I played 3rd edition Kings of War by Mantic Games last night. This is a table top war game for two players. I haven’t played KoW for about three years and I was keen to learn the new edition. To cut a long story short I made several rookie errors that allowed Ed, my opponent,Continue reading “Kings of War – a game.”
Nigel Ashcroft came over for some WaT! action. We played a scenario where a fuel dump had to be destroyed/ defended. We managed to get 2 games in, both of us acting in each role. The idea was to shoot the big silver fuel tank and score 2 permanent damage hits. The fuel tank wasContinue reading “What a Tanker again!”
I played the second game in my Stargrave campaign against top gaming chum Steve. The first game saw me emerge victorious. Tonight was different. We played the Salvage Crew scenario. The first turn saw Steve’s gunner knock off 20% of my crew in turn 1. Whilst not the end of the world it did limitContinue reading “Stargrave Campaign.”
I’m painting Darth Vader and a few chaps from the SWIA box. I’ve had these for a few years but it’s sat on a shelf until my boy dragged it out. I’m using the figures for a Stargrave crew. Some “destroyed” markers for various tank games plus a spaceship/shuttle for Stargrave tomorrow.
Nigel popped over for a couple of games of WaT! Tonight. We’ve played a few times and last time my Panzer 3 achieved its fifth kill so this week I was permitted to bring a more powerful tank if I wished. I decided to field a STuG 3g alongside my Panzer 4. Nigel had aContinue reading “What a Tanker games X 2”
Just working on a simple but effective camo pattern. The dark brown undercoat went on unevenly. I will need a rethink
First game of WW3TY tonight against Dan Carroll . Using the Complete Starter Set I chose Soviets so Dan had USA. We took it slow and worked through the rules. Dan emerged victorious and we both agreed it’s a good system. Looks like another war games rabbit hole to disappear down!
I stumbled across a review of WW3 Team Yankee on YouTube. It was someone’s list of favourite skirmish games or somesuch. This tickled my fancy and I looked for other videos about TY. One recommended buying 2 starter sets because they represent such good value plus you have 2 A5 rulebooks so your gaming buddyContinue reading “Team Yankee.”
We played a new wargame tonight called Stargrave. A sci fi game that pits 2 starship crews against each other in a skirmish. Think Firefly or similar. There are plenty of reviews, unboxing video or game run throughs online if you are interested. I can recommend the game. We picked up the rules quickly andContinue reading “Stargrave.”
I bought this game some time ago in a sale. I’ve never played it. My son found it in the loft and asked to play it. This filled me with trepidation! You see, my son has no truck with following the rules. He selected Darth Vader as his character and UPGRADED HIM! It’s great toContinue reading “Star Wars Imperial Assault Game.”
