Hey Game Fans, we’re back with something we want to do a lot more of in the coming months. The Wook and i got together and played our first game of Age of Sigmar, 2nd Edition. The Warhammer Store in Lawrence, Kansas was kind enough to host our game and give us permission to film the game, so keep your eyes peeled for the video to get posted soon. Now i’ll be the first to admit that we don’t know what we’re doing and we’re learning the game as we go. We only managed to get halfway through the third turn, due to some time constraints and the needs of a tiny dog, but from our engagement, i have some thoughts. I’ll get to those after i put down the lists and go through what happened during the game.

So we’re back today with the first look at one of the games we’re going to be taking a closer look at for our trip to Gencon and probably the winter months into 2019. Today we’re taking a look at Gaslands, written by Mike Hutchinson and published by Osprey Games. Set in a post apocalyptic world dominated by vehicular combat, Gaslands takes all of the Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars of your youth and gives you an opportunity to turn them into hard hitting Wasteland death machines. Let’s dig in a little deeper

So we’re back today with the first look at one of the games we’re going to be taking a closer look at for our trip to Gencon and probably the winter months into 2019. Today we’re taking a look at the official release of Last Days, a zombie survival narrative skirmish game from Osprey Publishing. Written by Ash Barker, of Guerrilla Miniature Games, it’s a set of rules describing the struggle that survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse endure in the aftermath of the end of civilization. Let’s take a closer look.

So we’re back today with the first look at one of the games we’re going to be taking a closer look at for our trip to Gencon and probably the winter months into 2019. We’re going to take a dive into the Dystopian Age and an up close look at Wild West Exodus from Warcradle Studios. Let’s take a first look at the Game, and what attracted us to it. Buckle in, we’re going for a ramble.

So we’re about a week out on the official release of the Age of Sigmar 2nd edition and i have to admit that Games Workshop is doing an impressive job of rolling out this edition of the game. They have made a lot of very smart choices for this release and it feels like they have learned lessons from a few of their stumbles in the past and are applying those lessons as they roll forward. The new core set is up for pre-order and it has a host of bells, whistles, gadgets and other doodads that feel like a lot of fun. I’m not going to go over everything, but i am going to talk a little bit about the big points (Soul Wars, Core Rulebook, Malign Sorcery, General’s Handbook 2018) and their implications going forward.

Hey Game Fans, Just a quick hobby update (Day Job has been eating time, so not a lot of articles so far these last couple of weeks). The progress is being made on the Seraphon and the T’au. I have the base coats laid in on the Saurus Guard, half of the Saurus Warriors and two of the four Dinosaurs for the army i have. I like the way it looks, but i need to do a couple of fixits before i go to the wash stage. After that it’s highlights and maybe basing.

Hey Game Fans, today we’re going to talk a little bit about one of my favorite subjects in the Universe, the Lore of Warhammer 40,000. There’s a lot of it, from the earliest days of Rogue Trader, to the Horus Heresy, and even into the new frontiers created by the advancement of the story that ties into the 8th edition of the game. Two things to keep in mind for Warhammer 40,000 is that there really aren’t any good guys and the battle being fought is a war of attrition.
