For those of us who enjoy a wide range of games and settings, there’s invariably a period or genre that captures our imagination more than any other. [...] The post If you go down to the Woods today… appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
Tinkerturf, the heavy-card pre-finished Terrain kits from TinkerHouse games has now released their excellent Terrain Kits to the public! I show off three of the kits fully assembled and actually walk through how easy they are to build. Some details: “https://shop.tinkerhousegames.com/ Elevation – $34.99 USD Ladders & Catwalks – $24.99 USD Cover – $32.99 USD ontainers – $24.99 USD MagLev Depot – $49.99 USD MagLev Rail – $36.99 USD At launch we will sell and ship within the continental US for a flat shipping & handling rate of $20.

I have managed to make most of my goals this week and exceeded a few of them. So all in all I am quite happy with myself. This was going to be a simple week. I was expecting to be busy. I was. Tired now and ready for bed and it is not yet 9pm.The week began with a plan to paint ten figures. At some point I added one on the quiet because I thought it was going to be easy. Most of what I planned to paint this week was from the Star Saga game by Mantic. From the first time I saw it I liked the idea of buying it. It was the right price, there were plenty of figures and a decent amount of usable terrain. There were many sci-fi games they would work for. I had some ideas for the X-Com game that has been on the gaming burner of a low heat for about two decades. Mostly at the time I thought they would be good for what I had planned for Titansgrave: The Ashes Of Valcana, a game I really like the idea of but doubt I would get too many players.Anyway the first set of figures I decided to paint were the security guards.
Dark Age comes to Throwback Thursdays! It’s time to get back to Dark Age on a new day.
Having spent much of the day shivering and sleeping I thought it was time I posted what I did yesterday. Things planned for the week are now getting close to completion. So all in all I am feeling quite happy. Despite the shivering.I am even getting close to finishing off the terrain. There are loads of bits to do, enough to do three linear feet, which has kind of put me off so far. Still it's there and and I want to get it done for a couple of game I have planned.Now I thinking about next week. I have found eight figures that I think I purchased in 1992. This would be a nice thing to get out of the Lead Mountain. Not the oldest thing I own but probably the oldest thing I can find at the moment. They turned up a few years ago but there is one missing. I was hoping to find the missing one before I started but what the hell. If I do get round to painting them I have no idea what I will use them for. At the moment I just want to.
This week I am hoovering up some more of what is hidden in the lead mountain including Crooked Dice, Gripping Beast, Crusader and what I thought was Ironclad but now I am not so sure. This is the last of the Viking Game stuff I got half a decade ago and the rest rest is also about that age or a little bit olderThis should put to bed the Viking project. The Crooked Dice figures I think were designed for the 1970s TV show concept but I figure that they will do for the 1940s Weird War 2. I did dally with the idea of Victorian skirmish games but the person I thought was going to get involved with didn't follow through. This seems to happen to me a lot. I buy stuff to play games with others who then play a single game, maybe two but generally don't play any at all. Still a friend of mine runs a game (intermittently) in that era and they might just do for the 1930s although they will look out of date for the 1940s.This will put me at least ten figures ahead by the end of the week. At the end of last year I wa
It's Day 24 of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge IX (well, day 24 or thereabouts, depending where you are in relation to the International Date Line), and I thought it's about time for an update on my own output so far.First up was a Viking take on Santa Claus, the Jarl of Yule.A Wargames Foundry figure, he looks superbly unimpressed at the next selection, an Ice Troll from Reaper Miniatures. He's one of their Bones range, and repays the effort taken to pick out the details.The next submission was for the Bonus Theme Round 'Reconnaissance'. I picked a couple of H.P. Lovecraft's Mi-Go, the alien fungi from Yuggoth (aka Pluto). They are spying on the humans in preparation for a mission of conquest, and one has purchased a telescope to help in the task. Unfortunately, he's completely failed to take into account his species' complete lack of eyes.The latest submission is this little fellow;A toy scorpion re-purposed as a tabletop gaming piece and given a shiny new coat of paint, Mr Stabby is just the thing
So the end of a another year. Time for the usual renewal and looking forward to the future kind of post. Right now it does feel like a time of renewal. The new year appears to be a time when my life is about to change. Significantly so. In previous years this has been an upbeat post. It is odd that it was this day last year that everything started to change. Today things seem very precarious still. My predictions for the year to come seem to be more vague ideas than they have been in years gone by.This year has seen me me lose my auntie, my home, my relationship, my beloved car and about seventy five percent of my income. I have recently quit my job and now have to find one. Where I am living may be untenable soon. Many of these problems may sort themselves out and I have a feeling they will. Sadly it looks like nothing is going to sort out Fallout 76.This year has been a bit of a let down on the gaming front at least so I am at a bit of a loss of what to write this year. After splitting up at the beginning o

Why have a Spirit Lord all about casting Pysgenics when you can have a Spirit Lord with 2 massive swords!! I do love the Ice Caste. Advertisements
He is big. He is mean. and he carries a BIG axe. Its Lucky to his friends and he is the most fun I have had with a model in along time. Yes the sculpt is old, but he is … Continue reading →

He maybe shamed as an Ice Caste member but at least his bow is nasty and he can deliver some sunder armour from a far (no-one likes sunder armour).. Advertisements
Very static model but nothing a little skirt wont fix. actually pretty fun to paint though. Advertisements
Yes they are old, old models but I do like them and with some GS I have some gimp masks for the foot clan ? Advertisements
