>What is /awg/?
A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or people's homebrew wargames. /hwg/ doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason) and the other threads are locked to very specific games, so this thread isn't tied to a game, or a genre, lets talk about fun wargames.
Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.
>Examples of games that qualify
Grimdark Future, Age of Fantasy, Mighty Armies, Dragon Rampant, Of Gods and Mortals, Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares, LotR and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

Than they are much more than a bunch of HP, than they have special vulnerabilities and a place in, at least, the local region legends. Like you can only hurt him with a silver weapon like a werewolf, a rooster song will kill/paralize/incapacitate it etc.
Weird medieval bestiaries, folklore legends and pics all welcomed here. Gib me ideas, gib me the monsters than you have used in your games, memorable monsters than you remember again and again, cool lairs.";

A group of friend and I were discussing warfare in a Post-apocalyptic world. We reached an Impasse when discussing what types of weapons and gears they would be using, I and a few others said Guns, artillery, and armored vehicles in small quantity, while a few others insist that Bows, swords, etc, etc would make a resurgence.
A third group said it would be a mixture of both.
Who would be correct in the scenario?";
