Back Together

It’s been three months but the Cape Cod Wargame Commission was back together last night rolling dice, munching snacks, pushing miniatures, and having a blast. One member shy, six of us sat down to test drive Pinnacle Entertainment’s latest iteration of their Savage Worlds RPG, the Adventure Edition. As big fans of cyberpunk, we journeyed […]

Nespokiyna Tysha

Restless Silence A Zona Alfa Battle Report Occasional Tom and I managed to carve out some game time. We were determined to put the new Solo/Cooperative “Point of Interest” rules through their paces. The idea here is to replace the usual set number of Hot Spots/Mission Objective with more numerous ‘points of interest’, all of […]

Latest brushwork

Spurred by lock down guilt and a Paint and Pledge challenge from Soren at Blood Beard’s Garage, I’ve been spending some of my quarantine time down in the game room, actually finishing projects. Bouncing between Sci Fi and Fantasy figs, my painting table is starting to clear up. I can actually see the surface. (it’s […]

Skirmish at the Luhansk Bunker

A ZONA ALFA BAT REP Luhansk Bunker. Exclusion Zone Alfa. North Sector: Threat Level 1. Remote, fortified, at the edge of the Luhansk Forest near a swamp, there was little attractive about it. Bugs, mud, vermin… not even decent salvage. Rumor was it had been cleaned out months ago. So why go? Well, the Ministry […]

For all its danger, the Zone is a busy place: Scientists, Corporations, Traders, PMCs, Criminals, Cultists, Loners… So many […]

New Recruits and Comparison Shots

With ZONA ALFA slated for release next month, I’ve been painting and modifying miniatures to equip my Zone crews. I need plenty of warm bodies (and ammo ) if I’m going to clear those Hot Spots and turn a profit. Here are several recent recruits: Nothing fancy or complicated, they’re a mix of Assault Group, […]

ZONA ALFA crews

A History It’s no secret I’ve been fascinated with the STALKER game setting since ‘Shadow of Chernobyl’ released back in 2007. 30 sq km around the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor site reproduced for a single-player, first person shooter/survival/horror sandbox game, S:SoC was quirky and buggy as hell but it was also moody, atmospheric, smoldering, dangerous, and […]

Not Miniature Monday

Spent the last three days slammed with work and a fever, so the miniatures-related post is delayed for a few days while I get back on my feet. Until then, here’s a couple shots of some recent brushwork, plus a couple maps and some banners I ran across while scouring the interwebs. (all excellent and […]

Cinder King: Skraeling’s Fork

The ride back from the mines was subdued. Our heroes had succeeded at securing a supply of Black Powder but at a hefty price. The bodies of your fallen soldiers were carefully loaded into one of the carts for proper burial back at the camp, mostly out of respect and tradition, partly because you did […]
