Lion Rampant


Autumn Project - Lion Rampant War of the Roses

And now for something completely different.......having completed the tank building for the What a Tanker! Operation Blackcock project and having already based most of the aircraft for the Bag the Hun Channel Front project too, I am in a good place for the Lard Day preparations, with either option advanced to a point that painting can wait until the new year.So, as I haven't done anything in 28mm for literally years, I thought I'd spend the next couple of months on a War of the Roses retinue (or two) for Lion Rampant. I've had this on the bucket list for a few years and have all the Perry Miniatures plastic box sets required for a retinue of bills and bows, with some light cavalry as well, so I thought it would be fun to get it going. The plan is to build, base and paint one unit and/or twelve figures at a time, starting with the household foot knights and then working through the bow or polearm units of twelve figures at a steady rate, concentrating on one retinue at a time. This way I will be able to h

Landwasters and Raven feeders for Lion Rampant Dark ages

“Landwasters and Raven Feeders”: Official rules for Lion Rampant in the Dark AgesBack in issue 331 (May 2015) of the superb Wargames Illustrated magazine, I looked at how to raise a Warband (which seems a more suitable title for this period than the medieval ‘Retinue’; your Leader is restyled as your Warlord) for your preferred Dark Ages nation, and added a list of Boasts more suited to the Dark Ages.As that issue now seems almost impossible to find, according to some eager correspondents who have been in touch, here I present an abridged version of the article so that the Dark Ages Lion Rampant love can be shared! I’ve removed a certain amount of background info, some of the sample warbands, and of course you see none of the lovely photos that accompanied the article – but this blog entry does give you everything you need to play ‘Landwasters and Raven Feeders’.But if you do find a copy of issue 331, snap it up!Troop Types and Points ValuesThe upgrades available in this period are more limited

28mm scale Saxon Church

The print came out great.  The total run time was just over 36 hours.  This time I made sure that the first level was put down to the glass bed with no problems.  The two 28mm figures are to show the size of the church.   Currently make the walls for the Norman Castle.   Each wall section run for 24 hours.  Looks like this will take a week or two to complete.   Hope this will inspire people to try 3d printing to their game table
