Cult of Odin

When I was to Salute 2015 I, Jonas and Dan mersey visited the British Museum. Dan gave us a realy good and interesting guided tour and also gave us each a replica of the Lewis Chess Piece "The Berserker" as a gift. Sins I got it from Dan I have always wanted to use it for some Viking wargaming project, but I havent got around doint anything about it untill this summer. At first I thought I would do a stone statue of of him but then I got the idee of a more daring build, there I would turn the chess piece in to a Cult place for Odin, after all Odin was the good for the Berserkers, so I modeled it as sculped direct out of an old oak.

Unfortunate my camera broke down so all my WIP pictures was lost, but here you have a bunch of pictures of the finished model.

Prussian Infantry - Franco-Prussian War

I planned to post these pictures about a week ago but was interupted by a phone call... my son David and my wife had been in a severe car accident, some dude thought it was a good ideea to skip a stop sign, so my wife and son hit his car right in the side in 90km/hour... 

I have spent the last week at the hospital with my Son thant got the most severe injuries of the two. My beloved wife got a fracture in her foot and ofcours a real beating by the crach, David broke an arm, fractured a finger on the other arm, got face damages, fractured jaw, 3 teeths dislocated, a minor damage on the liver and a general beateing by the crach so he had to have intensive care and several operations fixing his arm, teths, the liver damage they had under observation for a week and there was no need for surgery.. 

It seems like we can go home from the hospital tomorrow, he are bored so I guess he is recovered quiet well considering all damages.  

I´m so glad they survived at all in that speed.

Prussian infantry from the Eagle of Empire range, except for the mounted officer that are a official Hamburger Tactica mini.

Giant Spider

One more monster from the Wizkids range of D & D minis, this time a Phase Spider (SKU: 72572) for £4. 

Below a 3D-render of the spider.

The Dwarfs in the pictures are the Osprey/North Star multipart plastic dwarfs that are in the pipeline. I based the Giant Spider on a 60mm base, the single based Dwarfs are on 25mm.

Eagle of Empire infantry rulebook out now as .pdf

My matey Sören has just released his Eagle of Empire rule, Rulebook 1: Infantry Skirmish dedicated to support his 28mm Franco-Prussian war miniature range.

The rules are avaliable in .PDF file at the moment in the EoE webb shop.

Even if i´m a bit bias I must say Sören made a great work on the rules, they give fun, fast and intence games, especially the layout of them, looks great.

Some side spread samples below.

Empire of Eagle also started a collaboration with North Star Miniatures and have just released a fist box with North Star Franco-Prussian War minis in the Prussian Jägers box of 2 squads.

Boxed set of 16 Prussian Jägers, with 12 skirmishing action poses and 4 command figures incl. bugler, officer and troop card.

Recognised by their special shakos and dark green uniforms, the Jäger units were the elite light infantry of the Prussian army during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71.

In the Eagles of Empire Rules, the Jägers will feature some expert firing abilities, keeping the French advance at bay with their marksmanship.
