Monday’s gone. That first hurdle to the work week is in the past. Time to get over it not being the weekend anymore and, instead, set our sights towards next weekend. We’ve got another 3.5 work days to get through, and we could use something to help make that time go by quicker. I know [&...

In case you hadn’t noticed… It’s Saturday! Woo! Considering time differences and all, I hope a lot of you had a good time at Salute today. Did any of you pick up some awesome stuff while there? I, obviously, couldn’t go (much as I wanted to). I did, however, pick up my limited...

You know, we really should be trying to reduce the amount of hate and prejudice that is in the world today. Though, I guess when we’re talking about space aliens invading the Earth, looking to (as Bender would often put it) kill all the humans, maybe being against them is a good thing. Either w...

Buying online can be really helpful. Perhaps a game isn’t stocked in your area, or you don’t really have an LGS, or whatever reason you might have. The only problem is that a lot of the games we want are kinda heavy and can be bulky. As such, shipping costs can easily eat up whatever [&he...

Sometimes it’s strange to think just how long certain games have been around and how sculpts have changed over the years. I got in pretty much on the ground-floor of Warmachine, back when units still came in “leader” and “trooper” blisters and everything was pewter. You ...

Viktor Pendrake is one of the most-beloved characters in Hordes. The adventuring scholar has been known to players of that universe ever since the first Monstronomicon. He went all around the world, cataloging all the strange and wonderful (and often extremely dangerous) creatures that inhabited the ...

I realize, as I type this, and the Imperial March starts playing on Pandora, that a good, “good guy gone bad” story is something most love to watch. Some fairly iconic characters were once good guys, but then went a little astray. Is there still a hope for redemption? Only the writers kno...

It’s been a while since I played any miniatures game very regularly. Unfortunately, I sort of ended up in the “non-gaming” side of town. As such, my Blindwater army for Hordes has been sitting in their AT case, unused for… longer than I care to think about. I really should mak...

While I eventually switched over to Cygnar, my main force for the longest time in Warmachine was Khador. I remember when the Kodiak originally came out.

Seems the fellows over at WhiteMoon Dreams have been pretty busy working on Warmachine Tactics. For those that might have forgotten, Warmachine Tactics is the video game version of Warmachine. It plays 90% like the tabletop game (some things had to be changed slightly due to the change in medium). Pr...
