Year 2014


Hotel Registration Now Open for CMON Expo 2015

CMON Expo will be here before you know it! It's a great convention because the special guests aren't sequestered away in some back room until their panel and then hidden once more. No, they're out there on the convention floor, just talking with anyone and everyone. Want to play Kaosball with Eric Lang? You can do that. Want to paint next to Jen Haley? You can do that. And of course, there will be much, much more.
Pre-reg and hotel registration are up and running, so get your tickets now.

New Thureophoroi Light Infantry from Warlord Games

Warlord Games has some new Thureophoroi Light Infantry available over in their webshop. While not "the world's oldest profession," mercenaries have certainly been around a long time, too. At least, long enough to have fought in some of the biggest battles in all of history. Well, now you can bring some to the biggest battles of your tabletop (or any small battles, too) as well. And because you want to make sure that the mercs stay in line and do as they're told, they've got a command set for them, too.

Fantasy Flight posts A Preview of the M3-A Interceptor Expansion Pack for X-Wing

Fantasy Flight Games gives us another look inside the Scum and Villainy faction for X-Wing with a preview of the M3-A Interceptor. Not exactly the most iconic ship in the Star Wars universe (in fact, I can't say I remember hearing about it, but it's been a long time since I read any of the extended universe stuff), the M3-A is sort of a middle point between the big, heavy hitter of an X-Wing and a light, nimble TIE-Fighter. There is a "heavy" version you can create as well with the expansion cards in order to sort of fit into the Y-Wing role as well.

More Algoryn releases for Beyond the Gates of Antares

Warlord Games continues to expand their Beyond the Gates of Antares line with some new Algoryn releases. They have their new AI Squad, which is cool. But for me, I've always been about the big guns. They've got a new mortar and a plasma cannon platform as well. And to make sure you've got your target squarely in the crosshairs, they've got targeter probes as well.
