    The full dragon story is a bit longer and is VERY silly, I’ve just found it again it’s there: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=77336.msg946400#msg946400 The statue still has a small and worn sticker underneath, it reads: Jade House Crafts 78 Skinner St. Stockton-on-Tees (and an old phone number)…

    Hahahaha 😂 what a story. A miraculous way to stop being a virgin, I almost couldn’t stop laughing.

    Toy dragons are cheap and you can imagine many things with them. Some years ago I found a silly statue in a car boot sale, I painted it and I scratch-built a small temple, I imagined a story… And with some proper magic the statue could turn into a real dragon! (a toy, also painted)… …and attack a small troop of opposite players… …but after killing some of them, the magic disappears and it becomes a statue again.

    That looks awesome Patrice, nice story too.

    Nice Toys Patrice! I have several pound shop toy monsters in my 20mm fantasy collection and rate them very highly. Now I dont have a dragon to strip with the simple green i ordered, i may well buy some more and see if it can strip the factory paintjobs from them.

    Looking forward to see what you found and painted.

    I like it, just enough detail to make it look more natural and perfect for wargaming, as you can still put a lot of other scenic pieces on top.

    With the way you did the river bank, the brownish water also looks better.

    I’m impressed by the quality of the result on that water. I had tried the Woodland Scenic water but found it never really set and a couple of ponds I had ended up with circles from figures during warm weather.

    I have a similar experience, took almost a week for each layer to dry and despite all my effort and thin multiple layers I ended up with a lot of bubbles. Tried a two component mix next and this worked a thousand times better.

    Looks good, what are you going to do with the shoreline?

    Love that rowing boat by the way.

    Looks really big for 15mm and probably needs quite a bit of work to get it up to your usual standard, but I can see the potential these may have.

    160 is indeed a lot, perhaps too much to do them individually.

    Maybe this is an idea: put 50 or so of them in a sturdy bag with a couple of rocks and sharp objects and give the bag a really good shake. The plastic is quite soft and will get dented and cut by the harder objects. It also takes very little time.

    Sweet, especially the left one.

    These inserts are a great idea, if you ever create a longer four wheel cart you can perhaps even make it big enough to fit two of those in.

    I haven’t played it yet but I’m thinking about playing it in 15mm. Only thing that has stopped me this far is the number of models needed, which is a lot more than for my usual skirmish games. Also, the base sizes are a bit weird.

    Looks great, how did it go?

    It went well, all enemies slayed and no casualties. The infected trees were burned and we rescued a survivor.

    Congratulations, though beware Infected Trees tends to be one of the easier scenarios. Some of the later one are tough!

    Yeah, I agree. Especially the last stand, where you have to defend a group of trapped survivors from the invading monsters. It depends on the order the monsters show up, but if you’re unlucky you can find yourself facing of against both a pair of trolls and a burrow worm. It’s a scenario where you’re easily overwhelmed.

    Yeah, that was an error, should be £18.00.

    Still more than worth it and not too bad a price for a ship this size.

    £15? I expected it to be a lot more expensive. I didn’t have plans for a naval game in 15mm, but I certainly do have now.

    Happy to see casting the ship went really well, looks really smooth. That’s one great ship.

    I have these, which I use for both 15mm and 25mm. So I think the size should be about right.

    I’m still struggling with how to make the infected trees myself, without covering them in hard to remove cotton or something like that. While not the most visually elegant one, your solution is still a good one. It’s just a one-off scenario after all.

    The table looks great and I like the cocoon counters, what are they made of?

    Well done, the bones on the fingers are a really nice touch. They kind of resemble how I envisioned the cannibals in ‘She’ would look like.

    I think they look great as is, though if it were me I’d paint the noses black to increase the skull effect. That’s probably just my CDO kicking in though.

    I agree with Mike, if you want skulls this would be the best solution.

    But maybe you haven’t gone far enough, a lot of African tribes use colourful bodypaint together with the facepaint.

    I hope your hand gets better soon and the cut is a minor one. I still want to see your finished boat. I’m trying to figure out on how to do a rowing boat myself, because it’s slim pickings for 15mm in online shops, suggestions ?

    Everything looks great mate, with your skill it’s even hard to tell they’re actually 15mm.</p>

    My eldest is almost 10 and really getting into board and miniature games since I started playing Burning Sands with him almost a year ago.

    The terrain I use are mostly big rocks and pillars, so plenty of scenery to hide behind and not be seen. I also think you and I play the game in a very different way; the way we do it, it’s more like an RPG with me handling the bad guys as a GM and my son usually playing the hero. Sometimes his brother (8) joins in with another hero or he gets a few lackeys, but either way the number of bows is limited. If there’s a hero with a bow (my second eldest usually likes to play an alchemist, which is basically someone who likes to throw grenades), I try to engage him in close combat as soon as possible so my big bad evil wizard gets the opportunity to launch his monologue and summon something from the nether realms.

    Mike’s suggestions sound like a good solution. What me and my son also do is use stealth when he tries to get close. We added a ‘duck’ rule as well, which means he can’t be seen when behind a piece of terrain but he only gets to move half during his next activation (as getting up from being prone or because he’s checking if it’s safe by peeking around the cover being going on the move again.

    At one time I asked Mike to make up a rule for nets, because some of my slavers are equipped with these. These combined with bows make a powerful combination and I’ve made it a point not to shoot at the hero anymore when he’s caught in a net. After all, the slavers want the hero alive and in good condition so they can sell him on.

    In the games I play with my son, we usually limit the number of bows to three, unless it’s a larger engagement with the hero getting some help. Another thing to consider is the use of terrain, you can’t shoot what you can’t see and we have learned to approach carefully when there are opponents with bows on the field.

    I think both bows and combat are abstracted, something not uncommon in both miniature games and RPGs alike, but given the flexibility and simplicity of the rules it kind of works. While not perfect, the limited amount of rolls make gameplay really fast and excellent to play with children.

    Burning Sands isn’t a game to play competitive in my opinion, but rather a toolbox to create great stories with (not unlike roleplaying games).

    Hmm. Maybe, but I’m going to have to build a “night club” site to play in. And then a 6 story office building.

     

    Sounds amazing! Love to see a game for the Department on YouTube as well.

    Witchin’ Hour is based on table size of 2’x2′. So if you play with 15mm on this size table it should work out just fine. And converting the inches to centimeters could probably work as well.

    As I play a lot with my sons, I usually translate the inches one on one to centimetres. This makes it easier for them, the metric system is the one they teach at school and they are far more familiar with it.

    I know this isn’t a 100% correct but it’ll do.
