Well, as some of the fantasy stuff I collect and paint (some of), is not LotR, and is not destined to become a God of Battles army, either, I think I have to put it in a separate thread.

I just purchased second hand (cheaply) a couple of plastic Warhammer High Elves boxes, and as I already had some HE from the Warhammer 3rd Ed. box, I decided to expand my colllection a little bit - with all the warband projects going on in my portfolio at the moment, I gather that I shall be able to paint another handful of minis or two for some Blood Eagle action, somewhen this fall. Plus, they may become the start of a new GoB-project along the way...

This is my original collection it all its unfinished WIP glory:



And my recent purchase (arrived today):

Got these in the mail today:



I constructed a 27 pts warband for Dragon Rampant (yes, I know, not standard size  :P ) right away, details on my blog!

Planning to make another 27 pts warband out of some of my recently purchased Lizardmen ( http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=68878.75 ), and try to get a game on this coming weekend.

Love that setup you have there. Does Blood Eagle lend itself to Fantasy very well? I thought it was a viking thing.

Blood Eagle is only semi-historical, and set in the 'Legendary Dark Ages'. It contains rules for a bunch of 'mythical' creatures, as well as a lot of 'Traits' (special abilities), and christian 'Miracles' as well as pagan 'Wyrd', so a low-magic setting as LotR is easily adapted.

Besides, the points system is completely open-source, so you can make your own profiles (and the 'official' lists give good advice for balanced warbands).

Only gripe is, you may lose horribly if you manage to roll all low rolls on the single d10 used (I always seem to do so when I am not rolling 2 dice for a combined result), but the system is simple and fast-flowing, giving some intense games (the alternate activation of minis in all turn phases keeps both (or all, if more) players on their toes at all times).

What a sad conclusion about DR.

I, at least, shall not bother you with it in the future.
