2017 Hobby year in review

2017 was a big hobby year for me. I managed to play a bunch of new games that I love, and I got a bunch of projects finished: My first finished minis of the year were the Prefecture of Ryu faction starter for Bushido. I learned how to use my cutting machine to make scale ... Read more

Song of Blades and Heroes at Valorcon

Earlier this month, I ran a game of Song of Blades and Heroes at Valorcon, Chicago’s nascent convention for all manner of tabletop and digital games. In this game, a group of orcs faced off against lizardmen with their living metal mercenaries.  The two groups were searching the abandoned island of Lacerta, another location in ... Read more


A Harryhausen-Themed Stop-Motion Monster Warband

I have always been an avid fan of stop-motion effects in film. Once the bread and butter special effects in the age before digital animation and CGI, they are now seldom seen. I grew up on films such as “The Seven Voyages of Sinbad” and “Clash of the Titans” wherein actors hacked and stamped in ... Read more
