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...

Malifaux - Avatars

by DaBoss on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:37 am
I haven't got Twisting Fates book yet (was not going to bother), but on reading about the Avatars for each of the different Factions and seeing what the Pandora & Rasputina look like I had a bit of a compulsive purchase (nearly as bad as I have with Games Workshop)....

So I got both and have put them together - Pandora was a bit of effort as it came in 2 metal pieces and 5 resin which did not fit perfectly without a lot of shaping and cutting - but am now really happy with it.

I think Rasputina Avatar of Famine will be quite an easy one to paint, very much like what I did for the Ice Golem then flesh up Rasputina body.

Pandora will be a bit more effort but the contrast between the Tentacles and the Serpent trails will be interesting.
Love the Teenage Candy - will have to think how her clothes will look compared to her...

Panzerzug BP44 Train Day 2

by Spack on Tue May 15, 2012 11:15 pm
Not much progress today, decided to add some track to the model and duplicate the tender (the real train had two tenders, one behind the locomotive and one in front), and add a rough camo texture to the armour plates. Once the chassis frame and buffers are added it will look a lot better, hopefully I'll progress with that tomorrow, and if there's time also add some of the larger hatches and the driver windows and vision slits.

Paper tanks - Tiger II "Konigstiger"

by Spack on Tue Jun 05, 2012 8:47 am
Last night I went looking for free paper tanks in order to supplement the train build, and stumbled across this site: http://www.terra.dti.ne.jp/~yoshidom/ It's in Japanese, but the pics next to the links make it easy to figure out what each free kit is. I grabbed the 1/72 Tiger 2 from here : http://www.terra.dti.ne.jp/~yoshidom/in ... 8-tig2.pdf

Putting the kit together was pretty easy, once I'd seen the instructions for the Panzer IV from the site page (http://www.terra.dti.ne.jp/~yoshidom/in ... -pkw4g.pdf ) as this included the details of what to do with each line. Solid lines are cut, dashed folded outwards, dot-dash folded inwards. Black stars are...

BA Blog 12/03/13 Army Pic so far.

by Cain Tiberius on Tue Mar 12, 2013 9:33 pm
Hi folks. Been moving my models round the house a bit today. One, to protect them from the kids as they grow. And two, to make room for more important things where I had them. But I did take the opitunity to take some pics of the force in its entirety as it currently stands. It is still growing though, so don't be fooled into thinking I've stopped ;)
