Another little collection of D&D humour from the dark ages. A ranger who is wearing plate mail in a misty, echoing chamber: “I try to move silently…” An apprentice to a mage: “By the way master, I finally shot that pesky owl that kept following you around A party is fighting a band of thieves…

More Malifaux rankings

We’ve just started taking rankings from the Netherlands with the first of (I hope) many tournaments coming in from this country. http://www.potentiallylethal.co.uk/netherland-malifaux-rankings/ One thing I did notice; no Outcasts or Gremlin crews were there on the day… Gremlins I can understand, but Outcasts? If you are a TO from the Netherlands why not send your…

Manoeuvre dial upgrades

Found doing the rounds of the Internet this morning. It looks like the rumours of the Armada-type dial upgrades for X-Wing is coming true. From the look of the picture you would take your old dial apart and put the bottom half of the dial into the plastic holder then clip it together again. Bit…

Map for players around the world

Tabletop Gaming magazine review

Have just finished reading Issue 2 of Tabletop Gaming magazine and thought I would just put my opinions about it out there. I had a few negative thoughts about Issue 1, the whole Issue just felt like a rehash of Boardgame Geek with the one or two paragraph reviews. The other problem was poor editing…

Frostgrave warband

I got the rulebook for Frostgrave a while back now and was immediately struck with how this was the way I always wanted to play Fantasy battles, small scale skirmishes using a D&D-type system for a campaign. What took me longer was to figure out my Wizard and Warband. I eventually settled on Inquisitor Coteaz…

Casting Room Miniatures review

I mentioned earlier in the week that I was going to purchase some models from Casting Room Miniatures to make an ‘In Her Majesty’s Name’ crew. It had taken quite a while for me to decide which models I wanted to do this with but when I saw the Victorian range from Casting Room Miniatures…

In Her Majesty’s Name

I had just recently got the rulebook for In Her Majesty’s Name after having it recommended by several people I play other skirmish games with. Like all rulebooks published by Osprey Publishing it was well set out and the rules were very straightforward, also not a lot of rules to contradict each other or bog…

I’ve spent most of the day going through last years list of Store Championship shops and sorting out an email list to contact these stores and get details on the tournaments they are going to hold. The information I want are the details of the 2016 Store Championships for Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures, Star Wars…

2016 Store Championships

Kicking off this Monday’s look at these projects is: Wild West Horse Opera RPG I’ve always enjoyed games based in the Wild West and have…
