A scale comparison and a bargain

A few days ago I sent off for some 1/48 scale Dolls furniture to see if it worked with my 28mm figures. It was cheap-£ 1.90 for the furniture in the photo and some other wee bits and bobs.It is plastic. Here it is with a Front Rank chap for comparison-
The furniture is as straight from the pack.I am delighted with my purchases and would recommend them most highly.What do you think?

A letter from an inn near the frozen city

Dear Uncle Bert
Just back at the Inn.What a day.Erik the wizard decided to check out this creepy mausoleum today. After a grumble or ten we tagged along. Rolfe and me were hurt but are ok. Fog everywhere couldn't see a thing.Few of our shots were successful. Poor Arold was in the wars again but lived to tell another tale. Tarragon our ranger,who has just joined us fought well and has some scars to add to his collection I'll say. What with skeletons swarming everywhere and a nasty demon in a bottle thrown at us we were lucky to make it back with two piles of treasure.Erik added another magic book to his growing collection. Poor Cassie our hound was badly hurt and will need to rest at the Inn the next time we visit the frozen city. Must close now as my crow in a basket is getting cold.
Your humble nephew
Another enjoyable game,thanks Richard.

Over the hills and far away

The creature and it's captors have now made it through Umstrittental and over the mountains into The Empire,they are almost at their journey's end.
Across the drawbridge they go to the heart of Schloss Schadenfreude. The Archduke is waiting...
Days later the creature is trying to get used to it's new home but all is cold ,shadow covered and stone.Little comfort for one as rare as he.

May Day

A Merry May Day to you and yours from all of us here in the Duchy of Tradgardlard!

Have a great day!

Judging a book by it's cover

Whilst looking for fantasy rules online I saw this-

and was really taken by the image. I read more and decided to buy the softback copy. It arrived today and is an interesting read. I believe it is a Neo Clone ( don't ask ,beyond me too) of the original D & D rules.
