Lasting Tales (First Impressions)

Hey Folks, we’re back with a quick one today. We just heard about the new Miniature game Lasting Tales from the fine folks over at Blacklist Games. It’s a new game from Mark Latham, who’s designed some absolute gems (including the Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms). Lasting Tales is a Cooperative tabletop miniatures game that looks like a functional hybrid of the traditional fantasy RPG and the tabletop skirmish game. Let’s take a bit of a closer look at it and see what we can see.

2021-2022 Armies on Display Project

 Hey Friends, Fans, Longtime readers, we're doing something a little different this week, we're going to preview the Armies on Display project we as a fan community are putting together.  It's a full scale army project with a display board. It's supposed to be fully painted, and it will be showcased in pictures, videos, articles, the whole kit and the entire kaboodle.  I know it sounds like a lot of work, and it absolutely is, but the good news is we're not expecting you to have completed submissions until November of 2022.  That's right, you've got 20 some odd months to prepare the project and get it ready for prime time.  

We're going to have worksheets, articles, and demos coming out regularly to help you get the process started.  This is open to everyone, and we welcome your participation. Guidelines and rules will go up next week, and we will be putting up some questionnaires to help you get started.  We'll see you all a little further down the road.  Until then, Have fun, be decent, and stay tuned for more updates.  Also share this post with your friends.  The More the Merrier.

Gamma Wovles

 Gamma Wolves is the newest tabletop miniatures game from Ash Barker at Guerilla Miniature Games. It’s a post apocalyptic skirmish game that showcases Mecha scavenging the ruins of a broken, irradiated world for usable tech and resources. I got this game from a friend for my birthday, so I wanted to make sure you understand I got it for free. It’s published by Osprey Games as part of their expanding universe of skirmish gaming. Let’s dive deeper and see what we can see.

 The new combat patrol format of entry level products for Warhammer 40,000 has given us some interesting choices so far in how to construct an army for new players.

What's a Meta?

 Hey Game Fans, we’re back with another article on getting into the miniature Wargaming hobby. Today’s article is going to touch on a topic that is divisive in the community, but it’s focused on the folks who play more heavily than the other pillars of the hobby, (Reminder, the three main pillars of the hobby are the modelers, the painters, and the gamers). Today we’re going to talk about the “Meta” and what it means to the average hobbyist and what it doesn’t mean. Buckle up, it may be bumpy.

Combat Patrol: Death Guard

 The new combat patrol format of entry level products for Warhammer 40,000 has given us some interesting choices so far in how to construct an army for new players, but the new box for the Death Guard is a different sort of animal.  For the first time we are getting an entry level product built around a Special Character.  This is the first time I can recall seeing one of these style products built around a special character that didn’t come in a two faction ‘starter’ set. Let’s take a look at what’s in the box and where you can go from here.
