Posted on January 19th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

After the massive pile of releases in November, December saw a bit more of a focused set.

Impressions: Round Of Fire Universal Skirmish Rules

Posted on January 12th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

As someone who reads a lot of rules, I should really starting asking for money every time someone calls their ruleset “revolutionary” – it would probably make me more than my current Adsense performance. In most cases people trying something new end up combining elements seen elsewhere in new combinations which do play in a … Continue reading Impressions: Round Of Fire Universal Skirmish Rules

New Angeles – First Impressions

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

The city falls.

Yesterday I went to my first JIGG (Japan International Gaming Guild) board game meetup since 2010 and it turned out there were still a couple of familiar faces hanging around, and a bunch of new ones of course. It was good being back and playing games! I started out playing a couple of games of Roll for the Galaxy, a game I own but have only played twice, and it reminded me of

Impressions: Under Fire Miniature’s West German Polizei

Posted on November 17th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

As much as I love many of the established companies, I’m always keeping my eye on what else there is. One company that has caught my eye is Under Fire Miniatures. They have a wonderful range of 20mm figures but more exciting for me is their small but rapidly growing set of 28mm stuff. At […]
