Day 2 is about to be in the books (as it’s only got about 15min. left and then I’m going to go to sleep). It was quite a wild and busy Friday. The frantic-ness of Thursday turned into a more calm, but no less busy Friday. Everyone was buzzing about the games that they’d picked [&hel...

Everyone likes to personalize their army, but not everyone wants to have to green stuff their own special torsos, helmets, or shoulder pads. That’s where Forge World steps in with their upgrade kits. In this case, if you’ve got a White Scars force and you want to add a little flair to you...

With the drive to Indy yesterday, I obviously didn’t have much of a chance to make posts (and no, trying to type in the car all day was not an option. I would’ve gotten all the carsick). So today I bring you both the Midweek Snippets and today’s Terrain Corner together again in one ...

You’ve hopefully seen some of the photos I posted from the Spartan Games display yesterday. If not, go check them out. If you have, what’d you think? Halo has made it to the tabletops with The Fall of Reach starter. Now, Spartan has started taking pre-orders for some more Halo goodies, as...

Harebrained Schemes has announced their new project that they are going to be bringing to Kickstarter. It’s one that certainly I’m interested in. I spent many, many hours playing Mechwarrior 2 when I was younger. Some songs I listen to now, I still think back to those days, since I listen...

It just wouldn’t be Gen Con without Randall and Catalyst Game Labs in attendance. As they have for the past… lots of years, they will once more be at the show and they’re gonna be packed with cool stuff to see and do at booths 417, 413, 509, and 617....

Take to the skies in Sky Relics: Battle of Iron Ring Skies by Sky Relics Games. Flight wasn’t achieved the first time it was ever attempted. And such was the original launch of Sky Relics. Well, the important thing is to not give up. After some regrouping, reconfiguring, and refactoring, the ca...

And now for a post that doesn’t relate to Gen Con. Ok, there’s a little bit of Gen Con at the very end. But it’s only a little bit. Catalyst Game Labs has a couple announcements to make about BattleTech, the biggest of which is the Beta release of Interstellar Operations, the sixth ...

The world of Dark Age is ever-changing and evolving. Characters grow and adapt as the storyline continues on. Well, obviously such a thing would happen in the fluff, but it also happens in the rules for miniatures. New versions come out that show how the characters have progressed. St. Joan is one su...

I’m a very big proponent of “try before you buy.” In this day and age, you can’t go throwing money around for something you won’t end up using. That goes extra for a miniatures game, where the initial investment can be rather significant. Thankfully, more companies are p...

If there was one video game I’ve enjoyed playing the most, it’d probably be Mechwarrior 2. While I might’ve played Diablo II more, I really think Mechwarrior 2 is the one I had the most fun with. As such, I’ve always had a love of Battletech stuff. Though, sad to say, I’...
