(Not done painting yet.)

They fit diagonally on a 40x40, but just barely. Not too fond of this look. So I think it's going to be the 40x60. The extra depth shouldn't cause a problem in most games I will play, and if I get more handgunners, then I can use the swivel guns as light artillery, at which point the base size shouldn't matter.

The longer base looks better. I've mounted my Empire Hakenbüchse on 40 x 50 bases.

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

Agreed, go with 40x60. Leaves more space for atmoshpere-setting doodads too.

I'm sold. Still might add some more detail to the base.

They look great - but like they belong as a light artillery support unit alongside another unit.

Invent your own rules - or use the similar rules skaven had for their version ( jezzails ?)

Or oldschool chaos dwarf swivel guns...



There's more to the rules on another page, but the important parts are that they hit 1+2(d6) models and have a firing arc of 180. No move and fire, no march.

For now, I'll be trying them out in non-WFB rules, though.

Ah, from the original and best Warhammer Armies book!

No game balance, but lots of character and nice ideas in that one.

Oh yeah, I had a pair of those back in 3rd ed. and with a bit of luck, they could wipe out a unit in one round of shots. With a short range, though, they would need that as they would be lucky to get a second round of shots. Still a good deal at 50pts each!



I've really been itching for a game of some sort. It has literally been years since I've played any miniatures games, or board games not meant for children aged 4 or less. I rambled a bit about my plans, and included some links to rules, army lists, etc. and I'm to lazy to copy it all over so... http://www.zerotwentythree.com/2015/11/planning-game.html

Spoiler alert: I made up my mind to take fantasy Hail Caeser for a test drive.

The scenario idea seems like a good one for getting back into the swing of it, and giving the rules system a test drive. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

As posted in the Pleasant Surprises thread... mine arrived courtesy of King, from the Island Fortress of Malta (or the catacombs thereof)...





A new (anti-)hero!

I couldn't resist getting a shot of him leading some troops against Marienburg...




Thank you King, he's a great addition to the army. I hadn't thought of painting gold/bronze armour and I really like the way works with the color palette of the rank & file troops, but still makes him stand out as a leader.  :::cheers:::

Slow progress lately. But I finally finished the second swivel gun.



In digging around through old minis, I found a light gun on a Burgundian carriage (Old Glory? Front Rank?) that looks about the same size/caliber as these swivel guns. I also have somehow ended up with a lot of extra Marauder dwarf artillery crew. So I think that may get painted up as a third light artillery to go with these.

I have also recently acquired a small unit of the old Disciples of the Red Redemption. There are 11 figures, but I would like to bulk that up a bit. So I rummaged through the lead bins and came up with these as possible additions...



The only one I am definitely including is the guy on the left. I think he will make a great addition. Not certain of the others. (Center-right figure has been Phnotoshopped a bit, to remove the crucifix from its hands. I would replace this with something else.)

Now I wish my lead pile was more organized.  I'd trade all of my disciples for that guy on the left...of course I have no idea how many of the disciples I still have.  Oh well.  (They are the only original Regiment of Renown that I own.)

If you do get organized  :wink: let me know. That's one of the only old mages I've still got a duplicate of, so a trade is entirely possible.


(They are the only original Regiment of Renown that I own.)

I am so mad at myself for trading off a lot of those sets long ago. From the blister box RoRs I had Mengil's and Golgfags, and I had most of the later boxed RoR and Machinery of Destruction sets. As it stands now, all I have are Golgfag, Nightmare Legion (thanks to Shadespyre!) and Skarloc's archers. I've still got the old metal Elf chariot too -- I don't remember if that was one of the boxes. I tried to get rid of it for years, but no one would take it. Now I'm glad, but I wish I had more trouble selling some of the other sets instead. :icon_rolleyes:

As much as I appreciate my collection of minis, I sometimes look back at what I had and wonder WTF I was thinking when I got rid of a lot of it. (Well, besides needing to eat & pay rent when I was in college and sold a lot of it off, etc.)

A few odds & ends.


One of two beastmen I'm painting for someone I semi-regularly paint on commission for.





As I mentioned previously, I think I'd like to get at least a small solo game in before the end of the year. I think going all year (yet again) without even a single game of something will be too depressing. I've got a lot of elements for a narrative campaign floating around in my head, and have started structuring it a bit and sketching out scenarios. One of the first is a caravan ambush. So I dug out my wagons...



I am long overdue in building/painting something to actually go in the back of the wagons, instead of just a bunch of empty wagons rolling around. So I think this may have to be another upcoming project. My plans for a last push of skeletons in Deadcember seems to be slipping from my reach.



You know what else I really need? I need to dig though my painted figures for a few civilian-ish figures to use as drivers/handlers for the wagons. So they don't look like just really well trained or magically guided horses & oxen.


Although I don't consider myself a big spender anymore, and think I have dealt pretty well with my extremely small gaming budget, it was tough sitting on the sidelines through some of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. There were a few really great deals. I just kept reminding myself that I still have a bunch of figures to paint, and (as mentioned above) haven't actually played a game in years. At the last minute, my will broke and I made one small purchase. It arrived already.



I had been planning on getting the Bones version of this figure at some point -- in spite of all the problems I've read about that version of the figure -- because of the massive difference in price. But when I saw it for cheap, I convinced myself to get it as a birthday (next week) or Christmas gift. No one ever gets me gaming stuff for either. I'm even thinking about wrapping it up and putting it under the Christmas tree.  :wink:

Honestly, I shouldn't complain anyway. Although I was tight on gaming funds, I did mange to scrounge up, barter for, and be gifted (without a reason other than good ol' individual generosity!) with some cool figures this past year..

I like your work with that beastlord as well as the wagons.  It is a shame we live so far apart as otherwise I would be heavily interested in joining you on your campaign.
