Hordes of the Things
I've been reading other peoples plays of this game and looking at other peoples stands and units, especially on Tim's blog.. ( http://saskminigamer.blogspot.com/ ) .. and I am starting to gear up for my own. Being a lizardman kind of lover I will be building a generic reptilian army, but with all due respect to WRG I don't like aspects of their generic. The biggest part that of the list I don't like is all the hordes, I don't feel that reptile armies would have a bunch of hordes, maybe a few in the form of masses of lizards and serpents swarming the enemy but the regular warriors just don't seem to be hordes to me. I think I'll be going with war bands over hordes. I don't think I'll be building this stuff up very quickly but you never know, I am unpredictable. I've got the pieces I need for my first war band, three first edition plastic saurus warriors. One of them has been modified with a new weapon arm from a current set so one will have spears and two will have hand weapons. I don't know if I'll use the basing standards in the rules, I'll use the 60mm frontage but I just don't know if GW figures will fit comfortably on the depths, we'll see.
