The Geeknson Henry Gaming Table is our second gaming table. It’s a beautifully made table but does so at a costly price point. This type of gaming accessory is most definitely a luxury item. Not everyone needs one, and a gaming table like this is not a minor consideration when deciding to purchase one. We hope this review will help guide you in making the decision if this table is right for you.
When we bought our new house, we decided we wanted to invest in our second gaming table. Our first table is a Jasper Gaming Table from Allplay (formerly BoardGameTables.com) This table is an excellent table for all of the reasons in our previous review. However, for our new space, we wanted to have a signature table that more closely matches the wood finishes and look of the room as a whole.
It was a little over a year ago when my wife and I decided we were going to purchase our first tabletop gaming table. With a market full of options, there were a number of things to consider. Ultimately, we purchased the Jasper Gaming Table from BoardGameTables.com. With over a year of use I feel it’s a good time to give it a review
The Hulks! I am painting up side by side these two Hulk models. The one on the left is the Hulk by Atomic Mass Games for Marvel: Crisis Protocol. The one on the right is the Hulk from Knight Models that is OOP for their Marvel Miniatures Game.
Starting with the Atomic Mass model, he is big and well proportioned with a look of rage and what looks like a mean right upper cut about to be landed. Puny god indeed! The model is plastic and the seems I am not super happy with. I probably should have dry fit the model before gluing because I did end up with some gaps. Of course, this was the first model I built for the game. After some quick greenstuff to clean up the gaps, he was ready for paint and work with the airbrush.
In comparison, I am painting up the Knight Models version at the same time. If you thought the Atomic Mass model was big and fearsome, the Knight Models version is bigger, meaner and the detail is so much more intense. The fact that this model is metal just adds to the intimidation factor. Move this model on the table and he is going to make a resounding thump! However, the proportions of this model seem to be a bit off. The upper body, shoulders and arms seem to be out of proportion with the rest of the model. I feel it works as there is so much attention to the top part of the figure. The base is also slightly smaller for this version of the Hulk, but there’s no issue with the model being top heavy.
Overall, I prefer the Knight Models version of the figure. The detail of the figure, the shredded clothing, more rage in the facial features just makes this model so much more intimidating. Painting is still in progress and I will post the final painted models in an update to this post down the road.
Update: 8/25/2020 Here is the promised finished pictures of both figures.
So, I know barbed wire really isn’t something that you think would appear much in a Warhammer Fantasy game, and you would be right. Of course, in a game world with steam engines and loads of black powder it certainly isn’t out of the scope that there could be barbed wire. On top of that, as you have heard Brian and I have been really into this 28mm game called Bolt Action by Warlord Games. It’s a WW2 game and it’s a great time, but all of my fantasy terrain didn’t have all of the stuff really that could be used for a WW2 game, or even a future game like Warhammer 40k.
