The aptly named company BattleMats have just fired up a new Kickstarter for some new tabletop reversible mats. But you better act fast if you're interested! [...] The post BattleMats Launch Reversible Battle Mat Kickstarter appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
With the reveal of the Gloomspite Gitz battletome and the plethora of new models, my mild amusement has shifted into a fervent, feverish fascination. [...] The post Gloomspite Gitz – The Looniest Age of Sigmar Release Yet appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
In this Flip Through Matt takes a serious look at the Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica . He starts by bringing you up to date with the history of Ravnica and the tenth district before focusing on guilds. Click here to view the video on YouTube.

In this Figure Forge Matt assembles half of the Armoured Justice Posse – Morgan Earp 3 lawbots and a heavy lawbot. He does this in under 20 minutes. Click here to view the video on YouTube. I haven’t painted any of my models yet, but I don’t think these are going to be so detailed the I cant handle them.
The revelation has unfurled as of yesterday revealing the very first Warhammer Underworlds restrictions and bans for cards within the game. In a game that will soon feature a card roster nearing a thousand in number, this was only inevitable. Pegged as “the ultimate competitive miniatures game”, Warhammer Underworlds continues to sweep into hobby circles across the scene. Blending card play tactics with skirmish miniature warfare, it continues to rope in hobbyists by the boatload. You may have missed it, but we’re still enjoying it since launch. These changes are interesting and exciting indeed, but how could these bans and restrictions impact you? Might they hinder or bolster your deck or warband? Let’s do a little digging… The bans and restrictions will work in different ways. Firstly, these limitations only apply at official organised play events. You are, of course, welcome to play these cards in friendly games and more ‘structured’ events with the discretion of
I am of the belief that there is simply no such thing as a completely objective review, especially when it comes to board games. No matter how hard a reviewer tries, their prejudices and tastes will influence their opinion of a game. I say this because I absolutely adore Neuroshima Hex, it is easily one of my top ten board games of all time, and I think you should be aware of this before I start talking about Monolith Arena, a sequel/remix of the original hex based tile laying battle game.So if, like me, you are already a fan of Michał Oracz's game, here’s the short review; Monolith Arena is bloody brilliant and you should go buy it.No doubt most of you will be wanting a bit more depth to a review, however, so here goes.Read more »
In this Flip Through Matt Takes a look at Dungeons & Dragons Art & Arcana a Visual History. This is a pretty in depth overview of this book by Sam Witmer, Kyle Newman, Jon Petersen, and Michael Witmer. Art & Arcane is a complete history of D&D including everything from Chainmail to 5e. If you have been playing for awhile you will have several I remember that moments. Click here to view the video on YouTube. This book is so valuable – it makes me fell like a teen age boy again and I believe it always will!
Any other podcast would make a big song and dance about releasing their 50th episode. Not the boys from the PHC, because they weren’t paying attention and didn’t realise they had reached such a prestigious milestone.Instead they talk about four games that may well make their best of the year lists; Steve gets his arse handed to him by Arkham Horror 3rd Edition, Andy goes into a Deep Madness and Jon tackles Monolith Arena. Andy and Steve then quickly say how much they love Brass (Brarse), while Jon tackles the news and Steve’s delves deep into his sack, mail sack that is.Read more »
I wouldn’t say it’s entirely preposterous to propose that a sci-fi setting can sometimes be far more complex than a fantasy setting. Technology can impact worlds in ways unfathomable. For Blackstone Fortress, this is no exception. Warhammer Quest ventures into Warhammer 40,000 for the first time and tries to bring cooperative dungeon-crawling into the grimdark universe. It swaps swords and crossbows for boltguns and vindictor flamers. How does Warhammer Quest translate across? Does it work well? Or should Warhammer Quest stay firmly planted in a fantastical realm? As mentioned previously, I thoroughly enjoyed the previous romps within Warhammer Quest. Silver Tower and Shadows over Hammerhal gave me and my fellow adventurers hours upon hours of fun ending in raucous victory or sorrowful failure. These games, especially Silver Tower, were surprisingly simple and easy to get into after the first few turns. Venturing through chambers with your fellow heroes slaying monsters and solving puzzles provid
You’ll have to be resourceful, inventive and more than a little creative to succeed in Welcome to Dinoworld, standing on the shoulders of giants isn’t an option, even when that giant was your previous victory. Far, far from it, and so much like the dinosaurs from that movie I’m going to quote the hell out of in this review, you’ll have to find a way…to make those dice work for you.Read more »
Games Workshop have recently been firing on all cylinders with their releases. Each week it feels like there’s something else released that I’d love to own. Near all recent releases for either Age of Sigmar or Warhammer 40,000 both have been hitting me right in the wallet. However, for the first time in a long time I feel like Games Workshop have under-delivered on a release. After all the bluster, the bellowing, the shouting about the Ork releases for “Orktober” it feels like they weren’t able to quite conjure up enough to fulfil their self-devisedprophecy. Time Has Not Been Kind… I’ve seen a fair amount of folks online being underwhelmed with the Ork releases this month. Whilst the internet can make a spectacle of the worst behaviour and melodrama, I can somewhat see their point. Some of the Ork models are not aging well alongside newer models like the Primaris Marines of the Age of Sigmar Orruks themselves. Games Workshop howling at the top of their lungs saying t
It’s that time of the year again were our gaze is directed towards Germany and the Spiel game fair in Essen. We look forward to some of the exciting games being released at the world’s largest board game convention and have a look back at our predictions from last year.Let the rampant speculation begin!Read more »
