These Toy Soldiers are a gift to my Nephews Will and Tucker.
I painted them as Canadian Soldiers 1944 Uniform because their Great Grandfather served with the North Shore Regiment as part of the D-Day invasion.
Six intrepid privateer captains had gathered at a small French Port in the Caribbean hoping to stage a major raid on a British Convoy. The Royal Navy has gotten wind of the plan and has sent ships to keep them in check. As the number of ships increases the captains decide its best to break out on as a group then scatter.
Captain Rioux meanwhile lead his men in a savage hand to hand battle with the HMS Aeolus and managed to take her. He then managed barely to escape the table with HUM Belvedere in pursuit. Still a stern chase is long chase and Captain Rioux managed to slip away in the end with his prize.
My proposed path
Hall of Traps: then on to The Pit of the Pendulum: from there I will need a teleport to The Chamber of Darkness and on to the Aquifer and on the Level 2
I'll star at the Adventures Landing then go toe the Shrine, Oubliette then the Tomb and on to
I'll start at the Knights solar then Teleport to the Treasury, then Teleport again to the Hall of Heroes, then on to the Graveyard Beach. Finally, a Teleport to the Alter of the Snow lord. (or something like this, no plan survives first contact with the enemy!)
I am once again taking part in the Winter Painting challenge. I have set myself a target of 1000 points but this year I am focused on finishing projects rather than racking up points.
If time allows, I want to also get my Jacobite’s painted up I really want to be able to field them for some game once we come out of this Covid thing. I've got some other odds and ends handy once the map of the challenge and its rules are revealed.
The other night I was running a test game in preparation for the Let's Roll Game "Day" this weekend. One of my players Will Hunter made a comment about getting me the Terrors of the Deep Set for an Xmas gift. I, thinking he was joking, said I would rather get the Scenery pack. Well two days later it showed up at my door. Apparently Will wanted to thank me for running line games during the pandemic. This was utterly unnecessary as I ran the games as much for myself as for anyone else. That said it was a very generous thing to do and I shall have to think on how to return the favor.
The is a very nice addition to my collection. I briefly considered modifying the Martello tower to detach the batteries around the base. In the end I decided not do this.
I look forward to getting them painted up and putting them on the table.
