Last gaming of the year took place this past Saturday at my local shop. After a year of building, painting, basing etc. I was finally able to take the miniatures for a run! I supported the Mantic Kings of War kickstarter in the fall of 2012 and once the minis started showing up in the post I knew it would be a long project LOL.
To be honest, I haven't played a mass combat fantasy game in probably 20 years (Warhammer 2nd or 3rd edition most likely?). But, I was intrigued by Mantic's new rules and affordable minis...so I decided to make it one of those long-term projects. And alas, after a year of slowly working on it...games were afoot!
I won't get into a review of the rules this posting: I will admit I am not a rules lawyer or junkie and really just like to have fun and move minis around. In that light, I believe I am going to be a fan of these rules...simple, clean, room for flavor and excellent pacing. I will write more on my thoughts at a later date, but for now I thought I would post some pics from the (3) games we ran in roughly 4.5 hrs (including everyone learning the rules!).
Overall had a great time playing the game after nearly a year long build-up. Look forward to finishing up more units to fluff out the armies and work towards a MASSIVE game late in the year.
Wish everyone a safe and happy new year! Good gaming ahead!
