Another 3 knights from the Skeleton Horde box. In fact, only two of them are the original miniatures from that set. I managed to get an extra knight with the horse by converting an old model from mid-90s that I had in my collection. Now I own 6 knights…

Coming off the holiday break, last night’s game session was more shooting the breeze than miniature foes. Everyone was more intent on hanging out and chatting than getting serious about a game. That said we did a quick brawl that let me put two new terrain pieces on the table: a ruined apartment building and … Continue reading “New Terrain and ZP pictures”

The jötnar

Posted on October 27th, 2017 under , . Posted by

The climactic final scenario of the Thorfinn’s Saga mini-campaign will be Thorfinn’s attempt to ‘appropriate’ a magic held by a jötunn, or troll. In regular games of Palaeo Diet they can be used as apex predators, but I have a mind to create a new profile for them to represent their more hominid aspects. These two beasties are Copplestone Castings Yetis, but they will do nicely for my purposes.

Jötunn no. 1. Although provided with ‘modesty’ fur in the front, both figures have characterful bare bottoms – and somewhat more surprisingly – scrotums. Funny, that the Blogger spell checker doesn’t recognise the plural form of scrotum. Ho hum, lets move on.

Jötunn no. 2.

And the obligatory scale shot showing the Macrocosm dwarves with the Copplestone yetis. I think if Thorfinn and the lads ever get into this position, they should keep an eye open for the door of Valhalla.

Thorfinn Hardluck and his crew

Posted on October 25th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I decided some time ago, that what I really needed was a couple of vikings. Not a whole warband, and certainly not an army, but just a few, to scratch that Norse itch. Palaeo Diet: Eat or be Eaten gave me the perfect excuse! Mind you, they may also find their way onto a Song of Blades and Heroes table some time in the future. Allow me to present Jarl Thorfinn Hardluck, Thorvald the Touched, and Thorbjørn Bjarnason. All three are Norse dwarves from Macrocosm Miniatures – the pack is mysteriously called ‘Ragnar’s Crew’, but I’m sure it has taken no inspiration from any TV shows…

I intentionally went looking for Norsemen with exaggerated features to fit in with the exaggerated feel of the rest of my Palaeo Diet stuff. These Macrocosm ones seemed to fit the bill, although there are presently no photos of them on the website. The sculpts are great, although some of the moulding lacked a little detail, most noticeable around the ears and on the hands. I also note that while my pack had more than enough left hand options – it had one right hand too few. The jarl’s sword hand was cut from the shield-maiden figure and reattached here. I didn’t mind because I only wanted three hunters, and managed to put these together in a satisfactory manner. Thorbjørn’s bow and quiver came from an unrelated plastic sprue.

As well as generic hunts, these hunters are destined for a Palaeo Diet mini-campaign that I am working on, titled Thorfinn’s Saga, following the jarl’s epic quest to find a magic ring and bring prosperity to his struggling people. Keep an eye out for more details on that in the future. For now, here are the lads:

Jarl Thorfinn Hardluck

Equipment: As appropriate for a man of his standing Thorfinn wields a well-wrought sword. The sword is treated as a Club (PDEEp.5). It can only be used against beasts or foes in base contact, but confers a +1 modifier to Thorfinn’s attack rolls.

Traits: Thorfinn is the ruler of his people and insists on leading from the front, an attitude that has made him Crotchety (PDEE p.13). Nevertheless, his experience (and the fortune of having inherited some armour) has forged Thorfinn into a formidable warrior, rendering him a Brute (PDEE p.13).


Thorvald the Touched

Equipment: Thorvald carries multiple axes which he throws at foes and wields in combat with equal skill. Axes are treated as Spears (PDEEp.5). They can be used against beasts or foes up to 1x Short distance away.

Traits: Touched by the gods and a little weird, Thorvald has knowledge of many natural and supernatural things. He is both a Healer (PDEE p.14) and a Thinker (PDEE p.14).

Thorbjørn Bjarnason

Equipment: Thorbjørn carries a bow. He may pelt beasts and foes up to 1x Long distance, but always suffers a -1 modifier to his pelting and attack rolls.

Traits: The youngest surviving member of Thorfinn’s household, Thorbjørn eager to prove his worth; he is therefore Excited (PDEEp.14). However, his skill with a bow is already spoken of highly, and Thorbjørn is known as a skilled Hunter (PDEE p.14).

I didn’t mind because I only wanted three hunters, and managed to put these together in a satisfactory manner. From my dealings with Macrocosm to date, I’m sure they would have sent me out a spare right hand or two had I asked for it. Thorbjørn’s bow and quiver came from an unrelated plastic sprue.

Dusk Wardens and a new Wizard

Not a lot of photo ops from our recent DnD sessions, altho we last left our heroes carrying an injured old man with dementia to safety while his family farm burned  in the distance. (the goblin bard swears he had NOTHING to do with that. He only set the pig pen ablaze.) That was after … Continue reading “Dusk Wardens and a new Wizard”

HiAs you remember, some time ago I wrote that I had presented all my dwarves from Avatars of War Ironshieds set. It turned out that I lied and several models from the box have never been published. I found 3 old photos while doing a cleanup on my disk….
