Liking the Horde!

Recommended Posts

I'm liking the Gibbering Hordes more and more with each reveal. I've always wanted to try playing a horde army, but have always been put off by the sheer number of models I'd have to paint. But with the GH's Endless Numbers ability, I don't need more models, I just reuse the dead ones.

Ushering fourth eliminated units, rather than spawning new ones, is a thankfully wise choice from the Wyrd design team.

You are spot-on in your sentiment I feel.  We will be painting more models than some other factions, but there is always an end in sight

verses the summoning approach in other systems.

We might not even be painting to much more then other armys depending on your unit preference. Bringing back your own dead add a nice endless swarm feel to an elite Gibbering Horde..horde.

Not even just summoning armies, when you've got the likes of Tyranids where you take multiple Gaunt squads, any single squad numbering as many models as a 1 commander list for TOS

This, oh so much. It's why I switched over to skirmish games Malifaux and Infiinty (and possibly TOS, I have yet to convince the wife!) . I just don't have time to paint boxes and boxes and boxes of guys.

Same here, although painting wasn't my worry as much as assembly, which thankfully Wyrd has made a non-issue for TOS
