We all know the… things that’ve been going on with Dust Studio and Battlefront over the past year. Rehashing it all here isn’t really important. What is important here and now is that Dust Studio will be part of the CMON booth at Gen Con in a week and Paolo Parente will be on-site t...

The world of Dark Age is ever-changing and evolving. Characters grow and adapt as the storyline continues on. Well, obviously such a thing would happen in the fluff, but it also happens in the rules for miniatures. New versions come out that show how the characters have progressed. St. Joan is one su...

On Friday, CMON posted up their new board game releases they’ll have at Gen Con, but what about Dark Age, their post-apocalyptic sci-fi skirmish game? Well, you’ll be glad you asked when you look at the giant list of new releases that will be at the show. Like their previous book release ...

The other day we showed you a crop of new Dark Age minis. Well, that wasn’t the only set that CMON has been working on. The forces of St. John are also getting a bit of a revamp, as well as some new figures. And I know the mechanical dragon was pretty cool, but the […]...

Social Media. It’s everywhere. I know I’ve mentioned before that when I originally signed up for Facebook, I had to have my Kansas State University e-mail address verified. Now, look at what I do. I deal with social media all day. It’s basically my job (since I get a lot of stories ...

CMON is showing off some new sculpts for Dark Age, specifically St. Mark on his mechanical dragon as well as a look at the new Shade sculpts they’ve been working on. I need to look into getting a mechanical dragon to ride to work on. Sure, you’re open to the elements and such, and it [&he...

Strange to think that Gen Con is just a touch over 2 weeks away. It’s going to be here before you even realize it. If you’re prepping for any of the events, you are hopefully well into it by now. If not, you’d better get a move on. One event you may be looking to […]...

The end is nigh! The Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter will end in just 24 hours (that’s 8pm, Eastern, on July 6th, for those of you that see this not immediately at posting time). As expected, the total just keeps on rising, having crossed over $3 million and still going. There’s bunch...

With the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter campaign winding down (or winding up, depending on how you look at it, with all the unlocks expected in the next couple days), you might have forgotten about the original Zombicide game. Maybe the Medieval form isn’t quite for you. Maybe you prefer t...

The end is near! … Really, there’s only 3 days left in the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter. But CMON and Guillotine Games aren’t just sitting back, resting. Oh no, it’s a sprint to the end, as they give it their all, adding even more to the campaign. This time around it...

There’s less than a week left in the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter campaign. That generally means that we’re about to see a big ramp up in backers and pledges, which means more unlocks and add-ons are coming. But that’s not to say that there’s been no action in the past ...

Hard to imagine that a week ago at this time, we were elbow-deep in the CMON Expo. I love the Expo. It’s small enough that you don’t feel pressured to be running around to try and see everything, but still big enough that you’re never bored, going “what is there to do?” ...

You’d think you’d unlock the doors, but when zombies are around, you’re more likely to want to add more on. This goes extra-true if there’s an Abominalpha running around. Both of these things are the case over in the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter campaign. Continuing to ...

Terror. Corruption. Redemption. Those are the themes of The Others, the new game from Guillotine Games and Studio McVey. We’ve been seeing some pretty sweet-looking models (one of which we did an unboxing for last year), but now it’s time to get some real information about the game. We ha...

The number of people looking to fight against the zombie hordes in Zombicide: Black Plague keep rising. They have made it past the $2mil. mark on the Kickstarter campaign. To celebrate, they wanted to something big… very big. Horrendously, grotesquely, hugely big. That something is… the A...

It would seem as though the change of venue has caught the attention of gamers the world over. The launch of Zombicide: Black Plague quickly passed the funding goal (even with the hiccup in the server service that Kickstarter had right at the start) and has shot up well over $1 million in its first [...
