Star Wars Wargaming Buildings and Terrain

Confrontation Battle Report, Wolf vs. Griffin

 For our second Confrontation Age of Rag’Narok battle report we added more forested areas to our tabletop battlefield, adjusted the victory conditions and added a unit of missile troops and a unit of scout fliers to the conflict. Once again, the Temple forces are built around an eight-man unit …

Wargaming Terrain with Giant Skulls

It’s been said that creativity is a form of insanity and that certainly applies when one starts building wargame terrain. Suddenly it’s impossible to go into Goodwill, Dollar Tree or heaven forbid a model railroad shop, and not acquire some toy, widget or random bit of hardware on the off …

RIP Mordian Iron Guard

With Games Workshop being historically tight-lipped about its future plans, it’s hard to speculate exactly what the Warhammer 40,000 developers have in mind for the brave but expendable soldiers of the Imperial Guard, now formally known as the Astra Militarum.

As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, over the last year we accumulated a sizable stash of pre-painted plastic miniatures made for the medieval fantasy skirmish game Confrontation Age of Rag’Narok, published a decade ago by French gaming company Rackham.

In this video, we examine the much harder-to-find Ram of Acheron Legion …

Test of Honour Samurai Wargaming Terrain

In a rare but ultimately futile exercise of willpower, I actually put the Test of Honour Scenery Set from Sarissa Precision back on the shelf after I first picked it up in the Warlord Games booth at GhengisCon 41, which was held Feb. 15-18, 2018, in Aurora, Colo. Sarissa Precision …

This annual event featured a plethora of organized RPG events, including Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder and Savage Worlds, along with a variety of independent role-playing games. Attendees …

Early Unsanctioned Star Wars Miniatures

These two pewter Star Wars figures probably had the manufacturer’s name engraved on the bottom of their bases when I bought them roughly 40 years ago. However I remember my enthusiastic pre-teen self filing off those identifying marks, along with a fair amount of metal flash, in an effort to make …
