Ostritz, 1813.

Last Thursday we had first game with a new version of Black Powder. This time we decided to play the rules as it has been written, so we did the original sequence of play. I have to admit, that despite my seven years experience with this set, this was  my first time I did it that way and I liked. However was it realistic, I doubt. Sadly my copy arrived yesterday, so I did not have a chance to read the rules before the game, but Bill managed to do the comparison of both versions and with that I was able to play it without any hussle.W ostatni czwartek mieliśmy pierwsza grę z nową wersją Black Powder. Tym razem zdecydowaliśmy się rozegrać grę według zasad, tak jak zostały one napisane, więc z oryginalną sekwencją gry. Muszę się przyznać, że pomimo mojego siedmioletniego doświadczenia z tymi zasadami, był to mój pierwszy raz by rozegrać je w ten sposób i nawet mi się to spodobało. Jednakże, śmiem wątpić w realizm takiego rozwiązania. Niestety moja kopia zasad przyjechała dopiero do mnie wczoraj i nie mogłem

The Haul Report 153

Hello everyone to another addition oversight to the collection.And this week, I kept it modest with only an old second hand book dropping in my mailbox, all the way from Poland.War of the Ring is the nowcouple of years old 'mass battle' game system for the Middle Earth SBG, and allows you to field big units of troops.  While totally different yet familiar in gameplay (according to some you tube vids I've seen so far), this can reward the huge collection people, AND make life easier for huge battles.  I know from the Helm's Deep we did in 2003 at Crisis (see the header pic of the blog at the moment), the model on model pairing was a a pain for these sorts of endeavours, and to that end I went out to hunt for this book.I found it in the end on a Facebook group; so next on the hunt target is the other end of the spectrum, the Battle Companies book.. so hopefully you'll see that pass by soon as well.

Warhammer 40k Kill Team

It’s been some time since I last played any form of Games Workshop game. For a lot of us in my age bracket, we have fond memories of Rogue Trader followed by what felt like corporate manipulation of a game and hobby leading many of us like myself into alternate games for the tabletop.Despite my bad blood with old GW, I played a game of Kill Team with our local gaming group and had a good time.There are some distinctly different things for this GW game, a lower cost in time and money to play, only 5 models needed for most teams at about $50 with the rulebook and some terrain pieces.The game runs quickly, with an I go you go turn style set in phases. Quick reference sheets are available for free online to speed game play and detailed stat cards mean very little reference back to the rule book itself.Because of the low number of models, there is space for customizing and adding some flair to your team. You can randomly generate names, temperaments and games can be played in an ongoing campaign where territory a

Adeptus Titanicus

Since Adeptus Titanicus has been released I have not done much with it.  I built all my models but have not played the game yet.  I did find some time to paint up 3 Knights and had fun painting the models.  The colors I am using are not specific to a house and I am just doing my own house.  I have a few Reaver models primed up and ready to go however I have another project on my desk at this time.  I plan to spend the rest of 2018 focusing on this game and getting it on the table.

Top 10 Board Games 2018

Top 10 Board Games 2018 10. Unbroken “Not all adventures end well. Some groups meet their untimely demise at the hands of monsters all too soon, and Unbroken is a story of one such ill-advised expedition. You, the player, take on the role of the sole survivor of that failed adventure.

Today we visited the Graves of 3 Rorkes Drift Defenders 2 in Runcorn and the third in Liverpool .Thomas Taylor and Thomas Moffat in Runcorn and Thomas Burke the one  in Liverpool .A strange coincidence all shared the same christian name , Moffats grave was very nice with a small engraved image of the defence ,Taylors was a little hard to find and is very worn .Burkes was also weather worn but still very impressive . This brings us to a total of 31 graves of the RD defenders graves visited plus another 15 from other AZW battles .

Reavers Ready to Roll

The forces of the Legio Gryphonicus and the Legio Mortis grow!This post sees all my Reaver Titans finished and ready to go for Adeptus Titanicus. Hooray! I couldn't be happier. The Reaver kits are very nicely done, but just a bit more of a chore to assemble than the mighty Warlord Titans. I guess this goes with how I enjoy painting models more than building them - I found the work of magnetizing the weapon arms and working out the posing more of a chore than actually getting paint on the Reavers. Thankfully, these kits are a dream to paint once you've put in all the effort to assemble them.The Titans Bellum Est Dominar and Ulalate Furoris are joined by the second Reaver, Ferro Interitus.I did the checker pattern using a technique I saw on Twitter - I useda stencil ordinarily used for painting finger nails! Cheap and easy to applyit gave me a really nice base to work from. After filling in the stencil, itwas a simple matter of removing it and then neatening up everything witha brush.The forces of the Legio Mor

Some impromptu Lord and Lands

I hadn't seem my good friend JB in a while but he managed to come up into the hills this week. We had no fixed idea of what we were going to play, but my wee lad suggested we play Lord and Lands, insisting JB lead his Legion of Super Evil.JB's Legion set up in a tight cluster with only his spider riders off on his left flank in the woods (top right of the photo). My halflings were much more spread out. Foolishly I had slow halfling militia on my left flank, and slow tree-folk on my right flank. Even more foolishly, I intermixed the slow bowmen, with even slower artillery. After the opening couple of turns, it became clear that my maneuverability was going to be questionable (with the exception of my poultry patrol skirmishers), and the Legion of Doom were going to play hard to get, refusing their right flank. The wee dude left us at this point for bed time.Eventually I got into a position where my halfling skirmishers and poultry patrol could start shooting, and before they could do anything, the night e

Nid list thoughts, input appreciated!

Hi all!So last time out I set out how I'd made a decision (with your help) to go with Tyranids for my next army choice, so this post of course is all about my thoughts on building a list with them. Now I'll qualify all this with a simple statement to start with. I don't have the codex yet. So all of my knowledge comes from a combination of battlescribe, and 1D4chan.I've talked before about how I go about putting an army list together, and I'm following those same broad steps with this army. I should also just say however that thanks to the ease of putting lists together with battlescribe, I've already written several lists etc so some of these thoughts will be going over ground I've already crossed, whilst others are fresh. They are all up for discussion however, and for those of you with experience fighting with/against Tyranids I'm really hoping you'll be able to give me some insight into what I've said/thought.Without further ado then, let's look at how I wrote my list (ps, this is the second version of th
