Fantasy: KOW Batrep
Good game, Andy. Despite the crushing defeat I did have fun. The rules aren't bad and far less arbitrary than WHFB. I recognise them as a good set with an eye to quick balanced tournament set. Combos are inherently limited by the list design. Only one magic item per unit for example and overall the set of units and stats is in a focused band with no 'design by exception' to muddy things up. So if you want to win your list.
Also see how I got nearly all my Fantasy Humans on the table? Given the collection is a total 'Kitchen Sink', that's impressive as the game did not bog down. Sure I have more I can add but this game is definitely the best I've tries for fielding lots of our toys at once.
Next up this weekend. More Kings of War vs Jason. Longer term: I've been reading Warthrone and taking notes. I like it even more than I initially did. There are key differences to how I did things in terms of the Sequence of actions (ie Warthrone is more like War of the Ring, Kings of War and WHFB) but there are a lot of cool additions over the other games in other areas. Can't wait to try it, even if the list selection is currently a little limited in English Language.
Thanks for reading.
