The End Of The Road, For This Year Part 4……………

Posted: December 31, 2015 in Aliens, All Quiet On The Martian Front, Conan, Deadzone, Incursion, Judge Dredd, Kickstarters, Shadows Of Brimstone, Terminator, Zombicide

This year has had its ups and downs. I started the year pushing All Quite On The Martian Front at my local game store, which lead to them picking up some of the range. This lead to a small group of players gaming every few weeks in the local store.

February/March: brought not one but TWO kickstarter pledges in the form of Tablescapes Tiles and Zombicide Season 3 (which was the most viewed post of the year!)

April/May: Saw me working on my Imperial Knights and Skitarii as well as some Cites Of Death terrain for 40K

June: Saw the arrival of another kickstarter pledge in the form of  Incursion from Grind House Games. Also released was the Terminator Genisys game from River Horse.

July: Saw the arrival of AvP: The Hunt Begins board game from Prodos Games.

August: Saw a group of us start to play Shadows of Brimstone, as well as the redecorating of my gaming/dinning room.

September: Saw me give Judge Dredd ago (again).

October/November: Saw me playing Terminator: Genisys and Shadows Of Brimstone.

December: has been rather quite on the gaming front.

Kickstarter wise I have backed the year

Conan: From Monolith Games.

Blood Rage and Zombicide Black Plague: From CMON.

Deadzone: Infestation and Warpath : From Mantic Games.

Drop Fleet Commander: From Hawk Wargames.

Of these only Blood Rage has shipped completely, while the base set of Zombicide has also been shipped (with the rest due sometime in February).

From last years list their are still 3 outstanding.

AvP: From Prodos Games, hopefully 95% will be finished by the end of February

Shadows Of Brimstone: From Flying Frog Games, will hopefully be finished by the end of the year. I have taken up the 1.5 wave shipping.

All Quite On The Martian Front: From Alien Dungeon, looks to be dead in the water with the company going bust!

Movie wise I have only seen one film this year and that was Terminator: Genisys, which while not as good as T1 and T2 did serve as a good “reboot”. It was however strange not going to see a film over the Xmas period but their was not much that I wanted to see (I can wait for Star Wars to be released on Blu-Ray).

All in all its been a year of ups and downs, I have played some good games Terminator: Genisys, Shadows Of Brimstone, and to a certain extent AvP (it has its problems) as well as losing interest in some!
