Heretical Gaming is my blog about my gaming life, featuring small skirmishes and big battles from many historical periods (and some in the mythic past or the far future too). The focus is on battle reports using a wide variety of rules, with the occasional rules review, book review and odd musing about the gaming and history. Most of the battles use 6mm-sized figures and vehicles, but occasionally 15mm and 28mm figures appear too.

24th December 2023 - Christmas Hobby Things

 A few photos to show what my hobby is looking like over Christmas.

First - Heroquest, always fun, and now introducing my youngest to it.

The Trial - possibly one of the most played single scenarios ever?

Painting: a few Perry British Napoleonic foot artillerymen, and a few infantry needed some basing repairs...

And, which is more the focus, painting up some Perry Agincourt-era Foot Knights for my youngest too...

And the set-up for tonight's game...more in a later post I am sure 😊

Some kind of early C19 infantry to the left, with a cannon, and some young girls/women; and some quite fierce looking ratmen to the right, on a board with Christmas trees and presents...

And a very Merry Christmas to everyone!


  1. It looks like you are all prepared for one or two Christmas games.

    1. Yes, played a couple, a couple more on the slipway...

  2. A nice mix of game cum projects there. I never played Heroquest but it always seems fun from what I've read.

    1. Yes, it is. It is probably the simplest system that somewhat catches what dungeon-bashing is about and makes it fun.
