Topping my group in the KOW club comp stage meant I had qualified for the Quarter Finals. Unlike previous competitions the opponent wasn’t fixed based on your position within the group but was a random draw. My opponent ended up being Alex. I always enjoy playing Alex, neither of us takes our games too seriously… Read More Kings of War – Herd vs Brotherhood of Men – SELWG comp – Quarter Final – 13/10/19
My third and final group game was against Neil and his Empire of Dust (Tomb Kings) army. I was very much looking forward to this game as I’d not only not played Neil before also never played the Empire of Dust either. As an extra bonus, I’d seen his Tomb Kings army several years ago… Read More Kings of War – Herd vs Empire of Dust – SELWG comp game 3
My second game of the competition was against my old adversary Luke, fielding his beautiful old school ‘not’ Warriors of Chaos. As normal we weren’t taking our game particularly seriously and spent a great amount of time chatting. So much so that it is the first time I’ve ever failed to finish a game of… Read More Kings of War – Herd vs Varangur – SELWG 2019 comp game 2
As I mentioned in a previous post, I haven’t played KOW in a good few years so I thought it was about time that I gave it another go and as usual that meant in the club competition. My opponent for my first game was Cormac and his undead. By a fortuitous stroke of luck,… Read More Kings of War – Herd vs Undead – SELWG 2019 comp game 1
Caution: This post is one of my wordy affairs delving into my KOW list selection and the club comp. You have been warned…. Still here? Seriously, did you not read the warning? Fine, here we go then: After initially trying it out a few years back and having not played it since the club 2017… Read More Kings of War (KOW) – SELWG 2019 Competition and list breakdown.
As normal, now the games are completed i’ll take a look at the list and try and give an evaluation of how I think each element performed and what (if anything) I would change for future games. I’ll recap my list and then comment. Herd of Khazbar the Reborn Khazbar (Shaman) – Heal + Myrddin’s… Read More Evaluation of the Herd of Khazbar the Reborn (KOW)
My final game of the group stage was vs Alex Mountain and his Elves. I’ve faced Alex a couple of times before at Warhammer and he can be a canny opponent. He was particularly good at using Chaff in that system, so I was expecting this to carry over to this one. Alex’s Elf list… Read More KOW – Herd of Khazbar vs Alex’s Elves – SELWG Competition game
It’s been bugging me that I had one element of my Kings of War competition army that wasn’t painted and so I finally knuckled down and ‘finished’ off the 2 troops of Beastpacks. Lacking inspiration and to ensure continuity with the rest of the army, I followed the same procedure as the wolves in the… Read More Hobby update – Beastpacks/Chaos Hounds and next up.
The third of my competition games is perhaps the one I was most looking forward to. This is because it is against the only member of the group that i’ve never played before. It also happens that Tony is the club President so i had to ensure my best behaviour 😉. Tony was also the… Read More KOW – Herd of Khazbar vs Tony’s Herd – SELWG Competition game
Curtesy of another Mierce Miniatures purchase (the wolf front and centre) I was able to finally finish my Stampede for my Kings of War herd army (although I realised I need to finish the eyes as soon as the photo was uploaded). Another box ticked in the road to army completion!
