Worcester Wargames Club Relics Tournament Objective markers

 Well this week the tournament pack was posted and having a read through its going to be a lot of fun. A list of various items (besides an army of course) was also listed and one of those things was that some stone objective markers for the final game would be needed.

So whilst I am waiting for my company of fluffy men to arrive I decided to set about this part of the project with gusto to get it done whilst twiddling ones thumbs. They'll also come in handy for other games.

The four larger stones mounted on 40mm bases will basically will be put out in a North, East, South, West of the centre of the board of which the 30mm based stone will be located.

I decided to make the four pillars quite tall and the central one I have made a stone table. I shall have a go at etching some runes or lines into the pillars and paint them with an OSL effect as if there is magic coursing through them. Well that is the plan anyway :)



With it being brighter but colder this week I have managed to get some decent photos of my first few Britanan's again. So for you viewing pleasure see them below.




The next post will be about some more post apoc ruins I've been working on. They just need the final touches adding to get them finished off for the weekend.

  1. Very...nice?! Well-executed, though distinctly creepy models.

    Are these pillars to represent ancient stones? If so then they are perhaps a bit too regular; I'd consider breaking down the straight lines somewhat.

  6. Intriguingly strange; I'll reserve judgement on the stones until they're painted.

  7. Looking forward to the finished objective markers.

    The Brits look great, the whole force will be superb, I have no doubt. :)

  8. Oh my... you have fallen for Relics, Simon. But I don't mind if you paint them all as well as these. Great stuff and looking forward to seeing how both those ruins and stone markers turn out.

    1. Yes indeed they are a very refreshing change to paint as well with them being chunkier than most normal figures.

  9. Great start on the stone pillars and very nice painting on the robot-grenider.

  10. The stone pillars are suitably imposing relative to the grenadier. Good start (says the guy with zero experience building terrain). Curious to see how they turn out.

    1. Thanks Finch. They will be useful for objectives in other Fantasy games as well I think.
