Trees and Terrain for Wargaming

This past month I walked around the Fall-In commercial sales area during a break between a few of my games and found some interesting things. I am always on the look-out for new terrain or at least nice terrain to better dress up my gaming tables for a variety of systems. I mostly play Flames of War, Warmachine and recently took a dive into Team Yankee. Adventure Terrain is a company that has an interesting take on trees and other gaming terrain.

Realistic terrain really does make all the difference.

Great War; Great Once Again!

For those who are interested in the Great War, the last few years has seen a boom in all sorts of media and games that highlight the bloody struggle that changed the world forever. This boom is not because the topic is gaining popularity, but rather it’s the fact that we are remembering the 100th anniversary of the conflict. Even after 2018, and the anniversary period is over I still feel that many of us who are amateur historians will enjoy greater company with a new wave of converts who got caught up in the boom.

Flames of War: Great War
While this is not new, I do have some new personal news to share. I finally got off my ass and painted the French and American forces I got many many months ago. The motivation was a hangover effect from painting my Team-Yankee Soviets and West Germans.  I got back into painting and I really wanted to knock these guys out. 

So sitting on my bench collecting dust was each of the box sets and some add-ons so I would have one of each blister and box.  My first project was the tanks, which was 4 Renault Ft-17s, 2 Schneider CA.1s, and 1 Char St Chamond tank. I will admit to being cocky and made the decision to paint all of the tanks in the French camo scheme.

Leopard Panzertruppen: Bella Fleck and the Flecktarn

When the Panzertruppen supplement came out for West Germany, I quickly downloaded a copy, it seemed like a great list to get my Leopard 1s on the table and the infantry mounted in M-113 APCs have 3 Milan teams per platoon vice the 2 of the infantry in Marders. So I wanted to get another blister of infantry for my German force.  I have some Command Decision M-113s and picked up 4 more from the Vietnam period during Battlefront’s Halloween sale.

With the Panzertruppen supplement you can not only field a Leo1 and M-113 company, you can also get a Fuchs formation to boot. The lists here are a must for anyone who wants to field a ton on Leopard 1 tanks. Since I have 9 of them I can field the HQ, 2 full platoons of 3 Leos each and maybe a platoon of 2 then and then grab an M-113 troop for about 35 points.

Star Wars Imperial Assault Cooperative Campaign Video Playthroughs

Sean and I recently caught the Imperial Assault bug. Set immediately after the destruction of the first death star, Imperial Assault takes players through an exciting story where the Rebels are uncovering plans for a weapons system.

Normally, the game is "one vs many" not unlike Descent, or any number of games where one person is the Game Master, Dungeon Master, etc. However, we found an interesting variant that allows the Empire to be run by an AI (not unlike the Heroes of the Aturi Cluster for X-Wing. Without further ado, here are the first five games in Sean and I's two-man Rebel Assault strike force campaign:

Arkham Horror The Card Game

Lydia and I recently picked up the Arkham Horror Card Game. Made by much of the same crew who put together my beloved Lord of the Rings card game, Arkham Horror sees players teaming up to face the Eldritch Gods that live just beyond our realm.

The game has been built from the ground up with a focus on campaign play, including a neat system for "leveling up" certain cards by spending experience between games. Here, we begin with two basic starter decks and play through the first scenario in the included campaign.
