Apparently GW is bringing back Specialist Games:
I will be honest here, I think this is a desperate move of a company who detroyed, in the last decade, all the wargaming comunity they had, it feels just wrong.
I love most of these games, but GW do not produce games anymore and other companies have filled that void. Perhaps they are realising the huge mistakes they have done in the last decade and trying to fix them, sorry, too late for me (and, I guess, for a lot other players…)
But I’m happy for those whom will enjoy!
(and….I might buy some Epic Armageddon miniatures, if they still make them in 6mm, but a voice inside me is telling me it will be 15mm….who knows? Maybe Jervis?)

For the third year in a row I attended Crisis with some friends from the club. We still don’t have an “official” presence as club but Jurjen this year challenged himself in demoing a game of Waterloo in 6mm. Challenge won and congratulations to him!
The rest of the motley crew was just happy to walk around the venue, buy lot of stuff, talk with people and admire the amazing tables full of beautiful miniatures and fantastic scenery.
I noticed a considerable amounts of tables with Bolt Actions games, and world war II seems to be the period of choice even if the theme this year was Waterloo. Another popular game seems to be Frostgrave, almost every stand was selling the rulebook or the miniatures from North Star.
But my excitement was all for Beyond the Gates of Antares, I finally could get my hands on my pre-order copy filled with all the nice extra goodies. What an amazing product! As my friend told me just after I bought the box: “You already have four armies of a game that is available from today!”. Yes, that’s how much I like it!
But I didn’t forget good old Bolt Action and especially a must-have Tiger I because….well, because a Tiger I is always a must-have. These are the goodies I carried home:
And now a nice gallery of picture from the show:
It’s pre-Christmas month and probably wargaming companies have decided that huge boxes full of plastic miniatures are the way to go. After the Perry Twins American Civil War , Warlord games is rebating with a huge box to start collecting the American war of independence:
Content of the box:
3 plastic Mounted Commanders
90 plastic British Infantry
30 Hessian Infantry
120 Continental Infantry
30 plastic Colonial Militia
3 plastic field guns (6 or 9-pdr)
1 Molly Pitcher
8 plastic Woodland Indians
3 plastic Casualty Figures
Full colour flags for each regiment
1 Laser-cut wooden blockhouse
1 Laser-cut wooden ‘snake’ fences
3 resin gun gabions
Who’s going to win the battle of the big boxes with muskets?
