Wyrd Previews Electrocutioners For The Other Side

6 October 2017 - 9:19am
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.

New Death Korps of Krieg Sets Available to Order From Forge World

6 October 2017 - 7:00am
One of the more-popular Imperial Guard groups is the Death Korps of Krieg. I’ve always loved how they look, with their trench coats and gas masks. It’s a very WWI-feel to me, which I think is awesome, since I think that war gets overlooked a lot more than it should. Anyway, there’s some new units, […]

Crazy Commute Card Game Up On Kickstarter

5 October 2017 - 2:00pm
I get to work at a time that most people would consider “ridiculously early.” A major reason for that is because, depending on when, exactly, I leave, my commute can easily double in duration, due to traffic. We’ve all been stuck in a traffic jam at some point. And we’ve all wished we could just […]

Wyrd Posts Up October Releases

5 October 2017 - 12:00pm
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 what’ll […]
