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 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.

More Vikings

MORE Vikings !

These superb figures here were painted by my old mate, Carlos de Concha.


A few weeks back we decided that between various members of our club we could each paint up a few Vikings for some skirmish scenarios.

We split up a set of Zvezda figures between five regular players and as there are going to be various painting styles, just one of us would flock the bases when we all have the figures painted so they all blend in together on the table.

Zvezda figures, (and a viking on horseback conversion), all superbly painted by fellow gamer (and one of my regular wargame "enemies") Juan Reyes for our wargame club's "Medieval Project" .
