Unboxing and Review – Test Of Honour (Part Two)

Posted on June 27th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

We looked at the core box contents in part one…now lets have a proper look at the miniatures…
In Part One we looked at the basic game elements and had a brief look at the miniatures now we’ll give the models a detailed look in part two…
The game is available from both your local hobby store (mines called Titan Games) and Warlord Games themselves should you be interested…
Test of Honour
Test of Honour is a skirmish wargame played with roughly 5-20 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a samurai hero along with one or two loyal samurai companions and a variety of clan soldiers.

The 6 battle scenarios included tell a tale of bitter clan rivalry, betrayal and revenge. The battles are designed to be played in order, forming an ongoing story, with consequences for the victor and loser of each game.

As you play through the scenarios your samurai will use new skills, and perhaps even take the shameful path of deceit and trickery to gain victory – such choices are the ultimate test of honour.
Samurai
Samurai – Sprue
The box set contains one sprue that can be used to make up to five Samurai. Here’s pictures of both sides of it.
Samurai – Instructions
The instructions give many examples of possible assembly combinations for the Samurai but there are so many parts on the sprue the only real limit is your imagination. It’s also possible to use parts from the other sprues as well.
Samurai – Assembled
I was fairly conservative with my Samurai builds but something more elaborate is easy to accomplish.

 Ashigaru Missile Troops
Ashigaru Missile Troops – Sprue
The box set contains two of these sprues that can be used to make up to five Bowmen or Musketmen per sprue. Here’s pictures of both sides of one of them.
Ashigaru Missile Troops – Instructions
The instructions give some examples of possible assembly combinations for the Ashigaru and there are many spare parts on the sprue. It’s also possible to use parts from the other sprues as well.
Ashigaru Missile Troops – Assembled
I built six as Bowmen and the rest as Musketmen (I only took pictures of three of the musketmen though).

There are certain in-game benefits to grouping models together in larger games and there are bases provided for this purpose.
 Ashigaru Yari Troops
Ashigaru Yari Troops – Sprue
The box set contains four of these sprues that can be used to make up to five Spearmen per sprue. Here’s pictures of both sides of one of them.
Ashigaru Yari Troops – Instructions
The instructions give some examples of possible assembly combinations for the Ashigaru and there are many spare parts on the sprue. It’s also possible to use parts from the other sprues as well.
Ashigaru Yari Troops – Assembled
I made several as characters to make the units a bit more interesting when three to a base and the rest as standard spearmen in various poses.

There are certain in-game benefits to grouping models together in larger games and there are bases provided for this purpose.

 So that’s it for now…at some point in the future there will be a gameplay review but not for a few weeks…
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
Should you ever choose to purchase something based on one of my features or reviews then it would be nice if you could let the company know where the inspiration came from…who knows…they might be grateful to the poor unappreciated blogger who sent you their way…if however I’ve put you off a product…well…you can keep that info to yourself…

Unboxing and Review – Test Of Honour (Part One)

Posted on June 26th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

This one caught my eye a few times and after receiving a demo at the recent UK Games Expo I decided to pick up a copy…
In Part One we’ll be looking at the basic game elements and a brief look at the miniatures before giving the models a detailed look in part two…
The game is available from both your local hobby store (mines called Titan Games) and Warlord Games themselves should you be interested…
Test of Honour
Test of Honour is a skirmish wargame played with roughly 5-20 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a samurai hero along with one or two loyal samurai companions and a variety of clan soldiers.

The 6 battle scenarios included tell a tale of bitter clan rivalry, betrayal and revenge. The battles are designed to be played in order, forming an ongoing story, with consequences for the victor and loser of each game.

As you play through the scenarios your samurai will use new skills, and perhaps even take the shameful path of deceit and trickery to gain victory – such choices are the ultimate test of honour.
Test of Honour – Box Cover
It comes in a nice box…that’s probably of no surprise…
Test of Honour – Booklets
The set comes with all the instructions needed to play the game as well as a simple campaign for you to play through against an opponent. The game mechanics are very simple though this in no way diminishes the tactical elements of the game. The instructions themselves are easy to follow with both diagrams and verbal descriptions of the rules.
Here’s a few sample pages from both the supplied booklets.

Test of Honour – Terrain and Tokens
The box contains some 2D terrain pieces as well as all the necessary tokens and counters you’ll need to play the game. Here’s pictures of both sides as there are ‘damaged’ versions of the terrain pieces and some of the tokens are different on each side…

…the dice contained within are specific to the game…

…there are also bases for the included miniatures as well as ones to form up to three models into a unit.

Test of Honour – Stat and Upgrade Cards
Their are two sets of each model stat card (the only difference is that they have either a blue or red flag in the corner).

There are also upgrade cards as your characters learn new skills throughout the campaign, injury cards and others for a variety of in game purposes…

Test of Honour – Miniatures Preview
Here’s a brief look at the miniatures before we go into detail in part two…

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
Should you ever choose to purchase something based on one of my features or reviews then it would be nice if you could let the company know where the inspiration came from…who knows…they might be grateful to the poor unappreciated blogger who sent you their way…if however I’ve put you off a product…well…you can keep that info to yourself…

COMING SOON! DC Comics HeroClix: 15th Anniversary – Elseworlds
With the 15th Anniversary of HeroClix, WizKids is excited to reveal DC heroes in DC Comics HeroClix: 15th Anniversary Elseworlds, coming soon!

Today, we visit an alternate reality featured in DC Comics HeroClix: 15th Anniversary Elseworlds where DC’s Trinity appears quite different from what we’re used to in a world where the cast of Planetary have villainous intentions.

This version of Diana Prince looks a lot different from Wonder Woman in both costume and dial design, but she still packs quite the Amazonian punch for just 40 points. She has the expected keywords of Amazon and Justice League, but she also has Detective and Scientist on this unfamiliar world. Diana Prince’s trait, Investigating Planetary, prevents opposing characters within 4 squares from using Outwit or Perplex as she explores the world of her foes. Plus, she can do a bit of sneaking around with Stealth to help prevent your opponents’ tricks.
AVAILABLE NOW! Best Equip Your Robot to Become the Victor in DiceBot MegaFun
WizKids is excited to announce the release of the card and dice game designed by Jeremy Kalgreen and Chris Volpe, DiceBot MegaFun, available now at your FLGS. 
In DiceBot MegaFun, robots fight for the glory of their human owners. Equip your bot with the parts to power lasers, bombs, drills, and more, as you do battle in rounds of simultaneous free-for-all-combat.
Designed for 2-4 players, this dice-grabbing, weapon-slinging, game of battling robots ends when one player’s robot is the first to receive 3 Victory Medals.
