PostSubject: List of Games   Wed 9 Dec 2009 - 17:19

Hey guys, for my new website I need to compile a pretty comprehensive list of popular tabletop games that include paintable models (ones that people still play). Can you help me add anything I'm missing:
The Lord of the Rings
Warhammer Fantasy Battle
Mordheim
Warmaster
Warhammer 40k
Necromunda
Blood Bowl
Warmachine
Hordes
Warlord

Are any of these outdated and not really played anymore? Any popular ones that I'm missing?

There are a LOT of games out there that use minis nowadays including some board games like Squad Leader & Tannenhauser(sp).
A couple more that spring to mind:
Malifaux [Wyrd's new game]
Anima Tactics
Alchemy
Infinity
Weird WWII
All the various Zombie Games
Combat Zone
Confrontation & Ragnorak(sp)
PLUS a lot of Historical Games including those by GDW & GW.

AND Reaper's CAV would be a similar style game.

Hmmm, thanks for the suggestions!

I'm planning on having categories for all the popular games on my website (and any other game that people request) so when you add photos you can specify which game they are from, which army, and possibly even the mini manufacturer. Then there will be a directory that lets you filter based on each of those. Smile

Space Hulk and Warhammer Quest?

Both still popular and have paintable models.

Gorkamorka gets the occasional spell of mild popularity but probably not worth adding to the list.

Stargrunt
Full Thrust
Dirtside
Dropwing
Rapid Fire!
Flames of War
AK47 Republic
Bayonet & Ideology
Men of Company B
Square Bashing... other Rules For The Common Man sets
Crossfire
Crossfire: Incoming!
Song of Blades and Heroes
Warhammer Ancient Battles
De Bellis Antiquitatis
De Bellis Mutandis(?)
Wargames Research Group stuff
Polemos
Void
Urban War
Celtos
errr...
There's loads, I mean there's all the Chris Peers sets - Darkest Africa, Back of Beyond, Contemptible Little Armies etc etc

I think you're on a hiding to nothing listing rules sets. FAR better to do this:

Historical (Ancients/Dark Ages/Middle Ages/Renaissance/Reformation/17th-18th-19th-20th-Modern)
Science Fiction
Fantasy

And then subdivide them according to scale (2, 6, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 42, 54mm etc).

Trying to do it by rules set or games system is a pointless task that will result in a massively overcomplex archive. By all means let people tag their photos with the name of the system, but don't force them into archiving pics in a folder among millions, resulting in thousands of files with 1-3 pics in rather than 20 files with hundreds of pics!

Maybe I'll have specific lists for the more popular ones (Warhammer, 40k, LotR, Warmachine, and maybe a few others) and then have "Other Fantasy", "Other Science Fiction", "Other Historical" or something.

That makes more sense and is a good compromise. Smile

Love your warband calculator, by the way, I've linked to it from my blog.

Awesome, thanks. Smile New website will be up soon (hopefully in the next month) and will allow you to create an account, upload photos and files, display some info about you and your gaming, AND store your created warbands for display and editing later. Smile

Some people in TExas are HUGE with OGRE... hehehehe... no pun intended.

How about Death Squads? We play! Maybe only 100 people around the world, but we play AND paint! Razz


In related news... one of my new pet-projects is to exorcise DeafNala and his evil (demonically possessed camera)... so maybe we finally get to see his projects. My sinister plan is to use your site as his photo depository. But don't tell him... is a secret. I don't think he would be able to handle the excitement. Shocked Ohh, crap! Is this a PM? Nah... who cares... he NEVER reads ANY post here! Wink

Yeah, I was thinking of putting Death Squads on there for you guys. Smile

Man, I hope you're able to get those Demons exorcised, because I would love to have DeafNala's stuff on my site!

I don't know why you'd want something silly like that, but I'm SURE we can arrange something.
