“If I could create an ideal world, it would be an England with the fire of the Elizabethans, the correct taste of the Georgians, and the refinement and pure ideals of the Victorians.” H P Lovecraft.
I love the works of HP Lovecraft, and more so the Call of Cthulhu RPG which his ‘weird and uncanny’ stories spawned, with its sanity (or lack of) tables, and unnerving sense of doom that each new discovery brings, edging the Human Race ever closer to the edge….!
New this month from Mantic is the first supplement for their Kings of War rules set – KINGS AND LEGENDS.
a 48 page, Softback book, the supplement contains not only characters for each of the factions at war in Mantica, but also presents a new force: The Ogres.
The writing, by Allessio Cavatore (rules) and Andy Hoare (background) is well presented and clear. Each of the races gets at least two characters, with photos of the minis for each (or drawings where a miniature hasn’t yet been finished).
In this article, I am going to unbox the Bolt Action: British Army starter set. Warlord games have made it incredibly easy to start building a Force for Bolt Action.
There are two ways: you can buy the ‘Assault on Normandy’ starter pack, which gives you two forces, a rule book and scenery ( which can be found here ), or if you don’t like the forces in the box (Americans and Germans) you can buy a separate rulebook and a 1000 point Starter box, of which there are several to choose from (which is what I did).
Where to start?
Shall we start as David Copperfield did? “To begin my life with the beginning of my life, I record that I was born”? Maybe not that far back!
However, my life long obsession with toy soldiers started not long after….
On my 4th or 5th birthday, I received a set of toy soldiers, and scenery to play with. Being the younger of two brothers, my elder brother got the other half of the set for his birthday (our birthdays being 24 days apart this wasn’t an issue).
