Hello Averland enthusiasts!
Brand new to the forums, and moderately new to the game, but I have chosen Averland as my province. Was thinking of doing a bastard son of Marius marching for his right to the throne kind of concept army. What are the refernces I hear of the "Vine" troops... something like that? Are they a regiment of Averland, or a rebel political faction? Also in the codex it mentions that provinces like Stirland are poorer, while ones in the south adn west are richer. This includes Averland Im assuming? I want to create an army that would reflect their ability to acquire resources, so can they afford regiment apon regiment of knights and greatswordsmen, or do they rely more heavily on ill equipped infantry? Guns? Devout warrior priests and Witch Hunters, or tech savy engineers, or are they renowned for their understanding of magic?
I know this is fluff, but I enjoy creating an army portraying an area's culture and resource acquisition. My guess is that their close proximity to the border lands means they rely on cavalry for a quick response to invasion, as opposed to slow lumbering artillery trains, but perhaps they have many fortifying the mountains... Or perhaps the emperor allocates many resources to Averland's defence, and little of the provinces coin is invested...
Just some thoughts and questions, would appreciate any feedback,
