Impressions: Empress August Releases

Empress did a rather cool thing back in July and put out a list of things they planned to release. When I first saw it, I assumed we would see them dribbled out over a period of months. Empress instead dropped them all at once, leading to a rather exciting day watching the Empress Facebook … Continue reading Impressions: Empress August Releases

Battle Report: “Big Dave Must Die!” – Spectre Operations

Sometimes, pre-planning games don't always go according to plan.

On Thursday morning, it was now going to be a much smaller game. … Continue reading Battle Report: “Big Dave Must Die!” – Spectre Operations

Impressions: Spectre SF Technicals – Initial Thoughts

Earlier this year, I wrote a load of stuff covering Spectre's first vehicle release for the technical. In it, I commented about miniguns which was a stretch goal from the Kickstarter that was sadly missed, as well as the illusive "Tactical Technical". Well, it looks like it was merely being sneaky and it is now … Continue reading Impressions: Spectre SF Technicals – Initial Thoughts
