    My biggest as-yet unsolved challenge is how to do castles in the 25th Century. Because both sides still use castles, and besieging and taking castles is definitely a big part of campaign goals.

    Does this mean neither side has figured out aircraft yet? Because one good bombing run renders castles obsolete.

    Very cool, I had not heard of this game before.

    Well, you have now!

     

    Your lack of knowledge is probably because I am no longer posting gaming content on FaceBook these days…

    So what does the cat do for your team?

    The cat can move EXTREMELY fast and eat the face off of another player’s Downed crewmember, thereby killing them instead of having them roll on the Injury/Death table after the game. The Bengal Cat that I recruited can loot dead bodies and carry one piece of loot. Other kinds of cats have other abilities. I feel like this is really the game for me, as they have an entire supplement dedicated to cats and trenchcoats (but, alas, not cats in trenchcoats.)

    How do the Martians fit in? A tripod feels a bit overkill…

    To be honest, I’m not quite sure yet. Kurt has a tripod meant for 15mm games that he plans on using as a Hostile, but it’s smaller than a Fiat on legs so maybe a one-martian vehicle. Plus a lot of the poison gas floating around the battlefield is Martian in origin.

    I have difficulty NOT camoflaging AFV models. Which gives a weird look because my scenery is in four different flavor themes: green, white, blue, and pink.

    The Chaos army lists in both Slaves To Darkness and The Lost And The Damned were meant to replace the Chaos army list in Warhammer Armies. It was one of the first cases of the game designers increasing the power levels at a similar points cost in list building. Eventually that became the trend we see now, where every new army list released is better than the ones that were published previously, throwing balance out the window and creating a reliance on clever scenario design for an even game.

    If you can find it, Dragon #25 has an Aztec wargame called “Xochiyaoyotl” starting on page 37. I’ve never been inclined to build forces that big for Aztec wargaming, but it seems like a reasonable, old-school crunchy wargame.

    The figure looks great. Adding a green stuff “maxtli” loincloth where the belt buckle is would make the figure pop. But I have to be “that guy” and mention that indigenous people couldn’t really grow substantial beards. In fact the Aztecs had proscriptions against any facial hair. Young male children had hot compresses applied to their faces to stifle hair follicle development. Apparently, elderly Aztecs of high social standings could wear beards, which were small and wispy. “That guy” mode off. (And I do realize this is in the Fantasy section)

    Fantasy dwarfs have beards in my book, even when they live in the House Of Tezca and travel southeast to Far Payit 😉 I am well aware of the historical facts of Aztec and other Native American facial hair 🙂

    Interesting conversion, I love the idea and the things such as the shield, weapon and colours. Only thing that looks a bit off are the clothes and the belt, but I’m hardly an expert on the culture. It’s a very nice change and take on the classic fantasy races. Reminds me of those Roman Orcs I once saw.

     

    Thank you. I figured since the Aztecs had pants attached to their suits, and Apaches had belts and high boots, this wouldn’t be too far beyond reason. I made the buckle and hairpiece gold, because, well dwarfs and gold go so well together…

    Urm – OK – yes love it. Super idea and a great change from the ‘classical’ viking or bright orange look. Is it a one-off or will you do more?

    Thank you. This will probably be a one-off. If I get a crazy hair, I might make an opponent group of 12 for gaming, but in the Maztica setting that I am using, the dwarfs from the House Of Tezca desert are a long way from the jungles of Payt where the adventurers are.

    Very refreshing to see something used for a fantasy game other than the traditional semi medievalish figures. Nice job!

    Thank you. I’ve been wanting to Aztec fantasy since the late ’80s, and now it’s all coming togeter. My other “big” solo campaign is set in Glorantha and features Hellemized ducks as the main protagonists. I also have a Medieval Fantasy campaign, but for a bit of difference, I made it Spanish instead of Continental. And because it is Fantasy, Ancient Egypt is right across the Strait of Gibraltar. For their next zone of adventure.

    Nice paintwork. Shame the joins on the arms meeting the body is obvious, perils of multipart plastics for flesh I guess. Still tidy though.

    Thank you. The joins aren’t perfect, the models are VERY heroic for historicals, and they aren’t 100% accurate, but I’ve been waiting for hard plastic Aztecs in a scale I use since the early 1980s so I still love them 🙂

    We’re pretty poor due to the pandemic right now. So hobby budget is determined by need versus want; needs are replacement brushes, paints, and sprays, or a few stray miniatures to finish a project. A want is an expansion to an existing force or a new force entirely. Needs are discussed andvcan be worked into our existing shopping budget. Wants are putvoff until we have a little extravv

    Amazing that cultists could do anything, let alone hold against Space Marines. So let me ask this: with not liking this edition so far, will y’all be going back to 2nd edition or early 8th?

    We will continue to learn 9th. Among our little group, we much prefer the Xenos Rampant bolt-on for Dragon Rampant. However, knowing 9th is important when meeting new people and being involved in club games. And, out of the blue, my friend Brian (with whom I have not gamed with in many years) invited me to join the 9th edition Crusade campaign he is playing with his his brother and nephew. So it helps that I am familiar with the rules and have an rules-compliant army ready to go.

    I started in 2nd and really enjoyed it. I had fun with 3rd, but didn’t like 4th and that is when I departed from 40K.

    2nd is when, in my opinion, it all started going wrong. I had a lot of fun with 2nd, don’t get me wrong, but the first edition right out of the book was the best. 3rd made me want to play other games instead, and I guess I should be thankful because that directly lead to me being taken on board by Dark Age Games as a developer a few years later. That was great fun while it lasted!

    We played the Cultists properly: parked on Objectives and screened by bigger, tougher, shootier guys.

    We will play 9th a few more times amongst ourselves to be more familiar with the rules, so that we know what we are doing for pick up games or events by Las Vegas Wargamers. When we settle back to just having fun, we will go back to using Xenos Rampant, or FiveCore if we want smaller games.

    This is new. It’s sometimes painful to watch at the beginning but I’m hoping these guys will grow fast and become as powerful as the raft.

    The Generic medieval Fantasy warband had a lot of really bad dice rolls here, and the wolves had a lot of good ones. I think there were only two turns where anyone went before the wolves did. But the next episode will show a little more success!
