Hi Collision fans, As you might have noticed we haven�t been posting a lot the last few months. 2018 has been a year for us with lots of ups-and-downs. That�s why we decided to make a post informing you of what has been going on with us and Code Orange Games in the last few months and what our plans are for 2019.

Vermintide 2 review - Crack a Rat It's gory as hell, imagine a fantasy based 'DooM' team based platformers and players aren't far off. Whilst Vermintide 2 does offer offline and online modes, the actual game is online. What this writer means is that offline progression won't carry over into online scenarios.
WIP: Eldar / Aeldari Windriders of Iybraesil #2 Hey guys, we're experiencing the hottest summer in Germany ever, but still, I soldier on… the first batch of Jetbikes is 98% done. To add a little bit of my own touch, I'll only use rebreather-style Guardian helmets for this squadron, matching the style of the Vyper gunner.
Bishop's Stumblers Vs Deadicated Few Nuffle wasn't really on my side on Tuesday. The Deadicated Few travelled to the Bishop's Stumblers home turf and ended up beating my dwarves 0-4. It is was interesting going up against an Undead team because they share a few similarities with Dwarves.
An idea that just will not go away I really like the somewhat abstract way in which my fellow blogger Thistlebarrow has approached organising his Napoleonic armies. Since retiring to Spain he has been using his numerous armies to re-fight whole campaigns, something that I would love to emulate… but with campaigns set during the Second World War.

Alick had 9 Catachan Hellhounds, a Tank Commander and three units of Scions. I was lucky in that I manage to split the squadrons up and have them attack piecemeal.

The Backlog The Hobby Procrastination is Real. I was probably a bit hasty when I bought my extra Stormcast Paladins last year. Heck, I think I was still in the hyper 'this is so fun and easy' phase, where everything was possible. Then the backlog started. Mind you, I know a lot of people out there in this hobby are the same for various reasons.
RETRO: The Ziggy Board Game….Yes, THAT Ziggy It should come as no surprise that board game tie-ins are common among many POPULAR TV shows, movies, cartoons and comics. But, even still, someone like Ziggy can get his own board game too. Maybe I've just grown out of it by now, but I don't know anyone who still read newspaper comics.

Mantic: Deadzone Faction Focus - The Enforcers Get ready for this year's Deadzone summer campaign with this faction focus from Mantic. The Enforcers are who the Council of Seven turns to when things are going very, very wrong. They wear heavy armor, carry a variety of weapons and have good shoot and survive stats that make them tough to take down on the field.
KeyForge: FFG's Big Gamble KeyForge is a new type of game from Fantasy Flight Games. This "Unique Deck Game" isn't an LCG, CCG or TCG - it's a whole new beast. With each deck being unique, it's a pretty big gamble.
Lore for Adeptus Titanicus and the Horus Heresy Though the Heresy was first mentioned in the original Warhammer 40,000 rulebook in 1987, it was the following year that Adeptus Titanicus expanded on it and introduced the core of the background you know and love - all as a way to explain battles between two armies of Imperial Titans!
