Dux......Redux !!!!

Yes, bloop, bloop bloop, Polish Renaissance, ooooooohhhhh hang on, whats in that box?

Just a quick peek, in case its something important.

Aaaaaaah of course, its those Dark Ages figures, you know the ones, they are in that set of books, by whotsits face

Yep, thats the badger, so what have we got in there then? Time for a Higgs type rummage :-)

Crikey chaps, forgot all about this little stash, I do believe I have some of those painted somewhere.

Well, they don't look too shabby, now what rules? 

Ho hum, and whooooooooooooooosssssssssssshhhh, we are off on another tangent. It only took a week.
Well how can you resist, when you have figures of this quality, to paint

These are just the Romano-British, all Musketeer Miniatures, sculpted by the talented Mr Bill Thornhill, damn you sir.

The reality is, I did some sums, the Poles, whilst looking beautiful, would cost me far too much money to put together. The rules alone were £38.50!!! :-o
I already have nearly enough figures to do two Dux armies, the rules have been sitting on my shelf gathering dust, and I have an assortment of buildings, trees and other scenic items already. Its a no brainer, for absolutely minimum outlay, I can put this game onto the table, and have a laugh playing a few games.
I like the figures, they paint up quite easily, and look fantastic, its a nice little summer project to keep me occupied, and distract me from my everyday life, which at times, can be very stressful. Thats one of the main reasons I paint and make models, I can focus my mind, and forget all the crap.

Here we go again, lets see how long this fancy lasts me.

Oooh I say, theres a bloke there without any strides on!!!!! 

Until next time paintbrush lickers

  1. Well, who really can resist those awesome Musketeer sculpts? Me definitely not...

  2. Sweet! I love DB and just finished painting some raiders for the supplement and our new campaign. I have not had the pleasure of painting MM yet. They do look like a real treat so enjoy!

  3. Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel!

    Nice to know there's someone else who flits about more than me though. Dux Brit? Great rules, great period and great figures, a very worthy project! When someone mentions Polish Renaissance though, I immediately think of Yul Brynner and Tony Curtis for some reason...

    1. Taras Bulba - hollywood classic!!!! :-) I do like the look of the DB rules, Lardies rules do have that extra fun element added.
