Hello Dudes and Dudettes,
My name is Marcel and i’m currently sitting in Treves, Germany. After (mostly) turning my back on a well-known miniatures-manufacturer that got a little too greedy for my taste, i finally managed to buy my first Gates of Antares models and i love them. I don’t know if i ever felt that excited to actually play a game (even if that’s probably not gonna happen very soon).
The more realistic hard-scifi feel of Antares is a very welcome relief to the ultra grim dark fascist-super-knights fighting space-demons, robot-skeletons and naughty-space-elves (which can be good fun, too – but feels a bit over the top lately).
I seem to have an inherent talent to kill things with my mere interest, so i apologize in advance should BTGOA go out of print as soon as i have finished my first army list 😛
Be excellent to each other!0August 6, 2020 at 12:04 am #180448Samuel V. Wilson, Jr.Participant
I read your post with interest. I began my relationship with Warlord Games 5-6 years ago through the BTGOA portal. I had freshly joined a club and one of the old hands (a now retired foot surgeon) game-mastered a pretty straight forward engagement between Algoryn and Boromites. It helped that he was a very good painter, as well. About 8 of us gathered around a 7×5 foot table, playing on a 4 x 6 mat with suitable terrain, and we basically went at it–all for the first time. I was hooked from then on. Since then, I have gotten involved with TOH, BA, and K47, collecting and building armies, being very satisfied with the quality of the product, the gaming systems, and the customer service. Currently, I have Ghar Empire, Ghar Rebellion, and Concord armies; the latter still need painting up but I collected all that I need for it. If we can ever get past the pandemic several of the club members would like to do a campaign, among us we have the original six/seven armies on hand. I hope y0u find some playmates as it is a lot of good fun, lends itself to masterful tactical play (I am a retired army officer), and still retains enough surprise and chance to keep everyone engaged. In short, I really like the game system.
Best of luck and good gaming,
Sam Wilson, New Jersey, USA.
