Status: This list is still in concept. As soon as enough players are agreed, we can finalise this. We're starting a Halpi's rift campaign as soon as the Lockdown ends. As it is, the end of the lockdown is still (far) away in the Netherlands, so currently we can do little but start preparations. Therefore, … Continue reading Halpi’s rift hobby achievements
It's been a while since I posted a Hobby update. Due to our Covid-lockdown, I've had ample time to paint something, so I did. First I finished my Armada fleet: The fleet has finally been based and the ships are ready to sail! The only part missing were the bases, and these have been done … Continue reading Hobby update – Armada and Warcry
Shoutout to André for setting up his new blog! Welcome and grats! André is a friend of mine who started Kings of War just before the recent lockdown (talk about unpleasant timing). We played a few battles before a curfew was added to the lockdown and evening battles were -sadly- a thing of the past. … Continue reading Shoutout to André, welcome to a new blog!
Introducing my general for the Halpi's rift campaign - fluff Picture taken from Mantic's webshop Jarvis sat in the tavern, close to the fire. His wet cloak hung over a stool close by and the flames slowly warmed his damp clothing. He was cold and wet, both hands clasped around a cup of warm wine. … Continue reading Introducing Jarvis’ Judgment

General rules: The rift at the Halpi Mountains opens up the planes around Panithor which are the sources of magic. For those who fight for the lands' future, gaining control of … Continue reading Halpi’s rift general rules
Introduction As Covid still rages, the Netherlands are in lockdown. For our kings of War games, this stinks too, as little to no physical games are played. On the bright side, there's a wonderful opportunity to take a little hobby time at the moment. As soon as the lockdown ends, I'd like to start a … Continue reading Halpi’s rift campaign
Introduction Last week I started writing up a set of changes to make the Brothermark army a (more) valid and disctinctive army. This week, all changes have been compiled in a list comparable to the Clash-of-kings updates. Due to the Covid lockdown, playtests have been very limited. (a few minor skirmishes on my own gaming … Continue reading The Brothermark Revival (II)
The Abbess class ship of the line is my favourite model of Armada until now. The decoration on the bow, the ostentatious (but not too) rear castle, combined with an awful amount of sail, looks great to me. I'm also quite proud of the paint job. Two more pictures below. Now my ships have been … Continue reading I love the Abbess (ship) model
In the fall of 2020 I posted 2 articles about the Brothermark army list. I concluded with the promise to write up a few armies using this list. Until this time, I haven't done this yet. This is mainly because a) my games are limited and b) most of my armies use the Basilean list … Continue reading The Brothermark revival (I)
I painted up a couple of Armada Basilean ships, see the previous posts for the results. I was asked a few times how I did paint them (especially the sails), so this blog post shows how to. Preparation First, before touching any paint brush, prepare the ships. As the ships are resin, you'll need to … Continue reading Armada – painting tutorial
