Mark and I dusted off the Dragon Rampant rulebook last weekend- and pitted my newly (ish) painted forest goblins against the doughty dwarfs. I originally put together my forest goblin force with Dragon rampant in mind, but the couple of games I played I didn’t really enjoy that much, as I noted here. We played […]Read More Dragon Rampant Revisited
New year invites reflection on the last 12 months, and hobby wise it’s often nice to look back on models painted and games played. At the start of year, I didn’t set myself any concrete goals (although that will change this time!), although I had the intention to finish my modest forest goblin force for […]Read More mubo’s (gaming) year in review

In my experience, despite the availability of scenarios (e.g. in the 6th ed rulebook), most players, most of the […]Read More Fighting battles on Thorkinson’s Island: Rules for pick up play in WHFB

So, a bit of an update on the progress of my Empire force. It’s almost 1000 points now, and should be ready for our campaign we have planned for BOYL. As I mentioned in the last post, I’d like to create a sharp divide between the liveried troops of the local liege lord, and the […]Read More Progress on the forces of Ternwold
I quite enjoy the Empire background in WFB; it seems much richer than many of the other races. I decided to base my army in Stirland, mainly because I decided on the green and yellow colour scheme first! Something I really wanted to get across with my army is the quite clear divide between the […]Read More Painting the Ternwold II Halberdiers
I played Dragon Rampant recently, with the lovely Curis from ninjabread. Dragon Rampant is a fantasy skirmish wargame that’s very heavily based on Lion rampant – a historical predecessor – but with some extra bells and whistles…if dragons and wizards can be classed as bells and whistles.
