Wars of Ozz Kickstarter 2: Last Few Days

    There's just 4 days left to get in on the newest Wars of Ozz Kickstarter!    The kickstarter is introducing 3 new factions to the world of "Wars of Ozz"; the Land of Harvest, Impkins, and Gnomes.  It also features the debut of the new "Wars of Ozz" Campaign Boardgame; which can be played as a regular board wargame, or used as a campaign engine for your miniatures battles.  A truly novel concept!
     Be sure to check out all the great new minis offered in this event. Old Glory has done a great job of bringing charm, whimsy and life to this range of models.   And rules author Buck Surdu, as done a great job of giving each new faction its own characteristics while still keeping everything balanced and not adding dozens of new special rules.  The old factions won't be outclassed, and still will offer a competitive exciting battles with the new.  

     I've had a chance to play both the Land of Harvest and Gnome Armies in playtesting and have enjoyed both.   And I can't say enough about the figures!  There's so many delightful and unique concepts among them, like the Harvest Land's Corn People, and the Gnomish 4-Wheeled Artillery.  
   So, be sure to check out the Kickstarter before it ends.  All the details can be found at:
 And also consider joining the very active Facebook group to keep up with all the latest information on "Wars of Ozz":

Munchkin Mounted Officer Corps for "Wars of Ozz"

      This part month I've been working on completing my Munchkin forces for the "Wars of Ozz"rules, and painted up all my mounted Munchkin infantry officer figures.   I had painted up many of the infantry units last year, but because they were pre-public release figures made by Old Glory for us to run demo games with, none had their mounted officers, for the simple reason they hadn't been made into molds and cast yet.   Note that the officers all ride the distinctive Munchkin "Horses of a Different Color". 
    I have mounted these on the great Ozz officer MDF bases made by Sally 4th and distributed in the US by Old Glory.  The upright section in the back of the base is for an insertable label with the officer's characteristic on it.
The entire officer pool.
     For the divisional officer, I was lucky to have a left over cavalry sample figure that I used as a messenger or scout to put on the base with the officer to help make a little scene, and help his base look distinctive.
The Divisional officer.
Two Brigade Officers.  
The officers for my two Landwher regiments.  (Note one holds a large lollipop, since I say he is a member of the Lollipop Guild and volunteered for the army.)
The commanders for the various named regiments. L to R: Hardsole's Regt.,  Zoraster's Guard Regt., Tik-Tok's Regt., Sourdough's Regt.
