Middle Earth SBG - Matched Play Second Helpings

Recently had a return to Middle Earth and had a re-fight of the Rohan vs Uruk-Hai game in a matched play game from last year (wow, didn't realise that was ten months ago).Similar forces and table set-up with all the bits supplied by Kev again, but this time myself taking the side of Theoden and Dave K playing Lurtz. Different scenario with this one's objective to being to control five or more locations on the table (plus points for taking out important bods).With both sides armies keyed to getting into combat quickly, the game started with a general rush to come to grips and Rohan getting the charge in to maximize impact of lots of cavalry.The game then produced a similar clash of the two lines with a few Uruk-Hai dropping to a the fair amount of Rohan missile fire, and the Uruks managing to unhorse Theoden in the first round with their shooting.The charge result of the Rohan cavalry was similar as before but much more pronounced this time with Rohan pretty much bouncing off the Uruk-Hai lines.Not s

Another Autumn Skirmish

Sunday morning and I could be found heading south of the river towards Sidcup, and that could only mean Skirmish. This is the Autumn iteration of the twice-yearly 'Toy Soldier Show' held in Sidcup Grammer school. It's not a big event, with less than a dozen display games and traders, but I always seem to come away from this event with something. As usual, I took my camera and shot a load of pictures but to be honest I spend more time chatting to friends than I actually do shopping. This time I was making a flying visit as I had the family in tow and we were heading out for the day. I still managed to take a few pictures.Colonel Bills - Postie looking to spend more money....and a view of Rays posterior sticking out from behind another customer.  The Trader Hall has been half-empty for the last three or four shows. I just hope it's not a trend as this could kill off what is otherwise an enjoyable little show.  A display of Sudan War uniforms and equipment. This show usually has a 'theme' wit

Alternate Stars – 28mm Science Fiction Miniatures

You can't have a science fiction range of this nature without at least one heavily augmented robot or cyborg type and this one fits the bill. Rather than shiny chrome and helpful demeanour, this individual looks more than a little menacing. [...] The post Alternate Stars – 28mm Science Fiction Miniatures appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 3

The younger plastic Ardboys have the tendency to have very large surfaces of armor, which can lead to the Space Marine effect. The Space Marine effect? This is the kind of boredom you get when you paint the same color on large areas for a long time. Although the new Ardboys also have many smaller […]

Lords of WarCry – Untamed Beasts, Part 1

Dull drumbeats roar across Jagged Savannah of Ghur, calling the barbarian nomads to arms. Wild warcries mingle with the animalistic roar of the great beasts and are barely distinguishable. It's time to go and prove to Archaon the Everchosen as relentless enough to join his legions. I've got into WarCry, too. I have been skeptical […]

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 2

Each Ardboy has its own name (even on the underside of the base) and individual character, but all have the same style of paint scheme. I often paint according to certain "recipes", in order to not forget how I did it and to get a homogenous look. With ordinary orcs I wouldn't mind, but Ardboys […]

Second Playtest of Star Schlock!

Star Schlock is designed to simulate the low budget, forgotten sci fi films and tv shows produced between 1968 and 1988 on the tabletop. I’ve got a soft spot for such gems as Starcrash, Battle Beyond the Stars, and Robot Jox, but Star Schlock should work for getting high brow fare like Battlestar Galactica, Planet of the Apes, Dune and Star Trek on the table as well. – John Sears, designer, on his blog “The 1000 foot General” John Sears ran the monthly Scrum Palace game this month. It was a replay of the playtest of his Science Fiction Skirmish game, STAR SCHLOCK. He had made some changes since the last game a couple months ago. Instead of playing the hapless planetary militia, I was on the side of the evil empire this time. I had two squads of expendables, pictured above, Captain Vrock, also above, and Murderbot, not pictured. Same cast of characters as last time.. the Baron, the Baroness, the Militia, the Doc, the Space Cadet.. etc. There were some new compon

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 1

The WarCry hypetrain is in full throttle in the vastness of the internet and we also heard the call to arms in the Chaosbunker. Personally I'm going to work on parts of an old project and continue with it, because I have a lot of unpainted minis lying around at home for Age of Sigmar, […]
