The human army is led into battle by General Tarthon. The army is built for formations, tactics, and powerful attacks.
About this creation
Spearmen are the most populous unit in the army. They have light shields and helmets, spears, and chainmail armor.
Spearmen form formations such as this loose phalanx. This can be used to lure the enemy into underestimating the skill and discipline of the army. When they are drawn into a trap, the enemy soon appreciates the effectiveness of the formation.
Axemen have slightly different armor than spearmen such as the belt clasps and lack of golden sash draped across their torsos. The wield axes and heavy shields.
Shield walls are a favorite formation for these troops. Their helmets provide excellent protection and visibility, and the axemen are surprisingly quick for their appearance.
The ranged fighters of the human army are crossbowmen. They have a thin metal vest and a chainmail coif. Crossbowmen also have quivers on their backs.
Crossbowmen are adept at shooting over their allies', providing deadly supporting fire.
Knights are the cavalry, and elite warriors. They have thick plated armor and helmets. Knights have red capes, round shields, and lances.
Knights can also charge into battle with swords, being trained in multiple weapons for different scenarios.
Infantry commanders are the most elite infantry units. They have similar armor to knights, have the same general training, and are taught tactics. They have swords and shields.
Here are two commmanders leading their troops into battle. All commanders look the same, regardless of who they command.
General Tarthon is the highest military rank for humans. He has fancy, flashy armor mainly for show as well as a large broadsword.
Although some would get the impression that the general is only for show, he is an excellent tactition.
Here is the human army confidently charging into battle.
Edit: Of course I'm to lazy to retake half of these photos, but for the record the knights should have the kite shields and the commanders the round shields. Round shields are a footsoldier's preferance, and kite shields were designed to protect cavalry's legs. So just pretend the shields are reversed or something.
nice job! great use of the red pieces. would you be interested in judging the warthog contest in the A World of Creativity (Lego) group? here's the link if you are. http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/2214 thanks!
I like your use of the phalanx formation ;) Humans are just beasts at defending things that are theirs.
The organization of your army is fantastic. I love all of your moc's. You have even inspired me to customize my human army a bit more so that they could ally with yours and still be told apart. overall nice job once again.
