Runic and I play a lot together so it was good for us to have a competitive battle. Normally in tournaments we rank just far enough that we hardly face each other bar once. This time however we got paired for round 1.
"Low and behold it is yet another army raised from the land of the Elves, we shall thwart them as we have many times but be warned, for Elf trickery knows no bounds and it is through that trickery that we have lost many men before." - Swastakowey's Top Wench before battle.
A while back now I decided to jump into KOW with Kindoms of Men and found these Samurai going for half price. After a few weeks of speed painting and late nights I manged to get these finished and ready for the first Tournament. I went with the most brightest colours I could and easiest scheme I could paint and this was the result.
Of course I quickly moved on to Basileans and much prefer them. Most of these troops are self explanatory but the infantry are usually used as whatever I need them to be.
Very few (if any) bases have the appropriate number of soldiers since the terrain and groupings really restricted the number of soldiers I could fit without it looking silly. I think the hordes combined have less than 60 soldiers (should be 80) one having 33 and the other 26 I think?
This was also shared on The Fields of Blood Which has a lot of other cool KOW related stuff on there.
The Frogs of Mantica are sick of being cuisine for the other races and are finally rising up, fighting the Elves who dare venture to hunt them for their delicious (well so they say) Frog Legs. Little did the Elves know these amphibians had rallied together and formed the largest force of frogs ever found under one banner in Mantica. Too many legs have been lost.
Horrific victim of the Frog hunting raids
I think I may have played the largest amount of Frogs in one list in KOW so far, taking a whopping 152 Frogs backed by 2 Coral Giants. Obviously not a serious list but as all my opponents know I am a HUGE FAN OF RIVER GUARD. Something about the unit just sticks out to me. So it was only a matter of time before I made an army of the little guys. Anyway so here are the Lists:
The Random Number Generator has spoken and decided that the Tree Herder is next on the chopping block. The Tree Herder can be found in the Elf and Forces of Nature lists. Lets look at his profile and pull it apart.
The Naiad Ensnarers can be found among the Nertican and Forces of Nature lists, they are one of the more unique basic units in Kings of War. So before we go into it any further lets take a look at this units profile and abilities.
