The Last Kingdom


The Last Kingdom is a forthcoming television adaptation of Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling series of historical novels known as The Saxon Stories. The series will premiere on October 10, 2015 on BBC America.

Set in the late ninth century, when what is known as England today was several separate kingdoms. The Anglo-Saxon lands are attacked and in many instances ruled by Viking forces. The kingdom of Wessex has been left standing alone under the command of King Alfred the Great. The main protagonist, Uhtred – the orphaned son of a Saxon nobleman, is kidnapped by norsemen and raised as one of them. Forced to choose between a kingdom that shares his ancestry and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested.

Frostgrave into the breading pits (coming June 2016)

frost into

With this new supplement for Frostgrave, players can lead their warbands into the vast network of catacombs, sewers, and dungeons that run underneath the Frozen City. It was in these dark confines that the ancient wizards known as Beastcrafters experimented on living creatures, creating strange hybrids and deadly monsters, many of which still roam the forgotten passageways. Along with a host of new scenarios, treasures, soldiers, and creatures, the book also contains rules for the traps and secret passages that are often found in the dungeons. With the wonderful and rare magical treasures to be discovered, will players risk taking their warbands down into the Breeding Pits?

Tried out Lion Rampant


Just tried out the Lion Rampant rules by Daniel Mersey with my son.

Lion Rampant is a set of simple miniature wargaming rules designed for fighting historical or Hollywood battles in the medieval period, from the rise of the Normans to the Hundred Years’ War and beyond. Beyond means for us we wanted to use it in a Game of Thrones  setting. It works a treat for that purpose I have to say. The reason for that is that there are no hard army lists in the rules . All in all the rules are very easy to learn and use and give a very neat game experience. Recommended for people wanting a quick game without a ton of lists and rules for every possible situation.

We are only waiting for this to incorporate the Targaryen Dragons!

These are just from the Infantry frame, there will be a knights frame too. This infantry frame can actually be used from the 1380’s to the 1430’s and for many different European countries, not just French.

Painting swop

I took part in the painting swop over on Steve Dean’s Forum. I send a figure to Greywolf ( an old Warhammer Plastic figure) and he send me a Space marine scout figure.

Here are the pictures of the completed figure he send back to me:

I put the figure next to some Lannisters painted by me.

Here is the figure I painted for Greywolf. It is the first Space marine I painted since Warhammer 40k 1st edition came out.

So I am not so good at painting these typ of figure anymore.
