My dad’s side of the family is from South Dakota. Many of them are farmers. It’s not easy work. Me, as a city boy, would go and visit and spend a week or so helping out around the farm. It was fun, but man, it would definitely kick my ass. It’s easy to see how […]...

It goes without saying that Games Workshop has been making miniatures for quite a long time now. Many sculpts have come and gone, thought to be never seen again. Well, occasionally, they’ll grab some molds from a bygone time and whip up some figures if you ask them nicely. For Blood Bowl coache...

Forge World is hitting two ends of the timeline spectrum this week with their releases. On one side, they’re in the far off and mythical past of Blood Bowl with some new goblin secret weapon figures, plus a new pitch to play on, as well as bundling those in with teams and the base box […...

It was hard to decide which item to feature here for this latest set of releases from Forge World. They didn’t have anything last week, but they’ve certainly made up for it this week. There’s a new version of the famous Thunderhawk Gunship, a pair of new Imperial Armour books, and a...

Well, Steamforged shows off most of Anvil, anyway. We got a little preview back when they first announced the Blacksmith’s Guild, but now we’re getting a little more. They’re showing off the rest of the front of Anvil’s card, along with the majority of the back of it....

I’m always a fan of what different companies come out with in terms of fantasy sports teams. This time around, Tercio Miniatures has a distinctly Spanish-inspired group ready to hit the field and score some touchdowns. The team is up on Kickstarter now....

It’s New Release Day over at Steamforged Games. The next couple of releases are available for Guild Ball. I just got a game in of that last night. 12-0 Win for the Hunters against the Union. Though things might’ve been different if these two new Union members had been on the pitch. Grace ...

Many of you are not just gaming fans, but you’re also sports fans. I know the cliche is that us nerds don’t know anything about sports, but that’s really not the case. There are many sports games out there that have come and gone, some sadly so. Well, one’s getting a rebirth i...

The new season of Blood Bowl is now available to order from Games Workshop. If you were hoping for some of the teams from the older version of the game that weren’t there in the latest version (for example, Lizardmen for me), you’ll be happy to see that they’re here, as well as some...

Some people see rats as pests. Others see them as pets. Still others see them as a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield or pitch. That last group are Ratling players. They should be excited about a new Star Player for Blood Bowl and a Verminlord for Age of Sigmar being available to […]...

It’s amazing how different a figure can cost when made out of different materials. I know that’s pretty common knowledge, but it still often blows my mind. Case in point: Impact! Miniatures and Royal Art Games have a Kickstarter running now in order to make a couple of Rolljordan fantasy ...

Steamforged is looking to repackage some of their old kits in order to do a couple things: make it easier for a player to know what they need to field a basic team and make it easier for stores, since they won’t have as many SKUs on the shelf and in their catalog (note: those […]...

Salute is coming up soon. It’s an all-out, one day extravaganza. Think of a really huge gaming convention, and then cram all of it into a span of just a single day. That’s Salute. And, obviously, such a big deal means that companies at the show have big deals of their own. Steamforged Gam...

With a library of miniatures going back literally decades, Games Workshop couldn’t realistically keep everything they’ve ever made in stock. That’d be ridiculous. But since they aren’t made regularly, some older pieces can be really hard to find. Well, occasionally, GW will di...

One expects to see tanks out on the battlefield when playing a game of 40k. There’s all manner of them around. And normally you might not expect to see one when playing Blood Bowl. Well, if you’re playing for or against a Dwarven team, that might not be the case. And this week, Forge Worl...

Yes, they already make a joke about “seasoned brisket” in their post. So I don’t really need to make another one here. Suffice to say that, having left the Butcher’s Guild, it might seem as though Brisket was going to be out of Guild Ball. That’s definitely not the case,...

Most of the members of the Union that we’ve seen for Guild Ball have been the lowest dregs of society. Thieves, murderers, liars, deranged psychopaths (ok, that maybe covers a lot of Guild Ball players, but still…). These two new players are quite different. Grace and Benediction bring a ...
