Hey, couple of questions, mainly looking for inspiration/suggestions.
First off, does Sylvania itself have any specific heraldry, colors, or anything? I've been looking around fluff wise, and coming up completely dry. There must be something.
Secondly, any suggested conversions? I'm trying to make some crossbow skeletons for raising (so obviously not a lot of them), but it seems like there is no good way to get crossbows. The only plastics I can think of is the free company box which comes with 10. Otherwise it's metal bitz orders. I'm thinking for Drakenhoof guard I can get away with Wights without putting on their shields, and I actually do really like those models.
Dark Elf warriors. They come with crossbows and mix with skeletons very well to form great conversions. I think I have pics of mine, I'll edit them in if I find them...
I'm not sure about a symbol, but as far as I know the colours of Sylvania are dark red and purple. They are the ones I used primarily for my vampires.
Dead elves for crossbowmen, possibly the start of my combat unit in the pics too...
Never even thought about the Dark Elves. Good idea.
Also, I think the colors (wild guess here), that they are probably Blue and Red, or similar (purple and red are quite similar), as the coat of arms for Transylvania (which has NO basis for SYLVANIA of course, even though it's four letters short), is blue and red. Hell, I may even use it on a banner or shield or something:
Excuse my obvious braindeadness (must be why I relate to my zombies so much! ) but I have seen several people mention the Army of Sylvania but am not sure what it is or where it is detailed... as far as I can see it is not one of the lists in the appendix of the army book... where are you all getting this from?

Not to question you, but can you tell me where you found that out?Originally posted by strewart@Mar 5 2005, 06:42
Purple and red are the right colours as I said, or at least they are the ones GW use...[snapback]344715[/snapback]
The Sylvania list was in the Storm of Chaos book, it was one of the two page army lists in the back.
Yeah, the sylvanian list was made for SoC, it is a Von Carstein list and uses different tactics (to a certain extent) from normal lists, it is legal now and quite good.
For the colours, I looked in the VC army book first/ The picture of Mannfred at the back of the colour section shows him as mostly dark purple with some red areas.
A couple of pages back the Von Carstein vampires have mostly red as the main colour, besides black of course.
Then in the SoC book, look closely at the little picture they have and you see red on the banners. Though now I look again, I also see a brown banner with a design on it... Maybe it is for Sylvanians.
I'm just trying to find some stuff on the SoC website... I'm sure I saw bits of it there during the campaign, but I can't seem to find anything now. Sorry, thats all I seem to have. Maybe it was just my interpretation of their colours based on what Mannfred looks like...
No problem strewart. My one big complaint with Sylvanians is a total lack of fluff for the list, so I thought you maybe had something. That'd be either the color scheme I'd use as well, or something similar.
