Hobby updates - back to ancient and fantasy
Now we have finished playing our Aliens games We are looking forward to playing some Frostgrave second edition and maybe some more Saga games.
At Call to Arms I bought a box of Wargames Atlantic Dark Age Irish. There are 30 warriors and 10 wardogs in a box. I have another box coming with my Frotgrave rules from Northstar so I will have 60 models. I will then have almost enough dogs to make them a threat in our Last Days campaign. Maybe a scenario where you have to escape a horde of zombie dogs while its freezing cold.
I have also been painting my Ancient Greeks. I have been working on some elements of Psoloi, these have slings or Javelins. I also have some Hoplites in progress.
I will use the Arid basing mix I got a while back. The skirmishers have plaster rocks added to their bases to make them a bit more interesting. I have also been making some camp elements. I have some tents, some logs and even a giant roast chicken.
I have assembled the first box of Irish, I have also built some armoured warriors out of some left overs from the Fireforge games models I built for my Pagan Rus. The Irish can also be used for Scots, Welsh and Norse Gael. The Irish will get the swamp basing set. This has some purple colours which will go well with the yellow themed tunics that the Irish we known for.
The Irish warriors are generally armed with Javelins, they have little armour many wear lille more than a long shirt or short dress and have no shoes.
I have a couple of options for Frostgrave warbands. Both are themed on the old show Robin of Sherwood. I have one crew based on the outlaws and one based on the Sheriff of Nottingham
I also have this Troll. You better hope he doesn't break into the girls bathroom.
