What is this now? I must admit, I like the 1:1-ish scale wargames in 28mm. Hordes of the Things is nice and (relatively) simple, but it's not 1:1. So, when the Kings of War closed beta rules were released I was taken by them. Simple game, 1:1-ish. At least as 1:1-ish as warhammer anyway. So, here's my first regiment. It's a 10cm by 8cm block of troops, the same footprint as 20 figs on 20mm bases ranked up in rows of five. Since you don't need individually-based figures in Kings of War, and since I still wanted to field some of the figs as part of a HotT army, I made mine using three bases: two 60mmx40mm and one 40mm by 80mm. Here it is, diorama-ish, and I'm quite happy with it!
