Carrying on with the ‘Year of Commander’ theme, Zendikar Rising features two new Commander decks as a gateway for players to enter Magic’s most popular format. If you wanted to try out Commander but uncertain of where to start, these are an ideal entry for format beginners.Continue reading Product Review: Zendikar Rising Commander Decks
Now that I’ve actually opened some Zendikar Rising product, I wanted to give my thoughts on the newest type of Booster, the Set Booster!
What is a Set Booster?
In short it’s a new type of product that lets WOTC have a bit more freedom, in a draft booster there is a need for there to be set amounts of Commons and Uncommons and a good colour spread, the same is not true of a set booster!
They have 12 cards (14 with the token and art card included) in a booster and come in boxes of 30 rather than 36, they are also slightly more expensive than draft boosters, all seeming like negatives so far, but don’t worry there are positives!Continue reading Set Boosters – My Thoughts….
Here are the results of our September 2020 painting competition. We had hoped to run monthly events however Covid-19 has really got in the way of that, however we did manage to get an event successfully run in September!
Standards in this single model competition have been very high and judging was made incredibly difficult by these fabulous models.
Any of these models could have easily been crowned the winner as each was beautifully done.Continue reading Langden Games September 2020 Painting Competition
‘May you live in interesting times…’, I now fully understand why this is seen as a curse! I know that I, for one, would like the much simpler times where global pandemics were movie plots and social distancing was an unused phrase, but as you all know 2020 had other ideas!Continue reading Matt’s Annual Ramble – A Birthday in Interesting Times…
We recently tested out the Army Painter Wet Palette while Rich was doing a commission for a French Revolutionary War Napoleonic Battalion, here’s what he thought:
The government recently announced that non-essential retail can reopen from 15th June 2020 (yay!), so that raises the question “when will the store reopen?”.
The answer is not the 15th, our plan is to reopen with reduced hours from Saturday 20th June.
Below is a list of questions about our plans around reopening:
What will the store hours be?
We plan to initially open on Saturdays and Sundays only from 10am to 4pm starting from 20th June, we’ll review this on a regular basis starting from July.Continue reading The Road to Reopening

Recently a few members of the community were talking about doing a ‘Tale of Gamers’, and we loved the idea so decided to get involved (it also means I may end up with a full painted army! – Matt).
For those that don’t know a Tale of Gamers is where a group get together and all build and paint a new army over a few months – that’s exactly what we plan to do!
Our Tale of Gamers will commence on October 1st 2018 and will run for 6 months. Continue reading Join us for ‘A Tale of Gamers’
Hello again readers!
I’m back with another article that has been sent in to us! (It’s been a while I know!).
There has been a lot of interest in Bolt Action recently (It’s a great game, we’re loving the new Operation Market Garden Campaign Book – Matt) and as part of the hobby some scenarios need one off models (such as landing craft), this is an ideal time to try a bit of scratch building!
Our friend Steve has built a number of models for his collection so below is his guide on how to go about scratch building with card, over to Steve!
Scratch building a LCM for Bolt Action, by Steve Tee
I’ve been asked about scratch building by various people so I’m writing this article to explain.
The first thing you need to do is research. I usually find several photos/ drawings of my intended model, including a side and front elevation, and as many obliques as I want, to show all of the details. Also, I find the overall dimensions, usually on Wikipedia. With this information I can start marking up the pictures. Continue reading Scratch Building a LCM for Bolt Action
Recently we asked you to send us submissions for our website, and we’re pleased to say you didn’t disappoint, we’ve been sent our first article!
Thank you to Adam Higgins for his Black Power Battle Report!
The battle takes place around 1811 and sees the forces of Marshall Ney taking on the British commanded by Sir Miles Nightingall, anyway enough from me, I’ll hand you over to Adam to tell us what happens…
Black Powder Battle Report, by Adam Higgins
In this battle the French battalion is holding a hill, this hill gives a vantage point overlooking a village in french territory. Marshal Nay is here to inspect the troops when all of a sudden the drums of war are beating, the British have sent a battalion to siege the hill.
We’re looking to expand our website with a selection of modelling and gaming articles from the Langden Games team.
