Melchior and the remnants of his warband link up with more survivors as they flee through the factory floor. A triggered mechanism brings strange ancient technologies to life however and the remains of the former workers begin to return to thei…
I plan to run an ACW game at PacifiCon in September which means I need to get some ACW specific terrain painted up/done. In order to motivate myself I got together with Roy Scaife and we put out the three brigades per side for the Union and Confe…
Chris (from Lords of War Games and Hobbies) and I complete our play-through of the Malifaux 2nd Edition starter set, adding in advanced skills, soulstone use and unopposed duels. I’m really excited with how well this two part series was received. It was requested a ton, but I didn’t really know how playing through […]

>The Joy of Six show is only a couple of weeks away, and you may be aware that Dave Luff and I are helping out Per Broden running some 6mm Saga games. To that end, we’ve been playing Saga again, after a break of 3 or 4 years. Last night we played a ‘proper’ game with some scenery on the table. To be honest, we simply set up the table in what we thought was an interesting set-up, not really thinking about the scenery set-up rules…more of that later. We played a 4-Point game, using the ‘Clash of Warlords’ scenario. Dave’s Viking force included: 1 Warlord 1 Unit Hirdmen 1 Unit Berserkers 2 Units Bondi My Norman force consisted of: 1 Warlord 3 Units Knights 1 Unit Sergeants with crossbows During the opening turn, both forces converged. 2 Units of Knights looked to reposition as the Vikings looked to be advancing down their open right flank As the Vikings advanced, the Norman Sergeants occupied a house in the village The Hirdmen continue to move up the street, and the Sergeants let loose at them with their crossbows, but all their bolts flew wide of the mark. (Although I did forget that crossbows reduce […]
To celebrate Sean at Metal King Studios shipping his awesome indie-game starter set, Owen from Gaming with the Cooler and I play another game of Relic Blade!
I hope this will turn out to be a fairly detailed 1,500 point, Maelstrom battle report. We used the new Supremacy cards and played the mission where we could score each other’s objective cards. We could only ever draw up to three cards. Help a (Tau) Brother Out Part 1 contains the lists for this Astra Militarum Vs Tau battle. Big thanks to all those who have contributed so far in part 1! Astra Militarum Vs Tau Battle Debrief I am hoping that this is detailed enough to show the main events of the battle. Plus key decisions from both sides, without being too verbose and overly detailed. […]

I’m sure you will agree that the hobby is full of talented individuals, whether they are authors, sculptors, painters, model makers…the list goes on. I’m lucky enough to know many such people, and I am constantly amazed by the quality of the work I see. However, every so often you see something that is, quite simply, stunning. One such moment happened last Friday. Ade Deacon and Alan Sheward (who are both known for putting on fantastic looking games themselves) went to play a game of Sharp Practice 2 (the new Black Powder rules from Too Fat Lardies) at the home of Jim Ibbotson. The encounter was a British vs French game from the Peninsular War, using Jim’s beautifully painted 28mm armies. Jim (Twitter name @LtHarryStocracy) tweeted pictures of the game during the day. Not only were Jim’s wonderful miniatures and terrain on show, but he showed that he was no slouch with the camera either as he took some fantastic photos. I exchanged messages with Jim, and was surprised to find that he currently doesn’t have a blog, so unless you follow Jim on Twitter, you may not have seen these. Jim has very kindly given me his permission to share his pictures on […]
This was the most requested game for a Let’s Play (after Infinity) from all the games I already produce content for. The reason was pretty simple, as a dice-less War Game, Malifaux is hard to pick up from simply watching people play if you don’t know the core mechanics. So enter a Let’s Play! in […]
We were having a go at Napoleonics with Jim. 200 points of Spanish vs French in an early Peninsular game. The Spanish hordes managed to hold their lines and beat back the higher quality French. Very nice game, the system is one of our favourites.
