Wargaming Week 21/01/2019

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 14th through to the 20th of January. BLOG STUFF Nothing this week – it’s not really been a very hobby active time. NEWS On the other hand, so much news. Black Site Studios has released a pile of buildings suitable for Ultramodern Middle East battles. They have really focused on the more urban areas, and the first release is a nice pair of focal buildings as well as various walls. As with all Black Site stuff, these are prepainted MDF and so are ideal for getting onto the board quickly. But that’s not all! There was a second wave of releases focusing on smaller buildings designed to add to the battlefield, giving you a few smaller obstacles that will need to be fought around or through. Finally, great news for UK gamers! Spectre Miniatures will be stocking the Black Site stuff this side of the pond. Initially it will be for pre-order but there are plans to have them alongside the other things you mig

Kill Team Game

Mr Steinberg and I had a game of Kill Team recently, my Elucidian Starstriders against his Astartes Marines. This was a simple take and hold objectives game with one in the middle and four more dotted around. Some nice large crates had Voidmaster Nitsch and the Assassin make good use of cover to keep out of line of sight ready to charge heroically into combat. The trouble with holding an objective is that some poor chap has to go stand next to it in the open. Voidmaster Nitsch was not quite close enough for a charge so he moved up to try soem ranged attacks. Meanwhile, Elucia Vhane charged into the Marines, she is a tough cookie so can take care of herself. The Starstrider Assassin failed to charge a couple of times, leaving the Starstriders to get a bit outnumbered. The Assassin was still not charging. The Starstriders did manage to hang on to some objectives and squeak a win, but it was very close. Kill Team is a nice game, a great opportunity to work on a nice small group of models.

Wargaming Week 14/01/2019

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 7th through to the 13th of January. BLOG STUFF First up, I got a battle in on Thursday! As you can see on the post, it was an interesting game, both to organise and play. I’m looking forward to getting some more in! Also exciting was seeing that I’ve been playing Skirmish Sangin for 4 years this week. You can tell how much I like it by the fact it’s still my go to. I’m also seeing all the photos of my first painted models which are :|. NEWS Interesting news from Warbanner this week. They and Special Artisan Service Miniatures have partnered up to help bring SASM to the UK and the EU and make it easier for our American cousins to get their hand on Footsore and Warbanner. Warbanner also has a very good relationship with Sarissa, which could mean great news for anyone looking for more modern terrain. I’m not going to add my own comment to this news – but I wish everyone involved the best in t
