Pagan Rus / Eastern Princes for Saga Age of the Wold Campaign

From the Frozen Steppes they come

As another Saga campaign started I finally got around to paint more Rus / Medieval Russian minis I had acquired through the last five years from Grippingbeast, FireForge, Old Glory and Magister Militarium, to name a few sources ;-)

Salute 2018

My first time

I've been to Hamburger Tactica three times (it's a great show) and ones to Warfare, but 
so far had dodged visiting Salute, possibly because the image I had in mind about it: rushed and crowded shopping event, where one can't join in on games (something I've really enjoyed in Tactica). Now I was part of  Dalauppror's international team making a display game of a Great Northern War: Battle of Stäket 1719 (there will be a separate blog post on this project). This motivated me to go and simultaneously my wife and one of my three daughters came to see the marvels of London. 
How convenient!

First go with the Rising Sun by CMON

Happy victims of another CMON kick starter gathered try out recently arrived Rising Sun boardgame. Read on how it went and how did we like it.

4 of us from the Nopat & Taktiikka Club had participated in the kick starter and most of us had already gotten the game (not me as I was late with my payment for the delivery :-( ). So we were more than eager to give it a go. Marko also joined us as one of us had to cancel.

Unboxing STAR WARS Legion

Dream of a Star Wars Fan - Wargamer came true?

I was very positively surprised when our local game store Fantasiapelit sent me an email yesterday, announcing that pre-ordered Star Wars Legion -products could be picked up today! I had been warned, that deliveries from FFG or their European distributor haven’t always been in time.
So even if suffering from a nasty flue I hauled myself towards downtown Helsinki and got my precious loot! 

Read on to see what’s in the box and first minis put together and base coated...

Warhammer Fantasy Battle!

Tomb Kings vs. Empire 2000p.

Old gaming friend Jussi contacted me and suggested a game WFB I was happy to oblige.  As it was going to be a totally friendly game, I chose to dust of old Tomb Kings I hadn't used for ages. I also continued painting these Ushabti with great bows, they had seen a field of battle only once before (I guess I wasn't pleased with their performance back then) and I had left them unfinished. I had caught a cold or flue over the weekend, but didn't want to cancel so the game was on!

Read on to find out if we still remembered how to  play this classic ;-)
