A quick post just to ensure my loyal followers I’m still alive up here in Edinburgh. The caring is going reasonably well and we finally have a date next week for my Father to move into a care home. Between my general caring duties I have managed to get quite a lot of painting done. The (poor) photo below shows the progress so far.

Sadly no big worms in this game. Followers will know I have been painting up some spare Tallarn figures bringing them together for a small Xeno Rampant force. With a few days at home George travelled up to give them a run out.
Xeno Rampant is obviously part of the lion Rampant stable of rules which we have played many times. It is more like LR than R&P but quite a few changes have been made around shooting ranges, some free activations etc… the main thing is the rules are incredibly flexible in terms of creating an army with basic stats for each troop type being easily adapted to create a bespoke force.
Hidden deep in the dungeon I have four 40k armies if you include the Tallarn imperials, these games can often collapse quickly I thought I would get three forces ready for George and we could play a couple of very different options. To some extent this was a great test of the rules for a mini campaign I am planning in the future.

I have spent another week up in Edinburgh on caring duties, but as much of my time is simply chatting and talking with my father I chose to take some painting with me, previous I only took figures to prep. The painting seemed to work well as we drink tea and chat away or occasionally listen to the radio. I hadn’t taken basing materials so I have been finishing things off since I got back yesterday.
Basically a completely mixed bag of things which were easy to carry and prepped ready to paint.

George came up for a battle to the dungeon and I was looking for a scenario to introduce him to our ACW bolt action rules, I’ve had this Scenario book for a long time and it often provides a good starting point.

Well it kind of shows the range stuff I am tinkering with at the moment.
