Over at the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group, the colonials presented a challenge to paint up 200 points of a new army each calendar month. The points must adhere to 3rd or 4th edition Warhammer. I no longer play either, but I do collect Undead and like an excuse to paint them – so I am going to join in. As the ruleset doesn’t matter to me, I’m going to blog the progress with information for both rulesets for pleasure and thematics – and since I actually use my undead for Kings of War, for that too!

So at the start of the year I blogged about starting a herd army for Kings of War. I mentioned that I had plans for an Avatar of the Father model, using an unreleased model from Mierce Minatures, Sia. Well after asking nicely, I finally received the model recently and got to work on building and painting it. This post hopefully will review the model and show you how I’ve got it battle ready.
Last weekend saw the second half of a Kings of War event being hosted at the Aftermath Club in Norwich. After blogging the first part, I took the opportunity on the day to get more photos, army lists and the full results to share in this blog.
You can see what happened in the first part here: Aftermath Club : Kings of War Tournament part 1
So despite playing war games for a silly amount of years, I’ve never really taken part in the tournament scene. Partly this was due to not wanting to be slave to the current meta in a given game, but also finding most games to be a lot less fun in a very competitive setting.
I recently received my Forces of Nature starter army as part of the Kings of War kickstarter. When it turned up and I started looking through it, it occurred to me that I hadn’t seen much in the way of pictures of the contents anywhere so I thought I’d take some picture and do some quick blue-tac assemblies of what things looked like. The mat I’ve used it on the 1cm square side up so that’ll give you additional idea of sizes.
