|I converted these 54mm figures from Bronze Age|
generics into cavemen so I could play "large"
games of Tusk. I never did finish that 54mm
mammoth ... hmmm.
I liked the mechanic because it allowed me to play the game solo; I enjoyed many a fun Tusk game. I sought out games with similar mechanics, and this led me to Two Hour Wargames which takes the whole action/reaction system a few steps further. I got heavily into many of their rulesets, and Tusk got tucked away.
Well, Hetairoi Wargames has been doing a few figures for Tusk, and he's doing it right; the fire looks great next to the other figures; the cavemen have some fun styling; I think there will be some great looking Tusk games in those figures' futures. So anyway, go check out Hetairoi's blog! (It's one of my favorite.) Here are a couple links to get you started with his Tusk stuff: Fire!, Elasmotherium, Cavemen, mammoth.
If you're interested in playing Tusk, the game was meant for 15mm figures (there were figures made specifically for the game), but it works with any scale with a few changes in distances. I think Irregular Miniatures still sells the game, along with the original figures.
