The manic situation that is Monday has progressed into the calmer, more gentle Tuesday (or at least, I hope it’s more gentle for you). The rest of the work week is ahead and you could use some help getting through it. And if you’re tired of listening to your co-worker’s pop music, g...

Privateer Press has announced that their next board game endeavor will be funded through Kickstarter. Widower’s Wood will take players into the deep, dark woods in hunt of gators (as Lynyrd Skynyrd plays on Pandora. Thanks for the appropriate mood music, Pandora). While Privateer Press has been...

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’m sure most of us wouldn’t want to be just walking down the street when someone points at us and yells “How grotesque!” These new units for the Legion of Everblight, though, would probably go, “Why, thank you very much.” They’d probably then rip you a...

Though I’ve not played regularly in quite some time, I still have my Blindwater Pact army for Hordes. I really should get them back out sometime, cue up some Born on the Bayou, make a big batch of gumbo, and just make a whole event out of it. Since the last time I played, the […]...

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. It was all in pewter (as all figures from PP were at the time), but I worked on converting it, anyway, cutting off some of the extra metal around [&...

The “back to the usual” work-week continues. The only real difference is the fact that Christmas music is playing and nobody wants to murder the person with it on. Though, when not listening to Burl Ives, Bing Crosby, Perry Como, and Gene Autrey, it’s good to listen to some podcasts...

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...

Monday sort of shot by like a rocket, at least for me. Seemed like I was just waking up when I was heading back to bed. Considering it was a Monday, I’d say that was entirely fine with me. Today’s rounding itself off a bit more, which is also fine. And since we’re right here [&helli...
