Coming Soon: Modern Rank and Flank

It’s been a while since I’ve thrown a game of rank-and-flank fantasy down on the table.  Dragon Rampant is more of a large warband skirmish game, and it lacks the nuance and subtlety of proper blocks of troops maneuvering about the green fields of battle.  Demonstrating the charms of Chainmail...

The Xenos Are Rampant!

Today is the day! Just in time for the release of Osprey’s latest hardback, “Xenos Rampant”, comes my new Rebel Miniatures fighting fifteens. This time I remembered to take shots of the primed figures. And I remembered to take shots of the vehicles that I bought.  Here’s a useful...

Goblins vs. Bromans: More Desert

The last time we looked at Dragon Rampant, we looked at how NOT to use Light Riders. Specifically, we learned that their speed was negated by heavily terrain laden tables. Today we check the null hypothesis, and throw them against the same foes, but this time with no mission...

New Game: Rise of the Orc Lords

Coming soon to a social media website near you, it’s the latest iteration in Braunstein technology. Starting already, but kicking off December 1st, we’ve got twelve volunteers ready to sit upon a throne of mammoth bones and direct orcish hordes in support of their Dread Lord’s crusade of chaos. ...

Dark Elves

Splintered Light is such a good miniature wargame company.  Clean scuplts with just the right amount of detail, tons of character, and so many options.  Today I’m bragging about my Dark Elf army for Dragon Rampant. Some time ago, I ordered the guys on the left.  Only painted six...

Bromans vs. Goblins: Desert Raid

Dragon rampant has a great little selection of units, all of which are based on how you use them on the battlefield. After seeing how effective Light Riders could be in the Fate of Stormbringer (poor Dubzaron), I wanted to see what a force heavy on the light cavalry...

BROSR Principles: A Primer

Over the last couple of years, the lads in the #BROSR have reinvigorated the ossified field of tabletop RPGs by incorporating the solid design principles laid down by the giants of the pre-1980s collapse.  We’ve spilled a lot of ink – and I’ve published a number of videos –...

Hawaii Birth Update

Back in August we noticed a shocking data point in the State of Hawaii’s birth statistics.  The lowest ever recorded number of births, occurring within a year of the introduction and forcible injections of the Mystery Elixir raised our hackles. But it could have been an anomaly.  Perhaps 2022...

Eddie’s Brovenloft

The man, the myth, the legend behind the lich, the myth, the legend posted his experience running Eddie But In Hieroglyphics through the Brovenloft meatgrinder.  The bad news is he posted it over on Twitter.  That site is so ephemeral and this thread so amazing, it seemed a shame...

Brovenloft: Lessons Learned

There’s a natural ebb and flow to conflict games, and D&D played right is no exception. The first BROSR campaign, Trollopulous, kicked off on a very slow note due to the lack of information available to all players.  Strict adherence to 1:1 timekeeping meant that messages crawled around a...
