bit of threadromancy, i thoroughly approve.
I'm using the old GW Ariel-queen of the woods model. i know a lot of people don't like it, but I do.

If you're into the whole fairy thing then I saw this at PAW last weekend - very pretty Smiley

yep Smiley you should too! Though I don't think it has much in it you can't get elsewhere online...

I ordered me a dragon at last. The first figure I saw online and the one that inspired me to go buy mantic stuff, but could never justify buying until now. Yay!
6  Kings of War / Game Rules / Re: Playing around with alternating activations on: January 14, 2012, 05:43:51 am
ever since I played Void way back in the day I've liked the idea for alternative activation games, and I can't tell you how much I cursed KoW for not going for it and breaking the IGOUGO mould.

I'm just worried about two things. Table clutter with the extra markers, and adding time to the game. In your playtest did things take much longer?

Also, some thoughts.
1) army initiative. A straight dice off is a bit mean when shambling undead have just as much chance to hold initiative as dashing and valiant elveses. Perhaps it should be D6+x (x = army initiative value, for example Elvseses 3, Humans 2, Undead 1?)
2) Just wondered why you went for upto three units a turn rather than just one per turn? IMO until you get into combat there's not much point activating more than one unit as it makes it much easier for you to counter your enemy's manouvers if you can move all your troops last.

I have to say that the more I'm painting elves the more I like them. In fact, I think I'm secretly trying to justify buying the Dragon to myself.

I reckon that bolt throwers are over pointed when you can take scouts. I'd second Matt's point about Cavalry, the troops are just too damned fragile. However, I would consider Drakons rather than Stormwinds.

The pics are in posts 1720 and 1724.

Was unimpressed, myself. Lucky really seeing as how I've sworn never to give them money ever again!

welcome to the fanatics Smiley
12  The Games Room / Army Lists / Re: 2000 Point Elf List (With Lots of Firepower) on: December 24, 2011, 07:22:38 am
Lots of troops though Smiley There's something in me that likes the sight of a true horde of elves. None of this 'dying race' rubbish!

I think I'd probably amalgamate at least two of those bow troops into a single regiment, possibly two. They're still pretty good infantry if anything sneaks around the flanks of your spear hordes. Plus frees up points for other things, maybe a Drakon?
13  Painting & Modelling / Work in Progress / Re: Basing for KOW - Full regiment or 5 man strips? on: December 15, 2011, 03:11:43 pm
For me storage isn't the problem, rather the safe transport, otherwise I too would be tempted to go for full regiment bases.
14  The Games Room / Army Lists / Re: First Undead List 1500 pts on: December 12, 2011, 03:49:53 pm
Cool list. It's pretty solid, but were it me i'd drop a necromancer in favour of another skelly regiment.
On the other hand, you won't get disappointed by those rev cav, they kick serious ass Smiley
15  Kings of War / Elves / Re: Help me design a 500 point demo army on: December 11, 2011, 11:07:30 pm
prince, stormwind troop plus command, 2 scout troops, spear regiment plus command.

small, fast and hard hitting units are what elves say to me anyway Smiley
