Silk Road Elves & Gladiators

More old creations from retired papermini artists, anyone remember Geocities or Yahoo Groups? Ragnar Shadowolf made these Gladiators in the style of Gwindel and although they are only single-sided with mirrored backs I thought they were definitely worth preserving. The Silk Road Elves are the last of the Wildagreenbough/Anne Welborn collection that I know of. These are hand-drawn and colored and were crafted in 2002-2003. They are also single-sided with mirrored backs.http://onemonk.com/guest-dl.htmlhttp://onemonk.com

Showcase: High Elves Korhil, Captain of the White Lions

Hi, all! Today it's Oldhammer time! I found some old High Elves and started with Korhil, Captain of the White Lions. A really nice model even though it is made from white metal. Ah, the old days... but wait: maybe these times will come back, as GamesWorkshop announced to bring back the "Old World". Let's see what this will be all about... meanwhile, I started my trip down memory lane...How do you feel about Warhammer – The Old World? Leave a comment or reaction below...

Dia de Muertos

The most recent movie I watched together with Noshi is this recently released 2019 Mexican animation movie, made in 2019.In the same style of story as Disney`s Coco, it visits the mexican Day of the Dead festival, or Dia de Muertos, for a story filled with magic and some humour.In the Mexican town of Santa Clara, lives Salma, a 16 year-old orphan who never got to meet her biological parents. The only story she's been told her whole life is that they abandoned her. Salma has spent most of her life dedicated to searching out clues for her parents' identity and their whereabouts with little to no luck, until she discovers a special book that is filled with stories of Santa Clara and the history of their people. With this new special book, Salma sets off onto an adventure with her two brave and heart-warming foster brothers, Jorge and Pedro, to find the missing links to her family's heritage in hopes to finally get to meet her long lost parents.It's not to bad a movie, even if it is not the greatest arou

Caravanserai - The Dangers of an Escort Scenario

Haldor, a Mirholme Warrior from Talomir Tales Distant Shores went Carousing and landed a Job Offer - Escort. Sounded easy enough to me,  escort 3 NPC Civilians to another area of the map. Haldor hired a couple of other Warriors  and a Caster to help out. Resolving the first PEF showed me why Escort could be the most dangerous Encounter in Talomir Tales.First concern is that Civilians aren't very good in combat as they can only melee. These NPCs are unarmed so when it's melee time they would count as non-lethal versus lethal armed enemies. Usually their Rep is low; 3 and sometimes Rep 4.Now the real problem happens when you roll to see how may NPC s you run into, something I had never realized before! The Civilians count as part of the Band and that increases the number of enemy you might meet. In this fight I had 7 in Haldor's Band, but 3 are weak Civilians. They ran into 7 Orcs.After placing the enemies on the table I rolled for Action and realized that if the enemy acted first they would char
