Bolt Action: In the name of the father

Bolt Action: Hold until relieved

This is a most unlike story of Finnish troops defending a church somewhere very deep behind the enemy lines... so deep that they are attacked by the troops of Imperial Army of Japan!
And yes, you guessed it right: this game is not based on any historical battle!

Another 40K battle against Sons of Ultramar and their
gallant Warmaster Heinrich!

Re-enacting: Viking Market and battle in Pukkisaari

Viking market

Visited, as I've done many times before again. Nice battle re-enactment and nice handicrafts.

LOTR: Tom Bombadil & Goldberry

Painting Tom & Goldberry

We're going to play the LOTR scenario with Tom and Barrow Wights soon, so I finally got the reason to paint these quite old Mithril Miniatures. I have them as Citadel versions too, but decided to go with these.

See the finalized version

Dux Britanniarum

Last Sunday I had the most pleasant opportunity to try out Dux Britanniarum by Two Fat Lardies.

A new friend - Antti - met at Ropecon gave me and his another friend Heikki a demo of the game: my Vikings were to loot a Saxon village before the Saxon army arrived. DB is actually designed for Arthurian time, but Antti had adapted it for later Dark age... Excellent work!
