1754 Conquest

Posted on April 29th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Last week, I received my copy of 1754 by Academy Games. Basically the FIW at one level of detail greater than Risk. It uses the same card-driven play and random turn sequence as 1775 and 1812. Bruce popped over Monday and we had a quick run throug…

I’ve been thinking about ideas for a simple solo pre-dreadnought naval campaign, based on a counter-factual clash between the colonial powers in the South and East China Seas. This would be very much along the lines of the campaign approach from Victor…

Figurkowy Karnawał Blogowy. Edycja #32: Wybrany i odrzucony.

Posted on April 28th, 2017 under . Posted by

Witam szanowne państwo-draństwo w trzydziestej drugiej odsłonie Figurkowego Karnawału Blogowego

Gdyby ktoś z czytających DansE MacabrE jeszcze nie wiedział, FKB to inicjatywa którą w polskiej wargamingowej blogosferze rozpoczął Inkub prowadzący bloga Wojna w miniaturze.


Do tej pory, co można wywnioskować po tytule posta, odbyło się trzydzieści jeden edycji, których podsumowania znajdziecie TUTAJ


Gospodarzem trzydziestej drugiej edycji jest Gervaz, którzy na łamach bloga bitewniakowe pogranicza opublikowali wprowadzenie zawierające temat na kwiecień, czyli Wybrany i odrzucony.


To tyle tytułem wstępu, zapraszam do lektury.

***

Legion

Widoczne na zdjęciach powyżej figurki to tylko część modeli czekających w witrynach na malowanie. Mniej więcej drugie tyle znajduje się jeszcze w ramkach i pudełkach czekając cierpliwie na sklejenie.

W zdecydowanej większości są to modele przeznaczone do Warheim FS, które w miarę możliwości sukcesywnie maluję i umieszczam na dioramach.

Malowanie figurek idzie mi zdecydowanie lepiej niż malowanie makiet, stąd wszystkie miniatury, które trafiły do malarskiego warsztatu doczekały się ukończenia. Niestety z makietami nie idzie mi tak dobrze i na dokończenie wciąż czeka Händlerhaus.

Wybrany…


O modelu Gloria Invicta od GameZone Miniatures napisałem już sporo zarówno w recenzji jak i relacjonując malowanie oraz prezentując ukończony pomnik. Dlatego teraz pozwolę sobie tylko krótko przypomnieć szanownemu państwu-draństwu, że budowa tego pomnika chodziła mi po głowie od wielu lat, a temat #32 edycji FKB zmobilizował do realizacji planów.

Odrzucony…

Wykonane z pianki i listewek miejskie makiety oraz pudło z armią Zielonoskórych do WFB to zdecydowanie modele odrzucone, które nie doczekają się kontynuacji prac i malowania.

W przypadku makiet zmieniła mi się nieco wizja tego jak ma wyglądać ukończony stół do gry w Warheim FS, a ponieważ w WFB już nie gram to i figurki Zielonoskórych szybko pudła nie opuszczą.

***
I to by było na tyle. Mam nadzieję, że szanowne państwo-draństwo nie znudziło się za bardzo lekturą powyższego wpisu. Zostały jeszcze dwa dni, więc zachęcam was do udziału w #32 edycji Figurkowego Karnawału Blogowego oraz propagowania inicjatywy wśród znajomych. Publikujcie wpisu na swoich blogach lub blogach swoich znajomych, a o wpisach informujcie w komentarzach na łamach bloga bitewniakowe pogranicza.
***
I to wszystko na dzisiaj. Jeśli szanownemu państwu-draństwu spodobał się wpis i chcecie mi zrobić dobrze to udostępniajcie post oraz zostawcie po sobie ślad klikając na umieszczone poniżej gwiazdki, kwadraty oraz inne G+1 czy FB lubię to!.
Zachęcam także do POLUBIENIA gry Warheim FS na FB,
dołączenia do BLOGOSFERY oraz komentowania wpisów!
Zapraszam także na forum AZYLIUM, które skupia graczy
Mordheim i Warheim FS.

Southern Army Assembles

Posted on April 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I have scored seven Southern Jagers and one more Northern Hunter off eBay.  I’ve gone from not having enough models for a full squad to being able to make up two squads, which means I now have a Southern Milicia force to face my Northern Guard.  I can’t begin to tell you all how insanely happy this makes me, and here I was thinking I’d never get into Heavy Gear, what with being the old BattleTech grognard that I am.

And here are the other pictures from the RAFM catalogue of Southern Gears I found online, with a list of all the models issued.  Again, those listed in bold are those I’ve managed to get hold of.


Jager 1300
Blitz Jager 130 


(I have two)
Black Mamba 1302
Long Fang Black Mamba 1303

Iguana 1304
Blitz Iguana 1305
Spitting Cobra 1306
Striking Cobra 1307

Stone Mason 1308

Fire Jager 1309
 


(I have two)
Snakeye Black Mamba 1310
 


(I have one coming)
Support Cobra 1311


RazorFang Black Mamba 1312

King Cobra 1313
Light Artillery 1314

Number apparently not used 1315
Standard Infantry 1316 


(not shown)
Heavy Infantry 1317 

(not shown)

Recon Infantry 1318


Sniper Infantry 1319
Chameleon 1322  

(not shown)
Barbed Fang 1323  

(not shown)
Black Box Iguana 1324 

(not shown)

Jager Recon 1325 

(not shown, but I have six)
Artillery Cobra 1326 

(not shown, but I have one)

Lidded Iguana 1327 
 

(not shown)
Spitting Mamba 1328 
 

(not shown)
Armored Jager 1329 

(not shown, but I have one)

”Azure Devils” Box 2051
 

(not shown)
Naga Strider 2054
 

(not shown)
Hun Tanks 2056 

(not shown)

So as before, I have a plan, which is to finish painting my Northern Guard before moving on to make up a squad of Southern Gears.  After that I’m thinking of going back and making up my Grizzly, Jaguar Firestarter and Mammoth Northern Gears.  I now have a box full of old RAFM Gears, a veritable lead mountain, stashed away for a rainy day.

Farsight Kickstarter Review

Big bastard robots!

That’s what my podcast co-host and Polyhedron Collider writer said to me when I showed him some details about Farsight, the new game from Braincrack games that the entire Polyhedron Collider crew got to play on Tabletopia this week along with Lewis from Braincrack. And the game certainly is about big bastard robots, with a mix of game-play from Space Marine, Stratego and Heroes of Normandie.
