Being firmly into winter (despite what the thermometer says here in Atlanta), that means we’ve got some rather short days going on. Sure, it’s around a month since the solstice, but the days are still pretty short. As such, there’s plenty of shadows within which you can lurk. Also r...

Arachnophobes beware. There’s new releases available for Dark Age over in the CMON webshop and they include some giant spiders. Well, it’s a lot more than just some big spiders. The new Dragyri book and card packs are also available. Need something to smush those spiders? The Kukulkani ce...

So, it’s coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It’s been a very busy day. I’m tired, but still pretty amped about everything that’s gone on. And I’m sure you all would like to know about some of it. There’s been about a billion things...

The world of Samaria is harsh and unforgiving. That means the inhabitants of it must also be harsh and unforgiving. Such is the case with the new releases from CoolMiniOrNot for Dark Age. Even the resculpted combat medic is unforgiving. I mean, look at the size of that needle!...

You know those people that get along better with animals than they do people? The kind to go to a party and spend the whole time talking to the dog or cat as opposed to talking with anyone else? Lynette, Master Herder of the Durshe tribe is one of those people. She’s also making her […]...

The latest Dark Age releases are available now over in the CoolMiniOrNot webshop. They’re a trio of resculpts of some rather classic minis. I’m always a fan of resculpts. I love seeing how a model can be updated with changes in general aesthetic styles in gaming, as well as an increase in...

There are many awesome things about the CMON Expo. Getting information about future games and game releases from the panels is one of them. The first panel here today is being given by Dave Taylor about future releases for the miniatures games Dark Age and Wrath of Kings. So, let’s dive in....

It’s been a great day here at the CMON Expo. Lots of cool stuff going on. Lots to see. Lots to do. What? You don’t believe me? I thought we were better friends than that. But fine, if you want photographic evidence of the awesomeness, that’s alright. I’ve got you covered....

As you know, I’m a fan of gaming. If that gaming also helps a charitable foundation, then that takes something already pretty cool and just turns the awesome up to 11. The NOVA Open Charitable Auction works to raise funds for charities by selling raffle tickets for armies for various games. The...

It’s day 3 here at Adepticon. It’s been a wild day… and I’m not even talking about the gaming. We woke up to some lovely weather. And then, just about 10min. ago, for about a minute, the lights all went out in the dealer’s hall/gaming area. I just missed snapping a photo...

Well, we just passed Easter last weekend. A lot of people took the time to go to church, even if they don’t normally make a habit of it (whereas nuns do tend to make a habit of it… Get it? Get it?… never mind). Anyway, the Forsaken are Dark Age‘s religious fanatics and they...

The world of Samaria is full of interesting inhabitants. There’s the general populace who are working as hard as they can to get by with whatever meager scraps they can get a hand on. Then there’s the really powerful personalities. Strong leaders who are looking to make the best of the si...

As we’ve seen, conventions are starting to come up quickly. Can you believe we’re already at the end of February? 1/6 of the year is almost gone. Well, one show I’m really looking forward to is the CMON Expo (ok, I might be a little biased, but that is my honest opinion). Well, I...

A New Year brings a new look to some old models over in Dark Age. You know, as times change and such, old sculpts, as good as they might’ve originally been, and how much we’d drooled over them in the past… they can just get to feel stale. So that’s where a good reculpt comes [...

While, for a lot of people, the convention may seem to end at Gen Con, that’s really not the case. There’s still shows after that. One of them is the NOVA Open, held in Arlington, VA. Many different gaming companies will be there holding events. CoolMiniOrNot is one of them. They’ve...

Saturday was everything one would expect from Gen Con. The hallways were certainly filled with gamers, geeks, and nerds of all type. All sorts of awesome things were happening. Too many to just have still photos cover it all. Thankfully, there’s video, and CMON has a Day 3 video wrap-up they...

The world of Dark Age is ever-changing and evolving. Characters grow and adapt as the storyline continues on. Well, obviously such a thing would happen in the fluff, but it also happens in the rules for miniatures. New versions come out that show how the characters have progressed. St. Joan is one su...

Strange to think that Gen Con is just a touch over 2 weeks away. It’s going to be here before you even realize it. If you’re prepping for any of the events, you are hopefully well into it by now. If not, you’d better get a move on. One event you may be looking to […]...
