Quick update. Most of my time is going into the "new" game room construction so hobby time has been slim. I will post a series of photos on that soon. Anyhow, decided to modify the sword figure with a new arm. The spear point is pointing at the pin I made for this mod. Tip: I use small JT-21 size staples for pins. Just cut to length and they easily fit most micro drill hole sizes. Mounted the arm with spear and then for coolness drilled a hole in the bottom of a head and then glued it to the top of the spear! I let it dry a few minutes then placed both on a nice Warlord size base. I'm ready for primer and paint!

I joined "The Santa Clause" project this year. Cris Stoesen is organizing this and thanks goes out to you! I have to produce a fully completed project that doesn't cost more than $10.00. I am excited to be part of this and after looking through my secret person's blog site I decided to produce a command set for a dark age period game. It will be in 28mm and be flexible enough to game Saga, Dux Brit and/or any other dark age skirmish game.
First sneak peek. I assembled several individual figures for the set. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to use all three figures or just the two metal ones. I want it to stand out so I'm not sure if I want to include the plastic horn blower (from Gripping Beast's Dark Age Warriors set). Three may be a crowd and the base may be two big. I like it though so I'm gonna try it. Anyways, the warrior is a Warlord Games Day figure I picked up at the show while the other is a Gripping Beast Warlord. I drilled a hole in his hand so he can hold a long spear with a banner. The warrior will be modified to hold a spear with one of the heads on the tip, OF COURSE! So I will work on this stuff and post soon with the mods.

Great convention in Springfield, Ohio this weekend. It is a HMGS Great Lakes chapter con. I played in the SAGA tournament with my brother Ted. He place second and I placed third. He bested me by one technical (slaughter) point!! I was so engrossed in all the games that I only remembered to take photos in the very last one. I played Vikings and am happy with the way they played. I took a few photos.

My berserkers on the hill attempt a last dig assault on the mounted knights.
The game ended with the remaining mounted troops and their warlord killing my warlord. Fudge!! Great game and I learned a bunch.
Some additional photos of a couple games below.
These pics are the 15mm Alamo game run by Gettysburg Soldiers.

Great time. I just wish I would have taken more photos!
