The invasion of Normandy was one of the most important events in the 20th century. Soon, you'll be able to recreate those pivotal days on your tabletops with Ultracombat Normandy. Dishdash Games is bringing you a new set of miniatures game rules, and you can get the hardcover book, as well as three decks of cards for one special price.Discuss
When it comes to skirmish miniatures games, there's a bunch of sci-fi ones. There's fewer, but still a decent number of fantasy ones as well. But if you're looking for modern military, it's a little harder to find. Well, Dishdash Games is helping out with their Ultracombat game. You can check it out on Kickstarter now.Discuss
Or maybe I don't, since I'm not a part of Toto (even if I do feel love isn't always on time). Radio Dishdash has released Skirmish Afrika, their new modern African military expansion for Skirmish Sangin. It might just be raining lead down in Africa.
