Circular Lego arena

This isn’t a Lego Colosseum but only a ring of bricks. And it is characterised for Medieval times. In spite of all, I think that this could be a beautiful arena. Only the fact that Lego bricks are rectangular, and these ones create a ring, fascinates me. Well, it is something among a circular fortress, a fighting pit and an arena. It could become an amphitheatre with some little modifications. I found it here.

Axe and Brimstone is a project to create a new range of 28mm fantasy miniatures representing Demon Possessed Dwarfs and Halflings for the popular ADVANCED SONG of BLADES and HEROES game system. Of course, the miniatures can be used with any game system, including RPGs, or even just collected for the joy of painting them.

AXE and BRIMSTONE is a narrative campaign for you to use these miniatures in ADVANCED SONG of BLADES and HEROES. It will tell the story of the Possessed (a group of evil, demon-worshipping dwarves) that are trying to summon their dark masters to the material world. In order to gather enough magical energies to open the gates to Zo, the region of the Netherwhere (Hell) where the demons are confined, the Possessed must offer a number of innocent souls in sacrifice. And what is more innocent than a village full of peace-loving, land tilling Halfling farmers?

ADVANCED SONG of BLADES and HEROES is the updated incarnation of the award-winning Song of Blades and Heroes miniatures system, which was funded in our previous Kickstarter, Hammer and Forge. With these rules, you can play fantasy skirmishes in any scale, with any models you already own. With an easy to use magic system, an exciting turn sequence, an optional background setting, weapon rules, an open-source point system, and combat mechanics that keep players involved at all times, there is no limit to the epic stories you can create. If you do not already own the rules, you can get them as part of this Kickstarter.

The sculpts for the initial 14 miniatures have been completed. The funds from this Kickstarter will be used for production molds, materials cost and to print the AXE and BRIMSTONE book and game mat. If we exceed our funding goal, we will expand the number of miniatures and scenarios in the campaign. Three weeks to go.

X-Wing in Canino

It was a long time that we wished to visit our friend Narciso in Canino, former Legio Palatina chap. During this Summer we found the way to do it. And to play with something all together. This time we try his last passion: X-Wing.

He and his local friends (two children too) have a huge collection of starships and cards to give them more customisation. I liked the two games that we played. I never tried it before. This is a Wing of War evolution without due credits. Too much cards maybe, I would prefer a straighter play. It is simple, please don’t do it complicated. However I died with infamy all the two times…

A beautiful day, with a pizza launch and friendship. A note: Andrea was involved in a Pokemon Go hunt with the two children too…

A Portuguese arena

After the calendar and the Lisbon report, we return to miniatures. But this post is still related to Portugal, where this nice arena was made.

The only negative critic is that the shape is not elliptical. I like most the entrances at the terraces, but all the realisation is great. Spikes on walls too. Here we have a real Roman arena! If you speak Portuguese language, or if you use Google translator, you can know more on this arena on:
