Review: Games Workshop's "Necromunda: Dark Uprising"

Review: Games Workshop’s “Necromunda: Dark Uprising”

Hey there, loyal readers and heretics alike! We are back with a review of the boxed set for Games Workshop’s new release, Necromunda: Dark Uprising! As many of you know, I’d been reviewing a good many of Games Workshop’s boxes lately, and in the wake of a bit of a post-GenCon lull, I’m back in the […]

"Scott Pilgrim" Miniature Games Level Up on Kickstarter

“Scott Pilgrim” Miniature Games Level Up on Kickstarter

The original Scott Pilgrim VS the World comics from Bryan Lee O’Malley were the perfect blend of post-teen angst, manga style art, and coming of age love story, and may have one of the most faithful movie adaptations in comic book history!   Renegade Game Studios launched Scott Pilgrim Miniatures: The World- Relaunch earlier this […]

Durgin Paint Forge: Classic Fantasy Minis with a Twist (Mini Spotlight)

Durgin Paint Forge: Classic Fantasy Minis with a Twist (Mini Spotlight)

Every once in a while, a company comes up with a line of miniatures that I fall head over heels in love with. There are plenty of exceptional independent sculptors out there, but from time to time I stumble across something that makes my jaw drop. Today, that was the Dwarf line from Durgin Paint […]

"Gaslands" - War Rig vs Highway Patrol Battle Report

My “Gaslands” Journey, Continued

Greetings, weary travelers! As you know we have been going through the Gaslands: Refuelled game quite a bit every Saturday and it seems that now is the time where things get a little bit… Batty. Now, I’m not talking about the massive issues with delirium caused by dehydration or insanity caused by the sudden and […]

Review: "Feast of Bones" for "Warhammer: Age of Sigmar"

Review: “Feast of Bones” for “Warhammer: Age of Sigmar”

Games Workshop has come out with so many different armies and races of beings for the mythos of their Warhammer multiverse. From elves to Eldar, ghouls to Tyranids, orcs to… well, Orks, there is a glut of races in the overall brand. So suffice it to say that a lot of the difficulty for Games Workshop’s […]

"Gaslands" - War Rig vs Highway Patrol Battle Report

“Gaslands” – War Rig vs Highway Patrol Battle Report

Gaslands: Refuelled is an interesting game. Recently it became known that Osprey Games had run out of their initial stock of the game’s rules manual, and it’s getting increasingly harder to get ahold of a physical copy from online retailers for that reason. This serves as a testament to how awesome this game truly is. […]

Journey Into the "Gaslands", Part 4

Hobby: Building The War Rig For “Gaslands: Refuelled”

Gaslands: Refuelled is a game very unlike most any other I’ve played. Set in a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic world where gas is the ultimate currency, Gaslands takes wasteland entertainment to a whole new level. While it shares a few similarities with Games Workshop’s Aeronautica Imperialis (which I reviewed here a month ago), Gaslands manages to take similar […]

Journey Into the "Gaslands", Part 4

Hobby: Journey Of A “Gaslands” Newcomer, Part 4

Hey all! So, because it’s been a few weeks of me writing weekly articles pertaining to Gaslands: Refuelled, I reckon I am no longer a “Newcomer” to the Gaslands. I just wanted to quickly explain the retitling of this story segment before diving into my fifth and final car, and then detailing my first game […]

"Gaslands: Refueled" to be Released Soon!

Hobby: Journey of a “Gaslands” Newcomer, Part 3

Hey there folks! Last Saturday I wrote about my continued journeys into the world of the game Gaslands, by Osprey Games. This series of articles started just a week before then. Today, I’m seeking to show off the rest of my load-out of cars for the new edition of the game, Gaslands: Refuelled. As discussed in […]

Hobby: Journey of a "Gaslands" Newcomer, Part 2

Hobby: Journey Of A “Gaslands” Newcomer, Part 2

Hey all! Last Saturday (September 21st), I wrote an article detailing the first steps I took towards playing the game Gaslands, by Osprey Games. Therein, I managed to get myself about nine die-cast miniature cars (Hot Wheels, for those wondering), and converted exactly three. Getting a decent paint job onto any of those vehicles was […]

Opinion: Why Tabletop Games Falter: "Arena Rex", "Malifaux", and More

Opinion: Why Wargames Falter: “Arena Rex”, “Malifaux”, and More

Last Sunday, I wrote a piece detailing a few trading card games which, while being super cool in concept, failed to attract a huge audience of players. In the end, they failed as a game for that reason and others. Today I want to go into this discussion from the angle of tabletop wargames and […]

"Gaslands: Refueled" to be Released Soon!

Hobby: Journey of a “Gaslands” Newcomer

“Gaslands: Refueled”, a new edition of the “Gaslands” game by Osprey Games, has come out and with it, a new batch of miniature wargame players have arisen from the woodwork. I am looking to join their ranks within the hobby, and wish to play the game to that end. Gaslands takes place on an alternate-futuristic […]

Review: Games Workshop's "Aeronautica Imperialis"

Review: Games Workshop’s “Aeronautica Imperialis”

Games Workshop has come out with a lot of games in the span of their existence – and I mean a lot. Between Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000, Necromunda, Age of Sigmar, Warcry, Kill Team… It’s a lot to handle. So, when Games Workshop came out with their primary airspace-combat game Aeronautica Imperialis and sent it our way, I was a bit skeptical of the design […]

"Guild Ball" Releasing Four New Player Models

“Guild Ball” Releasing Four New Player Models In Late August

Throughout the history of wargaming, companies have tried and tried again to appeal to different audiences. There have been sci-fi wargames, there have been high-fantasy wargames – there’s even been low-fantasy wargames. But when you veer into the world of sporting wargames, you fall into a niche that is relatively small in comparison, at least […]

“Star Wars: Legion” Previews Galactic Father/Son Reunion

Fantasy Flight Games just announced an epic pair of releases for Star Wars: Legion that may adjust the mechanics of the game for the better. Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader may already exist in the game, but two upcoming Operative Expansions will change the way players field these iconic characters. Previously, Star Wars: Legion players […]

Knight Models Announces 2nd Edition of "Harry Potter" Miniatures Game

Knight Models Announces 2nd Edition of “Harry Potter” Miniatures Game

Well, that was fast. Generally, a game is out for more than a couple of years before a second edition, but Knight Models have announced a second edition of the Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game will be up for pre-order on July 16th. That’s not even a year since the Harry Potter miniatures game hit […]

Citadel Contrast Paints: The Future is Here (REVIEW)

Citadel Contrast Paints: The Future is Here (REVIEW)

I have been painting miniatures for 35 years, so when I hear a company crowing about its new paint range for minis, I tend to turn down the volume a little. There have been a lot of “game changing” paints promoted over the last 20 years or so, and each has had some merits, but […]

Check Out Wargames Atlantic’s Awesome Skeleton Infantry Minis!

Every GM has that moment when they realize they might need a horde for an encounter, and if you use miniatures in your games, this can become a pretty expensive proposition. Then there’s those of us who indulge in a little simulated table top warfare, where you need a ton of minis to make an […]

Knight Models Set to Release More 'Dark Knight' Miniatures

Knight Models Set to Release More ‘Dark Knight’ Miniatures

After last month’s stellar reveal of their miniature line based off of the 2012 The Dark Knight Rises movie, Knight Models is back with two more releases from the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, but this time the miniatures are from 2008’s The Dark Knight. Why So Serious? This five model set retails for $44.95 and […]
