What do you need to do to get a game of Epic in NZ?

What do you need to do to get a game of Epic in NZ? I have enough units of Space Marines, Imperial Guard, Eldar and Orcs to field about 3000 points of each. But when there are only two other players listed in the country, what can be done to get a quick game, when time is short?  I have been thinking about getting some of my friends involved, maybe a free beer or two and a free pick up and drop off would be enough to encourage them to give Epic a go? If anyone has any ideas on...

Help the MiniWars Admin

Shameless call for help, here. It's nothing to do with wargames, but since I'm the MiniWars admin, I'm allowed this one breach of conduct!

The Indestructible Terrain Project (6mm scale)

This is an ongoing project that has recently advanced due to the recent re-emergence of some excellent 6mm roads and bridges. Terrain... Most gamers' idea of perfect terrain is something as realistic as possible. Though I agree realistic terrain can look awesome, I have three problems with it. First, it can be unclear as to what terrain you're actually in, second, it's bulky and difficult to transport, and third, it takes bloody ages to create. And for someone (like me) who finds it difficult to find the time to work on models, spending hours creating terrain is not...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Praise the machine spirit

When I think about Space Marines in battle there's always a Land Raider involved, so after painting one as a colour sample at the start of my ultramarine army endeavor there were still three spots in that formation that needed filling. Before going to Attriticon (I'll write a few words about that Con in a later post, in short: it was great) I wanted to complete this formation. I got some metal Mark IIb Land Raider Phobos from ebay, not that I don't have loads of the plastic Proteus Pattern ones, but I thought a bit of...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Dispatching Terminators

A Space Marine force without a unit of Terminators would be missing something. I have long been looking for some decent Terminator scuplts until I finally found somebody who made these really cool Terminators. They are amazing, they look just like their big brothers: Stormshield, Poweraxe, Stormbolter and so forth, really cool. Side by side shot: Size comparisson shot:

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Approaching Attriticon

So just a quick post to show you what I still want to finish before I head off to the Attriticon in Ulm in two weeks. Together with a friend I'll be demoing Epic there. According to my email inbox the playing mat that I ordered from the Kraken Mat KS will have arrived when I get home today, so we'll have something to play on. I'm also working on some ruins to have something to put onto the mat, but I haven't taken a photo, yet. A few Terminators are waiting for the finishing...

Adeptus Titanicus: The Horus Heresy (2017)

Back in May 2015, Millest posted a picture of a tiny Warlord Titan at Warhammer World. The rep said it was just a test print, offering no further information about it, but we know how GW works, right? They love to feed the rumour mill and get people debating what they may or may not do. However, there wasn't a great deal of buzz in the Epic community due to distrust in GW and their handling of Specialist Games, and the high level of autonomy the community enjoys. This maybe about to change, as since confirming Specialist Games are returning...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Reinforcements are on their way, Commander!

Do you know that feeling, when you've been painting a lot of minis for one system and you feel your painting motivation dwindle away? I shelled out about 500 points worth of Batman miniatures and about the same amount of Freebooter's Fate Miniatures in the last months. That might not be much, but then again I don't have much time for this great hobby and skirmisher miniatures take up quite some time to get painted. So my Riddler Crew for Batman now is finished, well almost I still need to finish painting the Riddler Mech and then there'...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Barrage at Delta-Niner-Echo confirmed

So it was about time I got my hands and especially brushes back on some 6mm glory. Most of my absence from 6mm painting was owed to some new hobby-crack that I got into, the Batman Miniatures Game (BMG) (more about that at another time). Painting in 6mm really is something different than painting 28mm (or 35mm which is the BMG) Scale, it was great getting back to these tiny machines. In every army there are different roles that need to be fulfilled, there's the scout that blocks enemy movement and gets quickly where he needs to be, there'...
