What a week! Last weekend saw a fantastic game of Battlefleet 1900 with Scipio, Coldsteel and Ollie - keep your eyes peeled on the Palladian Guard blog for more. The burnout of March has well and truly gone, with productivity and sheer bloody enjoyment at a high.
I'm finally getting a Mordheim warband together to face-off against Scipio's Vampire Counts and Coldsteel's Last Watch. My original plan had been a band of Stirland deserters with A Field in England psychedelic, folk horror element - but decided this was too similar to my Mawdryn Space Marines.
Time for a rethink then. I'd already bought one of my favourite GW miniatures of all time, the Mordheim Freelancer Knight. His Don Quixote look gave me the idea to assemble a ragged band of Estalians. I thought this was reasonably original, but saw that Victoria of Victoria Miniatures had won the Australian Golden Demon with this incredible Estalian Inquisition warband in 2000 (which I must have seen in the UK WD back then). In the past this would have put me off, but I decided 'sod it', Estalians it would be.
