In a bid to beat the Salute, cold turkey, sweats I wanted to spend Saturday painting but the clouds rolled in and the light was kack for painting so my son and I had a particularly brutal game of Crossbows and Catapults instead!
I have a distinct memory of my poor Mum having to trawl every toy shop in Essex and East London to find me a set for Christmas when it first come out and I still have the bits stored away in my Mum's loft of hidden treasures!
The set we were using was a large set of the more modern re-boot that come out a few years ago and I found at a Bootsale last year for a song.
As the projectiles were flying across the room I kept drifting off, thinking about Salute. Then I picked a spare one of these up. . . . . .
Which comes apart into two pieces. . . . .
and they look about 28mm size!
I wonder . . . . . . ?
After the games (Which Troy won 5 - 3), I retired up stairs with the spare towers and broke out the coffee stirrers and bits.
A couple of hours later I ended up with this. . . . . .
|"Open for business as usual"|
The two smaller parts of the castle makes up the base.
|"What an Estate Agent would call a 'fixer upper'!"|
|"Business, it's not what it used to be!"|
I like my terrain to suggest a story, just like a good miniature, so I included some one squashed under a rock. Was he a victim of the devastation left to rot? Or a zombie victim of an ambush?
|"Your Barred. You can't handle your grog!"|
|"You throw coins in the fountain, not piss in it! Where do you think this is Altdorf?"|
I also finished up the base for the card Tavern, included in the original Mordheim set, so should have that finished up for the next game.
