Lovely miniatures - am really glad that HF picked these up, as they compliment their other ranges.

Very interested in the babe in the last two photos too

That's Sasha - a charity miniature that Kev has very generously agreed to help Dags with - more details here:

Cheers all, will make sure we get some decent photos.

Had a bit of spare time the other weekend, so thought i'd add another couple of boards to the end of the table....

Oh, of course. What else would you be doing? :lol:

Fantastic work, Matt. I'm really sorry that I didn't have time to make more Kindred like I said I would :erm:

No probs mate....finish the smart gunner, and i'll forgive you

 :wink: :lol:

Had a bit of spare time the other weekend, so thought i'd add another couple of boards to the end of the table -the board is now 10' long x 4' wide,

I wanted to reinforce the impression that the battlefield is ravaging the green and pleasent land of the halfling-folk, so the new boards show less damage than the others - hopefully it works.

On the left of the picture you can see two of the existing boards, with the two new ones, on the right - viewed from the Goblin lines



The first new board (viewed from the table end)

A small lake, rather than a shell crater this time - I might add a small jetty to it.


The crashed plane fits neatly into a socket i've built into the lake - I could have just built the lake flat, but i didnt want a base sitting ontop of the surface - its got a magnet on the bottom, and eventually i'll build another couple of options for different aircraft, or even perhaps a tentacled monster... If I want a game without a crashed plane, i'll just build a small island to fit into the socket.



The second board  - viewed from the table end.



Left intentionally free of defensive trenches, the ground leverl is lower than the other sections, so there is plenty of surface water lying around.

I've also added some more foliage to the other sections, and finished off the ruined building, by the bridge - it has literally been flattened by a direct hit, with only the cellar remaining.  The greenery is all low, and not intended to restrict movement (or transport for that matter).



All done - just hope it fits in the car.

Managed to pretty much finish the boards over the last week or so - still some more green stuff to add to the hobbit holes, and some detailing inside, but its basically done.

Decided to add some foliage rather than just leave it as a muddy morass - reason being that it is supposed to be the Shire.  Hopefully it looks ok.

Hobbit Holes (need more grass on top)

Now I need to get on and paint some Kindred to go with my Dwarves.

Very cool.

I would seriously suggest replacing all of the pictures above, with ones covered with "Hasslefree" all over them though.

There are plenty of gits out there, that will just copy,paste and print from the images on this thread, and then glue the paper onto their models.

Hi Sally,

Is there a chance of any more Kindred being available before (or at Salute)?

Given the WW1 Fantasy Trench game i'm running at Salute - might be able to drum up some more interest for HF.

 :D

The HMG team would be especially useful, but any additions are welcome.

Kev is trying to get some done he just got a bit bogged down with 'stuff'

This looks awesome. The muddy-water filled crater looks particularly disgusting (in a brilliantly realistic I wouldn't want to go anywhere near it way).  :applause:

Thanks. 

 :D

The game is for Salute (the UK's largest show) so I don't want it to look pants - hopefully it will drum up some interest for Hasslefree, and the other Fantasy figures (my own included), while raising a bit of cash for Combat Stress at the same time.  The game I ran last year - based upon the Battlefield Bad Company online series - has raised 575 so far, and i've decided to carry the appeal on this year.

The muddy crater is supposed to be the result of a recent mine explosion, which has taken out a section of the Goblin frontline - it will be unpassable (anyone foolish enough to try will be sucked down into the murky depths).

Small update - have been working on a bit more detailing.

I was all fired up thinking "Brandlin's going to love this" but now I'm not so inspired.

You could always work on, you know what, as I can guarantee I'll love it - the start you've already made looks great!

 :whistle:

Oh, and Kindred stuff, for the Salute game.....have you seen the table WIP?

Nah, I can't imagine WW1 soldiers different from the real ones. IMHO.

?

 :scratchhead:

How about adding Austrian-Hungarian Ogres?
Or Ottoman Orcs?

I've got plans to commission an Ottoman Undead Army - Frank Hammond is going to do Austro-Hungarians (plus French Gnomes). I'm also going to commission some ogre/giants to fit in with things.

Cheers!

 :lol:

Quick Update:





Still needs lots of work

Congratulations to you both on the new website - it looks very professional.

Knowing what a crappy time you've had, Jo and I really hope that 2012 is a great year for you both, and for Hasslefree.

I know what it looks like, I remember it from BFBC2, but it's not showing on my list of unlocks in the game :scratchhead:

ah, i think its one of the freebies with the Limited Edition version - if you've got that version, it might have been one you needed to download as soon as you got the game.

Either way, its a decent gun.

 :D

Have you been playing with it on BF3?

Not from my own kit, I haven't got that far in Assault yet, but I picked one up off a corpse I'd just knifed (wasn't a corpse, but was caused to be one :twisted: ) and loved it :D

I can't find the T88  :erm: .... on the other hand I'm loving the M60 :boing:

Type 88

Personally i find it to be a better balanced weapon than the M60.
