Duelling Gamers 5 "The Duel of Kings"


Well I've done it again. I have decided to enter Terrain for Hippos http://terrainforhippos.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/duelling-paintbrushes-5-duel-of-kings.html

duelling paintbrushes "opportunity". Well it is a sort of competition for bragging rights only but to me it is an opportunity to get some targeted painting done in a short time.

Unfortunately due to the demise of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and the kindling of new interests in Kings Of War by Mantic (which I have played and enjoyed a lot) there has been a little rejig of the premise of the competition. To cut to the chase, competitors have to paint a horde in Kings of War and the accompanying regiments and units and characters and monsters and well you get it.....

Now what to do? I have enough Undead already from last years attempt.

and there are so many models sitting unloved in the shed. Shall it be dwarves as a mix of mantic and GW minis or shall I do the Kingdom of Men and take my long held wish of a cross-over army of Republican Romans that will look like a slightly more archaic cousin to Mantic's Basileans? I have the Agema Miniatures Romans already and well would have to buy some more dwarves to make a decent attempt on the duel. Hmmm decisions decisions.

No pics this time as I contemplate reality.

Welcome once more to the challenge! Let us embrace folly as one!

Hmm I do have to admit that this time around folly might be the issue and though I plan on putting an effort in timing may not be to my advantage. Next term at work might be bigger than I hoped but what is not more enjoyable than the taste of paint on the brush and the look of my dodgy paint jobs photographed up close and personal.
