After a long hiatus from writing about crafting wooden soldiers Matt Kirkhart has joined me on my blog Wooden Warriors (https://wooden-warriors.com) to showcase his work in crafting wooden fantasy figures, dungeon tiles, and accessories. Hopefully this will only be the first of many articles on how he crafts his … crafts. Here is a taste:

Those are awesome!

That isn't the same Matt who ran an ancients game with wooden figures (Egyptians v Hittites I think) at a historicon like 6 or so years ago?

Nice! I like the idea.

Can't get to the wooden warriors site. Anyone else having problems?

Grignotage, yes I do believe he ran that game. He and John Acar ran Zama with wooden soldiers in 2012 at Cold Wars. I ran a wooden DBA army at that same convention.

How cool is that?
Love those skellies!

Very cool! If I lost all my figures in a disaster I think this would be the direction I'd go in.

Dale is correct. We did do Zama several years ago…2012! Time flies! And Matt did the Egyptians as well as successors starting a couple of years before that.

And Dale's Wooden DBA army was a sight to behold! Really well done!

Thanks John. I really liked your Carthaginians too. I was just looking over the pictures on the blog the other day.

I remember also trying out a French INdochina game with Matt, which got me into that period. Quite the dangerous gamer!

That was quite a fun game! I was particularly impressed with how Matt's rules handled Roman line relief.

For those who are interested, the game at Barrage went very well, I had a great group of players. Three folks who I already knew and three new people who were wonderful. It's funny, Buck was letting me know that my target audience of kids should be finishing up a "giant ape" game (which looked very cool by the way!) in time to get in on my Craftee Dungeon Quest game with these figures. I did get a full house of 6 players, but every single one was an adult. Ha, ha!

Thanks everyone for the positive comments. As usual, go to Dale's blog to get the most recent stuff, including a brief after action report of the Barrage game I ran with these little guys.
