Dasconar's Army
Do you ever get tired of seeing endless hordes of disorganized orcs charge forward and get slaughtered by the boatload? Dasconar's army is an organized army of goblins with tactics, formations, and superior training.
About this creation
This is, of course, not the whole army. This is only the different types of units. There are Commanders, Cavalry, Archers, Spearmen, and Swordsmen. All have dark blue uniforms with metal plates on the chest and chainmail below. Seige engineers and catapult men are not shown here, because they are not physically fighting.

First, there are the Spearmen. They are the strongest, and stupidest goblins. They have very large rectangular shields and very long spears. Spearmen wear heavy, thick breastplates and heavy, thick helmets.

Together, multiple spearmen can form a deadly phalanx formation. The goblins would be outmatched in individual fighting, but that is a moot point. The army operates together at all times.

A Swordsmen has the same thick helmet as the Spearmen, but they do not have the breastplate. This allows a better range of motion unnecessary for Spearmen.

Swordsmen also make formations like shield walls. They are very precise and hard to defeat in squadrons.

Goblin Archers are slower than elves in firing speed, but their longbows allow excellent range. They leave few targets alive when firing a volley with in a squadron.

Archers have thinner armor than the other fighting units, and have light helmets for better acuracy with their arrows. I take great pride in my quiver design.

The Goblin Cavalry has wooden lances (with metal tips) instead of all metal ones. This allows better manuverability. They have the thinner, lighter helmets for better speed. Besides, on a horse they don't have to worry about getting hit in the head much.

As a secondary weapon, the Cavalry have swords. Their sheilds have the slits in the edges for catching enemy weapons. If a horse charges by and someone's spear gets stuck in the shield, the spear will be ripped from their grasp. Also, twisting the shield can be a disarming maneuver with the special shield.

General Dasconar is the General. He has other commanders beneath him, but he has brilliant tactics. Since his prefered weapon is not as easily visible as a lance with a banner, he uses the latter to lead his troops.

In his finely crafted armor, Dasconar wields his saber with deadly skill. He is an elite fencer, and can best many opponents in single combat.

Xanorail, the traitorous Dark Elf is General Dasconar's closest friend. He wears a tattered black cloak and black robes. Xanorail wields an ancient family relic, a thin saber. He taught and can best General Dasconar in single combat.

Here are the backs of the army's troops. Now you can see my wonderful quiver design.

The goblins in Dasconar's Army march off to war! Fight for freedom!

How's this for a final picture? General Dasconar leading his troops through murky grass and plants, rallying them with his saber. I customized it because I think it looks really cool now and better fits his weapon of choice. It can still be an effective fencing saber, but is long and broad enough to fit a goblin.

Bonus points to anyone who can guess which historical army I based this one off of.

Quoting Max Williams ditto to all those comments! Also- your shield is awesome along with the bow spear and....QUIVER! i hope you don't mind ill probably use it in my army and if i ever post pics ill give you total credit. My guess is the Macedonians.
Thank you for your appreciation. I would be honored for you to use my designs, so long as I get credit. And..Bingo! Macedonians it is. Romans, a bit also for the swordsmen, but spears and cavalry are Macedonian.
