We’re coming to the end of the month and the start of a new one. That’s a perfect time for companies to put out some new products (considering there are people out there that get paid at the start of the month). Corvus Belli certainly thinks it’s a good time to post up some new [&he...

People can always find a way to make a buck. While not “the world’s oldest profession” (that’d be something else), paying someone to fight your wars for you certainly goes back a long way as well. And that will progress far into the future as well, as there’s a Mercenari...

Well… you know that Battle Chef I talked about a couple times last week? Uh… you see… wha-ha-happen wuz… Crits from ogre-sized lizardmen hurt, y’all. But this is just an opportunity to create a new character. I’m thinking I’m gonna go with a TV-preacher style...

Been a while since we heard from the DreamForge-Games crew. But that doesn’t mean they’ve been sitting around doing nothing. They’d taken back over distribution of their products and that can be quite a busy time. They’ve also got a pair of new figures available. Plus, they...

All good things must come to an end. In order to make room for new figures in their warehouse, the folks over at Forge World have decided to discontinue making certain other items. These pieces are never going to be made again. So if you want any of them, you’d better hurry....

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. Or, at least, the Borg are going to do their best to try and assimilate you. Your job is to defeat them. That’s not going to be easy, though. This new Cube has some surprises in store for those that want to take it on in combat....

An individual Ghar, without any sort of armor or vehicle to ride around in, isn’t exactly what most people would consider “intimidating on the battlefield.” They tend to be seen as weak, meek, and frail things. However, what they lack in physical prowess they make up for in the abil...

The week continues on. We’ve made our way to Wednesday. Hopefully the first half of your week has been drama-free (unless you’re, like, a thespian or something). It’s that time to fuel up on some bite-sized gaming stories so we can get through the last half of the week and get back ...

The Battle For Xilos book for Beyond the Gates of Antares does more than just add in some new models to your army lists. It moves the narrative for the game forward as well. And, as war tends to do, it changes people. That includes the characters in the game. As such, there will be […]...

There’s a new group of pre-orders available over on the Spartan Games website. There’s a tourney kit. There’s some deluxe flight token sets. But what most people are probably going to be interested in (if I had to take a guess), would be the OmniDyne and their new box sets....
