Yes! Totally awesome.

Can't see her finding much hard cover though ;)

My thinking is...

Put a non mounted version on a base for purposes of measuring line of sight to sand from... use that one for looking cool

Well I'm a fan of the magic cylinder anyway, so use what you like and you can fudge cover as required.

Certainly everyone at the club - even Buckley - will be playing for fun over super competitiveness.

Gah. This is tricky!

Does quality override quantity when making the warband

Current experience is no. Life is so fragile, your superstar knight is just as vulnerable to bobs crack critical hit crossbow squad as a thug. So have some quality, but have enough troops to run around and catch the treasure

Key thing IMO is to make sure you have at least three guys/gals you can send straight after treasure and they need to just focus on that while the rest of you squad protect them and/or try to grab another piece.

We've been playing with the peter-pig timer suggested by Paul and (starting from 19) if gives a decent number of turns but also you can't hang about with the treasure as one or two big drops in time can leave you dragging treasure to the edge as time runs out.

With 3 games in the last few days the progress on the warband has been slowed, but both kids now have their own projects! :)

I did managed to finish off a couple of the treasure tokens:

And my Imp arrived in the post, loving this guy but wish he'd turn up more often in the city:

Some really nice touches playing vs an illusionist and an enchanter so far. The illusionist has already been teleporting around to steal treasure and using wizard eye with push to drive others back, not a single offensive damage spell in her list but she hides in cover supporting via the eye.

I also had my frozen battle mat (from these guys: http://www.deepcutstudio.com/products) arrive that I found on ebay, it's great but at 6x4 it's twice the size I needed. So I chopped it in half which is plenty big enough for the 3x3 games we've been playing so far and even a 4 player game would have lots of space on a 3x4.

Anyway, it means I have a spare 3x4 frozen surface battle mat if anyone would like one before it heads off to ebay. £15 and of course you're welcome to check it out before parting with any cash.

Had an intro game at Jack's last night, 4 player on a 3x4 table and lots of space still, lots of fun but I can't help but feel it needs more wandering monsters!

Still, with a dozen skellies on the table to start with an more arriving each turn there was at least a few around until late on.
