The end of all things   Leave a comment

So our quest of the ring bearer campaign reaches its end with the final scenario.

Can Frodo destroy the ring whilst our heroes distract Sauron at the black gate?

Morannon Orc Captains   Leave a comment

Two captains painted with contrast paints . I went for brown to make them stand out amongst the troops rather than red to fit in with the unit.

First off Frodo and Sam need to cross the Great Plain of Gorgoroth.

This was quite a funny scenario. Link got his hobbits straight across the board whilst my Orcs spurred on the by the whip of their Taskmaster completely ignored them by failing to roll a six. Victor for Good!

Next we played three rounds of King of Tokyo and I even won two rounds!

Finally we set up the final scenario in our quest of the ring bearer campaign. I turns out this is quite a big one fought over two boards!

Locked down again 😦

Not able to play face to face due to the fuel crisis we played online. A great gaming session of The Crew in which we made it to Mission 37. Not far to go now. Some good challenges there for us to overcome even when we press the wrong button!

Red planet rocky hill completed   Leave a comment

A hill for exo planetary games.

Its an alien hill and my first attempt with carving foam. Next time maybe more slope but wanted the top flat for rocks and figures.

Science fiction Armoury with Lights   Leave a comment

Painted up an MDF sci fi armoury complete with lights.

Based on a grim, dark planet and ravaged by the hostile toxic elements the armoury is suitably heavily weathered and rusted.

It comes complete with lights.
