The Mountains Men are the only Lannister unit that I have that are not red, I have decided not to get any Pyromancers or Poor Fellows as I want an army of professional soldiers, or something like that anyway.
They are a good all round tough unit and like most units in the game, if they can hit whilst at full strength on a charge, then the results can be spectacular.
These are my favourite Lannister unit, Halberdiers.
At 6 points, they are a point more than the Lannister Swordsmen, but they get more attacks and Sundering. Add in an attachment and they are a formidable unit. Don’t leave home without them.
The first of my Knights Of Casterly Rock. As these, like all figures in the CMON range come in a single pre-built piece, painting behind the shield is a bit tricky. Once again it is the dilemna of needing to put much colour of bits you can’t see very well.
The Knights are obviously an Elite unit, they hit very hard when they charge, but they do not like being stuck in a prolonged combat, the effectiveness of their attacks greatly reduces in subsequent turns.
When I have more infantry painted, I will have to try an army without any Knights just for a change.
Here we have The Mountain’s little brother, Sandor Clegane, otherwise known as The Hound.
As a 2 point attachment, the only benefit is the fact that he make the unit a House Clegane unit. The post panic test ability does not always get to go off, so I may well be going with other attachments in the future.
Cersei is one of the better off table characters for the Lannisters, she reduces the morale of an enemy unit by -2 each turn, which can be very useful when forcing a panic test.
At 4 points, she is expensive, but probably the best NCU choice.
The Lannister army is coming along very nicely, with a unit of Guardsmen ready for action.
These are the cheapest Lannister unit, not particularly good in combat and a bit slow, but they do have a decent save. If an attachment is added, it can greatly improve them, I like the the Assault Veteran for subsequent rounds of combat.
