One of the bigger announcements in comic books in the past year or so was the revelation that Captain America had always been a deep-cover Hydra agent this whole time. Spoilers: it’s not that they retconned all of Steve’s backstory from the beginning. It’s that Red Skull is having s...

One of the biggest empires the Earth has known was that of the Romans. They turned the Mediterranean into their own, private lake and pushed far up into Europe with their conquests. There, they found all manner of tribes they simply called “barbarians.” For hundreds of years, the Romans a...

We’re about a week away from May. So that means that all the rain we’ve been getting here the past couple days is gonna pay off. I don’t think the rain has anything to do with new miniatures, though. Either way, Corvus Belli is showing off their May releases for Infinity....

You’d think that both being rather mechanical in nature, the Cybermen and the Daleks would get along. Though, (thankfully for most of the rest of the universe) such is not the case. They clash with one-another just like they clash with other races. And that’s just what they’ll be do...

The engagements in North Africa during WWII consisted of many different types of vehicles in the wide-open spaces of that desert land. With German panzer tanks around, it took a big gun to deal with them. That came in the form of the 17-pounder. Unfortunately, the original carriage couldn’t qui...

In my opinion, WWI is really what set the foundation for the rest of the 20th century. I wish it was as prevalent in popular culture as WWII is. So every time I see a new game come out based on WWI, it makes me happy, as it brings the conflict back into mind. So […]...

It’s always cool to see new artwork coming out for the games we play. Will it be some cool soldier in armor? Maybe a monk in robes? Or maybe it’ll be a spider monkey. In the case of the new artwork preview for Bushido‘s Wave 35 from GCT Studios, it’s a bit of that. In-particul...

In a way, every time we play a historical wargame, we’re playing a bit of “what if?” with it. We know what happened (at least, roughly speaking) because it’s history. But you can change that up and do things like, “what if the cavalry hadn’t shown up in time at Wat...
