I'm curious to see what impact Vanguard will have on KoW rules and gameplay.

That's a familiar mini!

At the height of WHFB 6th edition, I think I bought the starter set (empire + orks) from various online auctions at least 8 times. Sold/gave away the orcs, but kept the empire bits. The Spearmen are painted mostly by now (they make great polearm troops when converted to halberds. See http://kingsofwarvince.business.blog/2018/12/06/my-2nd-halberdier-horde/), but I do own at least a hundred handgunners which still have to be painted......

On your other comment: I must confess I haven't taken enough time to look into Vanguard. I hear good things about it, but choose to keep focussed on KoW. (My gaming group has many new players who are building their KoW armies, so another game will probably distract them) That said, I would love to try out the game.

Shooting in Kings of War is very hard to balance. (it's either too powerful leading to gunlines or not powerful enough) Maybe other mechanics can increase it's tactical uses without increasing its raw killing power. Good to know the gaming world keeps on improving.
