Cosplaying. While some take an unpleasant view of it, I do not. I see it as no less a part of our hobby than taking a lot of time and effort to paint up an entire army of miniatures. It takes a lot of time, dedication, and often is very costly. And honestly, who doesn’t […]...

They come in all types, from really early prototypes that have, literally, duck tape and pieces of cardboard boxes as components, to ones that are about 95% of what the finished game would really look like (maybe they just get a little extra polish and R...
