The next wargaming project on the horizon for the group is 6mm Napoleonic using the ‘Grande Armee’ Rules set by Sam Mustafa. There are four manufacturers of figures in the UK, Adler, Baccus, H&R and Irregular, and from what we have seen at shows, there is substantial differences in style […]
These are 2 separate kits released by Wargames factory, Zombies [all male] and Zombie Vixens [all female]. I picked up a box of each cheap in the clearance bucket, still buzzing from the season finale of ‘The Walking dead’ Box contains 5x identical Sprues. Normally this would stifle creativity when […]
James hosts July's games, drinking, and Indian cuisine appreciation weekend. Considering the game boards and scenery were knocked up the night before, the whole setup looked ace. We got to try out SAGA for the first time and got a good 5 or 6 games played.
Of all the games ever released by Games Workshop, in my opinion one has always stood head and shoulders above the rest. The rules are ambiguous and poorly tested but the concept is perfection given injection-moulded, punched-card form. Instead of taking on your mates, you team up to venture into […]

Anglo-Danish deployment hugs the cover, hoping […]

June 19th 1944, Pacific theatre. The American invasion of Saipan triggers Admiral Toyoda’s counter-attack codenamed “A-Go”, which in turn resulted was the largest* naval battle of all time. In this series of articles I will show you how I recreated both fleets (plus aircraft and supporting vessels) in order to […]
These things always have a way of starting fairly innocuously. Tom and myself were sitting around, enjoying a frosty beer after a particularly hard fought game of “Battles for Empire” (Anglo-Zulu War). To hand was a box of old magazines which I was too sentimental to recycle, mostly ‘White Dwarf’ […]
