i hadn't seen this one before either.  I was wondering why you hadn't been so busy in the Old West; But you have been very busy.  Great choice of miniatures,  The scenery you are building is top notch so this looks like another thread to keep up with.  I have a copy of Witchfinder General but it didn't grab me.  Good thing too!  I want the stuff you are painting but can't afford another project :) .

Many thanks for your kind comments, currently away but looking forward to getting back home and getting on with this.

The recipe I am using actually is on my blog, if you want to  have a look:
http://argonor-wargames.blogspot.dk/p/my-mead-recipe.html

It is VERY easy to make mead - I most frequently use common baking yeast, but I have also tried port yeast, which gives a different, and also very nice result.  :)

Well, it's been a while, only 1 week short of a year since I posted in this thread. I notice that I am going to have to go back and replace the photos here after the Photofucket debacle. In the meantime, I have put together the rather nice Sarissa water mill which will be used as part of my Belstone scenery. I don't know any Dartmoor legends for a water mill although there is a very famous water mill, 'The Grist Mill' or Holy Street Mill at Chagford. The nice thing about this mill is that it can be used in many different games and it is also intended to double-up as the Much-Piddling Water Mill in this year's project, The Much-Piddling Home Guard which will appear at some point on the WWII board. However, here it is ready for some Witchfinder General type action.

That turned out beautifully. Every village or town should have a water mill, they're so handy for "witch dipping".
I really like the witch riding the broomstick, could you tell me who makes her? Thank you.

Very nice indeed, does this mean witch finder general is moving ahead, hope so.

Are the ninja turtles in the background going to take part, hope so.

Do you have a river or stream to power your mill or is that next on the list?

Good to see you back posting.

I can't remember at present but I'll post if it comes back to me. Maybe Westwind?

Vagabond, sorry to disappoint but Dad's Army is coming first this year, but I do feel the love returning for Dartmoor Horror!

The turtles are there to remind me to paint them, but they will be making surprise appearances in various games.

The current plan is to use mats although purpose-built would look better, we'll see!   ;)

..............and there we go, all photos now restored to this thread after the Photofucket debacle, thanks to Imgur. Concentrating now on my games for DevLAM '18 but I feel this could be a prime contender for DevLAM '19!!!!!!!!   :)

West Wind's GHW0007 - Storybook witches and old hags - please note the little child in the cauldron!  ;) Amazing figures full of character IMHO, and with the blister you can have 2 witches Characters in both on foot and flying models - throwing explosive pumpkins in the poor fellows below, of course! ;D

Thanks for taking the time to fix all the photos in this thread, it's much appreciated!

Also glad to hear you'll be wandering back into this project sometime, looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.
