The Art Of Swordplay In Test Of Honour

3 Comments

I got to take a look at a tabletop that I think Lance would enjoy with this one for Test Of Honour. We're certainly interested to see how this game plays more and delve deeper into it.

The colourful designs and the kind of tabletops it inspires is worth considering.

The bright and verdant look of Gates Of Antares is something of an awesome sight on the tabletop and very different from everything else out there.

Blood Red Skies Demo Game

Ben takes to the skies with Rich of Warlord Games to test his dog fighting tactics across the battlefield.

@Brennon Please check out some Pike and Shotte?
It’s cool that they invited Mantic along. Some companies would have avoided any distraction from their own products. Glad to see they’re bigger than that (and TWD is a fantastic game, but I did buy a Warlord Project Z zombie sprue to add variety to my horde). 🙂

It’s a very small world, its much harder to find companies that don’t get on that do, any rivalries are purely from looking from the outside of the gold fish bowl…

Wanted to go to this, but couldn’t commit early, massive wallet peril and a sinus infection killed it as a last minute option. Great to see the coverage, although it makes me wish I had gone.

Unfortunately there were no Konflikt ’47 games being played over the weekend. As far as I’m aware anyway, maybe there was a secret bunker somewhere.
