Big Boys

A nice day was had bumbling around our local ‘big town’ Barnstaple today and the Mrs and I took our weekly pilgrimage to the finest discount shop B&M. Most of the time it’s fairly slim pickings in the toy section but today that was definitely not the case! 76 pieces for £5, sure there’s two […]

Getting Back Into Deathzap

The Simple Toy Soldier Game

Here’s a belated Christmas present from me to you, my attempt at a tactical, yet simple rule set with the goal of quickly and excitingly playing out firefights between small squads of troops with modern weapons. I’ve had a lot of fun with this rule set over the last couple of years since it popped […]
