Ronnie and I talk about the great stuff going on with Kings of War, Walking Dead and Star Saga.  I have pics on my facebook page.  I hope to separate everything by company this year. Any way I am looking forward to the new Kings of War game.

I hope this king lives for a long long time.

I decided to do a write up of this game after my first two games played.  I also watched a third.  The most amazing thing is they occurred one after another in a space of five hours.  This is a new game to my group.  We backed it on Kickstarter.  

We went whole hog, full bore, so to speak.  Not content to just kill the other player we decided to play scenarios as the designers intended.  The armies used were Marauders (Orc like race), Galactic Co-Prosperity Sphere (Normal Human Soldiers), and Forge Fathers (Dwarves).  I was maneuvered into playing Forge Fathers.  Not a choice I would have normally made.  After my two games I love the stunty little bastids’.  We played at 1250 point suggested level.

I really don’t know where to start.  Ronnie is such a character maybe we should start with him.  It’s short but it’s all the time he had on Sunday.

What did you catch?  Blaine is going on an adventure.  At Mantic Saturday I heard rumors about Dungeon Saga in Space, and a Kings of War skirmish game.  I really can’t wait for that.

9d9071124d9150a462cad733602cdfac_originalThis is another game by Mantic Games.  I don’t know too much about it, in fact I even missed the Kickstarter. I know that it was a huge hit, like all the games they make.  This is a bit different though it features the characters from the comic book.

Check out the kickstarter,  “The team will be taking pre-orders ahead of the retail release and you will be able to have a look through a production copy of the game. If you swing by stand 833 you can also pick-up your own free Walker figure – but be quick, because numbers are limited.  ”  That’s from the Mantic Games news letter.

And please check out my Gen Con  Go Fund Me. Just sharing will be a huge help.

Deadzone 2nd Edition is now out in stores and pre-orders have been dispatched from the warehouse. Over the course of the next few months we’ll be re-introducing the faction starters and boosters for almost all of the races and introducing new ones – such as the Veer-myn.

Deadzone Infestation – Exham IV Expansion

Once a gem of GCPS exploitation, Exham IV is now a world tearing itself apart. Subject to the largest infestation of Veer-Myn ever located, the elite Enforcers were dispatched to contain the outbreak before the creatures could spread. The Enforcers’ ship was shot down before it could make landfall.

I caught up with Ronnie Renton of Mantic Games while at Adepticon.  We chatted about, Kings of War, Dreadball, Dungeon Saga, Warpath, and the possibility of an RPG.  I always have a good time with Ronnie.

Maybe I should pitch the RPG and then move across the sea.

Dungeon Saga is a game of high adventure in a fantasy world of heroes and monsters. Players take the roles of the evil overlord who lurks in the dungeon depths, or the brave heroes who venture into the darkness to face them. Each character and minion in the game is represented by a miniature figurine, and the dungeon is represented by a series of floor tiles that can be laid out on your tabletop. Players will need all of their wits about them to fight their way through the dungeon, with a little help from the cards, counters and dice included in the box.

Ronnie tells us about Dungeon Saga the Kings of war rules what’s new for Warpath and Daeadzone and the Dreadball ranking system that’s coming soon.

I played Dungeon Saga and it has a good feel to it.  What I mean by that is it’s not like some of the other dungeon crawl games on the market where you feel like your’e playing a board game.  In Dungeon Saga I felt like the mechanics blended well with the story too.   I will definitely be bringing more to you in the near future.
