Kazuo Koike, co-creator of the amazing manga, Lone Wolf and Cub, passed away last week. During my rabid consumption of Akira Kurosawa’s samurai films, I stumbled upon the Koike/Kojima series about a dishonored samurai who takes a path of vengeance to right the atrocities suffered by his family, all done with his surviving toddler in tow.

Recently, I started working on the water feature to my Test of Honour board and have been getting mixed results after the first few days. Admittedly, I knew I wasn’t “doing it right” from the get-go but decided to keep going regardless. I’m using Woodland Scenics Realistic Water (which, contrary to my title, isn’t actually resin) and finding that it is an interesting, albeit fickle, product to work with.
In the saga of another long-term project, I am nearing the end of my Test of Honour small-game board. This 2′ x 2′ board will be used to run micro games of very small groups like my Dojo Assault scenario created last year. I finished up applying my homemade wash earlier and wash able to add some of the near-final details like dry brushing and some permanent plants.
Over the weekend, I had the chance to start up another terrain project I’ve been thinking about. This time, it is a large 2′ x 2′ board for my Test of Honour set. I picked up large piece of 8′ x 2′ x 2 inch insulation foam with the intent of making something altogether different but that quickly didn’t pan out. Switching gears, I decided to try my hand at a full gaming board instead.
