Hey all! cco12 here with a Fantasy concept. I must apoligize, lately I've been out of the hobby, playing the ocassional game or two, but the reason I'm not is because over the years I have actually won a couple of armies via raffles/family and friends. Which is making me admittedly lazy. I haven't assembled a model in so long, until now. You see, I'm a video gamer too. And during my vacation from Warhammer, I was playing Nintendo's Fire Emblem games a lot (great series by the way. Check it out!) Well in Fire Emblem, your characters can "level up" and then eventually (upon getting the right item) promote to a new, stronger class. So I thought, wouldn't it be cool to make a Fire Emblem themed army? It took me two seconds to realize the amount of converting that would take, WAY to much for a rookie like me who's busy filling out applications for schools and whatnot. So I came up with a better idea to incorporate Fire Emblem into my Warhammer army. I decided to make my army a small, up-and coming warband. I would go into detail on who each unit was(as well as making references to Fire Emblem) To really show who everyone represented, I decided, my people would promote. So here's how I plan on doing things.
All units start at Level 1
When a unit kills an enemy unit, it gains a level.
Once a unit reaches level 10 it has the option to promote.
AH BUT WAIT there's a twist to keep me from promoting too early. To promote, a unit must have a level Equal to the number of models in the unit and still be above Level 10.
Now then moving on. Another important note is that when a unit promotes it gets reset to level 1.
Wait! HOW does promotion work?
When a unit promotes it moves up a tier, to the unit on the next tier most similar to it (or with the best backstory that I can come up with)
The Tiers, are quite simply, your choices.
Cores promote to Specials who promote to Rares who promote to Heroes who promote to Lords who promote to my own, homebrew special characters.
Ya so that's it. Do you all like it?
