Lock Up Your Sideboard – The Raiders are Coming!

In fact Lard Island is already awash with Picts, Scotti and Irish raiding and nicking everything in sight. Fortunately they are only 28mm tall and we’re not having to nail down the furniture! Furniture? Yes, apparently so. I was reading an excellent book on the warfare of these warlike peoples and it quoted Gildas as complaining that the raiders were so hungry for loot that in a raid on his monastery they not only took his servants as slaves, but they also took the furniture from their dwelling! The ultimate Dark Age trip to Ikea possibly?
Anyway, we’ll be doing some previews of The Raiders supplement pretty soon, we’re just sending off the artwork for the card decks and getting the supplement formatted. For us the artwork has been key here. Part of the joy of the project has been the opportunity to research a period shrouded in mystery and, we hope, shed some light on those times. So, as a bit of a low-res sneak preview to get you in the mood for whipping out your coracle and heading off in search of a new coffee table here’s a look at the two main maps which will be part of the supplement.

All three are brimming over with ideas for Dux B, and are damn fine reads into the bargain. The Last Companion sets the last of Arthur’s warriors against a group of Scotti raiders, with some nasty ‘painted men’ lurking in the background!

Uhraaaah! Well, nearly…

At last the stuff arrived from Warlord and I’ve been able to crack on with some additional support units for my Chain of Command Soviet SMG platoon. The Scout section was my main priority as Artizan only have four Scouts in their set and this is really about as much use as a chocolate tea

So, on with the Russians. But the order from Warlord still hasn’t arrived so I have been somewhat restricted and been scratching around to find some other bits and bobs for the “gotterdammerung” campaign projects. I was able to complete the anti-tank rifle team… …and two three man flamethrower teams The Soviet flamethrower is an

Further to our encounter with the forces of Strudelheim, Oberst von Sekka was both elated and yet frustrated.  There could be little doubt that the Strudelheimers were in some disorder and, whilst we had suffered some losses, we were in fine shape.  Our men were much enthused by the victory, and still there was the
