  • Army building sofrware

    Posted on January 30th, 2005 Highland_Piper No comments

    If there is o­ne thing that I hate about miniature wargaming is all the time I spend creating army lists. It takes far to long in my opinion.

    So I went about looking to see what was around for software

  • Book Review – 30 Years of Adventure: A Celebration of Dungeons & Dragons

    Posted on November 26th, 2004 Rob No comments

    by Aeon at http://www.gamegrene.com/

    When I was in fourth grade, my teacher o­nce made the class grade each others papers. As she read off answers, I stared in horror at the paper I had been given from the girl next to me. Every answer was wrong. Every o­ne. By the time I had ticked off the 30th incorrect answer, I was practically in tears. I felt responsible, somehow, for the problems o­n the page. It would not be her fault that she failed, but rather my own fault for calling attention to her flaws. I felt ashamed. I felt awful.

    I bought this, and it rocks!!

    Fact: the bases on the figs are the exact same size as the D&D miniatures bases. Hasbro owns both companies. Do I smell crossover??

    The game has an awesome modular gameboard, which you can set up to match a specific scenario, or make your own. Multiple sets can be combined, and expansions are planned, possibly with characters being sold randomly in sealed packages (i don't know that for a fact, but it makes sense…)

  • Multipart Plastics: Zvezda VS Games Workshop

    Posted on September 2nd, 2004 Rob No comments

    I am always looking for something different to put on the wargame table, something that will fit in with the scale I already use (28mm give or take) but will illicit "oohs" and "ahhs" from the jaded gameboys I so often play against. Of course, anything I can buy that also "sticks it to the man (Games Workshop)" is a plus. Here is one possible outlet: "Ring of Rule" figures by Zvezda.

  • Toronto GW Games Day 2004 Review.

    Posted on August 16th, 2004 Rob No comments

    Every year, my oldest daughter and I have a day out and go to the GW Games day. This annual event is her favourite day of the year. Not so much for the show but for the time we spend together. Its always been fun with lots to do and get.

    This year however, it was inadequate. GW decided to change the venue from the usual Toronto International Center to the Centrally located Toronto Convention Center. The downtown location had the benefit of external food vendors. You could pop outside for hot dog and fries from the street vendors instead of the awful, over-priced (yet traditional) food from the inside seller.

  • Paintier 80 Review

    Posted on July 7th, 2004 Rob No comments

    Let me preface this review by saying that I sell these, so I'm a little biased. I really believe though, that I should use what I sell so that I can judge the worth and quality of the items from a consumers point of view.

    The Paintier comes in in a heavy corrugated box that would provide good basing material for terrain builders. Shipping weight is listed at 5lbs (which I didn't check manually)

    The box is well packed without any wasted space or packing material.
