Fresh ‘Preserved’ Meat!

The Supermutants ventured back into the wastes last night in another game of This is Not a Test.  This time I headed over to Jason’s place and played on his totally awesome Fallout terrain.  He decided to deploy his Brotherhood of Steel (Preserver) warband on a relic recovery operation.  My Supermutants, scavenging for loot themselves were soon distracted by the smell of fresh meat… Continue reading →

Post-apocalyptic Fun with TNT

As a long time fan of the Fallout series of CRPGs and a firm believer that you can never play too many skirmish rulesets – I have recently dived into the world of This is Not a Test (TNT).  TNT is a great little skirmish ruleset that harks back to the glory days of Necromunda in its feel – albeit with modern, more streamlined mechanics.  The theme is basically ‘Fallout’ – but it is super flexible and really any post-apocalyptic setting is feasible thanks to the extremely diverse warband rosters.  Last night I had my first ever game with Andy on his super cool table that he has been working on.

Imperial Service Fashion Parade

I’ve been doing quite a lot of painting lately – no actually I have that wasn’t a joke…  With Infinity getting a big shot in the arm recently with the release of Human Sphere N3 and of course the plethora of amazingly sexy models that Corvus Belli keep producing – I have been oddly motivated!  So thought I would share some of my recent work on my Yu Jing Imperial Service force.

Christchurch DBA Open (Classical)

Last weekend I attended the first round of the Christchurch DBA Open.  The competition is split into two, one day rounds – the first being armies of the Ancient/Classical period.  The concluding round will be later this year.  Anyhow after a long time away from any sort of wargaming (small children, work, & life in general) I was a bit rusty but looking forward to 5 games of the rapid fire DBA 3.0 ruleset.
