Extra stuff to do

One of my friends bought me the Empire of the Blazing Sun Naval Battle Group for Dystopian Wars for my birthday. We'd played a game at Claymore and found it quite fun, the other one that was pretty good fun was Saga.

Either way the other thing he's been looking at is Bloodbowl and ACW. I already have a bundle of 15mm confederates in various states of paint (Most not even undercoated yet) And we found a copy of Johnny Reb at the show so he has that and I have the Warmaster alterations for ACW as well, so that's something else that will need to get sorted and will put my other stuff back a bit.

So ACW, Dystopian Wars and potentially a bloodbowl team in the offing for over the winter alongside the very real Saracens sitting all tidied up and ready for basing in the box beside me.

Claymore Update

Well it was Claymore at the weekend, came back with more stuff for the missus than I did for myself! This keeps happening at shows, it was the same at Salute this year.

Anyway, bought the big Arab pack from Pendraken to make a start to her Saracen army. Got some of it tidied up, the horse archers are going to be a pain to clean due to the flash that has formed between the bow and the arm that will all need to be dug out.

Either way though it's given me the following for Warhamster
3 units spearmen
1 unit light horse archers
2 stands of med & hvy cavalry. (1 further pack of each will give me 2 units of each)
1 unit of archers

I'll get more packs from the likes of Old Glory and Magistar Militium to add more variety in the units, (including the compulsory camels that she wants)

So it's a good start, I'll work on this one over the winter I think and then start getting my crusaders. (and world war 2) Until then she'll need to be content with running down goblins and elves.
