Currently on the table...

 I have another X-wing batrep up for those who are interested.


 While on the painting desk, i have been preparing for "Frostgrave". I have had some practice games and find the game great fun for a basic campaign based system.

Skeletons for some random encounters... they are the wargames factory skeletons and they aren't bad!

Warhound... acquired from my Mordheim collection.

Thug!.. made from a plastic Gripping Beast dark age warrior.

Battles 1066 Part 1

Well we finally started getting our 1066 games in, though we only got our first game in: The Battle of Stamford Bridge.


  We mange to play this 3 vs 3 game in 5 hours, though we took our time and had a great relaxed game, with a lot of laughs and tea. The game itself wasn't tested prior, so it was lucky it all worked out well, and turned out to be a fun and challenging scenario.




  Now i can concentrate on my tutorials, as well as starting up "Frostgrave"


Final thoughts.. recently it had been my birthday and had to share a picture of the cake my family made for me.. awesome.

"Ewoks!"

Some more reports...

Busy, busy, busy... a hectic couple of weeks means i have a stack of reports to get up. Still painting normans with little over a week to go! But slowly things do seem to be coming together.

Star Wars X-Wing. Being played on newly made MDF board that i painted. Although a 3'x4' i have marked some special stars that are aligned  to give a 3'x3' playing area.

Strangely i am back to Kings of War once again, and i did try not to rant!
