I had a request to do a Lykian (Lycian, Lukka) board for our Iliad project. However, it has been a week coming - since I've started a new job. However, the wait was worth it (I hope) and I have drawn up a board that is pretty close to the Achaean one, with the addition of the 'Apollo' ability - one of Apollo's epithets was Lycian Apollo - and the 'Chiron' ability, like all the other factions get in Saga Iliad.
Jason has been running his Lykians as allies to his Trojans. However, I feel that does not do them full justice. Their leader, Sarpedon, was brother to Minos (as in King Minos of Crete) and a son of Zeus. He was also the grandson of Bellorophon, by his mother. He had some pretty good speaking parts in the Iliad. Rebuking Hector as the Lkyians pick up the slack and drive the Achaeans almost back to their ships:
Or his death at the hands of Patroklus:"Hector," said he, "where is your prowess now? You used to say that though you had neither people nor allies you could hold the town alone with your brothers and brothers-in-law. I see not one of them here; they cower as hounds before a lion; it is we, your allies, who bear the brunt of the battle. (Iliad book I)
...for he hit Sarpedon just where the midriff surrounds the ever-beating heart. He fell like some oak or silver poplar or tall pine to which woodmen have laid their axes upon the mountains. (Iliad Book XIII)
The Historical Lykians were probably the Lukka, who are known to be one of the Sea Peoples (the Bronze Age Collapse is possibly even their fault!), along with possibly the Mycenaeans, and this particular lot used to levy tribute from Crete. Given the Mycenaeans were pretty much Vikings and the Lukkans seemed to carry that as far as getting a 'Danegeld' from Crete, I've based their board heavily on the Viking one.
Armies in the the heroic age have two broad groupings: Aristoi (the Warlord and his Hearthguard companions) and freeman warriors. All will be equipped similarly. Even a freeman can afford light armour, shield and Spear. This is in the familiar style of visual (that I remember from my school age reading) representation of the Illiad – based on pottery from the Classical period. Handily, this fits well with existing 28mm plastic Hoplites (available from two companies, with more planned). However, miniatures do exist that reflect archaeological evidence of the Mycenaeans, in both metals and 1/72 'soft plastic'. Those plastics are very well done.
Lykian armies may also have followers, hangers on and skirmishers recruited from amongst the barbarians, lower social orders and rural folk. These troops cannot stand against a well equipped warrior if caught in melee but are skilled in sling or bow. They do not often appear in heroic tales but had their role to play on the battlefield.
Your Warlord may choose to be mounted. If mounted, he changes his movement to L but has -1 armour vs shooting.
Lykian Apollo's Warriors
One unit of up to eight warriors may have bows. If so, they have -1 armour vs shooting.
Trojan armies may also have followers, hangers on and skirmishers recruited from amongst the neighbouring peoples, lower social orders and rural folk. These troops cannot stand against a well equipped warrior if caught in melee but are skilled in sling or bow. They do not often appear in heroic tales but had their role to play on the battlefield.
