Followers of the Eye

Army overview:

Coldblooded worshippers of the Toad God, Buffo, the Followers of the Eye are a humanoid race whose physical appearance bear exaggerated reptilian and amphibian characteristics, as well as strange features which bring to mind a myriad of sea creatures and oversized crustaceans.

On foot, mounted on a timurlengia, or atop a giant flamingo, the General unit of a Followers of the Eye army is a warrior prince. Armed with an axe, hammer, or sword, carrying a shield, wearing heavy armour, and with a Hand-to-Hand Combat (H-t-H) value of 4+, a warrior prince can wreak havoc in close combat.

With the options including a ‘standard’ champion on foot or mounted on a timurlengia, as well as a monitor-man musician, a Followers of the Eye army can include up to two Champions units. Meanwhile, holding the Telepathy and Time Travel special rules, and available alone on foot, on foot with bodyguards, or mounted on a timurlengia, tegu shamans (of which a maximum of two can be taken) are the Magic Users units of the Followers of the Eye.

Foot Troops units for the Followers of the Eye tend to fall into two categories, with monitor-men warriors being best utilised in hand-to-hand combat, and toad-men archers providing missile support. Further to this, Followers of the Eye players do have access to units of monitor-man-led slave squads, too.

Available in units of 5 or 10, standard Mounted Troops for the Followers of the Eye are Monitor-men Warriors on Timurlengia. Armed with lances and with a Durability (D) value of 4+, these units can cause devastation to enemy lines. Limited to two units, also available as a Mounted Troops option are Tegu Warriors on Giant Flamingos; tegu fighters armed with swords and ray guns who carry the Fly special rule.

Able to field up to three Monsters units, the brutal creatures which a Followers of the Eye player can choose include giant gila monsters and giant monitor-men. When it comes to Machines of War units, options include Toad-men Bolt Throwers and Monitor-men Timurlengia Chariots.
