Other gamer's projects to keep an eye on:

I always get a juvenile excitement when I see new gamers take an interest in my games and start a new project. I get a similar joy watching my almost three year old son make me a fajita, but that is another story.

I've recently stumbled across a couple of new projects that are worth keeping an eye on.

The Song of Blades and Heroes friendface page was recently treated with a couple of shots of Keith Finn's 15-20mm scale city for Song of Shadows and Dust. A really simple but effective use of paper mache boxes bought from a craft store. I with I had thought of that.... Keith doesn't appear to have a blog of his own, but here are the photos for those who missed them on friendface.

Secondly, Paul of Paul's Bods has been posting up more pictures of his wonderful 1:72/20mm Roman city which would put a museum display to shame. I have previously shown off some of his work here - the 1:72 scale Roman civilians/Christians, and am delighted that he is talking of using Song of Shadows and Dust to play games in his city.

Thirdly, DoctorPhalanx is starting a 15mm Irregular Wars: Conflict at the World's End project that I think will be worth following. He has a nice wee blog HERE which is well worth a gander. The Doc plans on starting with a mixed pair of 16th century Irish and Royal English forces which is grand as that is where the whole game started. It also reminds me that I still need to fix up my own Royal English...

Lastly (and a bit of a late edit), Joshua over at Le Coq Fou has just posted a lovely update showcasing his Spanish Colonial and English Adventurer battles for Irregular Wars. Joshua's stuff is always very impressive and I attach a couple of taster shots below. I must find out where his little cannon came from....


  1. Many thanks for the plug - I'll have to go through with it now! You know some rules are going to be good just from reading them and I'm quite excited to get started.

    1. Ah yes... my brilliant plan is obviously working.
