In preparation for more games over Easter, I got a camp set painted up
I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel Ö but it was just some sod with a torch bringing me more work!

Looks good! Who makes the tents? They seem like good general purpose camp pieces.

Nice! I have those same tents, though mine came with a different fireplace and some blankets.


Pattus, they are a 3D-printed set, I've seen them being sold all over the place with varying accompanying other pieces by different sellers. I think I got mine from Etsy. Not sure where the original print files came from.

Re: Deanís 5LB Campaign (Hideout Raid)

ďWhile waiting for Brother Marcus, Ivar and Erik to be ready for the trip to Freefield, I decided we would deal with the Cultist hideout we had located. As we packed to leave, I was delighted to be approached by a Duskling with the delightful name of Grak Skullsplitter, looking to join us in our mission.Ē

Our heroes approach the enemyís hideout, until one of the spots Leonidas and raises the alarm. The two sides juggle for position, but Grak gets himself into trouble and is lucky to only take a wound.  Gunnar gets the first kill.

Knowing Leonidas is coming to help, Grak dives back in and kills a cultist, then Leoonidas kills another. The third cultist on that flank attacks Leonidas  but doesnít land a hit.  Now though Dorothea is in trouble, the leader of the cultists is in fact a Scheming Heretic who Charms her into inactivity, and a cultist then charges in!

Thankfully the cultist fails to do any damage and before he can try again Gunnar cuts him down from behind. Meanwhile Miyako realising the threat, manages a clear shot on the Heretic and down he goes! The cultists keep going though and their one bowman finally manages a shot, wounding Gunnar. Spreet shoots another cultist, but the other cultist on the right is a harder task, both Leonidas and Grak try to take him out, Leonidas picks up a wound and Grak goes down! To make matter worse, Dorothea successfully heals Gunnarís wound, but the scent of the magic attracts a pack of lurking giant rats!

Miyako does well to take out the Cult Lieutenant before he can do any further harm.  The last cultist is the bowman, he tries for Gunnar again, but the arrow doesnít penetrate his chainmail this time, and the Spreet takes him down. That should be that, but of course now they have the rats to deal with.

Dorothea is forced into hand-to-hand combat, but soon is on the defensive.  Gunnar wades in and with his +2 combat skills his trusty Bastard Sword is soon coated in rat blood, killing 4!.  Leonidas has bandaged himself up, and accounts for two rats, Miyako gets one, Dorothea gets in a lucky blow with her staff, and the threat is easily dealt with.

ďWe arrived back in Frostfire Ford with a grand tale to tell!  The cult threat has been dealt with, Grak was only wounded, the death of the Scheming Heretic was a welcome bonus, and we came away with some gold coins and a War Axe for Leonidas.  Tomorrow, we will escort Brother Marcus back to FreefieldĒ.

ďWe set of quite early, knowing we would need to camp at least once on our journey. We had reached Waybrook Gap, and were starting to navigate through the rocky foothills, when Spreet caught site of movement and alerted us that someone, or something, was approaching.  It was Leonidas though who raised the alarm as he recognised the cold blooded foe that had been raiding his homeland.Ē

First round all archers missed while the melee troops got ready to fight, and the second round also saw ineffective archery as the foe made good use of the available rocky cover.  That however was no defence against Gunnar, who killed the archer and saw off an attack from another lizard.  The lizards proved to be quite resilient though and Gunnarís opponent also survived an attack by Erik, while Leonidas took a wound. They couldnít hold out though as Gunnar took out his, Leonidas stunned his, and Erik finished him off.  Before they could celebrate though, Miyako alerted them to more foe coming through the rocks!

Spreet and Miyako were not having a good day, yet more arrows bounced off rocks!  Leonidas had been healed by Dorothea and lept in to protect the hapless archers.  Another attempt and still both archers missed again.  Thankfully the enemy archers was equally ineffective.  Gunnar downed another foe, now there were two left, and the gang advanced on the hill.

Wary of the enemy archer, Dorothea cast distract and both Spreet and Miyako decided they had better get closer before trying again!  Leonidas couldnít wait to see if they could hit anything at last though and charged into the archer, neatly removing its head with his new War Axe!  The Miyako finally got a shot on true, admittedly at close range in the open, and downed the enemy leader.  The battle was over, our heroes could continue on their way.

Nice little selection of Gobboes (Tytan Troll 3D prints).  Am enjoying filling in the enemy lists with these little units, plenty of excuses to buy ďjust a few more minisĒ  lol

I was hoping to not succumb to that impulse. As much as possible my aim with this game was to give me incentive to paint up figures I already own, rather than to end up buying more. But that didn't last too long. My large collection of unpainted figures from the LOTR partwork magazine has received some attention, but I have also bought a bunch of shiny new stuff, too.

Oh well, I tried...

My 30 year hiatus meant no 'pile of shame' to worry about and so far I've been pretty disciplined with only buying things for a purpose, I've even been finding ways to use up the remaining Victrix Vikings from my first purchase, and my most recent project for the Faceless I restrained myself and bought individual sprues from Wargames Emporium, so I'm feeling pretty smug about things right now.  A year from now though ... lol

Oh yes, it had slipped my mind that you had returned to the hobby after a lengthy gap.

Best way to defeat your lead pile is to never have one in the first place. Stay on target!  :)

ďWe moved on through the edge of Waybrook Forest and camped there for  night. In the morning I remembered the map we found on the leader of the  Old Ones, it seemed to point to location of a monsterís lair and we resolved to go and look for it after dropping off Brother Marcus at Freefield.

However, it seems that first we would have to deal with some fools who wanted to rob us!  They got quite close before Spreet spotted movement in the trees and sounded the alarm, but we soon dealt with the fools and only two survived to run away.  Leonidas took a slight wound and we thought weíd lost Grak but he was only knocked unconscious. 

Eventually we made Freefield, said goodbye to Brother Marcus, and prepared to go Monster Hunting.Ē
