


available that their tactics may be varied from one
battle to another. Great use can be made of the
unarmoured horsemen, who are able to skirmish
against enemy formations whilst waiting to
penetrate their lines and attack from the rear.
Camels and Elephants have their place too.
Elephants make excellenb battering rams which can
be charged against solid blocks of enemy troops.
Elephants can be supponted by the Arab infantry,
whilst the Dervishers rush ahead to tie up the
advance enemy units.

Painting Easterners wear white or off-white clothing, with


turbans often of a uniform colour within a
Regiment. Some units may wear coloured rpoverty
patches', these are squarish patches of brightly
coloured cloth sewn on more or less at random over
the tunics and trousers. Armour is often worn
underneath the tunic, but where visible is steel,
oecasionally with bronze, copper or gold decoration.
Regimental officers and some other personalities
can wear black clothing, as do some of the desert
tribemen.

Weapons are of steel. Shields are generally of one


solid colour, sometimes with decorative tassles
made out of horse hair and dyed red. Spear shafts
and bows are natural wood colour. Banners will be
any solid eolour and usually carry either a single NORSEMEN
device in a contrasting colour, or else reams and

and fight in either one or two units.

Tactics Hack and slay. Norsemen fight best when committed


to a rapid attack and as much bloodshed as possible.

Paintirq Norsemen have skins bronzed by the Northern sun.


They are also a very healthy lot, which they claim is
due entirely to their high roughage diet and constant
exercise. Clothing is of a natural colour, commonly
browns or dull shades of red, blue or green. Bright
colours are considered effeminate. Hair colour can
be red, reddish brown or blond. Most northerners are
heavily bearded. Weapons and armour are steel,
shields can be natural wood or painted in some
strong colour. Shield emblems are often of a
strange intertwined animal style, or simple parti-
colour shield divisions.

Banners are usually red, and have either no device


or an animal motif. War-horns are carried by some
troops.

Norse ship models are diff icult lo obtain


commercially, as the only one available in plastic
seems to have disappeared from the shops.
Cardboard can be used to produce a workmanlike
model, dowelling and paper can be used to make
masts and sails whilst thin dowelling or plastic rod
makes passable oars.

l8
DWARFS

Organisation Dwarfs are tribal - with numerous family sub-


groupings. In battle Regiments are formed from
family groups, or occasionally from certain
localities. A typical Regiment will be of 20 Dwarfs,
Guards units are more likely to be in Regiments of
I0 and Militia can be of any size. Mounted Dwarfs
will be in Regiments of 5.
Tactics Tactics usually consist of a steady advance covered
by supporting missile fire. In combat Dwarfs are
powerful, but the cavalry are less reliable and so are
usually reserved for protecting flanks and keeping
enemy cavalry at bay.

Paintirrg Dwarfs have wetl tanned and ruddy complextions,


often with reddish hair. Their clothing is varied,
they favour fairly bright colours and like ornate
patterns, or interwoven designs. Bright blues, greens
and reds predominate. Shields may be painted, red,
black and blue being popular, or overlaid with gold
or silver. Shield designs are often metallic,
sometimes even Mithril - whieh is a silver coloured
metal many more times valuable than gold.

Dwarf standards are likely to be great family


heirlooms and often very old. Banners can be of any
strong colour or even black, with the family badge
or motto enblazoned on it in Dwarf runes.

DARK ELVES
Organisation Dark Elves retain a constant vigil amongst their
dark wood-land paths and mountain passes. As a
consequence all Dark Elves belong to one of the
Regiments, although there is no uniformity of
equipment or clothing. A typical Regiment will be
of between l0 and 20 men, with mounted Regiments
of 5 men.
Tactics Dark Elves are mighty warriors - they are cruel and
strong with none of the reticent sophistieation or
moralising of the High Elves. In battle they form
well ordered ranks and attack against the weakest
part of the enemy army.

Paintirrg Armour and weapons are black iron, sometimes with


decorative metal work of steel or bronze. Clothing
is always dark, black, dark greens, blues or browns.
Dark Elves are paler of skin colour than any other
elf types, and their eyes may be red due to their
living away from direct sunlight. Standards and
penants are black, and may have ornate gold or
silver designs. Shields are ornate with gold and
silver engraving. Witch Elves have masses of
unkempt black hair, which they often dye or streak
with wild and insane colours.

Dark Elves have a universal battle cry in the High


Elven language. A

Organisation High Elves are by far the most sophisticated of the


Elves and their organisation tends to reflect this. In
. peace time the sole troops under arms are the
Guardsmen, organised into Regiments of 10 men. In
times of war the civilian population is drafted into a
number of the traditional but essentially amateur
fighting Regiments. The Leadership of these
Regiments is hereditary - but in no way reflects
military ability. Size varies between 5 and 20
models, cavalry Regiments are no larger than 12
models.

Tactics Tactics vary, the High Elves are great theorists of


the military art but in practice they do best by a
quick advance and as much hacking and slaying as
possible. Delay can be disasterous, as the needless
and pointless manouevres which nearly resulted in
defeat at the Battle of the Burning Temple proved.
This battle was one of the many skirmishes fought
as part of the religious persecutions of Jeon
Staleord, the infamous evangelical Elf Lord.

Paintirg High Elves dress in very fine and expensive clothing


which can be of any colour, or richly embroidered.
Grey, white, blue and green are highly favoured, or
any bright colour. Regiments may have identically
coloured spear or lance penants and helmet plumes.

22
SEA ELVES

Organisation Sea Elves, like Wood Elvesr are permanently


organised into local patrol groups - which form the
basis for Regiments in war time. Regiments are
between 12 and 16 men in strength, cavalry between
5 and 10.

Tacties Sea Elves favour a slow advance, hopefully backed


up by archers and covered by cavalry. Because Sea
Elf armies are small they avoid remaining
stationary, so their enemies cannot gang up against
them.

Painting Sea Elves dress in solidr but bright colours


especially blue, but also red, green and grey. They
wear steel armour and their weapons are of keen,
bright steel. Spear shafts and bows may be left
natural wood or painted in a regimental colour'
which will be reproduced in the helmet plumes and
shields.

Shields may be elaborately embossed or brightly


painted; blue predominating but also redr green, and
parti-coloured. Spears and lances have pennons in
the regimental colour and the Regimental Standard
will be very elaborate with intricate embroidery and
careful needle-work, all executed in the fastidious
manner of Elves.

WOOD ELVES

Organisation All Wood Elves belong to one of the tribal troops


whose main peace time duties involve patrolling the
border lands and intercepting unwanted travellers'
itinerant merchants and beggers. In war these same
troops form the Regiments that make up the Wood
Elf armies. Infantry are organised into Regiments of
between 12 and 15 men, whilst horsemen usually
fight in Skirmish Order and in Regiments of between
5 and I0 men.

Tactics Wood Elves are great bowmen and usually f ight


delaying actions until they can pick off the most
threatening or least stable enemy troops. Once
engaged in combat the horsemen take up positions
on the flanks of the infantry or behind to fend off
attackers.

Painting Wood Elves favour bright natural colours' although


they have no such things as uniforms in the strict
sense. Clothing is often greenr grey or natural
browns such as yellow ochre or tawny.

Weapons are usually left natural wood shades' with


bright steel blades, spear tips and armour. Arrows
are sometimes red and have white or grey flights.

Elven shields are occasionally covered in sheet


silver or gold, or else painted brightly with the
regimental emblem. Elvish standards are often
elaborately embroidered with gold and silver thread.

GIANTS
$

Organisation Nope! none at all. Giant.s are sometimes


encountered in families.

Tactics Not a hope. Giant.s like to blunder about causino as


much damage as possible.

Painting Giants are a similar colour Lo humans, they are


generally well tanned and hairy. Hair colour can be
anything, but a good layer of dirl usually tones down
light or bright colours. Clothing is usually plain, in
some earthy shade. Remember, Giants are not very
sanitary, so all clothing will be at least. grubby.
Bronze, iron and steel are all used for weapons and
ornamentation.

Giant weapons and heads can be affixed using an


epoxy lype glue, super glue is O.K. but nol so good.
The large size of the Iarger giants gives the
modeller considerable scope for a special paint job.
Extra detailing can be put on using a very fine brush
or drawing pen and ink, for example scars, stitches
and tatoos. Because these castings are quite robust
a certain amount of conversion can be attempted,
arms can be carefully repositioned, or sacks and
other baggage can be added r_rsing modelling putty.

GNOMES

Organisation Gnomes are organised into family groups in a similar


way to Dwarfs. Typical unit sizes are between l0
and 20 men, with Cavalry and unarmoured troops in
smaller units of between 5 and 10.
Taetics Gnomes are underground dwellers and fight many of
their battles in cave systems and tunnels. In the
open they prefer to find a good defendable position
and hold it, supported by crossbows and other
missile fire. They are quite prepared to advance and
fight once the enemy has become discouraged.
Painting Gnomes are a very dark skin shade, their hair may
be blaek or occasionally fair or red. Armour and
weapons are steel, sometimes ornamented with gold
or other precious metals. Shields may be any strong
bright colour or blaek, usually with a family devic6
in cgntrasting colour. The same device mav be
repeated on clothing and banners.

24
GREAT GOBLINS

Organisation Tribal organisation prevails; with local Chiefs


leading individual Regiments. Regiments can be of
any size, but 20 is usual.

Goblin Rider Regiments are of between 5 and 10


men.

Tactics Cavalry operate as outriders, foraging and scouting;


and in battle advance to secure important positions,
cover the infantry and generally make a nuisance of
themselves.

Lesser Goblins are not hardy warriors, but are useful


scouts and cannon fodder. Their small size make
them handy for assaulting houses and tunnels.

Paintirg Great Goblins are a ruddy-flesh colour, although this


varies from tribe to tribe. Some tribes practice
tatooing or the application of white or red warpaint,
usually in stripes over the face and arms. This helps
identification of Regiments in battle.
Clothing tends to be dull, black, brown or dark red.
Weapons are steel, armour can be steel or black iron
ff^nr&,
and helmets are steel or bronze.

Shields can be quite elaborate with carefully painted


tribal motives - white, black, red and blue being
popular colours.

RED GBLINS
Organisation Red Goblins are relatively tough f ighters for
Goblins. They operate in Regiments of 20 men.
Red Goblin Wolf Riders are organised into small
Regiments of 5 troopers in Skirmish Order - usually
armed with bows.

Tactics Red Goblins are great exponents of 'hit and run'


taotics. The Wolf Riders ride up to within bow range
of their enemy, fire their arrows and retire out of
charge reach. Once the main forces of the Goblin
Infanbry are engaged the Wolf Riders ride round the
enemy and attack them in the back.

Painting Red Goblins are a deep, red-brown colour. Their


clothes t.end to be black or brown or sometirnes red,
with little actual uniformity. Shields and weapons
are usually black, and even mail armour can be
black or very dark grey. Each Regiment has its own
shield pattern, standard and war-cry. Shields and
standards ofLen portray runic inscriptions in the
base Goblin tongue, and generally consist of obscene
anecdotes about the personal habits of Dwarfs. War-
cries follow the same general pattern.
3.tc
Wolves are usually blaek, although some can be
brown or grey and Leaders can ride white or even
albino wolves.

NIGHT GOBLINS

Organisation Night Goblins are not really qreat warriors. In fact


Night Goblin commanders spend most of their time
watching their troops exercise a series of routs,
retneats and Eactical withdrawals. To make up for
their shortcomings Night Goblins are organised into
large Regiments of l0 on more troops - sometimes
with I0 extra bowmen in Skirmish order.
Night Goblin cavalry are less effeetive than Red
Goblins, but can still cause much damage atLacking
engaged enemy in the rearl advancing rapidly to
cover key points and protecting the sides and rear of
foot Regiments. Regiments consist of between 5 and
8 men.

Tactics Night Goblins have no real idea of tactics. Their


only role on the battlefield is to die in droves, this
they invariably accomplish.
The most effective ploy practiced by Night Goblins
is !o mob the enemy with as many ttoops as possible
as soon as they can. Lesser Night Goblins make
useful support troops, being cheap to equip with
bows and shields.

Painting Night Goblins are a pale, greenish flesh colour. They


wear black or brown clothes, with the occasional
qreen or red cloak or hood. Weapons are usually
black or wood painted red. Most metal is black iron,
with a little brass used for small items such as belt
buckles or ear-rings.

Like Red Goblins each Regiment has its own shield


pattern, standard and war-cry. Shields and standards
often portray runic inscriptions in the base Goblin
tongue or tribal motives, such as rats, eyes, or
abstract designs. War-cries tend to lack conviction.

HALFLINGS

Organisation Halflings dislike organisation of any kind. They like


food, however, and military administration is
dictated by the numbers of Halflings that can be
easily fed at one time. Regiments are of between 20
and l0 individuals with mounted Regiments in 5's.

Tactics No Halfling has ever thought about t,actics in his


life. Military campaigns generally revolve around
important stategic positions, such as graneries,
bakeries and ale houses. On the battlefield Halflings
try to oecupy buildings and then stay in them - using
the upper stories as missile platforms.

Painting Halflings are very fond of colours that, they describe


as rbright and cheerful'. Garish greens and yellows
are common, with blues and browns also appearing -
sometimes on the same garment. Blacks, dark
browns and reds are hardly ever used. There are no
uniforms at all, even amongst the Marshals - so a
Half ling Regiment will present a eolourful and
varied appearance. Shields are usually plain wood or
painted, weapons and armour are generally steel.

26
HOBGOBLINS

Organisation Hobgoglins are powerful fighters and they prefer a


smaller unit size to give then more tactical
mobility. I0 to 20 men is usual.

Tactics The Hobgoblins are best employed in a close combat


role, in this way they can make good use of their
high Toughness. They are subject to Frenzy,
because they also hate just about everybody
Hobgoblins are diff icult to control. This makes
tactics largely a question of initial placing - don't
expect too much eommon sense from a Frenzied
Hobgoblin.

Painting Hobgoblins are a deep yellowish brown colour, their


hair is black. Hobgoblin armour is.black, with bronze
decoration. Favoured colours for clothing are all
dark shades of brown, green and red. Shields can any
colour with black the most common. Weapons can be
either natural wood or black iron.

LIZARDMEN

Organisation Lizardmen have no formal organisation - although


local Chieftains may retain a loyal bodyguard with a
fixed number of troopers. Normally a Regiment will
have anywhere from l0 to l0 members. Cold Ones
are rare and so are used mostly in small units or
even on their own or in pairs. Troglodytes usually
have smaller Regiments.

Tactics As Lizardmen fight mostly underground or at night,


their tactical methods tend to be a bit specialised.
On the surface they prefer to sneak up as close to
the enemy as possible without being spotted, launch
a deluge of missiles, and charge in to atback.
Troglodytes are a bit too stupid lo attempt any
fancy tactical manoeuvres, so their most effective
approach is to get into combat as soon as possible.
Because Lizardmen are immune to Psychological
effects, and even some magic, they are especially
good at dealing with large or magical creatures,
which would normally cause Fear or Terror.

Painting Lizardmen can be almost any colour, but green is by


far lhe most common. Clothing and armour will be
dark, but again can be of any colour. Lizardmen
often have designs or emblems tatooed or painted on
to their skin. Rich or powerful Lizardmen can have
gem stones or precious metals studded on to their
tough hide, making them look very spectacular.
Weapons can be steel or bronze, armour iron, steel
or bronze.

27
oRcs
Organisation Orcs are powerful fighters, Regiments are usually of
between 15 and 20 men. Riding Wyverns are banded
into small Regiments of up to 5 men.

Tactics Orcs prefer frontal assault to subtle manoeuvring.


They make great use of the Wyvern by engaging an
enemy Regiment frontally and simultaneously
attacking from the air.
Paintirrg Orcs are a deep olive brown or dull green colour.
Their clothing is usually of any dull shade such as
grey, brown or red. Guard Regiments wear red.

Weapons and armour canbe steel or brass, mail


armour would usually be steel but brass is
sometimes used.

Shields and standards are often heavy with embossed


metal. Orcs love making their own standards out of
those captured from their enemy, or even from
captured enemy themselves! Obviously this means
that a successful Orc Regiment could have a huge
standard, maybe even needing two Orcs to carry it.
Orcs have loud voices and typically loud and vulgar
battlecries.
For example - rWaaarrthe Orcs Oi! Oi! Oi!'

SLANN

Gganisation Slann Empire soldiers are organised into fightinq


units of 20 men. Slave Warriors are used in
Regiments of 20 or more troops with Slann Slave
Leaders. Tribal troops are not organised into any
formal units, but on the battlef ield may form
Regiments of from 5 to J0 men.

Tactics Slann tactics are highly ritualised, at the beginning


of a battle the Slann warriors line up and advance
upon their foes. Often Slann may commit
themselves to battle without even an attempt to
cover their flanks, a role which could be amply
filled by the tribal troops.
Paintirrg Slann are green, blue, grey or sometimes yellow in
colour. Their skin may carry black or dark red
mottling or broken stripes, to some extent these are
dictated by the area the Slann come from, and some
skin colours have a limited geographic distribution.
Tribesmen, especially Braves, often wear not only
ritual or tribal tatoos, but also war paint,. Colours
vary and are traditional within each tribe -lights
blues, reds and white are common pigment types.
Slann armour is made from sea-shells and gold,
tribesmen wear animal skins which can be any
lightish brown colour. Decoration can be any vivid
colour with a predominance of Iight blues, red and
light green. AII wood is painted. Blow-pipes are
often black.
Slave warriors are humans, but tend to assume a
white and palid skin colour, clothing is simple white
or off white fabric. Slave warriors may be tatooed
to show ownership, in which case each warrior
within a Regiment will bare the same tatoo.

28
LT\DEAD

Organisation Regiments of Undead can be organised into


conveniently sized units, either of I0 or 20. All
Undead are quite powerful and so there is no need to
employ large Regiments. Cavalry are more usefully
employed in units of 5.

Tactics The Undead may not be quite as coherant as they


were whilst alive, and so tactics tend to be simple.
The problems with Instability make night the ideal
3q
time to launch attacks, when the Undead are most
reliable.
Paintirlg Undead assume sickly and palid colours. Bones can
be off white or any shade through to brown, they
may be stained with blood. Zombies look good with
lots of blood trickles and a good deal of dirt.
Spectres, Wraithes and similar etherial spirits can
be shadowy black or a whispy grey- try and achieve
a flourescent effect. Eyes can be white, yellow,
light green or bright red. Magical creatures often
have runes on cloaks or clothing. I
Shields and armour will be battered and dirty.
Shields too can be in poor state of repair, and may
have embedded arrows or spears. The Undead
battlecry takes the form of a deathly rattle rising
above the massed ranks of the undead as
inarticulate wizened throats imitate the actions of
once living vocal organs.

THE KNIGHTS OF ORIGO

The island outpost of Fyrus seemed a good plaee for the monks of
the holy order of Saint Origo to build a monastery. True - Fyrus did
lie but a dozen miles from the coasts of Araby, it was the birth
place of the revered Mullah Aklanrd and its harbours did control the
main east-west trade routel but the Brothers of the Holy Order of
Saint Origo decided Fyrus would make an ideal place to rest and
meditate. They started by kicking out all of the natives and
building a huge f ortress. This they decided to call the 'Holy
Monastery of the Divine Origor.

When the good brothers found their prayer disturbed by Arabian


pirates and the continued complaints of the disinherited they
reacted in the only way they knew how. They built fleets, wiped
the waterways clean of eastern ships, and fired every Arabian port
within a hundred miles. For the purposes of the erusade the Grand
Master of the Order designed the special uniform and banner which
is illustrated here.

The Knights returned to a life of peace and conLemplation,


disturbed only by annual excursions burning, looting and destroying
all along the coasts of heathendom. After a few years they were
shaken from their solitude by vast armies of Easterners, who lay
seige to, and eventually destroyed, the monastery. Many of the
Knights were slain but a eompany eseaped, and led by ihe Grand
Master of the order, Sir John Tyrweld, the Order reformed in the
West.

From then on the company crusaded extensively against the


enemies , of all right thinking folk and gained a eonsiderable
reputaLion from their enemies. Amongst the Goblins they became
renowned as 'The Frothers', whilst the Easterners dubbed Sir John

This section of the rules is intended to allow you to easily roll up
interesting Heroes, Wizards and their companions to order.

If you require a Hero and Wizard for an army which is being


assembled on a points value basis, you may also use the charts to
create a character with randomly determined Attributes,
followers, magieal equipment etc, having first paid the appropriate
number of points to be allowed to roll him up. This will give you a
different character every time, and whether you get good value for
points cost will be entirely in the hands of Goethi and spaanal the
Gods of Chance. For competitive battles where evenly matched
forces are imperative, the standard charaeters given in the main
lists should be used.
In random encounters you may dice for the might of the
encountered Hero or Wizard as follows:- throw a DIO

Accordingly, it is important to try to identify a potion when it is . Ll I

found. A Wizard may attempt to identify a sample of potion by
smell and taste, such a sample is too small to have any effect.
There is a 9oo/o chance that any identification made on this basis
will be correct. It is convenient to generale your potions either
when the game is devised or when they are found. Inform a Wizard
testing a potion of its true nature as you have determined it. Then,
when the potion is actually drunk, make the 907o accuracy test; if
the Wizard fails the test then the poLion is actually something
different than you thought all along, and can be generated
randomly.

If your Wizard makes his identification roll of 9oo/o then the potion
will behave as expected. If, however, the Wizard fails to make his
roll then the potion will have other effects!
If the potion is t.aken without first sampling then the Games Master
can decide to roll randomly for type - and good luck!

Djinn and Efreet are demons and may not be attacked with normal
weaponry. They are vulnerable to enchanted weapons, magic,
undead and other demons. They cannot be killed, but once all of
their wound points are used up they are banished.

SUMMONINIG GEMES

An Eastern Wizard may use the level 3 Summon Djinn spell to


summon any of these creabures. The Wizard may then give the
Djinn or Efreet a single command, which it will then obey. The GM
may interpret the command and play the part of the creature.
Once the command has been fulfilled the creature will vanish, but
may be resummoned. A Dust Devil may not be given a command,
but the summoner may point it in the desired direction!

CAPTIVE GENN

A Djinn, Efreet or Dust Devil may be enslaved by a powerful


Wizard. To accomplish this the Wizard must first summon the
creature. He must then attempt to enslave it - which he may do
using an enc*ranted bottle. To successfully capture his prey the
Wizard rolls a D5 and adds his Mastery Level and Willpower. He
may then add up to any number of Cons[itution points he has
remaining. If this total is more than the creature's Willpower then
it has been caotured.

13
The Willpower of an captive Genie can be established as 5D5. If the
Wizard fails to make the caPture then he has no control over the
Genie, and the GM may play it as he sees fit.

If successful the possessor of the bottle may call upon the Genie up
to J times a day, and issue one command each time. The creature
will obey each command and return to his bottle. If the bottle
should be broken the captive is then freedl there is a 5oo/o chance
that the creature will reward his liberator if the act is deliberate.

TABLE ONE - PHILTRES

A philtre is a magical preparation consisting of ground herbs, bones


or sLones in a solution of liquid, usually blood or waLer. By
selecting only approprialely sympathetic items, at similarly
appropriate and sympathetic times of the day or nighl, a Wizard
may make a philtre which will help him perform his magic. PhilLres
are usually contained within a glass phial, or may be enclosed in a
small box or muslin bag such as is somebimes worn around the neck.
Philtres are destroyed when they are used, they may be burnt,
poured onbo the ground or used in some other way. It takes quite a
long time to make a philtre, you can generate this as fD6 hours
minus 2 hours per Mastery level of the Wizard. Wizbrds usually
employ apprentices to perform this laborious task. Philtres have a
limiled shelf life - usually 3 days. Generale the initial shelf life of
any philtre by rolling a Dl+I to give the number of days remaining.

The power of a Runeweapon derives from the magical runes
enscribed upon it. A wizard may choose to enscribe one such rune
three times instead of gaining a spell. The actual Rune occupies an
area of roughly Znx 2'on both sides of the blade or weapon head,
which restricts the numbeiiFrunes which may be enscribed onto
any particular weapon. Runes may also be enscribed on armour, and
Wizards may enscribe runes onto their personal talismans. An
