5 on Friday

It’s Friday, and here on No Rerolls that means it’s time for a little digest of some of our favourite articles from the past week.  Of course, we’re slow readers, so don’t be surprised if there are some articles that are a little older – these are just some of the great articles we happen to have actually read in the past week.

They are in no particular order, so let’s get into some recommendations:

Not Your Grandad’s Monopoly @ Seven Layer Tabletop – A review of Monopoly Gamer.  I share some opinions with the author, in that I agree that it’s a much better game than the original Monopoly with the player characters being the big highlight.  I don’t quite share the author’s utter enthusiasm for the game, as it’s ultimately still Monopoly, albeit an improved and streamlined version.  A good review with lots of cool pictures.

Brushwork – Tuesday 9th January @ 2Screens – This article has lots of cool pictures of the author’s PanOceania models for Infinity.  The author has done a good job creating a clean, tidy white-grey scheme that is quite striking.  The flashes of blue and red stand out really well against the otherwise greyscale design.  Corvus Belli produce fantastic models and the author has really done them justice!

Eight Games of Eighth, and other thoughts @ Spalanz – One gamer’s musings on the latest edition of Warhammer 40,000.  The article begins with some thoughts about the rate of codex releases before looking at the performance of the author’s Dark Eldar army.  I’ve not played the new edition yet, but I could give it a spin with the Tzeentch Daemons I painted last year for Age of Sigmar.  The article itself is interspersed with pictures of the author’s army.  Always interesting to read another person’s thoughts on army comp.

6 of My Favorite Board Games @ Stim the Line – Of the author’s 6 favourite games, I’ve played the first three.  I love the first two but am more conflicted on the third.  The fourth game on the list is another that I own, but have yet to play.  The other two I’ve never played.  Good article, and it’s always nice to read lovely positive posts about the games that people love.

Refinery and Pipeline Terrain @ Dice Be Damned! – The homemade terrain in this article is really simple but very effective.  There’s so much that we can make for this hobby with some basic supply from a hardware or craft store.  Once the parts were gathered, it didn’t seem that there was much modelling work to be done and the required painting was also pretty minimal.  Good stuff!

On No Rerolls, we’ve taken a look at Modiphius and their recent introduction of new introductory PDFs for their various RPG titles.  I’ve also been doing a little painting.

See you next week.
