One of the great aspects of the hobby (and sadly the one I have neglected for a long time again) is modelling. And one of the aspects of modelling of your army is creating nice bases for your warriors and units. I wanted to create something more than just drybrushed sand and static grass and was looking for the idea to address that.
Kings of War offers a unique option here. Since your units have fixed dimensions it is possible to create small dioramas. The term used by KoW players in that case is "multi-basing".
