This blog will be getting some love and updates again. Huzzah!
Ive been rebasing all my figures from 25mm round to 20mm squares. That can only mean one thing... Im moving from skirmish gaming to mass combat fantasy.
This blog started with:
- 28mm LOTR/Song of Blades/basic D&D dungeon skirmish, then became
- an Oldhammer 1st edition game blog, with larger and larger units
As my retro lead miniatures collection has grown, my gaming table will now also expand in scope.
Ive got alot of new terrain for battles above ground. Time to take the battle out of the dungeons, my little stunties. Similar to how Expert D&D to Basic, its about the Overland Wilderness adventure.
The time has also come for my rules set to be upgraded as well. From now on, the story of the Dwarves of Moria will be told through the lens of...
7th edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle, with the 6th Edition Ravening Hordes booklet for army lists.
Onwards to some pics...
Readers of this blog should know how much I love Ziterdes terrain and buildings.
It wears armor and carries a large spiked ball on a chain. Even without the weapon, it has tusks reinforced with steel.
Its roar is like a trumpet. It looks about confused.
The other hobbits gulp and look at Lobelia, wondering if the Chaotic Beastly Mutation will heed her warning.
Hobbits appear carrying all manner of crates, sacks, and barrels.
So pleased was the great beast that it pledged loyalty to its tiny new found friends.
In turn, the Elephant Beastman was named a Hobbit-friend.
The Hobbit children came out reciting an old poem:
- Grey as a mouse
- Big as a house
- Nose like a snake
- I make the earth shake
- As I tramp through the grass
- Trees crack as I pass
- With horns in my mouth
- I walk in the South
- Flapping big ears
- Beyond count of years
- I stump round and round
- Never lie on the ground
- Not even to die
- Oliphaunt am I
- Biggest of all
- Huge, old, and tall
- If ever you'd met me
- You wouldn't forget me
- If you never do
- You won't think I'm true
- But old Oliphaunt am I
- And I never lie
Well, thats enough for one post. See you fellows on the next one!
