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.

15mm Skirmish Supplies is open for business.

I realise that all has been very quite here for the last months. There have been a few reasons for that but here is one of them!

I am glad to say that my new venture ,15mm Skirmish Supplies, is now open for business. The product list has been tailored for Skirmish wargamers. So more different poses for your figures. No wasting money on boxes of unwanted spares. A single place with many options.
At the moment we have Ral Partha's Demonworld in for Fantasy and Blue Moon Manufacturing Sci-Fi squads. We have also some Gothic Horror and World War II sets. Finally (for the moment) Amera provide affordable terrain options. More ranges will be coming in the future,

On a Wee Blokes note, things are starting to clear now, so whilst there may be a slight tweak in posts, I'll be looking to adding to the static on the information super highway again on a regular basis.

January's Testing Out of Rogue Stars

Time has been at a premium this month, for reasons that I shall cover in another post, so I'll just have to quickly summarise some of the sessions over the last few weeks.

Rogue Stars was released in December, so it was inevitable (and keenly anticipated) that the rules would be run through after the Seasonal Festivities had died down.

Infinity Neon Lotus Scenery Pack

With Rogue Stars coming out in December my thoughts have part wandered towards Sci-fi gaming. For the game I have enough painted figures to put together a force or two, but terrain was slightly different. I wanted a change from the Industrial\Necromunda style and was presuming that the clean Infinity look was where I'd bee heading until someone on the Rogue Stars Facebook page shared the Infinity Neon Lotus Scenery Pack. For me this tied into the oriental feel that Blade Runner cultured and I knew it was a must buy. Especially as it costs around £8. And with Christmas conveniently approaching, well you can guess the rest!
