Talk Wargaming Hiring Graphic Artists

19 March 2018 - 3:00pm
A lot of people feel that working in the gaming industry is like working at Willy Wonka’s factory. I have to say, it’s not quite like that. It’s a job, like every other job. Are there cool things that go on? Certainly. But there’s still lots of things to do. And while you might pick […]

Armies & Legions & Hordes Book Up On Kickstarter

19 March 2018 - 2:00pm
Miniatures gamers know that it can be exciting to get into a new project, but once you dive in and you realize just what all there is to do, it can be hard to power through. Even small-model-count games can seem daunting. So, how do you make it? Well, Dave Taylor has been doing this […]

What’s Changed in DreadBall Second Edition?

19 March 2018 - 1:00pm
Whenever a game goes through an edition change, there’s going to be things that stay the same and things that change. I mean, there’s a new edition, so there’s gotta be changes. But many players might be anxious to see what those are. Did a favorite mechanic get an overhaul? Did a model’s rules change? […]

Monday Terrain Corner

19 March 2018 - 11:00am
Aaaaaaand we loop around to Monday. No, I’m not really a fan of it, either. But, that’s the way the world works. We can still try and make the most of it by thinking about next weekend and the gaming that will (hopefully) be had. And with that gaming probably comes terrain. Today in the […]

The Mermaid’s Blessing RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

19 March 2018 - 10:00am
Pre-made adventures give GMs a ready-to-go group of game sessions. They give you everything you need and you can have a group go through them over the course of several sessions. The Mermaid’s Blessing is a new adventure for 5th Edition that’s up on Kickstarter now. I don’t really think that these mermaids are going […]

Wyrd Previews Fitzsimmons And His Saboteurs

19 March 2018 - 8:01am
Fitzsimmons and his Saboteurs sounds like a hipster punk band. I mean, doesn’t it? Can’t you just see them up on stage? Top hats and bowlers with giant safety pins in them? Overcoats with patches all over them? Monocle with a spiked chain? Anyway, they’re what we get a look at in today’s Monday Preview […]

New Releases and Pre-Orders Available From Warlord Games

19 March 2018 - 7:00am
Yeah, that headline’s a bit vague. But Warlord Games did one of their “here’s a whoooooooooole ton of stuff!” releases. And so, either it’s put a whole bunch of their mixed games together, or have almost half of today’s posts just about the new stuff. There’s lots of new Viking/Saxon pieces for Hail Caesar. There’s […]

Forgebane Box Set Available to Order From Games Workshop

19 March 2018 - 6:00am
I feel like we should be listening to Anvil – Metal on Metal when typing up and reading this post. In the grimdark future of the 41st millennium, the soft, fleshy, biological form is seen by many as old and outdated. Why have bones that can break and are hard to replace when you can […]

Review Roundup

17 March 2018 - 11:00am
Erin go Bear! I’m actually half-Irish. My grandfather on my mother’s side was actually an Irish-Catholic cop in Chicago, because stereotypes come from somewhere. So, while you’re out having your corned beef and cabbage (which is more American than Irish, but whatever), let’s also get you some reviews. Today we have: Quest for El Dorado, […]

Assault Publishing Releases Shadows in the Void: First Encounters

16 March 2018 - 1:00pm
In this day and age, with so many games out there, it’s impossible to buy and keep up with them all. Even just buying rulebooks for games you want to try can get to be prohibitively expensive. That’s where free trial versions of rules come in. I love when companies do this. And that’s why […]

Wyrd Previews Immolated Rhino For The Other Side

16 March 2018 - 11:30am
If you were to think of a rhino that would belong to the Cult of the Burning Man, you would probably think that said rhino would be on fire or somesuch. Makes perfect sense. That kinda seems like that’s what they’re getting. In today’s The Other Side preview from Wyrd, we get a look at […]
