Prinny Moves

Not sure if anyone comes here anymore...

But for those that do, a new blog has been created with some of the friends here in Wellington.

Should cover most games, my posts will mainly be Impetus and WM focused.

Here is the Link


Hope to see you there :)

Happy New Year and all that Jazz....Oh look Elephants

Well I am back after a few months off, I will blame work and personal events.
But the reality is I am just very lazy :)
I have been slowly painting up my Carthaginian Army for this years Southcon event.
400 points with 2 generals, I will post the list later as I am still in theorymachine mode about what to take.
The below pictures are from the game I had last weekend, Tom was nice enough to  run his EIR army against me, it was the first time he had used two generals... I hope he had fun...well he won so that always helps :)
My Army ready for battle

Oh look an Elephant

The evil EIR ready to kill my peace loving elephants

The first turn advance towards the Romans

Those elephants are getting nice and close

Waiting for the moment to charge

The parts of my army I am still waiting on to arrive

Elephant on legion action

Just another pic

YAY the cavalry wing has won its duel

High point of the battle for me

Well crap..... no elephants

Close in picture of some horses

Roman victory.... boo hiss
As always a great game of Impetus, Tom was so much fun to play against, even with his Chain Attack Casino dice, those things are great :)
Hope to have another post sooner rather than later, but lets be honest this blog is a tad hit and miss.

Long Time No See......

Just a quick update out of the blue, I have spent the last few weeks getting this army painted for the HuttClub V3 competition.


The below is my 400 Points of Early Italian Wars French, lets say 1498.

The pictures have been taken with my phone, so they are not super great.

I have a test game this weekend so will get out the big boy camera and take some better pictures.

Army all ready for Battle

 Everyone's Favourite Veteran Swiss Pike with Allied Swiss to keep them company 

 Canon and French crossbowmen guard the camp

 French and Italian Men at Arm, with some light horse

Dancing Bear
Hopefully I should get some better pictures this weekend, though looking at the bear I might have to add another coat of paint to him.

Almost there

Well this one is a little late, I will blame work for that.....

So some more pictures of my Impetus army for its trip down to Southcon. Again sorry for the quality.

Just the last base of cavalry riders to paint and the middle of the camp plus some more disorder markers if I have time.

Generals base (Though I think it might be better to have him on foot)

Generals base with his army

Disorder Markers
Nothing says opportunity marker like a ninja

One of my foot samurai bases

The other foot samurai

 Another view of it

Army overall.

Another week, another post

Well I have been quite lazy on the painting side, just the one base finised, but lots of base colours painted on others so there should be at least two stands posted this time next week*

My Camp.... what ever shall I put inside it :)
Also had a game of Big Boy Impetvs finally, we managed to get heaps of it wrong, but I always find the best way to learn a new ruleset is to read the rules, play a game then read the rules again. But that is just me.
Till next week

Its ALIVE !!!

Well after being away for... well f-ing ages really I have decided to get this thing back on track.

So after all this time what have I been playing.....

Malifaux, Fow and picked up Infinity, Saga and Impetus.

Below is the start of my Southcon Army,

I will expand this out to 400 points after Queen's Birthday weekend.

I have decided to start painting the Ashigaru first since they are uniformed troops they are quick to paint.

The Samurai... well they could be more of a problem for me.

All figures are Perry Miniatures... so very nice.

Pictures are average at best, but I hope you get the idea.
Late Samurai from Extra Impetvs 5.

Average Command Structure 12
Fair General 20
Mounted Samurai CP 38

Oh look something shiney

Well my war game magpie-itis has struck again, with Call to Arms less than a month away and with me needed to paint 4 battalions of foot and my Hussars to finish my Russian army I have loss the motivation to finish it.


While having a small clean out of my hobby stuff I spotted some FOW british paras and have been painting them up, once I get a hold of some of the new FOW rubble bases I will get some pics up as I feel they are the best FOW figures I have painted.

BUT  :)

While digging deeper into the piles of toy crap I spotted an infinity figure
( http://www.infinitythegame.com/ )  that I have had for ages and decided to paint that as well. I have now decided to get a starter box of them and get a game or two in, from what I have read online this looks like it will be a very very good game, and of course the figures are GREAT
