Kruul believes orcs should be the dominant race on Athien and is hellbent on seeing it so in his life time. He is outspoken in his support of the new gods and believes they are the key to delivering orcs to their rightful place. His views have placed him in direct opposition with Haksa, and the two are on a collision course that could plunge orcs into a bloody civil war.Continue reading “Hero Focus: Kruul”
Thrommel is a keg. An armour-plated immovable object with a warhammer that stands higher than his own head. Black hair and beard shrouded in heavy helmet, thick muscles and no neck. A will of iron and a heart of gold. He is a clear example of the old dwarven ideals and his dedication to the royal line makes him one of the strongest royalist icons, which makes him loved and despised among mainland dwarves as the divide in their society deepens.Continue reading “Hero Focus: Thrommel”
Istariel has no time for the demands of others or even for the pleasantries that make society tick, even among the elves she is seen as arrogant and unbending. Typically, this attitude would have resulted in numerous physical conflicts until she bent…or broke, however she couples her contempt with one of the greatest natural talents at controlling flame that has ever been seen on Athien.Continue reading “Hero Focus: Istariel”
Rakkir is a deadly killer, specialising in the various toxins and poisons of Athien. Exceptionally agile and stealthy for an Orc, Rakkir quickly rose through the ranks of his local thieves guild, before striking out on his own as a hired assassin. His reputation stretches the length and breadth of the land and anyone rumoured as being a target of the Blood Shadow is considered a dead man walking.Continue reading “Hero Focus: Rakkir”
2019 was a reasonably good year for gaming, averaging out at around 1.5 games a week – impressive as I wasn’t always able to get a game in every week, due to holidays / sickness etc.
My overall win rate (discounting demo games as I always play to lose…) was 45%, with the average being dragged down predominantly by Warmachine/Hordes (38%). Judgement was better (46%), and Infinity was best (56%). Technically Aristeia should be top (67%) but considering I only played 3 games of that in total, I think we can safely say that the stat is skewed a bit!
Carrying on with game numbers, I seem to have played more games of Warmachine/Hordes (40) than I have of Judgement (19) and Infinity (18) combined! More details after the break.Continue reading “2019 Gaming and Hobby Retrospective”

Monsters in Judgement are a neutral antagonist to both players. They can really hurt and hamper your plans, but the best players can use Monsters to their own benefit via board placement and control, and the ability to move models around via Combat Manoeuvres or certain Active Abilities.Continue reading “The Monsters – Judgement Intro Series”
Judgement does something unique with their dice mechanics. Rather than stacking probability on top of probability like other games (e.g. roll to hit then roll to damage then roll to save) there is only one dice roll, and the quality of that roll determines everything.Continue reading “Dice Mechanics – Judgement Intro Series”
In Judgement, the Heroes and Monsters have cards (much like Warmachine). These are available for free online from the Judgement Print’n’Play page, as well as via the Warband Commander app for Android or Apple. Or for those of you would want a physical card but don’t own a printer, they can be purchased from Drive Thru Cards. I have also made some Printer Friendly cards available from my Judgement Resources page.Continue reading “The Cards – Judgement Intro Series”
