Ok, ok, the actual title of the rules from Two Hour Wargames is Warrior Heroes to Be King - but Amazons don't have kings! At long last I'm trying out the game which is a new edition of one of my favorite games, Rally Round the King. And with RRtK being one of my most… Continue reading Warrior Heroes to Be “Queen”
I've finished a big batch of Amazons and now have enough for the two armies I've rolled up to play a game of Warrior Heroes to Be King from Two Hour Wargames. If you are not familiar with Warrior Heroes to Be King or Rally Round the King, each army has a core of required… Continue reading Amazon Update Number 4
As I've mentioned a few times, Acheson Creations is closing its doors. They produce some of the finest resin terrain pieces I've ever seen. I've made as many purchases as I could afford since learning of Craig Acheson's upcoming retirement. I've concentrated my purchases on African terrain and miniatures. Every single piece has been excellent… Continue reading The Granaries
Mary Canary calls an audible. I can hear you now, "Floozy, it's baseball season, are your Rangers doing that bad?" Maybe the Rangers are in a slump (ok, they're tanking), but CVL, the science fiction football game from Two Hour Wargames is about to be released in a couple of weeks. The release is so… Continue reading Are You Ready for Some Football?
This week I finished rebasing and touching up five more units of Amazons. Only eight more units to go before I have two armies for a Warrior Heroes to Be King game. You may notice there are six bases - I split the cavalry unit into two bases simply because I've found placing four to… Continue reading Amazon Update #3

My short-term goal is to paint or rebase enough Amazons to play a game of Warrior Heroes to Be King by the end of the month. With this update, I'm nearly half-way there. I need 22 units (11 for each army) and I've finished 9. A longer goal is to paint and/or rebase all of… Continue reading Amazon Update #2
DIY Termite Mounds The first piece of jungle terrain I've chosen to build is a set of termite mounds as scatter terrain to block line of sight. These clusters are quite common in Africa and in the case of the Azande, termites were and still are a part of the diet. There is even an… Continue reading Termites!
Each evening when I check the stats for my blog, I'm a little saddened by the number of dead links people have clicked on. My blog has ten years' worth of posts. There are older ones, but I've taken everything older than ten years offline. But each week someone clicks on a link to a… Continue reading Piathoe’s Peaks Available Again!
In addition to the Amazons that need to be rebased, I've discovered I have at least one hundred Amazons that still need to be painted, some are still on the sprue waiting to be assembled. Amazons from Wargames Foundry, Eureka, Fenryl, and Wargames Factory are in the "pile of shame." I need some diversity in… Continue reading Amazon Update #1
Mistress of Time, Episode 5 * Note: This story was developed from a WHAT Wandering Encounter. This encounter is the first of two making up a Guard a Traveler Job. The party had been hired to escort Boris Goddur, an apothecary, from Clerseau to Orlogne in the Border Kingdom. The Possible Enemy Forces (PEFs) could… Continue reading Starting for Orlogne
I needed another troll for an upcoming WHAT (Warrior Heroes Adventures in Talomir) encounter. I found this one in my pile of unpainted miniatures. It's an Ice Troll from Reaper Miniatures Bones line. Once I found a color scheme I liked, it was pretty easy to paint. Let me know what you think. As always,… Continue reading Ice Troll
