Warzone Resurrection the basics



I have had a few people ask me to give a very basic rundown of Warzone Resurrection when it comes to table size, model count, game play and cost. So here is the quick rundown.

Warzone Resurrection is typically played on a 4x4 table but has rules to expand it to a 6x4 for large games. Armies can contain as few as 12 models up to 30 models, it seems that 1k points is becoming the standard game level, but some people are pushing that lately up to 1250pts which I personally think is the sweet spot for WZR.

The rules and army lists are available for free on the website, so you do not have to rush out and buy them right away unless you are dieing to know the fluff right out of the gate. So you can literally start playing for around 75 USD that will get you a faction starter and a set of Warzone templates.

Warzone uses a unique resource mechanic to be able to activate special skills or give models extra actions. It really causes you to think about their expenditure. There is also an advanced version of the game that introduces a card deck that each player can build. This allows for new tactics and strategies; adding special Wargear to units, or special skills or the ability to effect the whole battle field with things like a Solar Eclipse that shortens all LOS or an Earth Quake that effects all movement and many more table wide effects.

The game uses an alternating activation system; so you activate a unit do the models actions then you opponent does the same until all units have been activated. The game is D20 based so you have a wider variety to work with for skill numbers.   

Bottom line is Warzone Resurrection is inexpensive to jump into compared to many other major games and has some really dynamic game play that will keep you interested. 

Until next time keep your powder dry and lead flying!

What I have been up to



I have been working my new job with Prodos Games for a few months now and have been busy as heck. Prodos Games are the people who brought back Warzone and late this fall Aliens verses Predator the boardgame and wargame. It is like a dream come true to work for a company that is making two sci-fi settings that I adore as miniatures games.

I am their US Marketing and Sales Manager, things are finally starting to roll and the first five shops should have product shortly. I am working on many others as I type this. Additionally I get to help write rules and do the groovy behind the scenes stuff as well!

So as you can imagine my gaming and hobby time is filled with Warzone Resurrection. This past weekend I attended the Bay Area Open and ran Warzone demos all weekend, it was a total blast! I even made a few new shop contacts for stocking Warzone, so this was a bonus to a great two days of demoing. Here are a few pics from the weekend:










Now on to things 40k, I still love the 40k universe and will still be playing on occasion but as you can imagine the new job will keep me busy. 40k Killzone is dead until I have the time to write a make your own army list out of the codex set of stipulations, cause I just cannot make updates for every single codex.

30k Killzone will get an update and official PDF by October, I still need to order the latest HH book from Forgeworld. I can reasonably update it with only one book arriving every year. 

Finally I am going to try to post once a week from this point forward, more if I can.

Until next time keep your powder dry and lead flying!

January Warzone Painting challenge extended

Due to a comedy of events, I am extending the deadline for Januarys challenge. Next Wed the 19th will be the new deadline.

My camera has its shutter jammed for some reason and it is not in the shop being fixed. Plus if I am being honest I did not completely finish my pledge as well, since still I need to finish all my bases today.
