Yes, yes, yes. I know that March is basically over. April will be here… well… Friday. But it just means that if you didn’t know about the books released for Shadowrun and Battletech the other day, you can just run yourself out and get it. Also, you can get your finances in order for...

And we bounce back in the WizKids previews to the upcoming Uncanny X-Men set for HeroClix. This time around, it’s the mistress of misdirection, herself. Now you see her. Now you see someone else. Now you see someone else else. And so forth and so on. It’s a preview of Mystique....

On the long drive up to Adepticon, Blackstock and I had conversations about many topics. One was parallel universes and alternate realities. Like how, right now, there’s an infinite number of mes, all living different lives (or exactly the same lives) as me. Craziness. Well, in Adventure Time, ...

You know, we’re all new at something at some point. And while you may have a natural talent for something, you’re still going to have to do a lot of learning to be able to become a master at any particular skill… particularly adventuring in a fantasy realm. That tends to take a lot ...

Hobby gaming, in general, is a pretty expensive hobby. Figures for the various games that we love to play aren’t always cheap, and that can lead to a lot of people feeling that they really can’t get into it. However, that doesn’t have to be the case, as is being shown with Granny Gr...

When it was announced that WizKids was going to create a line of unpainted minis, there were calls of… let’s say, skepticism. Many people don’t associate great sculpts with WizKids, and the idea of simply getting unpainted versions of those figures didn’t really appeal. Howeve...

Oh, and there’s the Deathwatch Kill Team that’s gone missing. That’s probably a bad sign as well. We should probably send in another to check ...
