Dux Brittaniarum - Irish Raiders

The wargaming gods are against me have returned from the Wyvern club a few weeks ago having had my first taste of of Dux Brittanniarum, I return to find an e-mail from Rich Clark offering a 20% off flash sale for all Too Fat Lardies products....

What more of an incentive did I need?
 
For £18 (less 20%) you get a 44-page rulebook, and a deck of 54 cards to add to your Dux Britanniarum deck. The book adds four new forces to the core Dux armies, the Picts, Irish, Scotti and Northern British.
You also get an expansion of the campaign maps to include the whole of the UK and Scotland and Ireland

With a reasonably large collection of Plantation Irish it did not take much work to adapt the existing formation to Dux and create a dark age Irish Warband.


The warband of  Caiside Nuallan as he starts on his journey to become a mighty leader.


Lord Caiside Nuallun from the lone of the Children of Danu - an old Royal line of the old land, a land of gods who walked among men he gets + 1 on his honour role.
Flanked by his Champion and two subordinate leaders. - Dathi Tighearnan and Berach Fiann.


Raider Group 1.


Raider Group 2


Raider group 3.


One group of four slingers.


Two groups of four skirmishers under the comand of a Status I noble.


One group of Noble Raider Cavalry supported by a group of skirmish Cavalry.

Nice to be able to finish a force without having to paint anything, but with Salute fast approaching I can't rule out some extra skirmishers and some more Gallowglas to bolster the raider ranks.

First outing tonight as proper Irish - Lets see how they get on.......

  1. Hi Stu, is it right that you grow your war band as you progress in the campaign, if so you may need to get some at Salute .

    1. Your spot on, but only by groups of 4-6 figures.... Besides got some planned for my Elizabethan stuff anyway...
      Working on a variant that could work for your Koreans.

  6. They're very nice and certainly will cause panic and wide spread fear among their week willed enemies.
