Thanks gents. Glad you like them :)

lol I know just what you mean Keith. Quite often, browsing the forum these days, the lyrics 'A little less conversation, a little more action please' do seem to pop into my head ;)


Meanwhile, I've reset the table to a more open village + river arrangement for today's game (s)
The Pikeman's Lament this morning, and then another reset (more village buildings!) for A Fistful Of Lead medievals this afternoon :)

I can well believe that, for some reason.
 ;D

If you had a proper phone you could join in the fun  lol

wonderful (with figs pics). Can't really imagine better.

 photo quality is mostly excellent too, particularly if you're using natural light (can't really tell if there's anything else going on -which is all the more impressive).

Richard: a simply breath-taking collection. Fabulous. The owners of Renegade and of Bicorne must be a bit richer as a result! ;)

Stupendously great layout!!

I don't want to digress but......

Are the 'tiles' made from wood? I'm still humming and haring over what to use to building my terrain tiles and if I could get away with using wood then what sort of would it be best to go for and what sort of material is it best to use to create the texture and perhaps the off ridge or two?

Said it before and will say it again: wonderful collection and lovely terrain. It must have been a lot of joy to set up all of your miniatures.

Thanks Nick. Undeniably enjoyable :)

Darrell, these are just flat 6mm MDF boards about 15 years old. I have about a dozen of them with different road surfaces, ponds, low profile textures overlaid. Everything else - houses, fields, hedges, walls, trees, etc, just gets placed on top to create the scene. I store these boards flat in a stack. They have never warped. Truthfully, I don't know why people seem to have such trouble with terrain boards! I've got about 15 'sculptured' foam slab boards (temperate and desert), plus a dozen of these flat MDF boards. I've never had any warping from any of them - and they are not reinforced in any way. Honestly, I think it's all about how and where you store them :)

Anyway, a game was played, but for some reason, my camera was playing up and most of the pics were blurry :(

So just a couple of shots for flavour...

Prince Rupert leads his lifeguard across the bridge into the teeth of Gallivant's pike... Schoolboy error.



Although his unit of gallopers was destroyed, the pike were then shot to pieces and routed by Royalist musketry...



Leaving the Prince to go knocking on doors looking for Lady Astley - who it turned out the rascally Roundheads were holding in the church instead...



This was just one small corner of the battle, but alas, no more pics worth showing  :(

Much more entertainingly though, here is Senor Malamute getting into the spirit of things before the onset of hostilities  lol
