A 2mm Primer

With three full armies of these tiny little blokes under my belt, I’m finally ready to share some experience with you, dear reader.  By no means an expert, the best I can offer is my experience working with this incredibly small scale. First up, when you spray coat them,...

Back to the History Books

Behold, the first teaser image of the Totally Not the Austrian faction for the Wars of the Trossian Succession. Horse, foot, and guns. It feels darn good to jump back into the historical saddle after a too long hiatus.  Yeah yeah, imagi-nations are barely historical but whatever.  Let me...

Irregular Army Packs

Bust my buttons, I’d done all my planning for Napoleonic wargaming, then went and ordered Seven Years War figures like a complete and utter plank! No worries.  My next big project is a campaign set in the imagi-nation of the Trossian Empire, specifically to help account for my own...

The Wars of the Trossian Succession

Got a new blog that you might be interested in checking out: The Wars of the Trossian Succession. As mentioned in an earlier post, my current big project involves a bit of the old toe dipping into Napoleonics.  And by toe-dipping, I mean taking a headlong plunge from the...

My Dream Game – Early Stages and Advice Needed

I’m looking to recruit a few friends to play national leaders and strategic commanders of a continental scale game.  I’m getting into horse and musket for the first time ever, and it’s long been a dream of mine to play an actual campaign with more depth than a narrative...

The Necromancer War, Chapter 3

When last we left the on-going saga of the Necromancer King’s attempt to add the Targar Empire to his domain, Lady Hotfor M’Motherson successfully routed a flanking force of the Necromancer King.  Seeing an opportunity to deliver a smashing blow to the dark lord’s forces, she quickly rounded up...

The Necromancer War, Chapter 2

When last we left the good people of the Targan Empire, their border towns and forts had been over-run by a sudden invasion of the dark forces of the nearby kingdom of the Necromancer King.  The Patriarch of the Empire, High King Sisterbanger, quickly dispatched a small delaying force...

Tyranny of Dragons, Session 13 – The City of Splendours

Again, this is a summary of a session in which your humble blogger did not participate.  For those following the story, these notes are cribbed from those of the DM. The chapter begins deep within the heart of the great northern city of Waterdeep. The party was residing at...
