In the shadow of Balaur Mormant

The start of a NIGHTWATCH adventure I have the extreme good fortune to game on a regular basis. The Cape Cod Wargame Commission meets (more or less) weekly to indulge in food, drink, table top wargames, RPGs, and the occasional board game. (with miniatures, of course) If I remember correctly, we’re in our 7th year. […]

Mork Borg Minis

If someone dropped two tabs of ‘Snoopy with Sunglasses’ to binge-watch Lord of the Rings (extended version) while listening to Swedish Death Metal, you’d get Mork Borg, the role playing game. That’s what it feels like to me, anyway. Like kids in a candy shop, our game group bounces around and wants to try new […]

Steelheart Pt. IV

The ‘once-a-month’ crew showed up last Saturday for the next episode of the Steelheart Saga. (yes, that’s what I’m calling it. Because it sounds cool) Recap: 1. Our heroes scoured the Wilds for clues to the location of the Tomb of Alrik Steelheart, ancient king and hero of the Dwarf clans. 2. The party entered […]

Rowville Rescue

An INSURGENT EARTH AAR The Rowville Resistance Cell was at it again last night, responding to a frantic call on a CB radio. Apparently, a survivor was hiding in Dryden’s Ditch, an old farm on the outskirts of town. According to the survivor, old Dryden himself had made a last stand there, taking down half-a-dozen […]

Insurgent Earth

I’m pleased to announce that Insurgent Earth is finally done. Insurgent Earth is a tabletop war game in which players take the role of survivors in the chaotic days following a massive invasion of Earth by an advanced alien civilization. In Insurgent Earth, the players are not Generals or Admirals, Presidents or Prime Ministers, they’re […]

Recent Brushwork – pt. 2

Our weekly group is getting ready to try the sci-fi, transhuman RPG Eclipse Phase 2.0 , so I slapped color on a bunch of Privateer Press’ Warcaster Neo-Mechanika miniatures to use as character and major NPC figs. I don’t play W N-M, or any PP games for that matter, and there doesn’t seem to be […]

Recent Brushwork

Lots of things going on in life, in the world. “Juggling” may be a life skill but miniature painting centers me. For that alone, I don’t do it often enough. I have managed to get color on a few figs though. Mostly assembly line/speed paint jobs, but it gets minis on the table, so I’m […]

Steelheart Saga – Part 3

A TANGLED WEB The once-a-month group met last Saturday for part three of their Nightwatch adventure. Play testing some simple RPG rules, I incorporated a little ‘theater of the mind’ narrative scenario in the first half of the session before the inevitable combat. Previously, on “The Steelheart Saga“ Having scoured the wilderness for clues to […]

Rowville Fuel Storage and Transport

An INSURGENT EARTH AAR After their semi-successful shopping trip downtown, the Rowville Resistance Cell sneaked into the fuel depot a few days later. Located in an industrial park on the outskirts of town, the facility sees regular invader traffic and worse, is home to a strange alien transmitter of some kind that is guarded round-the-clock […]

The Slog

Wife and I finally got Covid. (Happy Easter, eh?) I’m on the mend but it really took the wind out of my sails. After-effects are hanging on. On a positive note, it looks like there’s another Osprey rule book in my future. So that’s cool. More info on that story as it unfolds.
