Cards are great aids for gaming. I have started making cards for several games even for normal gaming. It really helps getting new people involved as well, as they can more easily check stats and rules.

Looking forward to seeing the Marienburgers finished, cool looking unit filler.

I know you will play this game with 9th age rules and I will not try to convince you otherwise, but I just have to say that Kings of War would very probably be a great fit for a game of this size, where having to keep track of each individual infantryman is probably not the most important thing.

Good to listen (read) how cards can improve the game!

Regarding the game system... I cannot give you my opinion abour Kings of War, because I never taste it. In fact, I'm totally focused on painting, modelling and preparing all kind of things around this battle. The truth is, 9th Age doesn't make me happy at all. But here, as well as the rest of the world community -I suppose- ald warhammer players are completely scattered  in different game systemes: 9th Age, Age of ****, 6th ed., 8th ed., Kings of War, Warhammer 8.5, Manuscritos de Nuth, Warhammer Reforged, and now Rune Wars.. It's crazy.  :icon_frown:
But 9th Age goes now even and even far from 8th edition, a I don't like it. KoW has no community in Barcelona, and sicerely, I have no time -almost at this moment- to spent time learning another rulebook. And the rest are also poorly supported here.
My own opinion: I want to come back to 8th edition. Simply. But this is something I have to talk with my little gnobla... ouch! friends!

They are fanmade rulebooks in spanish. Warhammer Reforged is based on 8th edition (as well as Warhammer 8.5), and Manuscritos de Nuth is based on 6th edition but includes all types of new troops appeared until The End Times.
I don't tested them yet, but I prefer playing 8th edition, internationally known, before playing a system with very a narrow community.

That steam tank rider is going to hurt himself when he slides down the side of the tank.
Is that Generals on war eagles I spy behind the Coach ?

I have a spare American Bell, as per link, if she is for any use.

Is that door on a working hinge?

Would the DoW Belladonna model work?

No, he will not fall, he's a badass...  :icon_cool: hehehe
Yes they are, pics below!
Thanks for the link, but I prefer a Citadel model on this specifical case, and, as Warlord says, Belladona seems to be suitable on that matter.

No, in fact is the rear door f the Black Coach!
Yes she will. Pep (Drakenhof), has this model. But now he's working on Naggaroth, so, I will have to sit and wait for him. And for her. Carolina Herrera.


Great painting. The colors look so deep and rich.

Thanks Elswood, but this is an ancient pic! look at the page 12  :icon_wink:

What set is the animal head helmet from. 3rd picture down.
Another choice for the lady. Bretonnian Fay Damsel, remove sword from right hand, and have the chalice out the window for refill.

This head is from the Empire general/battle dtandardbearer plastic box, if I'm not wrong...
And yes, she is another possibility. In fact, Citadel range of women human models is saddly short. My options are:

- Lucrezia Belladonna
- Classic Morgana Le Fay model
- Vampire from the Coven Throne (any of them could suitable)







And no, this is not an option...

In regards the griffons, quantity has an inherent quality. Now when you paint them all up in your quite skilled manner they will assume a value well above their individualistic worths.  steveb

Yes, that's a good point Doc...  :icon_lol: But even with the largest lance this rider couldn't fight against anybody.


Thak you all guys. This project had entered in a difficult phase, because I have not a lot of time to work in it. But can't build an empire on a sigle day!
