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. The points calculations appear to be the same, but it’s worth noting that with most units not having ranged ... Read more

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.

Facing them across ... Read more


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

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 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- Song of Blades and Heroes With My Kids

Last month I took my first stab at miniature wargaming with both of my children as I introduced them to Song of Blades and Heroes (SBH). They’ve never played a miniatures game with each other that did not have a board. Heroquest is a ton of fun, but it’s a whole different experience when you ... Read more
