Army concept one: Swamp Kobolds (Kobolds of the cursed swamp)
Theme: Until recently it was believed that life could not exist in the dead forests surrounding the kingdom of Darss. For generations kings in that region have exiled those sentenced to death into the forests never to be seen again. Unknown to these kings the exiles survived and plotted revenge against the kingdom that cast them out. It was not long until they discovered that there were inhabitants of the forest, simple kobolds. They knew nothing of war and were easily manipulated, believing all that the outcasts told them. Now the outcasts have formed an army and lead the Kobolds to war.
Look: Classic Kobold
Playstyle: a horde army that fights about the same as humans when they are concentrating, but with worse courage; especially if you leave them to manage themselves.
Faction ability / trait
Lost Without Command: At the beginning of each of your command phases, after the first, erase a concentration box from each of your units. A unit with no concentration boxes checked suffers a (-1) -1/-0 [-1 courage] penalty and an additional -1/-0 penalty if engaged.
Whenever you direct control a unit, change its standing orders or play a command card on it, you must check all of its concentration boxes.
generic orders: you may discard a command card to recheck all of a units concentration boxes.
Special unit type: horde: Horde units consist of two cards, similar to colossal units. Hordes lose two attacks and courage for being in yellow and four for being in red.
