Of the various fun things I recieved, here's what I thought you all might be interested in;
Firstly, the latest set of rules from Osprey Publishing, Dragon Rampant.
This is a fantasy set of rules based on their Lion Rampant rules. Both are aimed at doing games of around 40 to 60 figures a side. The fantasy rules use the same rule set, but add the typical fantasy tropes. The system has a nice way of customising units and you are encouraged to determine the stats of your force, though there are some army lists included.
I am hoping to get a game in soon at which point I will give more of a review.
Another Osprey book, and the first in a series (Dwarf Warfare is out soon). Given my love of orcs I couldn't resist this. Its great fun, with some lovely artwork. I might even borrow some of the ideas next time I need an orc tribe in D&D.
This might not be gaming related, but it's the last chance to get a new Terry Pratchett book. I sort of don't want to finish it, because then there will never be that experience of starting a brand new Discworld novel.
I have been working on a terrain project for Frostgrave and also to use on the table top in wargaming. It's based on a cheap toy I picked up on eBay, pictures when it's finished.
I also managed to get a little bit of painting in, both Son and I have been painting Reaper Bones, just for the fun of it. I am also hoping to play some more Dungeon Saga.
I think the next post should be a look back at 2015, to see what I have managed to get done, and what I still need to finish.
So a Happy Hogswatch, and don't forget to leave the turnips out for the Hogfather's boars.
