I recently decided to try one of the clip on lens kits for mobile phones and purchased one for my MotoG4. As I paid a whole £1 for the kit, I wasn’t expecting a lot for my money.
The lens kit comes with a macro lens, a wide angle lens, and a fish eye lens. For taking shots of miniatures and models, the macro lens was the one that I was most interested in. Continue reading Have a Closer Look→
A couple of weeks ago, my gaming buddies and me got a chance to try out Legends of the Alliance the companion app for Star Wars Imperial Assault.
The app takes the place of the imperial player and allows all the players to play cooperatively against the imperials. So far we have enjoyed the game, the artificial intelligence of app is really good and offers a new challenge for the players and I’d recommend it to anyone that currently owns Imperial Assault or is looking to get into it.

I’ve been playing a campaign of Frostgrave with some friends lately and I’ve been inspired to start working on making a lot of wargaming terrain for it.
I decided to use some Hirst Arts Fieldstone moulds and cast up a load of pieces to make the models, unfortunately I don’t have any work in progress pictures of my work but I hope you enjoy this gallery of the completed models.
Off and on for a while now I’ve been playing the excellent In Her Majesty’s Name.At Salute, a few years back, I picked up a copy of rule book and two companies (Lord Curr’s Company and the Servants of Ra).
Since then I’ve bought the two expansion books released and more importantly have painted the minis and made some terrain for the game.
I was inspired by the Servants of Ra and decided to make an Egyptian theme table with a small town and ruins. Here’s some pics of a recent game.
We played the “Death At Your Heels” scenario, which involves the companies racing from one table edge to the opposite table edge, to avoid a hail of artillery barrage raining death down on them.
Currently running a campaign of Star Wars Imperial Assault from Fantasy Flight Games.
I’m playing as the Imperial overlord and attempting to give those pesky Rebel terrorists a difficult time.
It’s a really nice game and to up to Fantasy Flight Games usual standard with fantastic game pieces, tiles, and cards with great artwork and lets not forget the great miniatures that come with the game, although some variation in the poses of the Imperial figures would have been nice.
The rules are very similar to Descent, which is not a bad thing as I quite like Descent – Journeys in the Dark with a few tweaks to improve the game and make it have the proper feel for Star Wars.
Stormtroopers swarm onto the RebelsThe campaign system is very good and has great replay ability due to the Agenda and Side Mission card decks being different in each campaign.
A recommended game if you’re a tabletop gamer and a Star Wars fan.
Was recently at Springhill, a 17th-century Plantation house in Moneymore, cared for by the National Trust and in the Drawing Room of the house is a display case that has what looks like a type of D10, which is very cool to me.
Not sure what games it was used for, did 17th-century plantation home owners play Vampire the Masquerade?
