Dreadball Forgefathers

I took some time out of my Kings of War Dwarf Army to paint up some of the Forgefather models from the Dreadball Kickstarter set. I've painted one of each of the Forgefather models (left to right: Jack, Striker, Guard) and I have to say that they are awesomely sculpted models and were an absolute pleasure to paint.
Well, like my Kings of War Dwarf Army, these guys will probably never see the table-top, but I'm still really happy with how they turned out.

Kings of War and Multibasing

Multibasing really suits the Kings of War ruleset. With the Big Battles, Big Armies motto of Mantic Games, multibasing has a lot of advantages:
  • Easier movement of units on the table-top
  • The potential to minimise the number of models you have to paint
  • Less difficulty in ranking up your models
  • More appreciation for the models beyond the first rank of troops
  • The freedom to create fantastic dioramas for your units
  • Easier transportation of models

Here are some examples of multibased units that Google Images found me (most just happened to be for Undead armies):

I'll definitely be pursuing the multibasing option for my Kings of War Dwarf army, mainly to minimise the number of models I have to paint. I mentioned previously this would be primarily a modelling project, and although I won't be aiming for anything as fancy as the fantastic examples above, I'm hoping that I'll be able to create an army I can be proud of, while still being functional on the table-top.
