Element Basing and Soul By The Sea!

Hi all,
Sorry I haven't blogged for awhile, life got in the way, but I'm back so hopefully will keep up the regular blogs.

So what have I been doing in my time away? Hobby wise, not that much I'm afraid. I did decide on element basing for my miniatures, both fantasy and sci-fi. I purchased a selection of mdf bases from, so I could base my miniatures to use with Mayhem ruleset for fantasy games and Gruntz for sci-fi games (using the element rules in the back of the book).

Here is a pic of my complete fantasy human army. Using two bases of 50mm x 25mm to make up a unit base of 50mm x 50mm needed for Mayhem, and using a round 50mm bases (I did order 40mm round bases, but 50mm bases arrived instead and worked out well) for the heroes and artillery bases.

Here's my complete Sci-fi Retained Knights army .

For my Sci-fi armies I used a similar basing method of two 50mm x 25mm bases to make up a gruntz squad, and I used a 25mm x 25mm base for squad attachments and specialists. The Battlesuits used the 50mm round base.

Here is my Muster Army so far.

My wife and I recently went to a local event called Soul By The Sea in Aldeburgh. This free music event is run by Town 102, the local radio station fro Ipswich. As well as some great local bands their were a couple of air displays. Here's some pics and a couple of vids, taken from my phone, off the air displays.

A pair of air craft, sorry I can't remember who they were, half way through the evening, around 7:30pm:

That's it for now, until next time!
