Hunter Cadre (for me the best minis from the new catalogue) and Longbowmen. Both for Hundred Kingdoms army.

Agreed, this preview version is much better than a regular one.

What is the situation on the sixth faction? I hope it's the Roman/Byzantine ghosts.

The bases look so tiny and out of place under them!

Yeah, they would look better on the bigger bases but that is the needed compromise to make the bases fit the stands.

I can't really complain about the small bases. Parabellum's model quality is increasing with each new release.

Nords have the potential to be amazing when completed. I do hope one day they re-do the Raiders, but not so worried about that.

I have no problem with the bases. If you want to expand the bases, you can do so with cork.

Another part in my ongoing saga of ''how to improve my Jotnar's look to finally be happy with it'' This time I have decided to glue a part of Stalkers' standard to its side, and also removed a tree from his right hand (I have yet to decide what will be there).

Might be too much effort to re-arrange the fingers to look right, but how about mini from one of your most reviled rival's army? Smash your opponent's Force Grown Drones with one of their own FGDs, for example!

It had crossed my mind but I want to use this Jotnar in more than 1 game (a giant is a giant after all), and having the model from the Conquest range in its hand would look weird size wise.

Warband 100K

Question from an absolute amateur who has done little more than skim the rules enough to play 1 game of First Blood...

for LAoK, is there any incentive or disincentive to running a lot of heroes? Heroes only seem to cost about as much as a stand, so I could see an army with like, 6 imperial officers and mages and noble lords each leading 1-2 regiments in their warbands (assuming you were going to run that amount of units anyways).

Does this way of building a list make any sense? Is it the "style" of a certain faction? 100k looks like they may want to run this way but Dweghom have a limited enough pool of characters that maybe they don't like this?

Mostly idle curiosity rather than any list in mind.

Right now there is no meta "right way" of doing it. You will get contradictory answers every time.

The 100k right now are very weak and need to be running lots of heroes to have any chance, but they (PB) have stated they are going to be toning down the hero hammer.

Huh, I guess I didn't think of it as hero hammer. Hero hammer to me is having a few super powerful guys dosh up the battlefield. I don't get the impression that many heroes besides Blooded for the Nords are very powerful.

At least it doesn't sound like I'd be crippling myself if I took a bunch of say, Tempered Sorcerers in Dweghom.

Blooded and Hold Raegh and Noble Blender Lord is all about the hero hammer.

About running many heroes, it depends but I believe it is rare to see huge spam (1 hero per 500 points is somewhat of a reference).
Incentive: you can go full herohammer with blenderlords (nords, dweghhom, 100k) and magic spam (dweghom and 100k especially). However, it is not very fun. Ironically, Spires are probably the most character dependant faction and don't really fit this category.
Disincentive: Heroes can be very killy but not indistructible (to the levels of herohammer) as they depend on the unit they are in. Also, adding many heroes can heavily condition your army list (particularly 100k spellcasters).
Edit: Another not so great point is that an overpowered character requires a big investment. Usually 150-200 points. It's a single stand that dies along the regiment for the price of a whole regiment.

Although this is more for Last Argument of Kings. For First Blood, I think all this is exponentially amplified due to characters being their own unit and warbands only being 2 units max. First Blood is waaay more herohammery.

I think that the word means different things to different people.

For me, every game vs Nords is taking on dual Blooded heroes and each Blooded reliably removes 3-4 stands of my 100 kingdoms per clash. Thats 3-4 STANDS.

Thats about as hero hammer as it gets to me.

Good to know!

Good, but not happy, to know. :(

This I agree with.

Shucks. Would rather play a fun list.

Thats going to depend on your playgroup unfortunately. But PB did state they wanted to lessen the Hero-Hammer aspect a bit, just dont know what that looks like at the moment.
