Dungeon Saga - The Dragon!

I went for quite a simple colour scheme for the Dungeon Saga Dragon... Kind of an "Ice Dragon" look I think... that way I can use it for Frostgrave too maybe!?
 
 



I magnetised the wings for easier storage...

DUNGEON SAGA - Denizens of the Abyss

I got some more Dungeon Saga miniatures finished off at the weekend... this lot are the Demon baddies from the Abyss....











 

GASLANDS - "Zombie Bash"

The set up at the start of the game...

Carnage!


Last Friday we had a go at the "zombie bash" scenario from the main GASLANDS rule book... we used 30 x 15mm sci-fi miniatures as proxy zombies (10 for each player) ... the scenario was quite good fun, but looked like it could potentially go on forever. Play tested?? The game is supposed to end when the last zombie has been picked up by being run over, but every time a vehicle is wrecked, 5 "zombies" are put back out on the board...this was happening a lot. In the end we just set a time limit on the game and the winner would be the person who had collected the most "zombies" at that point. Lizzy and Kes had equal amounts, so they had a joint win.

Day trip to the Royal Armouries...

Today was the last day of the school holidays (and my last day off work for my 2 week summer holiday)... so for a final day trip I took my son to the Royal Armouries museum in Leeds - It was a great day out - very interesting indeed. They have a huge collection of arms and armour from ancient times up to modern. There really is a lot to see. Personally I found the Ancient and Medieval bits the most interesting.. the more modern stuff not so much, although it was good to see the collection of screen printed CND and Anti-War posters they had from the 1980's.
 

Roman Swords


 
This was the highlight for me - a huge diorama of the Battle of Agincourt using 28mm miniatures (they looked like they might be Perry Miniatures - but not 100% sure on that) - the black rectangles around the edge are periscopes that let you see the battlefield from the miniatures eye level... very cool!!





Some inspiration for a future DBA army??

Big Battle D.B.A.

   Nick and some of the guys at C.O.G.S. invited me over to join in on a four player game of De Bellis Antiquitatis last night. It was Late Persians vs Greeks in 15mm... We played a scaled up version (Big Battle) of D.B.A. on a double sized board with the equivalent of 3 standard D.B.A. armies per side.  The Big Battle rules introduce the demoralisation rule, which was a very interesting addition. Nick and I were the Greeks. It was close, but in the end the Persians won.
