Armies of Oerth, Part III: Robilar

Using the Field of Glory wargaming rules & Dragon Magazine #37, I am continuing Gary Gygax's Orders of Battle for certain renowned figures from the World of Greyhawk. Of course, one thing to remember is this list is thirty years old. I am sure the Lord of the Green Dragons has undoubtedly updated it since this time.

Due to the composition and size of this army, I will be using the ratio of 25 men-at-arms/model base per the recommendation in the FoG rules.

Robilar's Army List

Commander-in-Chief: Robilar (Fighter of 19th level) = 1 base
Sometime over one year ago, Robilar freed a demon, and in the ensuing difficulties, forces aligned with Good sacked and destroyed his stronghold west of the City of Greyhawk. Many of the higher-level figures were slain, but Robilar still has Otto, a high-level magic-user, and Quij, an Orcish hero of high abitlity but low intelligence, as well as some relatively low-leve1 cohorts. It is reported that the following force escaped and is now somewhere in the Pomarj region.

Heavy Cavalry: 50 (Regulars) = 2 bases
(3 models/base; knights on horses, heavy armour & barding, hand weapons)

Medium Cavalry: 100 (Regulars) = 4 bases
(3 models/base; riders on horses, leather armour & moderate shields, hand weapons)

Light Cavalry: 50 (Regulars) = 2 bases
(2 models/base; riders on horses, no armour & small shields, hand weapons)

Light Horse Crossbowmen: 50 (Regulars) = 2 bases
(2 models/base; riders on horses, no armour & small shields, crossbows)

Heavy Infantry: 100 (Elite Orcish) = 4 bases
(4 models/base; foot troops, heavy armour & substantial shields, hand weapons)

Light Infantry: 100 (Levied) = 4 bases
(2 models/base; foot troops, no armour & small shields, hand weapons)

Heavy Archers: 50 (Elite Orcish) = 2 bases
(4 models/base; foot troops, heavy armour & substantial shields, bows)

Light Crossbowmen: 50 (Regulars) = 2 bases
(2 models/base; foot troops, no armour & small shields, crossbows)

Pole Armed Infantry: 100 (Regular Orcish) = 4 bases
(2 models/base; foot troops, leather armour & moderate shields, pole arms)

This is 27 bases with 71 models on them.

This force is known to be Lawful Evil, but even the minions of Hell eye the army with suspicion due to its chaotic actions.

Next up: Tenser
