I have had these old GW zombies and skeletons laying around for years (a commission for painting an Ogre army for a club mate). Well, I have finally painted them in preparation for my Mantic Undead army I plan to paint next year (I am tempted to start an Abyssals... read more
Fist of Lead

Fist of Lead

I have back another Kickstarter (it’s addictive) called Fist of Lead Reloaded. It’s a 28mm wild west skirmish game. I don’t really know a lot about it, but since GW Historical and Legends of the Old West went belly up a few years back, I thought it... read more

KoW Orcs 2000pts

Desperados

Desperados

My brother got me Desperados of Dice Town from Matagot for my birthday and here is a quick review. To say my kids love this game might be an understatement. They are playing 2 or 3 games before school and the same after school. It is a basic 2 to 4 player game with no... read more

I played a game of Star Wars Imperial Assault by Fantasy Flight Games today, with my brother, my son (11) and daughter (9). It was my brother’s game. We played the introductory scenario, it was the second time I have played and the first time for my kids. I like... read more

Busy Times

I would like to say that I am sorry that I have not posted anything for the last few weeks. I have been very busy lately due to various reasons. One of these reasons is that I have been fortunate to write for a fantastic new game, which will be released in early 2016.... read more
