Roma Bellatrix: Officer Making Sacrifice

I am not currently working on a project regarding Romans, I now, but I expect to be later this year.

I was asking on the LAF if anybody knew of a suitable Roman priestly mini to include in an army, and the user 'Morgan' was so kind as to send me this Warlord Games mini.

I hope to find the time and motivation to make some of my Wargames Factory Caesarean/Late Republican Romans into a warband for OGAM and Broken Legions (and probably Blood Eagle), then over time expand it for A Fantastic SAGA.

Dark Ages: Plastic WIP

The kids have Easter vacation this week, and with them being home, I do not spend much time on the hobby.

I have managed to clear some minis away from the prepping station, though, and have begun assembling the last Vikings I need to get done in order to get the army ready for God of Battles, too.


I expect to get the steam up next week, as from Monday, I have 1½ week off, and it should be possible to get a few minis painted in that time, if I get stuck in and spend most of the days at the pain(t) station (I should finish assembling the above by Sunday, I hope; I have to work Wednesday through Sunday, so I am not going to have much time to spend, but if I can just get two parts ataached per day, I should be fine).

3D Design: Card Deck Holder

I have begun dabbling in 3D design for printing stuff at home (I am planning to get a 3D printer, and have begun saving up for it).

Earlier today, I downloaded 123D, and I have been playing around with it, until I arrived at this result.

The deck holder is designed for cards in FFG Yellow sleeves (X-Wing and/or Star Wars Armada damage cards, for instance), and I expect to make versions for all the games I use cards for. I have not figured out how to resize a finished design, but it may be possible to do so, instead of designing from scratch every time.

Dark Ages: Full Viking Warband

Here they are, four points of Warriors, two points of Hearthguards for SAGA.

For God of Battles, they can count as two units of Brutes, one unit of Younglings, and almost one unit of Brute Slayers As mentioned earlier, I shall now upgrade the Hearthguard to 10 models, which is effectively all I need to field 24 points in God of Battles, but I shall paint another 10 mail-clad warriors to use as another unit of Brute Slayers, so that I can field different configurations - and only need to do another unit of unarmoured Warriors/Brutes (which will then need only six additional models painted, as the Warriors already count 24 models) for a 36 points army. I shall also paint a Godi for the army; Crescent and Cross has rules for priests, and it is nice to have one for God of Battles as well.


I also need to decide on a Thor model to use this army for Of Gods And Mortals, I shall probably get a pack of the 'fantasy-ish' Vikings from Foundry, together with some berserkers or úlfhednar.

Dark Ages: The Second Point of Hearthguard

And here they are - I shall make a full line-up of the warband tomorrow, as I have to clear some space on the dining table, first.
