Orctober progress, life, gaming and giveaway !!

Welcome to the newest member of the longship, going by the name of Arrg. I could not find a blog so if you could post a link in the comments that would be good.

Its been a funny old week here, I have mostly been floored by some virus that has seen me with a streaming cold and eyes that refuse to open properly and unable to work for the last six days.

I managed to get it together enough and went to +kevatthecabin for my weekly dice fest and lets just say I rolled badly for the most part, I did follow instructions and saw my forces disintegrate before my very eyes.
and a write up of the game can be found HERE.

Before the virus claimed me I had been working on improving my flexible river design. I wanted to obtain a rippled surface and also see if the widths could be adapted to suit.



Apologies for the quality of the above pictures, but as you can see I managed to get the look I wanted so I shall expand this into a full set.

Next came a couple of hours work on the next addition to the Orctober fest last night again this needed final highlights to complete the model. Savage Orc standard bearer.





The final Item for this post is the discovery of a new blog and a great giveaway being held there so pop over and visit Palouse Wargaming Journal.

  2. I like the stream. Would these be compatible with the old JR Miniatures range?

    1. Very doubtful it would be compatible my products are not made based on designs of any other works.
