Push of Pike

No computer at the moment... still getting the hang of blogging via phone. Here's a preview of my Swedish-style pike block in the grips of brutal mêlée.

Now to the best of my knowledge, no battles in Renaissance Eastern Europe even came to a push of pike; but the image is so evocative that I'd gladly be proven wrong.

No Christmas For You!

Look out! The Puritan is back, and he brought some backup!

For while he was happy enough just to lecture you on Thanksgiving, he absolutely forbids you to celebrate Christmas. In fact, he had banned it as idolatry, both in America and England.

So the next time you hear some numpty complaining about a supposed "war on Christmas", remind him that Christmas is safe, because we don't live in a theocracy anymore. (My sympathies to any international reader who is living in a theocracy)

Gryphon Legion

Here are some winged lancers... not the historical kind, but a unit of plastics I converted to be Kislevites for Warhammer Fantasy. I mostly made them out of the Pistoliers/Outriders box, with wings from Dark Angels plastic bikes (generously provided by Joe, an awesome GW staffer). I've got lots more Kislev stuff, which I will post intermittently. Most of it is painted better than these guys, who were speedpainted to meet an event deadline.

All the Tatars (so far at least)

I took several pictures of the unit in a block formation, then remembered that they're skirmishers, so I threw together a possible skirmish arrangement too.
