Vikings Part 7 - WIP units, Tree's and Dux Britannium thoughts

This update we have some more Vikings painted as starter. 

Bondi which means I continue to move closer to completing the viking army - which in a way is good as I begin my masters degree next week and thus painting will slow down as it begins to compete with work family and study.  It also means that the Saxon army is looming in the distance and I have begun to think about the approach I will take but I now envisage that by the end of the year I will have something tangible to fight the vikings.

Hail Caeser - 1st Game two games

The Last Two weekends at the Berwick Wargames Club I was able to get in my 1st games of Hail Caesar after having the rules for over 2 years, slowly building up the vikings and generally patiently waiting for the opportunity.

The two games were Greeks vs Persians the 1st being a do over of Marathon and then a general Persian V Persian with Greek allies.

I have to say I loved it- having played Black Powder and Pike and Shotte  of course the systems are similar but I really like the stamina of the units and that they are not as brittle as units in black powder or pike and shotte.

A Hut to call my own !

So as a small break for the focus on painting up the hordes of models for my Dark Ages project I wanted to make a start on my terrain for the period.

The kickstater I signed up for all the way back in may last year is nearing delivery in april and so I want to be able to add the bling and build up the relevant items such as field enclosures, houses, roads, trees and scrub.

A really late Cancon wrap up

Cancon has come and gone and Im back at work......

So having to insert oneself back into the rhythm of things after 7 weeks off, I really haven't looked to do a blog post, but we are now back on track.

First off Cancon was a blast, this year as i mentioned the plan was to participate not in tournament but in a participation game for Moderns, and I had the best time ever with a great bunch of gamers who appreciate the hobby and have lots of fun doing it!
