Log Cabin

| May 26, 2014

I returned from Nashcon and just HAD to do something gaming related while I was still excited.  I bought another 4Ground building from Age of Glory.  After filing, priming, and basing a bunch of 15mm fantasy figures I will be using with my 10mm fantasy collection, I assembled the log cabin.  These are very fun […]

For the second year in a row a subset of the Harford Area Weekly Kreigspeilers (HAWKs) from the Baltrimore area headed down to NASHCON for the weekend of gaming.  This year’s expeditionary force was Dave, Chris, Duncan, Don, Greg, and me.

I have been slaving away on adding all the figures to the Bear Yourselves Valiantly book.  I think it’s coming along nicely.  Above is one of the examples form the book.  There’s still a lot more to do, but I made a lot of progress in the last couple of days.

Last night we had large attendance at our HAWKs gaming night.  I think we counted 18 people!  Greg and Don ran the French and Indian War game they are running at NASHCON, and Dave ran his “Rescue the Prince” Bear Yourselves Valiantly fantasy game, also for NASHCON. The FIW game seemed to go quite well.  There […]

Photo Shoot

| May 4, 2014

Today Dave, Chris, Tank, and I got together to shoot all the photographs for the Bear Yourselves Valiantly rule book.  It took much of the day.  It might have taken longer, except we had figures from Fate of Battle to use as guides.  In some cases we were merely reproducing figures from some of the […]

Completed Magister Millitum Figures

As mentioned in a previous post, we have been working with Magister Millitum on a cross promotion of their new, exciting line of fantasy figures and our new, exciting rule book:  Bear Yourselves Valiantly (http://www.bucksurdu.com/Buck_Surdu/LSNC__FAM.html). The picture above is of figures that are actually from their ancient figure lines.  These are listed under both the […]
