And since nobody gives a damn about what I’m doing and would rather just have me shut up get on with the stories, that’s what I’m going to do.
(I’m joking. Take it easy.)
Today’s Terrain Corner includes: Heroic Maps – Storeys: Orsagrigg’s Tower, Menhir Games Kickstarter 28mm Dark Age Outpost Plastic Kit Coming Next Month, Amera Plastic Mouldings New 3 Piece Island Set, and Sally 4th Terrain Deals for ‘Soldiers of God’ wargaming the Crusades.
Orsagrigg’s Tower is a multiple level set, comprising 5 battlemaps (each depicting a different floor)
Ground Floor – Standing on a rocky bluff, the ground floor of the tower sits beside a road, and is surrounded by scrubby plants. The ground floor features entrance halls, mess rooms and the Captain’s office.
Cellar – Below the ground floor are the cellars – neatly divided into storage areas for food, and storage areas for prisoners. And for prisoners that know something, there is an interrogation cell.
First Floor – Spiral stairs lead to this level, where the garrison will find a small armoury and sleeping quarters for the men and officer.
Second Floor- This floor is surrounded by a long gallery where soldiers patrol, looking through the loopholes for signs of attack. A guardroom allows those not on duty to rest.
Roof – The large open area of the roof is exposed to the elements, and makes an ideal vantage point for viewing the surrounding area.
Menhir Games together Idyllwild Games (Facebook: “BattleAxe: Northern Wars”) will be launching in September a Kickstarter campaign to fund a plastic kit that will serve to build a “Dark Age Outpost”, consisting of: palisade wall sections, a tower and a gate.

Since the release of Soldiers of God, we have dusted off our Crusaders & Saracens and have been keenly re-fighting battles from the Crusades.
I really like the elegance of these card driven rules and the fact that as well as gaming field battles and raids you can also wargame sieges, so we have tried to make it as easy as possible for new gamers wanting to get into this period.
We have put together a ‘Soldiers of God’ Webstore where the rules and plastic box sets of suitable figures for building Crusader & Saracen armies from Fireforge and Gripping Beast are available along with Sally 4th Middle Eastern Buildings, Fortifications & Siege Equipment.
We have also created three package deals, which contain the right quantity of buildings for use with ‘Soldiers of God’.
Soldiers of God Village Deal, contains enough buildings for a 20 pace x 20 pace village (the size recommended in the rules)
3 x small, 2 x medium, 1 x L Shape Middle Eastern Building.
£115 compared to £132 purchasing buildings separately.
Soldiers of God Siege Fortifications Deal contains enough models for a 4′ wall with 3 towers and a gateway (once again this is the size recommended in the rules)
£180 compared to £203 purchasing models separately.
Soldiers of God Terrain Deal contains all of the items from the Village & Siege deals for £280 saving £55 compared to buying models separately.
