That is an excellent suggestion and I don't mind making some cardboard pieces to fight it out. BTW: I quite understand about depending on what my play style is like will determine the next faction. That's what I like about the Nefsokar. I can go totally undead with mummies, anabis, etc. or go with a desert raiding party of herdsmen, light horse archers, etc. Or to be really brutal...go with both.
I think I will use the dwarves and see if they can hold up to an avatar...I'll post what happens. Thanks again for the great idea.
