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
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
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
Figures for To Be King - 2 units of Valkae Warriors & 1 unit of Archers Unless you are the rare (to me anyway) type of person who has the remarkable ability to plan for the future, you will at some point have to rebase some miniatures. If you are new to the hobby, you… Continue reading Rebasing Miniatures – the Amazons
"Melanippe, navarch of Asteria, here presents her research so all that has happened to the Valkae Amazons might not fade from memory. May the deeds of the Amazons and the barbarian nations of men be sung, as well as the causes that led them to make war upon one another."- Melanippe, The Histories of Valkae… Continue reading Mapping Valkae, Part One
Gnolls Gnolls are large humanoid creatures resembling hyenas. In some parts of Talomir they are known as Hyenafolk. These creatures form packs and are seldom found alone. Packs typically range in size from 10 to 30, though larger packs, often called "tribes" have been known to be as large as 100 members. They are known… Continue reading Talomir Tales Gnolls for Piathoe’s Peaks
While making repairs around Floozy Manor, I did manage to sneak a little time to paint up a band of mounted Amazons for use with Piathoe's Peaks from Two Hour Wargames. I've had these miniatures for a while and finally kicked myself in the rear and got a few of them painted. The Amazons are… Continue reading Amazons for Piathoe’s Peaks
With the launch of Talomir Tales - Piathoe's Peaks, some of you may be wondering where are Piathoe's Peaks? Piathoe's Peaks is one of three mountain ranges on the island of Valkae, home of the Amazons. The largest mountain range is the Slumbering Dragons, a large impassable range of mountains that run east to west… Continue reading Where Are Piathoe’s Peaks?
The Talomir Tales series are adventures set in different parts of Talomir, the fantasy world featured in Two Hour Wargames fantasy games. Click on the link for more information. I will be shamelessly plugging these books.
Happy New Year, everyone! Things are marvelous, though a bit chilly, at Floozy Manor. I thought I'd start the year off with a review of a boxed set of figures from Reaper Miniatures. The initial boxed set, "Savage Beauty", and the individual figures began appearing shortly after the turn of the century, 2001-2003, and the… Continue reading Savage Beauty & Chicks in Chainmail!
