Adventures in Mini-ing: Painting The Tenth Dragon

As a fun way to end 2017, I entered in to a local painting competition. In this brief article, I’ll offer some insight as to my creative process for this particular piece. It was a bit of a rush as I entered with around 10 days until the submission deadline! But I’m also of the ... Read more

A Hazardous Wind: Gaslands Impressions

Ah, who else remembers the good ol’ days of snake shaped racing cars that could unleash explosive barrages and hit ramps with enough speed to jump and successfully land hundreds of feet away with the driver’s spine still intact only to live and fight another day? Fine summer afternoons spent with automotive carnage (;D) and ... Read more

Once Upon a Wasteland. Wreck Age 2nd Edition Full Rules Impressions

I once, ok, maybe four-ish times, heard a guy somewhere say, “war never changes.” Really? Because I feel like it’s flavor of the week sometimes within the wargaming community. Everything changes. Maybe today I’m using d20s, tomorrow it’s cards, the eternal pre-measure vs no pre-measure battle…which is a war in itself. In this hobby, it’s ... Read more

Impulsive Imaginings – Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago Islands Step-by-Step!

I will admit, I dig the Frostgrave. Sure, it’s random as heck, there can be a campaign imbalance that develops…but the rules are simple, make sense, and it’s fun because crazy stuff happens. Most of all, however, I love the setting. There’s some about it’s generic simplicity that pulls on the familiarity complex of my ... Read more

The Light Ahead (The Walking Dead Campaign: Shawn’s Tale)

(Editor’s note: This is a short story that takes place after Chapter 1 of our Walking Dead Campaign.) “Get off me motherf-cker!” A lean, young man tosses off a punch. The creature’s head bounces back forcefully, bruised and moulded the way only decaying flesh is prone to do. The creature stumbles back, it’s exposed jaws ... Read more

Goin’ Rogueando. (An adventure with Rogue Stars!)

“So, what’s your favorite sci-fi series?” A common question, I would presume, in this hobby. We probably see and hear a lot of this Star Wars mumbo jumbo being dropped all around us, but how far it extends in to the “science” part is rather questionable. What about the good ol’ Trek? Eh, well, it’s ... Read more

AAR/Review- “It’s Gettin’ Cold In Here. So put on all your clothes!” FROSTGRAVE!

“Come hither, companions. Let me regale yet another tale of…” “Oh, grandpa, not ~another~ story of Felstad.” “Shut yer mutton holes ignorant whips, I said a regaling is to be done! A tale of my adventures, for some day you too shall need a shining beacon of wisdom to escape with yer lives!” *Children roll ... Read more

Through The World of Mini-ing. World Model Expo 2017, Exposed!

Few things in life truly infatuate me. The connections between light speed and causality. Missing pieces of the standard model of particle physics. The disparity between social ritual and necessity, and often my lack of either. ;D Actually, I guess I get infatuated with a lot of crap. It’s in my nature, but it makes ... Read more

Tutorial: SaltNHairspray Rust: Shake It, Shake It Real Good!

*cue music, you know you want to: doo doodoo doo. doo. doodoo doo doodoo* The deeper I get in to this hobby, the more I’m reflecting on my masochistic tendencies. Why do we slave over these little, tiny dudes and dudettes? Why are we trying to recreate these fantastic battle scenes from overhead, like a ... Read more

Hello all! Some relatively new blood here, and this is my first blog post on this site, of which I hope to write more in the near future as time enables. 😉 I participated in the Walking Dead All Out War playtest this Memorial Day and wrote up some impressions, which may or may not be ...
