Default Which Order?

Disclaimer: Warning there may be some information regarding the book Reiksguard and Sword of Justice in this post, do not read further if you're worried about possible spoilers.





I was wondering, what do you think is the best order to include within a Averland army? I was considering the Knights of the Blazing Sun seriously as I've read that they have a strong influence within the area since it's so far south.

However after reading two books recently, both have included a lot of Reiksguard so now I'm unsure as to which way to go, especially since you can now include the likes of Ludwig Schwarzhelm and Kurt Helborg in armies and who also appear in either book as well as the fact Ludwig who is an Averland, dislike the Reikguards

Personally I think that KotBS would fit perfectly, geographically and colour-wise.The Reikguard would work aswell I think, infact the Reikguard would fit any province imo. I read that book, can't wait for the sequel!

The Reikland guard are the knighthood directly responsible for the defence of Reikdorf, and are generally attached the High Marshall.

Blazing Sun would fit the Yellow and Black and Averland. However, they're based in Talabecland, and have more to do with the South and East in Estalia, and their propensity for Myrmidia.

However, the Order of the Black Bear have a Fortress in Averland - http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/co...e=true&start=3

The Knights of Sigmars blood is lead by Hans Leitdorf, brother to the Elector Count of Averland.

Knights of the Blazing Sun's Main Temple/Chapter House is in Talabheim- that's not to say they don't have a presence in Averland, just thought I'd best point it out.

There is a Knightly Order that takes the symbol of Blackfire Pass as it's iconography (Blackfire Pass being in Averland)- the Knights of Sigmar's Blood.
In fact their Grand Master is a close relative to the Count of Averland (or was at least).

They've got a colour scheme that's very similar to the Reiksguard.

Silver Armour. White Lances with Black Flames, Red Shields with a laurel wreathed skull over a golden warhammer as symbol, and red edging to the War Horse's silver barding.

I'm thinking of going with Knight's of the Broken Sword, an order made up of Solland Noblemen that moved to Averland after it's destruction.
