Feed me, Seymour! Ok, so it’s not exactly Little Shop of Horrors over at Wyrd with this Monday Preview, but it’s pretty close. You don’t need a green thumb in order to use this new figure, but I don’t see how it could hurt if you did as we take a look at the next […]...

Well, after quite an eventful week including having to spend a night at a friend’s place because my car was being fixed, it’s made its way to once more be Friday. Booyah. Though not exactly “cheering my way” into the weekend, it’s more like a sigh of relief. But hey, any...

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)....

While most people don’t look forward to Monday, many of us can agree that we look forward to the Monday preview that Wyrd posts up. This one continues the look at the various Emissary figures that are coming to the game. I wonder if this guy knows the Tengu guy from earlier…...

“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...

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...

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...

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...

I love old kung-fu movies. 36th Chamber of Shaolin. The Five Deadly Venoms. Heroes of the East. Challenge of the Masters. Half a Loaf of Kung-Fu. And, of course, Drunken Master. As such, I love when characters like those from the movies make it into minis games. Well, Wyrd has some new ones coming to...

As I mentioned earlier, you can either look at today as a Monday or a Wednesday. Sure, it’s the first day back at the office, but it’s also a short week. So we’re already a bit further through it, technically, than we would be otherwise. Well, we had a Terrain Corner earlier. That&#...

Orphanages already aren’t all sunshine and roses, and ones in the Malifaux world are just that much worse (being a sort of Dickensian-Burtonesque-Steampunk-Nightmare of a world that it is). Well, apparently the Dogsend Childrens Workshouse (definitely not to be confused with the Children’...

Well, yesterday was quite an exciting day around here. It certainly seemed to go by quickly enough. It was one of those, “Oh hey, it’s already noon!” and then seemingly 10min later, “Oh hey, it’s already 3pm!” and then 10sec later, “Oh hey, it’s already...

My favorite holiday of the year is coming up. Thanksgiving (for Americans, anyway. I know my Canadian friends have already celebrated it) is just over a week away. Of course, once we have Thanksgiving, we have the Christmas Shopping Season, kicking off on Black Friday. Wyrd is showing off what they&#...

The week is starting that final push towards the end. Let’s do our best to sprint into the weekend with emphasis, as opposed to just crawling there, gasping. I know I’ve got a lot of projects to keep me busy until the weekend, and then far into it. Those Space Marines aren’t going t...

Mondays aren’t all bad. You’ve got friends back at the office that you can catch up with about how their weekend was. There’s the new episode of Atop the 4th Wall to watch. Umm… you’re one day closer to the next weekend? And, of course, there’s Wyrd’s Monday ...

Monday sort of shot by like a rocket, at least for me. Seemed like I was just waking up when I was heading back to bed. Considering it was a Monday, I’d say that was entirely fine with me. Today’s rounding itself off a bit more, which is also fine. And since we’re right here [&helli...

My dad’s side of the family is from South Dakota, centered around Sioux Falls. We’d go there fairly often to see various family members. Many of them lived out on farms in the countryside. Several of them raised pheasants. So it was always something for “city-boy” me to go and...

So, there are some reasons to look forward to Monday. Many good webcomics update on Mondays (including my favorite). There’s Moe Mondays, so you can go get a nice burrito for lunch. I’m told there’s some decent Monday-night TV shows (I don’t watch a lot of TV). You have your c...

The busy Monday has calmed down into a bit more of a relaxed Tuesday. I’m happy about that, since while being busy keeps time moving on quickly through the day, even a “good busy” can easily turn into just “hectic” if too much starts getting piled on top. Thankfully, tha...

We all love our RPG books. But sometimes you just don’t want to carry them around with you. They can get heavy. You are, basically, carrying around a big log with you. As such, a lot of people have turned to using electronic means to transport their books. No, I don’t mean teleporters. I ...

October seems to be made for Wyrd. Or perhaps it’s vice-versa. Either way, it seems the two were made for each-other. As such, you can expect a lot of new minis for Malifaux, and that is certainly the case. The new sets include their first Story Encounter & Adventure Box, which has Malifau...
