I'm having some problems with comments to my posts. It started happening with my most recent post...I would get email notifications that people had commented but when I clicked the link I couldn't find the comment. If I logged out of Blogger and Google then I would see all the comments but when I logged back in most of the comments would disappear and I could only see a few. I can sometimes find the comment and reply if I search for the person who commented on Google+ but this doesn't always seem to work. The good news...for me, anyway...is that this seems to be happening to others and Blogger is on the case. They are asking anyone who is having trouble to let them know here.
So if I haven't replied to your comment, it's not because I'm being rude...I can read what you've written but just can't reply! Hopefully things will be sorted out soon.

Matt Slade of Glenbrook Games has just sent me some photos of the latest lot of figs he has done for me...the last of my Frostgrave figs!
As always, he has done a brilliant job! Can't wait to see them up close. Thanks again, Matt! I shall, of course, take a load more photos once I get them.

My copy of Odin's Ravens from Osprey Games arrived today. The production values are excellent as to be expected from Osprey....the wooden ravens are superb and the cards are made from good quality cardstock and are beautifully illustrated. A really great looking game!
I haven't had a chance to play the game yet but as it is a two player game that can be played in half an hour, I know it will see a lot of play....with young kids in the house, these are the sort of games that get played most often!
There is a video 'sneak peek' here and a review here, for those that are interested.

Here it is...our latest Dragon Rampant battle report:
This time the boy decided he wanted to be the bad guys. And yep...he wiped the floor with me. Again. Great fun!
Here's a bigger and easier to read version of the battle report on Google Drive and Dropbox.
The figures, a mix of North Star, Red Box and Hasslefree, were all painted for me by the inimitable Matt Slade of Glenbrook Games.

This isn't wargaming related but it might, perhaps, be of interest to some. As a huge fan of the original Conan stories (not to mention the comics and, indeed, even the 1982 film) I've been eagerly awaiting this kickstarter from Modiphius. The artists alone are enough to make me drool.

Superb figures...especially the Pagan Priest! Sigh! More minis to add to the already huge 'to-buy' list!
Just saw this posted up on Renedra's Facebook page...
It's been a while since we showed anything of the Tower project that we are working on, but in between working on some of our customers upcoming projects for Salute release and beyond we have been steadily progressing this project. The initial release will be the Tower this can be customised to be either fantasy or generic - but our aim is for the Tower section to be utilised with sections of ramparts and crenellations to construct a full castle, this is still a work in progress and to date we have 3 frames to show, these are lower and middle wall sections, upper wall sections and a frame with portcullis, doors and corner pieces. The next frame we are working on is the Tower crenellations with two different sets of gargoyle and wall torches. The last part is a base, this goes inside the top section, and another one on the top that if not glued will be easy to remove allowing figures to be placed inside the top section firing weapons from the windows. What we are planning to do is sell the basic Tower as a boxed set and the other sections will be bagged and can be bought as individual sections as to customers requirements. Prices haven't been finalised yet. Our priority is to get the Tower finished for Salute release from us. We will have a diorama on our trade stand of the front section showing how this can be converted to a castle. We will also have pictures that we have taken on the workbench showing different ways in which the parts can be assembled to customise the build.
Renedra's first lot of Ruins look great and I have their second lot of Ruins primed and ready to paint (I'll get around to it soon, hopefully) so I shall certainly be picking the Castle and Tower bits up when they're released.
