We’ve made it, everyone. We’re into Friday. Just gonna finish up the day and we’ll be into the weekend. The end is in sight (and it’s not just a freight train at the end of the tunnel… … … I hope). But if we’re going to have a weekend full of gaming (as...

Not every tank has to be bigger and stronger than the last. There’s plenty of tactical room for a smaller, lighter, faster, and more maneuverable tracked vehicle. So, while the Russians might be generally known for looking to build the biggest version of many battlefield weapons, the T-70 tank ...

Well, it’s been a bit of a short week here in the office, having only come in Wed-Fri. Though, with having just a little time off from Gen Con, it felt much longer. I’m looking forward to a weekend of doing probably not all that much at all. Just some time to decompress a bit. […]...

The folks over at Assault Publishing have always been rather busy, coming out with new minis pretty much all the time. Well, they’ve decided to be even busier and come out with a new space combat game called Shadows in the Void (I guess you could say that the story is as much announcing that...

Usually, when you think “Warsaw” and historical minis, you might think about something like Bolt Action or Flames of War. However, the city has had quite a few conflicts pass through its city gates over the centuries. One of the most significant is the Battle Of Warsaw that took place in ...

So, I have made it to Indianapolis for Gen Con. And I’m sitting in my hotel room, sorting e-mails, replying to e-mails, and typing up these posts. I hope you all appreciate it. 😉 😛 Anyway, seeing as it is Wednesday (though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, at least to me), it’s tim...

Not everyone has time to paint their minis. As such, they like the idea of getting them either painted after they get them, or just buy models that have already been painted. Well, Warlord Games has been kicking around the idea of selling pre-painted minis for a while. They got the first batches of s...

People learn in different ways. Some of you can just read a rulebook cover-to-cover and know everything you need to know about a game. Others learn by hearing the rules talked about with friends or on a podcast or something. Others still learn best by actually just trying something out. For those tha...
