Fridays are already pretty damn awesome. Then Wyrd steps in with their regular Friday previews and things just get awesome-er. Hey, no red, squiggly line under it means that’s a real word. Anyway, they continue their look at The Other Side with a preview of the Infiltrators. When the King’...

You know, with Wyrd posting up a regular preview on Mondays, it’s not such a bad day after all. It could certainly be worse, is what I’m saying. This time around, it’s another look at Above the Law for Through the Breach. Check out the Witchling Handler....

Working in the gaming industry, there’s a lot of going ahead with plans as set on your timetables and hoping that everything should work out right. Occasionally, they don’t. Something comes back from the printer’s that’s messed up. A sculptor’s work gets destroyed in a f...

It could be said that all advertising is some form of propaganda. And, really, all the stories on here are a form of advertising. So, it could be argued, that I’m in the propaganda business. Though I’m not really sure I like the ring of that. But waddyagonnado? You’re gonna read abo...

We’re just a couple days away from the start of all the Black Friday Sales (well, except for those couple that’ve already started). In the case of Wyrd, they tend to go all-out, and this year is certainly no different. They’ve posted up what they’ll be selling. It’s quit...

You know, if you’re going to have a gun, you might as well know how to use it properly. And not just little guns, either. But big ones. Really big ones. Really, really big ones. Such is the case with the Gunner pursuit from Through the Breach: Above the Law. We get a look at […]...

I love alternate sculpts for minis. I truly do. They’re a great way to add some personality and customization to your armies and teams without having to be a professional modeller, yourself. Plus, for those that are sticklers for such, they’re not proxies, so they’re good in any tou...

While I’m taking the day off, the folks over at Wyrd aren’t. They’ve got their regular Friday preview up. This time, it’s the Armored Whelk. … Man, the last time I thought about whelks was the last time I watched that Monty Python skit where John Cleese does the nature d...

Having an app to help you play your miniatures games is nice. You can have all your cards, as well as your opponent’s cards, right at your finger tips. Need to look up a rule? That’s usually on there, too. Keep track of wounds and abilities used. It’s got a lot going on. That’...

Bureaucracy makes the world go ’round. It might not initially seem like the most thrilling class to take in a game, the one that has connections and is good at negotiations, but all of those are very useful skills to have. In Wyrd’s Monday Preview, they’re showing off the Bureaucrat...

You’d think that crows would fly, or just kinda walk. But these are Crow Runners. They’re an Abyssinian unit for Wyrd’s upcoming The Other Side minis game. And seeing how Wyrd loves to make Fridays as awesome as they can be, they’ve posted up a preview....

Mondays are generally considered pretty rough. You’re ripped from the weekend and tossed back into the work week as far from another weekend as possible. But Wyrd does their best to soften the blow with their regular previews. They’ve decided to give us another look at the upcoming Above ...

It’s Friday. So that means a couple things. Mostly, me being excited about the weekend. But it also means that it’s time for a new preview from Wyrd Games. They are continuing their series on The Other Side today with a look at the Empire Dragoons. Because a cavalry charge is still an eff...

It’s Fridaaaaaaaay! Gateway to the weekend! Woo! My weekend is going to be chill. I mean… sure, as a polar bear, I’m always chill, but I’m just gonna hang out at home. I’ve actually been meaning to give the place a good cleaning. But next weekend will be full of gaming. ...

Just yesterday, I was talking with my friend about a game and a rules question came up. We didn’t have the rulebook on hand, but we did have a digital version of it. So looking up the rule was super-easy. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love flipping through a rulebook, but having a digital [&...

Wyrd keeps a nice, steady schedule for their previews. I can certainly appreciate that. I’m a big fan of routine. So, as it’s Monday, that means some new art to look at. In this case, it’s from the Through the Breach book, Above the Law. Check out the Commander....

It’s Monday! Ok, so it’s not. It’s actually Tuesday. I can tell because of the shirt I’m wearing. Many of us had Monday off here in the states, including me. So it’s a bit of catch-up this morning. One item is Wyrd’s regular Monday post. In this case, it’s so...

I hate when the power goes out. And I’m sure most of you would agree. It’s never an opportune time. It’s always, “damn. I was right in the middle of ____.” Well, if you were an Electrocutioner, you could probably just plug your big gun-thing into the socket and power up ...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! At least, as far as I’m concerned, anyway. And playing Malifaux certainly is appropriate, as it’s got a rather spooky and macabre feel to it. And now you can check out what will be released this month for the game (as well as a sneak-peek at...

It’s halfway over. The work week is about half-done for most of us. With any luck, you’re looking forward to a weekend of gaming. I might be doing some of that. But I can guarantee that I’ll be doing some baking. Actually, that’ll start tomorrow. We’re having a chili and...

You know, if you want an illegal bayou, or don’t want to have to pay all sorts of nasty import taxes on a bayou, you get yourself a bayou smuggler. Only they are able to get these hard-to-transport marshy outlets of a lake or river to you. *gets handed a note* Oh… they don’t actuall...

It’s Wyrds tradition to book-end the work week with previews. Mondays we get some new Malifaux artwork. Friday we get a The Other Side preview. Well, I’ve got my Friday shirt on. So that must mean it’s time for a The Other Side preview. And Wyrd’s right on time to give it to u...

Most painting competitions out there have you paint up a single piece and submit it as your entry. Wyrd’s Iron Painter is like that… kinda, except for the fact that you’re doing that multiple times in a row, each time with a new piece that has to be better than the last one if you [...
