Is everyone forgetting the Drakwald Runefang? In the fluff regarding runefangs they are given out to heroic generals in dire need.

The Drakwald Runefang isn't needed anymore by any province so that could be the one that they give out
]

I believe it was taken by Nordland, because they aren't an original Province.
I for one welcome our new flying cat overlords.

...would you really give your priceless magical sword to one of your captains in order for him to lead 2 dozen great swords and a few units of state troops?
HELL NO!!!  :laugh:

Thats not true in the armies book as the elector of Nordland used to be ruler of marienburg and when they seceded he was banished upon pain of death.
Unless you have something to prove otherwise :happy:

That's another thing. Why doesn't Kurt Helborg (and Karl Franz) have a shield?

My Burgomeister (Marienburg Elector Count) has full plate, shield, and a barded warhorse (and a Runefang  :icon_razz:) but Kurt can't get such basic kit?

No. A best of a 2+ armour save for Karl Franz on horseback (which is why I like the Valten model).

Would't an Elector Count have an entorage? A group of follower, caretakers, bodyguard and the like?
Elector Count(-es) +125pts
Equipment; Fullplate Armour, Runefang and up to an aditional 50pts of magical items.
BsB. An Elector Count allways have there personal standard with them; May take any magical banner, no price limit.
Body Guards; Re-roll any failed armour saves.
May take a single unit of Greatswords as a core unit.
Any unit he/she joins become immune to panic.
The hole unit is a single model on a 4*4 base with +1 wound.

Thats my idea :biggriin:

I also like the idea of orders or formations that generals can buy similar to the imperial guard
things like:
free turns
sprinting
shield wall
2 rank shooting
fast cavalry esque baiting

or more powerful things like:
+1 to table sides
redeploy d3 units
d3 combat resolution

now that i think about it even province/city specific traits:
hochland- multiple huntsmen/ rifles
nuln- 1 core warmachine
etc (im not great on province and city speciality)

And finally can we please have a heavy barding upgrade for the griffon for around 15pts for 5+ or 4+ armour for the griffon, most of the pictures depict them with plate or mail on

No doubt!  I've always thought they should have sheilds.  Besides, that cool Karl Franz sheild with the raven on it (from the general kit) is just begging to go on the Karl Franz model.

but surely if you gave the griffon fullplate it couldn't fly

it would have like half a ton of metal strapped to it

Armour doesn't weigh quite that much.  I brettonian pegasus knights can have barding the so surely can empire pegasus and the much stronger fliers of griffins and dragons.
