Gobs For Smacking

Got a new faction for the miniature war game “Dragon Rampant” all painted up, and they are led by this brute right here. The backstory for this army consists of a nomadic tribe of goblins. That gives me an excuse to run an entirely mounted army. Fortunately for me,...

Dragon Rampant – Four Armies

Here they are – four full armies suitable for use with Dragon Rampant. All of these figures come from Khurasan Miniatures, with the exception of the wolf-hounds, which come from a mix of manufacturers.  Lesser Warbeasts don’t really fit into the theme, but sometimes you need to fill that...

Eye Candy

Sometimes fantasy games are more real than real life. That thought struck home as I played a couple of battles between Christian Knights and the Death Cult. I’ll spare you the moralizing let’s take a look at some fun action shots. Here is an aerial shot of big blocks...

The Army of the West

It took about seventy-five dollars and a month of painting, but I now have one full army ready to go for Dragon Rampant.  Naturally enough, as a human army ripped from the tapestries of 13th century Europe, this force could stand in good stead as a Lion Rampant army as well,...

A Few Initial Thoughts on ‘A Fistful of Lead’

I like it. Late last year I finally got around to ordering a couple of titles from the Wiley Games lineup. Having missed out on the hardback omnibus fantasy project, and curious about how Jay Wiley handles procedural, by which I mean random table generated, dungeon generation, my first...

Back to the Grindstone: A New Joyous Season

Today resumes broadcast of the best miniature wargaming channel on YouTube.  The Joy of Wargaming ends the long dark drought with a preview of what’s to come in 2022.  A few new wrinkles have been added to the lineup, but you can expect a host of games new and old, and...

Random Shots

 As we ease into the weekend, let’s take a look at a couple of preview shots of battles coming up on The Joy of Wargaming.  First up a look at Osprey’s “Black Ops” which features a surveillance fight gone wrong when competing espionage agencies arrive to gather blackmail from...

Finished Figs

 Just a couple quick shots of some quick paint jobs today.  My 15mm fantasy adventures needed some Bowman at home in the woods.  These DemonWorld figures have amazing detail for the scale. Best of all, you can order them individually. And what the heck the XCOM fan in me...

Nightwatch: The Airom Reconquista

Oh, those lovable, roly-poly weirdo beardo dwarves.  Always delving too deep.  That’s what the ladies say about them, anyway.  Over on The Channel we kicked off a second campaign of Patrick Todoroff’s “Nightwatch” with an easy mission to cleanse the desert of the plague of nasties that have been,...

Shots From the Long Hunt

Four heroes wade into the stinking mire of the great swamp. Follow the full action here.  This was the fourth mission in a “Nightwatch” campaign, a solo wargame that uses tower-defense style design to keep the player on his toes.  Waves of enemies every round force some difficult choices...
