I thought I would share some pics of some commissions I've done for a friend of mine. These guys are pretty fun and couldn't come at a better time as my Fiancee and I have begun taking Kung Fu classes. Miniatures are by Rattrap Productions.
Here is the finished product of the Bell over the Well to Hell that I had posted on earlier. In the foreground you can see the jade mummy brought back from the land of shadows, now animated by the bound spirit of the demon known as Kong Fang!
I started out as a Secutor fighting Ferrus (Keith) who was a Retiarius. After plotting our moves Keith and I rolled off using a d10 with the Initiative modifiers to determine Initiative. Ferrus who was lightly geared continued to win and go first through out the match. I tried to close quickly but Ferrus constantly outmaneuvered me dealing ranged blows with both the rete and his fuscina. When I did manage to close Ferrus managed to defend my untargeted attack and followed up by netting me. Before he could finish me I sought Missio, but none was to be found from the bloodthirsty crowds who called for my end!
Meanwhile at the other table Rob and Bryan squared off as Hoplomahus vs Myrmillo with both working to cut a corner on the other. Rob threw his hasta only to miss and successfully recovered it. In the end Bryan won the match and moved to face Keith in the Mongodrome!
Chris fought Al as Hoplomachus vs Myrmillo and Chris pulled out a victory.
Keith played a Thraex against Bryans Provocator and again Keith did a lot of maneuvering but in the end Bryan lined up and caught him good and square. Now the finals.
Bryan vs Chris in the Robodrome which is a smaller arena meant to look like a banquet hall. Both players fought as Dimachaerii making it a brutal fight. To make things interesting we also threw in a ref. The player who lost initiative got to move the ref 1 hex in any direction before the players got to move making him a blocking tool. Chris came out fast and boxed Bryan into a corner as both swung into each other with their double gladii. In the end Bryan fell leaving Pugnax (Chris) the Champion of the tournament. Hail PUGNAX!
Had a great time, we ran about 3 games per player in about 3 hours. Definitely want to run it again and at a convention as well.
Got together with Mongo and some good friends last weekend and hacked our way through a game of Last Night On Earth. Good stuff!
I played a Drifter in the game and found myself fighting off the undead in a hospital. Luckily sheriff Todd was there and handed me a pistol to defend against the undead onslaught. Our mission was to destroy a mansion in the center of the table so we had to find gas and fire to burn down four spots. All together there were 8 of us playing, 6 heroes and 2 players running the zombies
In the end I wound up surrounded by zombies in a space doused with gas slowly bleeding out and ended up immolating myself to destroy one of spawn points in the mansion. See kids, Drifters aren't so bad.
Lots of fun, love the games by this company and I'm picky when it comes to boardgames.
Well I've gotten all of my Battle Honors Winter War Russians painted and thought I would share.
I got a supported platoon done, 3 rifle squads with command plus a mortar team, Maxim Hmg team and an ATR team. I still need to finish a few details, a banner for the flag bearer and I had to rebase my Hmg team (don't ask!).
Beyond that, it's down to some vehicles from force of arms and some scratch terrain that will be in future posts.
I'm still waiting on Finns from the venerable Master Stine as he is to play the opposing force. I think we plan to do a mix of some large platoon size Disposable Heroes games as well as some smaller Point Blank squad based games. The book FUTILE GALLANTRY from Iron Ivan Games covers the Finns for the period and I'm using URRAH! to cover the Russians.
