A knight in Talomir

 A knight in Talomir is a supplement campaign for Warrior Heroes Adventures in Talomir ruleset from Two Hour Wargames, and this is how it starts:

You are Jean de la Roche, a minor noble and knight from the interior lands of Jellway, in the Borderlands in Talomir. You are sitting in the hall of your castle, looking at the fireplace with a glass of spiced wine in your hand, away from the chilling wind outside.

You are warm and safe, but you sorely miss the days of adventure, when you rode through the kingdom helping people from evil doers, exploring dungeons, killing monsters and witches as well as saving damsels in dire need.

So when you heard news of a Great Fair being held in Edhelion, South of Jellway, you quickly saddle up and take the road once again.

Adventure and the possibility of gaining honors and riches awaits you!

So my character is a wandering knight and his first mission is just to take the road and have some encounters along (minimum 3). He is a Rep 5, Star, swordman and with the combat perk "critical hit", and equipped with a long sword and shield, helmet, full chainmail and a war horse and a purse with 6 increasing Rep d6.

As he rides down the road he first meet with a group of pilgrims traveling to visit the Temple of the Amulet of Sorbrowane. They are a caster, a knight, a soldier, a peasant and a sheperd (miniatures are 1/72 soft plastic ).


Sir Jean addresses first to the caster (using here the new NPC Interaction chart, Courtly talk). The caster receives him well and barters a vial of mana for 1 Rep d6. Jean then talks with the knight who is very much impressed by his courtly manners; Jean gets an extra 1 Rep d6. He finally talks to the soldier but he doesn't get anything interesting from this simple man. After that, he resumes his travel, ignoring the peasants.


On his second encounter he just finds some food that can be gathered. He gains 1 Rep d6.

On his third and last compulsory encounter Sir Jean meets a noble woman who turns to be the lady of lord of a neighbouring castle. Again, Jean impresses the lady with his courtly and refined manners (gets 1 Rep d6), and seeing he has all her attention, he pushes forward to take a quest from the lady, but this turns to be too much for a first meet and she  dissmises him with contempt (loses 1 Rep d6).


I was having fun and didn't want to finish yet this first mission, so I went for another encounter in the road as I can have as much as I want. This time it was an ambush of four bandits!

Sir Jean activated first and charged the closest villain who almost thrusted his horse with a spear but was finally slain. Then it was the bandits' turn, and though they attacked the knight together, they were no match for him and were quickly and easily dispatched.

Suddenly, a stone smashed against his shield and turning his horse, he charged at the man with the sling and killed him in no time. Those poor bastards didn't know who they were attacking and paid with his lives. And much more they did pay as Sir Jean found coins in their pockets for a total of 9 Rep d6 plus two magical objects, a potion of vision and the sword of seeking!

 He then happiliy resumed his travel towards the Great Fair and future adventures.




I needed some farm animals for my games. I am using these ones for Dark Ages orvFantasy as objectives to defend, escort or loot.

They come from the very useful 1/72 Pegasus Hobbies Farm Animals box and it contains all kind of handy animals like sheep, dogs, chickens, pigs and even piglets, donkeys, goats and cows which I will also deploy in some WWII settings.

Below you can see all the sheep contained in the box plus two dogs. The "shepherd" is a figure from Strelets.


hät 1/72 El Cid Spanish Command

There are two miniatures in this set, the commander on horse and on foot and another one that can be used either as musician or a standard bearer, also on horse and on foot.

I wanted this set because I could use the same character mounted and dismountedt for my skirmish adventurers. Actually, I used the standard bearer on foot as another version of the commander but dressed for any social event and not for war. 

Picture a bit out of focus :(

Here I replaced the standard for a Gripping Beast 28mm Late Roman infantry spear.

As I said, I'm using these two as the same character, being the one on the right "chilling out".


Hät 1/72 El Cid heavy infantry

I bought this set for different purposes. The main one was to make some Gondor infantry units, but I also wanted them as Normans, maybe from the South, and as a generic Fantasy guards.

I went first for these last ones as I need them for my next solo campaign, but after that I will probably paint some men of Gondor.

As you can see, I'm still experimenting with Xpress paints.



I painted this 1/72 soft plastic Caesar Wood Elf as a Drow for fun's sake in a friendly painting contest at Benno's forum. I did it experimenting with Xpress paints, washes and normal paints.
