Iphicrates

I've decided on a Spear theme army.
 
And I have decided it will be basically a hoplite army - so to be as fantastical as possible, it will be based upon Iphicrates of Athens. (so peltasts with long spear as spear; javelinmen as shooters, and some HoTT funnies to round it out  - its just a shame there are no peltasts with boots to really get the look)
 

 
 
 
 
Iphicratean Hoplites; Thracian Peltasts;  Ipicrates; Camp

Special Rules for this army

 Shooters

 200p

 Spears supporting Spears or Warband supporting Warband if both are in good going

 +1


Interpenetration

Ground troops can pass under friendly aerials or enemy Fliers or Aerial Heroes, but not if they are in close combat

Combat Results

Bespellers or Shooters ignore adverse results unless bespelling God or Magician, or shooting at an enemy that shot back.
Recoilers pass through friends if allowed to otherwise push them back

An element forced to recoil with a non-sneaker enemy in contact with flank or rear is destroyed.

A recoiler who meets impassable terrain, a Stronghold, or enemy or friends it cannot pass through, push back or destroy is destroyed.




They contrived to win a place at the tournament, although in part due to the need to avoid claims of nepotism amongst the organisers.

They have been awarded the 'Golden Phoenix' trophy, although I forwent the prize army as I already had a plan for the next year... Aztecalypto.
