Back Catalog Minis

I’m going to spend a few weeks posting my back catalog of miniatures. This is stuff that goes all the way back to the very first British motor company box that I bought at Gencon very shortly after v2 of the rules was released. Not all of it is painted by me. I’ve commissioned a few things and…

 

Heavy Gear Blitz

I picked up a new game at GenCon- Heavy Gear Blitz. Its been around a long time in one form or another. There is a RPG of it, and there has been a tactical game for it for ages. I last looked into it back in its last revision and the newest rules are much…

 

GenCon History and Force

I can’t believe that I forgot to post this for so long. It wasn’t an award winning history, but I’m pretty proud of it anyways. The general area of the history is researched. Right Guards unit in the right area at the right time. Specifics… well its a Soviet force. Not alot of detailed info…

 

Other Cool Stuff at GenCon

So in the little time I had outside the flames of war tournaments I did get to check out a few other things. First up is an interesting game called Malifaux. It’s a skirmish level minis game that is very character driven. There are almost no ‘base’ troops, almost everything is an individual with it’s…

 

Ironman After Action Report @ GenCon

So Ironman was an interesting format. I didn’t do so well, but that was largely virtue of the first game. It was a bit of a snowball effect as I expected. Click on the images for full size animated GIF’s of the action. Game one I faced German pioneers in hold the line. This really…

 

Armies of GenCon

I ran around during the painting competition and took pictures of as many armies as I could. Unfortunately I didn’t get anywhere near all of them. These are all from the Grand Tournament. The Ironman armies were never on display as there was no painting competition. The last 5 pictures are the prize armies from…

 

Ironman @ GenCon Thoughts

Just general impressions here, detailed after action report later with animated Gifs of my battles. Ironman was an interesting format that I enjoyed, but I think needs a few tweaks to work well. The general idea is that you need to win with economy of force. That winning a Pyrrhic victory isn’t a victory in…

 

GenCon Tables

There were alot of really really nice tables at GenCon this year. Most if not all were player provided. These shots are all from the start of the Ironman tournament. I may have missed a couple of tables if any were added for the grand tournament the next day. Many of these were re-arranged on…

 

Surprise! Rules Changes.

For a competitive event to run fairly and smoothly rules must be applied consistently and in accordance with the standards published ahead of time for the event. Competitors should be made aware of any deviations from the standard rules system by the organizing body so that they may adjust their forces and tactics to suit…

 

Off to GenCon!

I’m off to GenCon Indy tomorrow! I know I’ve been tardy with making new posts, but most of the stuff I’ve been working on recently I’ve wanted to keep secret for the two big Flames of War tournaments. I’ll be playing in both the Ironman tourmanment and the Grand tourney this year. Last I heard…
