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.
Category: Forces of Nature
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.
I’ve been enjoying the fresh and simple approach to fantasy wargaming that Kings of War has provided me for around a year now. I’ve been slowly tweaking my army collections to take advantage of the forces available in that game, so while my undead are seeing some minor changes and options, my wood elves have been more dramatically impacted.
Neil of Orange here with a hobby update. I’ve been playing with various fire effects recently, for two different styles.
I did some internet research and found an excellent 2 part tutorial from hot-lead.org, you can find Part 1 and Part 2 here. I was planning a very traditional fire effect initially so this was perfect and I was even using Reaper minis too. My Bones kickstarter bundle came with a huge fire elemental and I managed to find a second so I had a pair of the monsters to paint. These chaps are destined for my Kings of War Forces of Nature army but I sadly wasn’t happy with the translucent red they came in.
