Two Hour Wargames


And we've made it back around to Monday. I had a nice, restful, relaxing weekend. Considering that Gen Con isn't all that far away, I need to get in as many of those as I can between now and then. We also can use to get your gaming tables looking good. So, let's do that.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Bugs: Into the Tunnels Available From Acheson Creations, New Infinity Terrain From TTCombat, and Wastelang Game Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

Just in time for the holidays, Rebel Minis and Two Hour Wargames has not just one, but two new sci-fi miniatures games for you. They're 5150 Platoon Leader and 5150 Battalion Commander. You can go pick up your copies now and spend your off-hours these next months getting your mini sci-fi battle groove on.

Bugs.
I mean, I realize they're a vital part of the ecological system and all, but I'd prefer if they didn't come invading into my apartment. However, as bad as seeing something scurry across your kitchen floor in the pale moonlight may be, it is nothing compared to the bugs one comes across in the depths of space. For those, you'd best get out your plasma rifle. I don't think a tennis shoe will suffice.
That's the type of thing you'll be fighting in 5150: Bugs: Into the Tunnels, a new minis game that's a team-up between Two Hour Wargames and Acheson Creations. The game's up on Kickstarter now.

Pillage! Plunder! Burn! That's the mantra of vikings. That's also what you'll be doing in Great Hall Burning, a new set of rules by 2 Hour Wargames for playing armies during the Viking Age (about the 8th century to the 11th, give or take a couple decades). The rules include a robust campaign system that lets you grow your Viking community and army over the course of multiple seasons of fighting.

2 Hour Wargames has created a new companion book to their 5150 Star Army - 2nd Tour game. It's 5150 Star Marine and it gives you the chance to play a skirmish game using the same rules. Make your way onto enemy ships during daring boarding actions, conduct raids on enemy camps planetside, and watch out for those aliens.

This morning I'm sitting here listening to 90s music. I mean, it's the music I listened to when I "discovered music." So why not? One of the things bands will often do is swap around members for a project or two. So you get combinations of some of your favorite musicians all in one band. That's sort of what is going on with the Red Ops 5: Asylum game over on Kickstarter now.
Discuss
Well, for a Mech-lover like myself, today's just a red-letter day, what with two mech-based games to talk about. This one comes to us from Two Hour Wargames and is called 5150 No Quarter. This one's pretty straight-forward. Just grab whatever mechs you want to use, however many you and your opponent want to use, and get ready to throw down.

Two Hour Wargames has quite a lot of products for quite a lot of diverse gaming tastes. Whether you want to play something historical, or with zombies, or sci-fi, or something fantasy, or basically whatever, they have something for you. The only problem with having such a large collection is some might feel intimidated by it, not knowing where to start and what to spend their money on. Well, for the rest of the month, Two Hour Wargames is having a 25% off sale.

From the post:

Today we return to the Windy Isles in the first part of the prelude to this years 'season' of Dreadloque adventures, the piratical version of Flintloque. In this, the first of a new series focusing on storyline in tandem with game mechanics, you will find an After Action Report of THW's 'And a Bottle of Rum' rules as well as a short piece of Flintloque fiction based on it.

Dreadloque and its sequels are set in Danny O'Hara's piratical take on Flintloque - Alternative Armies skirmish wargame set in an alternate Napoleonic war featuring fantasy races - but take place in their own part of that world called The Windy Isles. A place of high seas, pirates and treasure, far removed from the smoke hazed battlefields of the Mordredian Wars in Urop.

From the release:

By Savvy and Steel takes the player back to 17th Century Europe. Everyone's heard of the Three Musketeers and the Cardinal's Guard, and yes, By Savvy and Steel will work for that, but we've taken it a bit farther. How far? Glad you asked!

Instead of tying you into Paris of the Musketeers, we let you travel the countryside in a generic country called Edenstein. It's based on the Europe of the 17th Century, and it could be France or England if you want, but it doesn't have to be. You have the choice, it's your story!
