The Hochfahrt City Militia

I’ve been away from this place for (quite) a while, lots going on, nothing to see here, move along…

Righto. Kicking off again I present the Hochfahrt City Militia. One of my first “divisions” of KoM troops, most of this group of units dates back to when I first started playing the game in its earliest 12 page long edition. So there are no new models in this post. However I thought it good to show what I’m doing as far as army building is concerned in KoW – building divisions rather than just units. With the plan to eventually play at 10,000 points and beyond, I wanted more character to the armies than simply “5 regiments of shieldwall infantry, check, two troops of…”. How dull that would be!

Hochfahrt lies on the main road between the Royal Capital and the Duchy of Bläther to the West. It’s an important rest stop and trading post for traffic along the mountain road and is well known for its somewhat dubious night life…

Captain Hans Gretel has served in his King’s army since the tender age of 14, when he was a mere drummer in his father’s infantry regiment. He now leads two regiments of his own, as well as some irregular soldiery from the sometimes strangely populated  country villages found near Hochfahrt itself.

Despite his humble origins, he has risen through the ranks and is a decorated war hero of the city. He feels he is lucky because he’s not dead yet. Honestly, have these city burghers seen what has to be fought out there? Probably not...
