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 ;-)

And the 5th Game of our Limes Campaign 

Last Romans vs. Germanic People

Our club’s Saga players gathered again for another Saga Games Night, but this time it was a special: first go with Saga 2.0
Last Romans (me) faced Germanic People in 5th year game of our Limes Campaign (Rome currently leading 15-8 vs. Barbarians). Other games were Saracens vs. Normans (playing Crusaders) and Vikings vs. Scots. A full battle report on my game and conclusions on how we all felt about Saga 2.0 follows...

Gentelemen's Saga-tournament

Winter War Saga-tournament

Finally the days had arrived! Nopat & Taktiikka Club's famous Winter War Tournament Weekend
with some 150 players fighting it out in some 7 different game systems including 40K, 9th Age, FoW, Bolt Action, Infinity, Guildball and SAGA!

I had been organizing the Saga-tournament since November and was delighted to finally get into action! Unfortunately 2 out of 8 players had cancelled, but as you can see, the committed bunch of Warlords started the day in very good humours!

Sohei Buntai and a new start for Ronin (by Osprey)

Fight for the Temple

The long wait to get back into "Samurai-gaming" was finally over. Throughout the fall of 2017 we had been chatting about getting a small Ronin campaign going with my mates Joonas and Juha (a 4th player needed!). Joonas had the responsibility to get us organized, but our good doctor seemed too busy... Finally in our club's Christmas party (held in January) I managed to corner him and we agreed this date our calendars!
