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.
This DLC train took some time to reach the station, but there you have it. Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War eventually/finally go the Adeptus Mechanicus DLC. So what are the friendly neighborhood tech cultists up to? Continue reading “Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Adeptus Mechanicus DLC | Review in 7 Screenshots”
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).
Recently, Kotaku took a look at Ready or Not, the Kiwi-developed SWAT-like. Luckily, they touched upon the politics angle, which I had entirely missed whilst watching Controlled Pairs play it.

By the power of the lavishly-produced Tabletop Simulator module, here’s our Turnip28 testing footage (with tuber-lar comments).
WARNO announcement was rolled out so stealthily, you basically had to have entered the trailer’s link accidentally to spot it. Why would Eugen do it to it’s own successor to the Wargame franchise? With the Early Access out not a month later (and asking €30 from mortals), we can wager a guess: they knew it’s not ready.
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.
