Armies on Parade: House Baratheon - WIP - updated 9th of Sep 2023

Ours is the Fury!

When I got the opportunity to buy a large collection of Baratheons from a friend, I just couldn't resist it! Baratheons really don't play into my usual play style (strike fast, strike hard), but I really like many of the miniatures like Stag Knights and Rose Knights. So why the heck not!

First half of 2023 on my painting desk and hobby highlights

 New reinforcements fill the ranks

I paint almost every day, when I'm home and sometimes I take my hobby with me, even if traveling. A typical day, when I'm not painting is a game night day. During the first half of the year I have gamed a LOT, so productivity has been a bit lower.

As you can expect, I have painted miniatures for the games I've played. 
Read on to see all that eye candy!

ASOIAF: Escape From King's Landing

Thematic Scenario by Board Man Gaming

Quite a different way to play Song! 

We have quite a competitive Song scene at our Nopat &Taktiikka club in Helsinki and we wanted to play something else for a change. We have already played Battle of Bastards and now it was time for an epic scenario from the first book, or should I say inspired by it. Check out the scenario here

ASOIAF: Finnish Nationals for Song of Ice and Fire - Tabletop Miniatures Game 2023

 Winter War 2023

Nopat & Taktiikka Wargaming Club, Helsinki, organizes the traditional and annual major wargaming event every winter since many, many years. For a couple of years Song has been one of the seven or so different tournaments in the event. This time we agreed with CMON to have the Finnish Nationals status and this boosted our tournament to a new record in players (26, 18 last year) and broiught a flux of players from abroad too! We also received a generous prize support from CMON - THANK YOU!

Bolt Action Finnish Nationals and Nationalist Chinese Army

Guomindang takes victory

It had been a long while since I had played in a Bolt Action tournament, even if BA has remained one of my top 5 games through the years and recently I ran a Combined Arms -campaign at the club.
So it was a real joy to have players from all around Finland to come together and mettle their strenght in Bolt Action.

I was fortunate enough to pull a tournament win this time with three straight victoeries in my games.
Tournament was played with 4 allied players vs. 4 axis players and matching players was based on this (aka not pure SWISS)

Martin joined me as a brother in arms fielding Finnish forces fighting off the onslaught of Soviets steered with iron fist(s) byt Marko and Johannes. We chose to play Winter War (1939-40) themed campaign. Read on to learn about ou experience.

We chose this map to present the border areas of Finland and Soviet Union, including lake Laatokka (Ladoga) and the Gulf of Finland. Grey for Finland and green for CCCP.
