MECHANICS LAB: SNOWBALL SKIRMISHES

First let’s get the necessary admin out of the way: Hobby Spend: £152.88 I’ve been buying up a lot of plastic figures from Oathmark, Frostgrave and Fireforge Games for a fantasy skirmish project. Painted: £303.50 My aim for lent is £0 spent on hobby, but we’ll see how that goes. I haven’t fully taken stock […]

mechanics lab: polygonal dice

It’s been an odd week, one of those weeks where I experience a bit of creativity overload, many new ventures, many new projects, almost none of them the Global Warfare rules I’m supposed to be working on. One such venture this week was a simple skirmish system using polygonal dice to do all of the […]

How do you fight a global war?

That’s a genuine question by the way. As I embark on the Second Global War where House Baronor fight the Jendari Collective for planetary control, I’m not entirely sure how to fight that war. What at least has made sense to me so far is to play a risk like game, the pieces being representative […]

So what did I do in 2021?

One of the weird things about having a hobby blog is being able to look back over the year and see pretty much exactly what I’ve been up to in the year just gone. JANUARY I started the year with my 0 player duelling project. It was a fun distraction and got me revamping old […]

Deathshot returns

I wrote a little while back (2018) about a simple black powder skirmish set of rules I was hoping to use for fleshing out Jendar’s history. To save you finding them, the rules are here, with some adjustments from their original posting: Each skirmish force should have between 12 and 20 figures, all figures are […]

DEATHZAP 3.2.1

The following are the current rules I’m playtesting for Deathzap 3, any questions don’t hesitate to ask! SETUP AND SCENARIO The game is played on a 60”’x30” board and the figures I use are 1/72 or 20mm. The board should be fairly dense with terrain, with a mix of soft and hard cover. You could […]

A Packaging Fortress

The worlds of Deathzap are pockmarked by defensive structures and fortifications, not just due to the number of wars humans have had in the past but also there are remains of structures built by the Korban the reptilian race that previously lived on the planet Jendar. I found one of these bits of packaging lying […]

Oltra Burns Again

In the interest of starting up some Deathzap 3 again I’ve been amassing forces. Representing the SynJen were my previously seen Rin Empire platoon, but to back them up I’ve added a platoon of Volkovian Knights and a Beam Tank: For the A.L.L I’ve actually only built Gnossian forces, again you’ve seen my Sector Army […]

North and South Cameria go to War!

Thinking I’d make use of the some of the figures seen in my last post I’ve embarked on a long intended project within the Deathzap universe, that being the Camerian Civil War. I’ve started by painting two simple skirmish forces of North and South Camerians using the old Airfix Afrika Korps and 8th Army. First […]
