Warlord Games is selling off the last of their Test of Honour miniatures kits. Dont' worry, fans of the game. It's not coming to an end. It's just moving. Grey For Now will soon be taking it over. So Warlord's just clearing their inventory before the swap.
A new set for Test of Honour is available to pre-order from Warlord Games. In this case, it's a set of seven ronin. For those that don't know, ronin were masterless samurai who traveled around the countryside, helping those in need. They're also the only people I know of who made the man-bun hairstyle look good. Anyway, you can get your orders in now so that these seven samurai don't walk past your door.
Medieval Japan is full of badass warrior women in the form of the Onna-bugeisha. And they're hitting the battlefields in Test of Honour. Warlord Games is taking orders for the Onna-bugeisha of Asakura set. If you want to add to it, they also have separate sets of the different components you can get.
In Japan, it wasn't just the men who could train in martial arts and learn the Samurai ways. Women were able to do that as well, and many noblewomen did just that. They were called the Onna-Bugeisha, and if you'd like to add these kick-ass warrior women to your Test of Honour collections, you can put your name down on Warlord Game's list so they arrive as soon as possible.
As usual for Warlord Games, they've got a whole slew of new things to order for their various games. If you're a fan of Bolt Action, Konflikt '47, Pike & Shotte, or Test of Honour, you'll want to see what's new on the shelves. Konflikt '47 has the lion's share, but there's a little bit of everything.
Helloooooooo, Saturday. You know you're my favorite. I hope the other days of the week get jealous, but you're just so great. Time to put on some appropriate music and relax... and probably play some games, too. I plan on doing that as well. But, before I go do that, I gotta make sure the people get the gaming reviews I know they so desperately desire.
This week, we have: Go Nuts for Donuts, Loot N Shoot, London, Centipede, Stellium, DropMix, Cursed Court, Einstein, Peptide, Empires: Age of Discovery, Test of Honour Ronin, Photosynthesis, and Fast Forward series (Fear, Fortress, Flee).
Woo! Saturday! And I'm finally mostly over being sick. You never realize just how much you are thankful that you can breathe through your nose or take a couple breaths without coughing until that's exactly the opposite of how you're doing. Ah well. While I groove along to The Guess Who (because why not?), let's get you some gaming reviews.
This week, we've got: 51st State Master Set, Betrayal at Baldur's Gate, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past, Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle: The Monster Box of Monsters, Arkon, Pockety Odyssey, Noises at Night, Siege Storm, Rambo: the Board Game, Hardback, Voodoo, Palette Swap, Vast: The Crystal Caverns, Pryamids, Kingsburg (2nd Edition), Crossfire, Through the Desert (Euro Classics Edition), Nemesis, Bad Squiddo Games Onna-bugeisha, and Test of Honour: Ninjas of Iga Warband.
Even though ninjas never really wrapped themselves in black like we see in pop culture (that was a kabuki theater thing. Ninjas dressed like everyone else so they didn't stand out), it's still fun to have ninja figures running around on our battlefields in their iconic look. Well, if you're a Test of Honour player, you can grab a bunch of different ninja sets for the game. There's a big set, a blister, and the Dojo Assault bundle.
Kazmiizumi-kanchou, the famous sword master, sits in his dojo, quietly meditating. His sharp ears hear rustling outside. But it's not simply the wind through the trees. Someone's out there... multiple someones. He grabs his sword, ready to face whatever threat might be coming for him. That's what's happening in the Test of Honour: Dojo Assault set. Warlord Games is taking pre-orders for it now.
Woo! Saturday! Woo! As you're reading this, I'm over at the LGS, hanging out and just taking it easy. I'm hoping you're doing much the same (or have done so and are just reading this later, as I am typing this earlier). Either way, I hope you're able to make good use out of the day.
As for reviews. Of course we have those for you.
Today we have: Anachrony, Elo Darkness, Don't Mess With Cthulhu, Dragoon, Test of Honour Samurai Warband, Wreck and Ruin, Lignum, Downforce, Go Nuts for Donuts, Age of Rivals iOS, 1846: Race for the Midwest, Train Heist, and Posthuman.
In any society, there's going to be those who don't want to follow society's rules and would rather just forge their own path. This often means taking from others, leading to a rough life of banditry. Certainly, there were those types in feudal Japan, and Warlord Games is letting you control your own outlaw group with their Bandits and Brigands sets for Test of Honour.
It's Monday morning here (though I know this is going to be posted in the afternoon). I'm trying to type up as much of my posts today before the storm gets really bad, just in case power and/or internet goes out. Also, working from home since they closed the office. But neither rain nor sleet nor snow nor slush shall keep me from getting you those gaming news stories. At the moment, it's making sure your gaming tables look as good as possible.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Test of Honour Lantern & Katana Ruler Set, Heroic Maps - Modular Kit: Mossy Dungeon Corridors Now Available, Acheson Creations to Launch Kongo-Afrika Kickstarter, Terminus Segments Industrial Set Available From Micro Art Studio, and The Valley:Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames.
Warlord Games is bringing a new faction, as well as some new cavalry options to Test of Honour, their new far-Eastern miniatures skirmish game. The new faction is Ch?bei’s Renegades. They're based on a real figure from Feudal Japan. Ch?bei is seen as a Robin Hood type of character, who would protect the peasants from bandits and wandering samurai who might wish to do them harm. The other new unit is the Daimy?’s Retinue, which gives new options for cavalry in the game. Rounding things off, to help keep everything straight, there's new sets of tokens, as well as some scenery pieces.
I've always been a fan of a good map campaign for a game. It adds a whole other layer to things. What territories do you want to attack? Which can you lose? Where do you want your forces to go? Well, Warlord Games has come out with a set of map campaign rules for Test of Honour, their new samurai skirmish game.
Gamers love to be the first ones with the new items available for the games they play. Heck, they can get outright hostile if someone else gets their toy soldiers first. As such, Warlord Games is offering pre-orders on the first wave of expansion sets for Test of Honour, their far-Eastern skirmish miniatures game. So get your orders in now and get them as soon as possible.
When writing rules for a game, you want to do your best to make sure they're clear and uncomplicated. Sometimes, a part of a rule sounds good, and you don't necessarily want to cut it, but you find that it's just not quite in the theme or style you want for the game. That's not to say they're necessarily bad. They're just not quite what the overall game needs in the main rulebook. They're the "deleted scenes" of the game. Well, Warlord Games has posted up these rules on their website for you to check out and possibly add to the game if you and your opponent want.
Warlord Games is wasting no time in getting you another release for Test of Honour. This time around, it's a two-player starter box set. If you've been looking at the Wave 1 releases and been thinking, "I wish it was all just in one box for me to pick up so I could have two forces with which I would teach my friends." you're in luck.
Warlord Games continues taking pre-release orders for Test of Honour over in their webshop. I'm sure some of you have already put your order in. For those that might still be holding out, Warlord has posted up a preview of the pair of exclusive minis you get when you do make a pre-order.
Warlord Games is still taking pre-orders for Test of Honour, their new far-East-inspired miniatures skirmish game. But I know some of you out there aren't content with just what comes in the first couple sets. You want more. Well, Warlord Games is showing off what those next expansion sets will be.
Warlord Games certainly wastes no time when it comes to telling you about a game to letting you get your hands on it. Though we're not quite to "have it on your tabletop" just yet, they have started taking pre-orders for different kits, from full rules and figures, to just some extras. Check it out.
So, by now there's a good chance you've taken a look over the Test of Honour rules preview that Warlord Games has posted up. You might have some questions about the designer's choices that they made in those rules, or wonder what might be coming up next. Well, Warlord Games is here to help with a look at the designer's notes for the game.
Well, Test of Honour, the new far-East themed miniatures skirmish game from Warlord Games got quite a response when it was announced. I know a lot of people are interested to see what the rules look like. Well, you didn't have to wait long, and your wallets don't have to take a hit. Warlord Games has posted up a starter rules set for free over on their website.
Warlord Games has many fine games on the market. If you're a fan of ancient historicals, there's Hail Caesar. If you like a more Napoleonic feel, there's Black Powder. You've got Pike & Shotte in there. Of course, you can't forget WWII in Bolt Action. Though most of that has a rather Western-civilization angle on it. How about those with Eastern-civ in mind? Well, for you, there's Test of Honour.
