Some of you may remember this entry from LPL5.



As  I have posted elsewhere the miniatures and the steamer are painted for a T&T game which I was supposed to bring to SLAM! in Stockholm this June, a plan I due to unfortunate circumstances had to cancel.
I have however set my mind on not doing anything else until I have completed the scenario, warts and all. Those of you who know me know it may be slow going but I WILL get there. I thought it may be of general interest to see how a game develops, not only in terms of miniatures and scenario perspective but also from a rules, play testing and logistics ditto.

Some more miniatures are already completed and will be posted as soon as I have time to pull my Finepix from it's holster.

This sounds very much interesting and I am looking forward to see more.

Well, my cunning plan is to, by posting on this board, wrench an inappropriate amount of help from you and Chris. Smiley

Good start. This entry was one of my favourites in the LPL5 and now you've enlisted Björn. It promises to be a proper mind-blast! Cheesy

I am so looking forward to seeing this develop. It's a pity that it won't see the SLAM outing, which I am sure would have made for some grand report and tasty piccies, and I certainly hope the reason is more of the "unpleasantly irritating vagaries of life" rather than something truly serious.

Anyway, I absolutely love that thing. I hope it prompts me to finish off the marine vessel rules I've been working on and off for months now.

I thought I'd use something based on the vehicle rules, simplified. Right now I have plans for three teams in five boats, not counting the native dugouts.

The game will be about three factions striving to reach  the end of a stretch of the Arumbaya river. The three factions are Federales of the glorious Republic of Paquador on the river steamer Cacafuego, a British navy landing party in to motor launches from the destroyer HMS Reckless and, here I am a bit undecided, either a group of adventurers or a sailor crew from my steamer, SS Xanthippe.

Five of the Federales I painted for LPL5:



There will be another six Federales, Pulp Figures Gestapo conversions, on the Cacafuego.

The sailors I have posted elsewhere before to, but here some of them are again:





I have the Regiment Games RN landing party painted up but in navy blues. I shall soon proceed to strip them and repaint them in tropical whites. I shall post them once they are done.

Are the Arumbayas themselves going to put in an appearance? As an obstacle, random encounter or something, perhaps?

There will of course be natives lurking in the jungle on both sides of the river. I procured these Copplestone indians from the Professor a while back and I have painted some of them for the game. I plan to have these chaps triggered by a Fate deck (of cards) and run by the Game Master. More about the Fate Deck later.

Copplestone Amazon Indian Archers



Painting nudes is always fun and Copplestones even more so. I love the 'my-mom-cuts-my-hair' mullets of the above chaps. I decided not to do war paint on these but keep them more general purpose.

Copplestone Botocudo warriors and a chieftain



These I will place in scratch built dugouts.

I have another 10 or so tupi and botocudo archers and another 7 warriors, also to be placed in a canoe. If I feel it is needed I may order some of those rather appealing new Eureka Tupis if I feel those I have don't look 'swarmy' enough.

The above mentioned Fate deck will also trigger monsters and mishaps; black caimans, pirahnas, submerged logs, direction changing eddies and whirlpools...

I have painted these:

A bask of Orinoco crocodiles (Foundry, one is converted).




A bundle of giant green anaconda




I take special delight in painting this category. I have plenty of caymans, parrots, flamingoes, egrets... to paint and there will obviously be a bit of sculpting and scratch building of schools of piranhas and such.

Smashin' stuff. This project is really grabbing me already.

And the way Hammers instantly bought, painted, photographed and posted those natives in response to my question was pretty cool, too.


Are those guys in the lower picture wearing some kind of penis sheath, or do they just have very thick willies in that part of South America? Knowing nothing about Amazon tribes I've always wondered that about those figures...
