Re: Changes to Mustering - Q and A

Let me be sure I have this straight. Some kindred commanders can be from various realms depending on the need. For Brythoniaid, the human warlords can be from Ceredigion, Gwynedd or Powys. So lets assume that the general Teyrn is from Gwynedd. He wants some Dyndraig in the host, so selects a Prifdyn...

Re: Effective Size and Ubiquity for 1+/3

Here is a specific case that I'm looking at. I'm working on painting some Norse as my first playable kindred (still need to find an opponent). I have 10 Holumann and Birna painted up. Am working on 4 trolls (with the 5th and the three troll leaders on deck, along with Rollo). I can get to an Encount...

Effective Size and Ubiquity for 1+/3

I was reviewing the Muster Rules in trying to build a playable force, or figure out what needs to be assembled for one. I am confused on whether the the Effective Size of a 1+/3 unit that is needed to count the unit's Ubiquity must be 2. Or can it be 1? The rule says to round up. That is a big deal ...

Re: Alex's Darklands Plog

Hey Alex, I've only just started assembling and painting my pile of Mierce stuff too. I wish I was faster or less picky about the paint jobs. I'm new to assembling models, so that is not my favorite part. Getting mold lines off is not fun, and Greenstuff is a nightmare to work with. Pinning makes me...

Blue Prophet's Minis

This is the first Mierce model that I have finished painting. I've been painting for a couple years now, mostly Reaper stuff. This is a metal Nuala. I admit to shamelessly stealing mostly color ideas from MaGie's version of Nuala. I have yet to glue her dagger on her hip, but the photos came out goo...

I like that Bog Beast. Andrew, how do you plan to attach Catrin's hands? I've never painted before assembling before, and am wondering what you will do. Do you scrape off the paint at the joint before supergluing? Do you then greenstuff the finished joint, on top of the paint at the edges? Then do y...

Re: JerzyK's Anglecynn

You are a very good painter. I love being inspired by seeing good paint jobs and learning from them. One thing though, I see that you mounted the assembled Duguth on what look like finished bases. Do you paint them just like that? Or do you remove them from the base before painting, and put them bac...

Advice assembling humans and pinning wrists

I am curious about how many of you assemble human sized figures, particularly the wrists/weapons. Do you pin them every time you can? These Darklands models have more naturally proportioned wrists and hands (ie. small). I'm a novice modeller and painter and am a little intimidated with the best appr...

Re: Listing Gwaelod realm

I am assuming that allies can count toward ubiquity requirements as Jonathon suggests. I was having similar difficulties with a Prifdyndraig general that is Gwaelod realm. Helwr will be a great for this as they are common(2) and only need to be an unit of 5. But they won't be around for a while yet,...

Re: Two 2K gold Brythoniaid hosts

Oh didn't realize that about ardent mounts. I really want to have a build with him in there, and it seems to make sense to give him a Cawrdraig in his unit too. I guess I can swap the Prifdyndraig for an Uchelwr. Then drop the bard because of the dyndraigs going uncommon. I am only getting one Cawrd...

Re: Brythoniaid and Teulu ubiquity

Yeah Jonathon, that is pretty much how I see it being built with Prifdyndraig as general. I had a Prifdynwocor as the allied commander (since I got him as a model), but I see that an Abad or Uchelwr can work. I was just thinking that Abad doesn't make as much sense fluff-wise being under a dyndraig ...

Re: Brythoniaid and Teulu ubiquity

It is hard to have lots of options in filling the Common slot until the new SH:II figures are out. It's either Uchelwr or using Dyndraigs with their Prifdyndraig commander. Since I don't have a sixth Dyndraig (they were sold in sets of 5 remember) I have two options to get the Common unit currently....

Brythoniaid and Teulu ubiquity

The Teryn as commander or general makes Teulu into Mainstay. Uchelwr makes Teulu into Common. What happens if both a Teryn and Uchelwr are in a host and I'm using Teulu? Must Teulu be in both of their commands? And at what ubiquity slot for each Teulu unit? I am trying to make a host with the Brytho...

General's Realm

I am unsure how to definitively tell what realm a general is. The Muster rules say that the realm of the host is that of the general. Some of these are logical. For the Jutes, a Thain should be Cant realm and a Wiht Thain should be Wiht. But both realms are listed for all the Jute entries. So what r...
