Simon's Army

Simon von Carstein

True Blood
Feb 25, 2008
I've decided that as Simon has a wide variety of troops that I should put them all down here so that I don't forget them.xD

Core Troops
Skeletons - ordinary
Bat swarms
Dire wolves
Corpse Carts - Gained when Simon took Sylvania.
Feral Ghouls - Baalak Gul rejects
Living Sylvanian levy/Archers/Huntsmen
Skeleton Militia - armed with halberds and shields

Special Troops
Baalak Gul - Improved Ghouls
Spirit Hosts
Black Knights
Necropolis Guard - Wight Guardians of Nexeternus and Ikaana armed with glaives and Spears.
Drakenhof Guard - Wight Bodyguards of the von Carsteins armed with greatswords Simon, Sariah and Aurelius have been seen protected by these almost invincible warriors.

Rare Troops
Ogres - Armed with hand weapons or Cannons.
Zombie Giants - recent additions to Simon forces they used to serve Magneqrox in life but found a new master in death.
Banshee's and Wraiths - Few in number answer to Nar-Zuul
Black Coaches - Now that Simon controls Sylvania he gained the use of more of these.
Vargulf - just one.
Blood Knights - few originally but starting to increase thanks to the alliance with Drako von Carstein.

That is one big army. Just to note though - when the alliance is struck with the Blood Keep, all the Blood Dragons will fight under one army.

Seeing as Peter's army is pledged to Simon's banner, here's his forces.

Skeletons (raised from dead Imperial Soldiers. About 500)
Ghouls (The monks from Peter's Sigmarite fortress fed on tainted meat as punishment for the crimes. As many as turn up to fight really)

Black Knights (Raised Templars of Sigmar. 20 of these chaps)
Grave Guard (raised Greatswords. Around 50 of them)

Blood Knights (those who fought with Peter in his mercenary days. Only 5 of them.
