Hello again, Chris here with an update on my Dux Brit progress, and a couple of other odds and ends.
I'm afraid my progress on my Dux forces is a bit lacking. I have only managed to finish 4 additional figures, all Saxon warriors.
I don't think they turned out to badly, though the one on the right is a bit odd. After going ahead with a red and blue paint scheme for him, with yellow edging on the tunic, I realized he reminded of Superman's costume. It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Super Saxon!
Though I didn't make any more progress in painting, I have got the whole lot of Saxons and Britons cleaned up and based, so I'll be pressing on again soon.
In a diversion from this project, I pulled out some of my "Back of Beyond" figures from Copplestone Casting. I've been reading a bit about this era recently, including the Bloody White Baron by James Palmer. I was thus inspired to paint up the Mad Baron figure from Copplestone (well, at least the mounted version).
As with all the Copplestone figures I've worked on, he was fun to paint, with loads of character. Might have to add a few Mongol horsemen to ride alongside him.
I always wanted to mention a new rules book I recently purchased, Pulp Alley.
I have not had a chance to play it yet, but I like what I have read so far. Looks to give an entertaining game of pulp adventure, with a small teams of 5 to 10 figures to a side. I first heard about it over on the Lead Adventure Forum , where you can read some excellent after action reports on the game.
Well, that's all for now. Thank you again for your kind attention, and until next time, carry on gaming!
