AAR- 12,000 Point Grimdark Future Battle.

The more experience we gain with One Page Rules’ “Grimdark Future” rules, the bigger battles we’re able to have. Last Monday we tried our biggest battle yet. Coming in at 12k points this battle had my Dark Angels (6k) vs. James’ Orks (3k) and Mattias’s Quar (3k). Even though we were playing a pretty standard ... Read more


After Action Battle Report: Age of Fantasy Battles- April 8th, 2024

On April 8th five of us met for a pair of games of Age of Fantasy. After a few meetings playing Grimdark Future, Age of Fantasy was an easy transition as the rulesets are essentially identical.

Gallery: Two Alpha Strike Games

Since the early 2010’s, CSW has played a variety of games with armies of re-based, pre-painted “Mechwarrior Dark Age” clix miniatures that we purchased in bulk after the demise of that game. The scale of these miniatures is alternately known as 10mm, N Scale or 1/160. That does make them significantly larger than the traditional ... Read more

A much delayed report…. On May 7th we gathered for gaming in our own corner of the Warhammer 40k universe in two different scales.

Welcome once again to an Adepticon recap! While this is just my perspective, other members of CSW may share some of theirs in future posts. First off, I get hyped for this convention! It’s wondrous to me and I enjoy myself every time I go. I also feel like each time I go I stay ... Read more


AAR- Kings of War Campaign Night 3. Big Battle of Baddies.

Presenting notes and gallery for the third round of our Kings of War Campaign! This was actually one large game on an 8×4 table. Newcomer to KoW, Mattias joined us, leading a smaller force of “Kingdoms of Man” green-armored human mercenaries who seem to have fallen under the glamour of Michael’s Slaanesh. Facing them across ... Read more


AAR- Halloween Fear and Faith Games- Zombie Evac and Escape From Weird Ones

Today we have a bit of catchup with some belated (Karl’s fault to be clear) battle reports from a pair of “Fear and Faith” games that Michael hosted. Both games were interesting takes on escape scenarios. Executive Order 50289476 of October 24, 2022 ZOMBIE INFESTATION – Area evacuation ===================================================================================== Execute Order (EXORD) authorizes continued DOD ...
