I bloody hate cavalry...… I have been sitting looking at the same cavalry unit for the best part of three weeks, if I can't break the back of them tomorrow they might have to be bounced from the queue for a while. I am not sure if it's the mass of horse flesh or the fact that I have glued the riders on first, something that I don't normally do in the painting process. Do we all have a touch of OCD when it comes to painting? Meanwhile we had a crack at Osprey's latest card game, a two player game with a number of missions from D-Day to play through, you use your cards to grab the initiative and use your squads to grab objectives I must admit it was a real blast and felt very realistic, very much a band of brothers feel to it, the early missions contain only rifle squads, but later missions introduce MG's Mortars and snipers.MG's are great at pinning troops, mortars are flaming nasty and you need to get a move on once the targeting round lands. Stick and move is the name of the game.Send your scouts out to cl
Their first skirmish behind them, the Vengeful Spirits continue to follow the ill-omened Pa and his kin as they move along to the next town.
A nefarious looking traveling Butcher and his family have been the cause of much muttering and rumour as they travel from town to town. This family business seems always to be followed by strange disappearances and dark stories. The Twilight Order, worried something unnatural is involved, sets off to investigate.

Joseph McCullough says so. Version 1.0 A casual perusal of Reddit this morning had this line catching my eye: Well, the news has leaked, so I might as well go ahead and make an official announcement.There will be a new edition of Frostgrave: Fantasy Wargames in the Frozen City coming from Osprey Games in June of 2020! Now, as you might have picked up here and there, I’m pretty bullish about Frostgrave, or the original Frostgrave, or Frostgrave 1.0 or whatever. I feel like I’ve definitely made back my investment in entertainment. It’s fun, engaging, and based around simple concepts. I’ve always equated a game of Frostgrave as being “all the fun action its from Dungeons and Dragons without any of that pesky roleplaying to slow it down.” This is probably over simplifying and being a tad unkind to Joe’s great design, which I have been an enthusiast of since I first bought it. With that said, I was scratching my head a bit when reading t
Behold! The Bastard’s Blade! Hrothgar and Redd race to the throne room of Barael the Bastard, chasing the shrieking enraged Half Breed. Cornered and furious at its wounding, it turns on both warbands as the ultimate treasures of the War-Mage are revealed!
You can’t say I’m not Johnny on the spot when it comes to trends. GASLANDS (the Osprey car combat wargame in the blue series) has been out for what, like a year now? I just got around to playing it for the first time last Saturday, despite it being this year’s new hawtness… GASLANDS has caught on with many communities and has an appeal across age groups and with non-traditional gamers. I think the appeal is in the easy mechanics and the artisan element with the vehicles. Everyone seems to be in to converting Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars into Post-Apocalyptic death machines. Some of them are pretty outrageous. The thing about kitbashing post-apoc vehicles is it’s habit forming. I should know, I have about 60 of them.. more than I’ll ever need, but that was for another game. So when John put the word out for post-apocalyptic death rides, I maybe had a few. The Raging Weiner enters into the fray versus John’s Mon
Back to town! Vince and his raiders have discovered another fledgling group led by Schoolteacher Mr Smith while searching for supplies. Mike from Epic Duck Studios brings his newly painted Survivors in for his first game.

OG Last Days Player Jason brings Hank’s selfless group to face Vinnie’s scumbags in Olympic National Forest as they stumble upon the raiders doing something terrible…
Just as I was preparing the latest batch of Haitians the latest distraction landed on the door mat. Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago, I only played the original game once it was a little heavy on the terrian side for my liking but when I saw the setting for
Finally! I’ve had my first foray into Rogue Stars. My bio-engineered simian mercenaries successfully bid on a contract to assassinate a civilian target on Valtius IV. No questions asked. A quick job for easy credits. What could go wrong!?-------------...
