    The Undead Legion of Countess Ludmila von Karnstein

    Those banners are amazing! Any tips for the rest of us when it comes to painting freehand banners?

    Kings of War is great, I'll be sticking with it for sure. Age of Sigmar, well, I'm sure it's a good game in it's own way, but it's not Warhammer and it's not a massed combat, ranks and flanks style game so I'm not interested. Plus the models are silly expensive. There's not a lot of activity...

    Making Kings of War great

    Yes! Half a dozen stat line differences and different special rules aren't really needed, IMO.

    2K Tournament Battle Report

    What are they like to play on? I've really only ever used the static grass mats. I've been thinking about getting some of the mouse pad style gaming mats as an easy way to diversify my gaming table. Can I ask how much the knights set you back? You practically have to sell your firstborn child...

    2K Tournament Battle Report

    Looks like some great games, and can I say how very nice your army looks! I particularly like those Soul Reavers! Were they chinacast ones?

    Making Kings of War great

    Flavour, IMO, is found in modelling, painting and back story. Not in rules. One of the things I really like about Kings of War is that there is no functional difference between Hexwraiths and Bloodknights. They are both super cavalry units that kill stuff dead. Maybe it's because of my bias...

    Strange sized models from 8e

    50x50 for characters and monsters is just a guideline. You can go bigger if you want. I'm using my Mortis Engine as a Revenant King on an Undead Wyrm with the Wings upgrade. The 'fly' special rule represents it's ethereal movement, the Revenant King's abilities provide magical support to nearby...

    Kings of War Background Discussion

    Well, you've got to remember that GW had what, 25 years to refine their background? Back in the day it was just as rough as Kings of War. I think I like that the KoW background is written very much with the idea of it being a setting for a wargame in mind, where a lot of the WHFB stuff was...

    Any 'true' KoW armies started yet?

    True, I can't argue that :)

    Sculpting wood boxes

    Why not just make it out of balsa wood? Surely it's got to be easier than sculpting one from greenstuff or something?

    So, what's everyone working on?

    I've been working on a few scale models for display recently. I've finished a TIE Fighter, Y Wing and X Wing from Bandai in 1/72 scale, and I'm working on a 1/48 AT-ST at the moment. Wargaming wise I've been doing a lot of theory-hammering at the moment, working out a new Elf or Dwarf list for...

    1500 Point Undead List

    Magic items are always going to change in actual value because their utility is going to change, depending on what unit they are equipped on. One of the main ways to deal with flying units (particularly ones with Def 6) is shooting them with piercing attacks. And taking The Fog really helps to...

    1500 Point Undead List

    Looks pretty good to me. Maybe see if you can find points for a horse for the Vampire for a bit more mobility and to let him keep pace with the Soul Reavers if need be?

    Kings of War Tournament List 2000pts

    First, I don't think you can take the Touch of Darkness upgrade unless you include the Mhorgoth special character. Second, the zombie legion is probably only going to survive three or four rounds of combat. I don't think the Ensnare special rule is going to be enough to push that out to five or...

    Any 'true' KoW armies started yet?

    Only two special characters for the undead :( Mhorgoth the Necromancer and Lady Ilona the Vampire. I think they're both available on their website, but like anything Mantic just feel free to use whatever models you want :)
