Hi all
thought I would stop by and say hello. I have recently just discover Darklands and backed my first Mierce Kickstarter (savage hordes 2).

Ive been gaming on and off for about 20 years and at the minute I mainly play Warmahordes, Infinity,RPGS and board games.

really looking forward to getting into this game

Have you managed to play any games yet? The couple of Warmachine players who have picked it up in or area (Nottingham/Mansfield) do seem to have made the switch quite well. I think some of the principles translate well!

What did you go for in the Kickstarter?

Hi and thanks for the reply

No games yet, I only discovered the game during this kickstarter, but I intend to get proxying as soon as I can. A friend already has a large collection and I think we are going to start playing pretty soon.

I have gone for Byzantii/Infernii, my thoughts being that I love the aesthetic of Romans, and im assuming as they are more disciplined that they may be a bit more forgiving to learn with? (or maybe its the lapsed catholic in me that has an affinity for an army that isnt a fan of jeebuz)

I pledged for 2 metal hosts and got the 2 different demilegionaires hosts

is there a list anywhere of recommended beginner lists? Going for Byzantii/Infernii and would love it if there was a recommended 499g list

As far as I can tell the easiest way is to take one of the hosts you've gone for and write it up - if I recall correctly they are designed to be around 499g, but you'll want to be careful about ubiquities.
