Age of Sigmar Skirmish - The Ironjawz

The New Games Workshop™ has been doing some exciting things this spring - obviously hyping their 8th Edition 40k release - but also putting out skirmish rules for their mythological fantasy game Age of Sigmar.

This comes at a good time - lots of GW fans have been pretty excited about Age of Sigmar, and producing a skirmish set allows new people to try it out with minimal investment. The rules seem to be just like regular Age of Sigmar, you just take one dude instead of a whole unit of dudes.

Warhammer 40,000: Opinions On a Small Amount of Information for 8th Edition

If you've been under a rock, the new edition of Warhammer 40,000 hits this summer and it will bring a ton of changes - more than any edition change that most players remember. Games Workshop has moved to a more normal relationship with customers, offering new information, asking for questions, etc. They have released a ton of teasers for 8th Edition - and of course I have some opinions.

Genestealer Cults in Shadow War - Armageddon

We're going to be doing our second day of games using the new Shadow War supplement this weekend. My cult has gone through three games and advanced a little, while one of my hapless fighters was killed.

Shadow War Armageddon: First Thoughts

Shadow War: Armageddon came out last weekend with a pretty big hype train behind it. Copies of the boxed game were sold out pretty much everywhere, and scalpers were selling them online for huge sums of money.

Included in the boxed set are the rules, terrain, dice, templates, tokens, and two kill teams: space orks and space marine scouts.

AdeptiCon Review: The Battle of the Juniata - French and Indian War Sharp Practice

AdeptiCon has come and gone and with it the 'I did all that hobby and now its over' blues. We did end up playing our Sharp Practice participation game, which was the height of my experience. We put a ton of work into it and it came out great.

The Road to AdeptiCon - French and Indian War Troops Done - Provincials and Native Americans + Terrain!

Here they come Jacques, all the gamers to AdeptiCon
I'm finally finished with my project for the French and Indian War game at AdeptiCon. We're playing Sharp Practice, a scenario called Skirmish on the Juniata. We've had some players drop out due to not finishing their models, but we'll still have enough to do a fun game. I committed myself to finishing 24 provincial soldiers and 12 native Americans, plus some terrain for the board.
