A Couple of Rules Reviews - A View of the Disunited Kingdom and The Zone

Taken from the Miniatures PageSkirmish Wargaming in the Late C20th CenturyWritten by Wayne BollandsISBN: 978-1-85818-758-756 pagesPaperback$29.00 from On Military MattersA new "Cold War Gone Hot" rules set has hit the market, and I've gotten an chance to take a look at it. The only reference to the novel series is that shares the name, and something of the premise, but no hovercraft or hard as nails snipers to be found here! It's a shame, because that series was very, very gameable, both from a RPG and wargaming perspective. The production quality was fairly good, and I was pretty chuffed with it when I first got it, but there were some issues. First, I wasn't too happy that some of the gear mentioned in the squad organizations was not stated out in the game. Granted, an M113 is probably very much like an FV-432 in game terms, but it's really kind of phoned in IMO, or one size fits all ATGM?!You can tell it's descended from "Living on the Frontline", and the game's system is very, very similar, if not identic

RDTN Episode 164: Raccoon Tycoon, Beta Colony, Terror Below

Sorry for the back to back long episodes. However, we have a good reason. First, Sara Erickson from Renegade Game Studios dropped by and wanted to tell us about Mike Elliot’s new game, Terror Below, that is currently on Kickstarter. Don’t worry, it is funded but if you have any doubts on if you are backing or have questions, maybe Sara will have the answers you seek. She also was subjected to a Rank’em, something we haven’t had the opportunity to do in awhile. Next comes to fairly lengthy discussion about two games that we go to the table. Raccoon Tycoon from Forbidden Games is a very enjoyable commodities game that is fast to teach and play. We also are finding that the various strategies work well so no set winning one and anytime we have an hour to get a game in, it is a good bet we will reach for it. If you want to try out a commodities game, we can’t recommend this enough. Components and art are top notch and the price at Miniature Market makes it tough not to get. Beta Colony by Rio Grande Games w

Warhammer 40.000 Killzone: Sector Fronteris

A bit unexpected a new Killzone was released, the Killzone Sector Fronteris. So far, the existing Killzones were based upon already released terrain kits and repacked them with a solid bargain. The Sector Fronteris makes use of the STC Ryza Pattern design, that were first introduced with the Realm of Battle Moon Base Klaisus and […]

Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper - Bandai 1/12 Scale Model Kit [Unboxing and Pre-Assembly Review]

With three projects on my plate including a recent unboxing of the VW Beetle, I wasn't looking to add to the worktable let alone do another unboxing so soon. But with all said projects being long term ones, I just felt the need for a quick pick-me-up project that didn't require too much thought in the execution of its assembly and painting process. Cue entry of the Bandai Star Wars 1/12 scale
