Dragon Rampant Game in 1/72 scale


Got together with some wargaming buddies a short time ago, Alex, Carlos and Rob, and we got in a game of Osprey's "Dragon Rampant".

It's the first time I've played these rules, but I had the guidance of the other guys who'd gamed the system before, so with their help it was fairly easy to get to grips with the core basics of the rules once we got going.

A game needs a certain amount of planning to get the balance of opposing units right and to prepare the army sheets. On this occasion the "baddies" got hammered fairly quickly so it looked like we needed to fine tune the lists and/or the scenario.

But it was a good first experience and it's always enjoyable getting together for a game and getting some minis on the table regardless.

Some pictures from the game below



Marauding bands of green/skinned orcs and goblins advance on the village



Light infantry move out to meet the enemy 



Meanwhile, trolls enter the village



Light cavalry, accompanied by a sorceress rush out to meet the invaders







And finally, our "Hero" on his shining white stallion rides into the fray



And proceeds to decimate the green-skinned devils

1/72 Fantasy Figures – Good Guys & Bad Guys

I spent a little time recently finishing off some 20mm fantasy figures.
First off a few good guys.

These three sword brandishing adventurers are Caesar figures. They bear an uncanny resemblance to characters from the Lord of the Rings films.

Nice robust figures made from a fairly stiff plastic that have plenty of detail and paint up well



The archers below are from the same Caesar set.

Same again here, well moulded and highly detailed from a fairly stiff plastic.



The ladies below I suppose are neither good nor bad guys.

Vampirella on the left is from the Caesar undead set and the vestral virgin on the right is an elf, minus her catwoman ears, from the same Caesar set as the LOTR characters.



Now onto the bad guys

We have some generic bad-guy ork bowmen here who are basically old Airfix Roman archers.

I had to replace their bows and arrows with new ones made from metal pins as the plastic ones were far too flimsy and the paint kept flaking off. The green guy with the spear and the thunderthighs is from the Hat Sea Peoples set.



Some more green-skinned generic baddies. A couple more of the Hat Sea People, the figure second from the left is from a board-game called The Fellowship of the Ring, and the skinny pigailed running bad-guy is from the Esci Barbarians set.

1/72 Scale / 20mm Plastic LOTR Figures

This was quite a find, these are 1/72 scale / 20mm scale plastic LOTR figures



You have all the main characters from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It came in an dusty old Spanish boardgame that I found in a clearance offer in a big department store some months back.




The running figure with a club is a 1/72 scale Zvezda as a scale comparison.
