Mark: AOBR 4, Real Men Aren't Afraid to Fight in the Flower Garden

Well they're done wild flowers and all (well mostly I spotted somewhere that I missed but that will only take a couple of minutes to fix). This little experiment has taken up a lot more time than I expected it to but I'm happy with the results. I continued the experimentation onto the bases using some MiniNatur late fall foliage that I had laying around. With a little more experimentation with lengths and placement I think they could look quite good on the bases of my Wood Elves or Circle of Oboros forces.

I've only managed one game since my last post, it was against my co-poster Travis on the war torn streets of Mordheim. He took his Pirates and I ran my Marienburg Merc's as usual, his shooting was far and away less effective than it should have been which gave me a massive advantage once I had closed in and joined melee. So that's another win for me. I'm getting a bit worried, I'm on a bit of a winning streak at the moment, they rarely last long and tend to end with an embarrassing bang.

Until next time .......



  1. But at least i managed to fatally wound your guy with my Anchor

    1. That hit was probably the highlight of the game for me, but I was grateful that your swivel gun underperformed and only managed to knock one guy down all game.

  2. I like the wild flowers. It is a unique idea. I certainly have not seen any bases done that way before.

    I think I like it. I am imagining an entire army based this way. Wild flowers occur so frequently, that I can't imagine the 41st millennium is void of them.

    Great work!

    1. Thanks, I haven't seen any bases done like that either.

      The more I look at them the more I like them as well, I got them out at the local club yesterday where the idea got an overall positive response. I'm not sure which one I'll do but one of my army's will be based with the flowers in the not to distant future.
