The first of the Saxons...


Yep it happened to me I told a few posts back, at the Poldercon I was converted to play Dux Britanniarum, a game by TooFatLardies. It's great fun and rather elegant in it's simplicity. At the Poldercon Peter, the gentleman doing the demo, kindly provided us with a free Gripping Beast plastic Dark Age warriors sprue and 4 of the miniatures from this have now been painted as my Saxon Missile troops (with slings).

As usually happens I have now ample figures in both plastic and metal, to start 3 armies for my new Dark Ages project. These are Northmen (Vikings), Saxons and Carolingians. More on my plans later, for now just take a look at these and let me know what you think.

Last AHPC Theme Round!

Hoi there!

The final theme round of the AHPC is live now. The theme for this bonus round is "Gamblers and Risk Takers".

The most evident character that fits this bill would be the famous Scoundrel Han Solo, but since I already entered him last year I chose to go with Lando for this round. As it happens this is a lucky coincidence since Stefan entered a brilliant rendition of Han as his entry. So now the two of them join the ranks of great gamblers.

Go over here and cast a vote on your favourite entry!
