Sometimes you just gotta bring out the big guns. Enemy armor or fortifications need to be blown to smithereens and your regular hand-held piece just won’t do it. So you call in the artillery. That’s what we’ve got with these new releases for Beyond the Gates of Antares. The Isorians...

As I’ve said with pretty much every Legio Custodes release, I wish I had that kind of gear back when I was a janitor. This one, in particular, would’ve been nice. Trust me, I’ve come across many, many, many things in those previous jobs that made me go, “Kill it with fire!!!&#...

One of the perhaps less-known parts of WWII was the exploits of the Chindits. These jungle-fighting specialists went into Southeast Asia and deep into enemy territory to harass the enemy’s back flanks. They would disrupt support and rail lines with their guerilla-style tactics. You can now add ...

Part of Warmachine/Hordes is that players are encouraged to run theme forces. That is, an entire army based around a certain style of unit or a way of play. Sure, you can go totally “combined arms” with some mercenaries or minions thrown in, but usually you’ll be able to get a coupl...

The article, itself, already uses “Home is where the Hearth is,” so I can’t really do that one again. So, I’ll go with “Happy Hearth’s-Warming, everyone!” A few of you might get that, anyway. But enough on puns of this player’s name, Steamforged is show...

When it comes to the Latari Elves in Runewars, they don’t need a Lorax to speak of the trees. The trees are perfectly capable of expressing themselves on their own. Which means woe to those that would try and do harm to them or those that protect them. They are the Aymhelin Scions, and theyR...

In any society, there’s going to be those who don’t want to follow society’s rules and would rather just forge their own path. This often means taking from others, leading to a rough life of banditry. Certainly, there were those types in feudal Japan, and Warlord Games is letting yo...
