Imperial Assault – Part Two

If you've been following any of my posts earlier in the year, or via my G+ page you'll have seen I've been steadily working my way through the Imperial faction troops from Fantasy Flight's Imperial Assault core game. Despite ostensibly being board game miniatures, the quality of the designs and production is every bit as good as I've come to expect from Fantasy Flight, who since X-Wing have been steadily moving up in my estimation. It's no secret that coming from a wargaming background I'm probably a miniature collector (hoarder!) and painter first, gamer second. As gaming time and particularly gaming space is much more of a premium these days, I find myself thinking back to the days when I used to play Heroquest or [...]

Having been impressed with the quality and playability of their X-Wing miniatures game, I thought I would give Imperial Assault a try as well. I'll be honest I'm going into the game pretty cold as I know very little about it other than the marketing blurb and [...]

Call Harry Stamper

I have been doing a bit of forward planning this week. Nothing drastic, just trying to keep the momentum going while I work my way through the Ultramarine assault squad currently on the painting table. Hobby time has been at a bit of a premium this past week as there have been a few jobs around the house that couldn't be ignored anymore. Actually, technically they are 'outside' the house but lets not split hairs. So, last month I showed the Babylon 5 ships I was speed painting up to get some games in with Kev at some stage. These are progressing much to plan and although nothing much to look at currently, are adequate enough to game with. What it has left me however [...]
