Some Napoleonic Bigger Battles

More eye candy today, but from a historical perspective. These are from a mix of manufacturers. They are also from a variety of games.  All of these were played using Wiley Games’ Fistful of Lead: Bigger Battles.  Although it uses a lot more figures, something about it makes it...

The Xebec

This one is another probable out-of-print ship from Old Glory. I found this little cutie languishing on a shelf in the basement of a game store. Originally produced by Merrimack Miniatures and had probably sat there for 30+ years. Well, it us hitting the table now, as the starting...

Fifteen Mil on a Deadman’s Chest

Old Glory USA sells this 14-gun pirate brigantine, and you can get one here. The one I got was of middling quality. The portholes required extensive flash trimming, and the prow figure is riddled with bubbles. Still, it is a yuge piece, and should get me one step closer...

The Littlest Big Igloo

Back in the day, at the height of the Cold War, cloak and dagger battles were deadly earnest affairs, with only the rare example of a Get Smart to lighten the mood.  Today is no different, with the added frisson of a clandestine asymmetric war waged by entrenched forces...

Cha’alt 28

The Blackraven action has shifted to the alien planet of space weirdos some call Cha’alt.  And that means it is time for some eye-candy.  Here we see the Cult of the Spicy Wyrm, ambushed by the ragtag band on the right.  For some reason, Cobalt-15 brought the MSB along...

Utility Terrain

Final shots of some utilitarian terrain. The lumber here is coffee stirrers liberated from the local coffee shop eating on a bed of popsicle sticks and lies.  ...

The Very Model of A Modern Wargame General

 The modern table continues to take shape. A bit of screen, a bit of scrap wood, and a bit of sand… And you’ve got some nice tall fences. I’m not crazy about these fences.  I should have oriented the screen diagonally to make a diamond pattern, and the cloth...

Painted Desert, But Not the Real One

 It is done.  A full table of desert terrain. Primed and ready for color But not too much color – it is a desert after all. Chicken Joe showing off some big rocks. A small camp near the dunes and columns. Hiding behind a small dune. Deep in the...

More Vendeean Eye Candy

Been playing around with Osprey’s En Garde! while waiting for the Big Battalions package to arrive, and it’s been nice to fiddle with a new ruleset and some blackpowder scenarios.  My fantasy town works well as a backdrop if I leave off the wizard tower and skull mountain pieces....

Eye Candy

Not a lot to say here.  I snatched a bunch of screencaps from recent videos posted up at the YouTube channel, Joy of Wargaming.  Full battle reports are available there.  For those who lack the patience for such things, here’s a brief rundown of the action so far, with...
