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.

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.

Review/AAR- Last Days: Zombie Apocalypse

Osprey was kind enough to send us a review copy of Ash Barker’s new zombie game, Last Days: Zombie Apocalypse. We got to spend some time at Adepticon, chatting with Ash about the game, and I was very excited to read the book and try it out. The game is sort of a love letter ... Read more


Tutorial: Spacecraft 3- Ventauran Assault Craft.

Here’s the biggie… This is not my favorite of the 3 Spacecraft I built for Adepticon, but it’s the one that I think is the most visually impressive. I painted it to match my Ventauran force which is green with orange accents. Ventaurans are a figure line based largely on Traveler Zhodani, created and produced ... Read more
