Confrontation Batrep III, Undead vs. Alchemists

Our third test-drive of Rackham’s Confrontation Age of Rag’narok fantasy miniatures wargame is a capture the relics scenario, pitting the Alchemists of Dirz against the undead forces of the Ram.

Our $20 Star Wars AT-SW Walker Project

Using inter-dimensional technology, Imperial engineers acquired a Dust Tactics heavy destroyer from an alternate universe, which they reverse engineered to create the Galactic Empire’s AT-SW (all-terrain support walker).

Cheap Wargaming Miniatures: Confrontation Age of Rag’Narok

As a wargamer who paints miniatures rather slowly and who at the same time enjoys a variety of sometimes obscure wargaming systems, across multiple genres, I like having a collection of serviceable pre-painted miniatures on hand.

Miniature Wargaming at The Wizard’s Chest, Denver

We recently did a little discretionary shopping and a lot of wide-eyed, undignified sightseeing at the amazing Wizard’s Chest emporium at 451 Broadway in Denver, Colorado. Billed as Denver’s “most magical toy store and costume shop,” The Wizard’s Chest offers 16,000 square feet of nerdy goodness packed into a phenomenal …
