WIP, 15mm Native Americans and 15mm SYW Prussian infantry brigade, 23APR18

                                          WIP, 15mm Native Americans with various weapons

                                         WIP, 15mm SYW Prussian infantry brigade.

Selling of my Warmachine and WH40K armies....

I selling off my WH40K and Warmachine armies. The reasons are two fold. I'm into way too many periods for my own good. I decided to take the plunge and buy several hundred dollars worth of 28mm American Revolutionary War for use with British Grenadier.

I've been progressively getting rid of things. I'm keeping my 28mm Darkest Africa/British Colonials, 28mm Franco-Prussian War, 28mm Samurai/Koreans, 28mm Vietnam, and 15mm SYW.

In addition to the new Space Hulk game I still have in shrink wrap. I also have an entire unused 6mm Angolan and South African micro-armor waiting to be bloodied. With the American Revolutionary War stuff, that's enough to keep me occupied for quite a while...

Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson

Author:  Swords of Good Men.
Title:  Swords of Good Men.
PublisherJo Fletcher Books.
Copyright:  2013.
Pages:  256.

Overview and Impressions:
This historical fantasy book about Vikings was fun.  It took me a while to get into it.  However, once it started, I enjoyed it.  Set in 11th century Norway, two Vikings must put down those who'd still fight for the old pagan gods.  In the process, they meet the gods and their interweaving plots as they kill one of the sister spinners of fate.  Rather bloody piece of writing, but still good rollicking fun.
