enforcers-plagueWarpath Firefight: The Other Sci-Fi Game from England

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.

At Gen Gen Con Kevin and I chatted about Robotech Tactics, Rifts and  all things Palladium.  Kevin answers some good questions in here that are from Ben Parker, Jorel Levenson, Marnie Jefferson, Matt Trotta, Graham Bailey,  Oscar Mardones Schopflin, and Dave Knighthawk. Thanks guys.

It’s always a good talk when I get to sit down with Kevin.  I managed to ease drop a bit and while I can’t tell you what I heard I can affirm the plans for Robotech Tactics and Rifts are just out of this world.

 

The Drake is only about 50 pieces, but it seems like two hundred.

Drakerys is a miniatures game From Don’t Panic Games.  This game demo shows you the basics using the two player starter.  It is my opinion that this is the hidden gem of Gen Con. I’m so glad Derek Osbourne pointed it out to me.

I truly believe in the time initiative mechanic they have built, I felt it gave the miniatures game a real time feel.
