It’s the end of the 19th Century. Technological innovations have made it so man and machine have taken to the skies in large numbers. Smoke-belching behemoths ply the airways as they patrol for enemy flying ships. The enemy is spotted! To battlestations! Wings of smaller aircraft take off, look...

Many times now you’ve probably read about my love of the 2-player starter box for games. My first foray into miniatures gaming was via a 2-player starter. It’s a great way to rope in… I mean… join in with a friend and have ready-to-play forces (once the glue dries, generally, ...

It’s nearly impossible to hit perfection the first time you do something. Sure, it sometimes happens, but for the vast majority of the time, you get pretty close, but you still need to work at it. Well, the folks over at Micro Art Studio didn’t quite feel they hit perfection with their fi...

When I first started playing Warmachine, I played Khador. When MkII came out, I swapped to Cygnar because, in my opinion, Khador didn’t really change any, while Cygnar got some really cool, new things (models that hadn’t been viable before became viable, and so forth). Well, we’ve n...

Don’t get too excited, but the weekend’s only a couple days away (well, a day and a half). What gaming do you have planned? My D&D group is getting together for the first time in… oh… 6-7 months. Then, afterward (we tend to break up fairly early) I might be playing some G...

The American War for Independence was already chaotic enough. Then the first Ictus rift opened up and all hell broke lose (almost literally). That was a bit more than a hundred years ago. In that time, much has changed, except it seems just about everyone’s still at war with one-another. Though...
