Malifaux – Gentlemen’s Game

Malifaux is sticking in my head for quite some time now (along with few other games, obviously). While most of my hobby life turns around Games Workshop products, I assumed, it’s nice to diversify and get in few skirmish games as well. Malifaux seemed to me as one of most natural choices – it expands rapidly in Warsaw and generally in Poland. Many veteran gamers gave up their hope on ‘good old’ Games Workshop and picked up Malifaux. …and I’ve been watching Malifaux for over a year now, started collecting around June 2015, painted first Master with the crew (Lilith) in September 2015 and finally had my first, introduction game also in September 2015. Later, I had a break due of my journey across the Asia. And actually I was pretty close to play Malifaux while visiting Jakarta in December 2015, but it was rather busy time for me so whole idea for it failed… …but on the plus side I managed to paint Pandora and her crew, and now I have two Neverborn Masters …

Welcome to The Old World – Warhammer Fantasy Tournament

As general rule I don’t participate in tournaments. I am little¬† bit fed up of the idea of winning the game at any cost. The same army list as cheesy as possible, everything must work out like in the most precise clock. I had to win no matter what. ‘Victory is life’ as Jem’Hadar used to say. Yeah, it was pretty important. I stopped to take part in tournaments, around 6th editions of WHFB, as I got little bit bored with playing the same armies, same models, using same list all over again. Thanks, but no thanks. Not any more. I took a break. I needed quite few year to change my approach to any of miniatures games. I realised that victory is not the most important factor (sorry, Jam’hadar…). Having fun is. And by having fun I mean, painting my entire army, telling the story and playing different army lists with wide diversification of models. And, believe me I never been so happy with the hobby as I am now. I paint my minis, …

Visit in Wargamer, local shop here in Warsaw, Poland

As I’m going to be in Warsaw for a while and at least until October no worldwide travelling is planned, I had that thought – the moment has come to write few words about local community here in Warsaw. For the last few weeks I visited few of the stores in the area – and honestly I was confused… In Warsaw there are plenty of wargaming hobby stores, all scattered around the city. I had opportunity to check only few of them and one conclusion came to my head – Games Workshop almost completely monopolized local market (like whole world:).¬† All stores in the neighbourhood I live, specialize in Warhammer Fantasy Battle and Warhammer 40k. Plus some board and card games and that’s it. In general, I don’t have problem with that. Warhammer fluff is amazing and it’s good folks are into it, but after the visits in some awesome stores in for example Madrid or Prague, when diversity of miniatures offer is stunning – I started to regret there is nothing like that here …
