Although not wanting to attempt to faithfully recreate GoT forces the idea of a mishmash of Medieval forces all doing battle in skirmish games is one that I am open to, and moreover allows me to use all sorts of odds and sods that I have collected over the years in the same forces. Generally Speaking though it seems to me that the Northern clans seem to be more rough & ready early Medieval and the further South the clans are high Medieval in appearance. Obviously the Horse clans from across the sea don't fall into this category but so far my interest is confined to the knightly types.
With this in mind I decided to gather the forces for a couple of 28mm starter armies of 24 points representing a Northern Clan and the other a Southern Clan who are obviously sworn enemies. The Northern Clan I decided to call Wolfsdark and the Southern Clan are called Lionheart. Apart from armour styles I decide to make the Wolfsdark troops carry either spear or bows whilst the Lionheart troops carry either bills or crossbows. Both Clans I decided should to be uniformed in a way with the Wolfsdark troops being dark and moody looking in earthy tones and the Lionheart troops being more properly uniformed with a brighter red tone on their cloaks and tabards. Where possible shields again would be uniformed with the Clan sigil on flags, banners and shields.
Obviously this led me to wanting to make flags and banners for these two Clans and so I did. As a flag maker I decided that these were to have multiple options and even variety in the sigil itself as who knows at some point I may want to build a massed battle force for each of these Clans.For anyone interested in buying any of these you can find them by clicking the button below.
Now I guess I must sort out the forces from all the figures I have and see what best fits in with my ideas so far.
