Literary Villains (and other personalities)

To start, here's Cardinal Richelieu and Vlad III "Dracula".

Dumas' villain is from Warlord Games, and Stoker's from The Assault Group.

The Dracula figure also comes with a boyar (armed with a neat triple-headed flail) and a noblewoman (not yet painted, not shown). Last night I also painted a set of heroes to oppose these villains: Stickler Mitchell and Young Megan from Warlord Games, and Bertha Bestraufrung(sp?) from Games Workshop's old Sisters of Sigmar range.

I think Drac and his buddy look pretty neat next to Warlord's voynuks...

more colorful than peasants

Here are some voynuks. Heavy Balkan infantry, in service of the Ottoman Empire by my era. I don't actually have an Ottoman army yet, but maybe someday. In the meantime, they'll be handy as hirelings for Mordheim.

New Year's Resolutions

I don't really do year-in-review type posts, because I never bother to track things I've done. I usually don't do resolutions either, but I have some in mind for 2017 so why not. In no particular order:

  • Revise my P&S Eastern Europe supplement.
  • Play at least 4 games of P&S.
  • Write an original rule-set and put a pdf up for sale. I have a few ideas in mind, if I don't get inspired to pick one over the others I might set up a poll here soon.
  • Attend at least 2 local professional wrestling events.
  • Finish painting every historical miniature that I had primed by the end of 2016.
  • Start training for professional wrestling.
  • Start running a pencil-and-paper rpg campaign.
  • Write a work of fiction, completing first draft at least.
  • Build some hills and river sections, a church, and some sort of permanent fortification terrain.
  • Re-paint enough of my Orks to play a game of Warhammer 40k.
  • Finish painting my Khador miniatures and play a game of Warmachine with them.
Thanks to everyone who visited my blog in 2016! I hope you continue to enjoy my work, and everything else that 2017 throws your way.
