Crom's Anvil


15mm Battle Valor Medieval or Fantasy Civilians......

..............and some Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles!Some 15mm civilians from Battle Valor, nice sculpts, perfect for fantasy and many other periods I believe.......Attempted some size comparison shots, Khurasan, Battle Valor, CP Models, Battle Valor and Croms Anvil......Met up with Daniel this week and while he was in Dublin with his girlfriend attending a concert he dropped in to Forbidden Planet and picked up Battlestar Galactica: Starship Battles starter box plus two extras fighters.Slightly similar to X-Wing but more emphasis on movement, speed, kinetic energy and altitude, there is just 2D6 for shooting and damage is pulled from a stack of tokens with random damage score, another separate stack for collisions, more complicated than X-Wing, no shields, no saving throws, there are cards giving extra maneuver skills, firepower etc......Took us a little while to get set up and ready but combat is brutal, game was over in 20mins, I destroyed one of my own craft by steering in to an asteroid

Crom’s Anvil

Well, the writing isn’t going so well (see last post, two months ago!), although I have got a RuneQuest Glorantha campaign underway since then, so some writing has taken place. I will return to Tales of the Reaching Moon soon, honest...In the meantime, I have been painting, as ever, but recently my wandering eye has landed on a sparkling gem I have been eyeing for quite a while now. Crom’s Anvil, run by Michael Stockin, formerly of Angel Barracks fame.I remember the site going live almost two years ago and since then the range of Hyborian Age style buildings has grown, and is still growing, into a most impressive range. There are some great adobe buildings, walls and general tabletop ‘clutter’ for a desert town, the town of Simurgh,  some mud huts and wooden palisade style fencing for the village of Utuseb and general open steppe type terrain elements such as camps, oases, rock formations and a ruined temple.All of this is beautifully realised and I still covet it all, but there are also figures.
