The Croods

This is a bit of a special moment movie, as we watched it the saturday evening after Crisis.  lying only on a matrass in an empty living room, on the small screen of a computer streaming Netflix.Because the whole appartment in Antwerp has been packed up that weekend, ready for the move...Due to the overprotectiveness of their father, a cavemen family survives a natural disaster and wild predators.  But when the daughter, Eep, sneaks out at night, she makes contact with a human, Guy, who tells her the world is going to end unless they ride the sun.Following an earthuake, they discover a hidden jungle and new creatures, but soon the natural disasters start to catch up and they have to go to new lands again.  Guy guides them to a mountaintop but as a chism is froming, Grug must make a big sacrifice and does so, overcoming his nature and his phylosophy of being always afraid keeps you alive.It was a fun little animation movie (especially the sloth is hilarious, tadadadaaaa) and the voices of Nicola

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 1

Rekamark was not a very impressive city, but anyone who wanted to go to Felstadt found themselves at one of the last halfway civilized outposts of mankind before entering the ruins of the cursed city.    "Rekamark," Balthasar said to his apprentice Achibald, thoughtfully folding his arms.    "You will never find a more wretched […]

Journey of the Maulers: A legendary pun

For quite some time I wasn't sure whether I should repaint this gentleman or not. This thrower was the first conversion for the Maulers and also the test mini for the colour scheme. I remember sacrificing the figure of a classic savage orc shaman on boar to get the hand that points away from him […]

Game Of Thrones

After a few games of Game Of Thrones A Song Of Ice And Fire, I am working on expanding my Lannister army. My 30 points at the moment consist of Guardsmen, Halberdiers, Mountains Men andthe rather effective Knights Of Casterly Rock. I have to decide on what is next out of more Halberdiers, more Guardsmen, more Knights or a different unit such as Crossbowmen, Warriors Sons or the Kings Guard.

Dispatches from the front III

Time to upgrade the blog front page as all the Kickstarter's have now landed. Just in time for the BBC's adaption of the War of the Worlds, Grey Fox Game's two player card building game landed. Each encounter lasts around an hour and it certainly been the game of the month, although its damned hard for the alien invaders to win although each game came down to the last 4 points.Talking with fellow board gamers, its good to know that the same mindset stretches across both ends of the hobby when we look to justify the outlay for figures, paint time or board games.Having played War of the Worlds at least 5 times now in my own mind I have already covered the cost of the game if you measure it in terms of a good meal out or a few pints and a curry.On the strength of this the War of the Worlds project might get a bit of a make over or at least a couple of bunkers to help protect the earthly defenders.The models within the Kickstrater are a lovely touch and really bring the game to life, they may even get a lick

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 24

I wanted to give Kamal’s new followers, the pygmies, something unique. Magical items are a way, but just picking from a list did not seem sufficient. My earlier thoughts about their weapons being local but described by standards in the book gave me an idea. Since they are (future Indonesian) tribes-people the idea of magical […]

Guest Post - "In Deep Trouble" Dungeon Crawl

I was lucky enough to find a buddy in college whose outlook, interests and nerd obsessions fit seamlessly with mine. We roomed together in school and shared a series of crummy apartments after graduating, filling our free time with epic RPG games, Battletech, and the Star Wars CCG.I kept close contact with him as he crossed the country to pursue a career in academia, and we've managed to get together once a year and roll some dice or tap some cards. He recently began working on RPG-like dungeon crawl game. I posted a few of his 'work in progress' pics to my twitter feed, but encouraged him to share more about his game to a blog. He balked at setting up one of his own, but took me up on my offer to host a post of his right here.Check this out, I think it's pretty neat.Hi! I’m Mark, and John has graciously given me the opportunity to show off a new dungeon crawl that I’ve been working on. All of the terrain was handmade by myself, with only some of the scatter having been cobbled together from pre-made sets. Al

The next batch of Mordor troops have been finished, as my ranks keep swelling fo the dark lord Sauron.And this time, it's in the form of more Morannon orcs from the Pelennor boxed set.The total amount of "upgraded" Orc warriors this time are 18 of the warriors, armed in a variety of ways.  The batch consists of 13 hand weapon and shield, 3 spear and shield and 2 with just basic spears, these add some serious rank and file numbers to the budding force.  Not to mention a nice boost of 147 points to the tally.What's more, they have been 'in progress' on the to do pile for over a year, as they came in the starter box, so they'll be a mark off for my Bingo as well...Now to really start painting up some characters to lead all my rabble on the field of battle...
