More Battlesworn Incoming

Ganesha Games' Battlesworn fever has struck Mik's Minis for sure.  Read the last review for more details on the game itself, but suffice it to say that I've been on an army building kick.  When you're building said armies with Legos it's even better.  Not that I need any excuses to play with Legos mind you!

In the rulebook itself, in addition to all of the sample troop types and suggested alternate genres, there are a ton (at least two pages worth) of completed sample armies.  I've cranked out three so far, and have my eyes on a couple more at least.  I went with your basic Orcs, a Bandits list (which I themed heavily towards a Robin Hood style band), and the Human Knights list.  

Over the next few days I'll be posting individual warbands with details of what troop types are in each, as well as closeups of the the figs themselves.  This is all in Lego mind you, but a dozen figures or so from any collection you've got should work.  Until then, enjoy.


  1. Nobody needs an excuse to play with Lego :) I'll need to give Battlesworn a look.

    1. Let me know what you think about the rules, I've been quite taken with them.

      And make sure you get in some Lego time!

    1. Thanks Joe, I figure I'll try to resurrect the blog just a tad.

  3. Interesting. I can think of tons of little warbands to build with our legos:
    Dragon Knights
    Lion Knights
    Lotr Heros
    Hobbit Dwarves
    LOTR Orks/Goblins
    Roman Troops

    I could do the Robin Hood group if I got the mini figures from my Mom's house from the original forestmen sets. I am going there on Saturday ;-). I will have to go give your review a more detailed examination.

    1. Lots of good options in there, you need about a dozen of the same 'theme' and you're good to go. Definitely grab those forestmen this weekend, the above 'bandits' are pretty much all classic forestmen. I was thinking, in big battle you could even join two forces, like knights and their ranger allies, orcs with undead, and the like.
