Wargames - Playing Deadzone on Games Day Budapest 2016 - Gameplay narrative Playing Deadzone Ed2 on Games Day Budapest 2016 - Imperial Space Gameplay narrative

Article updated: 2016.12.29

On the Games Day Budapest 2016 I was invited by Nagy Péter (Petrow) to play a game of Deadzone Ed2 with him. Even though we have played a Deadzone game, to continue the story that started in the previous Afterlife gameplay narrative, I will include elements of the Forlorn Stars (Imperial Space) setting. I try to recount the events that occured on that day.

Wargames - Warhammer 40,000 Ed8 - Unit types and model suggestions

The Warhammer 40,000 Ed8 system has Warhammer 40,000 Ed8 miniatures produced by Games Workshop for almost every unit type in the rulebook. However, there are several miniatures that could be used as good substitues, if you don't have access to the original, or if you'd like some variety in your collection of miniatures.

I've gathered my recommendations about running demonstration games for the Deadzone boardgame / wargame from Mantic Games.

Before you read further, I recommend you to read: Running game demos - Guidelines
