Just keeping up my regular posts to keep me thinking about wargaming and RPG fun, even when I don’t have a chance to play! As you’ve probably spotted already, I’m setting up a mini-campaign with SaintAidan. I like a campaign feel to wargaming – every battle means a little bit more, and it stops being just a “1500pts battle” – you want to know how Captain Marcus of the Imperial Fists fares against his nemesis, Sorcerer Lord Tepemkau of the Thousand Sons, for example. Although I haven’t actually done much, I’ve been really enjoying trying to put together an army for this campaign. Currently, I’m looking at Imperial Fists with a Bastion, plus a small force of Silver Skulls with a prognosticar, tactical squad and Stormtalon, together with a small force of Eldar rangers, maybe with Ilic Nightspear as the eldar HQ.
On the Xbox, I finished the single player story mode of Injustice: Gods among us – really fun game! Fighting games are easy to pick up and play, which is ideal for gaming with a munchkin taking up so much time.
On the PC, I managed to pick up the complete Total War line of games through Steam for very little – 75% off this deal with already fairly cheap games, so less than £20 for 7 games of wargaming strategic fun. Huzzah! Looking forward to Empire (building the British Empire) and Napoleon. Very tempted to preorder the new Rome II as well!
RPG-wise I’ve been really enjoying reading about Numenera!
