A Slight Change of Plan
I had sort of a plan at the start of the year for what I was going to try and get painted, but it looks like the plan is changing, as the Wyrley Retinue have now decided on our demo game for next year. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't involve Wood Elves, Sk...

The Northmen Are Coming!
Again rather belatedly, our first bunch of SAGA games were fought on Easter Sunday. We managed to get three games in in a relatively short session surprisingly, given our unfamiliarity with the rules. It really is a quick and easy game to pick up if we can ...

The Hirdmen
Rather belatedly, here's the final group (for now) of Vikings for my SAGA Warband. These represent two points worth of Hearthguard - four with the usual sword/axe and shield, and four with Dane axes. Unfortunately, the Viking faction doesn't get any special...

Malta at WMMS!
As I mentioned, Sunday was the West Midlands Military Show. We took our Malta game along to display, with the improvements we've made since Wargamer in December. The show was a good day overall, it seemed like there was a healthy turnout and there were plen...

WMMS 2015
Just a quick one to say that if you've in the Midlands area, pop down to the West Midlands Military Show tomorrow where we'll be demonstrating our new-and-improved "Mayhem in the Med! Malta c.1565" game all day. We've been busy tinkering since the last outi...
