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

Just played… To the Strongest!

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!

Just played… The Pikeman’s Lament

The autumn of 1625 was a long one in Livonia – at least if our Pikeman’s Lament campaign is anything to go by. The first snowfall hasn’t even arrived yet, but the Polish-Swedish conflict is already at its sixth installment as the seemingly tireless combatants continue to fight it out. After their recent glorious victory, the Poles have decided that… Continue reading Just played… The Pikeman’s Lament
