Dreamblade Repainted

Hundvig Fezian is not a real big fan of pre-painted minis, and he positively despises randomly-packed "collectable" ones - so why is he writing this article?

I've been slowly pluggin' away at creating some late 19th-century "imagi-nations" for my steampunk/VSF wargames to take place in.

I've written up some thoughts and inspirations here if anyone is interested:

I read this on Facebook intriguing map. A lot of fun making the backgrounds, I bet.

Too much fun! When you write 10,000+ words on an imaginary world to play games with plastic toy army men it may be a sign of madness…

I love it! And I thought I was being OCD by giving my Imaginations regiments animal mascots!

Looking forward to the next chapter

Haha at least you're not inventing entire new calendar systems…

Don't give him any ideas…

Your game on the floor reminds me of when I was a kid. Thumbs up.

I'm surprised you didn't have Vordis made from green cheese.

@79thPA Thanks! Figure I'm mentally still at the same level so why not keep playing the same way?

@ColCampbell Where do you think all the stinky gas comes from? :)

Fantastic work, sir! My hat is tipped to you. The Furstenberg battleship, Queen Titania, passes by the port city of Guarmano in diplomatic review. The crew salutes from the masts and deck, and after three hearty huzzahs, they sing the old sailor song of "Steering for home by the green glow of Vordis".

@cturnitsa Much obliged, sirrah! The battery at the old coastal fort fires a jubilant return salute.

…now I just need to finish work on those flags.
