miniatures


My first time playing a Games Workshop game. Kind of*

It was the make up date for the Second Saturday for the Scrum Club. On the agenda was Lord of the Rings skirmish game by Games Workshop. This was a game run by Josh O’Connor, using the LOTR skirmish rules as written. I played Merry (L) and Josh played Pippin (r). They didn’t have the cool Western blades from the Barrow Downs, per the books. Nor the Elven cloaks, as we aren’t into Lorien yet. Steve played Aragorn, Joe played Frodo, Zach, Rich and Francisco played Nazguls. We were all heroic level characters that were head and shoulders above the regular schlub troops in this game system. Our job was to start touching the Prancing Pony and make it through a break in the hedge and off into the fields beyond. I stayed close to Aragorn the first couple of turns to take advantage of his move bonus. There were Nazgul at all the compass points and covering the retreat. Rather than cross over the bridge and bumping into a ringwraith, I opted to dive in the river and cross it

Trojan War, part 4

A little more progress on this project: Here is another comparison picture between various manufacturers of Trojan War figures, with a Victrix hoplite included for scale. This project has been through the wringer in my mind for a long time.  My initial enthusiasm was tempered by the long delivery times for both my Redoubt and Foundry orders, with both companies taking about 12 weeks for

The Bridge of Khazad-Dum and Dumber

As I referred to in the last post, I attended the recent Barrage convention (put on by the HAWKS, a MD based gaming club) two weeks ago. I played Cruel Seas from late afternoon until 5 (see last post) and then squeezed my way into an evening game. I was glad I did. The game was THE BRIDGE AT KHAZAD DUM and the GM was Matt Kirkhart, from somewhere in Maryland. Matt was reenacting a critical sequence from the Fellowship of the Ring, where the Balrog emerges to chase the Fellowship to the Bridge, and Gandalf says his line, and, well, you know.. mumble mumble… Here’s the cool part. He made the miniatures. Pippin Sam Frodo, plus Glowing Sword STING Aragorn Gandalf Pretty cool, huh? These were made with “bits and bobs and craft bits and interesting shapes and a lot of paint”, to paraphrase the creator. The result is a set of miniatures to create a LOTR miniature game that is entirely unique, visually striking and not for sale anywhere! Follow me,

Eyriss: Mage Hunter Commander of Ios

Anyone playing Mercenaries in Warmachine knows of Eyriss, this mage hunter character. This mage-slayer has been a terror to both main and backup casters. Way back when, I painted this model and it has been a staple of any armies since. Well... at least when I played. This version of Eyriss is no longer a member of the Mercenary faction, but has returned to her home among the elves of Ios and of the Retribution. I must admit to preferring the earlier model rather than this newer plastic one. The dynamism is gone.

Ethereal Scarabs: bringers of nothingness

A few years ago, I came up with a series of creatures that really freaked me out. The basic idea came to me as I was thinking about how to tie the FOEniverse together. In the time since I created these horrors, they appeared in more than one adventure since then. Typically accompanied with a "OH CRAP!" The book, Gostor: Ethereal Horrors, is available for sale right now on DrivethruRpg for both 5th Edition or Pathfinder v1. These miniatures are from one of the Reaper Bones set. Feel free to share your story of these great little things.
