The Kingdom Death Phoenix, painted as my interpretation of the Golden Eyed King of 1,000 years (which is one of the coolest boss titles I've ever seen). I think he's one of the most ambitious models I've painted, and I've one word for you: Texture.

|I always enjoy a little freehand, and again based the various face paint on traditional variations. The shaved heads are relatively simple but I think add a lot of flavor.|

|There'll be quite a few times where you end up feeling kinda' like this. Let's call this Figure 1 for ease of reference.|
Within two sessions, Kingdom Death established itself as one of my group's favorite games. Since we've gotten it, we've played it at least ten times as often as all other games combined. It's spent large periods sitting on the dining room table half-unpacked, because we plan to play it again in a day or two. The box has gotten dust in it, not from disuse, but from the lid never being on.
Normally, we slowly get in to games, playing two or three sessions, feeling it out, and then it either enters the regular loose rotation or is dumped because it's not our taste, etc.
And while I'm obviously heavily involved in the hobby, I've dropped pretty games with lackluster rules before (sometimes quickly), so this isn't just about it being extremely pretty, though it is.
As always, I try to keep things in perspective, but it's hard to hide my love of this game.

|A King's Man fight. Don't worry, it's just staged.|

I've now been playing Dominion for a little over 3 years and have 4 of the expansions and one promo card (and of course the core).
I still very much enjoy Dominion, but have found that it's not nearly as tight as I first felt it was.
The following review builds on my review of the core Dominion set, and assumes having read it, and/or familiarity with the core game.
