Renegade Miniatures World War 1 Early War Germans

This year is the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War 1 so I figured it was time to get into the trenches. I finished 5 early war Germans I bought from Renegade Miniatures.

Federation Commander Solo Wargaming AAR

In my last post about Federation Commander, I played a simple solo game against a human opponent. Federation Commander is designed to be played against a live player but there are a few scenarios designed to be played solo. Today I'll be showing an After Action Report I played solo against Robot Rules. To be fair playing with the Robot Rules isn't as good as a human opponent and is a bit limiting but it is a good way to be able to play solo or to practice with a new ship, weapon, or strategy before you face an opponent.

Let's Play After The Horsemen Campaign Episode 1 With Card Decks

I've been thinking about starting a new post-apocalyptic campaign using 2 Hour Wargames rule set After The Horsemen so here we are. If you've never played After The Horsemen you can read my review here. I decided I would play as a lone wolf and created a character named Larry Templeton. The encounter for this game would be wandering with a goal of finding an NPC to interact with or to find a settlement.

Federation Commander Reference Rulebook Review

Amarillo Design Bureau released a Reference Rulebook for Federation Commander which contains all the current rules from every module released for the game. If you play Federation Commander I would recommend that you buy it for a few different reasons. The rulebook can be purchased in either a printed version or as a pdf from Steve Jackson Games e23 website.

Federation Commander Review

Many years ago while I was still in high school I was at a friend's house playing some computer games, I believe Warcraft 2, and as my friends and I were leaving I passed his dad's den and he had a table set up with a big hex grid space map that had Captain Kirk's TOS Enterprise surrounded by two Klingon D-7s. I love Star Trek and didn't know anything about the game that was set up so I asked what it was and if we could play and was told it was called Star Fleet Battles but it was too complicated to teach. We were playing a bunch of different games back then so I let it go but my interest in the game never left.

New Stuff!!

After nearly a year we're back with some new stuff! First up is a quick picture of the first miniature I finished painting from my Empire Of The Dead Kickstarter lot. His name is Iron Head Ned and while my painting skills are around a D- he looks good enough on the table, plus it's better than anyone I play with can paint.
