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 KidnappersĀ  -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


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


Adepticon 2022 – The Adeptining?

Twenty-twenty…too? No way! Let’s get back to where 2019 left us and delve once more in to what is likely the best miniatures wargaming convention in the states: The return of Adepticon! This article will be a pic-heavy drop recapping my experiences at this year’s convention. I’m always like a kid in a playground at ... Read more
