Rangers of Shadowdeep – Mission 2 – The Trees….


May 19, 2020 by wargamerchris


In February, before all the lockdown stuff started, I set up the small gaming table to run Mission 2 from Rangers of  Shadowdeep.  If you play the games, you’ve already seen this one in many versions – I just wanted to share my pics and show a little bit of how I brought it to life….

Rangers Shadowdeep Characters

I’m also posting my Rangers/ Companions sheets here – you can see how early in the campaign this is – very few skills or possessions beyond initial creation!

    Looks like a fun game with some beaut miniatures.
    I wonder, are you able to resize the photos in your post(s)? I wanted to put a link to your blog on one of mine, but the ‘thumbnail’ of the photos from yours are huge! I have temporarily removed the link as it stuffs up the formatting of my blog.
    Regards, James
