Generic Points System to use in Kings Of War Rules

by DaBoss on Fri Jun 10, 2011 11:59 am
Having played a few games at the club and practice games at home, I've come to like the simplicity of the rules and the game dynamic it produces.

No more HeroHammer or huge tomes to look through to see what the rules subsection states, and easy to get a game done in a short space of time.

Unfortunately, in there eagerness to get rules out to use their models, Alessio did a fine job but I do wonder about the costing of some of the units.

Lets take for example a Simple Regiment from the Undead and the Elves (20 strong unit with no Standard Bearer or Musician).

Skeleton Regiment (20)
Sp 5, Me 5+, De 4+, At 10, Ne 6 with Evil Dead, Shambling Horde and Phalanx rules @95pts

Elven Spearmen Regiment (20)
Sp 6, Me 4+, De 4+, At 10, Ne 6 with Elite and Phalanx rules @110pts

Some stats can be ignored as they will have no difference between the effectiveness of each unit.
So the main differences are:
1) Speed - Elves will likely get the charge...

Panzerzug railcar "Kannonen und Flakwagen" WIP

by Spack on Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:23 am
Decided to start on the Artillery and Flakcannon (Kannonen und Flakwagen) railcar for the Panzerzug train in Sketchup. So far the basic hull is pretty much complete, as well as the shell of the turret. Still to do are the flakcannon on the raised area, doors, hatches, and armoured connector to the Kommandowagen.

Rocks and ruined temple Bases.

by Cain Tiberius on Sun Feb 24, 2013 6:41 pm
Ok so I better get round to posting this.

Rocks

Start of by cutting shapes out of various sizes of balsa wood. And stack them up gluing them into your desired size/shape.

Then cover the whole thing with Quick Drying Polyfilla. I thought this was a good idea :-

Warhammer 40k: Campaign

by Baragash on Thu Mar 17, 2011 12:22 pm
So in the summer, myself and Phil hope to play a system-wide campaign.

We'll be running a single planet campaign around Easter just to see how it works.

Anyway, it'll combine:

And of course the normal 40k rules. The plan is to have 5 planets, each consisting of 7 tiles (ie 1 central tile and 6 surrounding tiles), and also run the standard fleet-based campaign rules for BFG.

In an old White Dwarf article, it suggested that to assault a planet a player would attack using BFG's Planetary...

Horus Heresy - Sons of Horus New Year Update

by DaBoss on Wed Jan 01, 2014 2:36 pm
With New Years day bring very wet and grey, perfect time to get the paints out and start adding some colour to my Sons of Horus models.

Starting with 2 coats of Dry Brushed Mechanicus Standard Grey.

Two Squads of 20 Tactical Marines, 10 Support Tactical Marines, 2 Apothecaries and a Praetor

Two Spartans.

Now for a Dry Bush of Dawnstone before going with a coat of Biel-Tan Green wash

You'll notice I'm missing the Quad Lascannon guns from the Spartans, seems that Forgeworld sent me Predator Sponsons wrongly!!
Wondered why the brackets seemed too small - phoned FW on 20th Dec, still waiting for the post to arrive; hopefully before Monday 6th as I wanted to use my Sons of Horus in their first game of WH30K (more like against 40K Chaos Space Marines) in a 2000pt game.
