Re-purposing with a Purpose

The other day, Willie came over and introduced me to Heroes of Normandie. Basically a boardgame and we supersized it with my Flames of War minis. This is another instance where we take a perfectly good game and add another dimension to it by using minis. Heroes of Normandie is a nice game with great graphics on quality materials. The caricatures of iconic WW2 movie roles is another nice touch. Check it out. 

Playing the basic scenario for my intro to this cool game

Flames of War unit stands fit nicely as well as the vehicles

WIP: Soviet and German Armored Cars, Part 5: SdKfz 222 and SdKfz 231 (8-Rad) DONE

Oh boy! I finally finished my German armored cars and can't wait to get them on my table.

More fun with my armored cars.

Zombies supporting my armored car are from my Incursion collection.   

I decided to stay with Panzer Grey for better weathering and
highlighting effects as opposed to Dunkelgelb (Armor Dark Yellow).

Here they go tangling with some APEs also from Incursion.

"Steppe This Way..." Another Saga Battle

With the advent of the new Saga expansion: Steppe Tribes, I once again got excited. This would give me a chance to dust off my Mongol miniatures and re-purpose (read: proxy) them. Although, the miniatures I used are not really far off: Pechenegs from Old Glory to supplement the Mongol rank and file horse archers. 


You could read all about the make-up of my Mongol army from an earlier post

It's great when I don't have to buy and paint new figures to play another game. Speaking of which, both Mikey and I have been dying to try out the Horse (mounted troops) rules. He brought out his Normans to fight my Steppe Tribes as we played the 'Battle of the Ford' scenario from Saga.

Black Scorpion Pirates, Part 1

Jumping ship to do Pirates this time around. Finally getting around to prepping up some super, excellent Black Scorpion figures that I acquired from the closing of Little Wars, here in Houston a few years back. This is a mix of Pirate Crews, Rogues and Privateers.

Love the action poses! These will paint up really nice.
