You’ve quite possibly gotten your order in for the previous Chindit sets that Warlord Games released for Bolt Action. Well, now it’s time to expand your forces out with some new kits. They’re now taking orders for an HQ unit, some heavy weapon crews, and characters. They’ve al...

We all know my love of “try before you buy.” Being an informed consumer is very important in this day and age. I also think it shows a company feels they’ve got a quality product. “Look, we’ll let you try it for free and we know you’ll come back for more.” Th...

Reasons why today’s pretty awesome: 1) It’s Friday 2) It’s going to be a 3-day weekend 3) We’ve got our chili and dessert cook-off today I mean… how does it really get much better than that? Well, I guess I could be gaming afterward. But I don’t have any lined up f...

I hate when the power goes out. And I’m sure most of you would agree. It’s never an opportune time. It’s always, “damn. I was right in the middle of ____.” Well, if you were an Electrocutioner, you could probably just plug your big gun-thing into the socket and power up ...

One of the more-popular Imperial Guard groups is the Death Korps of Krieg. I’ve always loved how they look, with their trench coats and gas masks. It’s a very WWI-feel to me, which I think is awesome, since I think that war gets overlooked a lot more than it should. Anyway, there’s ...

Well, better late than never. The September releases have been posted over on Zenit Miniature’s website. Being a pretty spooky time of year, the releases certainly reflect that. I mean, you don’t often get models of guys showing off their own severed head so prominently, but you can get o...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! At least, as far as I’m concerned, anyway. And playing Malifaux certainly is appropriate, as it’s got a rather spooky and macabre feel to it. And now you can check out what will be released this month for the game (as well as a sneak-peek at...

Ramshackle Games is looking to bring a new set of rules to your tabletops. It’s called Mini Gangs and, as one would expect, it puts you in charge of your own post-apocalyptic gang. It’s designed to be quick to play, without lots of charts and rules, in three different rules tiers, dependi...

It’s German Unity Day! Being half-German, myself, I’m half-excited about it. What could make me whole-excited? Getting a free mini from Corvus Belli. As is their tradition, it’s a country’s National Day, so they’ve got a giveaway. Put your name in the hat and you could g...

You know, if you want an illegal bayou, or don’t want to have to pay all sorts of nasty import taxes on a bayou, you get yourself a bayou smuggler. Only they are able to get these hard-to-transport marshy outlets of a lake or river to you. *gets handed a note* Oh… they don’t actuall...

I tend to repeat myself around here. It’s just in my nature, really (you should hear my dad tell the same story a dozen times). Two things I’ve often said is that walking to battle is for suckers. Also, the Legio Custodes have some of the best janitorial equipment I’ve ever seen. Th...

I think it’s safe to say that most miniatures games out there use dice of some kind. Sure, there are those that go for some other method, but the fairly tried-and-true method of randomization comes from little plastic polyhedrons bouncing across the table. Aristeia is no different. But Corvus B...

When we look back on history, it’s only natural to come up with “what if?” scenarios. How would things have changed if certain factors had been altered. One that plays on many WWII historians minds is “what if the Germans had put the King Tiger tank into action earlier or in g...

Walking into battle is so passe. Why not, instead, head into a fracas on a giant demon-moose-thing? I’d probably go for that over walking. That’s what Maegan Cyndewin can do for the Litari forces in Runewars. She brings some magical power to the elves, having sworn vengeance against the U...
