Clans of Caledonia Review

Whenever I visited my gran’s house, she always had a ropey old tea towel in her kitchen, presumably from around the time when Robert the Bruce was a lad, depicting hairy “coos”, big red-headed strapping men in kilts and the odd wild Haggis. It is this romantic image of Scotland that stuck with me through my life until I lived there and found that it’s actually an accurate depiction of the place and the image on the tea towel was presumably a photograph, much like the image above.

Monster Lands Kickstarter Review

Monster Lands Kickstarter Review
Monster Lands is a bit of a tease.  Its cartoon artwork and cutesy graphic design are nothing but a honey trap, luring you in with the promise of a cute game for all the family but you will soon come to realise that Monster Lands is a meaty grown up game of resource placement and second guessing your opponent.  However, even that veneer is misleading because behind Monster Land’s euro game appearance is a game where the roll of a die can change everything.

In Monster Lands you must hire a group of mighty warriors to defeat fearsome monsters and conquer lands in the quest for glory and reputation.  I’m not going to try and explain every rule and mechanic for Monster Lands, because believe me when I say there is a lot going on in this board game.

Review: Zoo Ball

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

In today’s review, we look at a product that does not actually contain minis. Instead, we are looking at the board game Zoo Ball.

A big thank you goes out to Osprey Games for sending me this product for review.

Zoo Ball Board Game Review
Zoo Ball Review

Zoo Ball by Osprey Games

Zoo Ball is a nice, simple and fun dexterity game where players control a team of three “blockers” and one “scorer” and try to score goals before their opponent. When someone scores, the game resets and everyone starts over again.

This is a game for two or four players. Please note the “or.” There is no variant for three players.

In the two player version, you use the circles on the board as the goals. The big circle is used as the goal for people that may need some advantage (such as kids), while the smaller circle are for those more confident in their skills.

when you set up, you always place your scoring disc (the one with the orange sticker) in the middle of your circle. You may place the “blockers” wherever you wish on your side of the field.

Zoo Ball the Board Game
Above is how I set up my pieces for a two player game. The rabbit is my scorer while the other three are my blockers. 

On each turn, players may flick either all three of their white disks, as pictured below, or they may flick their scorer. Once the pieces are flicked, the turn flips to the opponent.

You may flick all three of your blockers in a turn. 

…or you could flick just your scorer. Only the scorer may actually score a goal.

With two players, this game plays fast and fun. With four players, it plays just as fast, but much more chaotic. Below is the starting setup for four players.

Zoo Ball with Four Players
Above is the set up for four players. You may set up your pieces however you wish in the semi-circle. The triangle is your goal that you are protecting. To score, you need to get your scoring piece into the goal directly across from you. In the picture above, red is trying to score on blue and black is trying to score on white. 

Personally, I had more fun with the four player game than the two player game, but that might be because of the company that I had over. It was a great group of people and it had been a while since we saw each other.

As you can see below, the game gets hectic with more players. All those pieces are on the board after just the first turn.

A four player game in progress after the first pieces are flicked.

Overall, this is a good game. That said, I do have two criticisms of the game. The first of which is price. The game retails for $40 Canadian, $30 American or £21.99 for my friends in the UK. When I received the box, I thought it was a pretty light game for that price point.

Upon opening the box, I found a folded up gaming mat, some playing pieces, a number of stickers and a very small rule book. Below are some pictures of the contents of the box.

Upon opening the box, I found a folded up gaming mat. 

When you first receive the game, you have to put the stickers on yourself. I have already done that with my copy.

Under the rulebook is a sticker sheet. They give you more stickers than playing pieces so you can choose which animals you want on each team. Presentation wise, it shows nicely.

My other criticism of the game is its playing mat. For some reason this mat holds creases. In the rules, it tells you not to iron this mat – so you may end up wondering how to make this mat flat.

Before playing for the first time, I flattened the creases with some heavy books. That worked to some extent. I also heard that you can fold the mat in the opposite directions of the creases to reduce the issues with the folds.

In subsequent games, I just took the mat “as is” out of the box. The picture below and the ones above are all without taking steps to straighten out the mat. Now, to justify the effect of the creases, I went into further games that the creases are there to simulate rough terrain.

While the mat takes creases, it also works. The pieces slide across it nicely.

The play mat can be susceptible to taking on creases and folds. This can either be something annoying to some players, or a more challenging way to play for others. In the pictures above, I did not take any special measures to take out the creases. 
If the creases bother you, you can try to flatten them with books (which works to some extent) or by folding the creases in the opposite direction (untested by Must Contain Minis). 

Despite my criticisms, Zoo Ball is a good game. It is fast, simple and fun. The cartoony artwork has its appeal and the pieces slide across the mat nicely.

While the price might bother some people, I am sure there are others to whom this won’t be an issue.

There are two groups to whom I would recommend this product. The first is to family with kids. I could envision this game being a lot of fun to play with children. The second is to the people that just want something quick and simple that sets up and plays within minutes.

If you are interested in learning more about Zoo Ball, I embedded some YouTube Videos by Osprey on how to play the game.

Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!

Review: Deep Cut Studios Print-O-Mat

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

Rating: Over the last couple of year, game mats have become have become a common accessory for players of all sorts of tabletop games, be it Miniatures Games, Boardgames, Card Games or Role Playing Games, with neoprene backed mats (mousepad material) seen as the premium product choice. Up until now, these mats have primarily been available as an out-of-the-box product with a fixed format – whether it be a terrain mat for wargaming, marked out pitch for a tabletop sports game or a cool picture for your card mat. Custom printed gaming mats were also seen as premium add-ons for many miniature-related kickstarter projects. Deep Cut Studio have just launched a new service for printing custom gaming mats – Print-O-Mat. This service has been launched as a result of customer feedback, and features an easy to use interface for uploading your pictures to DCS’s website. If you are wondering how to generate a picture, Deep Cut have added a couple of FAQ entries to their website: Obtaining a picture to print on my game mat Resizing my picture to fit on my game mat of choice I was given the opportunity to obtain a review sample of this product, including use […]

[ENG/PL] The Painter Grip for miniatures and models / Uchwyt do Figurek i Modeli (HobbyZone.pl)

Posted on October 11th, 2017 under , , . Posted by


Hello my friends!

        My fiance recently said that my painting office is like a pigsty. Pigsty? Can not be said. This is an “artistic disorder“, a place where everything is in place, albeit in a controversial way. Word was said and milk was poured out.
        I decided to put myself in the hands of HobbyZone (Look at the manufacturer’s page – they’ll enchant you!), specialists of accessory for modelers and hobbyists. And so I received some gifts, the first of which I would like to review for You today.


Witam wszystkich ogromnie serdecznie!

       Moja narzeczona powiedziała ostatnio, że moje biuro do malowania przypomina chlewik. Chlewik? Nie może być odrzekłem. Toć to “artystyczny nieład“, miejsce w którym wszystko jest na swoim miejscu, choć w kontrowersyjny sposób. Słowo się rzekło i mleko zostało wylane.
       Postanowiłem oddać się w ręce specjalistów od akcesoriów dla modelarzy i hobbystów i napisałem do HobbyZone (zajrzyjcie na stronę producenta- oczarują Was!) I tak oto otrzymałem kilka upominków, z których pierwszy chciałbym dziś Wam zrecenzować.



Main Features

All handles are handcrafted with care for the most demanding modelers.

  • The product is covered with natural leather, which is perfectly felt while painting.
  • Desktop base to hold grip upright.
  • Grip onto figures and miniatures to provide maximum level of stabilization (maximum width of gap – 5mm).
  • The Grip can be placed in two positions – vertical and slightly inclined. 
  • Dimensions of the product: 15cm x 4cm x 2.5cm.
  • Price below this link


Główne cechy produktu


Wszystkie elementy Uchwytu wykonane są ręcznie z dbałością o najbardziej wymagających modelarzy.

  • Produkt pokryty jest naturalną skórą, co doskonale czuć podczas malowania.
  • Podstawka, która pozwala na bezdotykowe malowanie figurki lub modelu.
  • Szczelina stabilizująca o maksymalnym rozwarciu do 5mm. 
  • Uchwyt można postawić w dwóch pozycjach- pionowej oraz lekko pochyłej. Ta druga jest na tyle stabilna, iż praca z figurką metalową nie wpływa na drganie całej konstrukcji.
  • Wymiary produktu to: 15cm x 4cm x 2,5cm.
  • Cena pod TYM linkiem


Overall impression

The handle is ready to work right out of the box. You do not need to glue or fold it.
Additionally:
  • The Grip is comfortable and secure (we can put deep into the cabinet of the plugs which we often glued figurines).
  • A stand that solves the problem of the need to release hands or vibration caused by long-lasting paint. Now, we can stably place the model in the holder and then take a break or paint it in a non-contact manner.
  • The gap in which we easily fix each pin with a model or another “stick” at the figurine. The knob at the top of the Grip with the HZ logo controls the clamp that holds your figure or model.
HobbyZone‘s Painter Grip I recommend to all modelers, artists and my friends involved in DIY.
Perfect for working with models made of any material, and the convenience of holding will allow us even for long hours spent with brushes.


Ogólne wrażenie

Uchwyt gotowy jest do pracy od razu po wyjęciu z pudełka. Nie trzeba go sklejać ani składać. Dodatkowo:
  • Uchwyt trzyma się wygodnie i pewnie (możemy odłożyć głęboko do szafki korki na które często przyklejaliśmy figurki).
  • Podstawka, która rozwiązuję problem potrzeby zwolnienia rąk lub drgania spowodowanego długotrwałym malowaniem. Teraz możemy stabilnie odłożyć model w uchwycie i z tego miejsca zrobić przerwę lub malować dalej w sposób bezdotykowy.
  • Szczelina, w której bez problemu przymocujemy każdy bolec z modelem lub inny “trzymak” przy figurce. Nad wszystkim czuwa  pokrętło do regulacji szczeliny z logo HobbyZone.


Uchwyt do Figurek i Modeli od HobbyZone mogę bez obaw polecić każdemu modelarzowi, artyście plastykowi czy moim koleżankom zajmującym się DIY.
Doskonale sprawdza się w pracy modelami wykonanymi z każdego materiału, a wygoda trzymania pozwoli nam nawet na długie godziny spędzone z pędzlami.

Chaos Master of Crusade Miniature by Grim Skull Review

Posted on October 9th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I first saw this model a few months ago and my jaw hit the floor. It’s easily the best rendition of Abaddon the Despoiler Chaos Master of Crusade that I’ve ever seen! I don’t do impulse buys, so I pondered buying it for a while before I finally pulled the trigger a few weeks ago. I had to have it! The Price The Chaos Master of Crusade is priced reasonably in my opinion. At the time of purchase it was €29.99, and the international shipping was €4.99. So, after exchange rates I paid around $42 for it shipped. Now, that is…continue reading

Now that most of the rules from the new Codex Astra Militarum have previewed/leaked online, it’s time to start our proper Faction analysis. This will not be a straight regurgitation of the leaked rules, but instead a more analytical look at how the new Codex affects the Faction in competitive Matched Play. We’ll start our analysis with Cadian versus Catachan mathhammer.

Review: Forager

Posted on October 8th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Rating: Forager opens with an excerpt from the account of Lieutenant George Drummond Graeme of the 2nd Light Kings German Legion of the battle at Le Haye Sainte in 1815: “There are countless tales written by soldiers of the Napoleonic Wars, many highlighting that some of their experiences were forged on the anvil of single combat; combat that was fast paced, bloody, very personal, and a microcosm of the great battles that raged around them. Lieutenant Graeme’s experience is one such account. Forager brings those brutal combats to life, allowing players to recreate not only the small skirmish actions known as the ‘little war’, but also the combat engagements described by brave George Graeme.” Forager is designed and written by Adrian McWalter and Quinton Dalton. Those names maybe familiar, as they previously designed the Napoleonic rules Over the Hills, and Adrian has also written the Albion Triumphant and A Clash of Eagles expansions for Black Powder from Warlord Games. Forager is a departure from Adrian’s previous work, as it deals with a small number of figures per side, although the action is still firmly rooted in the Napoleonic Wars, in this case specifically the Peninsular War of 1808 – 1814.

Blood Bowl Releases

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

There are still a number of Blood Bowl Figures on the workbench in various stages of completion. Despite being in the throws of Zomtober, I still keep looking at them.  It’s Blood Bowl that is really taking up much of the rest of my Birthday list (soon to rechristened the Christmas List). I have a bit of sitting around time so I was looking up what’s new in the world of Blood Bowl.

The answer wasn’t much…But there is a bit of promise out there. Whilst there is nothing new on the GW there is some stuff on Forgeworld site.

I did a post about a Minotaur big guy which is now out along with the counters for a chaos team. Then I found that there is a chaos team with all the bits in one box.  Chaos was always one of my fave teams so I guess I will take a punt when I next get the urge. I am not sure that I would buy the tokens at £8 when a whole team is £20 but they look pretty good.

On the downside, the elves are coming. I hate elves. A mate of mine, Martin, loves them and all his characters were either elves or behaved like elves if the game didn’t have them in it. This may be why I hate them. Uppity, smug, arrogant and annoying. Yes Martin, I am talking about the elves.

Now I am a completist so I will get round to buying them. This is not a big ask as the figures are really, really nice.

If I can make them look this good, I might actually have to play a game with them. the only time I have used the elves I have is to practice against them. The Christmas list will just have to get bigger.
