Kings Of War Escalation Update month 1

Over the month of October we have seen some wonderful progress from members of the Kings of War Escalation league and although the deadline isn’t up I thought it was time to share with you some of the images we have seen through social media and our discord server.

Don’t worry if you haven’t shared any images yourself yet you still have a couple more days to secure the points against your own pledge. We will request the final pictures of the month 1 pledges on the last day of October. These pictures will be used to tally up what points you have gained from meeting your pledge.

I am looking forward to seeing more work in progress photos and photos from the armies on the field as this month comes to a close and next month starts.

Note about Month 2 Pledges

Before I share the photos I wanted to quickly discuss the upcoming month 2 pledges. There has been some confusion with regards to the value of force you need for month 2. The value of the force you need to host is 750 pts. Keep in mind you are allowed to deviate from this value by plus or minus 40pts. This means your list should be between 710-790 pts. The increase of 250 points per month was decided to make joining the league as accessible as possible.

We will be requesting your pledges as November begins. Once asked for you will need to make your November pledge in the same format as last month. For example David M’s second pledge is below;

This month I pledge to build/paint
A regiment of Palace Guard – 160pts
A Bolt Thrower – 90pts
Total Points taken – 250 pts
points brought forward – 5 pts
Points Carried forward – 5 pts

Kings of War Escalation league Month 1 Pledges

With the start of October we see the commencement of the Kings of war Escalation league. As such we can now announce the bonus challenge point and the scenario.

We currently have 8 army pledges in for the escalation league, these can be seen at the bottom of this post. If you haven’t provided your pledge for this month yet, don’t worry you are welcome to join at any point within the month. Simply let us know your pledge either here, on our Facebook group or through our discord server.

We look forward to seeing your progress to meet your

Bonus Challenge – Freehand

You can choose to paint an epic work of art on one of your models, be it the Mona Lisa on a cloak or landscape on a shield, or if like me you have shaky hands you could choose to paint some lines trimming a tunic or perhaps some dodgy looking checks around the trim of a shield. If there’s no transfers or trickery and you did it with a brush its all good, have that additional hobby point!

The Scenario – Kill!

Your scouting force spotted this isolated inn and has decided to ransack a building for the supplies it contains, be it food and drink, potential slaves or recruits. However, they encounter the opponents scouting force who has the same idea.

The initial 500 point “skirmish” game will be played on a 3 foot wide x 4 foot deep table, with a 14 inch deep deployment area, 6 inches from each table edge. This is so the forces can get to grips earlier, as befitting a small game. There should be a small building on the centre line of the game area no larger than 7 inches square. This is impassable terrain and is height level 4 and is an isolated coaching inn.
