Strange to think that Gen Con is just a touch over 2 weeks away. It’s going to be here before you even realize it. If you’re prepping for any of the events, you are hopefully well into it by now. If not, you’d better get a move on. One event you may be looking to […]...

If John Conner can get some new games with him in it, then other literary Johns can, too. As such, Modiphius is going to be making a couple new games based on the John Carter series of books (written by Tarzan writer Edgar Rice Burroughs). You might have seen the movie also based on the […]...

Forge World once more expands their Primarchs line with Perturabo, the Primarch of the Iron Warriors. This one certainly has the feel of a Primarch to it, with some rather specialized armor and weaponry on the figure. Sure, it still looks like Terminator armor, but, at least to me, it looks like it&#...
