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

The Hobbyist's Review: Maggotkin of Nurgle Battletome

In which Jamie reviews a Warhammer Age of Sigmar battletome based on the opportunities it offers for creative painting, converting and army themes.Introduction Welcome to The Hobbyist’s Review, a semi-regular series in which I take a different look at Warhammer Age of Sigmar battletomes, old and new. For me, the most appealing thing about a new army, faction or battletome is the chance to put my own stamp on the models in creative ways. That can be through an unusual paint scheme, unique conversions or even an entire army-wide theme. Ideas can come from a wide variety of sources, but the intricate and evocative lore created by the Games Workshop writers never fails to inspire. The Hobbyist’s Review series considers Age of Sigmar battletomes based on the scope and opportunity they offer for the creative hobbyist, using the lore presented in the books as a jumping off point, and suggesting ideas that you might like to think about for y

Review & Unboxing: Wood Elves / Wanderers WardancersWarheim: Tancerze Wojny

Due to bad luck, I wasn't able to participate in this year's Warheim Fantasy Skirmish tournament but that doesn't mean I stopped recruiting models for my Athel Loren Wood Elves squad. Today I want to show you 3 new miniatures - the Wardancers of Loec. Before the destruction of the Old World, those were the models of Wardancer Lord (in the middle) and Wardancers Command Group (including the musician - drummer). In Age of Sigmar Wanderers army, they are still Wardancers and their leader is called the Bladesinger (in the middle).One won't be able to buy Wardancers in normal retail, so you need to "hunt" for them on internet auctions and usually they end up very expensive.Those Wardancers are made of metal and there are square base for them. You might think that those are quite old sculptures but the details are of a very good quality. Especially the Wardancer Lord makes a good impression and all of them have "scenic" poses and bases so I

Review-1/72 Dark Alliance Stalker set 1

Hi guysThis is the first in a 4 part review series of the Dark Alliance 1/72nd scale Post Apocalypse sets, Stalkers 1, Stalkers 2, Survivors, and Rednecks, this is the Stalker 1 set, there are 12 poses and 48 figures (this is the same for all 4 sets). The poses are excellent, all useful and nothing is wasted IMHO, the figs all have good physical proportions and all look natural, interestingly they are all of different heights and proportions but do not look out of scale with each other, the largest figure is the mini gun guy 25mm from soles of feet to eyes, the others range from 21-24mm, 1/72nd plastics have certainly come a long way, the sculpting on these guys is sublime, and they do not have that horrible 2D flatness that a lot of sets have.The plastic is a sand colour, I have sprayed white and given a black wash to pick out the detail for you, I have not trimmed any flash, so the moulding is excellent, they are a brand new release, so lets hope this continues on for a long time, the plastic is quite firm,
