How do I Start?

Recommended Posts

Warlord, of course.

The rules.

A couple of D10's.

Someone else to play with.

Some scenery (you can build it).

 

A lot of fun.

A path with no return.

You've been warned.

What you'll love more in Warlord is the fact that while you'll try to get the minis you find the most beautiful or evocative, those you don't like or can't find, you'll just say, I'll use this one for that role and it works like a charm. No unique army composition dictatorship here.

What Bayushiseni said, plus a few small d6 for tracking damage and a small tape measure.

 

There was a thread earlier this year with ideas on what factions you could make from the basic Vampire package. That might be worth hunting down.

Check the army lists. They both have the same rules. But the army lists are different. I don't own either so i can't tell you for sure which has which. Maybe if you said what type of fantasy armies you'd like?

 

Pretty big review here, maybe it will help? http://wargameguru.weebly.com/in-focus-review---warlord-2nd-editionsavage-north.html

 

If you want undead, for example, SE has both the undead factions: Nefsokar Egyptian undead, and Necropolis which is a huge faction with stacks of traditional undead.

Hi prophetic_joe!

I agree with smokingwreckage. Look through the army list and pick out one, or several, that you are interested in and then pick up the book that contains that army. If you end up being interested in armies from each, well, pick a priority and go with it.

 

Also, if the more economical choice would be preferable, W2 is less expensive, and if I recall the Vampire Box has many figures included in a couple of W2 armies. (Reven and Nefsokar if I recall correctly, but then I may be comp,etely wrong.)

 

Hmmmm, that sounds like a good piece of stray info that would be usefull to confirm! And another reason to sit in the middle of all my bones and count/sort them!

Crusaders are pretty well represented in the Vamp box as well, especially when combined with the templar knight that is already available in Bones.

I've noticed that. I finally got a chance today to start my inventory and am a third the way though. I think I counted a half dozen paladins. :-)

Mercenaries in the original book too. BUT werewolves in Savage North, plus SN Dwarves are more what I think dwarves aught to be, and SN Orcs are more to my taste (and more the now-traditional big green bruisers) than the SE Orcs. If you go to the Reaper online store and select figures-warlord from the top menu bar, then go over to the right, where you have big red buttons, one is Warlord and it has a drop-down arrow?

 

Click the arrow.

 

You can now view models by faction! The SN Orcs are Kargir, the SE are Reven. SN Dwarves are Kragmarr, SE are Dwarves. If someone who knows better could list the factions by book, that'd help? Worth noting, the SE factions are often broader in scope, with a lot of models and more than one theme to build to. The SN factions are more focused.
