Just played… Hail Caesar

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

Project log: Really Small Persians, part II

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

Project log: Really small Persians

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!

First impressions: Altar of Freedom

Updates around here are far and few between these days, as I’m still a bit occupied on the domestic/wage earning front and don’t really have time for important stuff like playing with toy soldiers. But this doesn’t mean that my thoughts ever stray very far from future glory on minuscule battlefields. Quite the contrary in fact – the… Continue reading First impressions: Altar of Freedom

Project log: Really small civilians

Since the latest recruit to my family ranks arrived, I’ve obviously been a bit occupied with non-hobby related things. But I’ve still managed to sneak in a bit of nerdiness here and there, in spite of an overall focus on combining full time work with diaper changing, sleepless nights and the general joy and exhaustion… Continue reading Project log: Really small civilians

Just played… Sword & Spear

So we had another game of Sword & Spear at club the other week. This time I had lured Jeppan and Tomas into re-creating the battle of Stratus in 429 BC, which was a part of the Spartan campaign in Acarnania (a conflict also known as the Acarnanian War). The main purpose of this game… Continue reading Just played… Sword & Spear
