Warmaster Spring-2012 Tournament AAR

LSHM-San Antonio held a one-day Warmaster Fantasy Battles Tournament at Dragon's Lair on Saturday, March 24th. We had four participants and several bystanders watching with rapt attention.

The participants included: Mark R (Dark Elves), Dave (Chaos), Jake (High Elves w/Dragon), and Mark L (High Elves w/Cavalry).

The tournament lasted two rounds with Mark R. defeating Jake's High Elves and Dave's Horde's of Chaos to take the Championship award.

Warmaster is an older game but many players have fond memories of it. LSHM-San Antonio plans to hold more Warmaster events so dust off those old armies. We would be happy to see you at the next event.

  1. Man, I wish they would reprint or at least sell a pdf of the ancients rules.

    In the meantime, keep posting reports.

    1. Yes, I feel fortunate to have found a local hobby shop that had a copy of the Ancients rules. I think it is available at Amazon but the going price is ridiculous!

Star Trek Miniatures Games

This past weekend, I had a game of Starmada with my friend Ken. He and I have been long time Trekkies. We both wanted to try a Star Trek miniatures battle. Ken even purchased the 10-pound grab bag of Starfleet 2400 miniatures from Amarillo Design Bureau. I have been gathering some plastic minis from bargain bins at local game stores and I borrowed a set of metal Starfleet minis from another friend. Between the two of us, we had enough figs to setup a reasonable sized skirmish battle.

I attempted a game of Starmada before with Desert Scribe (some photos are here). We were both unfamiliar with the rules and struggled with some the details. In my recent game, Ken and I did much better but there we still made a few mistakes in game play. Ken played the Federation faction with a 1x Command Cruiser, 1x Heavy Cruiser, and 1x Frigate.  I took the Klingon faction with 1x D7C command cruiser, 1x D6 cruiser, and 1x F5 Frigate.

The game took three hours to complete despite the fact the results we…

Battleship Texas and Monte Cassino

Earlier this month, my brother and I attended the Texas Broadsides! mini-convention. What makes this event unique? Unlike other events that take place in a hotel or meeting space, this convention happens on board the battleship U.S.S. Texas!

A little primer about the U.S.S. Texas (BB-35). It's a US Navy battleship that has seen service in the "Tampico Incident" and both World Wars. It is one of the oldest battleships remaining in the world. It was first launched on 18 May 1912. It was first installed with coal-fired boilers and was converted to oil-fired boilers sometime between the World Wars. It was also the first US battleship to have anti-aircraft guns installed. Rather than retell the ship's remarkably long service record, I'll just direct you to the Wikipedia page at for more details.

Currently, the ship is moored at the San Jacinto State Historical site and is open to the public as a museum. Most of the lowe…

Spring Catchup Post

The months of February through April are the hardest months for me to make new blog posts.  I really don't know what causes this drought yet is seems very cyclical.

Despite the lack of posts, there has not been a shortage of games being played.  So, rather than trying to write AAR's for all the games played over the past few months, I'll just post up some photos of the most recent game sessions.  I did participate in a Lord  of the Rings SBG 'Doubles' tournament which deserves it's own post and AAR.  For now here is a montage of the latest battles.
