Time for another painting update! I have been busy working away on the Lanisters and have the starter set finished now so figured it was time for another post. Sadly no Wednesday gaming this week, and I am in Halifax next week, and Fall-In the week after, so a bit of a hiatus on that front.
First up a second unit of Guardsmen, once again with their captain. But this time I painted the alternate kickstarter only version to change things up a bit. He looks pretty cool and I like the pose, but is a bit lazy on the details. Basically describes the game of thrones models if we are honest, but it works great on the table and is easy to paint so I am not intending to complain, I am a fan overall.
The second non-combat unit you get is Cersei. Also a nice model, but particularity the detail in the face is a bit soft. But for this kind of plastic single piece models pretty good. She plays the influence game and lowers enemy units morale which is fun.
So that all makes up the starter set forces. 2 units of Lanister Guards, the Mountains Men, some Halberd guys, plus the combat and non-combat characters. (Jamie, The Mountain, Tyrion, Assault Veteran, 2x Captains, and Cersei).
Also got do the first guy from the heroes set, he is the High Sparrow. He is a non-combat unit that can also be a general which is interesting. Unlike most of the Lanister guys he focuses on helping your units. Hopefully they will add some units to fit in his cult that would be fun.
There are a bunch more heroes of course, and I have a unit of Knights of Casterly Rock to do as well. So good progress but still a few more weeks work to go. Most likely I will add some stuff at Fall-In if anyone is carrying it. As the game is fun to play and fun to paint. Real question is if it will be more Lanisters, or a new army!

Bought: 246 (picked up the Goblin Shade Spire set Zarbags Gitz, going to paint a few of those for Christmas)
As usual be sure to let me know what you think of all this mess.
ALso worth noting the Saga book of missions is about to come out, and Warlord is releasing a new small scale naval game. Both things I am very excited about. So expect to see some of that as well!
