First Game of KoW

This past Friday I got my first game in of Kings of War. I player the Dark Elves… I mean the Twilight Kin against the owner of Critical Hit Games and his army (which I have since forgotten what they were). The game would have gone a lot faster if I had any idea of what I was doing (and yes, I glanced at the rule book) but this was meant to be a teaching game. I can’t say that I played with any strategy, or any thought at all other than learning the game. It was relatively quick, fairly easy, and a decent substitute for Warhammer Fantasy. It’s a closer substitute than Age of Sigmar is in my opinion.

I enjoyed the game, so much so that I have already started gluing models to their movement trays for ease of transport and fielding.

I also got to use the Kharibdyss for the first time, although in this game it was just a Hydra that didn’t last all that long. And since I used the Kharibdyss, I decided that maybe I should think about painting him.

I would recommend people looking for a Fantasy alternative to give KoW a try. It’s not a perfect replacement, but if you are not a fan of AoS, KoW isn’t bad at all. Sorry for the short post for today.

This is Shorereaper, signing off.
