Well, this is some big news just starting out the day. Knight Models has announced that they will no longer be making miniatures based on Marvel properties. Obviously, this means that their Marvel Universe Miniatures Game as well as the Spider-Man Miniatures Game are coming to an end. And they were s...

The Basic Action cards can really be the difference between winning and defeat in Dice Masters. You want to pick ones that help you, while hopefully not giving too much of a benefit to your opponent. Having Basic Actions that are tied to specific types of heroes can help, and that’s just what y...

… Comics really are weird. So, clones are really no big thing anymore, really. We’ve had Dolly the sheep around for decades now. And comics make heavy use of them all the time. But then you’ve got Shredder Shark. It’s a shark! It’s an octopus! It’s a Shredder! It&#...

While the heroes tend to take much of the attention in Dice Masters, the Basic Action cards are certainly a big part of the game as well and can be an integral part of your strategy for winning. In this preview, we get a look at 3 of the Basic Action cards coming in the […]...

Riddle me this, beautiful readers… what does it take to have the self-confidence to go out in bright green like the Riddler and his crew? Especially the bright green spandex. Yeah, I just couldn’t do that. Ah well, even if I can’t go out in public like that, I can still play a Riddl...

Comics are weird. I mean, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is already pretty weird, just starting out. It’s sort of right there in the name. Well, the comics got weirder from there, including all manner of odd characters. In this case, we’re talking about Mini Shredder. Yeah, Austin Powers ce...

The previews are coming hot and heavy for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles releases from WizKids. Both Dice Masters and HeroClix are getting sets, and that means plenty of characters in various forms. The one for HeroClix today is a bit of a mouthful to say. Take a look at Savanti Alfonso Ju...

While comics take place in a world much like ours (except where you can have giant aliens and robots and such, of course), they’re usually a step apart and you don’t get too many real-world crossovers. Well, back in 1978, DC brought boxer Muhammad Ali to their pages where he sparred again...

Ah, the alternate universe. It’s a great way for a writer to take characters that we all know and love and put them into new situations or give them similar but altered traits. And that’s just what happened in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. In an alternate reality, the Turtles ga...

Dice Masters isn’t the only game getting a Ninja Turtles expansion soon. HeroClix will be getting their 3rd mutant-themed set when Shredder’s Return comes out. And what would fighting against Shredder be without fighting against Foot Soldiers? Nothing, that’s what. Well, the new set...

The characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world have gone through dozens of iterations since their initial comic release. Sometimes they’ve been a bit more dark and gritty. Other times they’ve been more lighthearted and kid-friendly. So just saying, “Ninja Turtles” ca...

Munchkin is one of those games that I think it’s safe to say that most of us have played at some point. I know I have, actually playing a whole bunch of the different versions. It’s those different versions that make the game rather fun. Well, a new version is out, of sorts, that you [&he...

Hard to believe that Knight Models has been making their Batman Miniatures Game for five years now. Their stunning line of figures has long been sought after by collectors, but when they put some rules to them, all of you gamers out there jumped at them as well. Now, Knight Models is running special ...

Ok, so, what would happen if you mixed the power of the Red Hulk, added in the symbiotic might of Venom, and threw in a dash of Biblical vengeance from Ghost Rider? Well, you’d get the Spirit of Vengeance Red Hulk. Yes, it happened (comics are weird) and it’s coming to your tabletops for ...

Comic writers love to give us alternate versions of the characters we love. With the multiple universes that they create, you can get all different types of characters, letting you explore them from different angles and under different circumstances. One such alternate universe is Earth X, where we g...

As we saw in the previous preview from WizKids about their upcoming Convention Exclusives for HeroClix, Pym Particles can be used to make things smaller, or they can be used to make things much, much bigger. That doesn’t just include Hank Pym, himself, but various objects as well, including tan...

Pym particles are mostly known for shrinking you down in size. However, with the right application, they can also cause things to grow to gigantic size. As such, Ant-Man can also become Giant-Man. WizKids is going to have a limited-edition version of Giant-Man at their WizKids Winter Open and wanted ...

A lot of really strange things can happen in the comics. Alternate-timelines and other dimensions can create situations where heroes are much different than their more-well-known styles. Sometimes, those characters don’t quite seem like something that would go into a HeroClix set. Thankfully, w...

The Batman: The Animated Series show was one of the highest quality cartoon products I feel I’ve seen. It really captured the dark, dense world of Gotham and the inhabitants thereof. Though we watched it as kids (or, at least, I watched it as a kid), it really was full of grown-up themes and si...
