In between turkey and wine, I have snuck in painting up a few more Malifaux models over the past 2 weeks.
A lot of these are proxies from Black Scorpion.
If you woke up this Christmas morning and found that Santa had brought you all of the wargaming goodies that you wanted, congratulations!
One of the most inept yet strangely effective armies in my inventory makes a return in a 500AP FoGR Doubles competition, as the Pirates sail into view yet again.
Marvel at the depth plumbed by the puns, shake in fear at the assault of poor jokes and fall asleep counting the number of times the men say "arrr!" as the Pirates engage in 4 games of hand to hand fighting and general bloodthirsty carnage in which the lowest percentage of casualties suffered by any of the combatants in any game hovers around the 45% mark....
I've just updated the 15mm Suppliers listings for the Corvus Belli range, after the manufacturer suspended production "indefinitely" in Autumn 2014.
Vexillia have now bought up the entire current stock of 15mm ancient and medieval ranges from the manufacturer in Spain, so what Martin has in store is all that is left in the world basically.
The ranges cover/covered Marian & Imperial Rome and some related armies such as Spanish, Numidians, Kappadocians, Carthaginians as well as a well regarded 100YW range. The figures are sold in packs of 8, with 6-8 variants per pack that are compatible with Essex in size but can sometimes be touch more chubby and short - but also have a more variety and character.
We've all done it, right? picked up some nice-looking models with one aim in mind, and ended up going off on a tangent that may end up being a new ruleset, army and scale?
Well, at Warfare this year I picked up some spider drones from GZG to see if they would work as unusual mechanical spiders for my Ramos Crew for Malifaux, plus a couple of walker drones to cannibalize and make a Mobile Toolkit for the same crew.
However, having scratchbuilt/modded the Mobile Toolkit fairly successfully, I had a couple of spare walkers and I was also a little unconvinced by the Spider Drones - they were just a bit too big really for the look I wanted. One of them is going to end up becoming a Brass Arachnid for Ramos (as it only seems to be available in a box set and I already have all of the other figures in it) but that left 5 spare ones.
So, the idea of having some NATO and WARPAC walkers to add to my Cold War Commander armies started to crystallize... sort of a "Weird World War III" thing going on, or possibly more realistically a gateway drug to 6mm Sci-Fi gaming. A bit of discussion with the ever helpful folks on the BKC/CWC Forum later and the idea started to take shape...
Anyways, these are the initial results:
This time it's another usually rubbish army, the Galatians, who take on an enemy Carthaginian army in a very short battle report that features a really good curry.
In a new departure for this site, here's a link to a YouTube video I managed to create in which I do a very bad job of playing Slitherine's new Renaissance video game based on FoG:R, Pike & Shot.
You can see it on YouTube here.
Here also are a couple of screen-grabs of the YouTube video of the game.
The Worlds in Germany - a brave Swedish army sails on a sea of beer and model railway fetishism towards a date with dice, destiny and pork-based catering products by the side of the Rhine in not-that-sunny Koblenz
The end result is 6 full match reports containing a full suite of the internet's entire content of German comedy video interludes, and some intriguing analysis from Renaissance Hannibal and the much-loved Princess of Sweden.
