S02E13 - Coverage of Michicon 2008!

To be fair, I lied again last week. There is no review of Warmachine this time around. The Michicon 2008 confrence came up in the mean time.

Anyway, Michicon 2008 is hosted by the Metro Detroit Gamers and is held on the campus of Oakland University in Auburn Hills Michigan. I want to thank MDG for inviting us up to the confrence and allowing us to take a bunch of pictures and video. In this episode we get to talk with a number of game masters and get introduced to a number of games we have never played before. Therefore, the layout of the show is as follows:

~0:00 - Intro to Michicon and its history
~7:00 - Thud by Tri Tac Games - Fast playing miniatures
~12:30 - Fire and Fury - American Civil War
~20:00 - Clear for Action - World War II Naval Combat
~27:30 - Canvas Eagles - World War I Air Combat
~35:30 - Manchurian Mandate - Near Future Tank Combat
~38:30 - The Guild House - A traveling convention store

Just the Facts....Unless I'm Wrong.....Which I Could Be....

Last Weekend our local GW store got the 5th edition rules in for Warhammer 40K!. After Two Games(Going 1-0-1) I have pretty good handle on what has changed in the new edition of GW's Flagship Game. Therefore, I address a number of the rumors I came across on the Internet and determine just how accurate each of them really are.

2)Do you care if a game maintains the laws of physics for the particular universe it exists in - why or why not?

Heroscape: 9 out of 10 - Awesome Figures, Excellent Board Design, Simple Rules, Lots of Unit Variety, Annoying Clean Up, Lack of Unit Customization
Star Wars Miniatures: 5 out of 10 - Game result seems to be determined by who gets LOS and rolls the highest value first.
Babylon 5: 8 out of 10 - Best figures ever, Simple but diverse damage modeling, Has all the races from the show, Fairly simple rules though ship movement is slightly more complex then typical miniature games.

Links for the Scenario Rules
The Canyon Scenario

In the mean time, here are the quick rules for the Hill Scenario:
Attacker has 900 Points and the Defender has 600 Points.
The Board size is 48" by 48". The Defender's deployment zone is about 2 Square feet of Elevated Terrain. The Attacker has a standard deployment zone on the opposite side of the board.
The objective for the attacker is to take the hill. When time expires count VC2 points for the units in the Defender's deployment zone(The Elevated Terrain) The player with the most points wins the scenario.
Time Limit: The Attacker has 20 minutes to complete their objective. The Defender has no time limit.

Episode 3 of the Tabletop Battlefield - Warhammer 40K Patrol Armies.

I'm still in the testing phase of The Battlefield and this episode came out a little shorter then the ideal 40 minutes.(Its about 23). I am joined by Graham. to discuss how to get into the World of Warhammer 40K without spending a lot of money, your first born child, or several important body parts. The answer is 400 Point Patrol Armies. I introduce two armies, one for the Tyranids, and one for the Tau. Both of these are based on the battlion boxed sets. Graham covers his 400 point Eldar army.

Here are some of the links mentioned

Any questions for myself(Jason) can be directed to and Graham can be reached at

Season 01 Episode 01 - The Future of Mechwarrior

Jan 08 2007

Download File: [MP3] [MP4] [WMV]


See how this show got started with myself, Kyle, a Camera, and some Mechwarrior Figures.

Today we are talking about Mechwarrior Dark Age by Wizkids. First we discuss some of the coming changes to the game. In addtion, we discuss some house rules that we have used when playing games of Mechwarrior. To conclude we take a quick look at the Mechwarrior Short Film.

This show features Jason Rutherford and Kyle Menzies

I have listed some of our house rules below:
  • When a unit is given an order, it may move and make a standard attack or it may make a special attack.
  • A standard attack is a Ranged Attack or Close Combat Attack
  • A special attack is a Charge,Ram,DFA, or Artillery attack.
  • Infantry and Vehciles are considered pushed when they have three order tokens on them. A unit can be given an order if it results in giving the unit more then three tokens.
  • Every time a infantry or vehicle moves or attacks, it recieves an order token. An artilley attack gives a unit two order tokens.
  • Mechs never generate heat or recieve a token when walking. All other actions give heat and tokens as normal.
  • Mechs can either make two ranged attacks or one ranged and one close combat attack in one turn.
  • When making an artilley attack, subtract two from the attack value of the unit and add 1d6 inches to the drift of the token, unless the artilley unit has a LOS to the token, or a spotter has LOS to the token/
  • Any infantry can spot for a token within 14". This action does not count as an order, but the spotter cannot perform any actions while spotting.

If you have any questions or comments, get a hold of me at
