Hello everyone! This week I’m talking airbrushes! Yes I purchased an airbrush set and I have used it in anger! I think I got pretty good results from a cheaper airbrush for a first timer.

The rules worked very well. They are simple and very clearly written and also very fast playable. The rules cover some sieges, which I am very curious to use. The set cover only the times of the crusades but I believe that the system can be used for all medieval conflicts, only the cards need to be redesign. Finaly I can said that my Normans can be very easily converted for that game. I just need to buy some movement trays with a correct size, which I am going to do during the Claymore!
Zasady sprawiły sie znakomicie. Są proste, przejrzyście napisane i bardzo szybkie w grze. Zasady zawierają w sobie równiez oblężenia, co bardzo chciałbym kiedyś sprawdzić. Soldiers of God są przeznaczone do rozgrywania konfliktów w czasach wypraw krzyżowych, ale moim zdaniem moga byc użyte do jakichkolwiek konfliktów średniowiecznych, jedyne co trzeba by zrobić to zmienić karty do gry. Na koniec moge powiedzieć, ze moi Normanowie mogą byc bardzo łatwo przekonwerterowani do tej gry, jedyne co musze zrobić to kupić zbiorcze podstawki w odpowiednim rozmiarze, co zamierzam zrobić podczas Claymore!

Whereas Twilight looks at things in a slightly different light; the Tolkien based races are gone and a more organic set of races dwell on the face of Anyaral. … Continue reading The World Of Twilight →
