Hi you all
yesterday i won my first match on this game. It was my fourth one, and my opponent was playing his first on KoW (but he came from a long year play at WHFB and other skirmishes)

This is my 1500 pts army (except for naiads that really wasn't here)

(front row, left to right: earth elemental horde, gladewalker druid, salamander prime regiment, salamander prime veteran, beast of nature (spitting one), naiad heartpiercer regiment)
(rear row, left to right: scorchwing horde, hydra, beast of nature flying, naiad wyrmrider horde)


match was very intense, my Force of Nature against Sylvan Kin; scenario was Fool's Gold, i won at the 7th turn, but at the end of 6th my opponent controlled the majority of the counter so it was very dramatic until the end

My consideration of the game so far is that i like it
the game is fast, and several cool idea is made to make it quick paced: rolling for damage and defense in a single roll remove one roll from the equation, the fact you can't retaliate in your opponent turn let the turn flow and when you got the rythm is very quick. The fact that game stats and the movement tray dimensions are the only thing you really need to play is a good incentive for lazy player to try the game: you just need cardboard rectangle and a list and you can play!
(of course we all are gamer so we *whant* to play with full painted army, but that's something you can advertise to a lazy player to make him interested and then BAM next game you play he will have a full painted army )
Last but not least, the fact there are no "true line of sight" but everyting can be measured with a string reduce the "hey i see your hand holding the weapon from between the window so i can clearly shot your unit" "no no you see only the weapon, so does'nt count" continuos debate... :-|

For me, most important is i'm in painting and modeling frenzy; it means i'm incentivated to paint and build something really different from same coloured space marines, and basing them, studying colour scheme, and what kind of base i could use for those.
This is driving me forward at the moment

Anything that motivates a person positively is good. Glad your enjoying KoW.

I'm glad that you're having fun. and the army looks great! I love the autumny, gloomy feel that it seems to have

realism is a lie

Was not really intentional; i had to think a way to do many bases with very similar concept in way qucik enough to not spend on that more time than on the miniatures
so after a little search on internet i found a good idea:
- Astrogranite (i had a pot to try from Conquest)
- Cygor Brown on top of it to make earth-like colour
- Rakhart Flesh drybrush (also from Conquest)
- Agrax Earthshade to smooth them (also i have one of them from Conquest. Plus a couple more in my backup paint drawers )

and then for the herbal thing:
- green tea really cheap i bought on supermarket (1.59€ and i filled up a small can it will probably last me forever)
- red autumn leaves from Green Stuff World. I love those leaves, they stand up and make every base i'm creating very gorgeous!!

some base shows little difference: earth elemental got big stir foam crystal, naiad wyrmrider got a dry river bed, etc. and fire elemental (not shown, still working on) will got probably a molten lava base

in the end, the autumn aspect is going down very good! and that also give them more characther! (i guess)
and on the plus side: there are a good smell of green tea around the table while we are playing

Yeah :-D
got a lot of spare bits from Hydra, included some whiping and stabbing elfs i would probably recycle in something else... still deciding...

Yeah
i got to say, i need to thank also Contrast Paints from GW.
Painting a full horde in 4-5 days left me enough time to play with bases and try something else, like clear silicone-based fire elemental, creating a beast from scrap and like
