Been a while...

It's been a while since I've posted here.  I took a long sabbatical after experiencing 2 hard drive crashes and losing all the work I did on making Vassal mods for Two Hour Wargames titles.  Currently, I can't get DAZ studio to work on my new pc, so I turned to the Junior Generals website and use their icons.  While not as pretty as DAZ, they work fine and take up a lot less space on the hard drive.

Lately, I've been working on a mod for Two Hour Wargame's title of "Qwik - Game of the Wasteland".  It's a fun game based on the late 80s post-apocalyptic movie, "Salute of the Jugger".  Or as it was known here in the states as, "The Blood of Heroes".  Loved the movie, and Qwik makes for a fun and brutal contest.  Plus it can be played solo, like all THW titles.

The pieces for Qwik consist of the the different types of players involved.  1 Qwik, who has to carry the skull to the opposing team's stake.  3 Drivers, who are the bruisers that try to take out the players on the other team, and 1 Chain, who usually guards the Qwik, and/or the stake.  Qwiks wear no armour or soft armour, while drivers and chains wear soft or hard armour.

So players for the red team will look like this:
The white boxes contain the skill levels for the skills of SV-Savvy, ST-Strength, and SP-Speed.  The other number above the shoulders (or in the case of the chains, the lower left corner) is the number of bonus dice they currently have.  Underneath, there's a spot to enter the player's name and any possible traits they may have.

So this is what a player for the blue team will look like.  His name is Ford.  He has the Brawler trait and wears soft armor.  His skill levels are Savvy-4, Strength-3, and Speed-2.  He starts with 9 Bonus Dice.
I wanted to be able to see everything about a player in a single glance.  I will post a report of the game and see how it plays out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Waiting to hear on a ruling for first fight

I'm currently waiting on a particular ruling about something that happened in Severus' first match that I'm not quite sure how to handle.  As soon as I hear back from Ed, from Two Hour Wargames I will finish the BatRep and post the fight.  Thanks all, for stopping by.

Prelude to Severus' First Match

I rolled up an opponent for Severus in his first match.  He will be facing a murmillo, with a larger shield and no upper leg armor.  I rolled up the 'frenzy' trait for him so decided to give him the nickname of 'Wild Man'. Luckily for Severus, Gallus has a lower Savvy and Speed stat which puts the murmillo at a sizable disadvantage.

Up Next, Severus vs. "Wild Man" Gallus...

Still Here...

     Taking a little break from things and finally gonna play something for a change.  I'm gonna try a career as a gladiator in Red Sand, Blue Sky- Heroes of the Arena and see if I can one day make it to the Colosseum in Rome and hopefully win my freedom.

     I decided to train as a Thraex and took the "Brawler" attribute.  I think it could come in handy for those "re-taking" of the attack tests that seem to pop up a lot. 

     So begins the career of Severus Aelius the Thraex.  Hopefully it wont be a short one.

   First match to come soon...

A Vassal Mod for Red Sand, Black Moon by THW

     Red Sand, Black Moon (RSBM) by Two Hour Wargames is the fantasy version of Red Sand, Blue Sky, the game of gladitorial combat in Ancient Rome.  In Red Sand, Black Moon different fantasy races from the world of Talomir are represented.
     I put together a couple of gladiators to use in the next Vassal mod I'm working on for this fun title.

A Troll...

A Minotaur...

And a Serpent Man...

     Should be an interesting mod to work on.
