Ye medieval times was the best time to hop on a horse, round up some friends, and beat the shit out of another guy who did the same. That’s what you do in The Barons’ War, the game we just reviewed for the podcast.
What are you, a statue? If you’ve got a collection of modern military miniatures, play Zona Alfa. If not, take a hike.
The podcast finally gets to play a game by the absolute indie wargame legend Ivan “Nordic Weasel” Sorensen (though it’s not the first time for this blog). It’s Five Guys at Kursk and they’re feeling fine (as long as nobody rolls a 1 or a 6).
By the power of the lavishly-produced Tabletop Simulator module, here’s our Turnip28 testing footage (with tuber-lar comments).
The podcast crew takes on Black Powder Red Earth 28MM, probably the most lavishly designed and illustrated modern military skirmish wargame. There are no survivors, only loitering munition wreckage.
This week, the podcast krew breaks kayfabe as they talk about about a violent fantasy sport game that isn’t Bloodbowl. That’s right, Fortified Niche is covering Rumbleslam. Turns out, literally everything wrong with the game is Vince McMahon’s fault!
Who could have known that indie miniature wargames is niche that’s like 50% published by Osprey ? With this happy coincidence explained, here’s the companion piece for our Dracula’s America: Shadows of the West podcast episode.
You just voted for Rise of the Reds in Moddb 2021 Mod of the Year Awards. Turning off your computer, you still feel the need for tactical action in a (not very) plausible near future setting. Time to break out those metal miniatures and play Delta One Zero, the Antipodean high-speed low-barbie tabletop wargame.
This is companion piece for the Fortified Niche podcast episode.
Fortified Niche is my (and one other good dude’s) podcast about miniature wargames you may have not heard of. Seeing how the general populace agrees that it’s good to play the game before you cast a pod about it, here are some Tabletop Simulator screenshots of us doing just that. This time, it’s the Napoleonic gothic horror of The Silver Bayonet.
Long before I had this blog, I was a student in Japan – a student who finally had enough money to invest into Warhammer 40,000. No longer would the three easy-to-build Ultramarines a friend had brought me as a gift from Sweden would be my only miniatures. I quickly bought a squad of Cadians, a Chimera, Tacticals (and a Black Templar kit)… and things got really wild by the time I built my first Warhammer force: an Inquisition Kill Team.
