Hooray for the halfling army - now with some cav
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:17:54 PM »
I really like the massive multibases that they're using in Kings of War, and I decided to raise a few units that will eventually hopefully turn into an army.
The first unit is on a 20x8 cm base. It's made of a wonky fishtank base, cut down remodelled and repainted. Also a bit small for regular 28mm humans, but it looks just fine with the Halflings.



More soon!

That really is a great diorama piece, especially considering its origins.
It looks perfect for the 'Flings.
 :-* :-*

As it is a unit that will be moving across the table (presumably) I imagine that it will also be quite amusing to see the reactions of any casual observers coming back for another look a few turns later.

That's a great looking scene!

How does that work in the game? I've never played Kings of War, does height of a unit make a difference?

It's a bit like DBA. There are - i think - 3 different height types, but the work on the base doesn't affect the height in-game.

Lovely work more like a diorama than your average gaming unit. Do you do all your gaming at home? because you are going to need some funky carry case foam to transport that unit to a club night game ;).

 I usually insert micro magnets into the bases and drop them on a large oven tray and into the car. That said - I barely do any gaming these days!
