Unsung Heroes of the Horus Heresy: We Have Winners!

After a slight delay that was mostly my fault for not checking a calendar, I’ve tabulated the scores from the three judges, added up the totals, and we have winners! Before they’re announced, I’d like to commend everyone who submitted an entry – they showed genuine effort and a love for the hobby, and the race was, in several cases, quite close. I’ve got several new favorite characters now, even if none of them were from my beloved VI and VIIth Legions. I’d also like to thank our amazing sponsors, who have been super-supportive: Seriously, they’re all amazing. And now, the winners! Primarch: Best Overall in Both Narrative and Miniatures Centurion Cjarn of the Iron Warriors Fabricator-General: Best Miniature Siege-Breaker Jivan of the Iron Warriors Remembrancer: Best Narrative Hallinax the Kind (or…Soul-Flayer) of the Night Lords And those, ladies and gentlemen, are your winners. For those interested in browsing the entries, you can find each one below:

RDTN Episode 160: Fireball Island, Victorian Masterminds, Blackstone Fortress

It has been six years since we started this podcast and there is no stopping us now. We are having such a good time, we are having a ball and so we aren’t going to stop now. And to celebrate the 6th year, we are giving stuff away because based on how Marty assembles a leaf bagger for his mower, this could have been it. He survived and shared his exploits in this episode. Marty’s is joined by his oldest son, Adam, and they discuss the new Warhammer Quest game Blackstone Fortress. I got an early listen and I hope I get a play of this soon. I am sure he will talk some more about it with all three boys at home over the holidays. Fireball Island was on the table and it is what it is. What do I mean by that? It is a very light game that brought out the laughs. We were cheering more for the marbles than anything else in that game. I am sure as it hits the table more, we will discover some strategy and game play that we missed in the initial plays. Finally, CMON’s new game Victorian Masterminds got some plays. This i

RDTN Episode 158: Arkham Horror, Shadows:Amsterdam, Hail Hydra

The annual BooBQ event at Marty’s happened and we got not only our feedbags on, but we also got some gaming on. We were able to play the new edition of Arkham Horror. If you have never have played Arkham, recommend that you do, but find someone that knows how to play to teach you and doesn’t add house rules. The rules are tough to get through the first time, but worth the reward. The game can be really intense at times, especially when things might hinge on the balance of a dice roll here and there. Overall, a great gaming experience and a must have in the coop collection. We also got to play Shadows: Amsterdam, which was excited to play after seeing it at Gen Con. I really enjoy Mysterium and Codenames and, in my opinion, this is a smash-up of both games. If you enjoy the real-time mechanic in a board game, then you need to try this game when it comes out. Extraordinary Adventures: Pirates is a light racing game that is currently on Kickstarter and has funded. This will be one game where you can introduce pe
