    Scouts


    Chaf

    So its been over a month since my last post and with the build up to Christmas i havent had much time to play Kings of War or work on my army.  However in my last game playing against my mate Jamie Eaton and his Orc list i discovered the hard way that my army was in desperate need of some chaff units.  

    I thought about different cost effective options from higher point flying units to troops of infantry to act as road blocks.  During my last game i found that my units of knights were being shut down for most of the match by cheap infantry units.  In particular a regiment of goblins were camped out in a forest with hard hitting units on either flank that were ready and waiting for any knight unit to charge into their death.  I remember wishing i had a cheaper, faster and lighter cavalry unit that could have dealt with the Goblins and cleared the path for the second wave of knights.

    So in the end i decided to build a couple units of Villein Reconnoitres. When this unit isn't acting as a chaff unit that supports the knights it can also hunt down siege weapons with is higher movement speed. 



    I really enjoyed painting these guys, the Bretonnian Yeoman models from GW are beautiful. Unfortunately they're hard to come by these days but fortunately i had just enough to create 3 units with 3 models on each base.  Much like my knights units, if i used more than 3 they would have look cluttered on the base with the scenery. So here they are...
