A tabletop gaming blog, with a vague bias towards Central/Eastern Europe and the Early Modern period.

Here's the Warlord mortar, with partial crew. I bought the kit primarily for ladle crewman, that I was going to use for the diorama contest. I also previously posted the head gunner as a spyglass-using pirate. Here is the mortar itself, with the remaining crew. I especially like the mop guy, I expect he'll see plenty of use as a civilian bystander in skirmish games. Someone has to clean up the blood after all the swashes have been buckled...

Another favorite miniature

Here's the 17th century marksman from Warlord games, currently only available in a bundle with the master gunner. I just adore the subdued pose and characterful details of this little sculpt. He could be handy for skirmish gaming (although his pose might be unfair for system that uses true LoS) or he could be fit into a unit of ranked musketeers as a sort of unit filler.

Wizards and Command

Two officers and two musicians, except that one of each has been converted into a wizard. Hope you like them.
