Z-Man Games Previews Tea & Trade Expansion For Fields of Arle

18 January 2018 - 9:00am

Blitzfreeze Campaign for Five Men in Normandy Now Available

17 January 2018 - 1:00pm
As cold as it might get here in Atlanta, it’s nothing like the cold that can hit Russia. In particular, the winter of ’44 was pretty bad, especially if you were a German soldier, caught up in the advancing Red Army as they made their way to liberate Leningrad. But that’s where you find yourself […]

It’s a cold and snowy day here over in Atlanta. A thin layer of ice is concealed under a small blanket of snow. As such, it’s “work from home” day for the bear. Atlantans tend to have rather dubious driving skills in ideal conditions. Throw in some ice and snow and it’s not so much […]

17 January 2018 - 8:00am
I think it’s safe to say that many of you reading this now also watched the X-Files back in the 90s, and quite possibly saw the newest season (while I’ve seen older episodes, I have to admit I’ve not seen the new ones). It was always great talking about the events in that show, since […]

New Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Head of Column Available From Warlord Games

16 January 2018 - 3:00pm
I love a parade. I mean, I was in Marching Band for many years, and so I’ve participated in quite a few. The pomp. The pageantry. The colorful uniforms. Granted, it’s not just a parade when it’s during a campaign. Those long lines of troops aren’t just showing off. They’re headed to the battlefield. At […]

Path of the Black Flag Pathfinder Supplement Up On Kickstarter

16 January 2018 - 2:00pm
One of the series I watch on YouTube is Renegade Cut. Recently, they had a video about Anarchy as it pertains to the movie V for Vendetta. Anarchy isn’t quite what most of us think about, at least not in its traditional sense. And while I can’t say that I’m an Anarchist, it’s interesting to […]
