A long time ago I had a dream, not the one that got me through my teenage years that involved the Olsen Twins; (Bit early on in the post to start that kind of caper, eh? – Ed.) and what with my impending “freedom,” I thought it might be high time to get back on with life. Well…one little aspect of it.
…And that particular dream was to have a full boardsworth (which is my new unit of measurement) of whatever I needed. Jungle, city, desert, icy tundra, industrial complexes/spaceship interior; and for that I needed a heap of scatter terrain. I’m sure you’ve seen the term used before, used to describe typically smaller bits that can be used almost anywhere. Enter Mantic’s Terrain Crate: Industrial Accessories.
Yep, it’s another actual review. Lets jump in. Continue reading “Mantic Games Industrial Accessories: A Review.”→
Upon digging around in my external hard drive, I found this from AGES ago. Back in 5th or even 4th edition…Before Planetstrike, before Spearhead. Before the planetary empires box came out and made mapmaking easy, I tried to make a campaign creator thing. I’ve copied it here verbatim, so will need a tad of updating to run it now. If anyone gets anything useful out of this, I’ll be happy. So, without further ado:
If you’ve not had chance to read the All Guardsmen Party yet, you need to stop your life for an evening and read it. Really. It’s an account of perhaps the best Dark Heresy campaign… in the world.
The author, known only as Shoggy, has had a shite year all told and is finally getting around to writing up the latest adventure.He will be posting on /tg/ on Friday the 28th July, at 6pm Mountain Time (1am Saturday GMT).
I’ve been waiting for this as much as waiting for The Winds of Winter.
Recently I was invited to play a campaign in a day of Shadow War: Armageddon. Having only had a few games of it beforehand, I was a bit trepidatious; but I donned my finest Inquisitorial Hat™ and jumped in all the same.
You may remember, dear reader, these from a long time ago.
I wish to start dear reader, by reminding you that I am an idiot. I know this, you know this; but now we both know that we both know this. If what I’m about to talk about sounds like you think its beyond me, it is. But that kind of reasoning hasn’t stopped me before, so why should I let it get in the way now?
Violente et ignorantiae, is the family motto, after all.
I mentioned before that I’m wanting, and indeed trying (trying being the operative word) to make a cosplay of a space marine scout.
You may remember me mentioning that recently a little change happened in a small wargame that you’ve probably never heard of. I had the opportunity on Monday to play it with Nathan, who’s been out of the game entirely since 5th; with my horror stories about 6th and 7th he’s kept out.
Then something beautiful happened, and I knew it was the edition that would get me (certainly) and the others in my lot (possibly) playing in the far future again: 8th.
Sometimes it really doesn’t rain, but pour.
Our “friendly” neighbourhood crazy militant vegans are claiming this was all part of their grand scheme…and vegans wonder why people think they’re crazy, because…?
