The new Fantasy drinking game from Games Workshop is out and there has been a lot of reaction to it. Personally I think it sucks, think the figures look like Space Marines with pinheads and am glad I brought all the Bretonnians I will ever need years ago – I will keep playing Oldhammer or … Continue reading Age of Sigmar – Videos. →

I wanted to jot down some of my thought on Age of Sigmar. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Age of Sigmar is Games Workshop’s new Fantasy game. It is replacing Warhammer Fantasy Battles and is essentially an extension of The End Times they recen…
La verdad es que hay que ver primero, leer las reglas y todo eso. Pero las minis que se vieron me gustaron muy poquito. Y mi sensación actual con la Era de Sigmar la podría poner en este meme:
(In english: I will have to see the rules, and all the stuff. But a priori the miniatures that we could see didnt like to me, and the meme tell much of what I think about it)

So much time has passed without me starting a new project, let’s change that now! I picked up a box of Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy Longbeards – oldest of the dwarf warriors from the Old World. And yes, I was totally inspired by this amazi…
Another model that took me a lot of time.. When I came back to it recently I just wanted to finish it of. Why? The palanquin was a nightmare to paint! It was so annoying that in the end I tossed it back to the closet of shame and decide to build the ki…

Next stuff to be painted
Painted up this cool vampire Lord today. The client didn’t want the little bat thing on his back and wanted the rapier turning into a normal sword which was simple enough He was quite enjoyable to paint using a variety of techniques such as sponge stippling to add some natural texture to his wing arm which was then toned down […]
Here are some ideas for a narrative map-based campaign I will start with Krüger and Sven this week. It’s a first draft. Comments are welcome.
We will use different rulesets like HotT and Warhammer to play out battles, maybe even GURPS for special scenarios.
I play ancient Greeks who just landed on the island of Waltrop. They start on hexagon 32. Sven plays Greeks who start on hexagon 61. Krüger plays Orcs. He will choose 5 hexagons in secret to place his villages. Until the Greeks find the Orc villages hidden in the jungle, they fight random encounters which could look like this:
random encounters beach
random encounters jungle
1 green creatures
4 cannibals wearing scary masks
5 field of magical green crystals or old temple
If the Greeks win a random encounter, they occupy the hexagon they fought in, otherwise they retreat.
After the first orc village has been discovered in the jungle, the Orcs will start to move on the campaign map the same way as the Greeks. Random encounters for Orcs could include other tribes of savage Orcs and Greek warbands. If Orcs and Greeks meet in a hexagon, they fight for it. The looser has to retreat.
How an army fights and which hexagons it occupies should have a relation to the composition of the army.
In the 4th edition of 40K there were good rules for upgrading units or characters that fought especially well.
In our case, switching between different rulesets might present some difficulties. HotT is much more abstract than Warhammer, and GURPS would be best to play out special missions for characters.
At the beginning, armies could have some restrictions. Orcs might need to own hills to field trolls and giants, for example, and Greeks might need a temple to field priests. We could allow players to build havens, temples, even cities, but then we need some kind of monetary system. Will players receive gold if they sack a village or camp? I need talk to Sven and Krüger about this.
This Easter NatCon was run in Auckland and ACG Club had the privilege to host 9 systems and a whole lot of board gamers over 3 sumptuous days. That’s some serious gaming in anyone’s terms and it was glorious. There were travelers from as far as Austral…
