What can I say? I just want to own and paint all of the miniatures. They are just too cool. There is only so much time in the year though. On this episode of the diary I take a look at a few of my favorite miniature games.
For our first crowd funded project let’s take a look at this Kickstarter from Tabletop World’s graveyard terrain for 28-32mm modular resin terrain. This terrain looks beautifully gothic and I can see it fitting so many different tabletops. Indeed, I can see this terrain working for Malifaux, Warhammer, Batman Miniature Game, and many other games.
What I really like about this is that this is truly a modular set of terrain that you can back this project and receive physical copies of. You can pick up as much of it as you want, duplicates of certain pieces if you would like, or just a couple of pieces to supplement your gaming board. Whatever direction you want to take it, this terrain is certain to make your table look more stunning!
Keeping to this week’s theme, The Nightgaunt’s Nightmare project from Cosmondo features 15 cool figures that you can use to explore your new graveyard terrain. This Kickstarter Project features only the .STL files for these figures. This means you’ll need access to a 3D printer to take advantage of these models.
In the images provided, these models look pretty cool and would be great additions to your Call of Cthulhu RPG game or to add as additional background characters in any horror game (miniature or otherwise). Indeed I could see some of these figures getting used in even Zombie Apocalypse games!

One of the biggest challenges for many players when getting started with tabletop miniature war gaming is to find the right terrain. Even as a seasoned war gamer I felt like it was a struggle to find good terrain for my games of Batman Miniature Game. In this article I dive into some of the best places I have found to pick up terrain for my modern war gaming needs.
Modern war game terrain can take several forms. You have to decide if you are gaming in the more urban areas of the world, residential suburbs, or even rural locations. The place in the world becomes a consideration as well. Playing a game set, for example, in the Middle East is much different than trying to play out a game on the streets of Gotham or New York City!
Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular game settings and see who makes great terrain for that environment.

If you are like me, then you enjoy winning. The key to that in Batman Miniature Game Third Edition is the objective deck. If you are one of those people, then this is the right spot. We’ll work on leveraging the general objective cards to optimize your Joker crew.
One of the challenges that players face with Batman Miniature Game Third Edition is what cards to include in their objective deck. Between the crew specific cards, the general cards, and the character unique cards it can be overwhelming to determine what cards work for you.
Add in the complexity of having to then analyze your crew build to so that you can complete those objective cards just tosses another challenge into the mix. In order to win consistently in this game I find that you need to score 20+ points in the game. With Joker I actually find that I need to be in the 25+ points range.
Let’s take a look at the general card deck and see what makes sense to take.
