Some shots from my Song of Blades and Heroes demo at a local game night.
The game itself went pretty well. I had a mother and her two children playing; the Brass Dwarves sat out the game (which is just as well considering that they are the ones I've got most personal ownership over). The game's objective was to steal treasure tokens from my 295 point White Dragon and possibly kill him. The dragon went largely unmolested during the game as these inexperienced players weren't able to set up a good combination attack to wound him. The mother and daughter both picked up the game pretty well and were able to tie the game; both the Greenskins and Romans did pretty well, probably due to being fairly balanced warbands. The Undead did not fair so well, largely due to their player forgetting to activate high quality models first (one turn he started with a zombie, rolling all three dice). I may have to run this game again, but I'd really like to get some serious (and adult) players who don't mind running a campaign game.

I'm running a game demo for Song of Blades and Heroes tomorrow, and I spent tonight painting up some Heroquest and metal figures for it. I'm rather unhappy with the mummy, but the Chaos Warriors, Sorceror, Dwarf Sorceror, and Chaos Dwarf Bazooka turned out pretty well.
I'm running a fairly simple scenario: four warbands try to steal treasure from a GM-controlled dragon; whoever gets the most of the board wins. Brass Dwarves, Undead, Romans, and an Ogre-lead greenskin warband will be competing against my scary white dragon. I've still got to get warband rosters and two more reference templates printed out before I head to the gaming hall.
