  1. 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
  2. Hi Everyone, I'm new here, been an off and on lurker over the years, and wanted to share some pictures most recently finished models. Before I began, I was looking for ideas on how to decorate the models and a lot of the pictures that I found of these models I didn't think did them justice. So I looked at other treemen models. What I liked the most was using foliage and turf material to create "real" foliage instead of going with just painted metal. I really enjoyed working on the models, it was a lot of firsts for me. The biggest one being water, I have seen a lot of videos about making water scenes and what not. Seeing the model with cattails on it I had to have it coming out of the water. I tried going for a wet dripping algae look. For a first attempt I think it did turned out pretty good. As far as the models go, I wasn't really thrilled with the appearance of the metal vines. So I created my own vines as well, which is another first. Quite fun but tedious and pleased with the look. Cattails were made from parts of floral wheat and tacky glue. Adding foliage to miniatures in general is a first for me as well, all the foliage was self made with colored sawdust and furniture foam. The only thing not made was static grass. The water is Woodland Scenics Realistic Water and their Water Effects. I liked how easy it was and relatively mess free compared to the typical 2 part epoxy that I've seen. After doing these minis I thought of something I am going to attempt on my other 6. I'm going to ditch the metal arms entirely and use floral wire as a support so I can then pose the vines however I want. Lastly, these are going to be a part of my Elven Army and perhaps a start of a Forces of Nature Army for Kings Of War. So these aren't my first models. Just the ones I'm most satisfied with. If you have any suggestions, critiques, or questions let me know.
  3. I will use these GW Plaguebearers as Blood Worms in my Kings of War army. As with nurglings earlier, I painted lots of different skin tones to get some variety within the unit, hoping they still work well together. Table-top painting, not caring much about all the details or super quality.
  4. Another unit for my Swampstalkers I was looking for a suitable alternative for Scarecrows, the cheapest zombie-like unit in my army. These goblins from the Hobbit game looked like a good choice - gnarly, twisted bodies with some wounds, smaller in size than plaguebearers I used for a slightly stronger unit of blood worms (my other infantry unit). And I got them very cheap, second-hand - they already came primed white to me, which saved some time. Lots of different washes, picked some details (mainly eyes and wounds/warts - both with GW blood effect). Swampy base of course, as this is the main theme for my army. Cut some of the models legs off to create an effect of them rising from the mud.
  5. Third unit for my Swampstalkers (Kings of War army). I've used nurglings from GW, and they will be my Swamp Fangs
  6. Second unit for my Kings of War army, Swampstalkers. These GW Dire Wolves will be my Swamp Hounds
  7. Abyssal Dwarf Gargoyle painted to the studio color scheme. Slight improvement in picture quality. C&C welcome.
