It’s getting cold out. Some people are more used to cold than others. Those that live in the cold, northern part of Mantica are certainly used to it. But they are heading south, looking to get some feeling back into their fingers. As such, the Northern Alliance is making its way into the Kings ...

I love alternate sculpts for minis. I truly do. They’re a great way to add some personality and customization to your armies and teams without having to be a professional modeller, yourself. Plus, for those that are sticklers for such, they’re not proxies, so they’re good in any tou...

The Phantom II, as a fighter… is lame. That’s just the nature of it. It’s not a fighter craft, it’s a shuttle. You’re not going to be getting a lot of kills with it. And that’s ok. That’s not what it’s in your squadron for. What it’s there for is ...
