Beautiful terrain and figures! Love 54mm games… Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

Yes, that is simply breathtaking. Your terrain especially is extremely impressive – love those (cork?) ravines and gullies you have created.

And it really can't be said enough: there is something very special about 54mm. Thank you for giving us a peep!

That is AWESOME! thumbs up I have the same 54mm figs for the Afghan wars. Need to start knocking them out. Bought that Afghan Fort from AIP too.

I love the game! Great job.

Eric, what a fantastic looking game! Great to Alastair's figures in action again too.

Anthony…might be a ruleset to try with you and Mike sometime.

And my write up of the game is now on my blog…

Hi Alastair,

Having read your write up on your blog I have been inspired to order all three Fistful of Lead rules currently available (I'm now aware that a sci-fi version is in progress). I would certainly like to try them out with you in the near future.

Got to love 54mm – I followed both your blog, and Shed's, hoping to see the Naps were also 54mm but sadly it was not to be…

Nicely done.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys – most of the credit should go to Alastair for putting on the game and letting up play with his toys…

English Thegn – the rules are dead simple and work across many genres – the guys on the LAF are running a version called Fist Full of Garlic – this involves Vampires

If you want to join in the fun at the Shed just ask Alastair – you would be more than welcome

Been a long time since I've seen the big boys out of the box. Marvelous minis and superb table.

English Thegn28 May 2018 10:56 a.m. PST


Very kind of you-it's an offer I can't refuse!

SgtGuinness29 May 2018 6:45 a.m. PST

Beautiful table and figs! Looks like a great time was had.
