Rulebook has arrived, black and white throughout and the font for fluff is a bit fancy after a long day but i'll give it a read, having read the alpha and beta rules though I expect it's not too different.

*blows dust off of topic and hacks at cobwebs with a feather duster*

So Rulebook v1.5 is on its way to me along with a couple of add on units for my Britanan and Orcnar forces. The assembled Orcnar and Britanans are sat on the painting table awaiting a lick of paint (it's a nice break from painting humans, I find rotating painting projects is a good way to keep it fresh and not a chore (have i ever said how I loathe painting miniatures. I'd much rather be gaming)).
I should be able to field 200 point forces for both factions once they are done.

On a happier note, the 2nd edition rulebook is considered to be a great deal better than the first. Colour and fonts that are legible, so a good thing. The rules are nice and simple. Some interesting concepts which work well. Anyone interested in this game should talk to me. I'm happy to play people. Can even lend them an army to use :)

First unmann done.

The photos aren't great. Sorry about that. I've not decided on how I'm going to base them yet. The thinking behind the scheme is that each type of orcnar will have a different colour earthy flesh tone but the scales on each will be the same grey to tie them all together. Also kinds of fits fluff wise as they are all created from the same dmoder.

Opinions happily accepted.

So that's the first unit completed. I've also made a start on the Eotan Rifan. The flesh just needs a wash to tie it together a bit more..

As always, happy for opinions :)

:text-bump:

Finally (4 years since the original post, pretty damn impressive, even by my standards!) I'll get a game in down the club tonight against Kyle. I'll post first(ish) impressions and some pictures tonight. Looking forward to trying this, the mechanic is cool. I'll have both forces finished by March. Here is some photography (shoddy) of what I've gotten done so far this week. This unit is called the Docga, a hard hitting cavalry type..
