  1. Oleon: Sign-up and Discussion, Era II

    To be honest, I had never seen Lord Buckethead's Royal Engineers before! There is indeed a striking similarity, but it wasn't my intention. I just searched for helmets most closely resembling something Dragoon-ish and the bobby helmet was the most pleasing option. I was actually truly inspired by your hussars and dragoons from your flickr photostream. I wanted to make an Oleander version, with some obvious differences of course . Yeah, I choose the legs with the black boots because they portray riding boots the best and thus differentiate these guys visually from the infantry minfigs.
  2. Oleon: Sign-up and Discussion, Era II

    Hiya guys! I'm trying to get a small MOC finished and then take some decent photos of it. I have some new soldiers for Oleon I wanted to show in the meantime. I was waiting to use them in a MOC, but I just love 'em to much to withhold them from the public eye for so long . Inspired (again) by @Ayrlego's troops, I present to you: the Oleander Dragoon. The picture is kind of bad, but I made it tonight under low light, so all in all it's okay considering the circumstances. Some fluff from my own: "The Oleonder Dragoons are an infamous cavalry force, known for their deeds both on and next to the battlefield. They are for most part made up from the youngest sons of the lower nobility or otherwise wealthy mercantile families. These youngsters have little claim to the sometimes vast riches of their families and as such, they search their fame and fortune elsewhere. Whereas members of the higher classes often enlist in the regular heavy cavalry or infantry officer corps, these men find they lust for adventure satiated in the ranks of the Dragoons. Somewhere in between cavalry and infantry, Dragoons are a versatile unit, righteously feared on the battlefield. Due to their versatile nature, Dragoons are also oft employed as a police force or occupation troop. Many a savage tale besmudging the reputation of the Dragoons stems from their sometimes abysmal and tyranical behaviour towards the subjected populace." Like often, I also made a concept artwork first of these guys, since I didn't have some parts and I wanted to get an idea beforehand of how they'd like before ordering the missing parts. I hope to use these guys in a real MOC soon! In the meantime, feel free to build your own Dragoons . They're obviously mounted, but I didn't add a horse in the photo or sketch. I have more stuff and background in mind for these guys. I wanted to post them on my flickr and add them next to the Légionnaires, but I forgot my password . Stay tuned for (hopefully) more from my side. I hope I can finish my (small, non-military) MOC maybe next week or so.
  3. @Lord Buckethead Wow, super cool of you to have made them! The Donald Duck legs for the "oriental" soldier are solely because they are yellow/light orange at the bottom and white at the top, which makes it look like knee breeches, which soldiers of this type mostly wore (English sepoys in India and French native forces in Indochina, for example). In absence of the Donald Duck legs I'd use normal white pants instead of the Saracen pants. You can also give the guy a regular musket, I armed him with a dadao and flintlock to spice up the drawing somewhat . But these are only minor nitpicks. I love seeing people make the real figs based on my drawings .
  4. Hi guys! Thanks for the positive comments. Always great to read people love the drawing . @Keymonus Cool to see a real life version of the drawing! I don't have the pieces myself to build one, so it's great to see someone else make it real . I added some WIPs in the spoiler (don't want to clog up the thread). I don't really know how diverse the BoBS world is in terms of geographically different regions, but I thought it would be cool to draw some ethnically different soldiers. Kind of like Corrington had Sepoys in their line-up.
  5. Hi guys! Just popping in. I sometimes lurk in the shadows, roughly following the BoBS story. I don't have the time to build much anymore and most of my collection is stashed away, but I got inspired to draw something today and I wanted to share it with you guys. I noticed in the Corrington forum they posted some of their military units, so I tried my hand at making something for Oleon. I have some ideas for others as well. If I can find the time, I'll try and work those out too . You can read the description on flickr. Might of Oleon - Légion Etrangère by +Khorne, on Flickr
  6. Heroica RPG - Sungold Alliance

    "Then he shouldn't be calling it 'conscription'", Eric hissed. "I remain in favor of option 2. Provide the poor with housing and teach them valuable skills. Then let them work out their own future from there."
  7. Heroica RPG - Sungold Alliance

    Eric swaggered into the villa, a sharp smell of sea salts following his wake. Having heard there was a vote on a proposition, the tall Nord took a seat and listened to the options presented by Blackgull and Heinrich. As one by one the other members of the Alliance voiced their opinions, Eric rolled his eyes then shook his hand. He waved away their voices with his hand as if he was dealing with children. "Option two is clearly the only right option.", the Nord said with a commanding voice. It didn't take long before his trademark wolfish grin appeared on his face. Eric stroked his beard and started speaking. He stood up from his chair, greatly increasing his stature and presence. "Conscripting the masses? Ha! The mere thought itself is foolish. Your solution for the Hovels is to take away the people's freedom by forcing them into service? Never have I heard such nonsense! Sure, they'll have something on their hands those few years in service, but they'll return to a run-down neighbourhood right after that. Doing service is not a long term plan and is only beneficial to people such as yourselves. Teaching them some actual skills they can use in life and providing a decent roof over their heads, that's something worthwhile. The Hovels will be renewed and we will be seen as the providers of that renewal instead of oppressors taking away people's freedom to fight our fights for us. We will be their heroes instead of their slavemasters." Eric glared at Blackgull and scoffed. "Tss, conscription." In truth, the Nord couldn't really care less about the situation in the Hovels, nor providing strangers with a roof over their heads. The idea of supplying the Bonapartes with cheap manpower and thus greatly increasing their fighting strength, however, was something Eric just couldn't let happen. The House of Blackgull was already strangling the seas enough as it is. Strengthening the Bonapartes would be a nightmare come true.

    Oh yeah? Are there any new northern characters that have sprung up during my absence? I'm not planning on getting entirely into the game again, life's too busy for that now. I saw the Alliance update and just wanted to pop in here and see what's it all about. I'm sure Eric has his own vision on the matter . I also saw the Grogmas gift ideas for Eric and it's so cool to see people still thinking of gifting him, even though it's been ages since I last posted here. Really awesome .
  9. Heroica RPG - Heroica Hall

    "Believe me, lady, I don't need pointers from dragons," Eric replied, purposely misinterpreting the Elf's words. "Besides, I could show you a thing or two myself, be it on the battlefield or beside it. See you around." "There's nothing better than some good ale, though. Where are your parents, anyway? Are you native to Eubric or Uland?", Eric asked while drinking some more of his own mead. He then continued to explain in a boastful manner, "A Basilisk is like a gigantic snake. A landwyrm that gnaws through the heart of this land. It springs from the earth when you least expect, trying to eat you alive. Its fangs drip with deadly poison and its gaze can turn a man into stone. The battle I fought was hard, but I endured and I slew the beast."
  10. Heroica RPG - Heroica Hall

    Eric sniffed and eyed the newcomer suspiciously. He didn't quite like being interrupted in his conversation. "No, we haven't. Chances are slim I would've remembered, though, ..." The Nord indicated Ezeran demon belly by pointed and circling his finger at it, "...even with that thing you have there."
  11. Heroica RPG - Heroica Hall

    Once the ale had been brought, Eric shoved a pint towards Petaldan and raised his glass. "Bottom's up, young one", the Nord said and drank his beer. Wiping his mouth and beard with the back of his hand, he chuckled at the young Knight's remark. "Bad guys can have shiny weapons as well, at least if they are smart enough to upkeep their equipment. The world isn't as black and white as you might think, unge" "Anyway, am I a hero? Yes, I have dabbled in the activities of a hero. I've slain many great beasts, such as a Basilisk and the Queen of Sirens. On many occasions, I also got the girl at the end. So ja I am a hero. My name is Eric, from the North. I am a Vindicator of Njordon, King of the Seas. What is your name?"
  12. Heroica RPG - Heroica Hall

    The doors of the Hall were pushed wide open and sunlight bursted in. With his usual swagger Eric the Nord re-entered the Hall after a long time. The Hall might've forgotten about him, but he had not forgotten about the Hall's free drinks. With a trademark cocky grin and rolling shoulders as he stepped Eric made his way through the Hall. His eyes went from left to right, scanning the faces of those currently residing in the Hall of Heroica. There didn't seemed to be any sight of Kheyli the Barbarian who Eric had met the last time he was here, nor was there sight of his friends, be it Jon, Hybros or Lawrence. Instead there were a lot of new faces, but none seemed to interesting. In fact, one even had a really ugly mug. Like he was dropped on his head as a baby and then stepped on by a mammoth. Eric chuckled slightly as he imagined the scenario. The Nord then caught eye of Jinnipher the Moon Elf. He couldn't quite remember if he had seen her before or not. She looked alright. More pleasing to the eye than most here. Eric stroked his beard and winked at her, then motioning a kiss her way. Chuckling he continued his way to the bar. Suddenly, the Nord stopped his stride and stood still, baffled for but a mere second. He blinked in disbelief, but then smiled wide. He hightened the speed of his step and marched straight over something he had not seen before. At least not in the Hall. Not in the South, anyway. At a table, sipping a glass of water sat a small child cleaning his shield. With a more joyful aura to him than was usual, Eric sat down at the same table. "Hail, little warrior", he said and then nodded towards the shield, "smart move, taking good care of your equipment. Your parents taught you well." He turned over to the bar and in a booming, but not aggressive voice shouted: "Maid, ale for me and the unge here!" Eric smiled as he waited for Scheherazade to bring the beers. The small child made him think back of his own youth in the North. Back home, when all was well. How proud he had been when he first received his sword. And how much more proud his father had been once Eric had drawn blood with said blade.

    I haven't been active these last few months, but I do pop in sometimes to see what's going on. I felt I needed to log on to congratulate you on the 5 years anniversary, Sandy. As many others have said here, you did a terrific job during all those years, managing a lot of Heroica stuff on your own. I hosted 1 small quest and another botched one and I already had my hands full with that, so yeah, I tip my hat to you for your effort . Thanks for the incredible experience, I had a blast playing here and being part of a bigger world .

    Eric walked into the Hinckwell Villa once again. His loss here left a bitter taste in his mouth, but at least he had lost from a friend and not some idiot member of a House. The Nord didn't stay for too long, merely purchasing a Cornucopia, an investment which left him with 1360 Gold afterwards.
