AAR: Grimdark Gaming in Two Scales

A much delayed report…. On May 7th we gathered for gaming in our own corner of the Warhammer 40k universe in two different scales. Being CSW, we didn’t use Games Workshop rules for either, opting instead for Grimdark Future for the 28mm game and our own slight modification of the “Panzer 8 Sci-FI” rules for ... 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.

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

It’s time for the second Cheap Sprue review. This time we’re on a topic that is particularly close to my heart… Squats. Or Space Dwarves if you’re feeling generic.
