Free Wargames Site , and struck on Bad Endings , a quick and brutal game of miniatures combat set in the early medieval period. This is not something new to me. I have played this game before. Heck, I have even posted about it before! It just goes to show that sometimes when I have a problem, I just need to really look at things I have done in the past. Sometimes I've already found the answer, and I just need to think about it a little differently.
As a fun aside, I hit upon the above miniature as a kind of nice representation as a Conan-type character for my gaming needs. It's a bit pricey as it's from Avatars of War, but for something like a single fig that is exactly what I am looking for, it's not too outrageous. This would come in costing less than many of the converted figures I have used for my Chaos Space Marines.
