My players named one (their only) unit of archers "The burning arrows of
silence" - if you ask me It´s a pretty dum name...
My Osoerde´s got the "Black pikes of Algael" (a bit better,I think) and had
first and second units of "Brothendar Axemen" (who were embarasingly razed
in both units they were in...).
