This is the start of a blog series about my new love „Congo“ a skirmish game by Studio Tomahawk.
Originally I absolutely don’t want to start another new game System but… again… I couldn’t resist for long…
After buying the beautiful rulebook at the last Crisis Show in Antwerp I decided not only to start a „White Man’s Expedition“ but also to stock the Congo range.
You can Play Congo in the jungle or the savannah. In Congo you Need tons of Terrain pieces and there is not a single in my collection. I have to start at Zero *jippppieeeh* So I will go for the jungle first and already builded 2 Woods. The Basis is the modular magetized Wood I created for Palm and normal Woods. For the trees I use grown twigs and a lot of plastic Aquarium plants. I think I glued nearly 200 plastic pieces with my hot glue pistol for only 2 Woods!!! I will do a step by step tutorial soon how I build jungle Woods soonish.
Next you see some shots I took with the first bunch of Miniatures I painted. I am more than happy with the Outcome you can nearly hear the jungle sounds and feel the heat.
Next to all kind of SAGA stuff I am very exited about Dungeon stuff. I am working on my own Dungeon project (mostly Dwarven Forge) for more than a year.
I backed Dungeon Saga a Dungeon Crawler from Mantic Games a year ago on Kickstarter. I know Ronnie Renton the big Mantic Boss nearly 20 years from our time at GW. We see us 2-3 times a year at Tabletop Conventions. At the last Crisis in Antwerp be talked a lot about Dungeon Saga and I offered him to paint some of the Dungeon Saga miniatures to take some pictures of them together with my Dungeon.
Some weeks ago I received some Dungeon Saga samples (final production miniatures) from Ronnie. Here is the first bunch. Next time I will hopefully show you some pictures of my Dungeon.
The miniatures are fantastic and absolut fun to paint.
These are my Fatigue markers I builded for the Dark Age Skirmish game SAGA. Every time you make too many moves or fight in hand to hand combat you have to place a Fatigue marker next to that unit. So you can have multiple markers for one unit. For that reason I included the crate with a dice.
