What we play now..
Hopefully have cracked the photo problem,fingers crossed
I have fallen for these old school ancients ( Minifigs S Range?) and their painting style/ detail/brown wash. I would like to add some more compatible S Range Romans and Palmyrans. Rules used are the ancient ones in Developing the Portable Wargame.
The interwar in 54mm project moves forward nicely and am awaiting some replacement heads with tin hat to complete things. I really enjoy restoring the old toy soldiers and getting them ready for battle again.
The forces of Albion and her Great Queen are moving forward well too. Their opponents from the frontiers of Albion take shape too-
Rules will be Ross McF's on a gridded cloth.
I have been making some scenery ( in true H G Wells style) out of Belvita boxes-
pictured here with 54mm figures for scale. I think they capture the Little Wars feeling well.
Finally I have become interested lately in "The Woods" by Oakbound Studio which are dark age folklore fantasy. They are an interesting diceless system and the company makes some splendid models. The second edition of the rules is to be unveiled at Salute and is currently available to pre order at a reduced price. They are most intriguing and have a sort of Brian Froud vibe as well as traditional celtic/british folkloric elements.
