Dragon Rampant


15mm Battered Markers for Dragon Rampant......

........and some ladders!The gravestones are leftovers and MDF from Blotz, these are used to signify a unit in distress marker for the rules, rather than a paper/plastic marker I decided on these little bits and don't they look well battered!The ladders were HO scale and plastic, mainly designed for siege type shenanigans........15mm figures for a little scale shot!

Phoenix Clan for Dragon Rampant

Hot on the tails of the Lion Rampant Clan Warband for Dragon Rampant, I finished up a small force of a Legend of the Five Rings Phoenix Clan for Dragon Rampant. This was mostly a re-basing operations - though I did paint up two new minis to make units the right number.I have to admit, I have very little idea about the actual make up of the armies of Rokugan. I never played Clan War (the miniatures game these were originally made for), I never really played Legends of the Five Rings (the Collectible Card Game), and, while I HAVE a pile of reference books for various editions of the role-playing game, I've read very few of them and only briefly ran a game of Savage Worlds lonely based on what little I knew about the setting. So these armies are based solely on the little I know about the different clans and what few miniatures I have available.I think a lot of these miniatures are 20 years old now. I picked up the ones I have 8-9 years ago. I don't think they're getting any easier to come by, so I probably won'

Lion Clan for Dragon Rampant

Somehow I got thinking about my collection of East Asian Fantasy collection (I think it was probably from seeing the "Daimyo" expansion in the current Reaper Bones Kickstarter...?). I had previously planned to do Hordes of the Things armies for each of the Clans in AEGs Legends of the Five Rings, plus keep a bunch on individual bases for role-playing games, and later I expanded those a bit to be used as Buntai in Osprey Wargame's Ronin - Samurai skirmish game.The largest and most complete of the HOTT armies was the Lion Clan army. I completed a Hordes of the Things army for them in 2011-2012(?) along with an opposing Phoenix Clan army. I used them in the Summer 2012 HOTT Campaign... and... never used them again. They've never even faced the other L5R HOTT Army I built - the Phoenix Clan. I also have a number of minis that were dedicated to a Lion Clan Ronin Buntai.Recently I have been reconsidering my basing standards and whether I'm likely to use some of the units/armies I have on multi-figure bases. I'

STILL More Mistakes Were Made

Although this wasn't nearly so costly as some of the previous mistakes...and it didn't involve Eldar...(or Imperial Guard..)I ordered a bunch of plastic stuff from Russia...I'm not sure what I was thinking...Mouslings - seem to all be later renaissance mousketeers... They are a touch bigger than the Reaper Bones Mouslings I recently painted - but not so much that I wouldn't use them together.KnightsSkeletonsOrcsDwarvesI saw some of the miniatures posted on, I think, the Dragon Rampant Facebook group and a mention that they were available on eBay... so I went looking... and eventually tracked down a website in Russia that sold them.  All told 100 of these hard plastic fantasy chibi AND six vehicles AND a sprue of terrain bits came to a total of about $80CAD ($61USD) - including shipping!? So... wasn't the worst mistake I've ever made...What was I thinking I'd use all these for? I don't know... Dragon Rampant? That's just silly... I mean, I HAVE piles of armies for it already - plus piles more I already ne

A Song Of Ice & Fire

I must be mad, I have given myself another whole army to paint, again. But having played a couple of games recently, I really like the rules and thought I should jump in to A Song Of Ice And Fire. Although I resisted buying any at Colours recently, I decided to punt for a Lannister force in the end and ebayed a good selection. I need to get undercoating this weekend…

[EN/PL] Dead Marshes Spectre #2 / Widmo z Martwych Bagien #2

Hello Everyone!Return to Dead Marshes with Gollum, Frodo and Sam today. In the PREVIOUS Part you could learn a bit about the history of this land, where it got its name from, and what event contributed to the appearance of specific ... inhabitants here.        To summarize, the Dead Marshes spread across the Dagorlad plain, north of Mordor, on the eastern shore of the Anduin.Their name comes from the battle that was fought there on Dagorlad, in which great armies met: the people and elves of the Last Alliance fought against Sauron's forces. After the battle, the corpses of elves and people were buried on the plain, then flooded. That's how the title Dead Marshes were created.        In the one of the chapter of Two Towers entitled Through the marshes, a route of hobbit wandering: Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee, led by Gollum.The Hobbits saw the dead underwater and vicious flames hovering over the swamps, which Gollum called the "candles o

[EN/PL] Dead Marshes Spectre / Widmo z Martwych Bagien

Hello everyone!Today, a short break from the historical atmosphere for my favorite Lord of the Rings series. I decided to paint one of the models that I have already taken for over a decade.        Many metal patterns of models that came out during the premiere of the movies and shortly after them have undoubted charm and great painting potential. I come back to them very, very kindly.The Spectre is a creature haunting the Dead Marshes through where Frodo, Sam and Gollum passed in the Two Towers, on their journey to the heart of Mordor. They are not ghosts or zombies, and as Gollum used to say, something like specters: "You can't touch them, feel them. Maybe it's just shapes, without a body?"But let's give voice to master Tolkien and the three heroes traveling through the Dead Marshes...In the dark half-light, as far as the eye could see in south and east, wetlands and swamps stretched out before them. Fog stretched over the stinking backwaters, a suffocating odor hung in the air. In the d

[EN/PL] Merry & Pippin at Pelennor Fields (and the Westfalia Halflings kickstarter!) / Meriadok Brandybuck i Peregrin Tuk podczas bitwy na Polach Pelennoru.

                                                                    Hello all! Today, an entry for the ongoing KICKSTARTER "The Third Breakfast" from WESTFALIA.The collection, which is already a BIG success, offers us beautiful, various designs of halflings. I have already had the opportunity to paint a few minis from WESTFALIA (people and halflings) and I must admit that the (resin) models looks great.Check for yourself:https://www.westfaliaminiatures.com/https://www.facebook.com/WestfaliaMiniatures/https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/the-third-breakfast/postsOn this occasion, I painted two halflings, whom I decided to style at least a little bit for Meriadoc and Peregrin, Merry and Pippin, from the Return of the King, more precisely from the battle of Minas Tirith, when the fate of separated friends inter
