Over the past week or two, I’ve been watching through my collection of Terry Gilliam movies. He is, easily, my favorite director, and his commentary tracks are always awesome. As such, it was just a couple days ago I saw, “Listen you stupid bastard, you’ve got no arms left!” &...

In any society, there’s going to be those who don’t want to follow society’s rules and would rather just forge their own path. This often means taking from others, leading to a rough life of banditry. Certainly, there were those types in feudal Japan, and Warlord Games is letting yo...

It’s Monday morning here (though I know this is going to be posted in the afternoon). I’m trying to type up as much of my posts today before the storm gets really bad, just in case power and/or internet goes out. Also, working from home since they closed the office. But neither rain nor s...

Ah yes, another 2-player starter set. We all know how much I love them. This time around, it’s heading over London during WWII. The Battle of Britain was a major event in the course of the war, with British and German pilots fighting it out in close-quarters dogfights. Warlord Games’ Bloo...

Napoleon had basically conquered all of Europe. Then he decided he’d go an invade Russia. History tells us how well that worked out for him. But you never know. Maybe you could’ve done better if you’d been in charge. That’s what you’ll get to try out with A Clash of Eagl...

I’ve long been a big fan of armored units. Sure, infantry are fine, but it’s tanks and other heavy gear that really gets me going, “Oooh, that’s cool.” I know many of you out there agree. Heck, you’d probably want to play a game that was really all just tanks on a ...

Arguably the best tank deployed during the war, the King Tiger was feared by Allied tank commanders due to its formidable armor and ability to take out enemy takes at over 1.5 miles away. Lord only knows what would have happened if more had been produced, or if they hit the field earlier in the [&hel...

Who wants to walk into battle? Nobody, that’s who. You want to get there in style. And what’s cooler than getting to the fight in a cool motorcycle? Perhaps a tank? Well, the Germans were doing both in WWII, and Warlord Games is giving you two vehicles related to that. The first is the ne...

One thing about Historical games is that you often get to play characters that were actual people and had actual lives. … I guess it’s a bit different if you play a young version of them and they get killed off in a fight… Ah well, that’s half the fun. Anyway, Warlord Games is...
