Chariot Fun

Just a quicky.
And they're off!
This week I had the pleasure of helping MacSver continue playtesting the upcoming "Faustus Furious" chariot racing ruleset from Ganesha Games. With a 3 player game going on (controlling 2 chariots each of different types) great fun was had.

A Heavy Chariot forces it's way down the inside.
MacSver has already painted a lot of different chariots up to represent Heavy rigs, agile one and archer carrying setups. As you can see from the pictures he has also started on a custom demo table which will look fabtastic when finished.

Coming up to the final bend, but a mob of spectators
have run on. They must think it's all over...
I believe that the final editing and tweaking is being done. The rules are great fun with much crashing, spinning and careering going on the keep the races unpredictable.

Definitely one to look out for when they become available.

Painting Amera's Ruined Tower and Amphitheatre.

Itching to make a start on my Amera plastic I picked out the Amphitheatre and Ruined Tower (as couldn't resist the latter!). This is not so much a tutorial but more a work log, as everything did not go exactly to plan.

The Plastic Mountain

Well not so much mountain - more ruins. Like so many others recently it seems, I've made an order to Amera Mouldings for some ruins. This doesn't mean I'm ditching my Graffam ruins by any means, but I have a (too) small selection of "physical" ruins and wanted to add to them as a different option.

For the record: 1 x Ruined Chapel kit, 2 x Building Ruins, 1 x Amphitheatre, 1 x Temple Ruins.

Now we'll see if all the reports of the ease and speed that these paint up are all lies!!
