Then and Now: Bretonnian Archer

I first started playing Warhammer Fantasy in 1997. It was the magical age of "Herohammer" and goblin green bases. I first became interested in wargaming when a friend at school convinced me to start playing so he would have someone to play against. I started the painting aspect of the hobby when I received the wonderful 5th edition fantasy starter set for Christmas that year. In this blog post I will show you one of the first models I painted alongside a more recently painted Bretonnian archer from the same set.

Tutorial: Cheap fields for Flames of War

Today I will show you how to quickly and cheaply make fields for your tables. This method can be used for any scale of game. In this case, I built my fields for 15mm games but I think they would look just fine in 28mm scale games too. This project allows you to cheaply build lots of fields for your tables. I built 12 or so fields for about $4 worth of supplies.

Tutorial: $8 X-Wing space mat

After becoming interest in the X-Wing miniatures game I decided to try making a cheap and quick gaming mat to play on. This gaming mat cost me $8 in supplies and took me 40 minutes to make. In this tutorial I will show you step by step pictures for making your own mat. I used an airbrush for this tutorial but you could probably do a similar mat using spray cans. This mat does not look quite as polished as the professionally printed vinyl mats but is a cheap alternative for home games or if you are making many mats for a tournament or store event. Read on for some pictures of the finished mat and a step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own.

DIY Rivers

I recently finished a set of rivers for my Flames of War table. I made the rivers out of 1/8” medium density fibreboard, glue, sand, rocks, and a bit of balsa wood. The rivers will add some variety to my Flames of War tables.
