If anyone is interested, I played some more Kings of War. So with five games under my belt, I'm going to fully admit that my initial aversion to the rules was unfounded, and I am a full-on fan of the game.

I am interested 023 :) I am glad you like KOW...I was misled like you due to the simple rules but it turned out great and I still get to use my minis for a variety of human armies too which is awesome  :mrgreen:  I myself don't like hordes and in fact I had more success with regiments.  It all depends on manouverability that is hampered by having hordes.

Yes, we had some interesting interactions where orc hordes were temporarily stuck and my regiments got a few "hit and run" attacks on them before the grind of combat really started. I still lost, though. Orcs hit hard!  :ph34r:



I couldn't wait and started early on Deadcember. Started at about 11:50pm last night -- Black Friday. Dead Friday?

Just base coat and initial washes on some bones.

Things are going to continue to be focused on the enemies of Marienburg through the end of the year. Working on the dead for Deadcember... even through it's still Whatevember.

The third one in the front row - is that a skeletalized conversion of a classic?

There was a guy in a FB group who was sculpting a skeletal version of the old classic ogre for himself. A bunch of people (me included) suggested/demanded he get it cast. So he took a one-time order for casting, had a bunch made and sold them off.

I believe he said it was the first thing he's ever sculpted! I'll post better pics of them all when they're done.

It's officially Deadcember, and I've officially finished the first of the (un)dead for the season.

Skeletal ogres from (left to right): Ral Partha Europe, Justin from the Oldhammer FB group, Ral Partha Europe, and Krakon Games.




Time is getting a little tighter for me, so I cut a few corners but I still think they all look pretty good!

Next up for Deadcember's paint-a-thon (December is shaping up to involve more painting than the entire rest of the year at this pace) is a group of five skeletons that I believe are old Citadel. I'm not sure, I got them as part of a trade. They are bigger than the Nightmare Legion, but they will probably end up as filling in odd units either in the Legion or elsewhere, as needed. They're really nice sculpts, I wish I had more that were similar to this. I've had no luck in finding old metal skeletons, though -- other than these, obviously. Shields are Empire heaters with the tiny hole filled in & sanded smooth. (So there's an Empire connection to, right...?)

Last time I checked it was much cheaper to collect Nightmare Legion than these guys... and a quick ebay search shows that is still the case.  They look good though! Perhaps use them within a bigger unit as a guard around a character or backing up a command group?

Rapid work on two more figures for Deadcember. And more cheating. ;)

One is a wight that I got in a trade. It was painted very close to my own style, so I just kept the paint, gave him a new shield and base. I think it's another old Citadel figure.



The other is the third of my vulture sculpts. Finally painted after working on the sculpting for many long years, and then the figure has been primed and sitting on my desk since earlier this year. (I got frustrated with his staff and stole the top and bottom from the GW Mordheim sprue.) Going with the limited pallette of the Undeadish again -- but I probably still could have done a little better. Worked on it in little five minute increments, whenever I could get to it, over the past few days. I should get a photo of the three sculpts together.

Got a surprise painted figure from the Oldhammer in the New World holiday trade, and it's awesome!

Amazing.....just amazing. These 3 on a board would have to have a special aura bubble rule or something just for their mere presence.  Most sane armies would turn around and look for a pub after seeing them. 👀

Not much time for painting lately. But wanted to wish everyone who reads my little plog a happy holiday of choice. Or not. Crom does not care.



(Yeah, even recycling my Christmas image/joke from last year... no time for messing around with a new one of those, either. lol )

We're still working on visiting family for the holiday, but had a nice Christmas morning at home. This year I even got closer to receiving a gaming related gift than I have before, with an awesome retro themed Stranger Things t-shirt. ;)



For fun, we all got new "onsie" pajamas to wear for Christmas eve/morn. (I'm sporting a fuzzy wookie pelt.)


A week or two ago, I jumped on the opportunity to pick up a second hand set of Northumbrian Tin Soldier "Time Robbers." I loved these figures the second I saw them (earlier this year?) so even though I shouldn't have been buying myself gifts... I couldn't help myself. They arrived Christmas Eve, so that's also like a Christmas present... to myself. ;)



Of course, this means I need to get the rest of the range, now. :)
