Ganesha Games:
Song of Blades and Heroes - Fantasy Skirmish. Use any minis you have.
Song of Drums and Shakos - Napoleonic Skirmish.
Sixty-One / Sixty-Five - American Civil War - Company Level. Designed for 28mm or 15mm. I use 10mm; works just fine.

40K - Tyranids, IG, Marines, Orks, Eldar, Tau
Warhammer - High Elves, Orcs, Brettonnians
Warmachine - Cygnar, Khador, Menoth, Cryx
Battlefleet Gothic - Imperial, Marines, Chaos, Orks, Eldar, Necron
Confrontation - Lion, Griffon, Scorpion, Ram
AT-43 - UNA, Red Blok, Therian
Battletech - Jade Falcon preferred

There were others but I decided to limit the number of game systems I collected and de-vested myself of the excess

My favorite Game by far. You should check it out. It´s a fast playing and highly strategic fantasy skirmish. I play Halodynes and will start a Wyldfolk army soon. Here are a few pics of my upcoming Halodynes army.




For more check out my painting blog in the Godslayer-Forum.

I used to play 40k and Fantasy, but I don´t like those two anymore. I´m considering to start Infinity, Field of Glory and Pulp City. But first I MUST start with the UCM. ;)

Infinity — there's nothing else like it, to be honest.
Firestorm Armada — Spaceships. Guns. Giant explosions! Buckets of dice!
Flames of War — just starting out, but I know the Battlefront's terrain guy.
Field of Glory — also just starting, but it's a solid system for Ancients.

I started with 40k. Was uber-motivated. Played Grey Knights, Guard, then Orks. I actually started the Berks Warhammer 40k club to find local players. Then the fan-boy glasses came off and I realized that the power-creep, Matt Ward Overpower, the inability to play lists I wanted to play because the game has such issues with rules, and the price (holy crap - the price!) made me sell my army and buy a UCM army for my son and a Scourge army for myself along with a ton of terrain and a new airbrush.

I also play The Hobbit (the game formally known as Lord of the Ring) because I like the models, don't need a bunch of them, and come on - The Hobbit! Can't go wrong with that game.

Tried FoW, but it just didn't catch on for me. The rules are nice, but the games are boring. It's like they tried so hard for balance they wound up taking the excitement away.

I like Bloodbowl but don't play enough. Love Space Hulk. Tried Epic, but now I can't find the models I like.

DzC is, by far, my favorite because the rules are simple and the armies build upon them instead of breaking them. My only concern now is that future versions keep adding rules upon rules and the game becomes like all the rest of the table top games - too cumbersome to be a great game while playing drunk.

Infinity. Without doubt the best game I've ever played. Great system, amazing minis, so flexible. Just brilliant.

40k. Because we all do really.

Firestorm Armada. Exploding 6s.

Dreadball. Not really a wargame but I've been playing lately and really enjoying it.

Malifaux. Fun, but I gave it up really after finding Infinity.

Bushido. Really love the concept but its a bit meh.

Warmachine. Well, I've read the rules and quickly decided it wasn't for me.

To be honest, I've not really played DZC yet, just finished the rules and getting antsy trying to get me mate round to give it a go.

Since I last posted I've added more games.

Warmachine - jumped in with Convergence of Cyriss and I'm really enjoying it. I also have a small Cygnar force that plan to add some mercenaries to.

X-Wing - played my first two games Labor Day and will be picking up a set second hand Sunday.

I also backed two Kickstarters. Deadzone by Mantic and Myth by MERCS Minis.

It's an addiction!

40k - Started a long time ago. RTB01 was my first boxed set. I played Rogue Trader.

Space Hulk - Such an awesome game...

Warhammer - Played a little.

Necromunda - Possibly my favourite skirmish game ever. Especially all the terrain in came with in the box.

Gorkamorka - Mad max necromunda with Orks. What wasn't to like?

Battletech - My main game for almost 15 years. Loved it and played it to death.

Infinity - Still a newbie but loving my Haqqislam force.
