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.

AAR- Song of Blades and Heroes With My Kids

AAR- Marvel Crisis Protocol- Battle in the Subway

Michael and I recently got together to play Marvel Crisis Protocol. We set up a cool board using my new Black Site Studios Subway station. His evil Cabal force tried to destroy the city, while my small group of Avengers attempted to save the day. His force consisted of Ultron, Venom, Crossbones, Doc Oc, and ... Read more


AAR/Impressions- Marvel Crisis Protocol

Last night, I joined a group of regulars at Oak Lawn Comics for their inaugural weekly Marvel Crisis Protocol night. The game is usually played on a 3×3 board, so we set up a sprawling abandoned military installation on a 6×4 table, and played 2 separate games on each half. Brian and I played the ... Read more
