Hiya folks!

Well, I am ticketted up for the big ass tourney in February, despite never having played KOW or owning any models yet.

But, I am a meticulous planner, and have sorted it out so I will have ample time to paint my entire forthcoming KS army ($225 worth of Goblins) ready, I want it to look good though, I'm a professional.

With that in mind, I am going to buy some sweet bases for them all, and I want them all here sprayed ready to go for when the army arrives, as I know painting 200 models to a good standard is going to take me a lot of time. Anyway, I cant pre-order them, because I have no idea of the size to get! I cant get a solid answer of the online store at mantic, and I don't actually know the rules yet either!

So, some questions, I am hoping someone can answer for me.

1. As you don't remove models, can you stick say, 5 guys on one base? And purchase bigger bases?

2. On an individual basis, are they mounted on 20mm or 25mm square bases?

We are arming Syrian rebels who support ISIS, who is fighting Iran, who is fighting Iraq who we also support against ISIS, while fighting Kurds who we support while they are fighting Syrian rebels.

1, Mantic don't make multi bases at the moment, but some folks are using http://www.warbases.co.uk/#/kings-of-war-style/4566288677

2, I'm pretty sure that goblins push into the square mantic 20mm bases, Some guys are having dioramic bases made
movement trays are the way I'm going.

far too many points and still painting...

Those are nifty. I may have to pick up a pile when my Orcs finally arrive.

Finally finished my LoER contest entry. With a couple of bonus Vanguard models as well..




Painting total as of 6/16/2019: 51 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 28 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit.

regarding warbases, I posted pics of the order i received on the KoW forum -

http://forum.manticblog.com/showthread.php?1092-Kings-of-War-Raising-the-dead/page8

I ordered a bunch of 100x40's for the normal sized troops (undead, goblins) and 125x50's for orcs, with random hole spacing since i thought undead, goblings, orcs wouldn't be all nice and regimented.
