Re: Totally Awesome!

I threatened to paint my sons WH40K orcs pink , with a Hello Kitty motif.

He quite liked the idea as he thought it might annoy GW. I just need to find the time.

In the meantime I have some Khurasan bears for Tomorrows War and we can now say that
they look great in pink.

So...horses next....

Re: Later Medieval Danish - Mixed levy with Xbows vs. Unmixe

Hi I have one of these, but am not what you might call a top tier player....actually more a crap tier player. I tend to never have enough time to paint an army, and playing...well that's a space time problem, particularly with commitment to a new business.... So that's me and here's my experience: I...

Looks like you want something more natural. I use little bits of some old Heather plant wood for natural and dead wood on my bases and models. Problem with this stuff is that its not very hard wearing.

So, to be fair, were the live action version. If you want to play a game that simulates military history you have to work with what you get. To be fair , most of our sources on the Persian army are from Greek properganda....well maybe a bit strong, but they are mostly greek and mostly not eye witne...

Will, you may want to ask yourself is he best used to support and upgrade a weaker BG in combat rather than an elite BG. That way you potentially have 2 strong BG's rather than a very strong BG and a weak BG. Are you paying us a visit at Stockport? Rob Hi Rob I will be there on Saturday....if evert...

Thanks very much for all the replys, I have not played elites and was under the impression that they didn't get any advantage for a general in combat. So just wanted to know where I would stand with them.

I like my pike in 12 if I can as it mitigates shooting against them to a certain extent.
However I'm not much of a player.

Ive got the same prob.... I'll try a clean load without 1.06.

It's taken me about 40 mins in all so far , not that much out of my life and if I can't get it to work i'll reload to v.1.12.

So thanks to all those who've put in much more than 40 mins to give me the option of this FREE update

Definitely multi ,part and separate spears, but must be able to make good and lasting bonds when glued or pinned. This allows for greater variety and a much more dynamic mini.
