Silent Running


Well the bulk of my tat got moved into the new place last night (curse those two flights of stairs!) but theres still some of my miniatures and whatnot to get shifted over the next few days but I am going to be internet free for the next week or so and I suspect there won't be too much miniatures blogging going on for the next few weeks until we have got everything unpacked and sorted!

Still, during this unwelcome hiatus, I hope to have a good sort through all my miniatures and get geared up for some decent updates on my return!

I must admit I look forward to getting my Eldar Hoard into a bath of dettol so that I can get on with priming and replacing the thickly caked on black coat they currently hide under (on closer inspection, it actually looks like they were dipped in black paint!)

I am also planning on gearing up for some fantasy skirmishing in the Four Realms, the setting for Andy Colemans rather excellent Four A Miniatures!

The Four Realms

I began development of the setting some time ago now but alas, work and house hunting has rather taken over my spare time of late but I hope to continue fleshing it out over the next month or so and it will allow me to create some suitably bleak terrain features for the Slate Plains and Debatable Lands too!

 A Tributary of the Ironlode

The setting has much of the action taking place in the bleak Slate Plains, with the Dwarves having been exiled from their mountain fastnesses by an unspeakable evil, they now live a nomadic existence amongst the moors and forbidding hills and rockpiles that make up the vast plains whilst fending off coastal Goblin and Sea Demon raids, not to mention the forces of darkness that range out from the Mountains of Melancholia!

 The Mountains of Melancholia

The world itself is rather dark and is somewhat based off places like the Highlands of Scotland, Iceland and Alaska, with short summers and bitterly cold winters but even the climate is beginning to change as the Sea Demons have re-channelled the warm waters from the south so they now flow northward and along the coastline.

This allows the warmth loving Sea Demons to extend their domain north to the coastline of the Debatable Lands and is pushing the Coastal Goblins inland and into conflict with the Dwarves and assorted Human barbarian tribes that inhabit the region.

A View From the Foothills

For more info on the setting, please feel free to take a peek at the FOUR A BLOG. Its not been updated in a while but I hope to remedy that soon!

All the best!
