Not to mention the good dragons who could plow though the rotting bodies. We also have to remember that the undead are kinda dumb.... so a good wizard and some heavy attacks with dragons sould depleat the armies.


"Not to mention the good dragons who could plow though the rotting bodies."

...wow, and i could totally see that happening!


The Undead wouldn't move fast enough, or be self aware enough to react in time...

And another Wizard, like Majisto the blue Wizard, would have counter spells that could control or weaken the reanimation spells over the Undead.

Seriously, the Undead would be in so much trouble against the dragons and wizards of another Castle army.

Yah, i know!!!

I really thought the Vikings would resonate with people, i thought that if given the chance, the Vikings would garner lotsa votes... i personally like them a lot, and i think they're some solid and rock hard troop choices!

I said vikings. After all the vikings would have total rule of the seas, not to mention that since they deal with dragons and other such monsters on a daily basis they know how to handle them!

Well, most of the different factions existed in different eras, so for the moment we'll just include the beasts with the Vikings.

Someone earlier brought up the lack of archers and cavalry, but the siege weapons and ridable beasts make up for it.

Now, as a leader of Legions of Darkness, it's the vikings that would make me the most nervous to face. They have a relatively large army (45 soldiers, numerous gigantic siege weapons, and 7 monstrous beasts are nothing to sneeze at in the Lego world) and an individual ferocity that makes each individual warrior a one man army. Of course, being evil and violent, vikings will generally flock to my Legions, so it's not as if I'm worried or anything.

C'mon, name me a faction with over 45 men and more siege weapons than you can shake a stick at. Plus, they're Danish.

Argument over.

I don't like the undead or anything... but if they are "undead" then they can't die either. Seems as though that fact would give them domination.

Still, there isn't much a broken skeleton can do in the way of world domination.

My third place choice would be the Black Knights. I think they are the single toughest Castle faction TLC has ever produced.

My second place choice goes to the Undead. They can win a war of attrition and they have dragons and a wizard.

My first place choice has to be the Vikings. 'Nuff said.

The Vikings had the chess set, bringing the galic hordes number up to a frightening 51! :shock: But wait, the black knights total is 52! :shock: :shock:
But the Crusaders have even more! A mind boggling 78! :shock: :shock: :shock: And the "great black falcons only have 29 (I think)... Oh my head...

One weakness for vikings though, they lack ranged infantry...

I gonna go for the Castle 2007 guys. Seeing how they have dwarves on their side and they are battling a very formidable enemy, I think they must be strong.

I'm going with Donut on this one. I picked the Undead because the crown knights were unavailable. The crown knights have a good mix of infantry/calvary/archers/heavy artiler and IMO their fortress rivals the classics. I think most importantl fact is that they are engaged in a constant war against a strong enemy. Fighting the undead legions would make them more war hardened and fit for battle. Not to mention their armor is freaking awesome!
