Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm thinking of starting an Averland warband.
The militia box set for Empire...has that got enough bits to give you everything you need? The description says it has bows, and the box art has a guy with a handgun etc.
Anyone tried it out?
It has everything you need. Halberds, two-handed weapons, blunderbuss, pistols, hsndguns, bows, maces, aces, swords. And bodies. It's a very good buy. I recommend it to any human warband.
The empire militia sprue is the original Mortheim warband sprue anyways. Barring Middenheimers (they had an extra sprue with more heads and lots of hammers which went to become White Wolve Knight parts) you can make every basic male human warband from it.
Although spears are not in there (but you could always do some cutwork on a halberd)
It ain't easy bein' green... :-)
Yeah the Militia Box is very good. Lots of cool parts in there, I'd definitely recommend it.
It certainly has everything, but Averland is a very rich state, and the militia are kinda shabby, i'd select and mix the most ostentious bits from the militia box to truly reflect their wealth.
But that shouldn't be to much of a problem, the militia box has loads of choice, you could perhaps buy the empire general box for some nice bitz.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
The empire state troops box is also good, it has swords, spears, halberds and shields in it along with 10 torsos that can be mixed with the militia box as well. Its also a good buy if your doing mercenaries.
