The Rancher’s Daughter, the Madam and … the Zombie Stripper? – Tales from the Paint Table

Following last week's SCW Nationalist HQ, this week saw a more eclectic batch of miniatures coming off of the paint table. The Rancher's Daughter & the Madam Returning to the Old West theme, I finished two figures from Shadowforge - the Rancher's Daughter and the Madam.  Shadowforge is now sold by Eureka Miniatures.  I bought… Continue reading The Rancher’s Daughter, the Madam and … the Zombie Stripper? – Tales from the Paint Table

Amazon vs. Amazon at the Dawn of the 20th Century

Today was my birthday and that means it was time for the annual Amazon vs. Amazon battle.  This year, I played the game with a twist - instead of being set on Valkae, I chose to set the game on Colonial Lemuria in the Kingdom of Nobelongga - the year is 1900. The queen has… Continue reading Amazon vs. Amazon at the Dawn of the 20th Century

Sweeping the Jungle

Not a single building was harmed and the raid was repulsed.  Jelani, the chief's son, proposed that they immediately sweep the jungle and drive any Niambo back across the border.  With the rest of the village's men still away, Jelani's force consisted of one unit of men and four units of women warriors. They set… Continue reading Sweeping the Jungle

Lair of the Lioness

The patrol had been a disaster.  Isawannayu had been defeated and had barely escaped with her wounded.  Ode's group met a worse fate.  Her group fought until they were all incapacitated, one of her women paid the ultimate price.  However, instead of being captured by the Niambo, the Niambo men disfigured the women's faces with… Continue reading Lair of the Lioness

Rebuking a Lioness

After driving off the Niambo, Isawannayu led the women to a village where the chief had been a close ally of her father.  Chief Bosede allowed the women to stay and heal.  Lesedi, Nomusa and Dayo all recovered from their wounds.  Isawannayu asked the chief to aid her in deposing her uncle, but the chief… Continue reading Rebuking a Lioness

A Goat with Teeth

Isawannayu was still fuming when she leapt upon a large rock outcropping to peer into the jungle. Her uncle had become chief after her father died under mysterious circumstances. Her stepmother was now one of his wives. Something wasn't right and when she questioned him about it, he consigned her to be "sacrificed for the… Continue reading A Goat with Teeth

Like most miniature companies, it is a small one man shop, in this case, Jason Moses way out in El Paso. Jason produces figures ideal for use in the late Victorian/Edwardian period, the closing years of the 19th century and… Continue reading Hinterland Miniatures

Pinafore Diary, Part 1 – The Little Brown Book

Grams looked radiant as they wheeled her into the sun room. She literally beamed joy, which made me feel a little guilty that I didn't come see her more often. It was hard to believe that in a few short years she would be one hundred years old. It must have been contagious as I… Continue reading Pinafore Diary, Part 1 – The Little Brown Book
