Painting Tally – February 2019

February turned out to be a much better month for painting than January had been. Not only did I finally finish those damned Normans, but I also made a start on all the miniatures that I had acquired for Rangers of Shadow Deep Painted: 52 32 Norman cavalry, plus 8 giant spiders and 12 giant rats. On previous performances, this was a very good month. YTD Painted: 52   Purchased: 95 Last month was always likely to be a big month for purchasing miniatures, as it included the first wargames show of the year. Couple this with buying more miniatures for Rangers of Shadow Deep and catching up with Star Wars Legion releases, and many figures were added to the lead/plastic mountain.   First up were 29 miniatures for Burrows & Badgers, a number that was swelled by the arrival of their latest kickstarter.   Then we had LOTS of creatures for Rangers of Shadow Deep – 51 models in total.   Finally there were four new boxes of Star Wars Legion to collect – 15 additional models here.

Battleground Fantasy Warfare reprint on Kickstarter

On a recent Musings from the Bunker podcast, I was talking about the fact that you didn’t necessarily require miniatures to play miniature wargames, and quoted Battleground Fantasy Warfare, and it’s historical counterpart, as ways of representing units on the tabletop. I am very pleased to report that the Men of Hawkeshold and the Battleground Fantasy Warfare game are currently the subject of a Kickstarter, to look at reprinting this game with a new set of rules. As part of this, you can order reprints of any of the packs from the original game – whether that be Dwarves or Elves for the Fantasy game, or the Persian/Macedonian expansion for the Historical game. At time of writing, the project has reached just under half of its $20,000 funding target. It is running until 7th November, with delivery due in December 2019. Battleground Fantasy Warfare was one of the first games we featured on the podcast, way back in episode 8 – it’s great to see it being updated and reprinted. You ca
