|The third in the much loved series|
Well it turned up yesterday. But I was too busy erm... unboxing it to actually put anything up on the blog. Sorry. It won't happen again. I promise... well until the next time it happens. As I'm sure most of you are aware, I've got a little bit of a soft spot for this series of games. They inexpensive, not overly fussy or complex and quite frankly straight up fun. They're a good way to waste an evening if you ask me, and if you have kids a pretty good way to get them into the hobby. So the much anticipated third box is very welcome. Although my friends and I already pretty much knew what to expect from it as we'd all had a sneaky peak...
|I'm really not sure about some of those names of playtesters... look a bit iffy!|
|Let's see what's in the box... it's not as packed as the previous offerings.|
|But that's not so bad as it £10 cheaper too. Here look at a Dwarf spru.|
|Now are these Zombies or Ghouls?|
|Nope those were definitely Zombies, these are the Ghouls! I think.|
|Don't like the Undead? How about some poncy elf scouts then?|
|A first for the DKH boxed sets, a metal figure. Sorry about the lighting.|
|The all important rulebook. Don't adjust your monitors it's still black & White|
|The solitary sheet of floor tiles and counters|
So I already know what to expect from this as I was playtesting it for about a couple of weeks or so. So wat can you expect? Well in broad strokes it's about turning the Dwarf Kings Hold series of games into a sort of skirmish game on a board. It mixes things up with new troop types for the already announced races. It also allows you to pit the various races against each other, with some army building. It's what most DKH fans have been asking for and so Jake has given it us. The review shouldn't be too long coming now I've got it in my hands on it. Just a quick note though, I'm actually very, very impressed with the metal dwarf berserker, it's honestly a quite nice sculpt. Especially as it's a single piece. Any who I'm off now to do something important... erm... and really interesting for you all to read... yes that's it. Peace out!
