The army really looks great, all painted up and on a proper battlefield with terrain etc.

Looks like it played pretty well too.

Having one model on an oval base and the rest on squares does slightly bother me, but it's nit-picky. Have you considered making a square base with a insert to place him in? It generally don't matter much for individual characters but it could cause a little trouble in rare circumstances.

Thanks

I am very happy with how the army played, speaks highly of KoW rules and balance that I can make a fluffy list and it can actually compete well.

Personally, I vastly prefer the oval base to a rectangular one for individuals. I brought a rectangular base to the tourney so I could place it down if there were any issues, but it never was an issue.

Game four vs Ogres is now also written up: https://mandollies.com/2017/04/08/hu...res-eliminate/

For your information, it used to be in KoW 1st edition that individual could be put on round base (you can still see many pictures of the offical Morgoth the Faceless model on a round base for exemple) because individual made facing not matter for them.

However it happened that there were some rare situations where it became a problem, especially when the charger had no facing restriction, so could charge the individual from any angle he could reach, resulting in some situations not in line with the usual charge restrictions ("what do you mean your flier can jump over my unit and charge my army standard hidden behing it from an angle that not only make the charge possible but also allow them to both kill the hero and overrung the unit ?!")

There are also a few situations where the facing matter, for exemple individual with ensnare or phalanx won't benefit from it if charged from a flank (can happen in some situations)

In your case the problem is lessened due to the fact that you use an oval cavalry base, and not a round one, so flanks can still be determined more or less most of the time, but it still opens the potential for confusion in some extreme cases.

Worth it my opinion for the improved looks
If in doubt, I would let my opponent decide.

I have posted up my experiences from the tourney for those interested in some tactical musing on my LoR list: https://mandollies.com/2017/04/17/hunt-for-the-artifact-post-tourney-tactical-ponderings/

New battle report, a bit of a long one this time, got inspired to add some fluff. https://mandollies.com/2017/04/22/kow-battle-report-kislev-vs-ostland-league-vs-league-2k-secure/

It is 2k League of Rhordia VS League of Rhordia, Ostland vs Kislev in Secure.
