Shadow Wars: Armageddon! I am very excited to see GW return to campaign-skirmish games! GW’s Necromunda is one of my all-time favorite tabletop games, and I played it for many years beyond it’s supported life. I never really got into Kill Team but when SW:A was announced, I found reason to dig through storage, finally cracking […]Read more "Shadow Wars: Armageddon and Mantic terrain"
Orx marauders are Mantic’s version of space orks, imagined as hard-bitten greenskin aliens that scavenge deadzones and sell their services as mercenaries to the highest bidder. The Mantic crew has origins in the old Games Workshop studio and the Marauder models certainly show this influence. Unlike GW Orks, these greenskins are relatively armored and perform decently enough in […]Read more "Deadzone: Marauders."

After decades of grimdark, I really wanted a sci-fi setting that was more in line with futurist cyberpunk glass and neon stylings. […]Read more "Deadzone: Urban Commerical District scenery project."
My Deadzone terrain is shaping up. Another urban district pack or two and I’ll be happy. I’ve divided my terrain into two types of table settings: industrial and urban commercial. The industrial table harkens back to my days playing GW’s Necromunda on flimsy cardstock terrain. Lots of tall towers connected by precarious catwalks, open walls […]Read more "Deadzone: Industrial Terrain update."
Pathfinders are the recon troops used by the GSCP Enforcers as scouts. They are not an individual faction but chosen from the Enforcer list. Thankfully, there are enough choices to field an entire Pathfinder strike team and the multipart plastic sprues included with the Deadzone: Infestation Kickstarter campaign are quite lovely.
