Privateer Press has a couple new previews up on their website. One’s for Hordes. The other is for Warmachine. Both take a model you sort-of know and then expand it out to monstrous proportions. Let’s take a look....

The week continues on. We’ve made it halfway through. We might as well press on to the weekend. Turning back now would just be silly. But if we’re going to make it, we should rest a bit and get some provisions. Thankfully, there’s a group of bite-size stories here just waiting for u...

Though I don’t get to have it all that often, I do love seafood. In particular, I love shellfish. However, this is one crustacean that’s just as likely to try and eat me as I am to eat him. A new preview for Wrath of Kings has been posted. It’s the Shell Cracker for Hadross....

The folks over at Privateer Press posted up a trio of new previews over on their website. There’s a bit of keeping ol’ man winter around, a little bit of “kill it with fire!,” and finally a guy who’d be happy to do just that for you....

We’re working our way there, everyone. We’ve made it to Thursday. Just the rest of today and then Friday and we’ll be set for the weekend. Mine’s looking like it’ll be full of teaching someone Warmachine and then actually getting Guild Ball out on the table and playing. ...

We’ve been seeing the models for quite some time now, but the time has finally come to get a game together for them. Demented Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Twisted, their new steampunk miniatures game. So grab your goggles, top hat, and a handful of gears and get ready to ta...

Look, I’ll just cut to the chase. You get a look at the new colossal for Cryx. Sure, there’s a new pose for Deneghra, a new Convergence warcaster, and a new light beast kit coming for the Farrow, but it’s the colossal that’s going to be grabbing most people’s attention f...

Ah, there’s nothing like the life of a pirate. Raiding enemies and plundering their loot. Swilling grog. Singing pirate tunes. Just gotta watch out about going overboard. It’s a heck of a drop. Heck of a drop? Well, it’s a heck of a drop for the sky pirates in Aether Captains, anywa...

Well… that was a bit of an adventure. For those interested in keeping track, Monday I noticed my car had a coolant leak. Tuesday I took it into the shop. They originally said, “it’ll just be a couple hours.” Then they said, “it’ll be overnight (they needed a part)....

When water reaches 212 degrees Fahrenheit (at standard atmospheric pressure), it boils and turns to steam. This causes the space it takes up to expand many times over. There’s a lot of power in that expansion, and it can be harnessed to do all sorts of work. From pushing pistons to turning dyna...

“In my experience, there’s no such thing as luck.” – Obi And while I might agree with the fictitious space-monk, in the world of Malifaux, luck certainly does play a role. In fact, Luck has its own Emissary. It’s that which we get a preview of today in Wyrd’s Monda...

Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It’s looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it’s supposed to get to 38 and the day after it’s supposed to be sunny and 51,...

We’re getting there, kids. Slowly but surely. The weekend is getting closer. It was looking like today might’ve had a chance at being a snow day here in Atlanta, but such was not the case. So at least here, we’re not stuck inside. For those of you further north that are stuck inside...

I love dragons. I’ve been known to pick up games, or to play certain factions within games, just because they have a cool dragon miniature as part of their potential figures they can play. Well, it would seem that if I were to start playing Malifaux, I would want to pick up The Ten Thunders [&h...

Sometimes it’s strange to think just how long certain games have been around and how sculpts have changed over the years. I got in pretty much on the ground-floor of Warmachine, back when units still came in “leader” and “trooper” blisters and everything was pewter. You ...

In Wrath of Kings, Resilience can very much mean the difference between keeping a figure on the field and having them taken off as a casualty. Sure, there are your wounds backing you up, but if you’ve got a good Resilience score, you might never have to worry about taking a wound. Well, in any ...

Viktor Pendrake is one of the most-beloved characters in Hordes. The adventuring scholar has been known to players of that universe ever since the first Monstronomicon. He went all around the world, cataloging all the strange and wonderful (and often extremely dangerous) creatures that inhabited the ...

I realize, as I type this, and the Imperial March starts playing on Pandora, that a good, “good guy gone bad” story is something most love to watch. Some fairly iconic characters were once good guys, but then went a little astray. Is there still a hope for redemption? Only the writers kno...

The holiday season is a good time together with friends and loved ones you might not see all that often. If your friends and loved ones are into gaming, it could be a good time to get a quick RPG session in. But, since you don’t see each-other very often, you probably don’t want to [&hell...

It’d totally spaced out, but today is the solstice. For those of us here in the Northern hemisphere, there won’t be a shorter amount of daylight. Starting tomorrow, we get longer days again (and, you know, it’s officially winter). For those in the Southern hemisphere, it’s now...

It’s been a while since I played any miniatures game very regularly. Unfortunately, I sort of ended up in the “non-gaming” side of town. As such, my Blindwater army for Hordes has been sitting in their AT case, unused for… longer than I care to think about. I really should mak...

While I’m sure most of us wouldn’t want to be just walking down the street when someone points at us and yells “How grotesque!” These new units for the Legion of Everblight, though, would probably go, “Why, thank you very much.” They’d probably then rip you a...

Along with a lot of people, I have a mild case of arachnophobia. I don’t go running, screaming like a small child when I see one. But I wouldn’t really be happy with one just crawling across my hand or foot, either. I probably wouldn’t be too happy about seeing a “large arachn...

Though I’ve not played regularly in quite some time, I still have my Blindwater Pact army for Hordes. I really should get them back out sometime, cue up some Born on the Bayou, make a big batch of gumbo, and just make a whole event out of it. Since the last time I played, the […]...

It’s time once again for Friday. Now, normally, the week after a “short week” (such as last week) feels like they take forever. At least, to me they do. That’s why if given my druthers, I’d have a Monday off rather than a Friday. You get a long weekend and then a short w...
