Ishoo Fifty-Ate: Dark Ages Village Part Too

Last ishoo we started to build a Dark Ages village in 28mm to go with the popular SAGA rules. Not only have we now completed the ishoo, we've also gone and bought a copy of SAGA! While it remains to be seen if the game is easy enough for a hippo to play, the second half of the village is certainly easy enough for a hippo to make!

Part One: The Hall.

Part two: The Roads.

And there you have it dark ages hippo fans! It's not hard to build up a decent sized village quickly using these techniques.
It's important to paint the under sides of the roads black - this helps to counter the warping caused by the other paints on top shrinking. They will probably still warp a bit, but it's easy to bend them back to the right shape, or leave them under a stack of encyclopaedias or something to flatten them.

Well, that's it for thise ishoo - look out for this lot getting it's first SAGA test drive soon - and don't forget to vote on the reader's choice polls and enter the compometition!

Ishoo Fifty-Sven: Dark Ages Village Part One

What with the shiny new SAGA rules from Gripping Beast, many a gamer is thinking about the dark ages - and why not? How can you possibly go wrong with vikings and shield walls? Well, you could easily go wrong by playing it across the same terrain you play your Sci-Fi games across! And that would be a tragic mistake, since it's really very easy to make some nice characterful dark ages terrain! Let's see what Grot has in store for us?


And there you have it Dark Ages Hippo Fans! It's really very quick and easy to build a Dark Ages village, as we'll prove even further in part two coming int he next ishoo!
