15mm Battle Valor Medieval or Fantasy Civilians......

..............and some Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles!

Some 15mm civilians from Battle Valor, nice sculpts, perfect for fantasy and many other periods I believe.......

There were 15 in the pack but one angered me!





Attempted some size comparison shots, Khurasan, Battle Valor, CP Models, Battle Valor and Croms Anvil......


Met up with Daniel this week and while he was in Dublin with his girlfriend attending a concert he dropped in to Forbidden Planet and picked up Battlestar Galactica: Starship Battles starter box plus two extras fighters.
Slightly similar to X-Wing but more emphasis on movement, speed, kinetic energy and altitude, there is just 2D6 for shooting and damage is pulled from a stack of tokens with random damage score, another separate stack for collisions, more complicated than X-Wing, no shields, no saving throws, there are cards giving extra maneuver skills, firepower etc......

Took us a little while to get set up and ready but combat is brutal, game was over in 20mins, I destroyed one of my own craft by steering in to an asteroid, lost another to combat while still destroying his two vipers (some of the skill cards are evil).



Very pretty.......



These regulate all movement for you craft......a bit fiddly!


You can have named pilots like Starbuck but no unique cards giving them anything special other than a plus to the shooting dice.

Okay but I prefer X-Wing gameplay!

15mm Stone Trolls and how they got their name.....

......from CP Models, maybe for some Dragon Rampant shenanigans?

Stone Trolls because of their notorious artillery that hurls large stones at friend or foe, picked up a really cheap copy of Dragon Rampant and it seems to be a quick and easy set of rules!



The leader displays his brown dominant colour to show he's Boss/War Leader and a smack in the chops to anybody who thinks otherwise........


The massed artillery of the Troll Federation........



Some size comparison shots........

15mm CP Models Pulp or Fantasy Arabs......


Some Arab figures from CP Models, you get a couple of gun toting fellas as well but I left them out, not bad sculpts (a little clunky) and that mounted fella needs something in his hand but nice all the same........



Need a flag.........


These will be slavers, picked up some thralls and thrall carts from Croms Anvil!
