Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game: Treasures of Enedwaith Campaign

Battle Companies in Action

Heavy campaigning continues at the Nopat & Taktiikka club (check the new website!) with a Battle Companies based campaign located near Enedwaith (SouthWest Middel Earth). Campaign is organized by Jaakko S. and he has added a nice campaign mode to Battle companies. Ruleset in Finnish here.

I'm playing with a Fiefdoms warband. Read further to learn how my warband has done so far...

Celebrating the launch of Rebels and Patriots by Osprley Wargames


Several of us had had the opportunity to do play testing for this new set of rules coming from Osprey Wargames tomorrow! So we clearly had invented a way to travel to future!
Besides us play testers three more mates from club joined in to learn about the game.
Juha and Kalle hosted an AWI battle with and The Lament Ridge scenario from the book.
Me and Marko hosted a Russo-Swedish War 1808-1809 battle of Vaasa, that took place 25th of June 1808. This was also the next battle in our related campaign, which has been on hold for a while.

We started the event by distributing recently arrived rulebooks for play testers and then having a video call with Michael Leck (aka Dalauppror), co-author of the rules. He was at their club in Stockholm. We showed our tables and club and expressed our congrats on the publishing of the game.

Hobby Year 2018 in retrospect

What a great year again!

Looking back now, I feel gratitude and joy about my hobby and actually about my life, as a whole. I have lovely family and wife, whom doesn't complain too much about my hobby time and all the hobby stuff lying around and stocked at our house, I have a job, that doesn't take all my time, but provides nicely for life and we have a great gaming club here in Helsinki - Nopat ja Taktiikka, where I can find other likeminded fellows to play with. I'm also proud to call many of them friends.

Nopat -club's annual summer trip to Kalle's summer cabin (where we naturally play a lot too)

Read on to find out what were the highlight of my hobby year 2018!

Final rush for finalizing almost painted miniatures

Just like last year my December has mostly been dedicated to finishing half (or more) painted minis.

In this blog post I'm sharing the minis I've painted recently. On Novmber 11th I posted a post about having 420 minis finished this year. Now there 110 more and counting... 

I've also painted several models for the Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game, see them here
and terrain and Iron Hills Dwarves for LOTR, see them here

Way to Hogwarts - Updated 27.12.

Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game

Acquired This from Firestorm Games UK as Knight Models don’t ship to Finland. In this post I will review the game and miniatures and publish pictures of minis I’ve painted. This post will continue to evolve as we go forward. And what do I mean with “we”? This game will be a Christmas present to our family - my three daughter are all Harry Potter fans. And shhhhhh... don’t tell them about this!
