Just played… Liber Militum Tercios

Me, Ulf and Andy met up at club the other day for a game of Liber Militum Tercios. This game, which I must admit has slipped under my radar completely up until Andy pitched it at club recently, looks to be a rather interesting take on the Thirty Years War. It is produced by a… Continue reading Just played… Liber Militum Tercios

Project Log: Frostgrave Necromancer Warband

As per usual these days, I’ve been fairly busy lately. But weirdly enough the odd project has still managed to sneak off the painting table – most recently a Frostgrave Warband. Now I’ve only played this game once, but I had so much fun that I just had to build me a dedicated bunch of… Continue reading Project Log: Frostgrave Necromancer Warband

Just played… Frostgrave

I recently managed to sneak away from home and have a game of Frostgrave with clubmate Jocke. I had really been looking forward to this; the game has been on my “must play” list ever since it was released just over a year ago, but other projects have kept piling up and I’ve constantly postponed getting a dedicated warband… Continue reading Just played… Frostgrave

After their recent glorious victory, the Poles have decided that… Continue reading Just played… The Pikeman’s Lament

Just played… The Pikeman’s Lament

Our Polish-Swedish War campaign for The Pikeman’s Lament continues unabated; we’re having so much fun with this WIP ruleset that we sometimes tend to forget that we’re officially still playtesting it. Since the game features some light campaign elements – commanders have names and personal abilities, rise in rank, and so on – and since… Continue reading Just played… The Pikeman’s Lament

Project log: 17th century Polish, part II

I thought I’d just post a quick update to show off a new addition to my Polish army: a unit of Pancerni from The Assault Group‘s wonderful Polish Renaissance range. These soldiers, mainly used to soften up enemy ranks before the Winged Hussars‘ deadly charges, were often termed “Cossacks”, even though in reality they were… Continue reading Project log: 17th century Polish, part II
