This is my first ever geeklist. I have been researching some mini games and have found a few I think I like. I haven't played real miniature games since Warhammer 40k, 3rd edition.

Please feel free to add a game to this list if you think it might be something I am interested in.

I am looking for a game between a smaller skirmish and a small warsize game (nothing larger than a small/mid sized 40k army).

Other than that, there are not many requirements.

This game looks awesome and I watched several game play videos online. I also have a couple starter boxes that I am currently building.

Everything about this game so far looks great. I have watched a couple of dozen youtube videos and have a pretty good grasp on the rules. I really enjoy how it is "always your turn" because of the reaction firing and whatnot. It seems to be on the smaller end on skirmish and without a lot of terrain will be bloody.

My starter set should be here Friday (unless UPS is late), so I will be getting my first official game in over the weekend.

I played a little of the first edition, so this one interests me. I am not sure about all of the decks of cards though, it seems like there are massive amounts of cards for your armies? Can anyone let me know how this works out.

I came across these minis on coolminisornot.com and they look really nice, but I haven't read or watched many videos on the game. So this is on this list solely because from what I have seen it looks good and I am eager to hear about how it is as a game.

A friend of mine had a Blazing Sun and United Federation starter set, so we gave this a go last weekend, it was "ok". I think the biggest problem was we had to fiddle with the rules as neither of us played it. I did really like the miniatures and the theme though, it was awesome looking.

This is a Mantic product. I have demoed this game once or twice at Gen Con and really enjoy it. The rules are pretty simple and the miniatures are amazing. It has a generally low cost for start up and a lot of variations in the armies. I'd take a look.

Build your army of golems - add knight (with special powers) to pilot them. Add Ancient powers (using mana) for cursing or blessing areas.

It comes with a pen. Point on the board, golems or cards to calculate hit or movement and other stuff.

No rules to forget or doing wrong. It is all in app.

Some may say it distracts from game to check to app frequently. I say no.

In "normal" games you check TEC (Terrain Effect Card) CRT tables, flip the rulebook open, and keep track action points and similar stuff.

IMO this distracts as much as clicking a button on the pen and check the data on the app.


Warning!
You have to have an app device (Android or iPad) with new Bluetooth 4.3.
