Nopat Club’s traditional summer weekend: Bolt action!

Pasific Theatre Campaign Day 

A great tradition of gentlemanly summer weekend with wargaming, good friends, cold drinks, fat cigars and hot sauna has been established at our club. You can find blurry accounts of previous sessions in my blog.



This time we decided to run a kind of team tournament with a Pasific team.
Concept is based on the campaign day event pack  by Downorder.com - thanks for sharing!

Three player Zen Saga!

Battle & murder at the monastery


This months Saga Game Night was about fan made battle boards. I had recently discovered and played Fantastic Saga pitting my Greek Hoplites (and Ares) against Jaakko's Undead, but for this evening I wanted to "re-enact" my experience from Hamburger Tactica (2014), where Patrick & co. from Kurpfalz Feldherren were running the same scenario with the best looking games table, I had ever seen (until I saw more tables from them next year!).

Back to Mythic Pantheon

Clash of father and son


Instead of continuing with the New Guinea Bolt Action campaign, Herkko and me decided to come to Mythic Battle Pantheon. It was time to move forward from the intro game and try out the full rules.

Status report from the painting desk



Is this satisfactory?



As I finished 600+ miniatures last year, it seems I'm badly behind this year. Well as always (even if I'm getting better!) I also have some 50+ minis, that have been on my paint desk and are almost finished. In this blogpost you can see what are the minis behind these numbers.  So far this year my gaming has focused on Saga, Bolt Action, Warhammer Fantasy Battle (8th ed.) and then some. Star Wars Legion is on the rise. This obviously shows in my painting as I'm always painting for the next game. Samurai -theme is also showing.

Pagan Rus / Eastern Princes for Saga Age of the Wold Campaign

From the Frozen Steppes they come

As another Saga campaign started I finally got around to paint more Rus / Medieval Russian minis I had acquired through the last five years from Grippingbeast, FireForge, Old Glory and Magister Militarium, to name a few sources ;-)

Salute 2018

My first time

I've been to Hamburger Tactica three times (it's a great show) and ones to Warfare, but 
so far had dodged visiting Salute, possibly because the image I had in mind about it: rushed and crowded shopping event, where one can't join in on games (something I've really enjoyed in Tactica). Now I was part of  Dalauppror's international team making a display game of a Great Northern War: Battle of Stäket 1719 (there will be a separate blog post on this project). This motivated me to go and simultaneously my wife and one of my three daughters came to see the marvels of London. 
How convenient!

First go with the Rising Sun by CMON



Happy victims of another CMON kick starter gathered

...to try out recently arrived Rising Sun boardgame. Read on how it went and how did we like it.



4 of us from the Nopat & Taktiikka Club had participated in the kick starter and most of us had already gotten the game (not me as I was late with my payment for the delivery :-( ). So we were more than eager to give it a go. Marko also joined us as one of us had to cancel.
