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 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
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
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
AAR- Trying Grimdark Future With New Minis, Table and Terrain
I am continuing my campaign to indoctrinate my children into wargaming I introduced my son to Grimdark Future last month shortly before our trip to TMX. The Tau miniatures (his new obsession), terrain, mat and table topper were all acquired from Josh recently. I’ve never tried to put together a 40k-style ruined city, but suddenly ... Read more
TMX 2022- Thoughts and a Mech Attack Gallery
This June 4th and 5th, my son and I attended the Tabletop Minions Expo (TMX) in Oshkosh WI. It’s a very small affair put on by Adam Loper, host of the Tabletop Minions show. Differing from most conventions, it’s arranged as a gathering without tournaments in which gamers can hang out and showcase and demo ... Read more
