Introduction to the Faction
“Better a castle of bones, than a castle of stones”
Highland and Island Scots were warriors to the bone. Their ancestors were a mix of warlike Celtic tribesmen and Viking soldier-seafarers, and the two cultures had fused together to create a violent society of tempestuous, ruddy skinned men. Life in these parts was based around subsistence agriculture, fishing and hunting, fighting and feuding. This was a world in which conflict was a part of daily life.
Far from their Scandinavian brothers, stuck in the middle of a warring Britain, these Islanders are at the door step of opportunity or destruction. Two kings, each with his own agenda and realm, but together sharing a common Viking ancestry and warrior spirit, Harold Olafsson and Ruaidhri Somerland, sit together as Norsemen and lead their people against the majority of English, Welsh, Irish, and Scottish inhabitants of the Isles. It will take a strong leader to unite the Kingdoms of Mann and the Hebrides in order to survive and prosper in this bitter place.
The Lordship of the Isles will rely on reckless and powerful infantry however the challenge this faction would have is to deal with enemy cavalry force along having no horsemen.

Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
The Galloglaich are the greatest warriors in the Kingdom of the Isles, and possibly all of Britain. These men were of great strength, size, and courage. Each Galloglaich strikes an imposing figure, wielding a massive two-handed axe. More than any other piece of his equipment, it was the axe that symbolized the battlefield power of the Galloglaich. Their responsibility was 'to take the van and rearguard of the army'. The Galloglaich’s primary battlefield role was to lead the vanguard in the attack, and form the rearguard in retreat. Whatever the size of the force they served, their role remained the same. The Galloglaichs were disciplined, skilled and ferocious, and are a force to be feared on any battlefield.
