"Wars of Ozz" Kickstarter Launches this Saturday, June 27th!

     "Wars of Ozz" is a 28mm Mass Fantasy Battle Game inspired by the ‘Oz’ series of books written by L. Frank Baum between 1900 and 1920. The inspirational literature has been greatly expanded by Russ Dunaway, to form a unique new fantasy gaming world to battle over, populated with Munchkins, Quadlings, Winkies and Gillikins combined with Witches, Wizards, Pumpkin Men, animated Scarecows and Tinmen, Giants, Trolls, Skeletons and much, much more.
The miniatures range has been designed, sculpted and manufactured by Old Glory and when fully released will include 60 packs of miniatures.

     The ‘Wars of Oz’ rules are written by Buck Surdu, author of Gaslight and Combat Patrol among many more published works. The game is a mass battle rather than a skirmish game. Infantry units are 20 strong, mounted 4 to a base. Two or more units of Infantry, Cavalry or Artillery are formed into a Brigade and an Army is comprised of one or more Brigades. The game is designed to be played on a standard 6’ x 4’ wargames table, with a typical game reaching its conclusion in two to three hours. The rulebook covers the background and history of Ozz, army building, movement, melee, ranged combat, magic and morale together with points lists for tournament play, scenarios, maps, campaign and painting guides.

Three Munchkin Commanders for Wars of Ozz

     This past weekend I finished painting the three named Munchkin dismounted commanders for my "Wars of Ozz" Munchkin army.   They are, from left to right:  Colonel Tic-tok, Colonel Sourdough, and Colonel Hardsole.  Each commands their own regiment, and can take command of a Brigade as well.
      These were fun figures to paint and they have a lot of character.  For fun I added a loaf of bread to the top of Colonel Sourdough's hat by building up a mound of superglue gel.   I then painted the ribbon hanging from the hat as it it was the old family bread recipe.
