Had out latest game today! What a battle!  It was a real nail-biter against my arch-nemesis, Gregorius...and then the Monarch (T-Rex) entered! 

 

I’ll have the full edge-of-your-seat report, and photos, in a day or two! ::):

Ok, as mentioned, we had our latest, and third, game of our campaign this past Saturday.  We played the Drichean Cages scenario from the core rulebook, in which we had to free prisoners held by the local population.    My report is now posted. Enjoy!

 

       "...As the fight was ending, Marny, the Warden, ran up to help.   While the others hurriedly cleaned and sheathed their weapons, she went over to the prisoner , and taking him by the arm, tried gently but urgently, with soothing words, to get the quivering, sobbing, man to stand and go with them.
    They all knew the Monarch was very close now. In fact they could see him on the far bank of the stream less than 100 yards away.   "Quickly!" Lord Fortrywn said to his Niece.    The Heritor looked around at the carnage.  It seemed like there was no one left from Gregorious' crew. He surmised that they were probably all out of action, or ran at the sight of the Monarch.  But he was wrong..."

The monarch was a "gift" from my warden casting Beast Cry.  Always happy to help my fellow heritors.

My favorite thing to see in this thread. I'm really enjoying your session reports, they really scratch that Ghost Archipelago itch when you can't play yourself.

Thank you, Rat!   I'm so glad to hear you are enjoying the reports!   You won't have to wait long for another, as we play again in just over a week.

Even though he was battered pretty good, Skorri still managed to pen a report from the last adventure.  Hope you enjoy it.

Amras entered Skorri's room, "Good morning Sir, I see you are finally awake.  We are heading to the nearest port."  Seeing Skorri's confusion, Amras adds, "Let me fill you in on what happened once you.....ummm.....got injured."

Wow, what a great battle report, Knabe!    I'm glad to find out what was happening down your end of the table.    I'm also glad to hear someone else was having trouble with their archery.  My Hunter never hit anyone, and I think my Archer only connected once (maybe twice).  Maybe there was a strange magic emanating from the old temple that affected arrows...

 

I'm looking forward to see what happens when you and Griffin face off against each other again (Maybe Saturday...). It will be epic. :)

I (that is to say, Griffin) am hoping to be on the far side of the table from Skorri. :blink:

 

 

 

That can be arranged... ::D:

 

You need to start posting a report too, Rob.  Even if it's just a paragraph, or only some of your photos with captions.    The more the merrier!

Working on some Talonjacks for this Saturday’s multiplayer version of the solo The Floating Hulk  scenario...

     We played our fourth game this past Saturday.  A scenario called "The Island of Floating Hulks", based on a solo scenario, "The Floating Hulk", that was published in Wargames Illustrated.

 

    What a game it was!   Nine long turns of carnage and glory.

 

     "...Frantically, the Crew-woman began to paddle, but the creature had seen the small craft and sped towards it.    Arbyn set the oar down and, standing, brandished her sword.  She had been sailing most of her life, and was not afraid to face any monster of the sea with a good Elven blade in her hand. She smiled, and braced her feet in the rocking craft.   The Octopike disappeared a few yards from the boat; then with a shower of spray 8 powerful tentacles burst from the waves right next to the tiny vessel, and shot forward to wrap themselves around it's next meal.  But Arbyn, daughter of the sea, was not prepared to die that day..."

 

     "...A shout behind her caught Gwyn's attention, and turning she crossed the deck.  Looking up, she saw one of Skorri's Archers up in the crows nest of a small derelict sloop right behind the blue-hulled ship.  He seemed to have found something, and was calling to his friends on the larger vessel behind.  Slowly, the Hunter raised her bow and notched an arrow.  Determinedly, she drew back the bow, despite the fiendish pain it caused her.  Gwynwater could feel a trickle of blood going down her back,  but she did not waiver.  A brightness shown in her eye for a brief flicker as she sighted down the shaft at her target.  "Let it fly true." she whispered to herself, and released the arrow..."

 

For the complete report and more photos, see: The Island of Floating Hulks

      I put together this Barrow from xps foam and a decopage cardboard treasure chest lid. I used a greenstuff world roller to texture the doorway and landing outside. It is all stuck together with super glue. 
       
      I was keen to make sure that there were flat areas for based minis in the front and at the rear. My minor mistake was making the rear plinth/hill a bit too narrow after sticking on the rear wall section, hence cutting out a slit. 
       
      When all the glue has dried I will prime it with a mix of mod podge and black paint. Then I will flock the top. I need to decide whether to make this snowy or green. I think that snow will cover more model making sins...

      Painted a North Star Heritor for Ghost Archipelago, "Heritor II". The mini has been nicknamed in the fluff/lore as 'Big Red" so went for red hair. 
       
      One thing I was happy with was the base. I just used the "Wood" roller from "Greenstuff World" on some green stuff then stuck it to a washer. The wood grain roller doesn't work too well with foam but was ideal here. Then Vallejo have a paint/wash called "Woodgrain"  which nicely goes into all the folds creating depth and highlights. Good to have some literal paint names for once!

      Have been stealing coffee stirrers for a while and thought I should disguise them. 
       
      This is a modular set of docks for pirate settings/City docks, ghost archipelago. All I did was make platforms of various heights with layers of foam core board. Then Iaid cross pieces and laid the decks on top, just using different thicknesses of coffee stirrers. The stanchions are just pva glued to the side of the foam core, under the decks rather than showing above them. I painted the foam core black and am painting the wood using the Crafting Muse video on YouTube as a guide. I won't be basing these. 
      The boat is a lucky find. It is a decoupage model ocean liner. I cut the top off and had a curved boat shape 15cm / 6" long and perfect for 8 models. Only £1.25 on sale. All I did was lay a deck of coffee stirrers then took some of the bits I cut off and glued them back on to the sides. Painted like the Dock. I don't want to add seats, mast, similar detail to this model to maximise how many based minis can stand in it.

      Have got some Frostgrave explorers and some GA crew with a middle eastern focus.  Am getting better at kit bashing but these are the first mixed conversions using resin, metal, plastic and greenstuff. The Arabians are Gripping Beast middle eastern infantry and steppes infantry with Frostgrave GA crew arms. The explorers are Fireforge resin bodies, frostgrave or westwind pict heads and a mix of arms. C and C welcome.

      ATTENTION TABLE TOP RPGers!
       
      It's been a while, so time to start up a group of gamers again.
       
      I will be starting a Game Session ... once a month for 4, 6 or more hours at a session starting the week of my birth ... March's fourth week somewhere between the 19th and the 25th.  So this is an open invitation to any within driving range of Seneca Falls/Waterloo, NY area who are interested in participating in a month-to-month campaign. 
       

       
      This will be a Roleplaying Game with emphasis on the story and roleplaying. Naturally there will be some fighting, adventuring, exploring, thieving, and the like depending on the system chosen. I have two systems that I would like to run .. the first is one I have been sitting on for sometime and features a much more reasonable method of gaming than any system I've played and the second I have just acquired that is also a new style of system for me.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      DUNGEON WORLD
      Regardless of your rolls, the story moves forward ... it just might be more complicated than it was a moment before. Fantasy setting with D&D like characters.
       
       

       
       
       
      MOUSE GUARD
      Based on the comic/graphic novels of the same name. You are mice. Yup, standard size, like in the cover image of the book. But you are one of the Mouse Guard and sworn to protect Lockhaven and the Mouse Territories. The game uses a success dice (d6) system from Burning Wheel.
       
       
      So, if you are interested in joining this gaming adventure, reply or message me to get an invite to the Facebook Group.
