Natal Native Contingent

A little kick start of my own, a return to the Anglo-Zulu War. Warlord Games 28mm plastic Natal Native Contingent. I have a plan for a scenario based around the death of Prince Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, to be played using The Men Who Would be King rules. I have purchased all the figures needed and am in the process of painting them up for the game.

Kickstarter - Freyja's Wrath

Just a quick post, tonight at 18:00 (GMT) Bad Squiddo Games have their next Kickstarter happening.  This time we're offered more Shieldmaidens, Beavers, Moose and Norse Goddesses! There is a particularly lovely Seer model sculpted by the talented Shane Hoyle. All this and ravens too, might be worth adding something interesting to your Viking war bands, I'm thinking of using some models in Dragon Rampant as well as RPG settings.

Early Saxon Warlord

It's been a while, well what seems like a very long time for me since I last posted, and so a very belated Happy New Year!

To resume posting I thought I'd offer up an Early Saxon Warlord that I've painted up with the intention of leading the invasion forces for SAGA and Dux Britanniarum by Too Fat Lardies. These figures are 28mm from the superb Footsore Miniatures range which are a real pleasure to paint. The flag is from Little Big Man Studios

The traditional New Year reflection has seen me look at my wargaming collection with a critical eye.  Looking back over my blog posts it has become apparent that a number of projects have stuttered and my main interest of 18th Century has suffered. In addition I have started another army as part of a joint project with the newly formed club (more of this in another post). I have come to the conclusion that I may have bitten off more than I can chew, quite a common complaint I hear you say! I have slowly been sorting out and selling off parts of the collection in an attempt to rationalise, some it hasn't even reached the page of the blog! 

One project that I'm contemplating selling off is the Crimean War Russians. I'm still mulling this over. If anyone is interested in acquiring these figures please drop me a line, it might just tip me over the edge!
