Close-up of one of the bases

Inspired by EonsOfBattle’s Highway Base Video I set out to make my own for my Black Templar Killteam.

Speedpainting treasure tokens for Frostgrave

Size comparison of a chest to a 25 mm base

Recently, I’ve been getting into Frostgrave, a skirmish wargame by Joseph A. McCullough. In it, two warbands, each led by a DnD-like wizard, venture through the frozen city of Felstad trying to loot the thawing treasures before others do it.

A miniature for every week of 2022

I really do enjoy painting miniatures, be it for Warhammer, DnD or just for personalised gifts.

Learning and Teaching

This article describes my homebrew system for learning and teaching skills (weapons/tools/etc) or languages (including Druidic and Thief’s cant). I assume that the player has a source of knowledge, either another being that is proficient in that skill or a scripture containing the relevant knowledge.
