AAR- First Try With Space Wierdos

[Karl and I recently (…um, -ish?) had the opportunity to try out a game of Space Weirdos. What follows is a brief (…um, -ISH???) AAR of how the game went.  THE BACKGROUND In the years before the outbreak of galactic civil war, Tanjarax IV held a lot of promise- at least in the eyes of ... Read more


AAR- Kings of War Campaign Kickoff!

In an unsurprising development, It’s taken me a month to get around to putting up a brief overview of our first KoW campaign night. Better late than never… Being something of a terrain nut I enjoyed quite a bit of fun setting up the tables in preparation for the evening. Modifications were made by the ... Read more


Journey: Wrath of Demons- Cheap Beastly Chaos!

For the cheapskate gamer, boardgames can sometimes be an excellent, if under-appreciated, source of miniatures. This has been the case for many years (there are a lot of 1990s Battle Masters figures in my Chaos/Varangur army), but as production values increase, boardgame figures are being produced that rival some contemporary wargaming miniatures. Such is the ... Read more


Cheap Sprue Review: WGA Einherjar Space Dwarves and a Squat Roundup

Note that at this point ... Read more

I like good scenarios. While I’ll happily sit down with friends and play a game using whatever sextet of standard setups a ruleset provides, in my heart I want more. After a few monthly games of KOW with the rulebook scenarios, a 3 player game necessitated something special. As luck would have it, I had ... Read more


Unit Creation Mechanics- With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

No pictures today folks, just my musings on unit creation mechanics… Promethean Fire or Pandora’s Box? I was recently interacting on the One Page Rules (publisher of Grimdark Future, my choice for gaming in the 40k universe) Discord and I noticed the questions people have about unit creation. Though OPR does provide extensive army lists ... Read more


AAR- The Imprudent Kidnappers: A Song of Blades and Heroes Battle Report

A recent Song of Blades and Heroes game with my son became an impromptu scenario creation session when he presented me with a table full of forest with a river and bridge on one side. On the spot I made up scenario- The Imprudent Kidnappers  -which I recommend briefly reading over to understand what follows ... Read more
