Coming up the other side of the Slump Valley.

Lockdown hasn't been great for my productivity. My annual painting slump appears to have coincided with being stuck in doors for a couple of months. As you can imagine, this was bloody frustrating. However I appear to be clawing my way out of the Slump at long last. The start was forcing myself to complete a little challenge over on Scale creep.

It was fairly simple, paint 5 figures for a Mordheim Warband, but it seems to have kickstarted my painting brain. So much so in fact that I finished another 3 units for my Filibuster project.

Another unit of Mexican Regulares, A canon and crew and a Unit of Militia.
This leaves me with another unit of Militia to do (on it's way from Foundry), a small unit of Cavalry and some officers to complete. My mate Rochie is painting up some Presidial troops for me as well.

Thats what I've completed so far. Once the remaining figures are done I just need to do a bit more scenery (a couple of more buildings, fields and enclosures) and scatter terrain (cacti and rocky outcrops) and the whole game will be ready to roll for Clotted Lard III (which is cancelled because of Covid......bugger)

Blatant Self- Promotion

Just thought I'd let you all know that this months edition of Wargames Soldiers and Strategy (109) has an article written by me all about my North West Frontier Chain of Command game so get your back sides down to the shops (or order from the internet if you are still isolating) and grab yourself a copy! https://www.karwansaraypublishers.com/wss-mag

An Adobe house - Nothing fancy!

 I bought some Adobe houses from a seller on Ebay and decided to put together the first one and paint it up before I tackle tarting up the others.

Lockdown catch up

I've been a busy little bee at the painting table over the last couple of weeks. It's just taken me a while to get everything photographed.

A bit of Solo Stormbringer

During this period of self isolation, opportunities for games are obviously very slim. So i thought I'd give you another piece of ancient Stormbringer fun. This time it's a solo adventure from issue 21 of Different Worlds magazine in 1982 written by the great Ken St.Andre. I don't think there is much more I need to say apart from, have fun!

The Colonel escapes.........

Col. CliffordT. Twyford and his escape from the Mexican Authorities
 This weeks work on the Filibusters project amounts to one mounted Leader for the Filibusters, 2 more groups of 8 Mexican Regulares and a ruined house.

Filibusting at the seams.

During these bizarre times, stuck in the house, climbing the walls, trying to figure out what the difference between a subjunctive and conjunctive verb is, everybody needs a project to keep them sane. So on Monday I started mine. This one has actually been in the post for quite a while but I finally got off my bahookie and got started. So this is going to be a Sharp Practice project based around the Filibustering movement that took hold of certain parts of America between the Mexican-American war and the American civil war.

Take me to Limes one more time!!

So with the threat of a brand new set of rules from the TooFatLardies on the horizon, I figured I needed to get the brush out and do some work!

Pointless Anthropology - Gnomes!


Bearded, grumpy little dudes that spend most of their time underground.

What does it say about Gnomes in the new rulebook.......erm.....nothing. What the hell? Gnomes aren't in WFRP? What about the old one..... they are in WFRP but theres no way of playing them as PC's WTF! Am I imagining it? Are Gnomes not a thing in Warhammer?

How Mortal Realms helped with my Grey Hair.....

Some of you will look at the picture of the latest bunch of figures from a GW mag and immediatly click away, but wait.....this is important....

You may been made aware of a part work magazine doing the rounds from Games Workshop. It's called Mortal Realms and is cheap as chips and comes with a heap of miniatures, dice, rules and bases. You might have tripped over piles of them down your local newsagent as you were picking up a back of Monster Munch. You might have seen the doom laden advert on the telly and been momentarily distracted while doing the ironing. You may even have seen people on the interwebs mentioning that mistakes were made and they bought a copy. To be fair I can't blame folk for picking up a copy of two. I bought one and I might buy a couple more. It's £2.99 and it comes with 13 figures, it's almost rude not to.
