For tabletop miniatures I have warmachine/hordes and like the miniatures and setting fluff. However, I find the ‘kill the warcaster’ scenarios to be a bit tedious. It needs more story missions and although I can make my own, balancing armies with superior goals can be tricky.

Also have Frostgrave which does have scenarios, but yet to get chance to play it. I plan on recycling warmachine/hordes figure for that.

Back to Iron Kingdoms and the RPG has loads of fluff to make it interesting, but the war game dice mechanics don’t work for an RPG, as 2d6 is wrong for pc skills, things are impossible, or too easy.

As for boardgames… play time is crucial to me, so I feel a 90-120 minute duration is important, with a short set up if possible (<15 minutes).
