In the upcoming issue of Ravage Magazine US, there’s a review of the Batman Miniatures Game by Knight Models. Before now, I have to admit that I’d not really looked into the game. However, after reading the article, I’m rather intrigued and just might have to look into it more. In t...

Thursdays. Arthur could never get a handle on them. The Cure didn’t care about them. It’s after Wednesday, so we’re in the latter half of the week. But it’s not the joy and relief of a Friday. Oh well, we do get a Terrain Corner feature to hold us over, though. Today’s i...

Seems we’ve finally started seeing “End of” Summer sales. Well, it’s the start of the sale. It’s just the end of summer. It’s the start of the end of summer sale. I can see how that’d potentially be confusing. So I’ll put it like this, “Go to Wast...

It must be a Thursday. I never could get a handle on Thursdays. Actually, I’m navigating the day just fine so far. I just like quoting Hitchhiker when I can. And seeing as it is, indeed, Thursday, it’s time again for a Terrain Corner. In today’s installment we have: Amera Plastic Mo...

I just realized that I wear a blue shirt on Mondays. I know you, and The Cure don’t care, but I wanted to mention it anyway. The other thing Monday has going for it is one of our Terrain Corner features we tend to have. Want a kick-ass looking gaming table? These stories can help. […]...

Back here in the office after Gen Con. Hopefully you, too, are getting back into the regular swing of things. I know I could use another day or so to rest, but the news doesn’t stop and that means I can’t, either. For example, there’s a new set of Paladins available to pre-order fro...

With the drive to Indy yesterday, I obviously didn’t have much of a chance to make posts (and no, trying to type in the car all day was not an option. I would’ve gotten all the carsick). So today I bring you both the Midweek Snippets and today’s Terrain Corner together again in one ...

Did anyone else’s weekend just fly by? Heck, all of last week seemed to just rocket by. I usually end up with the same checkout clerk at the grocery store, since I go fairly early on Saturdays and there’s only a couple lanes open. I remember saying, “… didn’t we just do ...

The weekend is over and we’re once more back to the regular work week. Hopefully yours was good. I got my Age of Sigmar box set all put together. I had no major mess-ups during assembly. Though my right thumb does hurt from getting stabbed repeatedly by little, plastic spikes. Both the Sigmaran...

Busy Sunday here at the bear cave. The past couple days have been full of classic D&D action, and now it’s catch-up-with-all-the-work time. For the record, the DM of the game I played in knows me well. He picked a Totemic Druid for me to play and, of course, picked polar bear as my totem [...
