Kill Team Updates Killing Time – One Year On

Let's hope that Kill Team doesn't forget that it's supposed to be welcoming. It should act as an open door into the hobby for new players and not an overtly-intricate and daunting cast iron gate. [...] The post Kill Team Updates Killing Time – One Year On appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.

Training Day II

A pleasant evening to head out to the club last night, I jumped into another Black Powder game so that Julian and Rob could hone their skills before Glasgow, I once again took charge of part of the French Guard. A simple table with the Allies ensconced behind a wall of hedges while we attempted to move them.Julian was in the middle and Andy took our left, I had the right and sent my men forward slowly, I wanted to play my artillery on the enemy before charging home, this plan seemed to be working fine and cannonballs crashed into a large British battalion opposite me. The cannon fire was so good the British sent a small unit of skirmishers to harry my gunners but it did them no good as they fell victims to grapeshot. I was just about ready to carry out my plan when another French battalion on my left masked my guns leaving them with no targets except some British guns on a hill, not who I wanted to shoot at. No matter, I charged regardless, in Black Powder you can only fight one on one unless the units are sm

The War Wagon

The finished War wagon in profileThe original wagon from which the war wagon is constructed. All that was used was the flat bed and wheels.I had this idea in my head to build a centre piece for the Ottoman wagonburg. I wanted a something practical but distinctive and I gained a lot of valuable experience arsing around with the twelve defensive pieces built for the wagonburg circumference.The finished wagon. Not from a written plan but from a process of evolving ideas.The centre piece was going to be a one off and I decided to pimp it up a bit with bits and bobs. The first thing was to raise the deck above the level of the back wheels. I did this by placing balsa rods along the flatbed with a height of circa 20mm which allowed me to build the deck out again but over the top level of the large back wheels.Some of the additional pimping visible in this shot. The hay is dry brushed static grass added to the hay net metal partStraight sides were the most practical option as it allowed models to stand directly agai

Ramblings

No club again this week, I had/volunteered to accompany the boss to a meeting at a local hospital, in between speakers the nurse made us all stand up and do some stretching etc., I hadn't signed up for physical abuse. Why is it that most speakers, despite their in depth knowledge of a subject, put you to sleep, I have been following several such on military matters on YouTube and I just give up the will to breathe.I have not mentioned the entertainment world in an age, mainly because I went through a patch where there was nothing to watch, then all of a sudden several shows turned up which I had been following, this sadly did not do me any good. "Van Helsing", nonsense about vampires obviously, this is now too ludicrous to watch, the same fate has befallen "Zombie Nation", I know it sounds daft but both programmes have lost the plot. In my defence these were 'to paint by' programmes, I would not actually sit down and watch one on its own. I did enjoy 'Curfew' and another dystopian piece 'Black Summer' the lat

New Ottoman special packs

Here are some pictures of future releases for our Ottoman Turkish range.The first piece is a lovely vignette of a Janissary Cauldron party. For those unfamiliar with this tradition the 'cooking pot' was more precious to Janissary units than any flag. Many of their senior officers had titles relating to posts from the kitchen such as the Soup Maker, the Scullion, the Chef and the Baker. The hearth was seen as at the centre of the Janissary Corps hence this being a centre piece for Janissary units.The second is a previously previewed set of officers for various units in dress less formal than that worn by Janissaries. These would fit well in many units over a wide period from the 1600s to the mid 1700s.

The Loft Full Of Lead

It may not look like it, but I had a tidy up in the Loft Full Of Lead. I have been determined to get rid of some old stuff, but I am a terrible hoarder. I did make some progress and manged to fill a couple of boxes of crap to go to the skip. Last week, I even took some boxes of old terrain up to my games club, they have a nice large room to keeping terrain and the old ruins I had would at least get used now and then. There is still loads more clearing out to do and it will likely take a while yet…
