Super Dungeon Explore!

With my new found obsession with Super Dungeon Explore I love to see what people are doing with the miniatures. So when I found the Super Dungeon Explore boards made by Tyson Koch of FigurePainters.com I was just blown away. These boards look fantastic and they really give off the feeling of a great dungeon crawl.

As I usually do when I find something that inspires me, I contacted Tyson for an interview. Read on for the full interview, and don’t forget to check out his site for more pictures of not only the Super Dungeon Explore board but tons of other amazing works as well!

Review: Super Dungeon Explore

Posted in Board Games, Reviews on January 5th, 2012 by Svenn
Super Dungeon Explore

Super Dungeon Explore!

In addition to the card games that I have reviewed recently I have also been playing several board games. Among these is Super Dungeon Explore from Soda Pop Miniatures, which crosses the board game boundaries and heads straight into miniatures territory with a cute chibi anime style.

Super Dungeon Explore is a hack and slash board game that can be played with anywhere from 2-6 players. One player plays the Consul, the evil overlord who spawns and controls the monsters, while the other plays are the Heroes (a player can control 1 or multiple heroes depending on the game size and number of players). The entire game is played on a set of modular tiles and uses a whole lot of miniatures. Read more »

Long Distance Gaming

Posted in How-To on December 12th, 2011 by Svenn

Since I moved a couple of years ago I have not been able to play as many tabletop games as I would like. This is in part due to being too far from the people I used to play with. After picking up Warhammer: Invasion (check out my review), Tewfik and I decided to try something a bit different, playing over the internet. There are various programs out there for playing tabletop games over the internet, and specifically a couple for card games (OCTGN and LackeyCCG), but we had just purchased these new cards and I personally feel like it’s a better experience when you can physically shuffle a deck and hold a hand of cards rather than see it on a computer screen.

Warhammer: Invasion Living Card Game Review

Posted in Reviews on November 2nd, 2011 by Svenn
Warhammer: Invasion

Warhammer: Invasion

Living Card Games are starting to become a much larger part of my tabletop gaming these days. It started when I discovered The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. This time up I will be tackling a different LCG, Warhammer: Invasion. While The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a cooperative LCG in which players compete against a randomized quest and encounter deck, Warhammer: Invasion is a classic competitive card game pitting 2 players against each other.

Server Move Issues and Upcoming Previews

Posted in Site News on August 23rd, 2011 by Svenn

There was an error with a server migration by our host yesterday that caused some issues with the site. This issue caused the site to appear as if it had rolled back an entire year. This meant that any new content posted on the main page was missing, the downloads pages were old versions, many user galleries were missing, and the site may not have recognized your login info. Unfortunately, this also means that if you logged in yesterday within that period and saved a roster or uploaded photos to your gallery they were not saved to the current version of the site.

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Review

Posted in Reviews on June 29th, 2011 by Svenn

Lord of the Rings LCG Core Set

We generally focus on miniatures games here at Tabletop Geeks, but that is not all we play. Just recently I stumbled upon the Living Card Games (LCG) from Fantasy Flight Games. Being a huge Lord of the Rings fan I had to pick up the Lord of the Rings: The Card Game LCG to try it out. So far I am absolutely loving this game.

If you are not familiar with Living Card Games they are similar to a Collectible Card Game (CCG) in many ways with one really large difference, you are not going to go broke collecting cards. This was really the first thing that drew me to this game. Ever since I gave up on collecting Magic: The Gathering cards many years ago I have been wanting something that could bring the same enjoyment without forcing me to spend thousands of dollars to get the good cards. With a Living Card Game you simply buy a set that includes ALL of the cards for that set, all at a very reasonable price. Read more »

A New Painting Guide and What’s Coming Soon

Posted in Site News on June 17th, 2011 by Svenn

Sigur of Battle Brush Studios, that crazy squirrel that brought you several painting guides on Tabletop Geeks earlier this year, is at it again! This time he’s put together a step-by-step painting guide for a Space Wolves Wolf Guard Battle Leader. This new painting guide turned out pretty awesome, just as with the previous guides. The guide comes complete with plenty of pictures of each step along the way, along with a description of how everything was done. I highly recommend checking out Sigur’s galleries as well as keeping an eye on his Tabletop Geeks page for any updates.

Rules Manual Cover

Rules Manual!

I probably should have posted this sooner but there have been several Malifaux updates recently. First of all, for those who might not have heard the Malifaux Rules Manual and Malifaux Gaining Ground (Tournament) files have been posted up. These are available on Wyrd’s website and are also linked in our Malifaux Downloads page. These are both available as completely free pdf documents. The Rules Manual includes updated rules with better examples that should help clarify things a bit more. The Gaining Ground document offers up full rules and information on running a Malifaux tournament.

Interview: doobrady (Jon Law)

Posted in Interviews on March 8th, 2011 by Svenn

I happened across a very interesting tabletop gallery the other day. It really caught my attention as it went above and beyond simple painting and terrain techniques to create an amazing looking atmosphere that really gave me a sense of immersion that I had not felt with tabletop gaming before. This was Jon Law’s Atmospheric Wargaming gallery. Through the use of smoke effects and localized lighting he was able to create some amazing looking scenes.

I have been intrigued by the idea of using non-conventional means and methods of expanding a wargaming table for a while now. However, until now I’ve never seen it used in this capacity with a full table. I was just blown away by the whole thing. As is usual when I find something so great, I secured an interview with the man behind it so read on to find out more!

Dungeons and Dragons

Posted in Battle Report, Site News on February 21st, 2011 by Svenn

I have not had the chance to do a lot of tabletop gaming recently, but I did recently started a Dungeons and Dragons campaign with a group of friends. We’re only about level 5 now so we’re really just getting started. One of the guys in the group has decided to do a write-up every week about the campaign so I thought I would share those here.
