Red Box Games Kicktstarter: "Warbands of the Cold North"

Just a small heads up for those interested.
Tre at Red Box Games are running a new Kickstarter, this time to be able to make plastic Norsemen.

Tre is one of my favourite sculptors and I wish him the best of luck with this.

With this kickstarter we plan to fund the production of Fantasy themed warband starter sets for use in skirmish table top gaming. With each warband set containing all the basic elements needed to play a game of any of a variety of popular table top skirmish games. At the outset, each starter box will contain 5 semi modular warrior figures repeated three times per box for a total of 15 miniatures. These figures include 4 weapon and shield warriors and one archer.
  It is my hope to be able to expand the offering in each starter box as the funding allows me to afford more molds. These expanded offerings might include additional troop types for expanded tactical variety or alternate sculpts to replace repeated sculpts for greater variety.
  The first Warband Set offered is Njorning hirdmen set which includes ;12 hirdmen warriors, and 3 huntsmen. Each of the hirdmen is semi modular being fitted for universally interchangeable heads and right hand options. The right hand options included with the set are 2 swords, 2 axes, a mace and a spear repeated three times in the box for a total of 18 weapon options. There are also 6 different head options repeated three times in the box as well for a total of 18 head options. The archer model is fitted only for a modular head.

"Hildegard" Medusa, work in progress pics.

Here she is, Hildegard.
There are still lots of work before she is "done", but she is starting to look good now.
I have plan to add crew to her, more dirt effects, paint the mud on the tracks and work more with the paint chipping, numbering, maybe the "Assault brigade, crossed axes on a scull"symbol and so on and so on...

The mascot, an American WW2 bomber pinup was a must as her sisters also got those. It took some time to get it decent but Im happy how she turned out.

But she looks brutal now... :D

wip, Medusa 40k

Some new Work in progress shots on the Medusa. Still a long way to go untill I can call her ready. I plan to add crew later on. But she is now what i would class as tabletopp, playable,  I could take her out for a spinn on the gaming table. Shes got the basic camouflage and dark gray on some parts as well as some skratches.
Here she is equiped with a hull mounted heavy flamer borrowed from a Macharius. I will have to give her, her own hull weapons.

WIP, Medusa 40k

Just a small update on my Medusa. I did get a bit carried away with simulating vielding with greenstuff and applied to mutch but will do. Here she is after a brown priming.

Now I will have to give her a somewhat German sounding name so she can join her artillery sisters. Any one got a nice idea?

DBA one day campaing

Last week we had a one day DBA campaign set in the ancient world.
I rolled highest and was given the option to choose nation first.
So I chose Libyans (blue on the map), I seems to have a thing for dessert tribes with lots of light troops. I would be in a real fight with the far heavier armies of Egypt and Hittites.

We went with the DBA version 2 as we havnt really taken the time to learn the version 3 of the rules yet.
Thomas had done a terrific job again with hidden objectives and things to drive the campaign forward.

The Kanites (White on the map) managed to get free from their oppressor the Egyptians (Yellow) as I managed to kill the Farao in battle and conquer their capital.
But this meant that all the land they had conquered before under the hand of the Egyptians now was truly theirs and they were a force to be reckon with.

 I managed to get 28 points in total and earning me a second place that I was more then happy with.
