Panzergrenadiers needed to keep up with the rest of the armored units they were warring around with. As such, they’d often jump in Half-Tracks to get from place to play. Well, Warlord Games is now giving your little toy soldier Panzergrenadiers their own ride as well. You can pick up the Sd.Kfz...

Sometimes games just need to get themselves a little update. Old mechanics that worked at the time get to seem bulky or don’t adequately cover what you want them to. New units surpass old ones in value. Things just seem stale. It happens. Well, Too Fat Lardies felt it was time to update Sharp P...

There are various video games out there that draw their influence from various tabletop properties. But most of them don’t actually play like a tabletop game. So what if you’re out, away from your minis, but you want to play a minis game? Most of the time you’d be just out of luck. ...

World War I is mostly known for the trench warfare along the Western Front, but it also included fighting between Russia and Japan.
