Where Stenguns Dare: Operation Harlot

Having finished all the painting of all of my WWII collection to date I was inspired to get them out on the table for some rip roaring action. It was time for Lord Lovat’s No.4 commando to go on operations… “Ah.. good evening Shimmy, take a seat, now we’ve  got a job for you oldContinue reading “Where Stenguns Dare: Operation Harlot”

Schwerpunkt!

For a number of years now I have had a WWII skirmish project simmering away on the back-burner. In a previous post I showed off my US airborne infantry but I have documented very little on my blog since then. My collection is somewhat unusual, including as it does, a captured Char B tank, aContinue reading “Schwerpunkt!”

Fun and Frolics in the Deadzone

Hello fellow carbon based lifeforms and welcome to another Deadzone post! I have been playing some more solo missions in the Deadzone this week and trying out a new randomized activation for the ‘opposition’, using counters drawn from a cup. It has worked rather well at creating suspense, not knowing which enemy model will activateContinue reading “Fun and Frolics in the Deadzone”

Deadzone: Survival of the fittest Part 2

I had some time during the week to setup and play the second scenario of my solo campaign, and if I thought the first battle was nail-biting then I was certainly in for a shock second time around! Mission #2 – Beacon of hope ‘You now know what you’re up against, and the scale ofContinue reading “Deadzone: Survival of the fittest Part 2”

‘Battlecry’ – Meeting Engagement

Regular readers will know about my fondness for the Commands & Colors series of games by Richard Borg. This fantastic range of games is often referred to as  ‘light’ wargame due to the simple, easy to learn rules and lack of tables or charts, but I think that does it a disservice. One of theContinue reading “‘Battlecry’ – Meeting Engagement”

Ardera IV – Campaign #3

The struggle for Ardera IV raged on through what was known as the cold year, which is caused by the rather strange, elliptical path by which the planet orbits the main sun-star Artemis. An entire single orbit of the Artemis sun-star takes 2 terran-standard years, one of which takes Ardera IV three million miles away,Continue reading “Ardera IV – Campaign #3”

Battle over the Malcador river

Following on from my last post, here is a quick update on my memoir 40k narrative campaign. As an ork force tied up the space marines reserves at the Ormffidian river forks, they struck out to secure the bridges over the Malcador river. In this scenario, I decided to play using the more traditional victoryContinue reading “Battle over the Malcador river”

Packing away Christmas & Going on Campaign

Over the Christmas holiday I have been playing plenty of games of Memoir 40k, attempting to tighten-up the rules and stat-lines. I now have a very workable set of 60 command cards which is composed mainly of Memoir ’44 cards, along with leader cards from C&C Ancients and “hit & run” cards from Battlecry. ThisContinue reading “Packing away Christmas & Going on Campaign”

Scenes from the Corner of My Room

I don’t have a dedicated ‘games room’ and so instead must adapt with the space I do have to use here at Chez Tinpot. I can set up a 4′ x 4′  table in my front room but it has to be taken apart and stored after use. This will most likely be the mainstay for most gamers and is generally consideredContinue reading “Scenes from the Corner of My Room”
