Many, many, many times I have said it’s great for a game to have two-player starter sets. With one purchase, you can get yourself everything you need to get going right away with a game (except for maybe needing some glue). Well, with the latest releases for Dark Age, they, too, now have a 2-pl...

It might be winter, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things that go “bump” in the night you should be concerned about. The February releases for Dark Age are up and they feature a lot of the Dargyri Shadow Caste. But if your response to spiders is “Kill it with fire!&#...

Being firmly into winter (despite what the thermometer says here in Atlanta), that means we’ve got some rather short days going on. Sure, it’s around a month since the solstice, but the days are still pretty short. As such, there’s plenty of shadows within which you can lurk. Also r...

The world of Samaria is harsh and unforgiving. That means the inhabitants of it must also be harsh and unforgiving. Such is the case with the new releases from CoolMiniOrNot for Dark Age. Even the resculpted combat medic is unforgiving. I mean, look at the size of that needle!...

The latest Dark Age releases are available now over in the CoolMiniOrNot webshop. They’re a trio of resculpts of some rather classic minis. I’m always a fan of resculpts. I love seeing how a model can be updated with changes in general aesthetic styles in gaming, as well as an increase in...

As you know, I’m a fan of gaming. If that gaming also helps a charitable foundation, then that takes something already pretty cool and just turns the awesome up to 11. The NOVA Open Charitable Auction works to raise funds for charities by selling raffle tickets for armies for various games. The...

It’s day 3 here at Adepticon. It’s been a wild day… and I’m not even talking about the gaming. We woke up to some lovely weather. And then, just about 10min. ago, for about a minute, the lights all went out in the dealer’s hall/gaming area. I just missed snapping a photo...

Well, we just passed Easter last weekend. A lot of people took the time to go to church, even if they don’t normally make a habit of it (whereas nuns do tend to make a habit of it… Get it? Get it?… never mind). Anyway, the Forsaken are Dark Age‘s religious fanatics and they...

A New Year brings a new look to some old models over in Dark Age. You know, as times change and such, old sculpts, as good as they might’ve originally been, and how much we’d drooled over them in the past… they can just get to feel stale. So that’s where a good reculpt comes [...
