15mm gigantic magical mushrooms from Scotia Grendel..........Some mushrooms to add some scenery to my fantasy gaming, can be used to hide behind or for some hallucinogenic farming........goblins love them!15mm figures to give some idea of scale......Currently working on half a slightly derelict caravan man cave for storing the hobby......Q: Why did the mushroom get invited to all the parties? A: Because he's a fungi!
Several miniatures for one of my boardgames: Descent Second Edition. We also use them during RPG sessions and for wargaming. One of the Merriods was painted by my sister thus they are different. Kilka maźniętych na początku tego roku figurek do gry planszowej Descent. Ot tak żeby się lepiej grało. Modele są wykorzystywane również do sesji RPG oraz bitewniaków. Ciemnoniebieski Merrioda pomalowała moja siostra dllatego modele są inne.
A little palette after so much Fistful of Lead playtesting. We had a second generation Basement General visiting so I pulled out a game that's fun and easy to pick that isn't mine. We also changed the activation rules so a failed activation didn't end your turn completely.A Choas-Orc-Goblin force had come down from the mountains to seize two fords on the river in order to launch a bigger invasion.The Northmen called in a few favors from the Men of the West and the Warriors Four to help hold the line. The Northmen with a friendly Giant Goblin HordesThe Warriors FourAttack! Beastmen take the bridge Borax the Despoiler. Possibly the toughest "unit" on the table. Reduced to hiding in the woods. I don't think he drew blood for the Blood god all night. SHAME! Gurd the Sturdy stands alone against the Beastmen Hobgobs take the second ford. The Berserkers have already run off. What's conscripted farmer to do? Form Shieldwall! Men of the West! Attack! Forces close early in
My Other Fantasy Army Factions (Prepped and/or Undercoated)There are not so many figures in each of these factions, so I will run through what I have prepped and undercoated so far for each of the three armies; Fomorians, Ushabti, Wolfen.As mentioned previously these will appear as allies to the other LotR factions when used in my own universe battles. I like the idea of some strangeness appearing on the tabletop upon occasion to spice things up a bit.Metal:29 Fomorian warriors2 Ushabti14 Wolfen warriorsIt would be nice to spring these forces onto an unsuspecting opponent and see their reaction. Without knowing points values and so on, the opponent would be likely very wary of attacking these warriors and monsters, which to me seems so much more realistic than the opponent seeing them and saying: "Oh yeah, they are worth twenty points, my three warriors can take one of those down easily".I like the idea of the unknown on the tabletop - it makes for a more fun game. Obviously I would not set a very unbalanced/
The topics I mostly write about on my blog are "Krüger", "Beyond the Pillars of Heracles" and "battle reports".Krüger is one of my best friends who lived in Berlin for a long time, studying philosophy. We have played many tabletop games and we also played Badminton regularly, talking incessantly about strategy games during the breaks.Unfortunately, Krüger moved to Dortmund at the end of March. A few weeks before he left we wrote a scenario for Dragon Rampant, D3+2 Objectives, which we also tested several times. This blog post is about the last game we played when Krüger still lived in Berlin. It was the 16th game of our campaign "Beyond the Pillars of Heracles", taking place on the imaginary island Waltrop. As objective markers we used some mud huts, I recently finished.The Greeks, who had landed on the northwestern coast of Waltrop some time ago, had put the orc tribes, living there, under a lot of pressure and now made a move to attack one of their villages (hexagon 20 on the campaign map). Heracleides the

SCENARIO: D3+2 OBJECTIVESI made a lot of mud huts this year to use them as objectives in our games of Dragon Rampant. I think tabletop games which are about taking objectives are fun because they are often undecided until the end.Krüger and I wrote this scenario for Dragon Rampant. (It's an adaptation of a scenario from a popular Science Fiction wargame which we have played a lot.) Please try it and let us know if it works and how it could be improved ...SET-UPBefore choosing Attackers and Defenders, starting with the winner of a roll-off, the players alternately place D3+2 objectives on the tabletop. These objectives may not be in impassable terrain, nor within 12" of a table edge or another objective.The Defender chooses one of the long table edges and deploys up to a 12" depth from that table's edge. The Attacker deploys in a similar way on the opposite site. The Attacker goes first.SPECIAL RULESNone.ENDING THE SCENARIOPlay until one player has had half or more army points of units removed from play. From
I greet you warmly!I come back to the work of J.R.R. Tolkien in the form of orcs today! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as Saruman used to say, "The Orc era has come!" The more important reason, however, was my shame. I've bought a group of Uruk-hai scouts, a good year ago, that would be nice to paint and join the forces of evil. I decided to make a mini project divided into 3 parts with orcs from Isengard under the name Amon Hen, which is the place of the Battle of the Followship of the Ring with the orc unit. The place of Boromir's death and kidnapping of the hobbits...To today's entry I have also added two elements of the wargaming terrain from Warhead Studio, which perfectly fit me to the ruins of the former watchtower of Gondor guarding the northern extremities of this land.I encourage you to take a look at this manufacturer's offer. It has many great elements of terrain and bases:https://warheadstudio.com/Warhead Studio FBAmon Hen. Part I. Uruk-hai.Uruk-ha
The final set of non-LotR miniatures I have assembled over the last few days is my pack of Rackham's Confrontation Wolfen. Over the years, at trade shows, I have been lucky enough to pick these up very cheaply in deals. Ordinarily these would have cost a fortune, but my collection came in at maybe a third their retail price. All of them are the metal versions before Rackham made the bad mistake of moving to some kind of bendy plastic that nobody liked and therefore did not buy.First up are a couple of Wolfen Warriors and a Wolfen Repentant of some kind that I have not been able to find in their catalogues. I had previously undercoated these figures but there were many spots I missed, so I re-sprayed them for better coverage.Next up are a couple of Wolfen Hunters and a Wolfen Vestal. Again, these were partially undercoated, so I tried to complete the coverage with the spray can.Two more Wolfen Hunters and a Wolfen with a pretty powerful looking crossbow. I imagine the stats for that crossbow will be the same a
The weather has been much brighter and warmer today, so I was able to get into the garden and begin undercoating a few miniatures previously featured, as well as prepping some more of those still on my work bench. Today's miniatures come from the Celtos range by i-Kore Miniatures. They have since been marketed by a variety of other companies, so I am not sure where to get them from now. I managed to buy these at a trade show many moons ago from Brigade Games. I thought I had bought the whole collection, but there are a few more leader types to get and some sirens (female Fomorians, which I probably won't get as they don't really fit in with the male versions imho - they would make a good female only faction though for another game).I have broken my Fomorian collection down into four types and photographed each faction separately.Fomorians with Spears...There are nine of these in the range and I managed to get them all. The barbed spears/harpoons look great for a sea-based bunch of raiders. I was going to pain
