Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I’m typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I’m making cookies, chocolate-coa...

The British Isles certainly have seen their fair share of conflict over the centuries. Seems everyone wanted that piece of land to call their own. Rather rich in various resources, it’s no wonder that armies have almost constantly been plundering it. Now you can recreate some of those conflicts...

Try not to panic, everyone, but the weekend is just around the corner. I’ve spent the last 3 going around all over Atlanta gaming (D&D one weekend, Guild Ball the next, and Drunk Quest (even though I didn’t drink) the next). What sort of things have you been up to? And have you had c...

If you’re gonna have your troops do what you need them to do, then you need to have good commanders in charge of them. So it is with that in mind that Warlord Games has released some new Janissary Command models. Though even with good command, it’s a battle, so people are bound to get [&h...

This week is certainly getting off to a rocket of a start. Obviously, you can’t see any of the goings-on over on the opposite side of the screen, but needless to say, it’s been a rather busy morning. Thankfully, all of it is “busy in a good way.” Anyway, as I have a moment fro...
