Re: 2nd Edition Kings of War release

I'm very impressed after reading this - I'm actually excited about wargaming again. The rules feel like 4th through 6th edition Warhammer, but cleaned up and a lot less exploitable. I'm not seeing anything inherently broken so far.

Is the helmet grey or gold? It looks washed out in that lighting. Can you show us some lightbox pics? :3

The blue really stands out though - good stuff!

OMG which corner of the internet have you been hiding in? He's right - mostly WoT, along with a bunch of other PC games. I still paint though, but most of it is just to sell. I'm thinking I'll have to repaint my HE force at one point too - the difference between old and new is almost painful for me...

I think that's the main point for new gamers to take from this thread - if you do download a netlist, understand which comp system it was designed for and have a working knowledge of how it works.

Re: 40k Dark Vengeance Boxed Set a Good Start for Marines?

I'm actually painting this kit for a local hobby shop right now. I would say the tactical marines that come in the box are slightly more detailed than the standard kit. There are some unique heroes as well and they generally have a slightly higher level of detail, but slightly less than a character ...

His army bores me - too traditional and conventional. The only thing unusual in it is the big block of Spearelves. Looks well painted from a distance though! :3
