Shamblers Kickstarter

Toad King Castings are running a small Kickstarter to fund their Shamblers figures. These look great, and although I don't rpg anymore (they are apparently a classic D&D monster) I think I can find uses for them - random monsters in wilderness games, warband members in Woodland warbands just off the top of my head.

I backed their first KS which seemlessly brought some Giant toads to the pile, so I have now worries about this one.

8 days to go and funded!

Wild West Work

Look like I've some building to be getting on with! A fine addition to my Wild West mining setup. It'll get painted up at the same time as my TT Combat W.W. town.

New Barbarians

The first reinforcements have arrived for my Barbarian warband. Alternative Armies skyclad Celt and two Dwarven Barbarians (Male and Female) from Ral Partha Europe's recent Dwarf kickstarter (available now on their site)

As 2 dwarves in a human warband I decided that these two are a couple, an idea completely influenced\stolen from Stan Nicholl's "Orcs: Bad Blood" series. In "Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes" this takes the form of them both having the trait "bonded", meaning that as long as they are in base to base contact they activate at the same time. It gives the chance of a wee side battle narrative.

Heave Awa Lads I'm no deid yet

Now that I've paraphrased the standard returning blogger phrase we can continue. ( Heave Awa Lads I'm no deid yet is from an engraving on Edinburgh's Royal Mile, by the way)

my Barbarian makes away with some much needed
loot in my first club Frostgrave game.
