Mid-Orctober, I have a plan

Well either today or the 12th was mid-Orctober and I don't have much to show for it.

I have pulled out all the figures I would need to fight out The Altenburg Chronicles: A bridge over troubled waters, but I'm still on the fence about whether or not to play it out using actually WFB 3rd or Warrior Heroes: Armies and Adventures. I have actually played some WFB but 20 years ago. I haven't played WHAA yet but am more familiar with the THW mechanics and I want to use their reaction tables and PEF's (possible enemy forces) for playing the scenario solo. I salso still need to work out how animosity would work in WHAA. In fact I need to refresh my memory of how it worked in WFB.

Here are the figures I intend to use:

Capt. Stoischen and Garfunkel Gefahrlich

Fladnag as Paul Schuler

Artisan Hargrump

Hef's Bows

Hans' Xbows

Franz' Swords

Greediguts Boyz and Rumbleguts

Frinkelgob (banner) and Troll Catchers -4.

Durk

Snapjaw and Snagtooth

I also now have worked out a plan for the Tropilium vs Stygustan next battle. I will finish color blocking the forces before the next battle and I will get started on this right away.

So for Tropilium I need to finish color blocking 32 figures plus 5 horses and possibly 6 figures to crew the Ballista.

For Stygustan I need to finish 41 more figures, this includes the chariots as a figure although they are really more like 5 figures for each one.

So lets say 60 figures to finish color blocking. Most are partly blocked in already with flesh and uniform base color. To get this done by Friday I'd have to do 20 per day. Let's see what we can do.

    1. Hi Kasper, that troll comes with the Caesar Fantasy Adventurers F 104. He is about 55mm to the top of his head and 85mm to the tip of his raised fingers.

    1. Thanks Kevin, there really are some nice figures to be had. It is difficult to find figures for all periods but there is a lot of choice.

    1. Thanks WP, I hope I don't take too long to roll it out. Still a lot to do but I'm excited to try it out.

  4. Very nice. I would have thought that the THW rules more suitable for solo play, though any set can work if you're honest with yourself :-) .

    1. Hi Colgar, I am most likely going to play it solo or with kid help so I thought THW might be appropriate. Also to try and justify buying it you gotta play it at least once. But Warrior Heroes could be used face to face as well.

    1. Thanks Ts9k, I had a plan to use a lot of different beige and light brown on him. The wash I used muddied him up too much, but there he is.

  6. You have a plan, but you also seem to have some ambition, that's a lot of models on the table. Considering they're nice models and you seem well planned, I'm waiting to see the end of this ;)

  8. I know nothing about wargames, but I like your choice of figures!!
    it's not easy to find good figures for Fantasy in that scale!
    A very good mix of manufacturers ! (I've recognized Strelets, Caesar, an Airfix Robin Hood and can't remember the pink ones !! maybe others?)
