Malifaux‘s been around for a while now. There’s some Masters that have been around for that whole time that could use a bit of a facelift. That’s what they’re going to be getting with the new Vintage range of figures, which Wyrd is showing off in today’s Monday Preview....

Well, it’s not really a Monday Preview this week from Wyrd. But it’s certainly something that I think is just as good, if not a lot better. You’ve all read how I love when companies post up the rules for their games for free online. I think it shows a lot of trust in their […...

Monday’s gone. Now we’ve got ourselves elbow-deep into Tuesday. I know a lot of people that will be headed to Boston this weekend for PAX East. Well, along the way, you could listen to some gaming podcasts. Good thing we’ve got them all together in our Podcast Roundup. Today we have...

Well, we had a Queen musical interlude this morning. We’ll end the day with one from CCR. I can remember the fourth of July, Runnin’ through the backwood bare. And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin’, Chasin’ down a hoodoo there. Chasin’ down a hoodoo there. Born o...

As I’ve mentioned before on the site, I’m more of a dog person than a cat person (I’d be a bear person, but getting a couple of polar bears as pets is surprisingly difficult when you live in an apartment in Atlanta). So when I saw today’s Monday Preview from Wyrd, I didn’...

As we get to the weekend, some of us will be headed to our LGS tomorrow in order to get a full day of gaming in. If you’re like me, you’re a morning person (so chances are you’re not like me) and would therefore get to the LGS right at open and have a couple […]...

Wyrd is coming out with a new Malifaux book soon. It’s called Ripples of Fate. In this week’s preview, we get a look at a couple new figures (well, the artwork for them, anyway) that’ll be in the book....

It’s early Sunday morning, and that means packing things up here in the room. It’s the final day of Adepticon. If you’ve been here, I hope you’ve had a good time. If you’ve not been here, I hope the photos have helped you live vicariously through my lens. To help with th...

You know, just because you’re a fish/lizard/monster-thing that lives in a swamp and carries around an anchor doesn’t mean you have to dress poorly. Take today’s Wyrd preview, for example. He’s got a nice coat and jaunty cap....

At the end of this week, Wyrd will be having their Easter sale (makes sense, since this Friday is Good Friday and Sunday is Easter. It wouldn’t make much sense if they were having a Cinco De Mayo sale or a 4th of July sale starting this Friday). So you can make sure you get […]...

Break on through to the other side! Break on through to the other side! I love this track. The Other Side is also the name of the new game coming out from Wyrd. It focuses on what’s happening on Earth in the Malifaux universe. And today we get a look at the art for one […]...

With any luck, your Monday went by without a hitch. It was a rather productive one over here. Lots to get done. Lots got done. News posts. Scheduled in one review that went live. Working on the next. Another couple on-deck. To help get through the rest of the week, I could really do with […]...

With Monday being what it is, usually people aren’t all that excited that it’s here. We do our best here to make it not be so bad. We’ve got our Terrain Corner. We had a special exclusive Guild Ball preview. Wyrd also does their best in making Monday a bit better with their regular ...

As I have mentioned on numerous occasions before, when it comes to painting contests, you need not worry about me swooping in and taking the prize away from you. My talent for the application of colorful goop is “barely passable” at best. So it’s all the other great painters out the...

Along with the return to the office and our first Terrain Corner feature for the week, Monday also brings us the Wyrd Preview (which is often also a weird preview, but that’s beside the point). So this Monday is no different as we get a look at the next Emissary of Fate....

While I hope your weekend is going to be full of gaming, there’s possibly going to be some downtime in there as well. That’s alright, those downtimes can still be full of gaming. For example, you could take a look at Wyrd Chronicles Issue 22, which is available for free now to download....

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)....

“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...

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...

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’...
