Star Wars 1917: A Brave New Hope

While looking at the terrain for the Battle of Towton, the idea came up for using it as a canyon for the Star Wars destroy the Deathstar. I thought it would look good being set in 1917 with biplanes. Here's what I managed to achieve.

The Good Guys

On the left is Sir Lucas Wingwalker's Sopwith X-wing. On the right is Red's DH2 Y-Wing.

The Bad Guys

On the left is the Albatross Tie fighter and on the right Baron Von Vader, the Black Baron's Fokker Tri-fighter.

The Deathstar balloon and guard.

Close up showing the Emperor and his personnal guard, as well as two units of Imperial Guard.

All the models are 1:72. We are going to use the rules from Wings of War to play the game. Hopefully it may make an appearance at Baccus's Gamesday on Sunday 22nd July. Provided we finish The Battle of Towton early enough.

Albion Forever

In the last of these three entries we have the latest updates to the Forces of Albion, for our ongoing Sci-Fi campaign.
As Albion pushes into space, the role of policing the spaceways, requires a special force. With this in mind the Albion Space Service was created. On the right we see the regular forces and on the left the Powered suits.
These are the Galahad Knights a unit whose members work solo or in small groups behind enemy lines.
These are the first two aircraft of the Albion Air Force.
And finally we have the heavy stuff. On the right the artillery and on the left the new jump capable power armour.

Warheads and Saxons

For Christmas I got some of Urban Mammoth's Warheads figures. I've been looking at these for a while and couldn't quite decide about the cartoony sculpts. I'm a definite convert they are full of character and easy to paint. Now to get around to playing the game.
This is the beginnings of my Saxon Army for Impetus. Hopefully they should get to be used in anger soon. February has been a bad month for playing games :-(.

Black Powder Punk Game Getting there

This is the first two complete pieces of terrain for our Black Powder Punk Game (BPP). Hopefully we should be playing this in the very near future. It is set in the 1700s on the fictitious continent of Pacifica. This has been colonised by the royalist exiles from the English Civil War. More on the background when the game is played.
This is the new terrain with it's wharf at the front and warehouse.

These two picture show some of the figures for the game, including the Topknots who are native to the land and are plant based.
