What is The Drowned Earth?


Rating8.9 (4 Reviews)
Playing Time45 mins

The Drowned Earth is a tabletop miniatures game where brave heroes and villains risk the dangers of the wilds for glorious riches and ancient technology!

Played on a 3ftx3ft table with 5-15 models a side, TDE is a game of dynamic movement, cinematic action and narrative gameplay, where risk vs reward must be weighed every turn.

At the heart of the game is the Dynamic Movement system, where models can leap, climb, jump off buildings and shoot while doing so!

A combination of cinematic action and an emphasis on named characters means that TDE has a very narrative feel: each game tells a story.

On Table Top have produced a great getting started video on Drowned Earth. I recommend these chaps if you ever want a decent introduction of a wargame.

Getting Started with Drowned Earth

Rules & Miniatures

All the rules and miniatures can be purchased from The Drowned Earth website, though I’m sure some FLGS will offer discounts on these prices.

They have numerous starter armies for the game with one for each faction, and the miniatures look great!

What is Warmachine?


Rating7.9 (23 Reviews)
Playing Time60-240 mins

The aggressive, metal-on-metal WARMACHINE game is set in the Iron Kingdoms, an environment that combines the richness of traditional fantasy with the excitement of steam power and gunpowder. Across the realm, ancient rivalries among nations are exploding into all-out conflict, setting the stage for WARMACHINE and other Iron Kingdom products.

In this 30 mm tabletop miniatures battle game, each player controls an elite soldier-sorcerer who leads an army into battle to fight for king, country, or simply coin. These warcasters are formidable and experienced combatants, and the warjacks they control represent the pinnacle of military might in the Iron Kingdoms.

WARMACHINE puts players directly onto the battlefield as warcasters and their armies clash. A game is fought with the thundering cannons, ripping iron claws, and crushing hammer blows of the giant steam-powered warjacks as well as the devastating spells wrought by the warcasters themselves and the lethal weapons of their warriors. When the dust settles, one side is victorious—and the other is nothing but smoking scrap metal!

Privateer Press have done a great introductory video to Warmachine, after which I’ve also included a Battle Report from Ash at Guerilla Miniatures because I find these very enjoyable to watch.
