The Messenger – Lion Rampant AAR

Posted on July 24th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Don’t kill the messenger, that’s what I kept saying. Would K. listen? No. But let’s start at the beginning. Last weekend we finally inaugurated the old table in the new flat and had a game of Lion Rampant. After having a go at the scenario ‘The Messenger’ with Mick, I decided to introduce it to … Continue reading The Messenger – Lion Rampant AAR

“Nothing is surer in war than losses.” – Common human saying With all of the new models coming out, it’s easy to overlook some of the smaller additions to the game that we’ve made. Also on pre-order this month is a new set of damage trackers for Kings of War. In Kings of War, individual […]

Go-Go-Gadget Golem

Posted on July 22nd, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Black stone-giants that tower over the battlefield, these monsters thunder against the enemy under the control of the Iron-casters that animated them. Alongside the Elves release, the darkling hordes of the Abyssal Dwarfs are also gaining huge support. You might even call this a colossal release. Today we look at the model so large that we’re weren’t even […]

Unstoppable constructs of wood, foliage, mud and stone, these great trees march against the enemies of the Elven realms. Though slow to anger, when awoken they are mighty and determined defenders of their woodland homes. Today’s blog focusses on a new model for not one, but two armies – the Forest Shamblers. These large tree-men are Large Infantry units in […]

Visiting a Vauban Fortress

Posted on July 17th, 2015 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

We’ve been living near some of the most spectacular Vauban fortresses for years and never managed to make the trip. However, the fascinating series of articles on Gravelines by Henry Hyde in Miniature Wargames finally inspired me to rent a car. K. was willing to come along, so shortly before we moved house, we headed for Neuf-Brisach, which … Continue reading Visiting a Vauban Fortress

We’ve been showing you all of the exciting new stuff but then it occurred to us that Kings of War has been going for quite a while and therefore quite a few of the new members of the Kings of War community may not have seen where it all began. So we are going to […]

Preparing for War II – Ronnie

Posted on July 11th, 2015 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

We march together… One of the big decisions for me was deciding to put them on unit bases. This was something I had resisted the first time I started painting this army (about 4 years ago when Mantic launched the Dwarfs) – back then I still used 20mm bases for each model. It was about […]

Preparing for War II – Sunny

I would like to explain what I expected when I played Kings of War for the first time. Now I am going to be absolutely truthful, my first impressions of the game were not great. Why, you might ask? Well, I thought the game looked far too simple and at first didn’t like the concept […]
