Well, it’s getting to be bedtime. Gotta get to sleep so I can make the epic migration back to the sauna that is Atlanta in August. I’m going to miss Gen Con. This was a good year. Despite the fact that I didn’t get really much of a chance to hang out with too many […]...

While a Kickstarter campaign is going, you might want to jump in on the action, but you might not be able to for whatever reason. Thankfully, there’s a second chance for people to join in during the Pledge Manager portion of the campaign. As backers are able to add to their order, so too can [&...

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...

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...

As we get closer to the release of the new MkIII rules for Warmachine/Hordes, we continue to get glimpses into what sort of changes are being made to the various factions. Absolutely everything is getting an overhaul, even if it’s just in points cost. But a lot of things are getting taken back ...
