English Militia for Blood and Plunder, WIP

I have fallen in love with Blood and Plunder which means I have got into 17th/18th century wargaming, golly gosh. Well what was not to like as it is a Pirate game and the rules are jolly good too. I have two forces at the moment, the French and the English, with another one coming soon, the Spanish. Blood and Plunder is set at the start of Piracy about 1660s to 1690s and you can fight on land or at sea using the same rules. The ships are amazing and I will say more about them in a further post.

So I have started my final unit of English Militia with an officer. I think the green might be a little too bright but we will wait and see. As I get closer to finishing my last English Militia unit for Blood and Plunder and I'm happy with the results so far. Just the highlighting to do and then it's the Frigate. The uniform of the English Milita is based on the Coldstream Guards in Tangiers.

I have painted these chaps using the Army Painter method of block colours and dip, actually Strong Tone wash, as I want them on the table quickly and the finished results aren't that bad.

Until next time have a nice day

Waiting for Gangs of Rome

With Gangs of Rome coming out in January, I found my old Wargames Foundry Gladiators and started painting them. Never realised just how many I have. So looking forward for Footsore's game and figures.

Here are a little bit about the game.


Inspired by the history of the great city, Gangs of Rome takes place in the shadows of the Empire where the heads of ambitious houses have gathered fighters forged hard by the streets to do their bidding and enact their schemes.

As a Dominus, the head of a house of Rome, you will seek out the most brutal of Romes criminal denizens, plying them with the promise of wealth and glory should they aid you in your plan to rise to the Senate of Rome and cast down all enemies before you.

Closing about you like a ring of steel your gang will arm themselves and take to the streets and alleyways of the city, advancing your interests and crushing your foes.
Your strategies mixed with their savagery, mind and sword as one as you carve your name across the very pages of history.

This is your story, a tale wrought by your hand; you will rise on the backs of your fighters, gaining power and influence enough to change not only your future but that of Rome herself.

Recruit. Dominate. Ascend.

This is Gangs of Rome.
An innovative 28mm Skirmish game for the sharp of mind and bold of action.

Welcome to Rome Dominus.

Gangs of Rome is a historically inspired skirmish game from War Banner Ltd & Footsore Miniatures.

I am so looking forward to this.

Blood and Plunder Ship's Boat

For my sins I have discovered Firelock Games wonderful pirate game Blood and Plunder and I have fallen in love with the game. The rules are simple to learn but a bugger to learn all the nice little touches that make this game great. Oh yes there are Pirates.

My ship's boat for Blood and Plunder is finished and I'm happy with the way the wood has turned out. Funny how I dip my figures and paint the ships. What do you think?

I will be doing more on Blood and Plunder soon.
