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:

Rodents Of Unusual Size – January @ Convert or Die – It’s always nice to see someone who loves the Skaven.  They really are the most fun of Warhammer armies.  It’s also always a brave move to post your earliest painted models, so I’ve got to applaud the author for that, too.  It’s always great to see how far people have come in their painting and I must say that the author’s Skaven army is just gorgeous.

Why We Play Infinity @ Straight Off the Tabletop – I’ve recently been playing a little of this game to learn the rules and am trying to get my head around it properly.  It’s made a good first impression and posts like this one further whet my appetite to play more.  It’s great to see the author’s enthusiasm for Infinity and I love all of the fantastic pictures that peppered throughout this post.  Great scenery, pal!

Ravensburger 3D Puzzle Review @ Freddies Mummy UK – This is not the sort of article I’d normally read, nor a blog I typically frequent, but the images caught my attention as I was flipping through articles.  I had an impression of these puzzles being a bit… cheaper looking.  If this is the sort of thing that Ravensburger are putting out, I might be tempted to take another look.  I’ve never much been into jigsaws, but yeah, this looks great.  Good article with loads of great pictures!

French Harbor Town – Part IX @ Herr Brush – We checked in on part 2 of this series back in early December and it’s really cool to see the progress the author has made since then on his gaming board.  It’s come together very well and I’m looking forward to seeing the final pictures once the last little details are sorted out.

Playing Forever with Charterstone @ Space-Biff! – A great, detailed, in-depth article about both Charterstone itself and the emerging legacy genre itself.  The author seems to have had a wide experience of legacy games and talks from significant knowledge.  I’ve got 2 legacy games sitting on my shelf that I really must take the plunge and start before I even think of buying Charterstone (which does look very good!).

On No Rerolls, we’ve been thinking about Games Workshop’s Shadow War: Armageddon and how the re-release of Necromunda has affected it.  Last weekend I played some Age of Sigmar: Skirmish and did a quick write-up.  I’ve also posted my weekly Hobby Update.

See you next week.

  1. Cheers for the shout out and thanks for the high praise for my Skaven army. I’m planning to keep adding to it throughout 2018 so there should be an update at the end of each month (although as with all Skaven schemes if I don’t succeed I’ll just blame an underling…)
