It’s pre-Christmas month and probably wargaming companies have decided that huge boxes full of plastic miniatures are the way to go. After the Perry Twins American Civil War , Warlord games is rebating with a huge box to start collecting the American war of independence:
Content of the box:
3 plastic Mounted Commanders
90 plastic British Infantry
30 Hessian Infantry
120 Continental Infantry
30 plastic Colonial Militia
3 plastic field guns (6 or 9-pdr)
1 Molly Pitcher
8 plastic Woodland Indians
3 plastic Casualty Figures
Full colour flags for each regiment
1 Laser-cut wooden blockhouse
1 Laser-cut wooden ‘snake’ fences
3 resin gun gabions
Who’s going to win the battle of the big boxes with muskets?
Fresh new website for the upcoming Beyond The Gates of Antares, from Warlord game, designed by the “Lord of Sci-Fi” Mr. Rick Priestly:
Gates of Antares website
At the moment there is nothing really new from what we already knew, however I like the design and the fluff.
Soon we should be able to see also a series of videos starring Mr. Priestly explaining the mechanics of the game and the background.
Interesting stuff, I cannot wait to have my pre-order copy!
I had some fun painting a treasure token for Frostgrave, I think this was originally a piece of scenery form one of the Lord of The Rings strategy battle game box:
I also converted this arch ruins that probably was part of a citadel plastic giant and I made a small piece of scenery, just for fun:
Quite happy with the results
