The Desert Spear by Peter Brett. I will update this post with the delivery date and a review of the minis and service offered by Khurasan. So far Khurasan is very fast to answer email on questions I had about their products.
UPDATE: Dec 8th: It's been 8 days now and have not heard anything so I checked back with Khurasan. They responded very quickly but said that they have yet to prepare my package but that it should get done and shipped out on Monday.
UPDATE: Dec 17th Minis arrived today. All present and accounted for.
Welcome to AGSH. A wargaming blog dedicated to my Dad and the world's most noble hobby; collecting toy soldiers. Here toy soldiers clash in great battles from scales of 3mm to 54mm. Also the historical records of the imaginary states of the 6mm Republic of Prussia, the Kingdom of Aksum, the Principality of Huack, the Khedivate of Turkoslavia and the Duchy of Saxe-Huack.
"Truly it can be said of him, without count are his soldiers & beyond measure his might." - Prince Edward in reference to Lord Butler & his invasion force departing London for Mars.

Introducing the Black Hearts. A Feudal Lords Army. A collection of mercenaries and outlaws. Actually a fantasy army for extra, miscellany & oddball miniatures that don't seem to fit anywhere else. The four elements of Knights I might move to make another army with, but the foot elements are solid parts of the Black Hearts.
Painted up my first full warband for Song of Blades & Heroes and my skirmish game Myth. Prince Wulfgar, see earlier posts, and his loyal companions. Prince Wulfgar has the golden helmet with red crest. His cloak has a protective ward on sewn onto the back.

Three brave adventurers were hired by a wood cutter to rid his home of the four goblin invaders that had taken in it from him and his wife. The three adventurers set forth, Kenos, the Half-Elf Wizard, Logar the Human Warrior and Pik the Halfing Slinger. When they arrived at the cottage they found the goblins returning from foraging in the nearby Black Forest. "What luck, a fight in the open." Logar thought.
|The two opposing warbands.|
The wizard and warrior move forward for the fight, with the wizard wisely using the corner of the cottage as cover. While Pik the Halfing is still mustering his courage to join the fight.
|Wizard & Warrior both rolled 3 successes and moved long. Halfling rolled 2 dice both failed.|
The Goblin leader, Hursnak bullied his goblins forth to defend their prize.
|Goblins advanced up. Logar begins to move forward long and ends in base contact with a goblin.|
Logar brings death down with his mighty sword and shield and fells a goblin.
|The beads were used to show positive dice modifiers.|
Stunned by the ferocity of the human warrior and the bolts of lightening from the wizard the goblin leader fails to control his warband. While Logar continues his assault.
|Goblins fail to activate Logar fights on.|
|The Wizard attempts to aid Logar by transfixing his opponent.|
|But Logar seriously misjudges his swing and misses the transfixed goblin!|
Finally Pik has found his bravery and moves forward over 2 turns and launches a lead ball to the skull of a goblin knocking him down.
|Halfling finally rolls good.|
Meanwhile Logar and his opponent continue to fight it out while the Goblin Leader is content to await the outcome.
|Goblin activation rolls fail, combat ends in draw.|
|Wizard transfixes goblin again!|
Seeing their companion slaughtered so viciously the goblins fall back to the forest.
|Logar scowls at the goblins; taunting them to fight him.|
|I jacked this up, Logar killed the goblin but I was too preoccupied with taking the picture to fully understand what had happened resulting in a fallen model outcome.|
With the leader down and vulnerable Logar smote his ruin upon the hillside as the wizard moves in to assist.
With his leader and cousins slain the last goblin flees crying into the wilderness.
|Three morale failures, BOOM. Bye Bye.|
