Gaming Collection at Boardgamegeek
Games Workshop games have been my passion
for years now and I will always enjoy
their products but I also have a huge
collection of board games and some of this space
will be dedicated to them. One of my
favorite game companies is Fantasy Flight and
their web site is worth checking out.
Games we have been playing lately:
Sep./04- Hero Quest has seen
a come back again and we are up to quest 11.
Mutant Chronicles is also out on
our gaming nights as is Dungeon and Dragons
the board game (still not available
in Can.) and Space Crusade.
Finally picked up Heroscape,
a must have for Hero Quest fans, cool minis
(already painted!) interlocking
terrain system, lots of scenarios.
(new) Anno 1503, Camelot Legends,
Tigris and Euphrates and Memoir 44.
Finally got War of the Ring,
a huge board game from Fantasy Flight, also
the expansion for a Game of Thrones
and a remake of a very popular
game, Titan: Arena. Look forward
to trying them all out soon.
Another game I have been
anticipating is Doom the Board game and
this is one game that is just packed
with cool stuff. Looks like a mix
of Hero Quest meets Space Hulk.
Mar./05 Twilight Imperium
3 has been getting tons of play time, a
fantastic game, again by Fantasy
June 3/05 : Ok I just have
to post this, Descent:Journeys in the Dark
will be the next Heroquest or close
to it, here are the rules online:
Sep.18/05 - The next great game from
Fantasy Flight will be World of Warcraft. They have the
web page up with full rules in PDF
file, definitely worth checking out:
All of the above games can be found on Boardgamegeek.com.
Check them out.
A great new game from the makers
of Confrontation is Hybrid which is
somewhat similar to Space Hulk and/or
Warhammer Quest. The minis are excellent
as are the game components and the
mechanics are unique.
A little history:
Christmas in 1991 I picked up a really cool looking game to play with my
Myles my son was 8 and my Daughter Shanda was
6. We all loved the game and really enjoyed
it's unique game system. Of course it was Hero
Quest, I was hooked immediately and there started
my gaming life. I then acquired Battle Masters
which was basically a very simple Warhammer
game and from there bought Warhammer 4th edition
and the rest is history. I also got into Advanced Hero
Quest which to this day I still consider one of
the best Fantasy games I ever played. Here in these pages
is the accomplishment of all the games and miniatures
I have collected over the years.
I have included a selection of images from
my ever expanding range of Games Workshop and other
miniatures. I have been playing and collecting
since 1992 and find it a very fulfilling activity.
I have met some great people and made some good
friends, especially at the events I run at the Sentry
Box. Above I have links to images of many different
armies and fleets and have included tactics
where I feel I may have something to offer. I
hope to have images and new rules posted
from fellow gamers and anyone wanting to add something
here please let me know.
Along with all
the posted images, I also own and still play, Gorkamorka, Spacehulk,
Talisman and the
Wargames series brought out a few years ago by
Jervis Johnson (Battle for Armaggedon, Horus Heresy
and Doom of the Eldar).
I would have to say that my favorite games
are, in order, Epic Armageddon, Warmaster, 40k and Warhammer.
My favorite armies are, in order, Eldar, Wood
Elves, Tyranids, Orcs, Orks(40k) and Skaven.
Favorite Boardgames : Heroquest,
Hybrid, Nautilis, War of the Ring, Twilight Imperium 3,
Starfarers of Catan, A Game of Thrones, Puerto
Rico,Warcraft, Caracasonne, Scarablords,
Runebound, Tigris and Euphrates, Starship Catan,
Any comments about my site, miniatures,
tactical advice or anything else please e-mail me and I'll be
sure to reply.
I would also like to
share my thoughts on gaming and this hobby in general. It's mainly to have
and get together with people for a social time
where you can share a mutual interest. Although I know
most of us have a competitive urge, this is best
kept light hearted because winning or loosing it's the
playing that counts and if you can keep the fun
in the game it will be something you can enjoy for a long time.
Happy gaming. Regards RK
Anyone interested in advise on painting,
conversions or terrain building please let me know and I will
add some of my own techniques that
I have learned over the years and where to obtain supplies and such.

All the latest news here
Some of my old favorite Empire models, no new rules for the War
wagon though. :(
I already got the ark and some characters. Had a couple of games, did ok
against a Blood Angels army but not so good in a mega battle vs.
the Orks (actually my own army used by my friends). I still like the new
Necrons and will get the Stalker and Voidblaes when they come out.
The new Ghorgon (Cygor) model and Jabberslythe are awesome and my Beastmen
will be getting these additions soon. Other then that the
New Year has started out with lots of gaming including Eclipse, Mage Knight
the Boardgame and many more new games.
Updated Feb.28/12 :Wow has it been that
long already, I am just not that good at keeping my updates going and even
my Blog died pretty quick although it's still up on the net. Anyways there
has been lots of new gaming goodness in my life, new games, new mini's,
playing lots and looking forward to more.
So what are newest additions to my collection, Boardgames first:
Dungeon Petz, Ora et Labora, Eclipse, Walnut Grove, Venture Forth,
Cuba de Santiago, Mage Knight Board game, Three Musketeers: the Queens
Pendant, Gosu:Kamakor, Target Earth, High Frontiers,
Flash Point, LotRings HeroClix, Mecanisburgo, Edge City, Peurto Rico
Anniversary Ed., Quicksand, Evo, Takenoko, Road to Canterbury,
Castelli, Days of Steam, Magestorm, Dungeon Run, Olympus, Pergamon, Industry,
Hogwarts: House Cup Challange and more. Played
most of them already just a few to still try out.
Miniatures: Infinity Combined Army starter, Noble Armada House Decados
Fleet, Ghorgon for my Beastmen army. Got lots of painting
to do and lots of playing as well.
Updated Apr.8/12 : Finally picked up some
of the new Tyranid kits, mainly one Tervigon and one Tyrannofex and they
are some fantastic models. Going topaint them soon but also working on
Infinity, Heldorado, finishing Dreadfleet and starting an Orge army for
our escelation league. Also lots of new games like, Black Gold, Rex,
Warriors and Traders and The Hobbit. Looks like it will be a fun and also
hopefully nice spring.
Updated May 30/12 : Many projects on the
go the main one being our Warhammer Campaign and I have decided to do the
Orges. Ever since they came
out I was interested in doing up an army but more so since the Thundertusk
and Mournfang Riders came out. So I've got 500+ points put
together and almost finished painted. I will add images on the Warhammer
page and keep it updated as the campaign progresses. I have also
been working on the Tervigon and Tyrranofex for the Tyranids, the Ghorgon
for the Beastmen, the Abaddon minis and many other projects.
New games, Sunrise City, Merchants of the Middle Ages, Last Will, Pandora:
Grim Cargo, Lords of Waterdeep and more, gaming life is good.
Updated July 8/12: Well the 100 years of
Stampede is on this week and we'll be heading out to see some events but
gaming in my world comes first (other
then family and friends) and the new 40K has got me excited about the game
again. We've played one game so far and I really enjoyed it but
I will need to change the way I construct my armies to utilize the new
rules best. I tried an infantry heavy Eldar army versus Bill Ramsey's vehicle
heavy army and it was a good learning experience. Looking forward to trying
out my other favorite 40K armies, Tyranids, Orks, Necrons, Tau,
Dark Eldar (plan on selling my old army after trying out the rules and
if I like the way they play will invest in the new figs) and Chaos. Been
playing lots of games and adding a few new titles like EDO, Lord of the
Rings: Nazgul and Empires of the Void.
Updated Aug.28/12: What a fantastic
summer in Calgary, hot and beautiful warm days and evenings, really have
enjoyed it. Still played lots of games and
really like the new 40K one of the best editions to date (sorry still not
2nd edition, some nostalgia there), have to try out the rest of the armies
with these rules, Tau, Necrons, Tyranids and Marines. Need to get my Eldar
finished and add some of the great new units for the Nercons.
Still picked up some new games recently although being a bit more picky
since the wave of new games just keeps coming, Descent 2nd Edition
(excellent), Alba Longa, Tournay, D-Day Dice, Libertalia, Sky Traders and
Updated Dec.6/12 : Wow it's been a while
since an update and lot's has happened since the summer. Our Warhammer
campaign is nearing 1,900 points and
my Orges now have a Thundertusk, Mournfang Riders and another unti of Leadbelchers.
I am also adding some more core troop as well and
then the Yetis, Sabertusks and some more characters. I have not added anything
to my 40K armies lately but there are certainly lots of mins I
would like to get. I did notice however that the Canadian prices for GW
product is quite rediculous and compared to the US prices unbelievable.
I really wanted to get the new Hobbit game but not at the cost, someof
the mini's are just outragous, sorry GW but I have to draw the line this
time. I have added a few games since August but still being quite picky
like Merchant of Venus, Mice and Mystics, Star Wars X- Wing, Mage
Wars, Seasons, Village, Vanuatu and many more. Well I guess that's all
for now I will try and get some images of the Orge minis I've done soon.
Updated Feb.2/13: So I have finally found
the time to take some pics and add them to the site. There are new images
on the Orge Kingdoms, Tombkings,
Orcs & Goblins pages and a Dreadfleet page since I have spent
the time on these amazing ships, too bad the game wasn't supported by GW
with expansions and such like Man O' War. But that is not the interest
with GW who I believe are just getting way to expensive especially for
Canadians. I recently sent them an email complaining and they've asked
me to call them so they can explain why we pay 20% to 25% more then
the US. Anyways I still love their product I just won't be getting as much
of it anymore unless it's a project like our WH Campaign. I have also
gone a bit board game crazy and added Tzolkin, Noblemen, Clash of Cultures,
Archipelago, Myrmes, Zombicide, Zong Shi, Santa Cruz, Helvetia,
Star Wars card and more to the collection. So lot's of games to play and
minis to paint as usual, life is good.
Updated June 21/13 : Sorry for the late
update but upgraded our PC and got Windows 8 which is quite different and
I couldn't run my html program so using my
laptop with XP. Many new things since February have been added to my collection
although I am trying to buy less and only games that have high
ratings such as Terra Mysitca, Bora Bora, Augustus, Ill Vecchio, Targi,
CO2, Exodus and Kickstarters like Dreadball, Sedition Wars, Ground
Floor, Guilds of Caldwallon and a few others I am still waiting for that
I have funded.
With regards to mini games I am very excited with the new Eldar, the Wraithknight
is an amazing model, looking forward to painting and using it
on the battlefield as well as the flyer. We are starting a 40K campaign
soon still not sure which army I will use in it, either the Eldar, Tau
the Tyranids. Try to have more updates soon, happy gaming and stay save.
Also as I write this Calgary is going through the worst flood ever, never
seen anything like this, fortunately we live on higher ground as do our
their families but the devistation is unbelievable, we pray for all those
Updated Sep.2/13: Well it's been a great
summer, weather was excellent and still is, didn't play as many games as
I would've liked but all the other activities surely
made up for it. Been playing more mini games, 40K, Infinity and Epic and
painting some miniatures over the last month. I will be attending Fallcon
this year last weekend of this month and helping run X-Wing and Infinity
with Bill Ramsey. I plan on selling a bunch of games as well to lighten
collection I have and get rid of ones I don't play. Looking forward to
the new Tyranids which apparently is the next army after the new Space
I have added more games but most were used or on sale and again being picky
that they are really good games and not just buying what ever new ones
have been released like Bruges, Bioshock, Pathfinder and Rialto.
January 12/14: Well the new year has started
off with some fantastic releases mainly the new Tyranid Codex with some
cool miniatures for the army as well. Not
sure yet about all the changes to the list, it shrunk with regards to the
items, biomorphs and Psychic spells that were previously available. Got
to try it
before I can just however I am happy with the points costs changes especially
the Carnifex. Also got a ton of new board games and some great ones
like Nations, Amerigo, Madeira, Viticulture, Euphoria, Battlelore 2nd edition,
Glass Road, Suburbia, Orge Deluxe, 12 Realms and Deadzone to name
but a few. Endless hours of excellent gaming can't ask for much more and
lots of mini's to paint as always. A little dissapointed with some of the
starters many are getting badly delayed like Xia, Kingdom Death, Torn Armor
and Moonga from Wallace. I've decided to stop backing anything since
I hate to wait so long for money I've invested. Well back to painting my
Battlelore 2nd Edition minis and Tyranid stuff that still needs to be finished.
June 16/14 :Wow it's been a long time
since I updated probably due to the old laptop and program I use for this
web site, eventually I will update and upgrade.
So what's new since the start of the year, quite a lot in the gaming world,
new 40K rules, new mini's for existing armies and many more board games
although I am holding off on adding to many new titles for now. I am not
doing as many kick starters just don't want to invest and wait for the
unless it's a realy good deal and the estimated delivery is within 6 months.
I have been working on soard gmome Epic armies, mainly Squauts and adding
existing armies like the Tyranids and Eldar. Deadzone has become somewhat
of favorite as well as Dreadball, along with Dust Tactics for which my
friend Dan has invested quite a lot into. For Board games there is Lewis
& Clark, Caverna, Legacy the Testament of Duke, Concordia, Coal Baron,
Ogre Deluxe Edition, biggest board game I own, Prosperity and Warhammer
Disk Wars awesome little game replacing the old Disk wars which I
played years ago. Well back to assembling, painting and playing.
