New out this month is the new version of Protectorate of Menoth Command soft back book this book is a veritable tomb of information for the budding Menoth player for Warmachine.
So, sitting in a box for the last month or so I’ve had the spoils of the Mantic Games, Warpath Kickstarter and so on Saturday I decided to pull on of the Enforcer Interceptor’s out to see how well it went together.
Darren talks King’s of War and movement.
When I was waiting for my order for Dropfleet commander one of the fun things was to look at what else I was going to need. I knew pretty early on I was going to need a new gaming mat. I have a few star maps but as Dropfleet is all about grabbing land masses I needed something new. I had a look around the Facebook group and to be honest the ideas were all the same, either big land masses or mats that looked like Mars. The selection didn’t really grab me at all.
If you haven’t heard, dead zone has been run through the Kickstarter mill again, but came out the other side a better game. I’m going to take a look at some of the changes and what you get in the box now.
Like a lot of games around at the moment Arena Rex is another from Kickstarter game. Whilst I never noticed when it was up (slight shame to be honest), it is a game I have picked up and after a slightly confusing start have found I really enjoy it. For many it will be seen as a Beer and Pretzels style game, one to sneak in before or after the main game of the night. But to me you should be treating it as the main event.
One of things though that can put people off on a game beyond not liking it is the miniature scale and of late I really have noticed a scale creep. Arena Rex is 35mm so that’s a bit odd and it does mean that fitting it with other miniatures or ranges is a little difficult. But it shouldn’t put people off playing the game.
OK, I know what you’re all thinking “but that games been around for ever? Why are they reviewing it now?”. Well it may astonish you to read that not everyone owns a copy of this game and that even more shockingly I didn’t until recently.

So Dungeon Saga by Mantic Games has been out a while and even though I have the game and all the add ons etc, I have yet to write about it.
Over a thousand years ago, Valandor, the greatest known hero fell in battle, fighting to protect the lives of those around him. From shore to shore, all owe thanks to his wondrous legacy. Now, sacred sites across the land have been defiled and plundered by the disgraced wizard Mortibris, who along with his vile undead minions will stop at nothing to obtain the secrets of Valandor’s power. Only the bravest heroes dare oppose him. Thrown together from the far corners of the realm, they step boldly into the depths, ready to face whatever foul evil awaits them…
Hero, your quest begins here!
When Darren asked me if I wanted to do a review of Advanced Songs of Blades and Heroes it was a bit of a giver that I was going to say Yes. I have already done a review of Songs and even a small piece on how I developed my Campaign setting so it’s not like I don’t know how the game system works.
