Space Weirdos: Review and Number Crunching
Following our first gamed of Space Wierdos, Reviewer Extraordinaire Mattias returns to give us an in depth review of the game. THINGS THAT MAKE SPACE WEIRDOS ACTUALLY QUITE GOOD: As I think I mentioned before and as you can probably tell, we had a great time playing this game. Greater, to be honest, than I ... 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 ...

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 Game 2
Last month we gathered for the second night of our Kings of War Campaign. There were 3 of us gathered so we settled on a 3-Way battle for control of a town that just happened to already be at one of the only places on our campaign map where our 3 factions could meet. What ... 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
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. Building a Squat army is one of my longest term wargaming dreams. I’ve started a few times and the truth is that I’ve got enough original ... Read more
Cheap Sprue Review: WGA Halfling Militia and a Classic Hobbits Roundup.
I recently discovered that McDougall Designs sells Wargames Atlantic (WGA) sprues separately. There are alot of Wargames Atlantic figures that interest me but I have no need for a whole box of 24-40 of them. So, I purchased a variety of single sprues and I’ll be reviewing them over time. Note that at this point ... Read more
AAR: La Maisontaal, Now With 33% More Evil!
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
