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.
Nice mix. There seem to be a lot of S range Minifigs appearing on ebay at the moment (I am resisting). The Woods is a very original system. Took me a bit of getting used to, but the vibe and figures are excellent. I'll be buying the second ed.ReplyDelete
I have the second edition on order. The S range ones on ebay are sadly not late Romans or Palmyrans so I can resist a little easier.ReplyDelete
Lots of interesting figures and projects there , interested in hearing how the new Osprey rules work .ReplyDelete
Have you plans for them?Delete
The inter-war figures look superb.ReplyDelete
I look forward to my first game... soon I hope.Delete
Great selection of figures and I like your buildings very much.ReplyDelete
Thanks,simple to do, great fun too and in keeping with the figures.Delete
It all looks and sounds good to me.ReplyDelete
Everything is looking good. I am curious about how you get along with the Rebels rules; I have yet to use M&T.ReplyDelete
Will let you know. Maybe it’s me regarding M @ T, it is certainly worth a go,. We have persevered with it but ...ReplyDelete
A lot of irons in the fire there old chap. Your wallet won’t thank me - but a little birdie tells me that Andrew at Replica Toy Soldiers has a new range of Great War and later stuff.ReplyDelete
We've played M&T quite a bit and are enjoying it, the small Indian units are fragile but can be very effective. If you do decide you've had enough of it you shouldn't have any trouble off loading it on BGG or ebay, unless they ever do get round to producing a second edition.ReplyDelete
