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...

Fantasy Campaigning Dun Rite

Using a Reaper Bones wood sprite figure as an evil personification of the deep woods and wilds are inimical to human life?  That’s unpossible! That’s what happens in this latest episode of “The Joy of Wargaming” wherein four intrepid heroes wade into the wilds to put paid to a...

Nightwatch – Spawn Matrix

 Nightwatch: Terror and Treasure in the Dark Corners of the World has proven to be a delightful little solo wargame that has kept your host occupied for hours.  Almost four of them so far, and I’m finally starting to get the hang of all the basic rules.  One thing that...

Nightwatch Roster Sheet

  My first Nightwatch. Since nobody else is going to do it, allow me.  If you’re ready to play Nightwatch, a solo fantasy skirmish game by Stalker7, then you’re going to want to use a more compact and efficient character sheet than those in the book.  They are fine.  They...

Halfling Upgrade, Livestock, and More

 Just added some odds and ends to the 15mm fantasy toolbox.  These are all from Irregular Miniatures. Let us start with some wildlife and a hapless porter making 1gp a day hauling too much gear down into dank holes filled with monsters. A bit of food and somebody to...

Fastasy Roster

My first playthrough of the one dungeon to rule them all exposed a few holes in the lineup.  The place lacked a decent missile threat and that all important ‘ambush factor’. To beef up the undead ranks, and make parties that lack a clericbreally feel the pain, my necromantic...

Scale Neutral Fantasy Terrain

Nothing helps sell the players on the notion of the dungeon as a place of pure, seething chaos like a good altar of evil, expect maybe TWO altars of evil.   Finding fifteens in the local FLGS (that aren’t remaindered Flames of War remnants) represents one of those fun...
