Flinta Beginners Event

I come from a place where miniature gaming is seen as childish and boyish. Whenever I speak of tabletop back home, I always get the “Isn’t that, like… a boy thing?”, followed by weird looks, an awkward smile and a change of topic. Things in Berlin are much less judgemental, thankfully. Here, I was free to pursue the hobby and chat and play and get carried away by little plastic fantasy soldiers along fellow enthusiasts.

Still, a good measure of that stereotype prevails. Playing with little soldiers is “not feminine”. Social pressure led to a hobby community composed mainly of straight cis men. I have been to geek events where women are rare creatures, and most often companions to the actual players or hobbyists who convinced them along. Some of them seem to have interest and look longingly into the miniatures on the shelf, but never take the step.

Use the pointy end!

An excursion into the Phalanx unit for Age of Fantasy (OPR) by Jachymor

The spear, as both a tool and weapon, is so engraved into Human culture, every toddler instinctively
knows how to use a long stick to poke another human. In combat, this expresses a need to poke
someone from a safe distance without getting poked back. In Human military history, rows of
professional and exceptionally long spears dominated the field of poking until gunpowder-poking
was invented. Silly intro aside, I will explore the Phalanx rule and unit applications in Age of
Fantasy. I hope you find this entertaining and maybe inspires you to field pointy pokers yourself –
or how to counter them.

The Baked Apple. ITGCB’s One Page Rules: Age of Fantasy: Skirmish Campaign

Trouble is brewing in the westward plains. An ongoing war is causing refugees to flee east, into the, if not well-off, then at least stable and self-sustained communities of two cities living next to the Albis river: the Bundesrepublik Apfegipfel, a rugged, conflicted human-dwarf commune and Weizenhof, a relatively cosmopolitan trading and farming hub.
