I’ve not been particularly busy on the miniatures side of things lately – since my spare time is still very limited nowadays, I’ve just not been able to get any serious painting done. And it’s weird, but when I’m not painting I find it hard to muster any great enthusiasm for putting minis on the… Continue reading First impressions: Cuba Libre
Just after I’d finished my latest batch of Persians, Johan came over to my house for some ancients action. We used the Hail Caesar rules, and pitched the freshly raised Persians against my Greek veterans in an imaginary battle during the Greco-Persian Wars. Not only was it satisfying to bring my new 6mm lads to… Continue reading Just played… Hail Caesar
I’ve finally managed to get some more Persians off the painting table, which is a relief. Together with my previous batch, these wee lads will provide me with a decent-sized contingent for use in smaller battles against my Greeks. I still have a long way to go before I’ve got a “complete” Persian army, but… Continue reading Project log: Really Small Persians, part II
A couple of weeks back, me, Ulf and Andy met up for a game of To the Strongest! This was the first game of a new campaign of ours (however, all credit goes to Ulf for designing the campaign mechanics), inspired by the Byzantine-Bulgarian wars and played out on our brand spanking new TtS! gaming… Continue reading Just played… To the Strongest!
Me, Ulf and Andy met up at club the other day for a game of Liber Militum Tercios. This game, which I must admit has slipped under my radar completely up until Andy pitched it at club recently, looks to be a rather interesting take on the Thirty Years War. It is produced by a… Continue reading Just played… Liber Militum Tercios
As per usual these days, I’ve been fairly busy lately. But weirdly enough the odd project has still managed to sneak off the painting table – most recently a Frostgrave Warband. Now I’ve only played this game once, but I had so much fun that I just had to build me a dedicated bunch of… Continue reading Project Log: Frostgrave Necromancer Warband
Lots of To the Strongest! going on here lately – it’s actually the only game that I’ve played during the last weeks. Partially because it’s a fun game of course, but also due to time restrictions and a generally busy life outside of the hobby. * This time Ulf and me met up for the… Continue reading Just played… To the Strongest!
As the domestic dust slowly settles after my second child’s arrival a couple of months ago, I’m finally getting into old habits when it comes to painting and modelling. A relief, no doubt – especially since I’m way behind schedule on some of my major projects. The most major of these undertakings is undeniably the… Continue reading Project log: Really small Persians
A couple of days ago Johan came over to my house for a few beers and a game of To the Strongest! I had recently finished a couple of additions to my 6mm Greek army that I was keen on getting to the table, so we played a Peloponnesian War scenario: the battle of Stratus in… Continue reading Just played… To the Strongest!
Me and Ulf met up at club the other day for a game of To the Strongest! Our last game was very enjoyable, but some question marks remained, mainly regarding shooting and ranged combat. Consequently, we both shared a desire to try out this aspect of the game in earnest. So, this time we went “all… Continue reading Just played… To the Strongest!
