Well it seems that I have been remiss again, having disappeared for a while from the blogging scene! I must apologise for this dereliction of duty...work has been hectic and so my hobby time has been sadly curtailed of late.

However on the plus side it seems that my second career as a Wargames Journalist has begun to take off, which is very encouraging.

After having a couple of articles published in Issues 79 and 82 of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy I am pleased to say that I now have a full four page spread in the latest issue of that veritable publication (Issue 84).

Image

In fact this article is also accompanied by numerous photographs of my models in action - if you look closely at the bottom right of the front cover above you can see my Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Knights (as featured in last year's BOYL15 Game: Fallout vs Rogue Trader).

Image

The actual article itself focuses on facilitating games set during the post-apocalypse utilising a variety of rule sets and available models.

Throughout the piece there are some decent photographs of my models including my Enclave Troops, NCR Rangers and Necromunda gangers.

The rules I've looked at in depth are, Tomorrow's War, This is Not a Test and Black Ops.

Image

I have also custom written two post-apocalyptic scenarios that can either be played as stand alone missions or as the basis of a larger campaign if it tickles your fancy.

It is my sincere desire that this article will bring general PA gaming more into the main stream and hopefully draw in a few more adherents to this particularly cool niche of our hobby!

Also later in the magazine I have written a one page review on Terminator: Genisys, The Miniatures Game, which will hopefully prove informative for those of you considering giving this particularly game a whirl.

If you're interested in reading either articles then you can order the magazine at:

Nice!!!

So, for Post Apoc rules, what would you recommend? I am clearly a Post Apoc fan (if Deadlands 3000 is any clue LOL) I was thinking about the "This is not a Test" rules, but it seemed a bit complex for a skirmish game. However I was also looking at the Judge Dredd rules from Warlord games, it has a Necromunda/Post apoc feel to it. Just curious what you think s the best/funnest rules set would be.

I use multiple sets of rules as post apocalyptic is my favourite setting too.

I actually find Rogue Trader to be really good for small scale PA skirmishes, though additionally Necromunda can also be used with a small set of alterations.

More modern rules such as Black Ops from Osprey and Across the Dead Earth are also quite good depending on what takes your fancy.
