    I hope Herr Doctor Malthusius is back this year, his three-legged goblin was well worth seeing!

    The very same!  Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff here the pictures that accompany the narrative are always beautifully done.

    Welcome Aboard Paul,

    I’ve been following your campaign for a few years now and I must say I can never decide whether I enjoy the narrative  or seeing the latest output from your unique (and highly effective) painting style.

    It always brings back fond memories of gaming with you more years ago than I care to admit to.

    I’ll keep it short then: not really our target audience… The idea that one should be an audience, indeed a target audience, has no appeal to me. Sorry, but there you go. I’m interested in war, I’m interested in history, I’m interested in the history of war but sadly I’m not particularly interested in the egotistical ramblings of wargame designers or opinions of anyone. Opinions are invariably wrong and they carry weight not on their intrinsic merit but on the popularity of those who hold them.

    You’re a real ray of sunshine.  Why bother posting at all?

    I’ve been running it on a base PS4 and with the 1.04 Hotfix it runs…alright.  Textures take a while to load, it’s still a bit fuzzy when walking around the city, lots of glitches and bugs and cars and NPCs popping in after a few seconds but at least it doesn’t crash every half hour.  Overall though the game itself is pretty good, I’ve found it engaging and it certainly captures the feel of the game for the most part.  The first few story missions are fantastic, exciting, emotional but I can’t discuss them more without spoilers really so suffice to say I’m hooked.

    However, it does feel a bit desperate to prove it’s an adult game, lots of nudity for those seeking cheap thrills, swearing (yes including that word) for the sake of it and overall a surprising number of randomly spawning marital aids (less so after the latest fix).  I’d say it falls on the wrong side of the line of good taste in more than a few places as well (sexism, transphobia and racial stereotyping have been heavily criticised).  Of course it’s only my opinion but I’d say a lot of the flak at launch was justified.

    I’d give it 6-7 out of 10 just now due to the large number of technical, maybe upgrading to an 8 if they fix the graphics issues.

    I’ve moved house a couple of times recently and had to pack up a load of big figures for transport.  I moved this lady in a cardboard moving box by wrapping her in bubble wrap and packing round them with more balls of bubble wrap and she survived pretty well although I did carry her by hand in a shopping bag rather than by bike.

    Some progress shots.  Next up some light plastering and then the serious business of painting the walls.  It may not look like much of a change so far but the absence of the old fireplace really changes the feel of the room for the better.  The tables 6′ by not quite 4′ (but extends to nearly 8′) so plenty of space for epic battling!

    Looks good Mike,

    lots of cool on display, I’d go for Appleton Estate rum, although Kraken’s always good if a wee bit sweet.

    So far the fireplace has gone (it was a fake anyway and much less impressive in person) and the skirtings are coming off, found some lovely wooden panelling under the window so that’s a bonus!

    Pics to come when the builder’s away.

    Cheers

    Nice looking Dwarves. What was the general gist of the article?

    It was an overview of army lists for the existing Barbarica range but also included a lovely simple idea that by basing 15mm figure in sixes it was easy to identify units at full and half strength.

    I’ve been unconvinced by Wargames Illustrated lately but this issue was excellent and well worth picking up.

    Looking good 😊 you’ve got nothing to worry about and you will only get even better the more you practice.

    Thanks, your tutorial was easy to follow and really helped drag me away from my usual wash and dry brush style which doesn’t work at this scale.

    I thunk the yellow ones look good. The only thing I could suggest is paint the spear point black before painting silver. Leave a little black between the brown and silver makes it stand out a little more. Those spears are amazingly nice and straight.

    Good call, the annoying thing is that they were under coated in black.  Another great learning point, thanks.

    Looks like I’ll have to wait a wee while to try the 6mm as Baccus are shut for a bit.  In the meantime had a go at the 10mm using Rhys’s technique.  Results below for the first couple compared with yesterday’s (surviving) effort.


    Yesterday’s horror in yellow!



    I did cheat using a magnifier but much better to my eyes at least. What do you guys think?

    Did a guide on painting 6mm samurai if it’s any help: https://wargamesasp.wordpress.com/2017/04/02/6mm-sengoku/

    You know, my whole dilemma is your fault! It was your fantastic 6mm buildings that inspired me to start looking at samurai again!  😆

    And now you’ve done it again, those 6mm look lovely….maybe I could order a few  from Baccus you know just to try them! 😀

    My wife is currently shaking her head at me with despair!

    I’m painting Kallistra ACW at the moment – this is my Wargames standard. Kallistra ACW Union would you be happy with achieving something like this standard? if so, some simple rules: brushes – but a set of Army Painter brushes. select the Wargamer: Detail Brush and block paint the basic colours – work with darker than standard uniform colour. now select brush Wargamer: Kolinsky Masterclass. Paint each blocked colour with the standard uniform colour you want but only painting the central and raised areas. Leaving darker painter where other colours/parts of the uniform are. then with same brush, use a highlight colour, quite bright, and just touch raises and central detail with this bright colour for each colour on the figure. example for flesh. Block paint flesh a dark brown. Highlight with a dark/sunburnt flesh colour/highlight with light flesh colour. you can then choose to apply a wash – I recommend a dark brown enamel wash. If you don’t want mix this up yourself simply buy Tamiya Panel Line Accent Color (Dark Brown). This stuff works wonders!

    Thanks, that’s incredibly helpful.  If I can get anywhere near that standard I’ll be happy.

    Says you… 2nd!

    I have this version as well, but in the original box. Not played version thought.

    3rd edition was the better game by a mile but I’d say 2nd had much better scenarios even if the balance was miles off in them in most cases.

    Sounds like they’re aiming to make it play well on a “standard” dining table which is about that size.  Given their target demographic it makes a lot of sense to me.
