1 on 1 Saga Campaign started

Late Romans vs. Saxons

Fellow gamer Timo from our Nopat & Taktiikka Club had also acquired the newish Arthur & Aetius source book for Saga and a bunch of Saxon miniatures (OK, I sold some of them for him). When he suggested in August, that we would give the Limes Campaign System a go, I had no reason to say no!

Another go for Helms Deep

The Evil of the White Hand


As our first go for Helms Deep was such a blast, two other Lotr-enthusiasts Kalle and Jaakko wanted to get their piece of action. This time I commanded the evil forces of Isengard as Jaakko my second in command, while Mikko, whom had stormed the deepening wall last time, was now defending it. Not a complete report this time, but plenty of pics and some high lights. You can familiarize yourself with the scenario and special rules from the report of the previous game.

Shadow War Armageddon - First Go

Brassboyz get their Babtism of Fire

There was a great hype going on at our club during the spring when both Shadow War Armageddon and then 8th edition of Warhammer 40 000 were released. Aleksis took the mantle for setting up a campaign for Armageddon. Soon "dozens" of players flocked to his banner... so did I.

Building of kill teams started and Aleksis came up with simple enough guidelines for the campaign: let's play games and who ever first has 15 prometheum cans piled up AND wins the next game, wins the campaign.


So my chaos forces shined their brass covered power armors and tooled up for some 
not so serious skirmish gaming... 5 players gathered for the kick off and several games were played with lot of cinematic situations happening and us having a good time!

Bolt Action: Demo game for a New Player

Japanese tide in Singapore

Henri called out for a demo game in our BA FB group and I was certainly up to it. It gave me a good reason to rapid paint some more miniatures for my British / Commonwealth force, as I needed to bring two forces to the table.
