It’s been a scorcher so far this week in the US. Certainly has been here in Atlanta, at least. That heat’s made it rough to go outside for anything. Seems like a good time to stay inside and do some gaming. Or at least get set for some gaming this weekend. But if we’re going [&helli...

If you’re like me, you have spent a lot of time looking over stats for models in a game you play and endlessly coming up with different builds for your teams/armies/fleets. “I could take X, and that’d give me points for Y, but not enough for Z.” and so forth and so on. Well, F...

With the release of Battle For Xilos, lots of people are jumping on the Beyond the Gates of Antares bandwagon and picking up armies. Well, the figures don’t come pre-painted (as you well know). Warlord Games would love to see all those new figures with some shiny, new paint jobs on them. As suc...

Look, not every miniature is going to appeal to everyone. We all have different things we will like or dislike about a figure. That’s alright. Well, the folks over at Siren Miniatures are asking you what figure they’ve made you like the best, and which you think is the worst. And theyR...

I do greatly appreciate a well-done cosplay (or even not-so-well-done). It’s just another aspect of our hobby, really. It takes a lot of time, research, skill, and dedication. Certainly it takes a lot more work than I’ve ever considered putting into it. Though if I could, I certainly woul...

Painting a miniature is its own reward. You’ve got a little work of art that you can also use to attack your opponent’s forces and achieve total victory on the gaming table!! But hey, if you’re really good at slinging that colored goop around, you could also get extra prizes if your...

I’ve really been looking forward to this weekend. Not that the work week’s been bad, mind you. It’s actually gone by in a flash. No, I’m just ready for a full weekend of gaming (and article-writing, which is a direct result of the gaming). What sort of things do you have plann...

All good things must come to an end. That is the way of it. Such was the case yesterday with the CMON Expo. I realize I’m going to seem rather biased for saying it, but it really is my favorite show of the year. Unlike the bigger shows, the Expo is designed to be low-key. […]...

From my experience, every gamer out there has a game that they’ve been working on in their head. Some even make it to written notes or even a prototype form, but they don’t tend to get much further than that. Well, if you really do want to try and take the plunge into publishing your [&he...
