Sharp Practice: Terrain, Tokens, and Reference Cards!

Image result for vintage wargaming

It's been a busy month with work, kids soccer and school, and the weather has been extremely hot! So not a lot of stuff done in terms of actual gaming. I did manage to make and purchase a few good things, though. Check them out.

Pas De Charge - Building a French Napoleonics Force for Sharp Practice


I previously showed my British troops for the Peninsular campaign and now I'm almost done assembling my French troops. I am aiming to have everything painted by the first weekend in February when we have FlintCon.

Building a Peninsular War Napoleonic Force for Sharp Practice


I've been flopping about an idea for my next Sharp Practice participation game - you may remember last year when we did ACW - and I've looked at The American War of Independence, The Texas Revolution, and finally The Napoleonic Wars. I've chosen to do a game set in the Peninsula during the Napoleonic Wars.

A Tale of Four Warlords: Blood Angels for 8th Edition


I finally got a chance to play some Warhammer 40k 8th edition. So far I have played a total of three games and I have enjoyed each one. I decided to start out in the new edition with my Blood Angels. I primarily played my Tau almost exclusively in 7th edition in friendly games and local tournaments. I almost considered selling my Blood Angels but its hard when you have all the models setup in a nice display case. Anyway, I bought in with the Primaris Marine portion of the new Dark Imperium box set. This was actually the first time I have ever bought a 40k starter set.

A Tale of Four Warlords: Genestealer Cult Army Lists


If you've been a fan of Games Workshop games for any period of time you'll likely recall the 'Tale of Four Warlords' articles in White Dwarf. Players choose an army and show progress from building, painting, and playing a force. They provide their thoughts on how it goes and show lots of photos. We're planning on doing that here with three of us for the new edition of 40k. We aren't necessarily starting new armies, but we're expanding our current forces to include some more options and have fun!

Bloodbowl!! League and Hobby Update


I have been the lone FCG representative playing one of GW's all time best games, Bloodbowl! The game received a new box set last year with great new minis and a updated pitch. It's been awhile since I played using BB miniatures instead opting for the online version on my PC. The new box set inspired me to sink my teeth into the hobby side again as well as join a league at my local store. It's been a lot of fun and the rules were easy to pick up again. Hobby and some league highlights below.
