The strangeness of Arkham isn’t just limited to its creepy buildings like the Asylum and Miskatonic University. It’s making its way out into the streets. Everyday people are becoming corrupted by the malevolent forces at work. Before everyone becomes scaled, tentacled, slime-spewing…...

It’s always important to make sure you and your opponent are on the same page when it comes to rules. It’s also good to see that a company is supporting a game they make, wanting it to be as good and balanced as possible. If you’re a Star Wars: Armada player, you’ll want to ch...

Droids are just an everyday part of life in the Star Wars universe. They’re everywhere, but it takes a large support staff to keep them going. Just like organic creatures need doctors, the droids need repairmen and repairwomen and repairsmizmars to keep them going. In Fully Operational, the new...

One thing about many secondary weapons in the X-Wing Miniatures Game is that most of them run out after just a single use. There’s an upgrade where you can get a second shot with your missiles or bombs, but still, that’s it. Well, with the upcoming release of the Scurrg H-6 Bomber, anothe...

Grand Admiral Thrawn. Yeah, I just got a little giddy there, too. I might just have to build me a Star Wars: Destiny deck that has him as one of the characters. I’ll be able to do so once Star Wars: Destiny’s newly-announced set, Empire at War, hits store shelves. That’s going to be...

Last weekend, I got to watch my first full game of Runewars. It’s an interesting-looking game. The two players were playing a 200 point army, which is apparently a “standard size.” Though, since both really just had a couple starter-boxes to go with, it was kind of a stretch to get ...

I’ve always been more of a “dog person” than a “cat person.” And within that, I’ve always preferred the larger breeds (German Shepherd and Great Pyrenees) to the smaller ones. However, if I could get a Leonx and have it as a pet, yeah, I’d probably want to ri...

“Let the wookie win.” Well, you probably don’t want to let that extend to “ships piloted by wookies or used around the planet of Kashyyk” because then you might not be winning too many more games of X-Wing, as Fantasy Flight is coming out with the Auzituck Gunship. They&...

When you think of elves, you think of guys with long hair, pointy ears, and bows and arrows. It’s just sort of a thing you expect. Well, in Runewars, the Latari Elves aren’t going to disappoint you, as they do have a regiment of guys with long hair, pointy ears, and bows and arrows. They&...

Normally, you don’t want your own ships just crashing into others while fighting in space… or really down on a planet’s surface, either. But sometimes it’s just what is going to get the job done so your side can win. Entire strategies have been built around such tactics, and s...

Each faction in Runewars has their various troop units and characters, but they’ve also got that one “big” unit that stalks around the board, being rather intimidating and taking out enemies. For the upcoming Latari Elves faction, those are the Aymhelin Scions, of which we get a pre...

Just because you’re out doing things just for credits doesn’t mean you can’t be one of the best of the best out there. I mean, if you’re good, you get paid more, right? So it’s with that in mind that Fantasy Flight is coming out with a new elite pack for their X-Wing Min...

Most of the time when you think about Cthulean horrors, you think of skulking around in the dark, or looking through a no-often-used part of an old, dusty library, or maybe a small, New England town in the fog. It’s normally not about whole cities being wiped off the map. But that’s what&...

While the rank-and-file troopers might get much of the job done, they wouldn’t be nearly as effective without the strong leaders that spearhead the charges and direct the arrows. For the Latari Elves, the upcoming faction for Runewars, one of their leaders is Aliana of Summersong. Fantasy Fligh...

Another TIE variant is making its way to your tabletops in the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. This time, it’s the TIE Aggressor. This isn’t the first time we’ve see a TIE with a turret on it, to be fair. But it will give you some more options for your squadrons....

If there’s one thing that the space battles in Star Wars taught us, it’s never underestimate the power of a fighter squadron. X-Wings and a light cruiser take out the Death Stars. An A-Wing crashing takes out the Executor. Squadrons of fighters can really swing a battle in your favor. And...

A couple of my friends have gotten deep into Runewars. They feel the game flows fairly well and plays rather smoothly. I’ve yet to really have a chance to give it a go (so many games, so little time… *sigh*). For those that were waiting for the game to get a few more miniatures out [&hell...

A good friend of mine used to be a combat engineer. That is to say that he blew up bridges for a living for a while. In the Star Wars universe, the Rebellion especially needs members who are force-equalizers like that, willing to go and take out the enemy’s ability to fight and get around. [&he...

In fantasy combat games, thinning out the enemy ranks before you enter melee with them is a must. You don’t want entire regiments of enemy soldiers meeting up with yours, if you can avoid it. In order to help out with that, the Daqan Lords in Runewars are getting some ranged support in the form...
