Summer 995 - Campaign Update

At the end of Spring 995, Treyine capitulates to Altengard, The Black Moon Incarnate army and to Stygustan. The war on four fronts has worn the nation down and its will to fight has been eradicated. It received the capitulation of Tropilium once more, however.

Mirish and the Abyss remain at war, although the Undead army is more than a little ragged and it seems likely that the war will be over before the leaves fall.

Going to War (aggressor is listed first)
Altengard invades Tropilium
Black Moon Incarnate invades Mirish
Mangu invades Stygustan
Mirish invades The Abyss
Stygustan invades Northern Tropilium

The Army Manoeuvres of Summer 995
Altengard attacks Tropilium
Mangu attacks Stygustan
Mirish attacks The Abyss

Despite declaring war on Northern Tropilium, the sudden attack by Mangu forces Stygustan to defend itself and to defer the invasion until later.

Mirish chooses to let the Black Moon Incarnate army take control of a single province while focusing on destroying the Abyss.

Stygustan vs Treyine - Spring 995

Well it's finally here, my battle for the Talomir Tales campaign. I'm sorry that it took so long and I hope it was worth the wait. I just purchased Comic Life 3 and am still learning how to use it, so please be gentle in your criticism. I would say that, had I known how it would work, I would have made different choices with the source photographs.


The battle was a real slog, but seemed winnable by either side up until the end. It took seven turns to play, which I think is the longest to date. Massed bow fire is a big advantage and the 4 bowmen per unit of Stygustan gave them the edge.

My decision to finish painting the Treyine forces was the main thing that held up fighting this out. In the future I will not make you wait for my slow painting.  If you want to see them in their glory you can find them here and here.

None of the Treyine forces were caught in the pursuit after battle.
