Some 28mm terrain

I noticed I was a bit short on interior terrain when I laid out the Joker's lair awhile back. Specifically, I had no beds and few tables. After looking online and humming and hawing, I ordered a tavern pack of 3-D printed terrain. It came with a pretty decent selection of beds, tables, chairs, and fireplaces. Being mostly wood, it was also very quick to paint up. For $35, I though it was a pretty good deal. The only real defect is the horizontal seam on the end of the foot boards. While these have a real D&D vibe, I think they could work pretty much for any time period. The wrinkles o ..read more

Last of the Crimean!

And I've finally reached the end of the 28mm Crimean armies. Whew! There were five command figures for the Russian dragoons plus four more troopers. So many horses.... But the command figures were quite nice. Up next: Who knows? Maybe some 28mm furniture ..read more

Second-last post on this Crimean project with a group of Russian dragoons.  These are 28mm Foundry sculpts. Nice enough detail. There were just a lot of them! Up next: More dragoons ..read more

Hawkins Ford

Bruce popped over for a game this week. I was keen to get my War of 1812 plastics out for a spin so I dusted off Rebels and Patriots (part of the Osprey Rampant series). It looks like we'd last played these rules in 2019 with the Battles of Pork Rind and Baby Duck Ridge. I decided to play Hawkins Ford, which is a bit of a cheesie race scenario as the British defend a key river crossing against a superior American force. The Americans had three line units, two half-sized skirmishers, a light cannon, some dragoons, and a leader. They started in the top left (by the white dice) and needs to cap ..read more

Hussar Lancers

 Just a quick update today with these six Russian Hussar Lancers from Foundry's 28mm Crimea range. There were just six of the guys and three were a command unit. Happy to be done them. Just a few Dragoons left to go! Up next: Some of the Dragoons, I think. Maybe also some terrain. Thinking about taking break from posting for the summer to concentrate on kayaking and gardening. We'll see what happens ..read more

Fistful of Lead Batman, Game 4 Finale

Alright, a few weeks late but here is the last instalment off my initial foray into adapting Fistful of Lead for low-powered supers. In addition to bringing this mini-campaign to a thematically appropriate conclusion, I wanted to do something indoors, using the Mageknight dungeon terrain I've been collecting. And I wanted to see if it was possible to break Fistful of Lead using a min-max strategy. Consequently, I give you the Joker's Lair. Highlights include the main doorway at the bottom right. At the bottom left is a secret alternate doorway (requiring a task roll to be found). Middle lef ..read more

More colonials

A long time ago, I bought some metal Cylons. And then I successfully supplemented them with some plastic 3-D prints. I also had some metal Colonial warriors and bridge crew. To fill out their numbers, I bought some 3-D prints on Etsy. Overall, these were pretty good for digital sculpts (the hair is a bit lame). There are 10 poses with bit of variety. They painted up well enough and could easily be used as new recruits or generic grunts. They give me quit a mess of Colonials and I should be able to run games using skirmish or gang-level rules (I'll probably try these with a Fistful of Lead ..read more

Crimean Cossacks

As I slowly work my way through the last of Crimean figures, I finished off some 28mm Foundry Cossacks with lances. Nice models. I experimented some with building up washes to get a nice dark colour that did not absorb all of the light. These turned out okay. I wonder if the lances need pendants? The command group was nice enough. Up next: Russian Hussar lancers, some 28mm colonial warriors, and some random Batman villains are all in various stages of painting.  ..read more

Fistful of Lead Batman, Game 3

So, picking up the storyline in this series of linked scenarios, the Joker had destroyed enough of Gotham's communication infrastructure that he was able to kidnap Commission Gordon! Unfortunately, during the dust-up, Joker was seriously injured and had to sit out a game, as did Green Arrow.  I wanted to see how well the game played with four players as well as use some of my outdoorsy terrain so the scenario is that the Joker's gang has to get Commissioner Gordon from the far corner of the table to the near corner, and then into the Joker's liar. This requires going through Gotham woods ..read more

A month or so back, Bruce introduced me to Fistful of Lead, a quickly set of rules for the old west. We had a very good time with the rules and I wondered if they could be adapted to low-powered superheroes. I finally got around to buying the core rule book as a pdf from Wiley Games and then pointed out some character cards (I tried to upload them, but blogger freaked out). I use the bank robbery scenario in the book and pointed up two five-person teams. The Joker had Harlequin, some regulars, some grunts and also picked up two more regulars as a result of a team trait. He had to get fi ..read more
