New Campaign Map

Northern Wars Campaign Map
I've been working on a re-vamped (close detail) campaign map for the War of Rulership campaign which I have now finished.

With a high resolution and multiple layers I can edit, alter boundaries and zoom in and produce detail maps to my hearts content.

I'm now going to transpose a separate layer for army and troop positions and movements and the campaign action can notch up a gear.

With the progress on the campaign pretty slow but steady the first winter is drawing to close and things are hotting up with a few surprises, even for me (which is nice) so reports on the War will finally begin to appear soon.

Lornian Assault Trooper

This soldier is a Lornian Assault Trooper and is a member of the Imperial retinue.

An elite body who are formed from other Imperial regiments from time to time, usually on campaign and are drawn from the best and most proficient men available at the time.

Formed into small heavily armed and armoured units, it is the job of these soldiers to storm fortifications and breaches in defense's and break enemy formations on the battlefield.

The pavaise the warrior carries has the Cheansachad Imperial colour's of black, white and red and bears the device of the white tower, one of the emblems of the Queen, signifying his membership of the White Leopards, one of the Imperial Household regiments.

These bands of assault troops are often picked from the younger noblesse and are rightly feared by their foes for their courage and fierceness in the breach. This elan is largely a factor of that if they are victorious and survive their 'promotion' to the often fatal posting, they can expect great rewards and field promotion if they do.

The units of assault troops are usually temporary formations and are stood down after assault's or occassionally at the end of campaign's.
