The Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have some interesting-looking characters they interact with. One of them is the space pirate, Yondu. I mean, he’s got an arrow that he can control… psychically? Magically? I don’t honestly know. But you don’t want to get hit by it, th...

Well, we’ve had the Desert Rats book as well as the Monty’s miniatures set. We’ve also gotten the Afrika Corps book, so that just leaves Rommel’s miniatures. And that’s just what we have for you now from Battlefront for Flames of War....

Doctor Who is getting a couple new games this year. One of them is the miniatures skirmish game coming from Warlord Games. If you’re one of the many Who (see what I did there?) have been wishing they could just jump ahead and time and get it, you’ll be happy to see that there’s a [&...

These aren’t just not the droids you’re looking for, you want to make sure that they’re not the droids that are looking for you. While they might outwardly look like C-3P0 and R2-D2, don’t expect BT-1 and 0-0-0 to help you overthrow oppressive regimes. They’re going to b...

I guess, if you play a game of Flames of War, you could have the British fighting against the British. To my knowledge, there’s nothing that says otherwise. But, really, people want to play the British versus the Nazis. And since we got a look at the Desert Rats book before, let’s take a ...

The most interesting thing about King Charles the I is that he was 5’6″ tall at the start of his reign, but only 4’8″ tall at the end of it (source). … Ok, seriously, that’s the only thing I could hear while reading about this book. Warlord Games has started taking...

The North African Front is sometimes neglected when it comes to the history of World War II. It was a long and dusty campaign of maneuver seeing the Desert Rats facing the Desert Fox. In this case, it was the rats that came out on top. The Desert Rats book from Battlefront gives you a […]...

Technology continues to move forward at a steady pace. I remember when I was a kid, we had a daisy wheel printer, along with a dot matrix. Then, later on, we got a laser printer, so you could actually print in different fonts (oh my!). Further later on, we had a color printer! Now, all […]...
