O is for Olicanalad

An Epic Battle...

Olicanalad's Games is a blog I follow on occasion. James Roach is a wargamer and a superb painter, whose output in sheer quantity of figures alone is amazing but when paired with epic battles like the one shown above is awe inspiring!

Check out his blog for more great pics of other battles. The way wargaming was meant to be! :-)

N is for Nunavut

Canada's newest, largest and northernmost territory, Nunavut came into being on April 1st, 1999 when the North West Territories was split into two parts. Largest, but also the least populated. Way up at the northernmost tip of Ellesmere island is Alert, the northernmost continuously inhabited place on the planet.

M is for Manticore

The Manticore is one of my favourite mythological beasts. Sometimes they are attributed with tails that can fling barbed spikes, but I think I prefer the version with a scorpion tail. In some settings, notably Games Workshop's Old Worlde (Warhammer Fantasy), they are treated as Chaos Beasts, but I prefer to classify them merely as creatures of the wild. Along with Minotaurs, they are just another form of the so-called "Beastmen."
