    7TV

    7TV is the hit tabletop miniatures game set alongside the classic sci-fi and action TV shows of the 60s and 70s. Fight across the tabletop as your favourite re-diffused heroes or villains. Flamboyant geniuses, karate kicking angels or unearthly agents sent to maintain the universal balance fight against double agents, sultry spies, mad scientists and supernatural legends. So get out from behind the sofa. Put the kettle on. And tune in to 7TV. The plots are preposterous and the guest stars improbable. Car chases, debonair adventuring, punch-ups, explosions and open-top sports cars are all in a days work in 7TV. From the groovy mews of London town to the casino tables of Monte Carlo, flamboyant rogues and high-kicking heroines safeguard the world against madmen, despots and secret cults.

    After Action Reports

    An After Action Report (or AAR) is any form of retrospective analysis on a given sequence of goal-oriented actions previously undertaken, generally by the author himself. The two principal forms of AARs are the literary AAR, intended for recreational use, and the analytical AAR, exercised as part of a process of performance evaluation and improvement, while in most cases AARs are a combination of both.

    Albion

    The homeland of the Orcs is viewed by many as the most beautiful place on Valon. Ancient forests fill the spaces between the sprawling towns and cities which are laying the scientific and spiritual foundations of the very age itself. To the North stands proud Joccia and Taffsea, to the South lies the unforgiving waters of the Karenia Chanel.

    Barking Irons Online

    Barking Irons Online was Alternative Armies' official content portal based on it's short lived printed magazine, Barking Irons. Launched on the 8th April 2011 it featured digital versions of the articles from the magazine as well as all of the entries from AA's news blog. At the helm was Orcs in the Webbe's own commander in chief Craig Andrews. Sadly due a fall in submissions and AA's shift to blog based websites it ceased to be on 6th November 2013. However BIO's Flintloque, Erin and Typhon content lives on right here on Orcs in the Webbe.

    Below is the original introductory blurb:
