There’s nothing new finished to report here this week. Starting a new job while trying to recover from a bad dose of man flu has severely sidetracked me from the Frostgrave project this last couple of weeks – so much so I’ve not managed anything new.
I’ve tried to keep going but admittedly found it too much like hard work. This means I’ve spent more time planning than painting.
With the death of Warhammer I’ve decided I want to give KOW a go next year. To add to my list of Frostgrave miniatures I fancy doing some quick Undead, Dwarf and Orc Armies to use with KOW.
There’s no way I can paint what I’d already planned for next year on top of all this of course so the Nick Lund Orc Army I’ve been collecting is going on a back burner for now. It’ll give me chance to acquire more figures for it which is no bad thing, I really fancy adding some wolf riders and more archers which will take some time to source at sensible prices.
I know some of you play KOW and I’d be interested on your thoughts and experiences with it. I assume 2nd Ed is the best version to get? Is the hardback 2nd Ed book worth getting for the background fluff or is it better to forget all about that and stick with the sofback version that just covers the rules? How does it play in comparison to WFB? Opinions greatly welcomed!
Obviously trying to paint 3 armies within a year and finishing my Frostgrave project is going to be a real push but as Baldrick would say ‘I have a cunning plan’… More of which I will reveal in the New Year.
Anyway, for those of you I don’t communicate with beforehand here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year. Please keep visiting my blog when it continues with a regular weekly update in early January!
In the meantime with nothing new to show you here’s a group shot I found lurking on my memory card of some of the miniatures I’d finished towards the end of last year – just look how shiny and new my cutting mat looked!
