Army Lists

Armies of the Hyborian Age

By Mike Stelzer

All of the armies are based on the armies of the Hyborean Age created by Robert E. Howard. A large number are derived from the game rules "Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age" by Lin Carter and Scott Bizar for Fantasy Games Unlimited. They also contain material derived from a Dragon magazine article, which added to "Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age". As well as material from the books and stories of Conan by R. E. Howard and other authors. And the stories in the Comics by Marvel set in the World of Conan.

There are several good Conan and Hyborean Age web sites online. A couple of the have geographical maps and more geographic information than I provide here.

First this is a very detailed world; R.E. Howard mapped and wrote about the major nations that the original stories took place in extensively. But there are some exceptions or differences from the original, many other writers have added to the story line. In doing so some contradictory information has been created, I have attempted to keep this list as simple as possible and follow the spirit of the original books. In doing so I have only added the magic or pure fantasy elements when they are a well-documented part of the national make up, but even then as choices and not required units.

A note about Allies, enemies, terrain and borders. The boundaries given in the Howard stories were in constant flux, these were nations that wanted to grow and expand their borders. And in several stories borders were crossed to attack the nation on the other side, so borders are just outlines of the areas of control, not fixed like modern day borders. Most of these nations were much like the Italian City States, in that they were always plotting with and against each other. The Allies listed are those they are least likely to attack and most likely to work with. The enemies are the opposite, the ones least likely to be worked with and most likely to be at war with. The terrain given in each case is the predominate terrain and does not reflect the whole of any nation. These nations were much larger than those of our Middle Ages. I have created a Political Map of the Hyborean Age, it does not include provinces, city-state boundaries or tributary areas. The numbers after each army's name is its location on the map.

The notes after each army will include the type of figures that most reflect that nations look. These are in some cases well documented and in others very sketchy. The same is true of the flags, some are well documented, others are mention but never described. The notes will also include the use of Free Companies in the armies.

Army Lists and Notes

Free Companies
In those nations allowed to use Free Companies, any unit you want may be traded for one mercenary unit. The Mercenary unit is of their choice except Artillery, which was used only in sieges, and warwagons, which are not mentioned. This Free Companies are not allies and are much more faithful to their contracts then real ones. In many of the stories the mercenary units fought to the last man.

Afghulistan and Ghulistani Tribes (47)
Hilly Ag:3 E: Turan, Vendhya, Ghulistani A: Ghulistani, Afghulistan Afghulistan:

1x 4Bd, 2x 4Bd, 7x 5Wb, 2x 2Ps or 3Bw

Notes: This is an Aztec type army. Their ships are for raids, the capture of slaves and sacrificial victims. Full army would most likely be seen in a major yearly raid or in defense of nation. Flags, Aztec style totems or banners would be used.

Notes: A pirate nation, think Blackbeard without guns. This collection of thieves is both more and less organized than the originals. No nation controls their base of operations the Barachan Islands, because of that they do have the ability to organize peacefully. They are less organized in that once outside the islands they will attack each other with as much glee as a merchant ship. This becomes even more likely if the Captains involved have a blood feud with each other. The only nation to include Art as they use it aboard ship and if necessary would use it on land. Flags look at all the old pirate flags, Black and Red types dominate.
