Hello folks, been lurking for a while and finally taken the plunge thanks quibble running rampant in my head.
Without too much negativity, I’ve found myself increasingly dissatisfied with my current TTG Hobby of the past 4 years; and after picking up a Kings of War army and the 3rd edition rulebook last December, I find the Mantic Company and Community to be a friendlier and more laidback environment to be enjoyed.
This now begs the question: what to do with the ‘Sizeable’ Nighthaunt army I currently own. Sure, I could go through the trouble of selling them off, but I quite like the overall aesthetic and think I could work them into my future KoW project.
I’m planning on collecting Nightstalkers, as mentioned I have the army box, and I feel the 2 can mesh together with a unified paint scheme.
Although I understand proxies are usually subjective, I would be grateful if more seasoned KoW hobbyists could maybe provide some advice on the comparison I created below?
Scarecrows - Chainrasp Horde (nice’n’simple)
Reapers - Dreadscythe Harridans/Grimghast Reapers
Phantoms - Glaivewraith Stalkers
Butchers - Bladegheist Revenants
Fiends - Spirit Hosts
Horror Riftweavers - Banshee/Myrmourn Banshee
Basic list for most of the infantry. One of the things I’m planning to do is shamelessly mix the official Mantic Nightalkers in with the Nighthaunt proxies in a single unit. I’m going for multibasing, and most of the Nighthaunt models are not suitable to be removed from their bases, but I can trim the edges off the base and stick that directly to the MDF footprint. For example, I can fit 12 Chainrasp into the 100mmx 80mm footprint for a Scarecrow Regiment. So, I could maybe use a mix of say, 7 Chainrasp and 7-9 Scarecrows on the same base instead?
Thank you for taking the time to read quite a rambling post.
