Blog Merger Complete

Tonight I finished importing my fantasy and my sci-fi gaming blogs onto this one. That leaves me with just one to update on a regular basis. Please don't mind the mess as I reconstruct my post labels and sidebars.

5 New Terrain Tiles

I've been stocking up on 1' square foam tiles from Hobby Lobby. This weekend I had the opportunity to craft 5 of them out. The roads didn't quite come out the way I had pictured in my mind but I still like them. My goal is to have an assortment to mix and match for a battlefield. More to come...

Campaign Map for 15mm Chronicles of Aeyr

After YEARS I finally have my starting map. This has been a major roadblock. I'll start things off with a series of battles between the Dwarfs of Ragnaheim and the Black Rock Clan Orcs.

Bazil Broketail - Battledragon of the Argonath.

I don't recall, not even the slightest, where I picked up this book and a few of more from the series. I started reading it and have loved it. Bazil is a battledragon and his companion is Relkin a dragonboy. A dragonboy is a human who has been assigned to assist, fight with and help care for his battledragon. At first it starts a little slow, but then picks up. Half-way through battles are being fought and they are well detailed and bloody.

So far the story has dragons, humans, elves, imps, trolls, evil men, wizards, witches and hints of long extinct or forgotten races that might possibly exist in the deep remote, like lionmen. After the first battle I had made my mind up to create an army of imps & trolls as well as battledragons and their allies.

My Marx 6" Second World War Toy Soldiers Collection

This summer I rediscovered the old 6" green army men. So I started selling off some models to fund the purchase of these toy soldiers. They now occupy a prominent location in my war room.

Reaper Miniatures Bones - 15mm Dragons

These four superb dragons came with one of the Reaper KS Bones deals that I backed over the recent years. They are perfect for 6, 10 and 15mm models. I have already based them and will soon have them painted up and ready for war. I will post pictures of their progress.

The War Room in Our New Home (Prior to Move)

I mentioned back in November that we bought a new home. Here are some pictures of my wargames room prior to moving in and painting. I have since painted the room and moved into it however it's an utter mess at present. Once I have it picked up and organized I will post more pictures.
