First impressions: Cuba Libre

I’ve not been particularly busy on the miniatures side of things lately – since my spare time is still very limited nowadays, I’ve just not been able to get any serious painting done. And it’s weird, but when I’m not painting I find it hard to muster any great enthusiasm for putting minis on the… Continue reading First impressions: Cuba Libre

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

First impressions: Altar of Freedom

Updates around here are far and few between these days, as I’m still a bit occupied on the domestic/wage earning front and don’t really have time for important stuff like playing with toy soldiers. But this doesn’t mean that my thoughts ever stray very far from future glory on minuscule battlefields. Quite the contrary in fact – the… Continue reading First impressions: Altar of Freedom

Me and Ulf met up at club the other day for a game of To the Strongest!

Just played… To the Strongest!

Jonas and I recently met up for a test game of To the Strongest! I had been aching to get this system on the table for some time; it looks to be an innovative take on ancients battles, but after my first read of the rules some question marks did arise. Thus I had a rather open-minded approach to this very… Continue reading Just played… To the Strongest!

First Impressions: To the Strongest!

To the Strongest! is a system that has been on my radar for some time. It is one of several relatively new sets of ancients/medieval rules that are aiming for a fast-play way of doing things, with innovative activation mechanics and a focus on fluid and dynamic gameplay. In several posts I have been taking a look at another… Continue reading First Impressions: To the Strongest!

Just played… Sword & Spear

  Just before Christmas, Martin came over to my house for a game of Sword & Spear. I recently bought these rules and really liked them (and also posted a first impressions piece here on the blog), so I was aching to try them out. I was also desperate to get my 6mm Greeks on… Continue reading Just played… Sword & Spear
