Well it's been an eventful couple of weeks here as my Endless: Fantasy Tactics project has almost completed the building stage and I just need to paint and photograph the sculpts I've done before getting some games in. Handily I've mislaid the charger for our camera so it may be a few days before I track it down!
In other news, I've been having a bit of a ponder about what to do with Leviathan. My original plan was to go for 15mm scale for the mass battle as it's a good combination of detail and size but lately I've found myself perusing some smaller options.
Firstly, I have actually got a small force of Horned Folk in 6mm:
Horned Folk Warband
Horned Folk Taurian Heavy Infantry
Child of Leviathan
Made from a mixture of old Epic plastics and some Four A Miniatures monsters as well as a couple of heavily converted Irregular Miniatures rhinos, they look pretty good but do they have the sheer mass that I am looking for?
Maybe I should have based them on a 30x30mm square base with more mounted per base to give an impression of mass but I quite like the look of them and really need to flesh them out with some more bits and bobs. If import duties weren't so ridiculous, I'd consider getting some Microworld Beastmen but the expense is putting me off. The only other real option is Irregular and their strip style of figure in 6mm is a total pain to rebase...
I am thinking of moving the scale down again to the utterly teeny 2mm! Having looked at some of the armies folks have put together in the scale, I find myself rather tempted as it would really give a sense of an epic battle when viewed.
The problem is that at that sort of epic scale, I think I'd need to rework the rules to fit the sweeping nature of the game. With that in mind, I've been perusing Land Ironclads by Wessex games for some ideas and may try playtesting a small battle in the coming weeks using those rules to see how they work.
Needless to say, I'll be keeping myself busy for the coming months!
All the best!
