Welcome to the 9th issue of Davy Jones’ Locker. This issue will be somehow shorter because I was on holiday. But nonetheless, I managed to squeeze some hobby time out. So let’s take a closer look.

Monthly review

During this month I was printing a lot of cool stuff fo my upcoming fantasy campaign. The Prusa MK3S is running like hell without a single flaw. So far I am totally happy with the printer and the results.

Besides that, I was on holiday in Italy. Pizza, pasta and wine, but no time to paint. But now I am back on track. In the upcoming month, I will finish my Macedonian army for Hail Caesar and Lion Rampant. Besides that, I will finish at least the first gaming table for my fantasy campaign. So stay tuned!

Purchases

  • I already have a large lead mountain, so I didn’t buy anything this month. Yes, I really made it. One month without a single purchase!

But fortunately, other hobbyists were much more productive than me. Here are my top five picks of this month for you.

#1 Mediterranean gaming table

I want to start with an awesome gaming table. Today we have a Mediterranean setting built by Pat. Look at all these small details which add so much character to the table.

#2 Diablo 3 Diorama

The next pick is a video about a fan-made Diablo 3 diorama by Roman. As a huge Diablo fan this whole project blew me away. Even if you don’t understand the audio commentary like me, it is inspiring to watch.

#3 Croms Anvil

The next pick is a whole project. It covers a series of nicely made AARs of an independent rule set called Burning Sand. Think Conan, monsters and sorcery in the dessert. Just check out the page, it is well worth a visit. Personally I never tried the rules, but maybe one day I will give them a try.

#4 Traditional African Villages

The following pick is a nice article from a photojournalist about rural African villages with a lot of images. Great inspiration for colonial wargaming or Darkest Africa.

#5 Encounters in hostile lands (AAR)

The last pick is a fantastic AAR by Harold. The rules are Congo and the setting is Darkest Africa. A lovely read with a lot of character, supported by an amazing gaming table. You will also find a lot of inspirations for building terrain in this AAR.

That’s it for this issue. I hope you enjoy my picks. So stay tuned for the next issue.

If you have any suggestions or questions put them in the comments. And as always, happy wargaming!
