Age of Magic army lists

My copy of Age of Magic showed up yesterday and after a good read of the book I sat down and put together some tentative army lists for the Dwarf and Goblin forces that I have. These are just going to be test armies and I am going to try to use my existing figures and not but anything new. The aim is going to be to get these painted and get in some games. In order to test the Age of Magic rules out though I will have to play with unpainted minis.

Goblin – Horde

The best list for the Goblins in the Horde army. None of the other army lists really have the feel of a Goblin force. Here is what I am planning to build and test out.

  • (free) Warlord – Mount Beast
  • (4 Warriors) Champion – Mount Animal
  • (1) Sorcerer
  • (1) 4 Berserkers – Hearthguard
  • (1) 4 Berserkers – Hearthguard
  • (1) 4 Warriors – Mount Animal Composite Bow
  • (1) 8 Warriors
  • (1) 12 Levies – Bow
  • (1) 6 Levies – Bow
  • (6 Levies) Warmachine – Static
  • (1) 2 Creatures – Biped

The Berserkers are going to be Squigs. I have 18 of them primed as well as two Handlers. The group of four Warriors will be Goblins on Wolf and the eight Warriors will be Goblins with spears. The two Creatures are some nice metal Trolls and the Warmachine will be an old metal Stone Chucker.

Dwarves – Great Kingdom

The assumption is that you would use the Masters of Underearth for the Dwarves but I will be using the Great Kingdom list for a two reasons. The Lieutenant for the Underearth list is an Alchemist and I don’t have an appropriate model for one. As well, the Masters of Underearth have a special Demolition Team unit that is clearly meant to be some sort of weapon team. I have nothing that resembles that and I would need to buy models or to bodge something together. The Great Kingdom list still lets me take all the goodies I want for the Dwarves

  • (free) Warlord
  • (1) 12 Levies – Firearms
  • (1) 4 Warriors
  • (1) 4 Warriors
  • (4 Warriors) 1 Paladin
  • (1) Monster – Behemoth
  • (4 Warriors) Warmachine – Static
  • (1) Sorcerer
  • (1) 4 Hearthguard – Heavy Weapons
  • (1) 4 Hearthguard – Heavy Weapons
  • (1) 8 Warriors

The Behemoth will be the Earth Elemental that I recently painted up. The static Warmachine is the Rocket Launcher and the rest of the Warriors will be the eastern themed Dwarves with axes and shields. I have a set of plastic GW Rangers that will be the Hearthguard with Heavy Weapons and another set of plastic Dwarves with two-handed axes.

Those models will be my painting priority and I am going to attempt to alternate between Dwarves and Goblins as I paint up models.
