Armies of Greyhawk 1 - Snow Barbarians.

Alright, as some of you (all two, I suspect) will know I'm slowly working on things for a 15mm scale Field of Glory-based army that will come to represent the various and eventually combined forces of the Barbarians of the Thillonrian peninsula for the ongoing Armies of Greyhawk project. I plan to write up all of the main players of as much of Oerth as I can as time progresses, and am somewhat optimistically aiming for one every week or so. Updates will be here as things move forward. We'll see exactly how much gets finished in the future, I suppose.

The listings and options for each force are comprised through a combination of studying available troop compositions, reading background and histories of the region concerned and then applying some rudimentary knowledge of historical warfare and military usage of different troops to come up with something that makes some sort of logical sense as a viable battle-ready force from that perspective, too. Of course, this approach might not please everyone, but I personally am quite pleased with the first few lists I've drawn up.

Questions and comments are, of course, always welcome and I sincerely hope that other wargamers will find some use in the lists as presented, or simply as inspiration for their own lists.  I will also note that these lists are provided by me "as-is" and they are never to be taken for profit or other publication without at least getting my permission first. Other than that, please download them, play with them, use them, edit them for your own personal use to your heart's content but most of all just enjoy them.

Here, now, I present the first "neat" draft of the first army list completed, that of the Snow Barbarians:

Edit: Link updated to 1.0a, because I forgot to include some notes at the bottom. Whoops!
