I had this wish to go back to mass fantasy wargaming after not playing for many, many years. Middlelife crisis, I suppose. Warhammer was dead, Age of Sigmar did not appeal to me, so I decided to try Kings of War. Mantic Games released the 3rd edition in October 2019 and after reading positive reviews and watching few battle reports on YT I thought I'd go with their game. It is mass fantasy, doesn't require a lot of free time as games are quite fast, and it is played with units rather than individual models, so one can make nice scenic bases with models fixed permanently. It all sounds promising. I had a lot of GW Nurgle models and decided to use them to build a Nightstalkers army, which is a demonic, nightmarish army with lots of monsters. Had to buy some more miniatures and want to get even more but I have enough to start building an army. Hoping for a good progres, but no specific goals were specified. So, the first unit in my Swampstalkers army (as I've named it) are Swamp Worms (original name: Blood Worms). I'm using GW plaguebearers. Now, for those not familiar with the game: units may be taken in four different sizes (troop, regiment, horde, legion). Every level has its own base size and number of models. In this case, I can use Swamp Worms as a regiment (base is 100x80mm and should have 15-20 models on it), horde (base is 200x80mm and should have 30-40 models on it) and/or legion (base is 200x120mm and should have 45-60 models on it). After some planning I decided to use two 100x80 bases and two 100x40 bases, which allows me to field 1 horde of Swamp Worms, 1 legion + 1 regiment, or 3 regiments. Sounds complicated but it really isn't As you can see, I failed to fit 15 plagubearers on the regiment base and I won't make it even after taking them of their individual bases. Oh well, previous editions allowed for lower number of models and in Poland (50%+1) is commonly used as a minimal number of models (in accordance with the 2nd edition), so 12 should be enough. Infantry regiment in theory should have 20 models, so the minimal number would be 10+1=11. I always knew math would come in handy one day Keep your fingers crossed, I do need some motivation
almost done need to add some shades to tie colors in more same as above 30 or so miniatures at this point need to add crimson red base coat to other halfof cloth and start highlighting areas the shading same as above i have about 30 at the point where they are needing the crimson red added on and highlighting.
