Great to see some niche games like B5, Victory at Sea, and Realities' Edge. Good stuff!

I had a WIP game of the Korean Air War called White Star/Red Star.

Played my first games of Underworlds since before the Pandemic. Really got me fired up to get caught up on the warbands I missed in the last few months. Such a refreshing game to play, really picking up in my club.

I played three games of MESBG at the Atlantic City Open this past week, with my Black Gate Opens list.


Game 1 was Seize the Prize, I was up against a Denethor/Boromir MT force. I messed up on deployment and, despite winning priority for most of the game, couldn't get my Trolls into combat. Huron got the objective and ran with it. 0-7 loss.


Game 2 was Lords of Battle against a Morgul Knight/Black Numenorean list. The Fearless BG Troll was the MVP here while my other Troll Chief couldn't pass a Courage check to save its life. Unfortunately between the priority and the Morgul Lances my Orcs were wiped out, so I lost 2-8.


Game Three and I was back at the bottom table. Heirloom if Ages Past against a Mordor/Easterling army. We ended up in pretty opposite table corners, but my Mouth of Sauron and his archers got ambushed. The Mouth got away, the archers did not. I thought the game would be a loss when he found the artefact on turn 2, but this time I remembered to put the Trolls in front and they waded through his warbands. I managed to grab the artefact back (thanks to a couple 1s) right as he broke and then went down to 25%.

Pretty fun time all around, and I did as well as I expected for a game I haven't played since 2019. The other players were great, I got some cool event swag, and did some advertising for the club.

That's some fancy terrain. It bothers me intensely that the buildings/bridge don't adhere to the roads, but otherwise some cool looking stuff.

First time in nearly 2 years i got to play at. Round 1 and 2 my shield saves were attrocious putting me on desperate effort to keep titans in working shape. Never good situation to be at.


Got lucky break when his warhound's machine spirit decided rushing into melee just as was getting shot was good idea. While my chance to hit took a drop bypassing void shields was good. Second warhound tried to get self destruct hurting warlord and did get reactor meltdown but no real effect.

But his reaver got his obtective and managed barely get to safety. Literally 1 hit short of death and had game had turn more near quaranteed death. His warlord was also doomed to die with nobody to clear his rear from melee reaver that was bearing down. But goal archieved. Win for astorum.

Ah I recognize those terrain pieces, Dropzone Commander put out some nice cardstock folding buildings. They are great pieces to fold up and taking when traveling to visit friends.

Sounds like it was a very close game!

Yeah that's the terrain. Easy cheap and while bit too large scale resulting in bit Oversized windows not too bad. Gives plenty of cover which kept me alive for a while.

Close...bit of illusion as after my carrier died i had basically no way to win. Albeit partly own reason as i forgot i can retrieve cargo with other titan. But doing that requires letting titan die close to me and then rush past reaver and warlord...

To the death i would have won and indeed his titans were virtually quaranteed to die. Reaver needs to pass command test(fail and it dies), roll minimum 2 3+ with 1 reroll or die and then either that last dice needs to be 4+ and 2/3 next dice need to be 5+ or all 3 need to be 5+(1 reroll for last 3 repair dice). Fail to get 5/6 repair rolls(of which 2 has to be on first 3) and it dies. Then if that happens reaver still needs to stop my reaver on full health as his warlord can"w stop it itself. If he deals with 2 titans front i get to rear and he never gets me to firing arc. If he turns my warlord and reaver deal with him.. either way i get to hit him in melee and he gets one chance to stop reaver or i get to his rear and warlord just can'' turn fast enough.

But it's objective game

Uh... huh.

You know, I hadn't realized that that until you just pointed it out now. And it's going to bother me.

For scale terrain i suggest you hit up brigade models from the UK they have reasonable prices and terrain for 3mm, 6mm, 10mm and 15mm we use their 6mm stuff for epic 40K(about the same scale as titanicus) and classic battletech. and the 15mm stuff for heavy gear.

I really like gregsters lab gothic terrain because it looks so 40K but it is hard to find as of late.

Ran a few remote games of Space Hulk for friends with inspiring picture material provided from the table setup.

Marines were racing to set up a stasis bomb and get the hell out of dodge. First push failed miserably with the squad torn apart in the darkness in no time, always a classic when playing Space Hulk after a while

The second attempt took a more conservative approach and fared rather well on the way, managing to set up the bomb with only two losses. But then, with flamers running empty and their position compromised, all bar one fell immediately afterwards and the final survivor was caught howling in grief as the expanding stasis bubble froze him forever in the cold, lonely embrace of space.

A little action tonight..literally

Ran a demo game of epic 40K elysians VS DKOK





Then a large group of us did a special scenario old school (5th ed ) kill team game

Four player kill team bug hunt

Each player made a 250 kill team and fought other each from the 4 corners of the map, but it happened during a tyranid invasion so starting on turn two 1k worth of random tyranids started showing up trying to eat the other 4 players.

the players were
.space marines (salamanders-me)
.skitarii
.imperial guard
.tyranids (different hive fleet)

MVP went to the IG ogryn who chased a gene stealer brood off the table from CC.

Orcs vs Undead in a game of Kings of War in 15mm scale (using CM instead of Inches).

The game was 1500 points and it was the Relic capture senario.



I was using Orcs and I was defeated, 3 relics to 0 in the end :(.


I love 15mm, and I love KoW rule set.

how do you deal with the different unit sizes? That is what has been a barrier for us trying in a scale less than 28.

Sisters vs krieg. 80-67 win but with just 2 basic sister surviving with several tanks left.

Think opponent is getting strong despise for miracle dices.

Lumineth vs seraphon. Exposed mounted archers for sake of objectives and didn't get rid of star priests with just shooting. Resulted half the army. Didn't have anything to clear 80 skinks that teleport.

Highlight was twins that did decent work until 6" rerolled charge failed.

After my turn 3 he could just block me from objectives and regardless of priority rolls or whether he kills single model i can't catch up. His 9" charge out of teleport combined with failed charge(success could have cleared 2 units) was fatal.

Twins teleport out rule amusing though can backfire.

Should have gambled and trust on keeping priority though...needed it anyway so no point anymore not taking gamble.

Lumineth vs gloomspite w/kragnos under 3e rules. And knowing he would bring kragnos reverse list tailored and made sure i had no auto disable tools for kragnos. No syar for warlord trait, no flying foxes(2 of those could be used to deny charges at will) and only 9 arrows whole army. Lots of melee. Not toothless but opponent can try his new toy

Well my first turn was semi disaster with no defensive buffs on spells and shooting doing nothing. Also made silly mistake with battle tactics putting me 2vp down.

Still not dead but that magic phase left me open for double to cripple me but he didn't and instead every single spell was cast so now i felt comfortable with kragnos charge though forgot to redeploy cathallar to safety. But she died and fully buffed wardens(-2 to hit, 4+ ethereal, 5+ ward, immune to battleshock and power of hysh) halted charge.

Still double for round 3 and i could still lose. But no. And despite sentinels failing to do much wardens piked kragnos to death.

And here he resigned with just 3 units left, 1 needing double 1 to move, charge, fight...

He paints well, specifically asked for painted army which helps for looks and i took my all time fav painted army despite having serious worry about match up. And as he didn't get double turn it was pretty easy despite 3 big mistakes and this with super toned down list.

(Lumineth is particularly bad match up for gits and lumineth have ways to deal with kragnos).

But thanks to toning down list(it pays off to talk with opponemt what kind of power level to bring ) and double turn rule he at least had some chances to win.

Playing outside sounds fun. Though how's the wind? Counters/cards aren't flying away?

Some grand Titanicus slam tonight!

1750 points of Favilla's hyper-aggressive Ferrox pain-train took on a two-player Krytos / Fureans alliance, facing off on a desert world tainted by a foul, toxic atmosphere (which could worsen critical damage over time) and wracked by a painful, daemonic presence (which made machine spirits even more unruly than usual). Both sides were trying to break deeply into the other's lines.

A perfect display of Titanicus as a game: first turn was agressive maneuvering, followed by a wild firestrom, third turn nuclear annihilation and a fourth turn mop-up of those still standing. My Ashen Gods took the field by Full Striding through the line on the first turn while the opposition dillydallied in their corner, losing the momentum and then getting slaughtered with their backs to the wall. While the result was a blowout 35-7 points and 6-2 casualties for Favilla's favour, the game was hugely fun for all involved and a rematch shall surely follow in time. All the beautifully painted and visually distinctive armies don't hurt, either

My favourite moment was at the end, as my teleporting Clawlord finally got a Charge on the opposing Deus Victrix and tore his reactor heart out in one neat display of four Critical Hits to the body. Fists for days!

Seems like a lot in this game hinges on a random dice roll each turn to see if your opponent gets to smack you in the face two times in a row.

It was actually pretty nice, wasn't too windy this time, and his deck cover makes a pretty good wind guard. When we played before, I had to leave my phone ontop of my decks lol.
