Monolith Con 2019 - Warcry: Untamed Beasts vs Iron Golems

Hi All,

Warcry was all the rage at this year's gathering. The guys had already played several games before I got there. So I got stuck in, borrowing some figures and learning the mechanics.

The game is fairly easy to pick up for the basic mechanics. I felt like I had it down by the end of the game.


So, I'd recommend Warcry as a system. As you can see there is plenty of scope for personalizing your own force. I may go into detail on that as I move forward with mine.

Next up, the final battle report: "Warcry: Iron Golems vs Ironjawz!"

Monolith Con 2019 - Space Hulk: Exterminate

Hi All,

Next up was a tense game of Space Hulk. Airbornegrove played the stealers and Bulldog Lopez, Cheetor, Maj Guiscard and I played the Terminators.

As with all Space Hulk games it was utter carnage.

It really went down to the wire. I really regretted my decision to not blow myself up and take the Genestealer with me. Maj. Guiscard really saved our bacon.

Monolith Con 2019 - Get to the Shuttle

Hi All,

Like all the best trilogies, this one had three parts. My squad proved to be inept yet again. I'm sensing a pattern.


I set myself up in cover and then the other side got all their activations first, so I was immediately suppressed and couldn't do anything. This essentially continued for the whole game. Oh well. Time to start working on another unit and come back to these guys later.

Monolith Con 2019 - There's Dung in them thar Hills

Hi All,

The next game in our trilogy was to locate the rare "Great White" Dunger and add to our supplementary income.

Let's get to the mayhem.

Once again the men of Borborygmus Prime get the short end of the stick. It may be time to make a new squad.

Up Next: "Get to the Shuttle!"

Monolith Con 2019 - The Great Dunger Round Up

Hi All,

In our next series of games we focused on the great Dunger herds of New Texas. The first scenario was to follow the herd on their migration and try to catch as many as we could. Bulldog made special vehicle templates and the board scrolled as we chased them.

Cheetor and Airbornegrove supplied the Dunger herd, funky looking models from Ramshackle Miniatures.

Sorry about the double picture of the crashed vehicle. I didn't notice it until near the end of the process and didn't feel like reformatting the comic. I feel like this comic feels a little drier than the game actually was, I probably didn't take the right pictures.

Monolith Con 2019 - Defense of the Orknodrome

Hi All,

Maj Guiscard told us that we needed to play at least two games to get the feel of Aeronautica Imperialis. Who were we to argue?

Since the Orks had lost the first game they would be defending the Orknodrome, their interplanetary attack vessel, from the Emperor's finest pilots.

I personally had a much harder time in this game getting the enemy in my sites.

It was still loads of fun. Enjoy!

Monolith Con 2019 - Intergalactic Dog Fight

Hi All,

No dogs were harmed in the making of this scenario.

Maj Guiscard ran us through two scenarios to get a feel for the game. In his usual style he kicked things up a notch and converted everything to 28mm scale. As you can see, we had plenty of room to maneuver.


We of course made lots of engine noises as we pulled off trick flying.
