Miniature Wargaming

Our First Gaslands Build

The brilliance of Gaslands, the post-apocalyptic vehicular combat rules published by Osprey Games, is that the game can be played with regular Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars, making it a very inexpensive pastime compared to most miniatures-based tabletop wargames. This is especially true when Gaslands fanatics pilfer cars from their …

Vintage Warhammer 40,000 Miniatures

The current reboot of Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team and the imminent release of Kill Team: Rogue Trader prompted us to unlock the stasis chamber recently and break out a handful of vintage 40K squads that we’ve had languishing in storage. Some of these miniatures go back three decades (yikes!) and …

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. What’s shockingly apparent however is that most of the venerable …

Confrontation Age of Rag’Narok, Temple vs. Wolfen

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. To get a better handle on the Confrontation AoG rules, the …
