the top players in my Tuesday night war machine\hordes group got back from LnL,
two things have been going thru my head 1) I really need to go next year and 2)
How do I improve my game from a 0-4 to a 2-2…
Welcome to another unboxing for Warlord Games BOLT-Action products. This time I'm going with the tried and true method of a whole bunch of pictures to show whats up and see how everyone likes it. As always, comments and criticisms in the comments section below, so I can have some idea of how everyone prefers these reviews to be done (video or pictorials).
On to the review!
recently got in a discussion with some of my friends at my weekly war machine
night on the social aspect of our hobby. I’m not talking about the playing of
the game but rather the interactions between people. There is the obvious
conversation about “that does that?!?” or “how did you do that again”, but
there is the other parts such as “how’s life” or “how did your road trip go?”
and recently “I’m sorry to hear about your lose”.
I have found, what I believe, to be the holy-grail of miniature gaming systems. It's simple, fast, and most importantly, FUN to play. It is everything I love about wargaming in a hardbound tome of WWII awesomesauce. This game is the sweet sweet love-child of Warlord games and Osprey publishing, aka the company that employs most of the old crew from GW (Rick Priestly, Alessio Calvatore, Warwick Kinrade, Paul Sawyer, the Perry Twins, and more) AND the company that has written more reference books for historical wargaming than any 5 others PUT TOGETHER.
Allow me to introduce my new gaming love:
*Insert God rays*
The system itself is very intuitive and simple, revolving around 5 core mechanics:
recently at one of my LGS playing war machine/ hordes and I was asked why I was
playing there and not at my other league? My answer was simple: I wanted to
play against people of my level. My Tuesday night league is very competitive
and the majority of the players are REALLY good. I’m not an overly competitive
player and I need to get my bearings before I go to the next level.
