Building a Wizard’s Tower

One of the scenarios in the Sellswords & Spellslingers book demands a wizard’s tower. While there are several available to buy (from the plain Ziterdes keep to the formidable Tabletop World spire), I decided to scratch build my own. The starting point was a box of pringles. I glued it unto another cardboard roll to, as I wanted to have it protrude from a rocky outcrop. The basis was provided by an old single record. For the rocky outcrop, I used blue foam and chunks of tree bark. The basis for a small secondary tower was formed by an empty toilet roll. The next step was to fill the holes and cracks with modelling clay (of the air-drying kind) and filler. I also made adoor for the small tower was made out of wood and a parapet for the top platform. I then added some details. First, cardboard brickwork to break up the surface of the tower. Second, an oriel made from yet another cardboard roll. Third, the door and windows. I bought those from Thomarillion, as I didn’t trust myself to scratch b

More Imperial Assault: Jabba's buddies

I finished more figures from Imperial Assault (about 2/3rd through commission). This week, I did some henchmen for Jabba.First up were some Gamorrean guards. There were suppose to be four, but one spear was broken. When the replacement figure arrives, I'll paint him to match.These were nice figures--great detail and lively sculpts.I also started on four Weejay pirates. I finished two this week.Again, really nice figures. I spent some time trying to hand-shade some of the materials. Not sure it mattered in the end. But happy enough with the results. The other two have a different base and different colour scheme.I have some more pirates and some heroes underway and then I turn my attention to some Hot figures (which require a different approach to basing).

The Men Who Would Be Kings: The Khandahar Field Force Exercises

A couple of weeks back George managed to arrived at BIG sans his natives. Fortunately I have amassed over 48 points of Imperial troops for The Men Who Would Be Kings, so as a bit of fun we decided to try out the game with two 24 point forces just to see how Regulars would fare against Regulars (with half an eye on Rebels and Patriots). For onlookers the sight of Brits v Brits was passed off as the Khandahar Field Force undertaking exercises!First off we decided to run the Take The High Road scenario. We've played this previously with the defenders winning in two occasions and the attacker once. This time George was the attacker and I have to confess I had a wry smile as he found ordering his Regulars to move to be as much a chore as I have (especially those pesky Highlanders!).He took the cannon in his 24 points and proceeded to blast away at my defending force on the hill line. However as his troops advanced across the dusty Khandahar plain my troops proceeded to punch huge holes in his force, quickly destro

What Next?

So I am in the middle of the biggest painting binge I can remember and I am worrying about my mojo going. It's not quite irony but I can't think what else to call it.I was saying that I have been enjoying painting figures for my Viking game. Viking history has been a big part of my life during this process too and I have learned a lot and enjoyed the process. Over the years gaming has caused me to do a lot of reading especially in the area of history so it has to be a good thing. So I guess I am looking for the next thing to catch my imaginationPart of me wants to say that I am running out of figures to paint for this game (I think have painted at least 550 figures so far). Obviously I am not running out of figures. No figure painter ever does. There are boxes of the things, some older than most of the gamers I know.The thing is what I have isn't lighting my candle much into a few weeks away. Having been subject to the random shaftathon that is life I have gone from being relatively wealthy to being the poore

Turning the Flank at Reval: A Red Actions Campaign

I ran this campaign for two friends back in 2011. It was run on its own blog, but I have decided to consolidate my blogs, so I shall post all that content here over the next few weeks or months as my schedule permits, and delete the other blog. It's unlikely to be used again, so there seems little point leaving it lying around, and more people might enjoy the action here.Campaign introductionThe Freikorps have succeeded in Lithuania and Latvia, and are now racing against time and the waning patience of the Entente to reach the last of the Baltic States.The current campaign uses scenario 5 Turning the Flank at Reval from the Beyond the River Don campaign supplement for Red Actions. A Freikorps force must elude the Estonian defenders and exit a little less than half their numbers off the northern edge of the campaign map. Naturally, the Estonians will be trying to stop them.Campaign map at start (Click for a larger version):House Rules and ClarificationsRouted TroopsTroops that have routed from the battlefield
