This blog was originally started by Reis and posted on Myspace way back in 2006, but he decided to move it to the larger, more accessible Blogger network in 2008, to better reach the large Conan fan base.
These blog posts represent our personal fandom and are a collection of whatever we can find on our favorite son of Cimmeria. If we find it on the web, we try to post it here. Some of the content, such as fan art, custom action figures and the like are not always used by permission, but we have only posted them out of great respect for fellow fans to enjoy. However, if you see something on here of yours and you'd prefer we took it down or notice that we haven't given proper credit, feel free to let us know and we'll fix it as soon as we can.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the blog and we encourage you all to please make comments and share your thoughts!
Striaght from the army lists from Royal Armies Of The Hyborean Age.
Argos 1500 points
Banner: Purple Field with three gold balls up and down center of flag.
Most units in the army of Argos are hired from Ophir, Koth and Shem as there are very few native units. These Mercenary units should be treated as native as opposed to hiring Free company Mercenaries which could be up to 20% of an Army for Argos.
As all cavalry was hired abroad their uniforms would be similar to similar units in their countries of origin. The same applies to the infantry with the exception of the Royal Guard, which was seldom used in battle. All units use the banner of Argos.
The Royal Guard was a unit composed of members of nobility who favored the use of gold armor and shields. Their golden shields would have three purple balls as a device.
Cavalry is all hired and is B class heavy cavalry in units o ftwelve figures. Cavalry was 25-33% of the army.
Infantry is broken down as follows:
Unit Designation-----Type----Class--No. of Figures-----% of Infantry
Hired Spearmen ------HI-------B--------24-----------50-90 Shemite Archers ------LI-------B--------18-----------10-25 Royal Guard ---------HI-------A--------30-----------1 unit
