Category Archives: Confrontation

Every ending must have a start.

My resolution to paint (reduce) my pile of miniatures didn’t seem too daunting until I actually started looking at some numbers. I thought it might be wise to know what lies ahead and so took a tally of the stuff in my room.

This is just the stuff I have to hand and doesn’t include anything back at my old home in the loft and I have focused on games that I currently play or plan to relaunch during 2014.

  • Batman Miniatures Game – 4
  • Confrontation – 24
  • Relics – 25
  • Infinity – 22
  • Hordes – 11
  • Warmachine – 86
  • Flames of War – 14 Bases of Infantry, 2 AT Guns, 2 Jeeps
  • Warhammer Fantasy – An entire Vampire Counts Army – I couldn’t be bothered counting
  • Warhammer 40k – 7 Marines, Necron Battleforce, Necron Lord, 3 Tomb Blades
  • Malifaux – 12
  • Dystopian Wars – 59
  • Dreadball – 4

I think given we are currently playing Dreadball and Batman that these will be my focus (plus they have low model count).

Keep watching for news on how it goes.

Confrontation – From the ashes

I am not sure how many people reading this will have played Confrontation but the recent releases from Legacy Miniatures and the news that wave 2 will contain an old favourite – the Mid-Nor Cyclops – has led me to try and hunt down some minis and rekindle my love of this game.

Amazingly there are still some places selling the old Rackham metals at sensible prices and there are some ebay auctions that go for stupid money. My belonging to the UK-Cord has enabled me to get a few pieces from fellow members who want players and not stupid profit (for the most part anyway).

I managed to pick the books up from Maelstrom for 99p each, Confrontation 3 and the Dogs of War extension, a kind of Mordheim type game, although there are various sites hosting pdf versions of the books.

I will probably try and use here to track my progress with this project so remember to subscribe to my blog or add me to your RSS feed reader.
