First Wolsung Game Impressions With Ben & Rob

45 Comments

We talk with Ben & Rob who are getting stuck into their first game of Wolsung here at the Boot Camp and talk with them about what they think so far...

It involved a fair bit of sniping with one of Rob's poor souls from the Scylla gang getting shot through a window by an eagle-eyed opponent from the Ash & Oak. These fellows are surrounded!

It’s Prize Time For Adrian!

36 Comments

Adrian has won himself a copy of Lord James Foley here at the event, a Henchman who can work with any faction.

He was able to dive and kill one of his foes and hunted down his enemies, wiping them off the tabletop - this was a lot of effort but he walks away with an awesome prize.

Two of our Boot Camp members have headed on over to our signature table and have come up with a scenario of their own with a narrative and awesome twist.

With some house rules in play, they're looking to try and steal the boat from the docks whilst having to fight off each other for this prize most assuredly laden down with goods and treasures they can sell on the black market.

Hopefully, we'll be seeing some finished miniatures by the end of the weekend but we think he's done a superb job picking out the details so quickly and working through those base colours.

Feature Tables - Lukasz Table Tactics & Design Chat

40 Comments

We take a look at some of the tables that we set up here for the Boot Camp and discuss them tactically with Lukasz to get an idea of how they play, and what you should consider when it comes to building tables yourself.

Wolsung is a game of deep narrative and so you want to tell a story with your tabletops AND you want to include some great ways to create cinematic events too. Height and close proximity battles are key!

Peter Wins the 4th Challenges Prize With Daring Gusto

29 Comments

Peter was able to swipe some more goodies from us as he completed another set of challenges starting off with a diving charge from a vampire...sounds pretty epic to us.

This was also followed by the same Vampire taking down two policemen and using his tactics to his advantage. This vampire needs to get a medal...and a new model!

Don't worry, we gave him Harriet Kinsley in the end!

Food Time...But Is Gerry Distressed?

The food arrives for today and folks get stuck into some grub to fuel them up for an afternoon of gaming here at BoW HQ.

We promised it, and here it is. Join Gerry and Lloyd as they show you how to paint up Cobblestone Bases for your miniatures in Wolsung in short fashion!

The final effect, I think you'll agree, is fantastic and certainly shows off a nice technique for framing your models on the tabletop.

Ending The Epic Custom Scenario

31 Comments

We come to the end of our Epic Boat Stealin' scenario that was playing out earlier in the day and see how it all played out.

So...what kind of custom scenarios have you designed for Wolsung?

The Theatrical Premiere Gets Crowded

20 Comments

Everyone is getting into the first scenario of the day that comes from the Wolsung Organised Play packs.

In this scenario players can attempt to collect tickets from the Ticket Booth however as the tickets sell out they become harder to obtain.

To get around this you can form base-to-base queues to make success more likely, however, these queues are turning nasty as brawls kick off and we've even see Hans Gerät get pushed off a walkway, falling to his death!

Loving Wolsung right now and seeing everyone getting into the fun fast gameplay.

Theatre Premiere Scenario Gets Underway

28 Comments

It's time to fight over tickets and see if you can get your gang to the Theatre Premier! It's very British and people are going to be queuing but there's also plenty of battles going on to.

This is quite an interesting style of scenario which may end up gifting you with some awesome goodies!

Catching Up With Speedy Gaz & His Marvellous Painting

34 Comments

We think that sounds a little like a cool shop or emporium from the world of Wolsung, don't you think?

Take a look at some of the progress that Gaz has made with these models and how things are coming along...

It's Time To Introduce Scenario Two

26 Comments

It's time to race towards those ticket booths once again as well as get to killing in order to get your hands on ways to bet on the upcoming race...yes, you hear about a race there!

We think it's rather awesome to have more of these narrative scenarios playing out. Winner winner, chicken dinner!

What's On The Board Miss Ford!

24 Comments

We take a look at what the scores on the board are...Miss Ford. Well, Justin anyway.

We hope that these are going to play out into some great goodies for folks AND an interesting idea of how the rest of the scenarios will play out.

Action In The Streets

19 Comments

We took some time to get down amongst the action and have a look at some of the combats breaking out between the different characters on the streets of Lyonesse.

Wolsung really does invoke some cool moments buoyed on by the awesome characters and the quick and easy mechanics.

It's time for us to meet one of the newer factions for the world of Wolsung in The Scylla. They are the Halfling Mafia for all intents and purposes and come with some underhanded tricks for the tabletop.

They also have some of the coolest looking miniatures out there...and it's hard not to consider painting them in Dick Tracy colours really isn't it?

I think I would go for The Scylla and Ash & Oak.
Is there a reason why there are 2 versions of the starter sets? Is it just two bundle deals?

They just come with different characters if you’d prefer to start playing using a different set of models

Your heroes can recruit a variety of different henchmen, makes for a different game each time you play.

There doesn’t appear to be much overlap between any of the starters, either. That’s nice if you’re trying to build up some options on a budget.

couldn’t afford a ticket before they sold out, but i got myself a Gigantic Golem and a bag of magnets to put together while i watch over the weekend, and for those who think a giant robot is a strange way to get into a new game, I say iv got a GIANT ROBOT.

Gigantic Golem is awesome, need to get mine assembled. Love my Ash and Oak and Van Rier are very interesting to play.

Ye man you should really consider getting one, super nice to clean up and get ready, im trying to finger out where to put some magnets on it, but a standard assembly would take no time. But come on Inventors all the way, although Ash &Oak do have lady Dorothy on the awesome bike thing, so not the worst choice.

Who are the three special Boot Camp figures shown on the web site? What faction(s) do they work for? The halfing looks like an Inventor but could work for Scylla, the swordsman Ash and Oak and the lady Ven Rier?

Still no building painting tutorials?
