What’s Gus Playing: Total War: Warhammer 2 Tomb Kings – Part 2

July 17, 2018 - 02:00
Take a toiling tour of the terrible tombs ~ Lloyd Sabin, 16 July 2018 Still trying to get to those four other Books of Nagash as the Tomb Kings. This campaign has bogged down a bit – partially because I am a Tomb Kings noob and partially because the game play has become somewhat repetitive.

Cracking open DVG’s new Stalingrad game ~ Michael Eckenfels, 11 July 2018 The Battle of Stalingrad is a good time for wargamers – at least, for me it is. I do enjoy some Eastern Front WWII battlin’, but the campaign in 1942 is of special interest to me, considering its scope and objectives. Stalingrad isn’t

The Magnificent Munchkin of Martial Mayhem Meanders Mischievously ~ Lloyd Sabin, 2 July 2018 In this Tomb Kings campaign, the majority of the lore is brand new to me and strikes me as quite dark and bizarre. Damn it’s hot outside. As I write this it’s almost 100 degrees just beyond my window. I can’t
