Merging of blogs - and new projects

Decided to merge my two blogs London by Midnight and 1812 - Retreat from Moscow into a general blog The Dane's Wargaming Blog. First of all my interest in several different wargames and going back and forth on these makes it look like nothing is happening on each blog.

 I have sold of all my Malifaux stuff - having not played the game for a year, I decided that selling in order to fund new games was a good idea.

The money has already been spent - did not take me long I know. I have looked at many games but have settled on two: Across the Dead Earth from Dead Earth Games and SAGA The Crescent and the Cross from Gripping Beast.

Across the Dead Earth is something my friend Chris and I have been looking at for a long time, and we finally decided to try it out. My other friend Michael also liked the sound of it and he is always willing to try something new, so the three of us ordered the Across the Dead Earth deluxe set, which will give us the rulebook, a PDF version of it, a gang each and some additional PDFs. Good deal and I'm thinking that my London Station board that I use for Empire of the Dead could be used if we make some terrain pieces that look overgrown etc. Time will tell.

SAGA The Crescent and the Cross will be my next big project. With the 1812 - Retreat from Moscow game I have found out that I like to get myself involved in a larger project - learning new rules, creating a new board and terrain, and of course the minis. 1812 - Retreat from Moscow also showed me that I quite like having smaller units on the table. Friday evening I placed a huge order with Firestorm Games for the core rulebook, two sets of SAGA dice, and a lot of minis so that I can build both a Knights Templar warband and a Mutatawwi'a warband.

So I'm very much looking forward to painting up a lot of minis for both games and to get them on the table.

  1. Sometimes dead games gathering dust need to fund new ones. I did the same with my LOTR stuff it funded my EotD. Looking forward to seeing the new games popping up on the blog. Of course any questions drop me a line on facebook :)
