So I’ve been meaning to get into kings of war for a while, and the new war in the hold box gives me two armies that I like the look at – the Ratkin and the Goblins.

 

First Steps

So, armed with the box, I have to make a choice where to start – and I’ve decided to start with the goblins first – for two reasons – the first  is more Ratkin models are incoming, and I want to give Mantic time to fill holes in their lines.

The second reason is I have the contents of the WHFB fourth edition box set in my loft, bought new and painted by 11 year old me.

Now 11 year old me is about to get a bit of stick, but believe me, he deserve it.

As you can see, 11YOM did a terrible job of painting these guys they are not undercoated and no attempt has been made to get behind the shields. This is shocking!As you can see, 11YOM did a terrible job of painting these guys they are not undercoated and no attempt has been made to get behind the shields. This is shocking!

So, what is the plan?

Well I have 32 of these guys, 32 night goblins then 6 of each from the Warhammer quest box. some have broken bows and spears. I also have 40 goblins from the KOW box.  I plan to go for around minimum model count. my regiment plan then becomes

1 Wiz

1 Regiment Trolls

2 Regiments of 15 Sharpsticks

2 Regiments of  15 Spitters

2 Regiments of  15 rabble

2 Troops of 8-10 rabble

The idea is this the regiments can be made into hordes, and the two troops can be a troop, a regiment or turn the rabble into a legion of my worst troops!

I plan on buying some Oathmark goblins to make Lugitz, (2 Regiments) and some Fleabag riders, as I’m not 100% sold on the mawbeasts. they also give me a mounted leader/flaggit

I have these guys who shall make a troop of Mawbeasts, and may well use the pups off the globlin sprue to make another troop.I have these guys who shall make a troop of Mawbeasts, and may well use the pups off the globlin sprue to make another troop.

Finally I picked up this fine and.... anatomically correct gentleman. He has been given a rear loincloth to preserve is modesty - and as armies tend to face away from you, prevents me from having to spend a battle looking at his meat and two veg. hes going to be a great centerpeace however!Finally I picked up this fine and.... anatomically correct gentleman.

So, that’s the basic plan, next up will be assembly, stripping of 11YOM’s “paint job” and the construction of some nice swamp bases for everyone to go on.

This may take a while……
