Royal Armies of The Hyborean Age: Army List (Ophir)
Ophir 750 Points
Banner: Royal blue field with scarlet disc in center.
Ophir would field a well balanced army that would make use of infantry, cavalry, and archers; all of good quality. There would be regular trained infantry in both the medium and heavy category. The archers would be Shemites with the long range Shemite bow. The cavalry would be composed of knights as in Aquilonia, As a true nation Ophir would also have a unit of Royal Guard Infantry.
The regular troops would favor wearing scarlet and would use the shield device and banner of Ophir. The knights would have some units composed of individual nobles with their own shield devices and other units which would use the scarlet disc on a blue field as their shield device. All cavalry would carry the banner of Ophir.
The Royal Guard would wear Royal Blue with a Red disc on their chests, shields, and banners. They would also have gold armor.
The Cavalry would all be heavy and mailed and would be organized as follows:
Elite Knights- -HC- -A- -12- -0-20
Mailed Knights- -HC- -B- -12- -80-100
The foot troops would make up 67-75% of the army as follows.
Shemite Archers- -LI- -B- -18- -33-45
Royal Guard- -RI- -A- -30- -1 unit
Regular Foot- -HI/MI- -B- -24- -55-67
The Regular Foot should be half Medium and half Heavy units.
*I'm undecided about Ophir troops, maybe Normans or Knights of Outremer. I'm not sure yet
