Finally starting to get started on these guys. Of course, I have a soft spot for the lowly humans in almost every game system. Bonus points if they are religious zealots and have access to fire or cool armour. I am not sure about the fire yet, but there are warrior priests and dudes in cool armour. Not these soldiers though.

These are the first stands of my Men-at-Arms. I had made the bases using clay or plasticard blocks, then I casted them in resin. I kept the masters, so the bases you see these buys on are the copies. It’s also a theme. I tried to make it look like a brick promenade they are marching/charging down. I wanted some variety, so I added some dirt patched and damage. The abrupt stop on the one side is actually going to be a water feature that my cavalry will be galloping through.

The scheme is inspired from the Knights of the Blazing Sun in Warhammer Fantasy, or bees.

Super excited to get my first game in.

My girlfriend and I decided to have a crafts day. We are making this cute guardhouse, design is inspired by a medieval structure.
Reggie is a lonely guardsman who lives attached to his post, guarding a forgotten river crossing in a non-descript grasslands. He maintains the guardhouse. He made himself a firewood stock shelter, patched up his door when it was attacked by a bear, and did the roof himself.
Materials used: cardstock, balsa wood, styrene, foamcore, random beads, and a plastic tree.
Phase 1 of construction complete. Next, we will be adding battlements on the tower, a roof to the connecting hallway, a brick road to the stairs, and dirt.

I call it,┬áThe SDE Transportinator. Complete with nigh-indestructible aluminum casing and girl repellant. I found this case and the foam at Walmart. Although, the foam isn’t as dense or good looking as the black foam and machine cutting that Battlefoam and similar companies use. This way, you get a working transport for a fraction of the cost.

I am going to add more pictures on the front to represent which expansions we end up getting.

There’s a lot of shoddy cutting and marks everywhere, but it works. It’s actually is able to hold everything we need to play (the entire starter set), plus 3 expansions (Fireflow Denizens, Rock Top Gang, and another Dragon’s Clutch), and it has a bit more room to fit another one.
