Industrial Terrain

Have recently been working on some new boards for D&D and realised that they could be used in a variety of games. Mainly I have been making a new 24" square board for D&D with a set of legs to raise it for ease of play. However I came to realise it could be used in many wys.

The legs to raise the boards are just card tubing that had a part for our campervan delivered in recently, at the moment painted black and topped and bottomed with non slip matting. 

Not sure how to paint these yet as they are for several games and could cause problems.

All the other terrain you will have seen before, I was a bit surprised at just how much I have produced over the years.

Not much else to say other than I also recorded a film as I had all this set up, may post a  day or two when its all sorted. 

Also can I say a big thank you to all the people who have looked in on my site over the years, I have just had my 100,000 view, cheers :-)

Saga: Vikings V Anglo Danes

A week back Mick and myself got together and played another round in our ongoing series of battles between the Vikings and Mick's Anglo Danes. It was a six point game and we played at the WWarriors GC, using my Frostgrave 3' by 4' mat and some terrain I had recently donated to the club.

Will not be going into lots of detail explaining which saga abilities were used or which tactics. But will mention a few moments and let the pictures tell the story.

I used the Vikings to push forward so that the ADanes had fewer options basically.

I know Mick likes to sit back so I came forward to him.

I was very lucky with my save throws against the ADane shooting.

Picked up some fatigue along the way, but managed it OK.

I tried to split the ADanes in two, deal with one flank then attack the other, hopefully weakening their stronger flank.

By this point, partly through aggression and partly by luck I had managed to dampen the right flank.

The ADane Hearthguard charged into my Bondi.

Bit of a set back here as the ADane Hearthguard did 4 wounds, and subsequently the Viking Berserkers charged and destroyed both themselves and the ADanes. 

What a senseless waste of life (Been watching Monty Python)

In the final moments the ADanes realised they didn't have enough solid units left to mount an attack and the game was declared for the Vikings. However the ADanes had started to use some of their saga abilities to add and use fatigue to their advantage and in the next game it really comes to the fore. Will post soon.

Victory to the Vikings.

Cannon Hall Farm/Ghost Archipelago

Took my family out to Cannon Hall Farm a few days ago and took some pictures of "Fairyland" a sort of folly in the grounds of the house, created from the remains of a couple of old churches; Silkstone and Cawthorne.

Made me think of Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago and the upcoming Rangers of Shadows Deep so I thought I would record them here.

Had to include this amazing tree, may have to create a D&D setting amongst the boughs of a huge wood elf town.
