Jet Bike racing at BOYL – post mortem

Picture from Ramshackle Games

At this year’s BOYL I ran another jet bike race on the Helsreach table. We had at least 15 players, so the rules had to be very fast moving. At the beginning of each turn, all the players decide how fast they are going, typically 36″-72″ – these are fast […]

Inquisitor Cynole Battle Report (Part 1) – BOYL 2016

This is going to be a big report, so I’ve decided to split it up to make it more manageable (and get something posted).

First, I’d like to thank all the players that made this game a success. Right up until it started, I didn’t really know how it was going to go; the complicated […]

Briefings for BOYL 2016 Inquisitor Cynole game

That isn’t a typo in the title – with BOYL 2017 almost upon us, I’d thought I’d better get on and publish the long overdue details of last year’s game. For those who weren’t there or haven’t been following the blog, it was a 6 player, heavily GMed game in which 6 human factions explored […]

Antares game at Warlord

To celebrate the site working again, here’s a quick post. Rowan and I went to Warlord HQ last night and had another game of Antares. 1000 points this time – Concord vs Rebel Ghar.

I fielded Concord with:

1 Command Squad 4 Standard Squads 2 Squads of 2 Light Support Drones with Batter Drones […]

Antares battle at Warlord HQ

Rowan and I went to Warlord Games HQ in Nottingham for their fortnightly Antares games night last night. They are open till 8.30pm and there are four tables available, such as this rather nicely sculpted desert. We played two games, which were against each other as we were first to set up, but all four […]

Back to the hive

After many months of being covered in miscellaneous junk and boxes of models, after weeks of picking away at the debris, I finally gritted my teeth and cleared the table in the shed. 4′ x 8′ of glorious emptiness. It was time for a game.

Finally cleared

Rowan had found rules for a Genestealer […]

X-wing battle over space station

Rowan has been collecting X-wing for about a year, so this has been one of the games I have been playing most of recently. Here’s a shot from our latest game in which I managed to close a Rebel victory in spite of a rather shaky end game for them.

X-wing battle over space […]

Inquisitor Cynole playtest photos

A couple of weeks behind schedule, I’ve finally set up for the scenario playtest for the Inquisitor Cynole game. I was starting to worry a bit, but I’ve really pushed on in the last few weeks. Last weekend I printed out a draft set of the temple floorplans, finished the first draft of the […]

Inquisitor Cynole scenario – background

The ‘thopter was a local model, ancient and noisy, the dull beat of its engines drowning any attempt at conversation. Dr Moenkhaus gestured to the ground.

‘That’, he said ‘is the main logging zone. You can see the loggernauts if you look closely’. Inquisitor Cynole peered from the cabin window. Far below he could […]
