I can't find my copy of Savage North... :(
Sorry. I ordered one for me and one for my friend as an early Christmas gift, which is really rotten on my part. Talk about ulterior motives....

Heh, we've all done it, I got two copies too.
Talking of Savage North, I was looking through and seeing what eh special abilities do, but couldn't find Vampire (as for some of the gnolls). Do I need the earlier rulebook for this?

I haven't got my copies yet, but ALL the special abilities from Warlord and Savage North are supposed to be in Savage North. Right now, as a teaser, I'm constructing forces for Icingstead on the reapergames armybuilder. After you build the army, when you output it, all the SAs for your force are put on paper. Really helpful tool for playing the game, or just daydreaming.

Thanks for that
Any C&C on my suggested small force?

And now the books have arrived, I'm ready to go
I notice that most of the advice is geared towards 1000 pt warbands. To begin with I guess I will be aiming for something smaller, around 500pts. This means its easier to get the warband ready, and two shorter games will give more learning experiences than one longer one (that's the theory...)
So, any suggestions for smaller warbands?
My initial idea was
Hrodash, 2 black orc hunters, black orc marauder, 1 goblin sticker, 2 goblin stingers, 2 goblin swarmers and Gnax = 243
Boneflayer, 2 gnoll raiders, gnoll reaver, Venomspite = 208
3 hyenas = 51
No real thoughts to tactics with this lot, just what I have to hand and painted (Bones with a few D&D minis)
This is a perfect starting point. Play a few games and learn the rules and the SAs. That's the way to ease in. After you get the hang of it, and start adding different troops and combos, you learn the synergies, and then it gets deeper. If you have a blast, with your bones and some D&D minis, you may end up building more forces. It's a slippery slope.

A slippery slope indeed. I spent too long yesterday playing with the army builder and rooting through old boxes of minis. Guess I'm hooked
Now if only I didn't have so much stuff to paint....

::D:Thanks for al the replies and help. This is a very friendly forum indeed.
I hope to get a few games in before Christmas, that should give me a better idea where to go with things.
Presumably there is no problem collecting models and using them for either Reven or Kargir, depending on the style of game? The proxy rule seem to suggest this (as long as it is clear to my opponent).
