Indians, Indians everywhere!

Classical Indians that is! The army is starting to take shape.


The hoard!


6 Battle groups of Elephants.


Lots and lots of bowmen.


A couple of Battle groups of cavalry.

there is still a bit to go but I'm hoping to get everything finished in the next couple of weeks and take the army out for a spin. I still haven't figured out how I'm going to base them but I'm sure ill come up with something.

15mm Fortress work in progress.

I managed to do some more work on my fortress over the last couple of days.  Still a long way to go but the basic concept is coming together nicely.

I’ve put some medium foot bases up on the walls, in front of the walls and near the gate so you can see the overall size (Too big?/ not big enough?)

What do you think?

What do do when your bored at lunch

Today i started work on a new project.  Over the last week I've been working up rules for playing Siege games of FOG:AM. They aren't quite ready to post up on the blog yet (Most of them are on scrap notes of paper and in my head) but once i have them ready ill put them up on the blog for everyone to read through and see what you all think.  This has all come about from the simple FOG campaign I've come up with (Again it will be up on the blog in due course.)  Any ways one of the things I've always wanted to do in FOG is a siege. In the campaign I've made it that to win you need to siege the enemies main city.  Now i could have done this with a few charts/tables and some dice but that's not how i roll. I knew the guys would want to fight it out to the bitter end. So i looked everywhere online to see if anyone had done up some siege rules and i was surprised that no one (as far as i can tell) has. So i took it upon myself to make some up – we will save that for another post.  Anyways at lunch today i decided if i was going to do sieges then i needed some walls to defend.  An hour of measuring and cutting and we have a very basic outline of a wall.

As you can see very basic.  Tomorrow I'm hoping to have added the gatehouse and worked on widening the walls.

I'm aiming for an effect similar to this by the time I'm done.


This amazing wall is from Baueda.  Its rather stunning and rather expensive.  I doubt mine will look anywhere near as flash but I'm going to give it a go and see how it turns out.

End of a great weekend.

This weekend started off with Saturday being a FOG-tastic day.  Matthew and Christopher came along to our gaming group and joined in our Fun.  We had several games of FOG and a game of wings of war ww2.  Whilst the games we going i worked on cleaning up models for my next army and Garth was cleaning up his new Seleucid figures.  Looks like its going to be a nasty army to face - i'm looking forward to it :)
I didn't end up taking any pics, i was too caught up in the games.

Today i spent most of the day painting the skin on 32 bases of Classical Indians - it took a while but I'm happy with the result.  There is a lot of work to go but the army is getting there. As you can see my day was fueled by Mountain Dew...mmmmm sugary goodness!!!
