    Is that that a 1st printing with Elric and Cthulhu, or a later printing when they were removed?

    WFB 3rd edition is where it’s at for me. I haven’t played since the early ’90s though. I very thoughtfully crafted a wicked Slann army and ordered all the old models from England (I’m in the western USA) and did a lot of conversions to get it all just right. I think I played two games with it before 4th dropped, and suddenly my army was obsolete (also happened to my Squats in WH40K 3rd edition.)

    What we played a LOT of was Chaos Warband campaigns from the Realm Of Chaos hardcover books. We had bunches of fun with that, both in fantasy and 40K flavors.

    The answer to your question proper is “enough to move the plot along.” Mostly I use pre-made settings, and there seems to be science-magic baked into most of them. Star Wars has The Force, Traveller, Star Trek, and Starship Troopers all have varying degrees of psionics, Warhamster 40,000 has all of their psychic and chaos wackiness, the list goes on.

    I played my second solo game of Forbidden Psalm. It’s a fun enough game, requires very little prep but really isn’t as satisfying as Five Leagues From The Borderlands. I think I neex to make a new Five Leagues warband tonight.

    OK, let’s assume that miniatures gaming as a hobby includes all the aspects: painting miniatures, making scenery, playing games, reading rules, etc. That means 90% of my tabletop gaming time is miniatures gaming as a hobby. The other 10% is spent perusing and planning RPGs that will never be played. Of course, I spend about ten times as much time playing World Of Warcraft with my wife than tabletop gaming.

    My first game was Dungeons & Dragons when I was nine years old. My next four games were Sandhurst Book Of Wargames. Then Traveller and Striker, Warhamster 401K, DBA, and then it just got out of control. I never really thought about whether something was particularly historical or another genre, I just worried whether I was having fun or not.

    My biggest as-yet unsolved challenge is how to do castles in the 25th Century. Because both sides still use castles, and besieging and taking castles is definitely a big part of campaign goals.

    Does this mean neither side has figured out aircraft yet? Because one good bombing run renders castles obsolete.

    So what does the cat do for your team?

    The cat can move EXTREMELY fast and eat the face off of another player’s Downed crewmember, thereby killing them instead of having them roll on the Injury/Death table after the game. The Bengal Cat that I recruited can loot dead bodies and carry one piece of loot. Other kinds of cats have other abilities. I feel like this is really the game for me, as they have an entire supplement dedicated to cats and trenchcoats (but, alas, not cats in trenchcoats.)

    How do the Martians fit in? A tripod feels a bit overkill…

    To be honest, I’m not quite sure yet. Kurt has a tripod meant for 15mm games that he plans on using as a Hostile, but it’s smaller than a Fiat on legs so maybe a one-martian vehicle. Plus a lot of the poison gas floating around the battlefield is Martian in origin.

    The Chaos army lists in both Slaves To Darkness and The Lost And The Damned were meant to replace the Chaos army list in Warhammer Armies. It was one of the first cases of the game designers increasing the power levels at a similar points cost in list building. Eventually that became the trend we see now, where every new army list released is better than the ones that were published previously, throwing balance out the window and creating a reliance on clever scenario design for an even game.

    If you can find it, Dragon #25 has an Aztec wargame called “Xochiyaoyotl” starting on page 37. I’ve never been inclined to build forces that big for Aztec wargaming, but it seems like a reasonable, old-school crunchy wargame.

    The figure looks great. Adding a green stuff “maxtli” loincloth where the belt buckle is would make the figure pop. But I have to be “that guy” and mention that indigenous people couldn’t really grow substantial beards. In fact the Aztecs had proscriptions against any facial hair. Young male children had hot compresses applied to their faces to stifle hair follicle development. Apparently, elderly Aztecs of high social standings could wear beards, which were small and wispy. “That guy” mode off. (And I do realize this is in the Fantasy section)

    Fantasy dwarfs have beards in my book, even when they live in the House Of Tezca and travel southeast to Far Payit 😉 I am well aware of the historical facts of Aztec and other Native American facial hair 🙂

    Interesting conversion, I love the idea and the things such as the shield, weapon and colours. Only thing that looks a bit off are the clothes and the belt, but I’m hardly an expert on the culture. It’s a very nice change and take on the classic fantasy races. Reminds me of those Roman Orcs I once saw.

     

    Thank you. I figured since the Aztecs had pants attached to their suits, and Apaches had belts and high boots, this wouldn’t be too far beyond reason. I made the buckle and hairpiece gold, because, well dwarfs and gold go so well together…

    Urm – OK – yes love it. Super idea and a great change from the ‘classical’ viking or bright orange look. Is it a one-off or will you do more?

    Thank you. This will probably be a one-off. If I get a crazy hair, I might make an opponent group of 12 for gaming, but in the Maztica setting that I am using, the dwarfs from the House Of Tezca desert are a long way from the jungles of Payt where the adventurers are.

    Very refreshing to see something used for a fantasy game other than the traditional semi medievalish figures. Nice job!

    Thank you. I’ve been wanting to Aztec fantasy since the late ’80s, and now it’s all coming togeter. My other “big” solo campaign is set in Glorantha and features Hellemized ducks as the main protagonists. I also have a Medieval Fantasy campaign, but for a bit of difference, I made it Spanish instead of Continental. And because it is Fantasy, Ancient Egypt is right across the Strait of Gibraltar. For their next zone of adventure.

    Nice paintwork. Shame the joins on the arms meeting the body is obvious, perils of multipart plastics for flesh I guess. Still tidy though.

    Thank you. The joins aren’t perfect, the models are VERY heroic for historicals, and they aren’t 100% accurate, but I’ve been waiting for hard plastic Aztecs in a scale I use since the early 1980s so I still love them 🙂

    We’re pretty poor due to the pandemic right now. So hobby budget is determined by need versus want; needs are replacement brushes, paints, and sprays, or a few stray miniatures to finish a project. A want is an expansion to an existing force or a new force entirely. Needs are discussed andvcan be worked into our existing shopping budget. Wants are putvoff until we have a little extravv
