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...

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...

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...

A 15mm Figure Miscellany

Today feels like a good day to spam your attention with several hosts of 15mm painted figures.  We’ll start with the historical crowd, all of which come by way of Irregular Miniatures.  A unit of twelve light infantry for the British, with an even dozen tribesmen to match.  With...

A Thirst for Adventure

We’re still enjoying the freedom and excitement of Fistful of Lead. The universal nature of the rules allow you to throw figures from wildly different genres at each other with abandon. In today’s episode we threw a squad of modern-day adventurers into the desert.  They parked a little too...

Swashbucklers and Gretamorphs

Some clever wag over on the channel suggested a better name for my space demons, 10mm Pendraken figures, than greenomorphs. As green-loving and shrieking monsters, gretamorphs they have become. The dice decided on a simple meeting engagement, and here for the first time you can see the simple pleasures...

More Mounted Goblins

The goblin cavalry force compiled for use with the “Dragon Rampant” fantasy skirmish rules proved to be smaller than anticipated. They just don’t need a whole lot of special rules, and most cavalry units clock in at 4AP. For a standard, 24 AP game, you’ll need six units. Until...

Some Napoleonic Bigger Battles

More eye candy today, but from a historical perspective. These are from a mix of manufacturers. They are also from a variety of games.  All of these were played using Wiley Games’ Fistful of Lead: Bigger Battles.  Although it uses a lot more figures, something about it makes it...

Dragon Rampant – Orcs v Goblins

This post is largely eye-candy. An orc warband with a wizard, two giants, and three trolls – the latter two count as Elite foot in Dragon Rampant terms – makes for a very tough but largely slow force. Throw them up against a speedy army like the all-mounted goblins,...
