I've been thrashing about with Leviathan over the last decade or so but never really getting anywhere with it and after repeated failures, I had left the blog pretty much mothballed as I moved onto other random projects.
The problem is that I still obsess over the game. I don't know why but I got to thinking that maybe I should have one last bash at making a go of it so here I am in January 2020 with only the vaguest idea as to what I am going to do but my plan is as follows:
Collect and paint a small force of Dwarves, Elves, Barbarians and Orcs over the course of the year and blog my progress. I plan on using vintage resin and lead for the most part with the odd plastic or sculpted conversion to represent stuff that isn't currently available or the original model is just not up to spec.
My budget for said project is pretty puny but I do feel that I need to do it as I will never get it out of my system otherwise and who knows, I may end up with an army or two...
Now I don't really want to go spending ages trying to build armylists or anything so organised. Rather I want to paint stuff that I find interesting and that really showcases just how amazing the game could have been.
The first aim will be to paint a warbeast, a unit and a character for each of the four races so watch this space for updates and I will hopefully be giving the assorted forces a bit of gaming time too as I progress as I am keen to see how well the game plays in smaller scale with only a handful of miniatures a side and up to a smallish force of 1-1500 points. This will give me the opportunity to see if I can make a success of playing the game with the figures and hopefully putting to rest the madness of the project that I just couldn't complete!
I will aim to post an update once a week with progress, or lack thereof and we shall see what we can do.
