At 5 – King Louen Leoncouer of Bretonnia
King Louen Leoncouer has always attacked the enemies of Bretonnia with fiery wrath and determination, yet never have his actions been anything other than chivalrous and honourable. He is blessed above all other mortals by the Lady of the Lake and legend has it that where Leoncouer is cut, light streams out from the wound until it is healed over once more. As the King of Bretonnia, he leads by example, taking the fight to the enemy atop his mighty Hyppogryph, Beaquis.
At 4 – Dwarven High King Thorgrim Grudgebearer
When Thorim Grudgebearer goes to war, he carries with him the Great Book of Grudges – the Dammaz Kron – which inspires nearby Dwarfs to great acts of vengeance and retribution. He is borne aloft on the Throne of Power by four sturdy Thronebearers and it is believed that Grungi himself wrought this ancient artefact, which gives Thorgrim such heroic resilience. In battle, Thorgrim brandishes the Axe of Grimnir, a magical weapon engraved with three potent master runes that have been the bane of many a monster. Thorgrim is a warrior, general and inspirational figure to all Dwarfs and the figurehead of his entire race.
Taking 3rd spot – Grand Marshall of the Reiksguard Knights, Kurt Helborg
Kurt Helborg is the Grand Marshal of the Reiksguard Knights and one of Emperor Karl Franz’s most trusted military commanders. Tall and strong, he is the very image of a heroic Knight, his armour polished to a mirror sheen and his sword arm as strong as his courage is unbending. Helborg is reputed to be the greatest swordsman in the Old World and, armed with the Runefang of Solland, there are few who are willing to dispute that claim.
In 2nd – The Emperor’s Champion, Ludwig Schwarzhelm
Ludwig Schwarzhelm is the champion of Karl Franz and the bearer of the Emperor’s personal standard. He is a towering figure of a man renowned for his mighty physique, stern expression and deadly sword arm. When the Empire marches to war, Schwarzhelm carries The Emperor’s Standard and acts as his personal bodyguard.
When not in battle, Schwarzhelm upholds the Emperor’s justice and many disloyal nobles have met their end by his blade.
In first – The one and only Female Maneater
However, there is some controversy as to whether this is a fake…
Personally I think Kurt Helborg’s soup strainer deserves to be second for the fantastic conditioning, but it’s a good list nonetheless. Do you think there’s anyone that they’ve missed off the list? Perhaps the Dwarves are under represented…
