At one point in time I was going to write my own chess/wargame rules and then I found Warchest. It pretty much incorporated all of the good ideas I had and then added more. I've played a handful of games, the rules are easy to understand and the game plays fast. It's a simple beer and pretzel style game but provides enough strategy in the form of terrain and special abilities to make a little more cerebral. I'd definitely recommend it.

You can download the rules for free from their website but to get the cards which contain the figure stats, you will either need to purchase a starter set or use DB they created for Army Builder.

Today in Showcase, we're showing off some WarChest figures from Lance & Laser, as painted for TMP by Stuart Lunn over at Demon-Brushwurkz.


The WarChest product line provides boxed sets of fantasy figures, and a set of rules for playing on a conventional checkers board. Players can use the figures as-is - in fact, the pictures on the back of the box shows unpainted figures on the gameboard - although wargamers would likely paint them up!

The set painted by Demon-Brushwurkz is the Dwarf Starter Set, which includes four Dwarves, a Stonewalker, and a Medusa. The figures are also available individually. Oh, and there's a warchest (which is an objective in the game).

(The chest photographs more "blue" than it actually is - the true color is a bluish-grey.)

Although the game does not require basing, Stu thought it would work best to mount the models on Warhammer-style bases.

Demon-Brushwurkz charged £36.00 GBP for painting the six figures, £3.00 GBP for the warchest, and £10.00 GBP for international shipping (U.K. to U.S.) with insurance - for a total of £49.00 GBP.
