Well for this year anyway, 2016 is drawing to a close slowly but surely, other than death and taxes, the only thing guaranteed in life is that this time of the year will continue to creep up on us.
Christmas has come a little bit late but thanks to Warlord Games its here!
The Algoryn war machine builds up its power base with the brand new Algoryn AI Armoured troopers plastic box set:
As some of you are aware myself and Mark actually met playing Spoils and a firm friendship was struck on that first trip to Colchester to take part in a Spoils tournament, which was cemented again on the same journey to the Nationals which were held at the same venue, unfortunately whilst remaining friends and even now colleagues on this blog it seems that the game that crossed our paths is going to be no more as this statement was released yesterday on the spoils website!
The Frostgrave Folio is the complete collection of all previously released Frostgrave mini-ebook supplements in one printed volume.
So the a raft of new releases due for 12th January from Knight Models for both the Batman Miniature game and the new DC Universe range for Batman we have Aaron Cash and the Quick response team, the Dynamic Duo (80’s TV show?), Mr Freeze thug set and Reaper.
Can you escape from Colditz? do you have what it takes to get past the guards?
Osprey Games have released the 75th Anniversary Edition of Escape From Colditz! Designed by Pat Reid, a British officer who escaped from the Colditz prisoner-of-war camp during World War II, and Brian Degas, writer of the iconic TV series based on Pat’s escape, it is often named as one of the greatest board games in British history.
So my second project for Gates of Antares is underway, the Algoryn are the force I wanted to play from the start but I have only just got round to starting to get them sorted, they have been in the boot of my car for a month! To begin with I managed to trade and buy a fair amount, 4 packs of drones 3 AI Squads a box of AI Assault Squad a micro X launcher and a Skimmer squad so all in I should be able to do something reasonable straight off the bat.
A gentle tapping on my front door this morning announced the arrival of something I have been eagerly anticipating for several months now – the return in print of the World of Progress – the SLA Industries RPG collectors package!
At last, the details have been sorted, prizes found and we are going to run our first Deadzone tournament in my home town of Ipswich. The Rules pack is below but to highlight the details in brief it will be 150 points, three games, £6 for a ticket, spot prizes in each round and we will need help with scenery and boards as this is only a start up tournament.
For some strange reason I thought I had already covered some of the new releases coming early next year but apparently I haven’t! Which is odd!
