Battle Report: Wolsung – Ash & Oak vs The Inventors

Well, things get little bit slow here once again. Too much stuff occupied my mind recently. Plus I got involved into organisation of first Polish Oldhammer Weekend (and this was time consuming). Meantime I was in Spain and Japan. And finally I prepare to hit the road again… So, sum of small things gave this blog little lag one more time. And pile of stories to be written and published is growing. No time for whining then – I better speed up with everything. Writing AND painting. So without further ado – next story coming your way. Today – another Battle Report – Wolsung game – my Ash & Oak vs Inventors (led by Dorota). The game was plyed in FGB Store in Warsaw. I played this game about 2 months ago, while I was in serious Wolsung  run. I was just after Wolsung 2. edition Inauguration Weekend and driven by ongoing excitement, I was in need for more games. So, just two days after a weekend I had the opportunity to play, so I …

Wolsung 2nd Edition Inauguration Weekend. Day 2 (Campaign)

As promised few weeks ago, today I have for you second part of my story from Wolsung 2nd Edition Inauguration Weekend. The event was held in Gdynia 23/24th July 2016, and it was full of so many attractions, so I decided to split my report for two separate posts. First part – from day one – the tournament – you can read here. Today, it’s time for something quite different – the campaign. Quick reminder. Wolsung Skirmish Game is a mixture of Victorian steampunk and fantasy. All the action takes place in the city of Lyonesse (version of XIX century London), where several factions fight for influence. Simple as that. Recently I fell for this game, and even though it’s not main stream, it will get the right place on my blog. First day was great. Four exciting games full of action and friendly atmosphere. Plus… I won the second price and the trophy for best painted club. It couldn’t got better than this. …but then. The second day of the weekend. Tired but still …

Wolsung 2nd Edition Inauguration Weekend. Day 1

Wolsung. This game is stuck in my head for quite some time now. And even it is not so popular like a few other skirmish games like Malifaux or Infinity, it gives me this special thrill like no game before. Awesome miniatures, reasonable entry level and nice, quick-to-learn rules. Say no more. Wolsung has all I need from miniature game. And Steampunk background! Did I mention the Steampunk background?! ❤ Long time readers of my blog probably are aware my affection to Wolsung miniature game, and there is no surprise, that once again I write a story about it. This time, I’m going to present the report from Wolsung 2nd Edition Inauguration Weekend. When I found out that such even will take place in Micro Art Studio (producer of Wolsung) HQ, in Gdynia, Poland (23/24th July 2016), I knew I need to be there at any cost. I changed my vacations plans to get there, so that has to mean something! My Ash &oak needed few final touches, so I spend few hours a day …

Painting Fever. Part 4

Oh, my… that was really long, unexpected break from painting. Many things stood on the way of efficient work. It’s probably too long and boring list of excuses to quote it here. I can only share one, but actually it’s part of the hobby too, so, let’s just say I’m excused. My excuse – I was painting a huge model. One of the biggest in my entire life probably. And it took me many hours, and believe me it’s still not finished. I would like to share all the progress and post WIP pictures, but it’s so close to finish line right now, so I decided to keep it until it’s done. What is it you ask? 🙂 Well, I’m going to keep it in secret for now and share it when it’s ready:). …and now, finally, after long, long break I got painting fever again. Today I have for you three minis painted during last two weeks. (I hope it’s going to be my permanent state, and fever will not get off). First is… …

Battle Report: Wolsung – Ash & Oak vs the Inventors vs The Triad

Aaagh, and another ‘long time, no write’ break in the blog. Of course, I could try to explain myself and I would find a few good excuses (like: I was out on two weeks road trip in Germany and France:), but it’s not the point. The thing is I have still a few stories to write and I should do this no matter what. Vacations? Please… that can wait – neglected blog should never happen. So, without further excuses – back to work. Time to get this thing back on track! Today, I have for you another battle report. This time – Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game. The game I played at the beginning of June in Warsaw’s Gentlemen’s Club and what’s really special about this – it was the skirmish between three players. Tomek, Paulina – thanks for great game! I played with my Ash & Oak vs Triad of Lotus Dragon (Tomek) and The Inventors (Paulina). No alliances. Everyone vs Everyone. Two heroes game. Scenario will be explained later in the text. Background Annual …

Painting Fever. Part 3

Hello there! I’m back with another batch of freshly painted minis. I haven’t got much time recently to paint, but during last 10 days I haven’t been entirely unproductive.  Oh, quite opposite – I resisted temptation of launching Warhammer: Total War and I dedicated all my free time to miniatures.  And that was crucial moment, believe me. New TW has any indications to be time vortex for me. I see myself getting into world of video games, and be lost, like, forever. And beside miniatures, I have family too! So, at least for now, thanks but no thanks. I say no to Total War. I stick to metal and plastic  (and resin:). It is enough fun:). What you see here is work I’ve done during last two weeks. Like I wrote, busy time right now – miniature painting has little bit lower priority at the moment. Despite that, I have this trio. Lady Ellendeane of Wolsung, Beastmen Shaman and Empire Catian for WHFB. That was the least I was able to paint recently. …but one …

Mr Cheng, at your service.

I believe I haven’t painted any of my Wolsung miniatures for quite a some time. The last were Steam Powered Dragonlings, and look at that, I’ve painted them in December 2015 and it was in the same area I’m at the moment. Koh Chang in Thailand is a nice island, perfect stop whenever I’m back here. Just few hours from Bangkok, cheap accommodation, delicious food, perfect weather and proximity to the beach. The best place  to stay for my last month in Asia. So, I’m back on Koh Chang. The circle of life is complete;) I can go back to Wolsung again… This time let me show you another model for Triad of Lotus Dragon faction – Mr Cheng. Mr Cheng is one of the heroes of The Triad, and my first of this crew. Generally I have my first faction (Ash & Oak) fully prepared, more or less ready for play, and the time has come to start something new for Wolsung. The Triad of Lotus Dragon is one of the coolest faction. If …
