I love Judge Dredd. There, I’ve said it.
I fell in love when I was a young punk kid in the ’80s, and though my tastes have changed over the years I have never lost my love of Dredd. The characters, the world, and the writing are at once charming, hard-boiled, ridiculous, violent, prescient and loaded with black humour. Imagine my excitement when I learned of a new Judge Dredd Miniatures Game coming from Warlord Games, the folks who recently provided the world with the amazing Strontium Dog Miniatures Game (read my series of reviews here…LINKY). My hopes are high as I dig into the Judge Dredd: I Am the Law, Starter Set.

Uncle Mike is back again with the second part of his Strontium Dog Review, so let us holster our blasters and get right into it!
Imagine my delight in finding that a reputable company had made a game about a beloved, if a bit obscure, comic character of my youth, and further, that it was written by a couple of heroes from my childhood.
Sound too good to be true?
Come have a closer look at Strontium Dog The Miniatures Game and see if it can live up to the nostalgia of a youth misspent…
Warlord Games has announced a new fantasy skirmish miniature wargame that they will be releasing soon called Warlords of Erewhon. It is a game warband level game that sites between skirmish games and large scale fantasy games like AoS and 9th Age. The best part is that you can use any miniatures you want and Warlord has already announced that they will expand the game with new warbands
Here are the details that they sent to us.
Warlords of Erehwon transports us to the multifarious fantasy realms of fiction, folklore and myth, placing us at the head of a fighting force of our choosing. Model warbands clash across fantastical tabletops as humans and monsters, the living and the dead, war over the spoils of victory in a universe of heroes, sorcerers and the supernatural.
Our game has been designed with a single objective in mind – to allow us to play fast paced and exciting miniature battles upon a modestly-sized table between rival forces of that we describe as warbands. A warband represents your own band of warriors – courageous humans, blood-thirsty monsters, perhaps even minions that you have raised from beyond the grave to do your bidding.
Come down to The Sentry Box on Sunday September 9th from noon to 4pm as we will be bringing out our samurai warbands and attempting to sweep our enemies away from the field of battle using our steel and rigorous honour.
If you haven’t played Test of Honour and are curious about the game then come down and ask Zac for a demo. We’ll have demo forces available and terrain put out and ready for use.
Test of Honour is a skirmish wargame played with roughly 5-20 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a samurai hero along with one or two loyal samurai companions and a variety of clan soldiers. Battles are swift and bloody as players alternate acting with one of their warriors – moving and fighting to achieve the objective of the scenario, whether that be cutting down the enemy, defending an outpost or finding and protecting a spy.
