Following Orbin, I'm migrating Francois here, I've modded him a bit, lost the bravura and added a touch more flair - mostly for fun flavor purposes. Sorry Orbin you'll want to change your link.
Mostly complete. He wields a Mage's rapier without actual proficiency, and polymorphs his clothes into Imposter's plate armor again without proficiency (-2 Ref and -2 attack rolls), and he's not really strong enough to wield a light shield let alone a heavy one, but guess what, he does. Quite the harlequin, he's not your usual warlord by any stretch of the imagination, but he really believes himself to be the world's next famous wizard and the world's next best swordsman. Hmm. I suppose we shall see.

You have me on as a Dwarven Wrathvoker, although I believe sartezalb wished to do that, I was looking at another leader. However, that seems like a perfectly good idea, as I have one already built from another game and I'd be the only controller.
I'll have him up as soon as I can. Hope you don't mind sartezalb?
@Rich - Sartezalb is on the wait list now, Joe_Puff is in with a Drow Paladin currently interacting with Brys's Kane by the Skyspire mountains. You can do whichever char you like. Mine has lost a lot of his warlord-ness in favor of rogue flavor.
Orbin, I remediated my basic attack through a Dilettante Eldritch Strike. So I'm back in the basic attack game. It's not overly fabulous, but it's decently average (+17 vs AC, 1d8+9 and slide target 1 square).
@Rich - I think "the more the merrier" applies to warlords as well. With 2.5 there's a good chance somebody's awesomely buffed at all times, and what's more perhaps we'll discover some unbeforeseen exquisite synergy, like granting 3-5 attacks to Kane not counting his turn, all while he has something like a +7 to attack and a +6 to damage rolls. Something like that.
(Of course, AoE attacks and status effects are useful too...)
Attack = +18 to hit, +20 with Brash Strike 6(lvl)+2(prof)+2(enhancement)+1(lyrandar-windrider when using a lightning power)+5(Str)+1(Expertise)+1(Fighter Weapon Talent)= +18 to hit.
Damage = 1d8+16 (14 on bursts (no armbands), and 20 on brash strike (+4 for Con with an axe) 5(Str)+2(enhancement)+2(armbands)+3(shard)+4(Con via Lyrandar Windrider)=+16 damage
Not having my weapon active on lightning reduces all my attacks by 1 and all my damage numbers by 4. Of course, my attacks all slide 2 as well, and I get CA from, sliding a guy, so I'm going to love me some granted attacks :D

Ah, the PP, it's always the PP that adds the inexplicable weirdness. I grant some attacks too, so you'll want to stay adjacent to guys either of us are on. (Although he's a better, stronger attack granter, Francois' just a wannabe.)
