The identity of the official guard figure has been found!

For nearly 30 years this figure has represented the guards of the City-State of the Invincible Overlord My group and I call them the Official Guard Figure.


Off to kick some PC ass!

Who is this mysterious figure who has been slain by the hundred by PCs who refuse to kneel before Zod the Overlord? Who in turn slaughtered dozens of PCs with their dreaded Knight-Killer Crossbows?

Well it turns out he is Ral-Parth Chaos War #50-023 Sea Elf Spearman I, in reserve. 


With a certain plume shaved off along with a spear missing. You can recruit him at Iron Wind Metals. The company also has a kickstarter to bring back more of the old Ral Partha Chaos War miniatures.

Here some Swords and Wizardry/Majestic Wilderlands stats for this guard along with the rules for the Knight Killer Crossbow

This is the largest crossbow capable be carried on a regular basis by fighters. It uses either a windlass or a cranequin to cock the weapon for use. This takes a considerable amount of time, 36 seconds or 6 combat rounds. The result is a weapon capable taking out a heavily armored opponent in a single shot.

Note: 1d = 1 silver piece. Accuracy equal accuracy bonus to the to-hit roll. Reload action, the number of combat rounds it takes to reload this weapon. Abilities, a lite skill system used in the Majestic Wilderlands supplement.

I'm currently in the process of painting up a bunch of the Sea Elves from the first Ral Partha Kickstarter. They are again available in this 2nd wave (ends in 7 days!) The Elves are very adaptable to other races and uses. Very cool to see what you've done with yours.
