Uncle Rogipoos and Jose survey their new premises!
A few weeks ago Tony Harwood asked me to do him a little favour. What is it you ask! To send on a gift to Roger Willcox, or as he is better known to the Notables Yahoo Group ‘Uncle Rogipoos’. I was delighted to do this for Roger as he is a very entertaining and stand up fellow who often makes me laugh with his crazy tales of adventure on the group. Also to help out Tony who is a very talented modeller and fan of Flintloque. Above you can see the item which was the gift. The coop of the Were-Chickens of Beesdone. I could not resist having a look and taking some pictures. This image shows the coop along with Uncle Rogipoos and his pet Armadillo Jose, two miniatures from the VLE10 set based on Roger’s characters.
I can say that Roger got the gift in perfect time for Halloween as Tony asked me. He did open it a day early and I accept the blame for this as a recent bad head cold made me forget to email Roger and tell him not to open it to the 31st! But hey ho. I know Tony is planning a book on his wonderful terrain, perhaps the coop will feature in it.
Tony’s Headless Zombie conversions
Craig Andrews has posted the last of the three parts of Tony Harwood’s ‘Headless Undead Fun’ arc for Flintloque over on Barking Irons Online. I have been wating for this for a wee while and indeed both he and Tony have put notes on the final scenario explaining the delay and what was going on. I am more than excited on this and have been patiently await it.
You can see scenario three entitled Getting Ahead Part Three – Just Get me the Hell out of Here! now. It is a cracking ‘steeplechase’ format scenario that sees Acting Captain Margahrah and his section try to cross several boards while the Undead try to stop them and prevent the wretched Halfling Posco from escaping their clutches. From there you can follow the links back to parts one and two.
The fiction in part one is well worth a read on its own and it explains why these Headless Shamblers exist and just what is at stake as the Ferach Grande Armee tries to retreat from the flaming hell of frzon Moskova and the Witchlands.
The first Headless Shamblers
Sometimes it takes time for elements to come together and for articles and material that wargamers are waiting on to be completed (I know this I think better than most!) but it is worth the wait and once more Tony Harwood with a little help has given us all some Flintloque gold. I hope he keeps his head!
My good friend and wargaming terrain professional Tony Harwood has put up a micro review of my title 5027 Grapeshotte 3rd Edition over on his Dampf Blog. Tony has been a fan of Flintloque right from its very beginnings in the middle of the 1990′s and while he does not play the game he likes the background material (he is the creator of Foul Mouth Freddie) and the community (being an active member of the Notables Yahoo Group) and he paints and even designs miniatures for Flintloque all from his studio.
So pop along and look at the micro review but also take a bit of time and look at the posts tagged with Flintloque. Your gaming mind will thank you.
2o Bellalugosi Line – Mama Mia!
‘Mamma Mia!, Toni has a made a lotta fussa over us’a!’ ‘Whatta we gonna do!’
Well I do not know about the Todoroni but I for one am going to give a round of applause. Tony Harwood modeller and Flintloque fan has finished his June pledge and very nice they are too. A set of 56505 Todoroni Militia from Alternative Armies. You can see the final post in the series on the pledge over on Tony’s blog and from there trace them back to the start. Check out the image above ‘itsa very nicea’.
Since joining Blogger I have been able to watch this pledge on screen developing from its unpainted origins to finished over a few weeks and it has entertained me; hence this little posting.
