As most of you know, Faeit 212 is slowly picking up on other games sytems news and rumors. Recently we have heard from games like Dropzone Commander, Dark Age, Malifaux, Warmachine and Hordes.

As I get situated into picking up on other games sytems, I wanted to get an actual wish list of readers here. On the list right now, and coming soon, are Infinity, and Helldorado. Helldorado for instance we have some great inside contacts for up at Cypher Studios, and with the upcoming release of Robotech from Ninja Division (which includes Cypher Studios) we should be seeing some first hand information on the games there.


So what tabletop games are people playing and interested in? This is your chance for some direct feedback for the site, as we move forward.

  2. I've just read through the Dropzone Commander rulebook. While not playing yet, it is what I'm interested in.

    Another game I'm interested in, but not sure about yet, is All Quiet on the Martian Front from Alien Dungeon. It's just completed it's first kickstarter, but I'm keeping an eye out for when it starts selling the rulebook.

    As a War of the Worlds fan (Wells and Wayne versions; not the films) if any game could distract me from DZC, it would be All Quiet on the Martian Front.

    1. X-Wing IS really good! It's fast paced, and both players are engaged the whole time. It's super easy to learn, but it takes some skill to master. I love with the different pilots and upgrades, you can create some very cool synergy and tricks!

      The system is based on the Wings of War system, which may also mean nothing to anyone haha.

      Essentially creating your fleet is based upon a points system much like Warhammer. You can add different pilots and upgrades to your ships, which of course alters the points value. Yes, you can play Luke in an X-Wing or Han Solo and Chewbacca in the Millenium Falcon. For the Dark Side we have Darth Vader in a Tie Advanced, Soontir Fel in a Tie Advanced and of course everyones favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett in the Slave One.

      The game is played on a 3x3 board. There are 4 phases: Planning, Activation, Combat and End Phase.

      In the Planning Phase, there are dials which you can choose different moves on. This is fun because you have no idea how your opponent will move, so you have to anticipate things. Yes, starships can crash!

      In the Activation phase, each player moves their ships in order of Pilot Skill from Lowest to Highest. This gives pilots with a higher skill a better chance to anticipate an opponents plan and use an action accordingly.

      The combat phase, dice rolling time! This phase goes from Highest pilot skill to lowest, so someone like Wedge Antilles at Pilot Skill 9 has a chance to blast those Tie Fighters to pieces before they get a chance to fire.

      Then there is the End Phase, which is essentially taking any tokens off of ships that have expired.

      I've only played 4 games, and I've already got a great feel for the system. I'm learning more and more about how movement (the planning phase) is the most important aspect of the game.

      It's simple, fast paced yet very challenging game. I love it and I would love to see more here on it.

    2. Wings of War was awesome. Had majority of the models, 2 of each box set and expansion. They are no longer called Wings of War and FFG no longer carries it. I have not checked out the new(er) version of it though.

  4. that first model, what is it? i absolutely love it and would love to get my hands on one to paint!

    1. It's a Gluttony from Hell Dorado's Demons faction. There are two that come in the pack, one before it has eaten an enemy, and the one posted, which is after it has eaten an enemy.

  5. Studio Tomahawk's, Saga. A dark age game based around European war bands/factions eg welsh, Saxons. Gripping Beast are the main suppliers for models but warlord games and crusader miniatures have stuff as well. I'm sure perry minis will have stuff. That's the only new big game being played at my club.

    1. I have some Dust Warfare/tactics the rules for Dust Tactics are free on line.while the basic rules are simple and concise it has some power combos.I am currently going towards a German zombie theme. I have also been thinking about a Soviet helicopter theme ,but it would get torn up by the German heavy walker.

  7. Cthulu Wars looks like something that would be a lot of fun.

  8. FFG's X-Wing, Mantic's Deadzone, Privateers Press'Hordes/Warmachine, and Wyrid's Malifaux.

  9. I want to get into Infinity and Star Wars X-Wing. Unfortunately I realize that I have no friends and don't know anyone to play and that my attempts to show up at game stores on days when games are happening has never turned out very well in the past. I tend to spend money on games that require a second player yet don't know anyone that I can play with any reliability.

    1. I was in the same boat. The best thing you can do is make a flyer with your contact information and ask if you can leave it at the store. I did that, and next thing I knew we had a 50+ member gaming group.

      Nat is going to have a store finder on the site soon, it would be great if he could incorporate Player and Event finders.

    2. Yeah, put your name out there bro. I have no problem meeting people on boards and at stores. Just gotta be proactive about it, as most gamers are dying to meet others. Hell, if I knew you lived in Ohio near me I'd make plans to meet up and demo xwing in a heartbeat.

  10. I play 40k. I'm interested in 30k. Looking forward to a time when all of the Primarchs are available.

  11. I've recently found myself getting stuck in with battletech these days, not sure if there is much going on with it these days though

  12. I would like to see the games that are less covered in other blogs/news sites. Infinity and Hell Dorado are a great start. (Helps that I also play both) Also seeing things like the upcoming Raging Heroes game when it releases, Freebooter's Fate, Confrontation Pheonix edition when it releases, Ron and Bones, and similar games that are kind of niche. Just having some token "this is what the game is about" and "here are some details on factions and characters/units in those factions" would be nice. It'll give folks a chance to find information on games that you see on a shelf or on a news site and go "I wonder what it's like. Oh well, no one near me plays, so I'll never know."

    There are plenty of sources of into on things like GW and PP games. It's the other stuff that would be nice to see.

  13. I mentioned it above, but I'd like to see some X-Wing and Flames of War in addition to other games.

  14. We played a ton of Hell Dorado, back when we had to import it from France via Fantization... but totally lost all steam for it when Asmodee decided they'd never release it in the US.

    I kicked in bigtime to the Hell Dorado Kickstarter, and I'm really hoping it gives me the kick in the ass to start playing the game again.

  15. Relic Knights by Sodapopminis is one that's been fun (Beta rules so far though.) after their Kickstarter.
    If you like anime and skirmish games, it's super fun.

  16. Retro ray gun and war rocket games by hydra miniatures are 2 fun skirmish style games. Very Flash Gordon feeling

    ReplyDelete
  17. Malifaux, infinity and Kings of war are my current ones

    ReplyDelete
  18. I know its not a true war game, but I am absolutely dying for kingdom death to be released. The game sounds fantastic and I've been tempted to sell organs for the models. If I could bring myself to deface them they would make for some conversions to die for.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've been playing anima tactics since 2008. I love the game, the models are beautiful, the factions are very flavorful and unique. The only downside is rule questions are scattered around their forums until they get put in the FAQ thread.

    Factions:

    The empire:
    Pros: high armor, life, damage.
    Cons: slow, have a hard time hitting, low defense(dodging), low resistances

    Azur Alliance:
    Pros: lots of stealth, high damage and attack when hitting out of stealth. Lots of poison.
    Cons: low health, little to no armor, stealth characters weakened when out of it.

    Church:
    Pros: amazing possitive state counters. Specialists, high resisstances.
    Cons: lower output when not fighting there type.

    Sameil:
    Pros: negative state counters, magic/shootings oriented
    Cons: not the greatest in melee for the most part.

    Wissenschaft:
    Pros: high attack, damage, speed, defense(people) or high health, armor, damage(giant robots)
    Cons: low health, armor(human) or low speed, defense, high costs(robots)

    Black Sun:
    Pros: undead forces have high armor, damage, life. Humans have good support for undead forces.
    Cons: undead forces can go out of control, most humans are there to support something else.

    The empire: armored tank like faction
    Azur: stealth assassin alpha strike faction
    Church: specialist killer and buffing faction
    Samiel: shooty/ magic faction of creatures
    Wissenschaft: powerful all around, can go either humans or their giant robots
    Black Sun: humans and their necromatic creations

  24. A game that's taking off in my area is Mercs. I'd love to see some coverage here

    ReplyDelete
  25. I never actually took it up due to lack of anyone to play it with, but Carnevale looked pretty neat from the coverage of it I saw Beasts of War do, a small scale skirmish game with plenty of cool acrobatics and some other fun ideas in their system.

    I haven't really heard about them since then which was basically their launch I think, but I'd be interested to hear more.

  26. Sedition Wars!

    I like the minis and the setting. Nano machines infected zombies have some appeal to me. And Kara Black rocks.
    I've just ordered the Battle for Alabaster box.

    Otherwise, I'm interested in hearing more about Dust Tactics / warfare

  27. I'm all about the new game called "Kickstarter Wait." Not much to it other than checking updates, reading beta rules, and obsessing over products while patiently waiting for release. I keep buying expansion to increase my wait and have new things to obsess over.

    Flying Assault Butts, Drake, Wild West Exodus, DrunkQuest: 40 Proof Seas...

  28. I'm playing Malifaux, Relics and Eden by Taban...

  30. Bushido is a really cool Japanese mythology skirmish game with some really nice miniatures. I came across them at Salute in the UK when they had a couple of 2x2 scratch built gaming boards on display, which looked amazing. Check out the modelling section of the forum, a couple of players have also been making their own 2x2 boards which are equally as good.
