Mis-Adventures In The Iron Kingdoms 28/11/2012

Well the party has certainly gotten into the swing of things in helping out the Llaelese Resistance.

Their first mission was to take out a Khadoran outpost that was a thorn in the side for the Resistance, being located close to one of their supply lines. So the party set off and met up with a contact who gave them (later proven inaccurate) headcount of the Khadorans and wished them look.

First task on the list was to take out a patrol, something they did frighteningly well and proved how effective acid bombs can be. Though the patrol turned out to be larger than what they were told, which raised questions over just how accurate their intel actually was.

The forces at the actual outpost itself proved to be much larger than what they had expected, the party discovered that they were outnumbered about two to one. Never the less they hatched a plan; Gret the Gobber commando would sneak into the outpost's barracks with a few knockout grenades to steal with the soldiers inside, the rest of the party would then attack and make an explosive entrance.

It went pretty much to plan, though a couple managed to avoid being knocked out and fled outside alerting the entire outpost, though they were dealt with in short order. Our wannabe Druid had great fun blowing a couple of soldiers out of the top of a watchtower. After the skirmish they planted a few powder kegs, set alight to the wooden buildings and withdrew having completed their task. On their way home they encountered some Isoans, though managed to avoid bloodshed.

All in all it was fun and I feel everyone's starting to get a feel for how combat works in the IKRPG, though I'm still scaling things and trying to keep combat a challenge for the group. But thus far they're really enjoying the system and I'm having great fun running it as a GM, so I'm glad I made the switch from D20.

Next game is this coming Friday where they'll be breaking into a Khadoran administration office, a more of a stealth based mission compared to the outpost.

Town Crier 26/11/2012

Well tis been a while.

This past month has been a bit on the hectic side for me and so the blog has unfortunately had to take a backseat.

Now that things have settled down once more I'll be looking at resuming a regular posting schedule, so pop back on Wednesday for an update on the Iron Kingdoms campaign.

Workbench 5/11/2012

At last! Some progress on the miniatures front!

Devoted some time on Saturday to working on my miniatures, a mix of assembly and a bit of painting.

*Started painting up Magnus, but still a long way to go before he's done.

*Nomad is now painted up in the colours of my army, just some highlighting left and then the varnish.

*Croe's Cutthroats proved harder to assemble than first thought, probably going to end up pinning them as I'm having no end of trouble gluing their arms on.

If anyone has any advice on pinning miniatures then I'm all ears.
