Beastgrave – Returning to Warhammer Underworlds

Does Beastgrave improve Warhammer Underworlds? I'd certainly say so. Is Beastgrave enough to breathe fresh life into the game? To reignite the flames in the "ultimate competitive miniatures game"? That, I cannot honestly answer currently. Time will tell... [...] The post Beastgrave – Returning to Warhammer Underworlds appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.

[Kinda Book Review] The Wars of the Jews by Flavius Josephus

This is a book I had on my list for a very long time, and I listened to it as a free Audiobook from Librevox.org. For those who do not know, Josephus was a Jew who chronicled the world during and around the Flavian Dynasty (Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian). First captured by Vespasian, he was freed and served him during the campaign. So this book is a report by someone who party to the events described therein, not someone far removed from them. Josephus began as a rebel general who fought against Vespasian in Galilee before being captured, enslaved, and then freed by him. So we deal with someone who was there, dealt with the situation and had first-hand knowledge. A few times in the narrative, he is sent to speak with the Jews to ask them to surrender to Titus. There are seven books with the narrative beginning around 200BC, through the period of the rise of Christianity, to the naming of Vespasian as commander of the army to punish the rebels by Nero, to the Year of the Four Emperors, to Titus' destruction

Sumo Gnomes Kickstarter Review

A game called Sumo Gnome should immediately conjure certain images to mind, primarily, that of a sumo wrestlers who also happen to be gnomes.  Obviously.  It should also bring some gaming assumptions along too.  This game is super small, super light and delivers a quick slap of dice based gaming combat.Two sumo gnomes square off on a tree stump, one gnome in the blue mawashi and the other in red (each stylised on a six sided die), the goal is simple; push your opponent off the stump.Read more »

Cruel Seas M-Class Minesweeper

After the decision fell towards the Flower Class Corvette as the large ship of the Royal Navy fleet, I was looking for a fitting counterpart for the German Kriegsmarine. My choice went towards the German M-Class Minesweeper. The Minesweeper was in competition with the Marinefährprahm (basically a landing ship) and the Vorpostenboot. The landing ship […]

Vauban Fort from More Terrain

When it comes to pirate settings Vauban Forts are greatly iconic "buildings". I have been wanting to add such a mighty fortification to my collection of terrain pieces for years. In this post I take a closer look at my recent acquisition: the Vauban Fort from More Terrain.A Vauban Fort has been on my to-do list - or let's say - to-have list - for almost as long as I am playing pirate games. However, most products are 3D printer files such as Laser Dream Works' Vauban Fort Series (see their video). And did you see Anton Ryzbak's mind-blowing fort?I came across the fort on Facebook and was immediately convinced by the photos. I did hesitate to spend the 195 Euros but in anticipation of our pirate campaign I decided to go all in. As is so often the case in our hobby, this seems to have been the right decisions since the fort is now out of stock and who knows if it'll become available again.The Vauban Fort is produced by Germany-based company More Terrain. The model comes painted in two versions: grey and be

Cruel Seas British Flower Class Corvette

In extension to the fleets of the Strike Fast! Strike Hard! starter kit I chose a large vessel for both sides. For the British that was the British Flower Class Corvette. Among the large British ships would have been a Landing Craft Gun or the armed trawler. The landing craft looked more like something for […]

MourneQuest Review

MourneQuest is based on the books of the same name by Garry McElherron in which a lad called Jack meets a clurichaun (not a leprechaun) called Cobs and together they accidentally begin to set loose the Nightmares who's only goal is to unleash the Shimnavore; a creature of ancient Irish legend of terrible power. Your role is to play as Jack, Cobs or one of their buddies to try to keep these awesome gribblies locked up forever. Fail and it’s bad news for everyone concerned.
