Gamers are a competitive lot. It’s sort of there right in the name. If you’re gaming, you want to win. Even casual gamers, such as myself, still want to do well and hopefully win the games we’re playing. That extends out to adding colored goop to your minis. For those who are intere...

A friend of mine used to be in the Marines. He served overseas for a couple years. While there, they’d still go on regular training missions. One of them involved having to get from one place to another out in the desert. Well, unfortunately, the guy holding the compass was doing so right next to [&h...

Battlefield medics have a very rough job (putting it mildly). Everyone out there is looking to tear each-other to shreds. They’re looking to put people back together again. Solar Auxilia Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan was a great surgeon before some of his “experiments” were discovered ...

Orks! Orks! Orks! Orks! Back at my old LGS in St. Louis, they’d hold quarterly used gaming auctions. The miniatures day ones always ran long. I remember it being 3am or so, with still plenty of items yet to go, Dave (the auctioneer and owner of the shop) would just hold up some Orks and [&helli...

Though my main force back when I played 40k was Orks, after a while I kinda wanted an army that had an armor save, so I bought some Dark Angels, because I still wanted something green, apparently. But then I realized I missed melee. So I went with some Space Wolves for a while. Since […]...

Monday and Tuesday are in the rear view mirror. Meanwhile, we work our way towards the weekend. We’re halfway there, people. We can make it. But if we’re gonna do it, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Thankfully, that’s just the sort of thing we have for you righ...

We once more find ourselves perched on the precipice of the weekend. We’ve been working all week and soon it will be time to kick back and relax for a couple days. Of course, I’m sure for many of you, “kick back and relax” means “get in all the gaming action you can!!!&#...

Battlefleet Gothic takes the ground-based battles we know oh so well from the 41st millennium and expands them up into the stars. Unfortunately, it’s a pretty rare thing to find on gaming tables these days. However, fans of the game will soon have a new way to play, and bringing in new players ...

A lot of people that play Warhammer 40k play Space Marines. They’re the iconic army of not just the game but of the entire universe. So it only seems appropriate. Well, with all those players, people are going to want to differentiate themselves from one-another, and the various Codices that ex...

Seems that J.K. Rowling isn’t the only one that can create a book of beasts set in their setting. Ok, so Godbeasts isn’t just a book of monsters, but is a new supplement for Age of Sigmar that has a bunch of new things inside it for the game. But still, it was the first […]...

Well, it’s time to celebrate a rather special anniversary. And also time to make a lot of us feel rather old… Games Workshop is celebrating thirty years of their Space Marines. Though considering how long they’ve been around, it’s not hard to see why they have become so ingrai...

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...

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...

Forge World was busy trying to give away a set of Titans. Chances are you didn’t win one. It’s ok. I know I didn’t win one, either. But if you find yourself in the position that your 40k opponent did win one (or you just want a gigantic gun on tracks on your side of […]...

Hey everyone! It’s been a very busy morning here at Adepticon. I’ve already seen some awesome armies, some cool, new models, and talked to some great people who obviously love our hobby. If you’re not following our Facebook page than you’ve been missing out. What sort of thing...

Well, the “good guys” have gotten some new minis recently for Age of Sigmar. In order to keep a nice balance, that means the bad guys should get some new figures. Well, we don’t have any dragons yet, but we do have the new Gorechosen Champions you can put in your orders for....

It would seem that everything isn’t right on Ghosar Quintus. The locals have started to talk a bit funny, with sounds of strange aliens entering their speech. Oh, and there’s the Deathwatch Kill Team that’s gone missing. That’s probably a bad sign as well. We should probably send in another to check ...

As games grow, expansions are made that have new rules inside of them. After a while, though, it can become rather unwieldy to try and carry around all those different supplements. And then you find yourself having to flip between different books to find the rule for a specific unit. “Was it th...

It was announced that they were going to be recreating their Specialist Games Lines and coming out with side products to expand the offerings to us, the gamers. We’ve seen several new releases already, the...

While I have since strayed away from playing them on a weekly basis, I’ll always be a greenskin at heart. The Orks were my favorite faction to play back when I played 40k regularly. I’ve still got many of the figures, should I get around to playing once more. One of my favorite characters...

The leader of the pack. *motorcycle revving* If you’ve got wolves, you’re going to have someone in charge of it. Well, we’ve gotten a bunch of new, young, brash Space Wolf minis. Now it’s time to get some heroes to be in charge and put all that rambunctiousness to good use....

It really is the time of Warhammer 30k. It seems we’re always getting new things for the Horus Heresy, as opposed to furthering the adventures happening in the 41st millennium. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with that, mind you. Just pointing out an observation. If it means co...

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve gotten something from the fantasy side of Forge World. Most of their releases tend to focus more on the sci-fi side of things. But such is not the case today. Age of Sigmar is getting a new mini in the form of Skaarac the Bloodborn. And he’s certa...

As many people that play 40k know, a lot of people play some form of Space Marines. It makes sense since there’s numerous chapters, even before you get into Chaos and the various marines that they can put on the battlefield. So making your army stand out from your buddy’s army can be a bi...

While I know most of the country is colder than it is here in Atlanta, that’s not to say that it’s not cold here in Atlanta. People are looking for ways to keep warm. I’m guessing, though, if everyone had themselves a giant dragon-thing named a Magmadroth, we’d be able to stay...

Makes it a lot easier to just click a couple buttons and order like-items than to have to hunt around for each one individually. Also, ...

Well, we’ve had one “popular board game turned into video game” update for today. Why not another? In this case, it’s that Space Hulk: Ascension will soon be making its way to your PS4s (though, currently, I only have a PS2. … Don’t Mock Me!). This is because HR Ga...
